channels on YouTube and hit #14 of MOST VIEWED “Director” channels on YouTube.

The YouTube “Honors” badge showed up on the COS YouTube site this month.  YouTube, which started in someone’s garage in January 2005, became a site in February, and video sharing started in April of 2005 now has more than 3 billion views per day. Circle of Seven Productions opened their YouTube channel in March of 2006 and now has over 1000 book-related videos and nearly 8 million views to the channel. Of the over 1000 videos, nearly half of all COS videos are getting more than 5000 views per video.

“Given the number of YouTube channels there are, I am extremely proud that ours received an Honor for the Most Viewed category,” says COS CEO Sheila English.  When asked what the allure to the channel was, English replied, “People love good stories. They are loyal to authors. They are looking for entertainment. You can see all of that on our channel.”
