Do you use video in your online marketing? Why or why not?

Hey George,

Video is pretty much ALL I do. For myself and my clients. You can't hide behind video. RE online: it's the best way to connect on an emotional level (where sales are made) with someone whether pre recorded or live streaming.

Cleaning this would be a pain!


Let this serve as a reminder to all of us: secure your sites as part of your set up procedure! Little things like changing the default super-admin to another name and ID, changing the prefix for the MySQL database tables from wp_. Writing good .htaccess files.

Peter Montgomery answered this question

How do you set up a blog?

As James says,

If you are building a standalone blog make it on WordPress.

Buy your domain from either Crazy Domains or Godaddy. (I use Godaddy) If your business is Primarily in Australia use .com.au   if it's Global use .com
Buy hosting. I love Hostgator. Great chat support.
Inside of Hostgator use Fantastico Deluxe (Scroll down to the smiley face and click on it) and set it up on Wordpress (Top left options) Fill out your details.
Get your DNS (Domain Name Servers) numbers from hostgator In the same place the smiley face was on the left side panel you'll see them. 2 numbers. Copy them.
Go inside Godaddy or where ever you got your domain and find the place to manage your domains and DNS and enter your Numbers you got from hostgator into the appropriate spaces.
It may take a while for these settings to take effect. Type your new web address into the adress bar on your browser and it should come up with your new very boring looking wordpress blog.
Log in and go to appearance on the left hand side and click themes. In there you can select a theme for how you want your blog to look (until you pay to get a custom job done)
This is a very simplistic outline and nothing is ever as easy as it is made out but from this if you are happy to work at it you will be able to figure it out and will 'learn on the job'
Good luck and try not to get too frustrated with it all. If you get stuck come back here to this thread and explain what part you're stuck on and I'm sure we can all get you through it.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

How do I get my videos to rank on YouTube

I just thought a real example would be better than a made up one and you can also check how well it works for real over on Youtube, especially if you type in the question and the break down of the question in the tags. You can also find out what doesn't work so well on a new video too I guess.

Henrik Larsen, Director at IePlus Pty Ltd

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)

How do I get my videos to rank on YouTube

First thing to consider is what keyword, phrase, question you want it to be ranked for. Basically what will someone who is looking for what your video will give them type in to search for it.

This is actually a cut and paste of a file I sent to Zaki Ameer (a friend and client of mine) for him to use on a video we made together so it will be ranked: Notice where our keywords are placed. We are going for Brand name - 'Dream Design Do'  also his own name - 'Zaki Ameer'  and a question - 'Why invest in existing established properties'. Plus the description was simply written so the reader knows what value they'll get from watching the video and to position Zaki as someone they really should listen to when it comes to property, all to inspire them to watch it, (views help it rank)

Once you decide what your keywords are, put them in your title, description and tags and also variations of those keywords. In this example I broke the question down (in the tags) to smaller phrases by removing a word at a time. 

And always put your link at the beginning of your text so that the only step they need to take to visit your website is click the link. Less steps for them the better. The viewer doesn't need to click 'Show More' to see the whole description and then find your link.

How do you publish an article on social media?

G'day Paul and Richard.

Great meeting you both at the event last night at SavvySME HQ

Like Richard said SavvySME can be used to publish your articles and is a great place to start as it has built in features to share it automatically to your social networks.

RE: writing the content: One way I've used is to make bullet points of what you want to talk about then record yourself talking about each point in turn.

Next type out what you said word for word only editing the ums and aahs and when your sentences aren't quite complete. This way it reads like you talk and feels like someone speaking to you rather than formal. Much more likely to connect with the reader. Put your bullet points in bold in the article like sub headings so people who skim can still get the gist of your article.  

 

 

 

Peter Montgomery answered this question

Who do you use for your SEO?

Real question: What do SEO companies actually do these days? with getting backlinks being far less important as it used to be unless they're from another site in your industry.

Having great content consistently posted on your site with your keyword/phrase of choice in your title, description, <h1> tags, url, and at the beginning and sometimes the end of your text on your page is all you need to do.

I'd reckon go for an SEO company who creates content for you and even better, with you. Video, text and audio and pick one that works with you to create content that's based on your real-world knowledge and experience of your industry. Have them interview you on video and use those in depth interviews as video content, to write article content and make downloadable audios from them.

Do you use YouTube to generate new business?

I was commissioned by Zaki Ameer to do an interview series about his property investing business. Just asking him specific questions as a set up for him to discuss certain aspects of how to do his thing. We did 10 videos and he's really happy with how they turned out. He uses them on facebook and on his website etc... 1000's of views.

He must make money from it because he's asked me to do a once a week one question on going show type of thing with him. This way he'll always have fresh content going up that's fast and easy to deliver. Should be cool. Time will tell how effective this is.

He was very tired after all the preparation and running the event, so extremely generous to do that.

I'll watch it back soon and see how it turned out. If the sound and lighting is ok etc... I'll make it an episode.

How do I get my videos to rank on YouTube

I just thought a real example would be better than a made up one and you can also check how well it works for real over on Youtube, especially if you type in the question and the break down of the question in the tags. You can also find out what doesn't work so well on a new video too I guess.

How do I get my videos to rank on YouTube

First thing to consider is what keyword, phrase, question you want it to be ranked for. Basically what will someone who is looking for what your video will give them type in to search for it.

This is actually a cut and paste of a file I sent to Zaki Ameer (a friend and client of mine) for him to use on a video we made together so it will be ranked: Notice where our keywords are placed. We are going for Brand name - 'Dream Design Do'  also his own name - 'Zaki Ameer'  and a question - 'Why invest in existing established properties'. Plus the description was simply written so the reader knows what value they'll get from watching the video and to position Zaki as someone they really should listen to when it comes to property, all to inspire them to watch it, (views help it rank)

Once you decide what your keywords are, put them in your title, description and tags and also variations of those keywords. In this example I broke the question down (in the tags) to smaller phrases by removing a word at a time. 

And always put your link at the beginning of your text so that the only step they need to take to visit your website is click the link. Less steps for them the better. The viewer doesn't need to click 'Show More' to see the whole description and then find your link.

How do you publish an article on social media?

G'day Paul and Richard.

Great meeting you both at the event last night at SavvySME HQ

Like Richard said SavvySME can be used to publish your articles and is a great place to start as it has built in features to share it automatically to your social networks.

RE: writing the content: One way I've used is to make bullet points of what you want to talk about then record yourself talking about each point in turn.

Next type out what you said word for word only editing the ums and aahs and when your sentences aren't quite complete. This way it reads like you talk and feels like someone speaking to you rather than formal. Much more likely to connect with the reader. Put your bullet points in bold in the article like sub headings so people who skim can still get the gist of your article.

Who do you use for your SEO?

Real question: What do SEO companies actually do these days? with getting backlinks being far less important as it used to be unless they're from another site in your industry.

Having great content consistently posted on your site with your keyword/phrase of choice in your title, description, <h1> tags, url, and at the beginning and sometimes the end of your text on your page is all you need to do.

I'd reckon go for an SEO company who creates content for you and even better, with you. Video, text and audio and pick one that works with you to create content that's based on your real-world knowledge and experience of your industry. Have them interview you on video and use those in depth interviews as video content, to write article content and make downloadable audios from them.

Social Media

Do you use YouTube to generate new business?

I was commissioned by Zaki Ameer to do an interview series about his property investing business. Just asking him specific questions as a set up for him to discuss certain aspects of how to do his thing. We did 10 videos and he's really happy with how they turned out. He uses them on facebook and on his website etc... 1000's of views.

He must make money from it because he's asked me to do a once a week one question on going show type of thing with him. This way he'll always have fresh content going up that's fast and easy to deliver. Should be cool. Time will tell how effective this is.

Website

What are common problems SMEs face with their websites?

Something I come across all the time is business owners who have no time to create content, be active on social networks or forums and don't want to learn how to 'do website stuff', yet they want organic rankings. They set their website up 12 years ago and have just left it alone. Even when they pay for SEO to be done the user experience of their website let's them down. The old online brochure of a website doesn't really cut it these days I don't reckon...
