I hope you followed my recommendations yesterday and viewed videos from other companies in your industry. Today we are going to create your YouTube account AND in just 5 minutes, I am going to create a video, upload it to YouTube and embed it in this webpage. I will show you how to do that also.
1. Create a YouTube Account
- Go to www.YouTube.com and click on “Sign-Up” in the upper right hand corner.
- Complete the sign up form.
- Once you press “Create My Account,” you will need to approve the email that is sent. If you do not receive an email from YouTube within 5 minutes, please check your spam filters for the email.
2. Shoot your Video.
I recommend using a Flip Video Camera. They are small, easy to transport, and they can upload directly to YouTube. Go read the reviews on Flip Cameras and decide for yourself. Don’t take my word for it – this is all about social media. You can see all kinds of reviews and even buy your camera online. But before you do that, watch the video below to see my explanation of the Flip Video Camera. Then go buy your own for around $120! (want more information and product reviews?)
3. Upload your video to YouTube.
We covered a lot today.
Your action item for today is to get your YouTube account setup. If you want more information on creating videos, I will be offering a full day workshop on shooting video, editing video, and preparing it for the Internet. If you want more information, please contact me today. Classes are filling up!
Did you enjoy this session? If so, leave a comment below with your YouTube video link. I would love to see what you are up to on YouTube!
