My first ever commission online came from a video, video was and is my best source of free traffic and brings me sales every single day. To me, video marketing is a must for every business, from home to online business and even local businesses.
Video is a visual media and we like to watch things more than reading them from a book or a computer screen. This is why video is the most powerful tool for every business and if it used right, it can make you lots of money quickly.
In this long but detailed post, I’ll go over my own video marketing strategies, personal experience and show you how exactly you can use video to make money and commissions online as soon as TODAY!
Why you should make money online from video marketing and YouTube?
With 4 billion daily views and 72 hours of footage uploaded every single hour, YouTube is one place you want to be and upload your money making videos. If you’re looking to start your own home business or to be exact, affiliate marketing business, YouTube is one place you MUST be present all the time with your videos.
Step 1 to making money from video marketing: Create your money video
There are many ways to create a video that is going to make you money. From face-recorded videos, to screen voice overs and simple video explainers. But the main question is: “which one is the right option for you?”
I usually suggest and do a mix of face-recorded videos and screen-recorded videos for info product reviews. First step to make a sale is to show a face. With showing your face & or someone else’s face in the beginning of your video, you immediately stablish trust with your viewer which is going to boost your sales and make you more money.
For lecture or presentation style videos, you can use a voice over gig on Fiverr or do the presentation yourself while recording on a PowerPoint slide.
Step 2 to making money from video marketing: Optimize your video, upload and optimize again
Second step is video SEO and optimization which is a very critical part of your process. If you don’t do this step right, your video won’t get any exposure which results in no sales and no money.
Video SEO and Optimization is a massive subject to cover in a single article, but I’ll share a couple of key video optimization points here for you:
Upload your video’s transcript:
After uploading your video’s file to YouTube, upload a transcript of your video too or let YouTube create a transcript for you, then go and edit it to correct YouTube’s mistakes.
Choose a catchy title
Before writing a title, do a research on your competitor videos. See what kind of titles are ranking in your niche and create an original and catchy title based on your competitor’s videos. Choose a title that will make people wonder about your video’s content and forces them to click on your video.
Create awesome and eye catching thumbnail for your video
In order to upload a thumbnail on YouTube, you should confirm your account first. After that, you can add your own thumbnail artwork to every video. To create a thumbnail, you get a screen shot of your video and add some text into it or you can get creative and create a YouTube thumbnail like I do with Piktochart or order it from Fiverr.
“If you create the right video for the right audience and do video SEO right, you can earn commissions as soon as TOMORROW!”
