Videos have come a long way online. They are now showing up in just about every promotion you see, and for good reason, they produce a lot of sales!
You can certainly easily learn to use videos to promote your affiliate products with amazing success.If you don’t, then your leaving cash on the table. In in this post I will show you what steps you need to follow in order to be successful. Otherwise you may wind up just wasting your time.
But when you first start out using videos for your affiliate marketing products or services, try to keep it simple. Its very easy to get carried away and try to do too much.
You don’t need the best broadcasting voice to make successful videos. As long as you articulate well enough so that people can understand what your saying. Speak clearly with a good tempo, not too fast, not too slow.
To get a better idea on how to do this, search for affiliate marketing blogs and see how they use videos.
Its not a problem if you don’t want to do this yourself. You can outsource it as long as you provide written content with instructions as to what you want.
One way to get started that has been tested with great results is creating a video of the members area of an affiliate product.
Make a screen capture video using a program like Camtasia. Camtasia is only one screen capture program out there, so do some research to see which would be best for you. There are others which are much cheaper, but with fewer features.
CamStudio is a FREE alternative which will serve most, if not all your needs.
Another one is Debut Video which is also free for personal use and costs 29.99 for commercial use. (Much less than what Camtasia costs).
Also, make sure you check your own computer to see if you already have some editing software already installed. A lot of computers come with video editing software for home movies and such. You can use this exact same software to edit your screen capture marketing videos.
For example, if you have Windows you probable have “Windows Live Movie Maker”
Notice the “You Tube” Icon. Once you have completed your video, you just click on the icon to upload your Video to You Tube. Assuming, of course, that you have a You Tube Account.
Create Your YouTube Account
The first thing you need to do is go to http://youtube.com and then click the “Sign in” button which is at the top right hand corner of the home page. Then click “Create Account”.
To create a YouTube account you will need a Gmail account (Google owns YouTube).
After your account is created you need to create a “channel”. A channel can be something as simple as the title of a digital affiliate product your promoting. For example it could be “WordPress Crash Course”. To set up your channel go to the YouTube Links area and click where it says “My channel.”
Later you can set up as many channels as you need to upload to YouTube.
