Creating a video for your social media sites or website may seem like a daunting task. Wouldn’t it be great if someone could tell you how to make a five minute video in under an hour without having to know all about video editing? And better still, how you can get your video seen by hundreds or even thousands of visitors that are eager to know more about your product or services? Well here is the help you’ve been looking for!
Making a Video is Easier Than You Think
When you think of making a video, you may picture complicated camera equipment and a lengthy editing process that requires a degree just to get it right.
If you want to spend the money, around $400, you can hire a videography student to film and edit your video. It’ll be a high-quality investment.
If you just can’t or won’t spend the money on making a video, there are numerous services available that you can use to make a video for little or no money. These can be something simple like a slideshow to which you can add a voice-over.
This gives you the opportunity to deliver content with images, text and your voice with minimal cost. Customers put more stock in the content, not how it’s delivered.
If you want to make a short informational video, it could take less than a week to pull together. A simple voice-over slideshow can take less than an hour.
Distributing Your Video to Hundreds of Viewers
Once you have your video, you’ll want to make sure it’s seen by as many people as possible. You can do that with a simple click of a mouse.
One way to do this is with TubeMogul, a free way to distribute your videos. Just create an account on each service you want your video uploaded to. The software will upload your video to each site automatically with just one click.
Another service you can use is TrafficGeyser. For $70 a month, your video will be distributed to over 40 sites.
Why You Need to Distribute Your Videos
There are a couple of reasons why distributing your videos to multiple sites is an absolute must.
The first reason for video distribution is traffic. The better-known sites, like YouTube, tend to get the most traffic. But you don’t want to neglect the smaller sites which also have a very strong following.
Secondly, you want to increase your back links. In order to improve your ranking with search engines, you must have back links. Each video you post could bring you 30-100 back links when you submit them to a variety of video websites.
Setup could take some time, but once it’s complete the distribution process can take you less than 15 minutes. It’s not unheard of to create one video a day, leading to 50 links everyday, which means 1,500 back links directly to your site each month!
Creating and distributing your own videos online is such a simple process. With just a few hours of invested time, you could have videos out there being viewed by hundreds or even thousands of visitors. You’ll greatly increase the number of back links to your social media sites or website, propelling your search engine rankings and attracting more and more traffic each day!
