    Today on Video Marketing Madness – YouTube Clips. Ray explains how to use this new feature and why.



    You can grab 5 to 30 seconds from any video and make a clip out of it. Use the scissors icon underneath the video on the watch page. YouTube then creates a new URL for the clip, and it then has its own watch page. The full video is greyed out behind it. It’s a way to grab someone’s interest and entice them to watch the full video.

    Today on Video Marketing Madness – Why Live Videos Matter. Ray talks about why they are important and how to network with Live Videos.

    The audience can interact, it’s an easy content creator and Facebook and Youtube will push it out to more people.



    Ray uses it for networking. He’s friends with a restaurant owner and she goes live a few times per week. Ray watches, likes and comments, and she gives his escape room a shout out and that’s how they got to be friends. Ray also gives shout outs to businesses.
