  • 20. The video is hosted, now what? Embed it on your site * You want traffic coming to your site, not to YouTube, etc. * Gives you the ability to provide context around the video Add share buttons to your site * Make it as easy as possible for your audience to share it * Some sites that provide share buttons for free: ShareThis Tweetmeme
  • 21. Now that you’ve enabled users to share... It’s your turn * Now’s the time to leverage the network you’ve built * Share anyway you like, but don’t neglect the two big players
  • 22. Why should you track video statistics? * Very difficult to see areas for improvement without measuring your baseline * Find out what works so you can run smarter campaigns * Discover trends. Who’s viewing/sharing? Maybe you have potential customers you didn’t think about. How to track (two easy ways) * Install Google Analytics on your website - you may miss full view of where the video is being shared * Use the analytics provided by your video host (YouTube’s Insight is one example)
  • 23. Example: YouTube Insight * see how views are spiking over time * viewer demographic information * viewer geographic information * compare the popularity of your videos
