Youtube video in sidebar,,, good or waste of space?

    So I'm still tweaking my new theme on my tourist site. I have a nice wide 300 pixel sidebar at the top, and a youtube video would look great there.

    I also make my own videos so I could feature my own. In fact around holiday events I could show a related video. Right now at Universal Studios it's Mardi Gras time, and I have videos of that. smile

    BUT, your sidebars are also very valuable for ad spots. So would it be worth it to show a video, or not? hmm

      Just ask yourself, does the video add value to a visit to your site?  It could be a very good marketing tool if you make the video yourself or have it made for you.  Go onto fiverr and have a great intro made for you then add some slides and graphics showing what visitors to your site can expect.  Adding several videos from different experiences can bring in a lot of visitors.

        Thanks for the advice. I could put the video right in my homepage content also. Not sure yet, still thinking. Thanks. smile
