Whether you are a musician, comedian, dancer or any type of performer, you should take advantage of every opportunity to get on stage or in front of people. On these occasions, having someone videotape the performance is important. Here are three of the many benefits to posting the public performance to YouTube later on.
1. Viewers and fans can see where you perform.
When people who view your channel see that you are performing in certain locations, they might decide to attend your next show.
