#3 – YouTube Made Easy – Steps to Video Branding

Tuesday, May 17, 2016 from 10am-noon at the Red Willow Learning Center

Why YouTube? Video grabs attention like nothing else and is the next best thing to talking to your prospect one to one. We all have different learning styles and absorb information in different ways and video works with multiple senses. Using video immediately sets you apart from the competition and elevates you to expert status.

What does all this mean for your business or non-profit? It means video is the new social media trend, and any business that refuses to believe that is taking a huge risk of being forgotten.

You will learn:

  • How to create a video that sells.
  • Ways to use YouTube to drive traffic to your website.
  • How to determine the right length of video.
  • How to upload your video to YouTube and Facebook.
  • Setting up your YouTube account right the first time.
