How to use YouTube to promote your business

YouTube is a site that allows you to upload videos for free. They make their money from advertising revenues. If you look at it the other way around, you are providing them with free video content. So, it's a good relationship and one that I encourage for my clients.

Before you start recording videos with your web cam or your digital camera, please stop! Yes, YouTube is a wonderful place for amateur videos of dogs and babies, but that is not how you want your business to be represented. On the other hand, a video on YouTube isn't the same thing as the old boring promotional videos of yesterday. Good production values are nice, but a long introduction isn't the way to go. YouTube isn't a movie theater, or a business meeting room and people don't need time to settle down. On YouTube, if your video doesn't start giving good information in the first few seconds, people will click away.

If you want to know how to do it right, take a look at my client motivational speaker Joel Weldon. This is how you do it.
