Can Web Videos Drive Sales? You Decide.


I have been posting video programming on the web since long before You Tube was a gleam in Google’s eye. Why? Because I believe that moving pictures and sound represent the very best way to tell a story.

When You Tube came on the scene they changed the entire game by offering free hosting, removing the question of what file format to post or what download speed to optimize for, and offering the ability for anyone to embed a video on their site without either having to produce it, post it or host it.

If you never had to deal with any of those issues in the pre-You Tube era you don’t understand what a revolution and a revelation You Tube was. Today, from a small business marketing standpoint, the wonder of You Tube is how many people watch it.

The video below describes how one inventor has used You Tube to sell over one million units of his tongue brush. That’s right; tongue brush.

If You Tube can help him sell a million tongue brushes, what might it do for you? Give me a call. I have some ideas for you.
