Creating video content is slowly becoming the norm. As more and more people create content online, there is an increasing need for creativity in order to get that content discovered. This, along with the advancement of high-definition cameras being made into flip-cams (and phones), enables anyone to capture high quality video relatively cheaply.
Video sites like YouTube and Viddler are benefiting from this. Their popularity constantly attracts mainstream attention. If you’re a vlogger (video blogger) or create any type of video content, it’s important that you reach more people and attract more eyeballs to your content. Do you want to become a TubeMogul?
TubeMogul OneLoad is a free video upload site that provides a single point for deploying uploads to the top video and social networking sites, as well as powerful analytics on the viewing of your videos. We touched on this service a while back in our directory.
In this article, I am going to cover the features you will get with a free TubeMogul account.
Support For Multiple Sites & File Formats
The TubeMogul free video upload site currently supports over 25 sites, including YouTube, Blip.tv, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Yahoo Video, Viddler, Vimeo Plus, 5min, and Dailymotion.
When uploading a video, TubeMogul supports 7 different file formats: avi, wmv, mov, mpg, mp4, flv, and m4v.
Simple Video Tagging & Uploading
Uploading a video using this free video upload site is easy. You simply go to the Upload tab on your account and select your video for upload. The regular upload box allows for videos up to 100MB in size.
If you want to upload a video larger than 100MB, simply use the Java uploader on the right side of the page.
Once your video is uploaded, you will need to fill in the information for it, which includes a title, description, tags, and category. For tags, TubeMogul displays how the tags will look on all of the possible video sites.
After your video is uploaded, you are taken to a screen where you can select which sites you would like the video to be posted to. You can submit all of your account information to the sites (usernames, passwords) and customize settings (like allowing comments) for each site individually.

Promote Your Videos
After you get all of your settings straight and click the Launch button, you can begin promoting your videos and monitoring their stats. For promoting options, simply go to the My Uploads tab, and click on [More] under the Tools column. Then click Viralize.
You are taken to a screen where you can embed the video on blogs and websites, send it to bookmarking and news websites, create a TubeMogul badge for your blog, and create a link to your video.
Get Cross-Site Analytics
One of the features that sets TubeMogul apart is their analytics. They allow for cross-site tracking statistics for all of your videos. From the reporting dashboard, you can view and compare viewing information on your videos across the different sites you’ve uploaded them to.
Analytics include views, comments, and ratings and are shown trending over time. View the attention span of viewers for your videos and the number of embeds as well.

In conclusion, TubeMogul allows you to get your video content out to the masses while saving yout the time and hassle it takes to upload it to each site/network individually.
For more information on using TubeMogul, they offer free demos every Friday at what they call TubeMogul University. It is designed to help new users become familiar with all of the available features. The information is sent to your email after you create a free account.
