Hello warriors,
First, I don't know whether or not this is the right place to post my question so please correct me if I'm wrong.
Ok, so I create video tutorials (the sort of courses that can be found on Udemy and similar platforms). Now I need tips for promoting those tutorials. I've been advised to:
1. Incorporate motion graphics with my presentations.
2. Create an opener logo.
3. Engage talking head videos at least in the introduction.
I totally agree with points 1 and 2, but does creating a video of myself explaining things to the audience would make a difference that deserves the effort? I currently use PowerPoint or Keynote for the presentation and record my screen while explaining the concepts and doing the labs.
I need your advise. And again sorry if this is not the right place ask.
Thanks a lot.

    Hi there,

    I would say that creating talking head recordings in the introduction makes the video a lot more engaging for the audience. It obviously won't improve the quality of the content but it will make it more personal and engaging for the students. It brings a human element to the video and creates a more personal experience for the student. It also makes the recording seem more professional.

    So I'd say yes, it's worth the effort.

    I hope this helps

    I agree that putting yourself on screen, at least in the introduction, is a good idea. I've seen many videos that have a small picture of the presenter in one corner of the screen throughout the video, but I don't think it's really necessary.

    If you are trying to sell your stuff through video marketing, you don't have to show your face if really don't want to.

    But people like to buy from people (that they know like and trust).

    This marketing business is a people business.

    Your conversions will be higher with you in the picture.

    But you can still get away with not showing your face if you offer a lot of value and come from a genuine place in your heart.

      Thank you Rory for your comment. Actually I don't sell anything through the videos. They are educational material that aims at driving in high traffic to profit from Adsense.

    It's not necessary. Also it's not always to be you if you plan to do it. You can hire a presenter for that. It will give a personal touch and some advantages, but it can also put disadvantages for you. Why? Because people judge the book by its cover. So make sure the face in your talking head video is what people will love to see.

    You can also use FastStone Capture to record your screen. It is really easy to use and has a lot of customization options.
    You have to increase your channel authority then your video will reach the top. Here keywords selection, title, and description are really important issues.
    Thanks, Mytechgoal.

    What are you teaching in your video tutorials?

    Have you tried Udemy and the other similar platforms and let them do the marketing?

    Create a Youtube channel with similar content, offering value in the videos. At the end of each, have an end card that sends people to an email capture page with the promise of a video with high value.

    Make the video "unlisted" on Youtube. When people give you their email address, have your autoresponder send them a link to the unlisted Youtube video. Use your autoresponder to follow up and sell your entire course.

    Depending on the niche, you may be able to sell your course using affiliate platforms like JVZoo and WarriorPlus. It does take some time and effort to build an affiliate base, but a good way to sell is to leverage the audience of others.

    Another possibility is to team up with an experienced marketer where they get the JVs/affiliates and you produce the content. You'll need good quality content as well as be relevant to their network.

    To get started, maybe pay affiliates 100% on the front end, then offer PLR/resale rights on the back end?

    You can also try paying for clicks through Youtube and Facebook, but you'll need a decent budget to test and learn, as well as an investment in time to educate yourself.

    There's no rules I'm aware of that say you can't try all of them...Udemy, Skillshare, Youtube, PPC and affiliate platforms.

      An excellent reply!
      I am really grateful for you invaluable tips, I will make sure I follow them as hard as I can.
      About my niche, well I teach programming and scripting. My first series of videos is about web scraping (how to extract unstructured data from arbitrary web pages and store them in a structured format like a database or even an Excel file).
      Thanks again and have a wonderful day.
