YouTube is now the world’s biggest online video platform, with 200 million unique users per month – the sixth largest audience on the Internet – reflecting users’ increasing appetite for Web video.

Yet video social networking sites are widely considered to be an unsuitable environment for advertisers, full of copyright violation and poor-quality, user-generated content.

By appreciating and embracing the sites as social arenas for self-expression and personal relationships, however, some brands turn the apparent disadvantages into new opportunities.

To understand the potential of this radically different digital channel, Futurescape analysed the social nature of the sites and the ways in which successful campaigns by major brands align themselves with the users’ motivations for participating.

The report explains the methods by which brand owners address the challenges of participating in social networks and their solutions for tapping into the users’ creativity.

Creative Solutions for Marketing on YouTube takes you through the whole process of conceptualising and launching a campaign and dealing with the challenges to enable you to arrive at your own creative solutions.

•  Discover the opportunities for incorporating video social sites into your marketing strategy
