One of the biggest problems for a lot of video marketers is the ability to create pro looking videos. For me personally, I’d say this is the hardest thing. Sure there are tons of whiteboard video style makers out there but they have long learning curves and can be quite time-consuming.

Regarding video, did you know that 92% of the top Clickbank products use VSLs? VSLs ( Video Sales Letters) are immensely powerful, regardless of whether you like them or not.

I use them for my on products and am a paying user of EASY VSL 2.0. In fact, that was one of the best products I ever bought and have used it to create YouTube videos, VSLs and bonus videos to name a few.

It works on MAC and PC, is slick, and so so easy to use. Here is a VSL I made with Easy VSL 2:

All I did was write the script. My friend Lenny  spoke and recorded and MP3 with Audacity ( FREE) and then I used the software to sync. If I were better at graphics, it would have looked sexier but the point it, it’s very easy to use.

Version 3 is even better with some great functions:

[+] Kinetic Animation:  Create “kinetic-style” or animation typography videos using one of the 10 pre-designed kinetic themes.

[+] Import Keynote/Powerpoint:   Import any existing keynote or powerpoint presentation into EasyVSL.

[+] Image Library/YouZign Integration:  Now you can search over 1,000,000 royalty free images/graphics to add directly into your EasyVSL videos.

[+] Sound Effect Transitions:  You can add sounds effects to your slide and text transitions to help grab the viewers attention.

[+] Speech Recognition:  You don’t have to manually sync your slides with your voice.  Just push the button and watch EasyVSL sync your voice with your slides.

Enhancements have been made to the features you already if you are an EASY VSL 2 user:

[+] Easy Script to Slide Creation
[+] More Slide Templates
[+] More Fonts (use your local PC/Mac fonts)
[+] Drag and Drop Existing Video Clips
[+] More Accurate Speech-to-Text Detection
[+] Additional Text-to-Speech Voices/Languages
[+] 30+ Languages to Translate Your Videos
[+] Additional Quick Key Shortcuts

Adding captions to a Facebook video will yield much better results. But you do NOT want to use the free option that Facebook provides. You want to upload an SRT file.

How do you do that?

You get a pro to make them, add them automatically to your Youtube video and use the same SRT file and upload into Facebook directly when you upload a video.

Your Facebook Video Ads will have much better results.

Sound complicated? Not at all. Just follow the steps in the following 2 videos:

YouTube Analytics

How to get better results with YouTube Analytics

How to Use YouTube Analytics to Get Better Results

In this post we’re going to look at how you can get better results with your video. We’ll use the YouTube Analytics section of your YouTube channel.

As you read the post, you can follow along with this Youtube Analytics video.

Once you’re inside of your YouTube channel, come into your Creator Studio and come down to where it says Analytics and then when you click on that, the thing you want to look for is Audience Retention.

You can get a load of really cool data inside of the Analytics

One of the most important things to find is Audience Retention.

This is really, really key because what you’re going to find out here is when people are dropping off of your videos.

In the above video I talk about this video on my channel:  How To Add a Clickable Link To a YouTube Video and Redirect Anywhere Online.

This is coming up to, I think it’s a quarter of a million views and in the last few days, the last 28 days we’ve got just under 4,000 views, which is great but unfortunately the average person is only watching this for 29 percent of the total video, or one minute and 42 seconds.

What I should do is I should go into this video and maybe ten seconds before, so about one and a half minutes. Then, I should add an annotation and that  should either encourage people to watch the rest of the video. Or it should have a call to action getting people off of the video because they were going to drop off anyway and perhaps offer them a free gift in exchange for an email.

That way I’ll build my list. This is a great method that you can use so that you actually know when to put your annotations on. Now of course you don’t know this until you start getting traffic to your videos.

That’s why a lot of people, I think, make mistakes and they create videos that are too long. Three minutes is an ideal length for your video, but still even then people have short attention spans and they’re not going to watch the whole thing.

Go into your analytics, check your most watched videos and see where people are dropping off and add an annotation ten seconds before that point and encourage people to perhaps opt in for a free gift or take another action. You’ll find that you’ll get much better results with your video marketing.

I have decided that YouTube Cards are just not doing it. Though they could still be used for SEO purposes.

Hope you enjoyed this YouTube Analytics tip. If you did, please subscribe to my channel and leave a like and a comment below. Cheers and I’ll speak to you soon.

How to Use YouTube End Cards – Mobile Annotations

In today’s tutorial, I want to talk to you about the new End Screen and Annotations feature that YouTube has just taken out of beta. It’s been on certain people’s accounts for a while, but now it’s available to everybody.

Where it would normally have said Annotations, it says End Screen and Annotations.

Like here:

End Cards

Or here:

How to Use End Cards

If you want to go back to the original method of just having Annotations, you can click the Annotations link and it will take you to the old one.

What basically this means is it allows you to add stuff at the end of your video, and only the last twenty seconds. If you want to use the End Screen and Annotations method, you need to make sure that the last twenty seconds of your video is not something important you’re trying to teach.

If you’re doing an on-screen video or a screen share video, you want to make sure that for the last twenty seconds, you’re not sharing vital stuff. If it’s your face talking, a talking head video, you want to make sure that you finish saying what you got to say and maybe have just a blank canvas at the end.

YouTube End Cards – Add Element

Once you open up the option, you can click ‘add element’. There you have 4 choices, one of which is subscribe to your channel.

That will bring up the profile picture of your channel, which you can then drag and drop anywhere that you want, so let’s leave that there.

You can then add a video or a playlist, these are the two things that we’ll use most of the time. You get three choices. I would recommend best for viewer and most recent upload.

If I click most recent upload, that’s obvious what it is. Create element and it will take your most recent video and then you can drag and drop that. You can make it a little bit bigger or a little bit smaller.

Next choose best for viewer. What this does, it goes through all of your public videos and it picks out the best video for that particular viewer based on their history, which is really, really cool because it’s going to show them the most interesting one for them. Therefor, there’s a higher chance they are going to watch it, even if it’s an old one. It’s still cool. You’re only allowed four of these. Four could be a bit overkill, but if you wanted to add a link to an approved website, you could.

Note: Great for E-com stores or affiliate stuff.

For the last twenty seconds of my video, these would be clickable both on desktop and on mobile, which is very, very big because a lot of traffic on YouTube is mobile. The longer you can keep people on your channel or get them to subscribe or even direct them off of YouTube the better.

That’s it. That is the End Screen function. Hope you found this post useful.

Launchjacking

What is Launchjacking?

And Why is it a BAD business Model for Low end products

In this post, I’m going to talk about why the concept of launchjacking is, in my opinion, a bad strategy and definitely not a long-term business concept that you should take seriously.

I know there are many products out there that teach launchjacking. There are many video-related products that advocate the concept of launchjacking but I don’t think it’s a good idea. It’s not one that people should really take seriously. But let’s first go through what launchjacking is, in case you don’t know.

There are products being launched consistently in various niches, but especially in making money online. There are products being released every single day. Usually, three or four or five a day. Sometimes more.

So what people will tend to do is they will make review videos and too do the same thing. But they’ll make videos reviewing these products, trying to rank them on youtube or trying to rank their websites on Google.

People employ this strategy in the hope that people will come on to Youtube or Google, type in the search term, product name review, or product name, or product name bonus and they will come across their video. Then, they hope a viewer will click on the buy button and that person will make an affiliate commission.

In theory, that sounds like it’s a great idea because you know, these products get a little bit search volume. The trouble is: the short… the shelf life of these products is very, very short.

Most products, you know, it’s like for two or three days, they get searched for and after that, they get completely forgotten about and the next one’s up there. Again, two or three days later, they’ve gone and the next one’s up there.

A Bad Idea

So this is why I think it’s a bad idea. It’s very difficult to rank your video for a new product quickly but it is easy to rank it long term.

When I review a product and I make my review video  I upload it to Youtube.  But I’m not worried about getting a hundred percent optimized or you know, getting my SEO down clearly because there are a lot of people out there that do these review videos, that do a lot of underhand black hat stuff. This is because they know their videos will rank very quickly and stay there for a day or two and then you know, two weeks later, they will disappear.

They don’t care. And rightly so because two weeks later, no one’s looking for that product. No one in the real world’s ever heard of the actual product creator either. It’s a very short term thing so there are a lot of people out there doing black hat stuff and stuff that might get them in trouble. They don’t care because the video ranked…it ranked for two or three days and disappears.

Other people, who are in this more long term, they have a lot of follows. So they could make a review video and send it out to their lists and that video will get a lot of views in a very short period of time. People will watch the majority of that video and therefore, they will rank more easily.

So the average person is gonna really really struggle.

One tip in all of this is to learn first how to build and optimize your channel.

Here I talk about launchjacking and give an example:

Hope you enjoyed the product, if so, I’d love a comment or tweet 🙂

YouTube Ads

How to get Better YouTube Ads Results

Ranking Tip: Get Better YouTube Ads Results

YouTube Discovery Ads are great as they get you more really targeted views which in turn leads to higher rankings.

But many folks run into the problem of setting up their ads and then getting NO traffic. Let me solve that here.

What some people say is that they set up their discovery ad, their ad goes to eligible, and they receive absolutely no traffic, no views, nothing.

What often is the case here is that your bid is too low, and there are other people within the system who are bidding higher than you, so of course it goes without saying that the ad words system is going to get more power to those videos because they bid more money.

What you could do is bid high and budget low.

By that I mean keep your daily budget into something that you can actually afford. If you can only afford to spend 15, $20 a day per video, then don’t budget over that because you won’t go over that budget on a daily basis. What you can do is go to your bid and really increase it.

I’ll give you an example. I’m running 1 video ad to a very high-competition keyword. If I was to bid the usual 3 cents, 4 cents, 5 cents, even 30, 40 cents, I wouldn’t get any traffic whatsoever.

That is actually what’s happened to 1 of my videos. Rather than worry or panic or complain about it, I’m going to go into the ad group for that video, and I’m just going to up the bid to something like $1.50, maybe even $2 per view. While that might seem a little bit extreme, that’s the maximum that you will pay.

It’s not the realistic number that you will pay. What I mean by that is you’re telling YouTube that you are to prepared to pay more than $2 per view, for example, but YouTube still won’t charge you that.

I have 1 video that I’m bidding $1.50 on because it’s a high-competition keyword, but I’m still actually only paying 20 cents per view. By putting my bid up higher, basically that’s my way of telling YouTube that I’m serious, and somebody to be reckoned with, so please drive traffic to that video.

You’re going to have to play around with your bid, gradually increase it, if it’s already eligible, give it 12 to 24 hours, and if you still don’t get in the traffic, increase it again. You may have to increase it quite a lot, but if you keep your budget within a realistic affordable amount, you won’t have to worry.

Hope that makes sense. Any questions, leave them in the comments, and please subscribe to my channel if you haven’t done so already. Thanks for reading and if you want to learn more about YouTube ads, I have a FREE video here.

Do I need a Website?

Yes, You DO need a Website

Rant or Advice – Let’s See How This Pans Out

After speaking with quite a few folk recently over Skype, it has become apparent, to me at least, that some folk are just not ready to make any form of income online.

And before I go on, let me say that I am no smarter than anyone else. What I do is take action, and work my arse off.

Ok, back to the main topic of this blog post.

On my Skype chats I have met some great people who have become clients, some that just simply needed a few pointers, as well as a few who have listened to my advice, and decided to continue to do what it was that was getting them nowhere.

But what really gets me is that I get asked some pretty crazy questions:

+ Do I need a website?

+ How long until I can make money?

+ I want to make $2000 per month. Can I?

All of these questions are the wrong thing to ask. The last two come more out of a desperation to make money, so I can understand them, even if they are impossible to answer. Too many variables on the questioners work ethic.

But it is this question that gets me…

Do I need a Website?

Hello…

This is the Internet! So of course you need a website.

That is like trying to drive but asking if you need a car.

Or wanting to be a great Golfer but asking if you need any clubs!

Yes…

You need a website. And not just any old thing you slap up. But something decent. Your website will be the place where you send all your eyeballs, in the hope they become a subscriber or buy a product you own/recommend.

And each website should be in a particular niche and have a particular avatar.

Let’s look at niche selection…

Niche Selection 101

If you want to create a niche site for affiliate marketing, then here are some basic tips to follow:

Now, as you may know, I do a lot of YouTube marketing. For YouTube, there are a different et of criteria hen choosing a niche and I explain all in this expensive PDF guide called the YouTube Money Map. Click the image to get it.

Money+map+bundle

Whatever you decide, please put thought into niche selection. And also ensure you identify your avatar, which is something I make sure people go through in my 1-1 trainings.

If you would like more 1-1 help, then you can schedule an appointment here to talk.

Im tired now and gonna get some kip. Camping has worn me out and I have a bunch to do tomorrow. In the meantime, let me know in the comment if the post a useful, or a load of rambling rubbish 🙂

Cheers!

 

 

 

 

Getting in the Mind of your avatar

Getting in the Mind of your avatar

If you want to attract more of YOUR target population, then you must identify them with laser­-like proficiency. One of the best ways to do this is to be able to visualize your target market. I recommend using an Avatar approach. This way you can envision exactly what your target looks like. Once you can see them in your mind’s eye, it’s much easier to attract them.

To get specific, you need to know the pain points of a particular group of people.

Trouble is, many folk struggle on how to define their ideal target customer. Others are simply too lazy to research.

So let’s look at a very cool free site that helps you with your competitive research that helps you delve deep into the mind of your ideal target customer, AKA your customer avatar.

This video explains the free resource that has so much intel it is scary.

Getting in the Mind of your avatar – SnoopSnoo Review for Subreddits

Personally, I’ve never been a big user on Reditt. But SnoopSnoo has changed all that. By following the guide in the video, you can pretty  much get all the intel you’ll ever need for learning all about your ideal target customer’s pain points.

When you know other people’s problems, you yourself have an opportunity.

Getting in the Mind of your avatar

Sub Reddits are full of real people airing their problems, pains and grievances. These are an educated crossed that gather in these small forum like groups. You can use SnoopSnoo to see, to read, to spy.

And that intel will give you a never ending supply of headlines, blog topics, advertorial content, emails, tweets, Facebook Fan Page posts…you get my drift, eh!

Listen,these people are TELLING YOU what they are worried about. Your job is to use this to write copy and content and then target them via YouTube Ads, Facebook Ads, SEO….It all works.

Here is my free gift to you on how to do research like the pros.

As someone once said, There ain’t nothing to it, but to do it!
