If possible, get other bloggers and people who are influential on social networks to share your videos.
To help garner even more views embed your video in your website. Most people when they think of video marketing think only of posting a video on YouTube. Instead, post it on your website and include a link on your Facebook wall and Tweet about your new video on Twitter.
Make sure that your videos are promoted in a two-fold fashion. Let your existing core audience know that new content is up, via your blog and email or newsletter list. However, also make sure to promote it to new readers through social media posts and search engine optimization techniques within your budget.

You don’t need to worry about editing out every little imperfection because people will see that you’re honest and that they can relate to you. Just focus on getting the message across in a clear and concise manner.
