Hi guys, are there any designers out there using youtube or similar to market a site (on a small scale) ie offering users tips ect.
I have had mixed results... sometimes quite good, sometimes, they fall flat.
For some of my IT related sites, I have used Camtasia to make 'how-to' videos.
Make sure that you put a hyperlink to your site in your video description! Youtube is owned by Google, and thus Youtube links are valuable.
There are a bunch of other video sites where you can post your videos, if they are any good, they can generate some traffic.
Generating traffic is not just about finding one magic site which will send you zillions of hits, but rather a process of developing quality content for other sites that might send more traffic your way.
There are other sites where you can post articles, article directories, PR sites and much, much more.
