Another pro to using YouTube to share your own videos with other internet users is uses.   Although a high number of internet users utilize YouTube videos for fun or for personal reasons, there are many others using them for business or to up their exposure.   You need to bear in mind that millions of web users watch videos on YouTube.   While your YouTube video will be unlikely to receive one million views, you could get quite a bit.  Whether you are advertising your services, like as a website designer or an internet actress, you can do so through YouTube.   The only thing you may want to do is try not to take the spam strategy.   If you’re advertising yourself as a website designer, consider taking a couple of videos of you making a website or use your movie to research websites that you have made.  Simply adding your business information at the end of the movie is a excellent way to get your point across, but without creating your YouTube video look as it is an advertisement.

As you can see, there are a number of advantages and disadvantages, or pros and cons, to making your own YouTube videos.  As stated above, it’s advised that you use your best judgment.   Needless to say, you can post a video on YouTube if you prefer to do so, but just be certain that you are doing so safely.
