1. Make sure it’s front and center on your website – keep it above the fold so your visitors don’t have to scroll down to find it.

4. Add a link to your email signature.

5. Upload your video to the world’s second largest search engine: YouTube.

6. Blog about it. Tell readers why you needed a video, what you hope to accomplish with it, or even the results you’ve seen since it was completed.

7. Use a free tool like HelloBar to let your website visitors know you have a new video treat for them to enjoy.

8. If people really like your video, they’ll want to share it. So make it super simple for them to do by including share links right next to the player.

9. Bring it along to conferences, trade shows, and meetings and play it anywhere you can find an audience willing to watch.
