YouTube presents one of the greatest marketing tools to hit the Internet in years. Really. I’m not making it up. And what makes YouTube such a powerful marketing tool is that you can virtually have your own YouTube channel, sort of like your own TV channel – except, it’s free.
All you have to do is set up a YouTube account and start producing and uploading videos. OK, it’s a little more complicated than that. You have to create good, entertaining videos that people will want to watch. But if you can do that, then having your own YouTube channel can pay you big dividends.
So what are the benefits to having your own YouTube channel?
- No. 1, if you produce good videos that are entertaining and informative, then you can gain a following on YouTube. Some channels have thousands of viewers every day.
