Why You Should Place Your Videos on YouTube or Facebook 1st?

 

This 2 minute drill provides a simple and quick tip for entrepreneurs and business owners to run their business better and more efficiently. Key thing to remember from this video is that YouTube and Facebook (become more so) are both places that people search for videos and as a small business owners (really any business owner) you want to increase your likelihood of being found. The best way to do this is to post your video natively on each of these sites and then into your website. I still believe YouTube is a better option because it’s more of a search engine but that could change.

Takeaway – Place your video on YouTube & Facebook 1st and then embed it on your website, blog, other social media site, etc.

PS – If you need an example, check it out above.

Every morning the Ant would wake up and hop on his computer before he want into the office. He check his email which sent Google Alerts directly to his e-mail containing information about his business, his name and even his competitors.
