If you are looking to tackle a few projects on your marketing to-do list, participating in a video sharing site may help you with two scheduled items: social media and search engine optimization (SEO).
Although a comScore qSearch report revealed that 9 billion searches on Google were entered in August 2009 alone, YouTube had Google beat with 10 billion video views that same month. Video sharing has become a recognized interactive form of social media. With online video viewing increasing at a high rate, your buyers potentially could learn more about your product lines and company profile in a new and exciting way.
YouTube has become one of the most popular video sharing websites. Nonetheless, there are hundreds more like it, drawing visitors daily to make up the 62% of Internet users in the U.S. who have watched video on a video sharing site.
To distribute your video, you can access one of the hundreds of video sharing sites that allows you to create an account, gives you step-by-step instructions for uploading video.
