A Few Video Marketing Tips

Video Marketing Tips

One way of explaining the online video marketing concept, is that it is a marketing strategy used to promote products and services, by making use of marketing videos, for the purpose of making aware their potential customers of the benefits of their products/services and persuading them to part with cash in exchange for these products or services.

So how can this be achieved ? I hope these Video Marketing Tips will help.

Your first consideration is that the first thing any experienced web user will look at the length of the video to decide if they want to spend that amount of time watching. Consequently the video needs to be reasonably short to get plenty of views. Seven one-minute videos will usually out perform one seven-minute video.

The next problem is keeping interest so you need an attention grabbing opening. Once you’ve grabbed their attention, you have to keep them engaged so fill with interesting visuals as well as your soundtrack.

If you can blend humour with education then potential customers will appreciate that you are sharing your knowledge and also be entertained at the same time.

A series of short videos will beat one video hands down when explaining things, even video marketing tips ! Create a series of videos that lead people along a path to your message. Don’t finish a message completely try to leave and open end to continue from. This could lead them to engage with your website particularly if your video asks a question they can react to at the end.

Humour is important. People tend to come back if something makes them smile. Try to get a balance between a serious message and being over funny so your message is delivered but in a light yet entertaining way.

Good Luck with your online business. I hope these Video Marketing Tips will help you on your way.

Getting The Most Out Of A FREE Website

Here is how you can get the most out of a program called Free Monthly Websites.

Free Monthly Websites, in my opinion the type of program that you either know what to do with or you do not. I will now show you how you can get the most of it and why Free Monthly Websites is such great tool which can earn you an extra income stream to your business for a long time to come.

The Three main categories we need to concentrate on here are:

1, Selling eBooks

2, Writing articles

3, Affiliate promotions

When you first login and download your website follow the tutorials which is very easy to do and eventually get your website onto your webspace. You are presented with a neat well designed Adsense website.

What can you do with your free website? Well to be honest the free website has duplicate content so you can rule out getting to the top of the search engine rankings, the premier websites are a different kettle of fish all together but I will get to those in a moment.

Take option 1 above Selling eBooks if you sell eBooks especially PLR (private Label Content) conversions, you will find Free Monthly Websites have a rather large variety of websites that correspond with a lot of the PLR out there (if you are a premier member you get a bonus PLR eBook). All you need to do is upload your eBook to a convenient location on your webspace and place a few corresponding links inside your PLR eBook for example:

I have a weight loss eBook and a small paragraph saying there are 100s ways to lose weight which can be found in various forms from Books to television to fitness programs blah blah blah you could not take this small paragraph and insert your Free Monthly Websites website link in a prime location for instance there are 100’s ways to lose weight which can be found in various forms from Books to television to fitness programs the best resource I found is at www.yourfreemonthlywebsites.com/fitness_website

ow imagine you done this to all your eBooks! Simply take a little time upload your Free Monthly Websites website to your webspace then reopen your PLR eBooks and insert the relevant hyperlink which corresponds to your website and there you have it. For about 2 hours work you have created an income stream for life. Now imagine you have 50 PLR eBooks doing the rounds on eBay or your blog. Your AdSense revenue is going to creep up and up until you are earning a very respectable income. It is a simple case of wash rinse repeat.

Option number 2 is even easier. I know most of you will at some point, or do write articles and submit them to relevant article directories. Well why not try writing an article about one of the subjects related to Free Monthly Websites? Upload your website to a location on your webspace, place the link in your article and there you have it, submit to article directories like:

http://www.articledashboard.com/

http://www.articlebasement.com/

http://ezinearticles.com/

http://www.goarticles.com/

And another income stream will start.

The third option is a little different. Using your Free Monthly Websites affiliate link to promote the website and earn a potential 98.50 per referral. You can place your link in the websites provided for you and in the eBooks you sell and articles you write this can generate a missive earnings income of 98.50.

So with your website up on your webspace and your eBook on eBay and your articles in the article directories, you will be well on your way to earning a nice income from a free resource.

I mentioned earlier your Premier Members website. These are a fantastic resource and are worth every penny for the simple fact you receive a private label eBook and 20 articles with every Premier Membership website every month. Not only can you use the eBooks and articles in the ways I have explained, you can key word optimize your website for the search engines, change the content and make your sites as original as you like. In other words you have full edit rights. So if you imagine directing a visitor to your Premier Website via an eBook or article, they will find a fully edited site with offers and affiliate links promotions, and even an Aweber signup box (which you can integrate with a little HTML knowledge) which in turn will create more revenue and more subscribers for you.

My recommendations are if you have a few hours to spare get started with this and you will soon see a Google AdSense income. If you use the Premier Websites, you can place affiliate banners, Clickbank affiliate links and Aweber signup box on your site as well as edit all your own content via an easy edit control panel..

If you are going to move into this business, I recommend you take the Full Premier Websites Access!

But if you have reservations take the free option you cant fail as there there are great free training videos to guide you. Here is a link Free Monthly website

Thank you for reading I hope you enjoyed my review.

Internet Video Advertising

The corporate world understands the market power of internet video advertising. Web display ads and videos are going to generate a lot of income. Jupiter Research forecasts U.S. online spending to rise from 19.9 billion this year to about 36 billion in 2011. Most people who serf the web are looking for information.

The web brings a new phenomenon to advertising by presenting streaming video. The consumer can learn about a product, and the advertiser can feature as much content as he chooses. In terms of time and distribution the web is the best way to reach a large audience. For a business to have this type proximity to their customer has been unheard of before the web and Internet Video Marketing.

The market power of internet video advertising is felt across the globe, in such a way is not matched by any other media. The market power that the web offers a small business is the direct results of the technology section. The opening of this type communication is still gaining steam. A sizable surge in consumer confidence in the web as an information portal will occur as the secondary market of mobile devices grows.

Now you do not have to be at your PC to get the latest information on the web. The objective of advertising is to get your brand known. To do that you have to give the consumer reasons for using your product. In the advertisement you have to reflect your firm’s commitment to the customer and product. Internet video advertising helps you do it in a personal way.

What was once a Mom and Pop type business can blossom into a giant. The focus of the web is to offer a chance to fabricate a world wide business without moving outside of your base of operation. The important geographic advantage to having real estate on the web has to be the fact that you can be everywhere at one time.

Location is everything in some businesses and the bulk of web advertising is to give you a solid logistical foothold throughout the United States and abroad. The lack of a regional nature of the web coupled with a methodically packaged advertising campaign can be the most powerful tool to reach a diverse target market. This is what online advertising does that you are not likely to find anywhere else for the same price.

Online advertising shows you how to develop a new market outside of your location. Web streaming video is a way to reach in an emotional and interactive way a wide audience. It is the least expensive commercial for you to produce and show. Motion content can exist right alongside of static content. This is a way to get back into the saddle if your sales are lagging. It is time to explore the world of online advertising and invest in your future.

Powerpoint To Cash

I think that most people think that Powerpoint only has one use. Most probably only see it as a tool for explaining things. That is far from the case. I use Powerpoint for a variety of things. One of these is allows me to make CPA commissions. It is a very simple little scheme that takes very little time to do.
For me it sometimes takes longer to pick the subject than to do the work involved to set it up. Obviously it has to be a subject that people are interested in so you can get plenty of traffic to it but that is probably the hardest part of this scheme. I have a free report on how to do this which you can receive on this page Powerpoint Commissions

Using Video for CPA Offers

If you think you would like to earn money from CPA offers it can be a bit more difficult than it seems. Firstly you have the problem of getting accepted by the networks, then there is a geographical problem in that many offers don’t cross international borders and then there are the restrictions on how you are allowed to drive traffic to the offers. Many of the simplest ways are disallowed and people have to dream up ways of disguising where the traffic came from.  Using Video for CPA offers has been unusuak ubtil recently.

I have fallen lucky with a video site that allows CPA offers to surround your video. So if you can match a video to a CPA offer you just need to drive some traffic and you are golden. It doesn’t even need to be your video. You can just repurpose one from YouTube. You can retitle for SEO purposes and add your own keywords and then you are good to go. Your own internet video marketing product.
Take a look at this example page where I have targeted Blackberry Torch 9800. You are allowed to fill three areas on the page with offers. It doesn’t have to be CPA. If you prefer you can use adsense or clickbank offers. I have chosen CPA in this case so that the page as a solid purpose for driving traffic. These are my early thoughts on finding a simple way to profit from CPA offers. These offers are only email submit type so there is no real persuasion needed and they convert well. I hope this is a tip that will serve you well but the results will depend on how successful you are at getting traffic to the page.

Socrates is a fabulous theme which is well worth the small premium to be  ahead of the game.
