Video hosting and sharing is one of the best way promote your business. The video should describe the product’s qualities and its benefits in an engaging way such that the viewer’s attention is drawn to the product being advertised and they feel like purchasing it.
This article is not about the benefits about video sharing or hosting, but about the best 7 video sharing sites that can help you to get better views for your videos. Here we go.
No doubt about that, YouTube is the best video sharing site on the planet. 10 years ago Jawed Karim, the co-founder of YouTube put up the first video on the website, now YouTube is bigger than our imagine.
Every second one hour of video is uploaded to YouTube, 6 billion hours of video are viewed every month. YouTube is the only site you can expect a viral for your video creations. The maximum file size you’ll be able to upload to YouTube is 128GB and the maximum duration is 11 hours.
Facebook Videos comes next into our list. Facebook is one of the best place to share your videos to a large audience. You can’t upload videos on Facebook as much as YouTube, your videos must be less than 45 minutes long and smaller than 1.75GB.
Vimeo is my personal favorite video sharing site I’m using to share and upload business promotion videos. Vimeo doesn’t have a huge audience like YouTube or Facebook, but it’s a network of people who are genuinely interested in film quality videos.
Vimeo comes with a clean layout and there is no distracting banners or 30 second commercial ads before your video starts. Vimeo basic account lets you upload 500MB per week and the pro version lets you get up to 20GB/week.
Dailymotion is a french French video sharing website on which users can upload, watch and share videos. You can upload video formats like 3gp, avi, divx, m4v, mkv, mov, mp4, mpeg, etc. Normally your files size won’t exceed 2 Gb for 100 minutes. If you want to upload more than 2GB, you need to use Dailymotion’s classic page.
Twitch comes next into our list. Twitch is used by gamers, people broadcast themselves playing or talking about games. Twitch gets 100+ million unique viewers per month and 1.7+ million unique broadcasters per month.
Veoh is now a part of Qlipso, a social content sharing company. Veoh gets millions of unique visitors per month. One of the advantages of Veoh is you can upload videos of any run length and hundreds of different formats accepted.
Metacafe comes last into our list. Metacafe is a unique video sharing website because users are paid directly for popular videos. After reaching a 20,000 view threshold, each additional 1,000 views earns a $5 payment. This is pretty cool function compare to any other video sharing sites.
