#6 – Craigslist and YouTube
Every beginning is tough and filled with hardships. So were the beginnings of YouTube. In its early days, YouTube wasn’t quite popular. Almost no one knew about a website called YouTube on which you could post videos.
Because of the poor popularity of their website, the founders of YouTube took massive action and started to promote the website on Craigslist. The guys even offered $100 to attractive girls of legal age to post videos on YouTube for the purpose of raising the website’s popularity.
