After the Social Media Summit in May, I jumped more into Youtube. Connecting any video you create to an article and products or services seems to meet many needs at one time.
I listened very closely to James Wedmore, bought his ebook and practiced the video idea. I then attended one of his free webinars that went over the use of Camtasia. WOW! I am using it on a trial basis now and purchasing it with Snagit in August. It is very easy to use. It is a wonderful teaching tool, sharing tool; perfect for professionally done slideshows. It even opened the door to another service for me to offer – Creating slideshows for wedding receptions.
I think I am going to offer a free service to military families that want to create a slide show for people stationed away from home.
How this all works for me: I use Hubpages because it is a very engaging community and easy to share the youtube videos. My id on there is Bridalletter. I decide on a subject, develop the products or services (in anyone elses case, it would be on existing items), create an article and create a video.
I do have a blog and I will use it more than Hubpages eventually, but I need more time to develop a worthwhile blog. In the meantime, this combo is working very well.
I think what will help me with conversion is to utilize the email leads I have, by letting them know about new videos, articles, products and services. That email program is harder to use since the company changed, but I will figure it out this month!
