    Why wouldn't it? I use it to drive traffic to my sites which are built around affiliate offers. It's also great for branding. You'll need to make sure you use your videos to create a direct path to your offer. If you just plug an affiliate link directly you might get your account banned.

    Well, first you would promote the product. My God, I am just in shock with the literacy of people on this forum. You promote a product in the video, that's how.

    Yes, traffic from youtube has about a 30% lower bounce rate then traffic from google. Go to youtube and find the channel of tigerdirect - which is a computer outlet website. They do reviews of products, and provide a link in the video description.

    Youtube is an excellent way to promote products and drive targeted traffic to your site.

    The number of video views a day on YouTube has surpassed one billion! So it is more than attractive to drive a traffic to your site. :)

    youtube works very well, I have also seen that dailymotion is also very good for SEO/marketing in general.

    Yes, it absolutely works, and you will be glad you used it, FYI, although you get 5 minutes, it is best to stay around 2 min30sec to 3 min.

    I'm experiencing some really great results with Youtube.
    Funny,entertaining and how-to type of videos, under 3 min length convert the best.
    Boosting number of comments and rating helps rank higher on Youtube and get more views.
    Conversation between your other Youtube accounts, help of friends, promoting on other social networks or even buying views and annotations can help you achieve it faster :D

    Of course, video marketing (using YouTube and other platforms) is quite lucrative.

    Youtube is great to send direct traffic to affiliate offers which don't require any upfront money to join...
