1

 

KEEP THE VIDEO SHORT AND GET TO THE POINT!

 

If you are trying to grab someones attention and draw them to your website or to contact you, remember that LESS is MORE! Try to keep your video to less than 1 minute… 30 seconds is even better! Also, within the first 5-10 seconds of your video, you need to deliver the hook… What is a hook? Something that is going to make the watcher want to get more info either from watching the rest of the video, going to your website or blog and or contacting you directly.

ACTUAL VIDEO MAY NOT BE BEST!

 

If you have ever tried to make a video video with people acting (or trying to) and lighting, lines etc… it is a FREEKIN Nightmare! I say why do it! You can accomplish the same impact with your customers taking still pictures and using a site like animoto.com Animoto (and sites like it) give you several advantages… like FREE music! Believe it or not, you can’t just use any music in your videos… the artists will hunt you down and charge you a royalty for every time the video has been played…

MAKE SEVERAL VERSIONS OF THE SAME VIDEO

 

This is where a site like Animoto can really help you. Once you have uploaded your pictures, chosen a theme and music, Animoto will auto produce the video… once finished, view it, make any changes you want and download to your computer… Next, have Animoto auto produce it again… it will come out different every time. Save many versions of the same video for the next step.

VIDEO TITLE IS HUGE FOR RANKINGS

 

Google (and other search engines) do not have EYES…. The bots that index your video can only READ… so the title of your video is SUPER important! You should only target 1 or 2 keywords (or keyword phrase) for each video you upload…. plus the title should include your city and the name of your business along with your phone number.

BE DESCRIPTIVE!

 

Second most important thing when uploading your video to YouTube is the description! Remember that the bots don’t have EYES! So your description should be very descriptive. Start by putting a link to your website (http://yourURL.com), and then your phone number… followed by all of the same information in the title of the video (keywords, city, etc.).

NOTE: Even though you are including keywords etc into the title and description of your video… ultimately it will be Humans reading it… so you need to be cleaver and write something that will make them want to watch it!
