Asheville Video Marketing via YouTube

Here is a clip from a new post on G Social Media that mentions some great information about Ask Asheville on YouTube. Please read:

YouTube has been a great outlet for one of my portfolio projects AskAsheville. We currently have over 600 subscribers, over 100,00 channel views, and over 500,000 actual video views. The mission of Ask Asheville was to video and highlight life, business and events in the AVL community. This has been well accomplished.

Asheville’s Social Media Movers & Shakers

I am just amazed by the community and social media efforts in Asheville North Carolina. When G Social Media first developed AskAsheville, the networking was just beginning. There was already a great group of local bloggers, and now Twitter and Facebook  was taking hold and moves were being made. Top Floor Studio… a web, social and mobile company in the Asheville area had not only helped the online world, but was also a key business that brought people together in person locally as well, and still do.

Social Media is not just about online networking and marketing; but it is also about who you are and what you do face to face in your everyday life. Being sociable is what many define as “old fashioned people skills.” Our goal here in Asheville North Carolina is to not only move and shake online, but to forward our local community hands on.
