This is a short video ad I created with the Content Samurai online video maker (you can read about that here).
As you can see from the title, it’s about how to get free traffic to your website.
So why have I included this video on this website?
Table of Contents
- 1 1. Adding the video here will help it rank a bit better on YouTube.
- 2 2. It’s more content for my YouTube channel.
- 3 3. The video will drive traffic to the page on YouTube that hosts the video, so more people will click on the link in my video description.
- 4 4. Since the video was specifically created as an ad, I can also display it as an ad on the YouTube network.
- 5 5. The video is designed to drive traffic to a squeeze page (that offers a free ebook on how to get free traffic).
- 6 6. I also get to showcase the kind of videos that can be created with Content Samurai.
- 7 7. I get to show you that Content Samurai can create quality videos that you can use to drive free traffic to your website, squeeze pages or wherever.
1. Adding the video here will help it rank a bit better on YouTube.
2. It’s more content for my YouTube channel.
There’s a chance that anyone who watches one of my other videos will end up watching this one too. And vice-versa.
The more content on my YouTube channel, the more eyeballs will see my videos and the more exposure my squeeze pages (to build my list) and affiliate offers (to earn direct commissions) will get.
This is a common tactic used by YouTube marketers to drive free traffic to their offers, promotions and websites.
4. Since the video was specifically created as an ad, I can also display it as an ad on the YouTube network.
I could have it appear as a skippable ad in front of someone else’s video or it could appear at the top of the list when someone searches for a related term.
It could also appear at he top of the Recommended Videos list at the right of any page on YouTube. And advertising on YouTube is even cheaper than on Facebook.
5. The video is designed to drive traffic to a squeeze page (that offers a free ebook on how to get free traffic).
Why would I do that?
Because once someone gets added to her mailing list, they’re tagged with my affiliate ID. And if they buy anything from her in the future, I get the commission.
Ok, I lose out on adding a subscriber to my own mailing list but because she has a huge number of products she’s created and exposes her list to, I’m happy to trade not getting an email address for potentially earning big commissions.
6. I also get to showcase the kind of videos that can be created with Content Samurai.
My affiliate link for it is at the bottom of my video description on YouTube as another potential way of earning from this video.
7. I get to show you that Content Samurai can create quality videos that you can use to drive free traffic to your website, squeeze pages or wherever.
And that you can use video very effectively as a way of building your own email list.

I hope I’ve shown you some of the possibilities that creating your own videos can bring to your online business. And that using an online video maker like Content Samurai means you don’t have to appear on camera, have your own studio or even talk on a video for it to look professional. You have no excuse now not to use video in your business!
