Generating BUZZ PAGE

Generating BUZZ - How-To Videos “ Now a great example, I think one of the best examples of how-to videos, is done by Embarq… some of the videos have been, have really decent view counts considering, you know, where it comes from, that it’s coming from a brand. That makes sense because its helped get this company’s name out to a broader consumer base, and if you just Google, you know, “How to install a blank, blank, a T1 line or a DSL line”, or whatever it is, there’s a good chance that you might come across those videos and then you know about this company and its services.” - Daisy Whitney on Dishymix Podcast Episode 90 PAGE
