Using Video Marketing to Drive Website Traffic

If you’re looking to get your website seen, one of the best techniques you can use to drive traffic is video marketing.

It’s one of the most engaging, influential, and potentially profitable forms of marketing today.

There is no cap on the amount of videos you can do if you have the time and put in the effort.

This doesn’t mean post a bunch of videos just to be posting videos, but it does mean that if you are doing videos that are informative and value packed people will respond.

Video marketing has the ability to capture people’s attention and allows you the luxury to establish authority like no other form of marketing.

People get to actually see you in the flesh and hear you speak about your product or service.

This one traffic source has been the bread and butter for many successful online businesses today.

Benefits of Video Marketing

Video Marketing provides an number of benefits to improve your business or promote your products or services.

Some benefits include:

  • Allowing you to highlight your products and services in an informative and entertaining way to viewers.
  • Increase blog traffic by driving YouTube video traffic to your blog.
  • Visitors are more likely to watch a 2-5 minute video then read an entire blog post.
  • Video allows you more flexibility in conveying your message compared to writing a blog post.
  • Videos allow you the opportunity to create fresh content more rapidly.
  • Videos rank high in the search engines.
  • Videos add diversity and a breath of fresh air to your content.
  • The amount of traffic can be endless and best of all once the video is done it does the work for you over and over again.

When it comes to video marketing you must take action.

It may be intimidating at first to get up and create your videos, but with practice you become better and more comfortable.

The main thing is just doing them.

A lot of times people let many other factors deter them from doing video marketing and never gain the courage to do it at all.

They come up with excuses of why they can’t post a video like “my hair isn’t right, I don’t know what to say, people aren’t going to like them, I’m not good enough.”

You must not let anything stop you from doing your videos.

Video marketing can be an important asset to your online business.

Do what you need to do to get over any fears you may have and you will quickly learn the benefits of remaining consistent with your efforts when you see the traffic it can bring over time.

I’ve done videos months ago that still bring in traffic daily to my blog.

If you don’t want to submit your videos to multiple sites just start with the biggest, YouTube.

YouTube gets an enormous amount of visitors each day.

You should find your niche and redirect some of that traffic to your blog or website through video marketing.

Facebook is also an awesome resource to use because videos can quickly go viral with the help of your Facebook friends.

Your videos can easily get shared and you can also post your videos to different groups associated with your niche.

Video marketing should definitely be added to your repertoire if you want to improve success in your business.

Your videos don’t have to be extravagant, but make sure they are genuine and informative.

If done correctly video marketing can be the only source you need to get the word out about your business.

Best Wishes!

Increase Traffic Using Video

If you don’t know by now Youtube is an AWESOME resource that can be used to increase traffic to your website.

It can be used to drive tons of targeted and free traffic too if used properly.

If you are not using Youtube as a source to increase traffic then you are definitely missing out on another way to generate leads and increase your presence on the web.

Learning how to upload, market, and provide video content will quickly give you another vehicle to market yourself properly, giving you a strong foundation.

If you want your business to be up and running for the long run here are some strategies that can be used to increase traffic to your site using videos:

Ways to Increase Traffic

1) Make Consistent Video Content

Making consistent video content will increase your subscriber list on Youtube.

People will literally be waiting to see your videos and learn from you.

Make sure your videos are filled with genuine and quality content.

Your objective is to create raving fans and fans want content.

You won’t have to do much promoting from there and you also have an opportunity for your videos to go viral once uploaded.

People will share or suggest that their friends check out your videos if they are interesting.

If you have an online business you should be using videos to promote your content and Youtube should be one of your marketing venues.

2) Upload to Facebook

You can combine your efforts of video marketing by uploading your Youtube videos to your Facebook page.

This gives another opportunity for your videos to be seen and shared by people.

Both of these strategies are free and can be highly effective and lucrative over a long period of time.

Once again consistency is important.

People love to see content and they love to see something from you daily or at least frequently.

Your friends and family can help promote your content and if you have a little money to spend you can learn how to market your content with Facebook ads.

If you’re not using Facebook to promote your business then you are missing out.

3) Share with your List

If you have an email list, which you should, you can share your videos with your list.

Your list will enjoy this because they get a chance to see you in the flesh.

And if you are keeping your videos within the 2-5 min range people are more likely to watch the entire video.

It doesn’t take up much of their time and they can check it out on the go.

This method is very effective with improving your relationship with your list and increasing sales.

You can also redirect them to your website, which can also increase traffic and build your brand.

These strategies are a great way to increase traffic to your website/blog.

Your goal should be to upload one video a day with content pertaining to your niche.

Most people are afraid of doing videos because they are afraid of making a mistake, but if you remain consistent you will get better.

Your objective is to get traffic flowing through all resources.

By combining your efforts you can get a steady flow and increase traffic across the board.

Best Wishes!

3 Ways to Generate Traffic via Youtube

Traffic is the lifeblood of any online business. If you want to make money online once you have your business setup the only way to make money is by generating traffic.

Now there are loads of different ways to get traffic to your website or offer, but for the sake of this article the focus will be on Youtube.

If you are not camera shy or afraid of doing videos Youtube is a great way to get people in front of what you want them to see.

It’s the second most visited search engine in the world behind Google. Meaning…people are watching and looking for information by the flocks.

When I first started doing Youtube videos I was nervous and figured my videos were not that great.

And to this day I think that, but I’ve made countless friends from my Youtube videos and even sales.

And it was all free!!!

Uploading videos to Youtube is an easy way to show people who you really are instead of just allowing them to read your blog posts or see your offer.

You give them a reason to like or dislike you, but more importantly to see who you truly are in the flesh, which helps in building that relationship with them.

One of the main issues I had when coming up with Youtube content was ideas on what videos to create.

Hopefully, this post will help you get over that hump and get you started with great Youtube content as soon as today.

The idea behind these videos are to show your expertise or knowledge on a particular topic.

Let’s get started on the first video you can create:

1) Talking on a Particular Topic

This is the easiest and most basic of the three, but very effective in getting your point across. You have probably comes across videos like these online. All it takes is a camera, a topic, and the ability to upload the video to Youtube. The only time required is how long it takes to do the video and however much time is takes to upload it. You usually want these videos to be in between 2-5 minutes so people don’t lose interest. Be precise and to the point with your thoughts or ideas on your topic or niche.

2) Doing “How-to” Videos

“How-to” videos do very well on Youtube because people enjoy being able to actually learn how to do something. As stated earlier it’s the second largest search engine around and people are usually looking to figure out solutions to a problem they are having. If you are comfortable with doing how to videos you can easily generate traffic using this method. You can demonstrate these videos yourself or you can do a presentation using pictures. People enjoy looking for ways to do things on their own and you can be that gap for them using this method. Software like screencast o matic (http://www.screencast-o-matic.com), camstudio (http://www.camstudio.org), or camtasia (http://www.techsmith.com) can be used to create these videos. You may need to learn how to edit, but practice makes progress.

3) Interviewing an Expert

Lastly, you can interview an expert. This method is awesome because you don’t necessarily have to know much about the topic, but just knowing the right questions to ask the expert. This in turn increases your credibility with your viewers. It also shows that you associate yourself with like-minded people and have the ability to get top notch interviews.

Other benefits include getting traffic from the interviewers fans. Most people you are interviewing will probably let their viewers know that you will be interviewing them and will probably invite them to listen to the interview. This helps boost you up a bit because they feel like you are an expert as well. You get high-quality content without really having to put in much work. And the traffic you get will be highly targeted traffic, which is generally what you want.

Begin today to put any of these three methods to use. Work on trying all three and become an expert in your niche or field of work and see how quickly you can boost your traffic all for free.
