What do you get when you combine Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube? One hell of a social media marketing tool that you can use to promote your website, affiliate offers, your own products, etc. If you want people to know about what you can offer them, or have for them to buy you need to put it out there where the most people hang out and millions of people each day use Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
Lets say you want to promote “brand-x traffic booster” lets say it’s a ClickBank item, well first off if you’ve tried it all the better now you can give an honest review. You can make a short video about the product, you can even use free software to do this. Screencast-O-Matic, Free Screencast, and Open Broadcaster Software (OBS), all can do a good job of this for you. Or you can fork out some cash and grab one of the paid ones, you can find them with a quick Google search. With programs like Camtasia by TechSmith you can get a trial for free or buy it for $199. In a few days I hope to be approved for the affiliate network they use and a few others so I can bring you the best software and reviews I can and hopefully get paid a little something, got to eat right.
Anyway make your review video and even write up a good little review article for your blog if you have one. Next you’ll want to get your video upload to YouTube. You’ll then want to write a good description about what the video is about, a good title, and be sure you have your affiliate link and the link to your own site in the description, this may get you some more traffic and may even result in a sale or two, more if you are lucky.
Next you’ll want to share that video and on Facebook, Twitter, and even Google+. You’ll want the posts public so more people will see it. Ask your friends to help you out by liking your video on Facebook and Retweeting it, or +1ing it. The more social signals you get on your video the more traffic you should be getting on YouTube, and your own site.
Now make another video for another product, and then another and another. Try to make about seven reviews a week for the next couple weeks, with any luck in a few weeks you may start seeing some sales. If people like you and your work they may be willing to spend their money to help you out, and if your a jobless bum like me you’ll need all the help you can get, unless I get accepted to a truck-driving school.
(Didn’t get accepted for Truck-driving school for some reason, but I did get a job on the boats again so who needs a job making $30-60k driving trucks when I can make over $130k as a captain on a boat.)
Anyway if you want to lean more about meshing these social giants together to produce great results then check out the book below, it’s on Amazon. I know that I won’t make but a few cents if you buy it but hey you need cents to make dollars. Best of luck to you in whatever path you take.
Amazon links may not work I have to re apply for my account. Plus there are a lot of other social networks that you can use, you don’t have to focus on just video content either.
