#1: Viddler – One of the best video sharing sites ever, Viddler is free and allows you to upload videos that go on forever. That means no video length limit, as long as you fit into their 500MB policy. Choose an account with or without ads.

#2: Vimeo – Another great sharing site that acts more as a social video network than a sharing space, Vimeo is known to attract more creative users than usual. If your videos are artistic genius, then this is the platform you should be using to build a community.

#3: Dailymotion – With a basic account over at Dailymotion, you will be able to upload videos that are 1GB or less. However, if you are uploading unique, creative content – then the site will promote and share your videos more often.

#4: Facebook – Yes, yes Facebook is a social network. But it’s also one of the world’s most highly viral video sharing platforms. If you aren’t sharing your videos here, then you are missing out on major amounts of traffic. Just repost from YouTube!

#5: Ustream – According to Mashable, Ustream is one of the best video sharing sites for live broadcasting. If your brand likes to stream their content live, then you should become a broadcaster on this platform.

#6: Blip.tv – Certainly the best video sharing site for people that love to produce their own web shows, which are followed like serials on the platform. Continuous video definitely has a place in the world, and if you do a daily or weekly show, this is the place to put it.

#7: Qik – You may not have heard, but apps are in and this video sharing network is incredible. It allows you to stream live video to people in your close, personal network, post to social networks and save the video for later review.

#8: Metacafe – Also one of the best video sharing sites for short-form video, like YouTube. Watch bits of movies and other video content and enjoy their large community of engaged users.

#9: Break – An offbeat video sharing site for people with a sense of humor, if your videos are funny then send them to Break!

#10: Veoh – One of the lesser known video sharing sites, Veoh still has something to offer if you are looking to gain some extra exposure with short clips.

With these ten best video sharing sites your small business will be able to network your video to more people, who will give you insight on your videos. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing real people sharing and caring about the work that you have put into a brand video. It might even go viral someday!
