    It definitely generates more traffic! In fact 33% of online users will watch a video until the end (that's 333 leads out of 1000), it is also proven that video is a lot more affordable then and other online marketing method!

    Great tips. As always it all depends on traffic. Most youtube visitors go there to have fun, so I think fun/entertainment videos are more likely to generate huge traffic as opposed to something serious.

    Optimising your video is very important. Use a descriptive title - keyword research, take advantage of the description of the videos use your keywords there too, use as many relevant tags as you can and another very important thing is to produce transcript for your video!

    You could buy youtube views but I can be risky. If youtube catches you, they might freeze your views until organic views have caught up

    I think by using videos as a marketing tool is a good idea of generating ton of traffic to your website or the services you are promoting. Videos have a stronger impact on people than images on a page. Videos can put across your messages to your audience more efficiently than images do. Said this, I would advice anybody to start tapping into this great traffic technique that has proven to work tremendously for those who have used it.

    Great, I use YouTube for my dating sites promotion. I can say its a great place to advertise your sites. I get more than 15000 unique visits from You Tube every month and more than 3000 of them become members on my sites; that alone make me thousands of pounds every month.

    Oh yay, another thread with a question title where the OP answers the question.

    This...This is how you foster conversations...Indeed...


    Video marketing is the future. Animation marketing too. If people knew how to market Gifs correctly, they'd explode. Gifs are just silent videos, after all.
