Marketing Yourself: Encouraging Social Shares
The number one rule of marketing and branding is to sell yourself. No one will buy what you have to offer until you give them a reason to buy it.

The most successful method, however, has to be through the form of video content.
We've already discussed how videos are able to engage and compel users in ways that other forms of media cannot.

Most sites put advertisements or links to their social media outlets at the end of their video content. This gives the user the opportunity to learn more about your business or organization while also giving your business more likes and followers.
