Good video services many needs for both the viewer and the creator. The viewer can find useful information, a more complete look at a product or service, and entertainment. The creator can get their message across in a friendly way, that’s easy to digest and memorable. More importantly, the creator controls how the message is expressed.

A great example, now that it’s tax time, is how the software company TurboTax is using their YouTube channel as a video services center. Viewers can visit the channel and find a wide range of video services programs that answer tax questions and demonstrate how TurboTax can help. This is great marketing, smartly executed. TurboTax draws millions of viewers to their channel who are seeking exactly the help that they provide. The utility of the videos encourages sharing, increasing traffic and SEO.
