Why YouTube and Social Bookmarking are essential in Social Media – Guide Day 10
My 30 Day Simple Network Marketing Guide Day 10
1) YouTube – tell the world about your passion
YouTube is a very important and integral part of social media and watch your Key Words propel you up Google (who actually own YouTube). This is probably one of the most effective ways of increasing your ranking up the search engines and also a well developed YouTube site that is keyword rich can drive up a lot of traffic too.
It is vital to get yourself into the YouTube community, like any other social site, by following and subscribing to other sites, as well as collecting your own “favourite” videos. Remember that there are always people searching the internet. If you give them something they want, they will find it by searching the internet.
In order to progress to the next step you must make your own YouTube videos, even if you feel uncomfortable in front of the camera. It is so important to make your own videos to demonstrate authenticity that you are a “trusted authority”…someone who commands respect…
- The more videos that you produce, the more relaxed you will feel in front of the camera
- “Linking your YouTube account to your other social media accounts will provide portals for more of your online audience to develop authentic relationships with you…another example of how social media works together to promote your brand.”
“The importance of maximizing your potential can not be stressed enough. Be unstoppable…”
2) What is Social Bookmarking?
According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, it is a centralized online service which enables users to add, annotate, edit, and share bookmarks of web documents. Many online bookmark management services have been launched since 1996; Delicious, founded in 2003, popularized the terms “social bookmarking” and “tagging“. Tagging is a significant feature of social bookmarking systems, enabling users to organize their bookmarks in flexible ways and develop shared vocabularies known as folksonomies.
3) Does Social Bookmarking Really Make a Difference?
“This is the practice of saving bookmarks to a public website and “tagging” them with keywords. Visitors to social bookmarking sites can search for resources by keyword, person, or popularity and see the public bookmarks, tags, and classification schemes that registered users have created and saved. Social bookmarking is particularly useful when collecting a set of resources that are to be shared with others.”
Anyone can involve themselves in social bookmarking which makes available new ways of organizing information and categorizing resources. It gives access to other people’s bookmarked resources so that users can easily make social connections with other individuals interested in just about any topic.
Users are given the opportunity to express different aspects on information and resources through “informal organizational structures.” Thus like-minded individuals can network and create new tribes of users that continue to influence the sharing of information. This will only become more and more popular with sites like Wikipedia, Digg and Delicious that foster this type of networking. Take advantage of these simple strategies because they give you a clear advantage when building your online community.

“Your friends, your family and your relationships must be cultivated like your garden. Time, effort, and creativity must be active participants to grow any relationship”
