It is not that hard to create your own YouTube Tutorial as part of your public database – one that makes it easy for users to find what they are looking for. You may have very interesting material for the public to see, but the searches are probably not as simple as a simple Google keyword. You offer more precision. it helps to know something about the subject matter and how the data is structured.
Offer your public a YouTube tutorial as soon as they log into the database. It tells them about your interesting holdings and shows them how easy it is find things. The video can be short and easy to follow, getting your clients get off to a pleasant experience.
