Making the Most of YouTube – David Perry

David-Perry-white-bg“We all know the statistics about how YouTube is the world’s most-used video hosting platform and the second most-popular search tool after Google itself. But as new features are constantly added, YouTube has evolved way beyond its initial role as purely a way to share video clips into a powerful marketing and social media tool. This session reviews some ways to get the maximum value from video content that you (or your clients) share online, as well as looking at how everyone can now use YouTube to broadcast live.”
