Youtube is now the #2 search engine on the internet. Youtube is the third ranking site in the entire world and has an hour of video uploaded to it each second. It gets 4 Billion video views per day and that number goes up constantly.
So it’s not hard to believe that one of the best ways to promote any product is on Youtube, and it stands indisputably as the best free way to advertise your offer.
Here is a quick look at 17 reasons you should be doing video marketing:
Making videos is not difficult. Initially it may seem intimidating to the first-timer. They think of getting in from of the camera and performing. But, while you can make a video by standing in front of a camera, or sitting at your computer facing the webcam, that is not the way most videos are made. Most videos don’t involve you being on-camera at all.
Only Two Tools
The primary tools needed for a good. Quality video number only two or three. The first is a PowerPoint program. If you have Microsoft Office on your computer, then you have PowerPoint already installed. It’s not hard to learn how to use it. If you do not have PowerPoint, there are at least two alternatives.
The other tool you will need is a screen capture program. Camtasia is a premium capture program, but it is also costly. ScreenCast-O-Matic has a free version, but even the Pro Version is only $15 per year. CamStudio is free and works great, but is slightly more difficult to set up.

Monetize Your Masterpiece
Then, of course, when you upload your video, always put your link in the description box to give people a chance to learn more about what you are offering and visit your capture page and your landing page.
You can also set up Google Adsense to allow them to place ads on your videos and pay you each time someone clicks on the ad. If ou end up with a video that gets thousands of views, this can be significant income.
