    I think the video is good enough to do it. email spam, posting in forums, are there any other ways? The intent here is to promote the video with the ultimate objective of promoting the business. My role here is to use this as a test; an opportunity to learn how to promote this business/video with an eye towards selling this service in the future. This project (for me) is a "freebie" and is being done as a favor. Any help/advice appreciated, and thanks in advance.

    Currently it is very costly, unless you have an uber-viral video. Still it is hard, unless a big channel grabs it up.

    Your best bet is to buy real views, as cheap ppc popup hits & promote the video to the frontpage of one categorie like "education" where you don't have big competition. Nevertheless, cheap is here very rational, you have to spend xxx$

    Or you try with consistent mass commenting and rating to the top on YouTube with an comment rater.

    Facebook. They can watch it from the news feed and like / comment on the video making it spread through more friends news feeds and it increases youtube views like crazy giving you more youtube views.

    Why not spam it on youtube by comment spamming it on other videos then rate your comments to the highest rated. Thats what i do , duh is a youtube video get traffic from youtube. Why spam other forums when all you need is youtube in itself to promote your video. Dont need to buy fake views, just get real views by putting it all over the place of youtube and if its a really good video then it should go viral .Thats it get to work , spam the shit out of youtube and get that shit viewed.

    Home Page:
    Get a lot of ratings on your video and it will jump to the top of the youtube rankings....

    You do need a keyword targeted title for your video.

    Who's searching for ACS?

    I appreciate that idea. What's a good keyword? "computer" ? "repair" ? I have to ask why anyone would be searching for those words on YouTube. Why would someone search for this kind of video on YouTube? This is all very new to me.

    Some good ways:
    Step 1 - Grabbing the link
    Go on a YouTube Video of Your's and Grab its youtu.be link (This is now the official sharing link by YouTube) by clicking the share button below your video

    Step 2 - Sharing on Facebook
    Share the link on Your Facebook Wall and Chat all your online friend to watch it just to get the view (If you have 20 people online, think of getting those 20 views, it will help you a lot)
    Also pleasing them to like your post will make it appear on the top news on facebook and then it will get more attention

    Step 2.1 - Beg your facebook friends
    Begging your friends to post your video on their wall will also generate you some good views =D Spread it as much as you can, with their help you can succeed!

    Step 3 - Post a bulletin
    Log in on YouTube, and Go on your channel page, on the top left, next to the channel settings, themes, modules etc. there is the Post Bulletin Button, Click it and Share the youtu.be link there and in the message box, enter a text saying "Please watch this video and help me get views" or something similar, if your friends/subs are generous they will most probably click your video and you will get some extra views

    Step 4 - Post the youtu.be link on Forums
    If you post a direct youtu.be link and don't embed it on a forum/website, i think it gets more views, because actually users watch it on the official youtube page and it counts views more efficiently, so try putting a direct link for example from forums, and when they click it from the forum or open it in a new tab, at the insight views it will say that views came from FORUM URL and this is going to help you a lot at the views, especially if the forum has many members, a good way to make the best out of this idea, is to go on the "OFF TOPIC" section of big forums and post your youtu.be links there!!

    Step 5 - Embed your video on your site blog
    If you get some serious views on your blog this is also going to help you get some views on youtube, for example i posted one song i made on my blog and got like 25 views from it
