YouTube Makes Social Media Marketing Easier

Automatically share clips on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Reader

Social media marketing can be fun – after all, you’re operating in the land of piano-playing cats, oversharing celebrities, and all other sorts of neat stuff.  At the same time, it can be a nuisance – between Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and MySpace, plus also-rans like Bebo, there are any number of sites to cover.  YouTube wants to help.

A post on the YouTube Blog explains, "As we learned in kindergarten, sharing is good.  We want you to be able to do more of it with your videos.  With a simple one-time log-in on our upload page, you can now have your YouTube account automatically update your Facebook friends, Twitter followers, and Google Reader shared items when you upload a video."

This should ensure that marketing messages reach the largest possible audience.  Or, if you’ve already been diligent about linking to your YouTube videos in every possible place, the new option should save you all sorts of time.

No real commitment of any sort’s required.  The post states, "If you change your mind, you can shut it off at any time.  And of course, for those videos that you’d rather not share, mark them as private and they won’t be sent to any other site."

One last side note . . . this development may remind Conan O’Brien fans of a certain "Year 3000" line: "YouTube, Twitter and Facebook will merge to form one super time-wasting website called YouTwitFace."

  1. Youtube have got it right. They display ads on the bottom of the video and sometimes a short ad before the film plays.

  2. Great post! I?m just starting out in community management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well – resources like this article are incredibly helpful. As our company is based in the US, it?s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in that case.

  3. Youtube is far and away the best way to make social media work for you.

  7. Ha.. The most important tip on here, Mark your "private" Vids as private. I learnt that mistake the hard way. Do a search on utube for pigville disgusting hairy man. Its funny but didnt really suite my business image.  lol It was a client that pointed out the offending video, thankfully she saw the funny side.

  8. I agree with you. Youtube is one of very effective online media marketing, as many local singers in my country upload their promo singles, as many bloggers hire more visitors to their websites, and so on
