Internet Video Marketing Tips

There are some tricks to good internet video marketing and having it rank high on the charts. The first thing you want to do before you make your video is do a little keyword research. After all don’t you want people to see your effort? If you make a video with some specific keywords in the title and through out the description, Google will like it.

Remember You Tube is owned by Google and is a gigantic search engine, the third largest in the world, and Google likes good content to offer their customers when searching for something. Your description has a lot to do with that along with your keywords.

To make a good video, I suggest getting a Flip Cam. They are inexpensive and you can up load to your computer fast and easy. Of course you can use whatever you like, I like a flip cam because the format is right for You Tube. Other videos might have to be formatted different (size etc.) It saves you time and aggravation. Think about what the video is going to be about . Identify a need and address it and then offer a solution. You want to have good lighting in your video so people can see you. When doing internet video marketing just be yourself!

That is what people want to see, the real you not some fake act. If you don’t like the first one you made just delete it and do it again. You can’t mess it up. The whole reason for internet video marketing is to personally brand yourself. When people can see you and here you and see your gestures they start feeling more at home with you and get to know you believe it or not.

After you are done simply up load to your computer and then up load onto You Tube where you can do some more magic by writing a good description with related keywords.

Internet video marketing is free and can give you massive exposure for years to come. It can help you leverage your business in a big way. Make a list of all the main video sites and up load to as many as you like for maximum exposure. Try to keep you’re video around 3 to 5 min. long. The longest most places will give you is 10 min.

So in conclusion just prepare before you shoot. Sometimes you will have the urge to go make a quick video on some subject. Go do it while it’s fresh and you can find the keywords to relate to it after wards. Just be yourself and do it over and over and you will start to like it. If you want to make it online , really make it, you need good internet video marketing to help pull it all together and help people relate to you. A email is nice, a email with a picture is nicer but a video is the best. The 5 minutes you spend making that video could pull in traffic, FREE traffic for years to come. It is an awesome free advertising tool of the 21st century so take advantage of it.

How to Make Money Online With YouTube and Video Marketing

Did you know you can bring in some bucks by strategically using YouTube? Here are some tips and pointers on how to make money online creating videos and putting them up on YouTube.

Pick your niche

Just like any other type of marketing or list building efforts, you have to pick a pick a niche. That is the first step.

Select keywords

Next you have to select your keywords. You will want to have several keywords…you don’t want to build a series of videos just around one or two words, right? So find a bunch…some short, some long-tail…that fit your niche. Make sure when you are starting out that you pick keywords that aren’t too competitive or finding your video will be like finding a needle in a haystack.

Create a video

Once you have your niche and your keywords, you create one video that revolves around you main keyword.

One of your goals is to get people to subscribe to you YouTube channel, so you can actually have a request at the end of the video asking people to subscribe. This can either be you actually saying the words or by having text at the end that instructs the viewer how to subscribe and why.

Put your domain within your video! You want to drive traffic to your squeeze page, so include that URL in your video and a lot of people who watch your video will go there and opt-in.

Start with one video and then you can repeat the entire process after you are done. 

Upload the video

Upload your video to YouTube and now you are going to use your keywords in your title, your description and your tags. A lot of people forget this step and it is one of the keys to successful video marketing.

Another thing people often overlook is the thumbnail. The title and the pictures are the first things that viewers look at-they use them to decide if they are going to open the video or not. So if your thumbnail is not the image, you will have fewer people looking at your video. Make both your title and thumbnail exciting, and appropriate, you will have better clicks.

More traffic

Now it is time to get even more views–you can sponsor your video to a related video that is already getting a lot of views. To do this, search for YouTube videos that relate to one of your main keywords. Find some that are getting a lot of views and make a video response that has your video information in it. This allows you to leverage off that successful video’s traffic.

When people leave comments to your video you want to be sure to comment back. Google actually looks at your comments so when you are writing your responses try to add some keywords in.

Use social media like Twitter and Facebook to get traffic to your video. Also be sure to use social bookmarking sites…that will increase your traffic, too.

So now you have your video and lots of traffic…and you are building a list through your squeeze page. Now you can promote products, either your own or someone else’s to your list and that is how to make money online with YouTube video marketing!
