Crushing It with YouTube
Crushing It with YouTube – Part II – Using YouTube This section will provide you with quick start information about using YouTube to your advantage.
From registration to uploading videos and more, you will find all the answers to your most pressing questions right here in this simple and easy-to-use section.
You are welcome to view video clips freely at YouTube.com. But, if you want to become an active member of the community, you will first have to join. You can do this easily. If you use the Web even minimally, registering with YouTube.com will prove a snap.
First, you will have to log onto the main YouTube.com sign-up page.
Here you will see a screen as follows:
Registration is simple, just enter your user’s name, set up a password, provide your e-mail address, and provide some personal details needed by the site.
These include your phone number, the country you live in, your gender, date of birth and a confirmation number provided by YouTube.
YouTube values their customers’ privacy. While they may not share your personal information intrinsically, you should know that any content you upload to the site will be available to the public at large. YouTube may use information such as your name and e-mail address if you choose to engage in activities offered by the site (like uploading your video clips).
YouTube often sends cookies out to users’ computers, so visitors returning to the site can log in easier. You can always delete cookies on your computer, this has never been an issue for most people.
The company will not send you marketing material or other advertisements without your consent, though they might send your e-mail address for administrative purposes, but does not share your personal information with “third-party” companies. This means usually most of your information is protected.
Remember, here are the benefits of registering:
You get to watch millions of videos presented by people throughout the world.
You can set up your section so you can share home videos with family members and friends that may live far away.
You can connect with people around the world that share common interests, likes and dislikes.
You can have fun.
You can upload and promote your videos to a global audience, a huge benefit for any entrepreneur, marketer or small business owner.
Note, when you register YouTube will send you a confirmation note to confirm your e-mail address is legitimate and that you own it. Do not forget to confirm your email address or you will not be able to use the full functionality of the site.
Getting Your Video Featured
Now that you are registered, it’s time to start making movies. One of the first questions people have been asking about getting their videos featured. Everyone wants their turn in the spotlight. The real key to getting your videos featured is nothing more than creativity and good luck.
Visitors on YouTube rank the videos they like. So, like any review system, if people like what it is you have to show, they will rate your videos better, and your videos are more likely to be featured. YouTube.com provides a featured section for popular videos.
Some people are generous enough to offer feedback and improve any site they use, including YouTube. If this sounds like you, visit: http://www.youtube.com/testtube
Here officials of the site try their newest features and ask users to provide them with feedback so they can make their products and services more appealing. You will get the opportunity to “test-drive” new features or programs before YouTube launches them.
Make Your Video “Watch Worthy”
Apart from making a great video, there are many ways you can express yourself and get noticed on YouTube. Unfortunately, YouTube doesn’t let registered members upload personal avatars of themselves, small pictures of their liking.
You can, however, create a brand simply by using your video cam. You can provide an intro clip, a short bio of yourself if you like. Otherwise, use your full creativity to help your brand name, your products or your services. You can even brand your message if you place enough time and energy into creating your videos!
Making Your First Video
Since YouTube is a relatively new concept, there are still many people that are not certain “how” to go about making a great video. First, you will need the proper supplies. You can make a video using something as simple as a digital camera, your cell phone (provided it is one that takes video pictures) or a traditional camcorder.
What you do is simply record a short, 10-minute clip of your video. Then, download the video to your computer just as you would any digital pictures you would take. YouTube then allows you to upload your videos.
If you want to shine, you can edit your videos before uploading them. There are many software programs readily available that allow you to edit videos relatively easily, even if you are a beginner. Some examples include Windows Moviemaker.
Software applications are a big hit, in part because you can add subtitles to your video, you can incorporate special effects, and you can zoom in and out and take advantage of many other features. Since optimizing your video is essential if you want to attract attention on YouTube, let’s find out how to do that.
The next section will help you learn how to create and maximize your videos’ potential so they captivate your audience.
Your name and email will Never be shared, sold, or given to anyone.
