I have just made my first video for my website - very proud of the effort - although know there is a lot to improve on for next time.

My question is:
Should I just embed this video into my post and have it open directly or should I share it from youtube?

What is best and why?

If you do want to view it and offer any comment on what I can do to improve - feel free - but I don't want to be seen to be spamming - its just my first one. The youtube link is https://youtu.be/AB_1MMz0alw

Thanks

Richard

Good video, especially for a first. I use YouTube to drive traffic from my videos to my websites. I suggest you put a link to your website in the first line of the description under the video - I always do. Then I embed the video on my website making sure the 'suggestion videos' don't show up at the end so my visitors stay on my site instead of going to YouTube to watch other videos. And I've got lots more YouTube related suggestions for you. Check out https://my.wealthyaffiliate.com/marionblack/training ~Marion

Wow - great feedback - thanks. I am in learning over-load at present - but very exciting. I'll take a look at these and then work on embedding and promoting. The tips are great.

Hi Marion again
A couple more questions.
1. How do I select the photo that is showing on the video when it is waiting to play? I can't seem to edit anything in youtube.
2. How do you edit the description so I can add my web address?
Thanks
Richard

1) Go to Info and Settings for the video and click on Custom Thumbnail to upload an image of your choice. The thumbnail is very important as that's the image people see before they make the decision to watch your video. My best thumbnails are the ones with a blue background. Check out my channel https://www.youtube.com/c/MarionBlackEntrepreneur

And to edit the description - when you hover over the description under your video you'll see a little 'pencil' icon on the right. Click that to edit. I can't do an image because the icon disappears when I move my cursor

Thanks for this.
My account evidently is not eligible to do this - must be too new or similar. I'll follow it up.

Overload brings its own problems Ray, concentrate on WA and what great people like Marion have to teach us and you won't go far wrong!
