Using YouTube to market your glass
« on: September 24, 2012, 03:50:20 PM »
Hi Guys,

We have just made a YouTube video for less than £10  by using free licence music and photo stills and then getting it edited on Fiverr

By using a keyword in the title of the video this will really help you get extra coverage for your glass sales or Etsy shop.
Here is our under a tenner film about Art Glass

Pretty good for the money! Please let me know what you think.
regards

I'm probably not representitive of contemporary folk, but I really do my utmost to avoid youtube.
I hate the grainy tiny images, the adverts, the inane comments, the whole thing really. I only use it for music in the background while I do other things on the pc.
I don't ever bother to look at tubey links folk put places either.
Cheers, Sue (M)

Interesting, but I would have prefered to see whole glass items too, and not just bits, bobs and signatures. :)

Nice pictures of glass close up, but I don't see how this is a marketing video. How would anyone know what you have for sale, how much for and how to buy? Am I missing something? (It IS a bit early in the day for me!)  ???

Shows how much I know - I thought the link was to how to make a film.  :-[
I've seen it now.
I didn't have the sound on. (I've got the radio on loudly in another room)

It's an artistic and well-put-together stream of pretty.
It's lovely to look at, I'd enjoy it with nice music in the background as something to relax and watch, like fish in an aquarium, but I can't see how you'd use it to sell.  ???
I can't see one single whole piece of glass, I don't know how the images join up into being different ones or the same pieces from a different angle. And because I'm looking at it as something to just enjoy, I got annoyed by names and labels appearing.


I'm afraid I don't think it is achieving what you want it to, but I do think you made a beautiful film.
Cheers, Sue (M)
