Paros is a beautiful Island. Some say paradise like. Still relatively clean and full of natural beauty.
We all wish to spend most of our time here and make a reasonable living doing so.
This is one of the biggest challenges we face as being part of Paros community.
Since most of us depend on tourists, visitors who make a stop on this rock in the middle of the Cyclades, it is our challenge to bring to the island more of them, more of those who would appreciate what the island has to offer, our kind of people.
When I say – has to offer – indeed the island has many attractive activities going on that could draw to it different kinds of people.
Our challenge is to bring more traffic, on line and off line, to what we are doing.
More than 200 million people use You Tube every month.
A large percent of them, mostly young people age 20-30, use You Tube as a search engine,
That is they search for key words.
Today more than half of the information on the internet is in video,
And this is growing all the time.
Google's policy places video high on the rankings for search results.
The more a video has high rating and comments on You Tube the higher it ranks on Google too.
Another advantage of video is that if a video is fun, inspiring, funny or cool – it spreads easily through social networks such as facebook and my space.
The best way to bring visitors to Paros is to show a real reflection of the reality here. Scenery, testimonials, reactions, art, all documented in a creative way.
When one uploads a video one has to add location!!!
Today You Tube is connected to Google maps and when uploading a video there is a map to show exactly where this video was taken.
