YouTube Rocks for Advertising Your Business: Any Questions?

If you're looking for cheap, effective advertising (and who isn't these days?), don't miss out on YouTube. Online video advertising has all of the upside of TV advertising and none of the downside. You still have to produce a video, but you don't have to buy time to show it. And if your video is really good, it could even 'go viral' with people all over the world linking to it, watching it and learning about you and your business.

For instance, Tim Sjobeck of Rosenthal Plumbing sent me a link to their YouTube video Any Questions? - a real winner, I think. It's really entertaining but it also does a great job of getting the message across; you won't be able to watch it without knowing that Rosenthal Plumbing provides great customer service!

(See how it works? I'm inadvertently promoting Tim's business and I don't even know him. No wonder advertising your business on YouTube is on my 22 Cheap Advertising Ideas list.)
