You Know You Want To

I know you secretly want to post a video onto a website to get some of that cool viral vibe going, but you lack that great footage of your buddy taking a face plant after flipping his bike. Or maybe you are hoping you can finally get some eyeballs with your lip-synched version of Night Ranger's "Sister Christian". Yup, sites like YouTube have made cult heroes of some rather dubiously talented individuals, but it is also one of the fastest growing sites on the net; without exaggeration, it has become the most popular online video-sharing company, period. Knowing when to keep a good thing going, YouTube is now offering online video advertising. Now you don't need to worry about your friends and family finding out that you are an overly excited Star Wars fan... instead, post your commercials, make content that triggers YouTube viewers to watch and share your video. Think about your advertising message getting traction with a huge web audience and then being passed around to an endless potential customer list.

Be smart about what you upload... Speedos don't look good on anybody. But great offers, great messages and great video... that looks good!

Tube (no relation) is the first place to start. Let's talk your message and your goals and we'll get you there.

Nifty!

This may not be serious or life-changing (except, possibly, for Rich), but it's a great example of an effective video tutorial. It's simple and concise, using one shot and one angle, and it's easy to follow.

Clever and useful. Cheers.
