    You think you can promote your forum?

    Since I opened my youtube account, my videos have been viewed over 4.3 million times, I have 9,767 subscribers and my youtube channel has been viewed 233,667 times.

    This is my latest video. It has received 16,023 views since May 10th, been rated 195 times and has a 5 star rating.

    Total cost to me, $0, besides my time.

    It certainly depends on your niche. My most populair video has only 500 views, due to my niche.

    That is indeed an excellent promotional strategy, Kevin - the video above in particular is not only informative, but it certainly has the emotional power to "grab" the attention of viewers.

    You do indeed have a very successful YouTube channel and I admire that. I tried it once, but eh.

    I've always admired your YouTube strategy, too but it really only works for certain niches.

    But congratulations to you; this is a free and easy way to attract a lot of attention and build a nice reputation. Great work! :)

    Kudos on your YouTube success! I just don't think it would work for me. (I did ask my members to film a video Christmas card, maybe that will get some views.)

    This thread is not for bragging rights, its a challange. The gauntlet has been thrown down.

    Step up, and rise to the occasion. What have you done - not what your "going to do" - to best my example.

    Offtopic - does the youtube normally show like that? It doesn't on my site...
