Alright, I am letting out a cool "video marketing" secret of mine. People are charging for this !!

109 replies
I have bought a few WSOs about video marketing recently and their sales page focus on how to do this...

This "secret" is not really a secret because Google keeps an open book about this... they are encouraging webmasters to do this actually!



You see in the above screenshot I got a video result from one of the pages in my blog.

The nearby YouTube video is also mine but by clicking the first result the user lands on my site.

All you have to do is install the FLV embed plugin and upload your video in your own server and embed it in your blog's page. Then use the video sitemap feature in the FLV embed plugin to create a video sitemap like mine:

http://bikeadvice.in/videofeed.xml

Submit the video sitemap to Google webmaster tools and within a few days your videos will get indexed.

Go ahead and try it.

Refer to my previous post in WF for more info:

http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...heres-how.html

- Deepak Raj

Update: A warrior tried this method after reading this thread and here's the results he got...





Hope that gives you some more proof that it works. So start taking action immediately

      Cool video tip. Does it suck a lot of bandwidth hosting it yourself?

      Also, that Honda bike actually looks pretty cool ... but, I can't think of anyone I know that's into motorcycles that would ride one called a "Unicorn Dazzler" ... lol

      Has kind of a "Lisa Frank" sound to it.

          I have hosted it on S3 but I feel it is getting costly! Before adding videos my usual cost is $10/mo s3 but last bill I paid was $16. Do you have any alternate video hosting ideas?

            Actually, you must be serving the video quite a bit to cost $16 -- I use s3 for everything because it is robust enough to handle any spikes in traffic without crashing or buffering... And I have always found it to be inexpensive compared to the amount of $ I make off of the videos served... Are your videos bringing in $ for you?

              I am not selling anything in the video. I can't sell anything in the blog. Adsense is the only revenue source right now because this market is young.

              But the traffic is high. That page alone got 2000 unique visitors last month. I get 7000 to 8000 uv per day to this blog.

              Seriously looking for video hosting alternatives.

            I understand saving or cutting expenses is never ending goal... but your are promoting "making $1,000 / day with Videomarketing" ... so why is a $6 added expense this concerning?

              I try to keep the expenses of each project below its profit level.

              It is not about how much I am able to spend overall... its about how much I can spend for this particular project. I treat each project as a separate business venture.

              Last month I paid $38 for S3 hosting for this project. I can spend upto $100 per month for this. And I already pay $50/month for VPS hosting.

              If I keep adding more videos, I may end up paying $200+ per month which may not be feasible - for this project.

              1 video gets 10,000+ views easily from my blog. If 1 video is 5 MB, then it is 50 GB of bandwidth just like that! That's $7.5 just to serve 1 video

              If I am selling something in that video, then that's a whole different story!

              Hope you got my point.

        I was wondering the same thing; about the amount of bandwidth.

        How much traffic do you receive from the above example, and what are the costs involved?

    I looked at your site, why dont you use the video to try and up your optins? You could play a few seconds of the video for them and get them to optin to see the full video or something... then you can try to sell them all sorts of stuff... Also, are there no affiliate offers you could promote thru CJ that would interest motorcycle enthusiasts? I think you just need to monetize the site better... Your adsense was showing a chevrolet ad and your other banners were for delta and shopify - so you cant be making much from that... Figure out what you can sell them... Maybe its tattoos? Or maybe its tshirts and stuff like Harley Davidson people like to buy... I would find something for them...

      The site get 99% traffic from India and no one has an affiliate program serving India and indian consumers. The market is young as I said. Got a good foundation. Will help a lot in future when the US trend catches up here.

    Here's another tip for you all who are using articles.

    Take each one of your articles and make a video of yourself talking about that subject and then upload it to YouTube.

    People are more likely to click on a video of yours then an article.

    So take each article, make a video out of it, upload it to YouTube, and then watch how you get some free traffic to it and to your link that you will need to add to your video.

    This is great advice, but the problem is that it drains bandwidth. Yeah, and bandwidth is max expensive. Those web hosting companies that offer seven terabytes of bandwidth per month - they will shut you down as soon as you hit seven gigs.

      I talked with hostgator about this and they said they are ok with me uploading videos. Though it may not be as fast as Amazon s3... it will do OK for the time being.

      They say that inodes is the only thing they look into in terms of usage. If you hit 100,000 inodes, they want you to go to dedicated server.

        OK I maybe am being a tad stupid here, but if you are adding a video embed URL into the plug-in and, for whatever reason, do not want it on your server, why not host the video on Youtube? I see that it works with a youtube URL in the FAQ on the plug-in site as copied here:

        How can I embed a video from YouTube?
        Use the YouTube URL as the file argument when using the embed tags, e.g. [flv:YOUTUBE URL HERE 480 360]

        If you dont have the video file actually in your site and you can host it elsewhere, what is the difference between sticking it on Amazon s3 or on Youtube?

      [flv:video-URL poster-image-URL width height] - use this syntax when embedding videos.

      Include the image URL and you will be fine. But google does not take your image URL most of the time. They take a shot from inside the video themselves like YouTube. Perhaps they are preventing web masters from possible misleading of users.

          Deciding where to compete is half your success

          No one is applying this method in my niche as well!

          This method works best when you embed the video into a page which is already ranking well.

    - Deepak Raj
    This is the "real" tip .. 1st recognize that there
    are very few true "secrets" and then stop looking
    for one before you create a product and sell it.

    Does Harvard have any "secrets"? Or do they simply
    take information that is publicly available in any
    FREE library and consolidate / organize and then
    teach it?

    Think about it .. then go do the same. You can create
    a "quality education" like Harvard does and then sell
    it for a hefty profit (like Harvard does).

    P.S. Ever hear anyone complain because Harvard
    taught them the same math used everywhere else?

      Learning math and applying said math creatively. One way you're just a math geek, the other you're Bill Gates.

      So yeah, its a good tip.

    Wisdom + Persistence = Change in Behavior

    Learning = Change in Behavior

    Harvard enables transformation, in other words changes the behaviour of students. That's why they charge so much.

      Funnily enough, my college says the exact same thing - exact same example. Though they don't charge nearly the same thing! LOL

        It will not work with those.

        I am not talking about video distribution. I am talking about hosting your own videos and getting it ranked.

        The traffic will come to your blog's page... not the video sharing site.

          Deepak,

          you can use something like Amazon S3 and then embed it on your site, use the google video sitemap WordPress Pluging I mentioned.

          As you can see from the examples I gave above is exactly what I have been doing to get first page rankings for most of my products I am promoting.

        It works only with wordpress right now. If you want to do it for a static page then you have to create your own sitemap. You can find more info about it in Google's video sitemap guidelines.

        Well, good news, I am just talking with the developer now, and are about to release a product that will do just that - work on any site (WP, Static, Joomla - CMS etc), it will upload the .xml file to their server, all you need to do is add it in to your google webmaster tools.

    "People are charging for this!!"

    Hell yes we are! :-)

    Business owners don't have the time, manpower or know-how to do this. They just want the ROI.

    With 200-300 videos you can SLAY the competition. This is a great tactic but must be followed up with BM's and links from articles to make it sticky

    I am trying to do this and failing. I cant seem to get the video embedded on the page. The fields in the plug in are all in techno-speak and there are no clear instructions within the plug in on the plug in page and is therefore useless. Seems that unless you are very flash savvy, this is a non starter.

    The problems started when the file with my video in (loads of flies in a folder after I converted to .flv) was too large to upload using the media upload thingy in wordpress. So I uploaded it with ftp to the domain root. Now I can not figure out how to put the video on the page and how to set up the complicated plug in settings. I am lost. Can anyone help please?

      @Paleochora,

      I presume you are meaning the google video sitemap plugin? If so, then you need to install one of the following:

      1) I use a free video embed plugin called "Flash Video Player" http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/flash-video-player

      1a) Or you can use Easy Video Player (which is a paid solution)

      2) Then you can use short cut code like:

      Code:
      [flashvideo file=http://video.yoursite.com/test.mp4 image=http://www.youtsite.com/images/test.jpg /]
      Then the plugin will pick up you are using flash video player and you should all be good, then go into the google video plugin settings and re-create the video sitemap and then go ping it..and you're done.

      Hope that helps.

      Carl

      When you use this technique will it work best on a keyword with low searches.

      if your pages are indexed and ranks well, then a video on that page will result in the video getting indexed very fast. if ur pages don't have good ranking then your videos will take long time to be indexed. some time even a month.

        Yes, I did not build backlinks and I ranked it

        The thing that ranks is the page of the blog, not the video per se.

        So if you are building backlinks at all, u do it for the blog post and not the video.

        This works extremely well for pages which are ranking well already.

        Say for example a page/post in ur blog is in no.12 position in the serps. Adding a video to the page will bring it to may be less than no.5 because ur competitors don't have videos on their pages. The numbers are very vague, but u get the idea.

        Videos are considered high value content (both in terms of bandwidth and effort of making) and google gives extra importance to ur page.

        And above all... people are more likely to click on a no.5 result with a thumbnail of the video than a no.2 result
