OK you have posted a video on YoTube and placed a link to your site in the description. Other than using PPC or PPV to promote it how do you drive traffic to it?

    Twitter is always a good way. You might have to shrink the YouTube URL down to keep the character count low, though. Try a service like Tinyurl for this.

    Other videos. Viral techniques. Cross link it with other videos from your account. Choose wise titles, keywords and descriptions...

    How do you do that?I don't see post a video response on the videos I want to do that with?
    OK I found it you click inside the comment box when you're signed in and it appears. But the original video poster must approve it. Is that new or was it always that way?

    Some video posters change the settings, so that they must approve it.

    But some people allow video responses to be added right away.

    For driving traffic, make sure that your keyword is in the title, description and the tags.

    If the video has someone speeking, you should add subtitles to your video, as search engines can read those. ( If you do not know how to add subtitles, just YouTube it )

    Try to be active in the niche you are in, comment on other peoples videos and profiles. Do not spam, that wont get you anywhere.

    Ask people if you can help them out in anyway, in exchange for a place in their 'box'. ( The 'box' is the place on the channel where users, can list other users )
    This will give your channel a lot more exposure and then they will watch your videos.

    Promoting it with Social Bookmarks and YouLikeHits are great ways to bring in some visitors and start of getting some conversions.

    I also like to have it optimized for a keyword that gets good traffic so it will be ranked will in the search engines. YouTube vids do very well with SEO!
