What's your skill set, or skill set availability, when it comes to hosting a website? Something like Wordpress is easy and quick to set up, but still has its pitfalls for those who aren't familiar with it. Rather than telling you to learn Wordpress, there may be other web based content management systems that are probably much simpler to set up.

Of course, if you plan to alter the site in the long run to add premium services, whichever system you choose will need that capability. Wordpress certainly can do that, but it can be technically difficult to achieve something in Wordpress when you can't find a plugin to do it.

To provide a good answer, it might help to share what your goals are for the site. Are you wanting to make money from the videos being viewed, from services being sold that relate to the videos, etc? Is the website intended to make money or just act as a form of marketing for the business?

Vimeo costs about US$200/yr from memory for an account, whereas youtube videos can be embedded in a site for free. Not sure whether they force advertising into the videos though, so that may be a factor.

The purpose of website is to generate money in long run, as well act as assistance to members who might use it.
Something like educational website , which start as free and if it acquires critical threshold , it can be turned in profit for premium services and keeping most of it free.
