    It is now possible to make video advertisements for a fraction of the cost of television advertising. Online hosting is completely free on your own website or using sites like YouTube, so the only cost is on video production.

    When it comes to competing with larger corporations, small businesses struggle to compete in the marketing and advertising arena.

    While a mom-and-pop store may not have a $1 million advertising budget, a great equalizer has recently entered the scene: the [easyazon-link asin=”0470598883″]viral video[/easyazon-link].

    While it’s true that not every video will reach the “viral” superstardom of YouTube favorites like Blendtec’s iPhone “Will it Blend?” clip, which has garnered more than 3 million hits, video can help you market your business in a unique way without spending a lot of money.

    Nathaneal Mohr, a small business marketing coach, said while many small businesses readily acknowledge that video marketing is something they should be trying out, most are confused on how to begin.

    “With confusion, people usually stay still,” said Mohr. “They’re probably a little intimidated and have so much on their plate already that they don’t want to risk the time and money spent in an area they don’t understand.”

    I recently undertook a guest [easyazon-link asin=”0470616342″]blogging[/easyazon-link] challenge for my blog. The main purpose of the challenge was to market my blog and increase the amount of visitors I will be able to get daily as a result of that guest post for months to come.

    While I’ve been used to writing guest posts for big blogs with the intention of seeing huge spike in traffic and subscribers to my blog, I decided to take things to the next level and write a lot of guest posts for smaller blogs with the hope of benefiting in the future. In other words, I knew I might not get up to 5 visitors for every single blog I wrote for, but my intention was to use the guest post to drive me hundreds of daily visitors for years to come.

    Video is everywhere these days—online, e-mails and even on your mobile devices. About 28 percent of people watch video online every day, according to a July 2011 Pew Research Center report. As a small business, you should be using this trend to your advantage by incorporating video into your marketing toolkit.

    Video broadens the spectrum on how you can communicate. You can use it to create a wide variety of engaging content such as product tours, how-to guides, user testimonials—basically anything relevant you can think of.

But it’s not as hard as you think, and you don’t need to spend tons of money. Like any other marketing campaign, you do need to invest time to plan and execute.

    Today, I’d like to give you access to my video marketing presentation. If you use video marketing, or want an alternative, easier way to get on the first page of Google search results, you’ll want to watch the video presentation.
