Connecting over video

YouTube Videos Near Me is a unique tool that matches you with YouTube videos that were filmed within two miles of your current location.  It’s simple and straightforward to use. All you do is go to the site and it will automatically pinpoint your location on a map. Just zoom in on the red marker on the map to get a more specific current location and then you’ll be provided with the applicable videos. It may require you to sort through pages of irrelevant videos from the local masses, but eventually you’re bound to come across what you’re looking for.

This service could be helpful if you want to check out your current neighborhood or a neighborhood you’re considering moving into in the near future, be it for professional or personal curiosity. You might be able to see the local surroundings, amount of traffic, or what other businesses or located in that general area. You can also choose to watch videos from any other location, even if you are over two miles away, by moving the red market to the right location.

Secret, hidden use:

The second benefit of this service is that you can find local videos to showcase on your website or company blog. Not only will this create a feeling of unity for you and your community, but it can be a great networking tool, also. These YouTube videos may be a how-to for a local software company or an introductory video for a new small business around the corner from you. It can give you better insight into your competitors and into those with whom you can partner in the future.

Consider uploading your own videos so other business owners or even curious potential customers can learn more about you and your services. However, keep in mind that YouTube can only pull local videos if those videos have been geo-tagged. This may limit your search results. But even so, it might be informational and fun to take a closer look at your local competition.
