“Technically it is a matter of opinion, but if you are using YouTube to market your business, you should NOT think of it as a social network.”

If you are a business owner using YouTube to reach customers and clients, this episode will help you understand how to approach YouTube to maximize your results and revenue.

There is lots of debate over whether YouTube is a social network or not, but no matter what we call it, you shouldn’t think of it as a social network.

If you are using YouTube to market your business, you should think about it as a search engine, just like a blog or Pinterest (yup, that one too!).

Anyone who keeps using YouTube the same way they use Facebook or Instagram is going to waste a lot of valuable time not getting great results.
