On YouTube, You or Your Business Is the Star

A re you an entrepreneur launching a new business and need to build product awareness among a highly targeted audience using limited resources? Perhaps you re a small-business operator looking for creative ways to grow your business, find and reach new customers or clients, retain your existing customers, and keep costs down, but at the same time discover innovative ways to outmaneuver your competition-all on a tight budget.
