Product Update: Branded YouTube Video Library

February 10, 2021

CountingWorks PRO subscribers can now create and post branded videos to their YouTube channels directly from the portal. These videos are created specifically for tax and accounting practices to reach their clients and prospects on topics that matter to them. Plus, having an active YouTube channel will have significant SEO benefits, as YouTube processes more than 3 billion searches a month. 

Here’s how to take advantage of this new feature:
