One of the great things about marketing via YouTube is that you can get a big potential bang for a very small investment. In fact, most YouTube videos are self-produced. What do you need to know to set up a YouTube video shoot? What equipment do you need, and how do you go about planning your shots?

This short webcast provides detailed recommendations for planning and setting up a YouTube video shoot. YouTube for Business author Michael Miller shows you how to prepare a script and storyboard, what equipment to purchase, and how to set up your shots. You'll even learn what accessories are necessary to keep your professional video from looking like an amateur production. It's everything you need to get started on YouTube.
