Videos bring in lots of traffic!

by JohnATX 20 replies
Old and dry niches can be brought back to life simply by creating videos showing viewers how to do something or improve on it.

Short and sweet videos that don't take hardly any effort to make. You can literally send traffic to anywhere you want using videos.

I have seen traffic results from just 10 videos all under 1 minute and it is amazing. It's a super way to sell affiliate products as well as build a list quickly that would ultimately grow forever because your videos will always get traffic and there are a lot of video sites now days.

As someone who has seen the results of video marketing (the right way) I encourage anyone with this ability to go out and make some videos. Once you get it all figured out and working for you, you'll be hooked!

Here's an example of what I'm talking about. This a video that me and a friend made for a video community forum that we're trying to get going.

      I love video marketing and the fact that it can work really well just makes it worth spending the time enjoying

          Will the average video editor allow you to play movies backwards like that? (I've been thinking about purchasing "Sony Vegas").

            We are using Adobe Premiere 6.0 Kinda old version but works as far as making reverse videos.

            Once you have everything set up, it's so easy to make videos and have fun with them AND you can direct traffic to websites without ever worrying about SEO.

            We were walking backwards as best as we could so it looked like were walking forward in reverse but it's a lot harder than it seems so we always ended up with a goofy looking walk, haha.

                      Yes videos do convert to sales if you use them properly and are relative to the rest of the information you have in your specific Niche.

                      Interesting video btw.

                        This video will not bring in TARGETED TRAFFIC for the IM niche.

                        Consider having videos that are related to the niche and then you will sure have a winner at hands.

                          I don't see any point how this video can bring targeted and useful traffic to IM...

                            If the youtube traffic is not targetted you could get 50k visitors and not convert
                            a single one of them.

                            However, if you optimize your video title, that should eliminate most of that unwanted
                            traffic. Also to convert, you should provide something of value to the
                            viewer. If you provide a gem or let viewers in on a secret or tip that
                            helps them get further along in their marketing efforts, money making
                            attempts or whatever it may be, they will watch the video through and it
                            will become easier to convert them. Your videos have to provide value and
                            you have to be sincere in your message.

                            Just my two cents!

            I'm using Sony Vegas now after pottering around with Movie Maker initially and I find it's well worth the investment.

            Just a lot more flexibility and control.

              Sony Vegas Movie Studio editing software is an excellent move from Movie Maker.

              They just released version 9 and cut the price to $54 bucks for a version that will create terrific online video. (The HD capable version is a bit more.)

              You get a fully functioning 30-day free trial - they have some nifty free video tutorials on Sony's support area.

              Plus the software comes with Show Me Tutorials, that literally walk you through the things you need to now - not in a video, but interactively, right in the software itself.

              Very cool.

                videos are great for selling . beats going through all that copy sometimes.
                if you keep it engaging, provide quality info and have a call to action it can convert well.

    You can reverse video using open source software VirtualDub and also AVIsynth, and edit it in Windows Movie Maker.

    If anyone is interested in exactly how... I can make a video!

    Look at all of the post on something that everyone know about already. I do not mean that in a rude way, actually I am trying to point out that Mr JohnATX is very correct with the above statement. I think he "hit the nail on the head" and should be commended for such.
