Here is another do it yourself Web marketing tip and hint. Darren Rose talks about the benefits to using video posts on your blog in this video. Although a video takes longer to produce it is much more powerful than mere a blog containing only text and perhaps a photo or illustration.
Some of the real benefits he discusses in the video are:
- You can make a personal connection with video unavailable through the written word.
- It is a great way to make a good first impression, especially if embedded on your landing page.
- You get the opportunity to engage a different kind of visitor than you might normally.
- Video lends itself to an easier way to demonstrate things physically.
I use video for my LinkedIn guides and if you follow me you should know by know how successful marketing Judy’s party centerpiece business has been through her YouTube (and other) channels. She has over 1.43 million views since I started marketing her products and services through YouTube in 2007. We use videos to physically demonstrate her products as well as how do it yourselfers can makes various centerpieces as well as balloon decorations, computer graphics, etc. There are free programs available for novices as well as advanced versions. Jump in, the water is fine!
BTW. I just got an invite from YouTube to place ads and earn revenue even on my little YouTube channel, which I haven’t done much on as of late.
