I’m Starting to Like Video

Written by Ryan Ambrose  · August 4, 2008

I must tell you, I’m really starting to like making digital videos. I’ve learned a lot about how to do this from WebVideoUniversity.com, and if you have the money, you should look into taking the complete course there for yourself. The information is invaluable.

Once you know what you’re doing, making digital videos isn’t at all hard. Time-consuming, yes, but not hard. And while I’m not going to replace my other efforts with video, I’m most certainly going to start adding video marketing to promote my sites and projects now. They’re just plain fun, and with some work, effective besides.

Granted, making fancy and beautiful videos is more expensive than say, a viral ebook. However, getting what you need to do it isn’t so hard or costly as you might think. All sorts of stock clips, music, equipment and voiceovers are available, and it still won’t set you back thousands to get started unless you want to buy everything on the high end.

Just to warn you though. If you use stock footage, voiceovers, music, or other things of this sort in your videos, make sure you understand the extent of the licensing first.

So, what can you do with videos?

  • Drive traffic by putting them on YouTube. It’s within their Terms of Service to do this, as long as you meet the restrictions on things like copyrights.

  • Put them on top of your sales letter page to sell your products or services. You can see an example of this on the Butterfly Marketing web site.

  • Bundle how-to videos with your ebooks or software products! If you think demonstrating something is the best way to go, make a video manual and add value to your products that way.

Internet Marketing is trending towards video. While I’ve made sales and opt-ins without it, I’m certainly not going to overlook its potential now that I can make them for myself.

    Video is really taking off – that’s for sure. I’ve been marketing online using videos since 2004 and let me tell you, back then people looked at me cross-eyed when I said that video was going to be all over the Internet. It’s not too late though – still a TON of opportunities to make money with video… and there will be for a very, very long time!

    The way I look at it is that video has a higher perceived value then ebooks for example.
    People are always trying to get the most for their money. A few years ago pdf was king but I’m starting to see a trend where audio and video are really taking off.

    This means that we as publishers have to find a way to deliver our products in the highest perceived value package possible.

    I know that my next project will definitely be delivered in video form.

    Good luck,
    Nathan Reed

    I’ve heard quite a lot about it too and how it’s driving insane traffic overnight but it somehow sounds too technical for me to start at this moment.

    I keep hearing about video being the “big thing” for the web, but I really dislike it. I would very much rather read articles and blogs or information than have to turn up my speakers and wait for someone to say it all.

    Waken,

    I know other people who feel the same way, but apparently a lot of people love online video.
