Youtube 101Are you on YouTube?   Did you know it is one of the  most searched sites for information.  People use it for entertainment, finding out how-to do something, learning skills, educational knowledge, deciding on purchases, etc.

The Facts About YouTube

Consider these facts:

  • 3 billion plus videos are viewed a day.
  • 100 million people take a social action on YouTube (likes, shares, comments, etc.) every week.
  • Millions of subscriptions happen each day. Subscriptions allow you to connect with a person or company you are interested in
  • There are more than 500 tweets per minute containing a YouTube link.

If you and your business are not on YouTube, you might want to consider adding it to your list of social media accounts.  It is simple to use and does not require any special equipment.  If you have a smartphone and an account on YouTube, you should be good to get started.
