However there are strategies into uploading images and videos.

Image Sharing Strategy

                1. Gather images that you can upload right away including logos, book covers, and event photos.

      2.  Prepare a key term list to use for tags for each image:

              – company name

               –  author name

                 – home city

       3.  Prepare these when you want to upload an image:

               – a short title that uses at least two key terms

              –  a description that uses several key terms

 

Uploading/Optimizing Videos Strategy    

       1.  Prepare a list of key terms and use them as tags and in the body of a video’s title and description

        2.  Add a date and a Google map to the video location

       3.  Determine the organization of your account:

          – Create titles, descriptions, and key terms to use as tags for each playlist

         –  Browse YouTube videos to add to your playlist

        –  Decide which playlists to create in your account by person’s name, company, authors, book titles, and products

        –  Create galleries on your Website or blog using the embed code from your playlists.

   People are connecting with one another not only just through participating in the social media web 2.0, but also through image and video sharing.  It’s important to know how to connect to your target audience or other people that share the same interest as you in unique styles rather than just being on social media sites. In other words, bring something to the table that will help you stand out.
