Superb Thoughts On Why All Bloggers Should Distribute Videos

What if I told you there was a way you could increase traffic to your website, increase the amount of time visitors stay, increase your conversion rates, and enhance your relationship with your audience – all for free? You’d probably think I was trying to sell you the latest “All cash – no work – get rich quick” internet marketing scheme.

But I’m serious. Video marketing is really one of the most powerful techniques in online marketing. Just consider that YouTube gets billions — that’s right, billions — of searches every day and this should tell you something by itself. (In fact, most people don’t realize it, but YouTube is the second most-popular search site on the internet.)

Here are just a few of the many benefits of incorporating video into your sites:

• Boost conversion for sales pages. We’re all used to seeing those longform sales letters, but they may be confined to the history books as the top Internet marketers are pushing their profits by using video.

• Elevate your site visits. When you publicize your website or blog link through your videos, and distribute those videos to any (or preferably ALL) of the best of the video sharing sites, you’ll see an increase in traffic as people come to your website in search of more quality information.

• Increase in connection. There is nothing like the connection that you can form when people actually hear your voice and look directly at you, even if virtually and this is much more powerful than the written word. After all, we are told by relationship experts that up to 80% of all communication is derived from the way that you speak, your facial expressions and your body language and is nonverbal. You don’t allow your audience access to this kind of communication and can expect a lower level of results if you starve them from this valuable information source.

• Increase in reach. Reading is only one form of learning, of which there are many. The more different learning styles you use in your marketing, the larger percentage of your potential audience you’ll reach.

• Increase in status. Let’s face it; if we read something extraordinary, we may become interested, but some doubt remains. Were these claims penned by the “author”? Is it in their own words? Was there a ghostwriter involved? But when we SEE and HEAR someone talking about their area of expertise, we perk up – we know that they are, indeed, the expert, not just a mouthpiece for someone else’s words. And to take advantage of this quickly, seriously consider taking on a solo virtual assistant, or even a group of virtual assistants to maximise your efforts in a very short span of time.

That should be enough proof for you to convince you to give this video thing more consideration. It’s understandable if you have an element of doubt, so don’t worry. We’re going to show you just how to get over your fear of the camera and how you can put yourself across well in the next section.

First of all, we’re always hardest on ourselves. Other people normally won’t think you look bad, even when you feel like you do.

Secondly, do either of these names ring a bell – Gene Wilder or Danny Devito? You would never say that either of them look like an oil painting, but each made a significant career from their efforts in front of a camera. Don’t forget, an “on point” virtual assistance can help you with all the details.

However you look, however nervous you are and how little you think you have an ability to speak on camera, you can nevertheless introduce video into your Internet activities and take advantage of some of the benefits that this can bring you.
