To be honest, making a video to put up onto youtube scares the hell out of me. Yet Youtube videos traffic is vital. Most of the time I will spend all day thinking what to say and how to say it, only to change my mind the next day.
Writing content was always my talent when growing up, english was my best subject. My great mountain in life that I needed to climb was actually my ability to talk to others. So just like putting on winter gear, strapping on that best snowboard of yours, you just have to push yourself off and go.
Why use youtube.
I remember the days when youtube first came on in 2005. It was one of those fads I thought would of faded, but from where it is today, it’s never going to stop. So it’s not a matter of why, but when you are going to get on that bandwagon.
Everyone is migrating to youtube for everything from entertainment to how to do it youself videos. This site has an impressive 3 billion daily views, just image 5% of that being yours, your website would explode.
According to wikipeda, google bought youtube for 1.6 million in 2006, that’s good news for you. Google will use your videos to index in search engines, helping you get ranked even better.

What you need for youtube.
All you really need to start off doing youtube videos is a mice and video software. Increase traffic, youtube videos will feel like a piece of cake. A Webcam is fun to have, but you can start making video by capturing screen activity and using your voice as a narrator.
I had a microphone in storage from an old kareoke machine that plugs into a usb port. You can use any microphone as long as it picks up your voice well, just make sure you test it first before using it.
If you can’t find one, you can check out amazon, they do have good deals on microphones.
Some of these free video screen editing programs I haven’t had a chance to use, so use at your own risk.
