Create a Video & Upload it to Youtube
Vast Audiences for your Video
The success of any business depends upon its visibility and YouTube gives you that very much required exposure with little or no efforts at all. It is just the matter of selection of uploading your video at right place, under right category. So it is very easy and more likely to reach masses when you use YouTube for your videos, and hence chances of a clever video to grab viewer’s attention and go viral, is quite high on YouTube, when compared to self-hosted videos (websites). Anybody can embed YouTube videos on their websites, blogs etc. and if good, your video will also be approachable from outside of YouTube. In case you want your video to be viewed by selected number of people (limit 50) you can do that by making it private.
Save Dollars with Free Video Hosting
If you are planning to host your videos on your own video hosting server or thinking about getting licence from a video platform then you have to take in account, this extra burden of dollars on your wallet. Though Google don’t promote commercial video sharing but has now made an amendment in the terms and conditions for sharing original contents of brands .

Hence, if you compare the current cost for licences of video platform YouTube brand channel is a smart bet.
The ease to use it
Though we all get motivated enough to cross all hurdles and do hard work, when we decide to do some serious business but why to choose a harder path when similar results can be achieved with an easy and fair option. This is the reason why YouTube is a favourite option. All you need is to follow some very basic and simple steps to upload your video(s). Create an account, sign-in, upload and before you blink you are on YouTube. You can easily upload a video via a flip video camera or your smartphone within minutes. In fact if user is interested in just watching a video no registration is required. Yes! It is as simple as that.
Large Bandwidth and sustainability
YouTube is a dedicated website from the well-established giant Google, and it has its own dedicated servers to handle hell load of traffic (hundreds of thousands or millions of visitors over a short period of time). Consider the case when your video goes viral and you start getting whooping number of hits, then will arise the need of substantial amount of bandwidth to handle such a heavy traffic. So if you are not using YouTube, you are in trouble, and unfortunately instead of being happy you would be in a panic situation due to the potential low bandwidth of your website. Of course, it is wise to use YouTube when the whole world is interested in your video(s).
Number, length, size of Videos
Today YouTube if the world’s dominant resource and repository for videos and luckily there is no limit on the number of videos you can upload, which is not possible if you are using some other licenced video platform. You may say 15 minutes which is the current allowed length of a video is less for your content. Is it really? Anything effective can be presented even in lesser time but if you think otherwise then all you need to do is to break your content in different videos logically and upload them in parts instead of a single video. Is it not cool? For video, 2GB size is good amount and it is the current size you can upload on YouTube. Basically a standard sized video will easily fit on YouTube.
