New tool for marketing with you YouTube videos

by thefullnoise

Do you use video in your online marketing? Youtube is the second largest most searched site on the internet (after Google.com), so in my opinion everyone should be using video in their marketing.YouTube just passed 1 billion channel subscriptions! And to celebrate they’re releasing a new widget – from the YouTube blog: 

So what’s next for subscriptions? Turns out, we’ve got a spankin’ new widget that any video-maker can embed on his/her website or blog. It lets people subscribe to your YouTube channel with a single click, without having to leave your site to log into YouTube or to confirm their subscription. The entire process happens in the widget.

Adding the widget is as simple as adding a couple of lines of code to your site:

*iframe id=”fr” src=”http://www.youtube.com/subscribe_widget?p=%5BaddYouTube Username here%5D&#8221; style=”overflow: hidden; height: 105px; width: 300px; border: 0;” scrolling=”no” frameBorder=”0″></iframe*>      remove asteriks

Remember to change the [add YouTube Username here] to your username without the brackets (thanks Steve Garfield).

This is a great way to encourage subscribers to your video content wherever they watch it on the web.

Check out the YouTube blog for the full announcement.
