To YouTube or Not to YouTube...that is the question!

OK, so after much debate, both in person and online, I have decided to open up this dialogue on Active Rain.  Posting real estate video on YouTube has become a hot button topic and here's why.  There are a number of people out there who believe that YouTube is a great place to post their real estate videos and other who warn against it for various reasons.  I highlighted the major pro's and con's and would then like Active Rainers to chime in.

PROS

-More visibility for the video

-Guaranteed eyeballs

-Title of video in YoutTube helps in SEO results

-Mass marketing 

 

CONS:

-No control over video once it is released to YouTube

-Non-relevant and sometimes, inappropriate videos follow real estate video

-Non-qualified eyeballs watching the video

-Once the viewer is done with your video you've lost them in the YouTube world 

 

What do you think?

UPDATE:  Be sure to check out the comments below...they offer a lot of great insight, tips and ideas on how to 'work' YouTube.  Thanks everybody!
