The 10 Best Video Hosting Sites For Social Video Marketing

By K. Pearce

Social video marketing is one of the hottest emerging trends in 2011. Marketing executives are finally realizing the power of online video to engage their audience, increase brand awareness and improve the reach of their social media efforts.

If you want to promote your latest online video with social video marketing then these video hosting sites are your best options:

1. Youtube

Youtube continues to dominate the online video space. With over 2 billion videos watched every day on the site, no other site comes close. Every video marketing campaign should use Youtube because it offers the best opportunity to capture a large audience.

2. Vimeo

Vimeo is a more social-based video hosting website. It tends to be the favorite of independent producers and it has some of the highest quality short films on the Internet. I think overall Vimeo has the best looking embeddable player of all the video hosting and sharing sites.

3. MetaCafe

Metacafe is one of the world’s largest video sites and has lots of short videos, funny movies and clips. This site also has a social-focus and integrates with Facebook so that every time you upload a video, it can automatically be sent to your Facebook Page.

4. BlipTV

Blip TV is a free video blogging, podcasting and video sharing portal. They also have a decent revenue sharing program. If you have a regular online TV show, Blip TV is a great platform because they make it easy to distribute your show across the web.

5. DailyMotion

DailyMotion has one of the largest collections of music videos, short movies and extreme sports videos on the Internet. They offer many of the features of Youtube and the other video hosting websites. They are based in Europe.

6. Revver

Revver tends to collect videos from other video sharing sites but they also have a massive collection of videos uploaded by their users. They have an interesting revenue sharing program where an unobtrusive ad is shown at the end of your video and if anyone clicks on the ad, you get a 50% share of the revenue. They also offer unlimited video storage and file size.

7. Google Video

While overshadowed by Youtube, Google’s other video site still gets significant traffic and ranks well in Google Search. Google Video has many of the features of Youtube but with more specific content categories like Business, Documentary, Educational, Music, Comedy, etc.

8. Veoh

Veoh has made a name for itself by hosting TV and film studio content but it also has lots of independent films and user-uploaded videos.

9. Viddler

Videler is an easy-to-use video platform for promoting your online videos. They really focus on helping people and brands with social video marketing. To help you with this they offer detailed video analytics, ad revenue sharing and better support than most of the other video sites. You can customize the embeddable player, overlay your logo and easily link back to your website.

10. LiveVideo

LiveVideo is another great option to upload your videos. Unlike many other video sharing sites they offer dofollow links to help boost your website ranking.
