Video Marketing Tips: Share and Share Some More

By

Here are some other clever ways to get additional views of your videos: Share them on your social networking profiles – Every social networking site now makes it easy for you to share videos with your friends. Facebook lets you upload videos directly from your computer to your Wall for everyone to see. You can tag your friends by typing their names in the ‘tag your friends’ feature, so they will get a notification to watch the video. You can also just copy and paste the URL to your Youtube video right into the status update of your Wall and it will play on the Wall.

Copy and pasting a video URL in a Twitter tweet will make it play on the new sidebar area of your profile. People can watch the video right on Twitter without leaving to go to Youtube, but it still counts as a view. No matter what social network is your favorite: MySpace, Orkut, Flickr, Bebo, Squidoo or Ning, they all have the ability to share videos with your friends.

Blogging – No matter what blogging platform you use: Blogger, WordPress, TypePad or a self hosted blog on your website, there a number of ways to share your videos on your blogs. Putting them in the posts instead of writing text all of the time livens up your blog and gives it a different dynamic over text alone. You can simply use the embed code that every Youtube video provides and paste it into the HTML tab of your post, then hit ‘publish.’ That’s
it.

To find the embed code, click the ‘share’ button just underneath of any video and then click on ’embed.’ Copy and paste the code into your blog posts, sidebar widgets on WordPress and on any web page. (Use the Facebook and Twitter icons above the code to recommend the video to your friends too!)

Sharing videos is only one way to get a ton of views. What else do you need to know?

Be Sociable, Share!
