Any video you create you are going to want to publish to your Twitter feed so that your followers can see your videos as well as anyone searching for your hastags that you use in your tweets.


A very underrated way of sharing your videos is with Google Plus. Google plus has a lot of smaller communities that make it really easy to get your videos out there.
