YouTube is one of the popular video sharing sites, and for any content marketer, it’s one of the must-have social channels.

I publish atleast 3-5 videos every month on my YouTube channel over here, and I could see a significant growth of followers due to updates, and also due to Youtube subscribe button, here at ShoutMeLoud sidebar.
