Video marketing is perhaps the greatest opportunity that the web offers the average small business website. By producing short promotional videos and commercials and distributing them throughout the web, you can get quality links to your site from powerful websites. There are several free video hosting sites you can take advantage of right not if you don't want to host your own.
If you are still just considering video marketing, keep this in mind. First of all, it's relatively easy and inexpensive to make a video and it is a proven form of presenting yourself, your services and products to make you stick out above the competition.
There are also emerging video hosting sites for small business that are free. Of course, Youtube may still be the 800-pound gorilla of video sharing sites, but there an impressive number of rivals that are offering unique twists. So you don't want to leave YouTube out when uploading video. But don't miss an opportunity to expose your videos to the non-YouTube crowd. In fact, your videos can gain higher visibility on smaller video sharing sites because the overall content is less and videos with the right descriptions and tags have a better chance of getting listed in the top search results.
