The modern world is one dominated by computers, by internet, with advertising coming from banners and links, to text hidden in other people sites, and many more confusing and complicated processes. What it all boils down to however, is lead generation, traffic coming to your business.
To succeed in business, the idea is quite simple, have a good product and sell more of it than your competitors. In order to achieve this to the maximum effect, you need to have knowledge of the popular websites that are getting the most hits each day and find a way to link yourself to that site.
For many sites this is hard work and must be specifically written into the website itself, however, there are many sites that are simply networking sites or free to join sites where people can post their thoughts in forums or as videos. You Tube is an example of the latter. A free to join site where anyone can create and upload videos of any length and post them on other websites ranging from episodes of TV shows to home made adverts for small time local businesses.
Opening an account on You Tube instantly gives you access to millions of videos, and while many will be irrelevant to your cause, there will be some that must be seen. The site can be used as a research tool, searching for existing videos relating to your product, as well as an advertising medium. A company does not have to have a You Tube account to be a success, but for a site that is free to join how can it hurt?
The visual medium is arguably the number one sector within the advertising industry, just look at the prices paid during half time at the Super bowl every year. Millions of dollars for mere seconds of airtime simply because of the large audience which is essentially trapped and has to watch. Imagine having the chance to bring your own business, whatever its size or objective, from profit or simply a bit of fun to an audience greater than that of the Super bowl across the globe 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Youtube is exactly that and posting a video is easy and can even be nothing but text should you wish. Even if you generate a few leads from it, it’s worth your time since there is costs involved.
The internet and the virtual world, despite its already overwhelming dominance is still in its infancy, the sky really is the limit for technology that can now be fitted into mobile phones when as little as twenty years ago an entire room was needed to house something much less powerful. With such uncharted abilities, getting in on the ground floor as it were and putting your business out there for the world to see is merely the first step. Having an account and not using it will still yield a search result somewhere and ensure you have a base with which you can begin should you decide to use it later.
