If you’re neglecting video marketing when promoting your business, offers, squeeze pages and landing pages, then it’s time to think again! Want to know how to build an email list the fast way? Use the power of viral video marketing!
I mentioned in my Content Samurai review that ranking videos in the search engines is far easier to do than ranking websites with all the SEO (Search Engine Optimization) headaches that go with that.
“Websites” in this context also means landing pages and squeeze pages which are frequently hosted on their own domains rather than being pages on a pre-existing domain.
If you thought creating appealing videos was too time-consuming, required a mini-studio or you simply don’t want to appear on camera yourself, then Content Samurai solves that problem for you.
Traffic from videos is some of the easiest and most targeted you’ll be able to get. And it’s all free.
Upload your videos to YouTube and it will market the videos for you.
Here’s a video I created in Content Samurai to advertise the newsletter for this site showing some of these techniques in action:
Take the time to write good video titles and descriptions and select the right tags for your videos, and they can rank highly on Page 1 of Google for your keywords. Google owns YouTube after all!
75% of businesses who have done web video marketing report that those videos have been well worth the time and cost of production. And they’ve seen a substantial increase in the amount of organic traffic reaching their sites from them.
People are visual by nature. A picture is worth a thousand words, as they say. And 93% of businesses who make YouTube videos have said that they have helped people to better understand their services and products.
