Video Marketing For Newbies – How To Easily Crop, Edit, & Publish

Video Marketing For NewbiesVideo Marketing For Newbies, You really should consider it.

If you are new to Network Marketing and especially new to video marketing for your MLM business, this video will give you a few tips on how to easily, crop, edit and publish your videos to YouTube using iMovie 09.

But before you check out the video, lets look at the 5 main reasons why Video Marketing will increase your rankings.

Video marketing is one of the fastest growing mediums to explode onto the internet scene today. It is projected that YouTube will soon become the next Google. That shouldn’t ruffle Google’s feathers all that much since they own YouTube. In 2006 Google paid 1.65 billion dollars worth of stock to acquire YouTube.

YouTube currently exceeds 2 billion views per day. Nearly double the prime-time audience of all 3 major U.S. networks combined. The average person spends 15 minutes a day on YouTube.

Can you really afford to ignore video marketing any longer? Here are 5 other reasons why you need to be doing video marketing in your MLM business today.

1. Google Loves Video

Being that Google owns YouTube they will index videos on a regular basis.  Video is the fastest way to get top ranking organically in the search engines. If your keywords are done correctly, and you practice using longterm keywords, it’s possible to get ranked in the top 3 spots in 1 day.

2. Branding YOU!

Personal branding is super important if you are going to be successful in Network Marketing. Putting your face out there lets your potential customers know that you are a real human being. People buy from those they trust right? What better way for your prospects to get to know you better than through video marketing!

If you’re still a bit shy and reserved about putting your face out there, and believe me, I was in the beginning.  You can always start producing educational videos like the one you are about to view.  Explaining and showing people “HOW TO’ is just as powerful.  This way you are still gaining the benefits and the power of video to gain better search engine rankings.

3. Works 24/7

So even while you are sleeping, video marketing can reach the millions of people on the other side of the world.  Don’t forget, while your sound asleep, someone on the other side is wide awake and searching for what you may have to offer.

4. It’s FREE!

Video marketing costs nothing to produce. Who says there are no free lunches 🙂

Yes time is money, and video marketing will take you away from your primary income producing activity… Like Prospecting, which is the only true money maker.  So I suggest planning your video marketing around those off peak times of prospecting.  Make sure you are dedicating a minimum of 70% of your time to contacting people and getting your business opportunity in front of them. That is the only way you are going to build a downline and generate any real income.

5. Free Traffic & Leads

Lets face it, we all need more traffic and to generate more leads.  That is one of the main reasons you put so much time and effort into your blog and websites.

Video has a much better chance of going viral and being spread all over the internet, quickly. Most of us would rather watch a 3 or 4 minute video as opposed to reading a 500 to 1000 word article.

I’m not saying to quit writing articles and offering value that way, but if you want your content to rank higher in the search engines, quickly, and for more people to see it, then you really must incorporate video marketing into your MLM business strategy.

Okay enough preaching!  On with the video of how to easily crop, edit and publish your videos.

If you are new to the Mac and have never worked in iMovie 09, you will love how simple and powerful this free program is. (it ships with every Mac)  🙂  Sorry Window users, I grew up on a Mac and it’s all I know.  iHear Windows has their own version, Windows Movie Maker. From what I understand, it’s not as user friendly, but I am sure you can create similar results.

I’ve broken these tips into two videos, I hope you enjoy them.

    Hey Richard, you are so right. Video is a very powerful marketing strategy. One other thing for internet marketing beginner to remember is that it’s best to start using only 1 strategy until you master it – only then branch out to others. Video is a great way to go though!
