Youtube Tips *Tutorial*

*Guest Post*
I started using Youtube to host my vlogs and video tutorials in 2009. Youtube is an invaluable marketing platform that can propel your business into marketing bliss. I think it's safe to say that video blogging and the era of DIY video tutorials is upon us and like the age old saying "if you can't beat them, join them!" If you want to keep up with your competitors and stay ahead of the game it's time to sign up for one more social network. Airing your videos on your own YouTube channel is a creative way to market and interact with your customers and readers and it's so easy for people to find and follow your channel. Youtube even makes it easy to customize your channel to fit your brand, making you look professional and streamlined. If you're still not convinced that YouTube is for you, let's look at some basic statistics. - In 2010 YouTube exceeded 2 billion hits a day. - The average person spends 15 minutes a day on YouTube. - YouTube is monetizing over a billion video views per week globally. - Hundreds of millions of videos are watched every month on mobile devices. - over 3 million people are connected to and auto-sharing YouTube Videos to at least one social network. - 46.2 years worth of YouTube videos are watched a day on Facebook alone. (Statistics found on website-monitoring.com) There are so many great ways you can utilize YouTube to interact with your customers and expand your business. My top 3 would be: 1. Let your viewers get to know the real you by uploading videos of yourself live. You can do weekly vlogs, host interviews with special guests, and talk about your business and why you love it. 2. Take advantage of your creativity and showcase it in video tutorials and DIY projects to get your viewers interacting with your business. 3. Give your customers one more reason to buy your products by offering detailed videos of your products up close to exhibit how fabulous they truly are. Those are just a few of the many ways you can use Youtube to further develop your business! In short that's a whole lot of people spending a whole lot of time making a whole lot of money and networking to even more people through other social media. Not such a bad trend to follow after al,l I'd say. Some more fun facts about youtube: - 24 hours of video are uploaded every minute. - More video is uploaded to YouTube in 60 days than all 3 major US networks created in 60 years. - Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance" is the most popular video on YouTube with over 185.39 million views.
 
Becki is the owner and founder of Whippy Cake. She wears stripes with polka dots and white after Labor Day.  Her fun-sized counterparts are her inspiration and muse, the King (Kingston) and Lo Lo (London).  She’s short on time and long on love, so she needs her fashion to work for her. This idea gave birth to Whippy Cake, a brand encompassing more than just salivation inducing accessories. Whippy Cake is made to work for you. Vamp it up for date night, class it up for church the next morning, and simplify it for late night pajama clad ice cream runs every other night. Indulge.
