Review on Video Marketing on your blogWhen thinking of video marketing, I believe that many people have one word in mind: YouTube. They look for videos that correspond to their needs, either for learning something, or to use it for promotion.
What if you could do your own videos? No need for Hollywood special effects. I read some time ago that nowadays, people look for videos that are good, informative, and where they can relate. This means that any video you do yourself could fit the bill.
There are 3 types of videos:
1) Live videos.
2) Images and music.
3) Screencast videos.
The first type is the scariest. Most people do not feel comfortable doing it. However, if you feel you could do it, don't worry about cost at first. If you have a webcam on your laptop, you can start with that.
The 2nd type, I have never done myself. This is popular, since it doesn't ask for you to record your voice. Free software like Windows Live Movie Maker allows you to easily create that type of video.
The 3rd type is what I do the most. I use screenr.com an online tool to record a video, where we see what's happening on the screen while we hear my voice describing it.
Fortunately, screenr.com is free. There's a limit of 5 minutes, but it's more than enough in most cases. And, the finished video can be saved on your PC as an MP4, ready to see on the iPhone or iPad. One click and you publish the video on YouTube.
One last thing I want to mention is that, instead of getting traffic to your YouTube channel, draw it to your blog. You can easily add the YouTube embed code in a blog post. At least, you can do that on a self hosted WordPress blog. That's what I do. I don't know if it's possible on a Wordpress.com or Blogger blog.
I just added a new page on my blog to show all my videos in an organized fashion. Click here to take a look. In the next few days, I will have my more than 100 videos featured there.
