This video is a great introduction to using social media to promote your blog.
For the world cup. An augmented reality application from Pringles. You can make Peter do his famous robot dance. Its a nice use of the augmented reality technology.
Here is a video that shows what augmented reality could bring to video games and actual life interaction.
An article on imediaconnect about how to improve your seo on youtube. The article points out that youtube is now the second biggest search engine in use after google.
Being a video sharing website, there are some other things to consider different than thinking about a website or even a corporate video. For instance, Drew (the author) says:
“For example, if you sell construction equipment, you could produce videos of stunt drivers doing freestyle tricks in a Bobcat. Or perhaps a clothing company could create video fashion shows of embarrassing styles that were once popular. You don’t have to create traditional TV commercials to get people talking about your brand.”
When optimizing your youtube upload it is not the video itself but the text for the video that matters. Youtube builds the metatags for the page based on:
Name on video -> becomes title tag
Description (more info) -> becomes description tag
Youtube tags -> become keywords tag
Drew mentions CocaCola as a good example of video optimization http://www.youtube.com/user/cocacola

Below is a video of Galcos Soda Pop Stop in LA, it is a great example specialising in a product and believing in your product can be a great business.
Also this guy is so into his cola’s, its fasinating to watch and to watch tell you about all the products. They have over 500 kinds of soda product. Sometimes having a limit product range but knowing all about it can be better than trying to know a little about a lot.
I watched this video called the “100 Famous Rock Guitar Riffs”, the video was made by a guitar teacher and session musician. Not only is it a good watch and as a guitarist I know that trying to remember all that in one take is well hard, but it has had over 340,000 views of the video. Wow! that is a load more than just having a website or even placing an ad somewhere. The youtube page links to his website so people can see about him.
If you have a service or product that you do, it may be something to think about, doing something that is fun but will attract alot of attention. Start thinking about how to promote your service using social video.
