So to Recap on Keywords

Make sure you are doing a thorough keyword research for your keywords.  There is no point choosing keywords that look great because they have so much traffic but are really competitive.  I can give you the tip right now, there is no way you will rank well with them, or worse still, not get any traffic back to your website.  So be mindful of what keywords you use.  Here is a great keyword search tool that assists in getting low competition keywords – and your first 30 searches are free!

Making Videos and Uploading

There are many ways you can do video these days.  You can capture your screen with programs like Screencast-o-matic  or  Camstudio.  You could do a slide show presentation with free software like Powtoon or Animoto. Perhaps video marketing is right up your alley and you enjoy talking and being in front of the camera. These days you can easily video something on your smart phone, and upload it to Youtube.  

Gone are the days of really sophisticated and expensive equipment to do a video.  And if you are interested in video marketing, facing your fear of video and then check out my review here on awesome training that will have you, not only video marketing – but taking attraction marketing in your own videos to a whole new level!

Once you have uploaded to Youtube, make sure you are putting in your low competition keywords and more importantly in the right places.  In your title, and description and also adding relevant tags as well.  And always give a CTA – a Call to Action.  There is no point doing all this work, being found on Google and Youtube then not providing the next step (link to click) for your visitors to do.  Make sure you lead people to click on a link that takes them back to your website.

Be clear and even add curiosity to your titles to get more clicks!

Also, check your advanced settings in Youtube and be certain you are selecting appropriate things for your videos like allowing comments and your recording date etc.



Making videos can become a quick and easy thing to do.  What this does for you is not only add another way for you to be found in Google, but you can now make another blog post and incorporate the video you have just created.  So you will have more quality content and the possibility of being found everywhere!
