Are you wondering how to get started posting training on YouTube? Maybe you’re thinking…I’m not a techie… I really don’t know what to do. Where do I start? I don’t have a lot of money… I don’t have a lot of experience… I’m just not really sure what to do. Ryan Perry, owner/ operator of Simple Biz Support has answers to all of these questions and more.

According to the results of the 6th Annual Learning Tools Survey compiled by the Center for Learning and Performance Technologies (Oct. 2012) YouTube ranks #2 out of 25 learning tools for creating and delivering content.

Setting up a YouTube Channel is easy to do. Designing a YouTube Channel to suit your training/business needs takes more thought and consideration. Besides just having a place for your video to reside, there is the video itself to consider…what types of equipment are recommended for creating professional training videos?

In this brief and informative presentation, Ryan will answer some basic questions about using YouTube and choosing video equipment:
  • What's the minimum I need to get started?
  • How can I create a channel?
  • How should I organize my YouTube page?
  • What are the Do's & Don'ts when creating a channel?
  • How can I choose the best camcorder and microphone?
  • What are some ways to promote my channel?
  • Are there ways to track usage of my videos?
For the last 4 years, Ryan Perry has been working with small business owners and helping them to promote their businesses on the Internet using free and low cost tools. His company, Simple Biz Support, is based in Santa Rosa California.

Simple Biz Support provides Internet marketing programs for small businesses using Internet Marketing (Social Marketing) and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) strategies.
