Why This Book?

YouTube, a Web 2.0 platform for delivering video content, is one of the most prevalent, if not one of the world’s largest, video sites today. The current generation of Web 2.0 applications allows us to create interactive and personable content, in contrast to the pages and pages of text that was characteristic of the Web 1.0 environment.

The ideal social networking strategy for business in the Web 2.0 environment leverages applications as delivery vehicles to engage and influence an audience, and leaves a target audience wanting to explore more. Business executives and professionals need to push themselves to use YouTube and other video tools, so that they not only remain relevant, they extend their reach beyond the geographic realm of responsibility and accelerate their ability to get things done.

Social networking may not be the economic glue that holds a business together, but applications like YouTube allow you to engage and influence often without authority, unlike a corporation where communication is filtered through a hierarchical bureaucracy.

You know all about YouTube: 100s of million videos viewed each day, tens of millions of unique visitors, one of the top sites on the Internet and so on. Did you know that YouTube is just one of the other 48 video distribution websites?

How can you ignore this number of viewers as a potential market or a delivery medium of your products and services? Are you struggling to incorporate the viral effect of internet video in your marketing efforts?

The challenge, then, becomes how to engage and influence. This booklet / DVD shares the best practices in using video and distribution platforms like YouTube to empower your business.
