Wouldn't it be nice if you could do it all in just one step?
Recently, I stumbled upon a free — yes, free! — video submission service, which allows for automated submission of your video to not one, not two or three, but to all the 12 big video sites all at once — including YouTube, MySpace, MetaCafe, Revver, Google Video, AOL, Yahoo!, and more.
Plus, there's no setup, and it's free to boot! It's…
The interface is simple and clean. It allows you to add a title, description, tags, and category settings to you video. And you can upload as many videos as you want at no cost.
Not only that, but you can also track your videos across all of those sites — including views, hits, and reach — with easy-to-follow charts and visual graphs, which you can export to spreadsheets, too, if you wish.
You can track trends, buzz, marketing research, competitive intelligence, and more. You can even analyze which video-sharing service is getting the most views.
Bottom line, logging onto multiple sites is no longer necessary, let alone uploading your video to every one of them, one at a time.
According to my friend, Paul Colligan, who's actually working on a project with them right now, said that, unlike the “other guys,” he's never had a video that failed to upload, and he's never had weird or additional text inserted into his uploads with them.
Personally, I think this is going to be a truly powerful tool for bloggers, vloggers, and video buffs. But with the analytics package that comes with it, this is truly going to be an awesome tool specifically for marketers.
I haven't tried them yet, but I'll be testing them out this month and report back my findings on this blog. So keep your eyes peeled!
Until then, note that TubeMogul is in beta right now (and has been since November, 2006), so I surmise that it won't be free for too long. You better get an account now.
