Do you have a brilliant idea but no customers; well I did so I came up with the method of the "Circle of free advertising" what it takes to start is a good website with a catchy domain name please make sure your not cheap with the bandwidth of your site because that can have severe repercussions as this process unfolds. The key components of this process are the larger companies you will use to create and launch your circle: YouTube, iTunes, these two companies will lead you to total success if used correctly
to start off after your website is in full working order and pleasing to the eyes ( I would recommend using a flash into opening) any way you create 3 YouTube commercials include a link to your web site in all of them but remember you have to be able to catch the viewers attention in the first 5 seconds of watching or else the commercial is doomed. Be creative with the title of your commercial what I learned was the YouTube videos with the most views was music videos and any thing pertaining to the elections these type videos pulled in 400,000 - 2.5 million in views so incorporating your product or service within a general theme of ether would drastically change your site or business traffic. I found that with a little investigative work you can even identify your target market- by understanding what kind of demographic your trying to reach you can easily identify that sector or group by the type of video you post Example 1: You have a site dedicated to selling enhanced car parts such as spoilers or any thing automotive -you would post your video title under fast cars or custom cars, shore to reach the car enthusiast that surf the net. Example 2: You have a site dedicated to selling T-shirts about the election you would name the video after the candidates or something controversial even include a snippet from a latest debate ( Please be advised I don't advocate Plagiarism or theft of intellectual property, however most videos posted on YouTube utilize actual video from real events- most posted videos even site the origin to safe guard them selves) another good tip people pay thousands to get a good spot on the google search engine but what people forget is that YouTube is Owned by google so if you post a video in Youtube and type the title or topic in google it will also bring up your video.
After you create your commercial you want to capture another dedicated audience and what group of people is more dedicated then Pod cast listeners millions of people own iPods also millions more have iTunes installed on their PC. A plus factor for you is that there are audio and video pod cast shows and posting one is FREE for you and free for the listeners. Ok if you render a service instead of an actual product do an interview with a past satisfied customer identifying the need of your service but please be brief nothing drawn out and boring a good tip would be to talk about something controversial same idea as the YouTube commercial to first capture the viewers or do something over the top add a comedian any thing you can do to gain a persons attention enough to say hey I should check this site out it's millions of marketing strategies out there you just have to find the one that fits your company but remember everything should point to your web site this is going to drive the traffic to you.
Also don't forget to add your URL , to your Business card as well YouTube also allows you to embed the commercial AKA video to your website if you know how to use HTML. Any questions just ask me post me a reply and I will gladly help any in need.
