My ten year old daughter and I recently uploaded a 90 second video to youtube. We have had over 6,000 views in a little over 30 days. The subject matter is what some would consider a niche market. Check it out for yourself if you like. You can see it at *** Youtube.com/Oldschoolchoppers ***

We have been Emailed by people all over the world telling how much they like our product (video). I have over 25 years journeymen level experience in this particular field.

My question to the Sowpub community is this . . . . What would you do with these potential customers? And how can some of us on this board use Youtube to promote our goods and services?

Thanks in advance.
Hi George,

Thanks for sharing your story!

I haven't done it myself, but it sure looks like YouTube can be a great list-building/traffic generation tool. (I think you can include a link to your website in the description too, can't you?)

If you're camera-shy, you can still use YouTube. You can hide behind a costume (check out all the "Ask a Ninja" videos - they're hilarious!), or you can just show "stuff" (cars, model trains, jewelry, etc.), or you can show powerpoint-type slides and/or animations...

Anyway, once you have a list of people interested in a particular thing, you can promote to that email list. Promote your own products, other people's products (via an affiliate link), and so on.

To keep people reading, give them value too... I think the ezine or emailed newsletter is still a good idea. It doesn't have to be in a "structured" form, it can take the form of a personal letter on a regular basis, telling people lots of cool stuff, combined with some promotional material to pay for your time.

Contrary to what some people may say, email lists are definitely not dead - but still alive and fiercely kicking!



P.S. Check out my own email list offering below!
