YouTube is a great place to start promoting your business online with videos. YouTube is an easy, free and quick way to promote your videos to a large audience. How can you do this effectively without stepping outside the boundaries of your community?

- Make sure you use your comments in a professional way. You can be reported by other users for spam or negative feedback. Other users can report you if you spam or use foul language in a video.
- Don’t spam, period.

- You can create your content.

Someone will likely come after you, and then your company’s liability shifts from the website. Copyrighted music should not be used unless you have a license. If you have trouble finding the right music, Google Creative Commons music. You must properly attribute the music. You must get permission before you use music clips, TV clips or movie clips. You are effectively stealing another person’s work if you don’t get permission.
- Be clear.
