FREE VIDEO TRAINING
Tip #1 Get Some Training:

You will need to know how to do on-page  optimization of  your video content and how to pick a great key word with low competition.I have provided some additional free training for you. CLICK HERE

Tip #2 Face You Fear:

You might be scared at first to start your video marketing but I think you will find that after a little practice and maybe as few as 10 videos later you will begin to relax. That’s when it gets to be really fun to produce videos.

I have seen some amazing transformations by other timid internet marketers. Their first videos have no eye contact and they are barely audible. After a few videos they bloom in front of the camera! The transformation is truly amazing.  When you begin to relax in your videos it translates into being authentic. Authenticity is a great way to attract people to you and start building rapport.

You will also find that it will definitely increase your lead flow.  You are providing entertainment and information that your audience is looking for. If you provide good content in your video marketing services on a consistent basis you will build your following.

The best antidote for your fear is to face it head on. Here it is a year later and now I’m really comfortable in front of the camera. I would never have guessed it was possible. That’s why I know you can do this too, so get started.

Tip #3 You Don’t Need Expensive Equipment:

You don’t need a bunch of fancy gear to get started. Some people simply use their smart phone or the camera on their computer.
I started doing my video marketing with a flip camera that cost less than $100. I recently did some research and found a very cheap way to do my lighting and my sound. I also use a free editing program that came with my PC computer for my video marketing company.
There are many ways to get started so believe me when I tell you don’t have to break the bank.

You Tube is free so it doesn’t cost anything to post videos there and you can post as many as you like. You can also put links on your channel back to your blog, Facebook, Twitter, Google +. In fact Google + has a tab for your You Tube Channel.  Did I mention that Google owns You Tube.

Tip #4 Get Started:

Ok so now you have some training, you’ve faced your fear and you can use your smart phone or your computer to produce videos. The next thing to do is get started. The sooner you start the better. You will still be ahead of the curve since You Tube is now building steam so there’s plenty of opportunities to find your target market and build your fan base. The fact that all of this ties back into Google+ is another huge benefit. Google is still King and it’s good to utilize these social platforms Google is developing.

Tip #5  Have Fun!

You might even surprise yourself at how bold you become in your videos. If you do enough videos you will break out of your shell! You just have to take that first step and face your fear of the camera.

Another benefit is the ability to break down barriers with your target market. Nothing does this better than a video. It’s  fun to have someone opt into your sales funnel after watching your video. Call them!  The reaction I get is awesome. They are so shocked that I called them especially since they just watched my video. Your conversion rates will go up with this type of interaction.

Tips #6 Enjoy your celebrity:
It may come as a surprise to you that others actually are looking for the valuable content you will be sharing in your marketing videos.
You can build a great fan base this way and as I said earlier it makes attraction marketing even easier when your target audience can see you and hear your voice.
Then when you call your leads they surprised that you the person they just watched on You Tube actually took the time to call and connect with them.
This makes video marketing such fun! You are viewed as a celebrity because you are in a video!
Tip #7 The very best tip:

SEO Search Engine Optimization = Higher Rankings

Content with video has a 50% better chance for ranking. This alone is a great reason to start making videos. Your content will be ranked higher and found faster by your target marketi and this in turn will increase your business. You’ll also enjoy a higher rate for conversions.

You can even put video in the subject line of your email and this alone can increase open rates for your email broadcasts.

Some autoresponders won’t allow videos to be sent directly so here’s what you do instead. Take a snapshot of your video and put the link in the image so when someone clicks on it they will be taken to your video.

You can be successful!

You have a unique voice.  You will find your audience.

You will connect with just the right people and you will have a great time doing it. Take the first step.

I hope these tips were helpful and I hope they inspired you to take a leap of faith and try something new if you haven’t already done this.
Are you doing video?  If not , what’s holding you back?

Is it fear of the camera? Or is it that you think you need fancy equipment before you can start? Share your thoughts and experiences here.
