I just made it into the You Tube partner program!
Being a You Tube Partner allows you to have a clickable banner, custom graphic above your videos, custom thumbnails, and to my surprise, really did wonders for SEO on my web site. Literally over night.
While most of you guys are looking for local traffic to your web site, putting together an impressive You Tube channel will drive more traffic to your site world wide and once partnered, SEO takes a giant leap forward getting all the local traffic you can handle.
Not to mention, having a bunch of videos for potential customers to see your work wouldn't hurt your conversion rate either.
