With 60 million viewers watching more than 100 million videos each month, YouTube is a true Internet phenomenon. But YouTube isn't just for home-made video blogs and funny animal videos—it has the potential to be a high-impact and surprisingly affordable marketing vehicle for any business, small or large. Any business that can reach even a small subset of YouTube's 60 million monthly viewers has a significant advantage over its competitors.
To create an effective YouTube video, you have to determine what types of videos to produce, and how to integrate those videos with the rest of your marketing mix. It's not as easy as putting an existing commercial online; YouTube success requires a knowledge of the YouTube community and a unique online marketing savvy.
In this first of two seminars based on his best-selling book, YouTube for Business, author Michael Miller shows how to incorporate YouTube as part of your online marketing strategy. You'll learn how you can use YouTube to market your company, brand, products, and services online; what types of videos you should create; and how to promote and make money from your YouTube videos.
This session presents the essential strategies necessary for YouTube business success. For technical advice on how to produce, upload, and manage your YouTube videos, be sure to watch the second YouTube seminar, Creating Effective YouTube Business Videos.
