    Video Marketing Tips

    These tips will help you get started in the right direction…

    The first thing you want is a plan of attack.  What is it that you are trying to get across to people with your videos.  Maybe you want to help people see why they should join your business opportunity, maybe you want to share some golden nugget of information that will make a difference in their business or their life, or maybe you want to do a series of how to videos.  Of all of these, how to videos will get the most hits because people are searching for help to learn new skills.  So make sure to include some of them in your video campaigns.

    Video Marketing Success

    1. Try to tell a story through your videos.  It could be a story of your success online or in your primary business.  Keep them engaged and don’t forget to tell them what you told them.

    2. Share your video.  The most obvious is of course YouTube, but here is a list of others that would be good to use.  Just go to these sites sign up and load up your video.  Make sure to read the fine print, some places will not allow you to put videos on their sites that promote a business.  Don’t waste your time trying to put something out there thinking that they won’t notice, because eventually they will and when they do they will shut your account down!

    Video Sharing Sites:

    YouTube http://www.YouTube.com

    Spike http://www.spike.com/

    DailyMotion http://www.dailymotion.com/us

    MetaCafe http://www.dailymotion.com/us

    Vimeo http://vimeo.com/

    BuzzNet http://www.buzznet.com/

    LiveLink http://www.liveleak.com/

    Vimeo  http://vimeo.com/

    Viddler http://www.viddler.com/

    Yahoo Video http://video.yahoo.com/

    Traffic Geyser http://www.trafficgeyser.com/

    3. Create a video that is loaded with value and that people will share. The goal of every video should be to get shared numerous times.   The more people that share your video,the better chance that your video will  “go viral”, which is the ultimate goal!

    4. Draw attention to your video by using a catchy name, try to make it irresistible.

    5. Direct interest to your video by using annotations.  These can be added in Windows Movie Maker or YouTube.

      Great information Kathy. I’ve been doing video marketing for over a year now and I would have to say it’s probably the most effective means of marketing there is. I’ve found that when I’m myself, and produce content that is of interest to me and also within my sphere of knowledge, people love the much more personal nature of my information.nnYou’re doing a great job…keep it up!nnKathy J

      Hi Kathy,nnGreat tips on video marketing! I’ve done a few videos on YouTube but must admit writing is a love of mine so I prefer to write. I like what you said about the goal of videos is to get it shared. Syndication is a powerful way to build your online reputation but it starts with great content. nnThanks for the great tips!nnJanette Stollnhttp://www.marketingdirectsales.com

      Thanks for the note. I enjoy writing, but I also like to do videos. The bottom line.. online is that you need to get your stuff out to the viewers, and yes syndication is a wonderful thing for writing or videos.rnrnThanks again,rnKathy

      Nice to be here, Kathy!nnI have started videos, but I’m not “into” it yet. I realize how powerful they can be but I also see many who rely on them too much. For some, it’s just a quick easy way to get a quick message out… just to get the message out >>> some have very little to no value at all! Like any type of marketing, there are right ways to do it and wrong ways, just like you said in your video! I guess I’m finding my video “style” before I really launch into it! BTW, I LOVE your video and think it’s a great example for me to follow! I’ll be watching (in a fan kind of way not a creepy stalker kind of way!).nnTHANK You….nnDeborah

    • http://www.kathysammons.com/ Kathy Sammons

      Deborah,rnThanks for your comments. You can follow me anyway you want!! :) I agree that you should not do a video just to do one but to add value to the listener. That is why how do videos are so valuable. Do not be afraid to start doing them and give yourself some time to find your way to where you want to be when it comes to style.rnrnThanks again,rnKathyrnMobile Media Marketing

      Great common sense reminders. I think people should script their videos and not adlib. Some of those can be so painful to watch

      I do not do well if I do not script. Some of my videos have been painful even if I script, however I have found a technique that I use that has produced some very good videos. I call it picture analysis scripting. It takes time but it is worth it. If you want to learn how I do that just give me a call, 888-660-0940.rnrnThanks for coming by,rnKathyrnMobile Media Marketing The Wave of The Future

      Hey Kathy,nnVideo marketing is a very powerful way to get your content out there and it also gets ranked quickly in the search engines when done properly.nnUpon looking at the list of video sharing sites I would highly recommend “Traffic Geyser” to anyone looking to distribute their content online and get seen. It costs a little bit to use but has helped me gain page 1 rankings.nnTubeMogul is great free tool to help distribute content as well.nnIn Success,nHowie Perks

      Wow, I am blown away by the valuable content contained within your website and blog. As a fellow entrepreneur I believe in video marketing as a must have aspect of your business. This is something I have recently added and it is a work in progress. I have book marked your website for it’s value. Thanks.

    • http://www.kathysammons.com/ Kathy Sammons

      Wow Kevin that was quite a compliment, I really appreciate it. I will also make sure to get to yours ASAP.rnWith the video thing… you just have to get out there and do it. I spent one whole day doing my first one… 50 takes later I finally had a video and then the audio was not good!!! Can you believe that? But I have it out there, and now I have done 75 videos, some of them are obviously better than others. I really appreciate you coming by.rnrnKathy SammonsrnMobile Media Marketing The Wave of The Future

      Thanks for your comment and yes Traffic Geyser is a very good choice. Video syndication is not unlike any other syndication, you have to get it out the masses so that they can see it!rnrnTake care,rnKathyrnMobile Media Marketing The Wave of The Future
