YouTube 1st - 7 years later and .....

9 replies
I found this still of the first uploaded video on YouTube back in 2005. In the 7 and a half years since then, this site has become a marketer's dream and if you are not using YouTube to further your IM concerns then you are really missing out on alot!

Now the second biggest search engine worldwide, YT is a traffic superpower! Have a look at this stat 'More content is uploaded to the site within 60 days than three major U.S. television networks created in 60 years.' Wow!!

It really is a marketer's gold mine when used well - want more stats? Read this: 30 Mind Numbing YouTube Facts,Figures and Statistics - Infographic | Jeffbullas's Blog

    I know some people who rely on Youtube alone to bring them the bulk of their traffic. Without it, they would have to actually do some marketing online.

      Some very experienced marketers feel Youtube is actual marketing.

      Plus, Youtube and video creation allows many marketers to tap their creative nature in many ways.

    I have been planning to use Youtube as part of my marketing. I already have the plan and strategy but don't have a time to implement it. I hope this coming weeks I'll be able to implement it.
