Why I love video marketing

DIY Online Solutions- Video Marketing vLog by Jennifer Cloake

People ask me all the time why I’m so hot on video marketing? Believe it or not, I wasn’t always in love with them. I was pretty much camera shy. Gaining 30 lbs didn’t exactly boost my confidence in the camera department either.

Here’s the thing, people want to connect with you. You want to stand out, you have to be visible in some way, shape, and form. Videos don’t have to be the answer for you but it sure is a quick easy way to get your Message out to the public.

1. I love it because I get to post it on Youtube. Youtube gives me some html code (in street talk: jibberish) where I can easily copy and paste it into my blog posts. Super simple!

2. I love it because I get to connect! Truly connect. With technology, not really feasible to have coffee meetings anymore…certainly doesn’t work when it’s on a global scale. Well, videos would be the next best thing. No one wants to read anymore. They want to Feel your vibe!

3. View the video…there are many hints such as modifying and recycle your content, marketing tool for Coaches, riding on others’ SEO (Search Engine Optimization) Efforts. There, enough said on #3…video blogging is way easier and faster for me than typing it all out for you!

Now you get why I love video marketing? ^_^

Luv, peas & carrots! May the Online Force be with you…

Focus on Social Media or SEO?

YouTube vLog: Dave and Jennifer, your 2 Nerds, discuss whether to focus your marketing efforts with SEO or Social Media.

Some say focus on SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and some say Social Networking is the way to go.  Well, which is it?

A discussion on where to start — Should you focus on Social Media first, or Search Engine Optimization?

Bottom line is that you should focus on what you WANT to do- followed by what you’re good at.

If you’re more social and feel comfortable doing Social Media, then start with Social Media.

If you’re more technical and like SEO then you should begin your online efforts with SEO.

Doing something that you’re not comfortable with will feel like work. So if you concentrate on what you’re interested in, either Social Media or SEO, then it’ll come more naturally and easier.

Even if you’re shy, you can reach out and help others online.  Try reaching out by emailing or messaging people privately.  You do not need to be “public” about it.  Popular people are generally the ones who are willing to reach out and make a difference in people’s lives.  They authentically create an experience where they can help others  feel good about themselves.

Reach out and help someone today!  Even if  it’s saying Hi, smile, or asking how they are doing.

Let Web Site Sit for SEO

Dave Jesch, DIY Tech Nerd, and Jennifer Cloake, DIY Marketing Nerd discusses how letting your site sit can help you earn SEO (Search Engine Optimization) points with Google–  Another episode of “Forbidden Love- Tech & Marketing”:

Just setting up your web site without putting up a whole lot of content can actually help you when it comes to SEO.

The age of your domain name is part of what search engines look at when it comes to the importance of your site and how you will rank. So purchasing your domain name and putting up a simple landing page — before you plan out the rest of your site’s content — can help you in ranking better with the search engines.
