Since all the original videos of the Autumn Marathon are uploaded to YouTube, I consider it my duty to acquaint you with this site (if you are not familiar with it, which, of course, is unlikely).
First of all I should note the importance of this resource as an excellent marketing tool. Today, when Internet prices are falling, and the connection speed is increasing, video content is becoming increasingly popular. Network users, including Internet entrepreneurs, are increasingly using this type of communication to promote their ideas, products and services.
How effective it is, judge for yourself. I'll tell you the story of the success of the Australian garage gang Sick Puppies, about which until September 2006, no one heard anything. One afternoon, the guys were wandering through the streets of Sydney and saw a guy who was standing in front of a supermarket with a carton where it was written “Free Hugs”, i.e. “free hugs” or “hugs”. And they decided to make a video clip with this enthusiast and post it on YouTube.
What did this venture mean? Hugs turned into a powerful movement that swept the whole world, and Sick Puppies quickly gained popularity, participated in US talk show hosts and signed a contract with Virgin Records. less than a year!
This is what YouTube allows you to do. If you have good quality th content and you can make a video of it, success is guaranteed! Yes, here's a link to the video. Take a look, you will not regret it.
So, let's move on to YouTube itself.
