5.Tweet videos! The power of twitter is non-debatable. Twitter is a social networking, list building powerhouse. And by twittering your videos you bring increased exposure and will see better conversions in everything that you do with your home based business. Twitter with video marketing is probably the best combination of free technology ever invented.
