    YouTube: You’ve got to use it, so put some effort into getting the best possible results.

    People always ask me how my blog is doing and their follow-up question is, “Are you making any money at it?” I have an answer to that question and it’s got 11 parts but here’s the bottom line: I’m having fun creating a business out of what I’m passionate about. It’s so wonderful to have “made up a job for myself” and doing all of the items on this list.

    I’m thankful every day to have the opportunity to do this. I love that people read what I’ve written – thank you!! I love interacting with readers and especially when I get to meet them in person. I love how my blog/business is creating opportunities for me that I otherwise would not have had. I love setting my own schedule. Neither Martha Stewart nor Oprah Winfrey have called me with any show offers but I’m sure it’s just right around the corner.

    Last Updated: August 11, 2012

    by Amber.

    I’m often asked how do I manage to come up with so many topics and am able to publish so many articles while still being a Mom, wife and homemaker. I have fresh content every day with the exception of Sundays and the occasional Saturday. How do I find the time? What could I give as blogging tips to help others have more content when they are running out of ideas?

    My secret recipe? I have an array of blogging tips that help me to always have topics and content waiting to be written on the sidelines for whenever I draw a blank or have a break in my review schedule. But one of the easiest blogging tips is to always have my camera with me! Quite literally, I keep it with me when we go to Grandma’s house, when we go to the store, when we go out to eat! Everywhere! That way I am always ready to capture all that life delivers.

    Last Updated: August 8, 2012

    Promoting your message with video (also known as video blogging or video marketing) on the Internet is about to become even more popular as companies like Sony, Apple and Google continue to offer connected TV’s and integrated TV devices.

    And, whilst in my view it’s too early to predict that online video will wipe out traditional TV, if you’re an entrepreneur, coach, speaker, author or consultant wanting to broadcast your message to a wider audience, the shift in how you advertise your business is taking place right now, and even if you decide not to get on board with video marketing or video blogging, your competitors will.

  • Written by Comments Off on Five Tips From Leading Companies for Online Video Marketing
    Last Updated: August 6, 2012

    by Edgardo Nazario.

    More companies are using online video to boost their marketing outreach, and with good reason. Customers are now using video to educate themselves on products and services before they buy, and that extends across both the consumer and business-to-business markets.

    One survey by Eccolo Media in 2011 found that buyers of technology products ranked video third behind only brochures/data sheets and whitepapers as the type of content they consume most frequently when evaluating a purchase. Video, in fact, got a higher response rate than case studies, which suggests just how valuable the medium has become.

    The more companies pick up on the video marketing trend, the more information becomes available on which video tactics produce the best results and which technologies drive the greatest efficiencies.

    Here are tech tips and tricks from five companies that are making online video work for them. By learning from the experiences of these first movers, the marketing industry as a whole can increase the effectiveness of its video use and improve online video marketing results.

    As a blogger who blogs a great deal for myself and for the Vancouver Internet Marketing firm I work for, I often get questions from those starting out on what tips I’d recommend for the newbies. And I’m more than happy to help out with a few basic tips of my own.

    But first I’d like to point out that you can learn a lot about successful blogging techniques just from looking at the high-ranking blogs in your niche. Look for:

    • How they are engaging readers
    • Frequency of blog publishing
    • The experts they call on to provide professional advice and help

    However, in the meantime, here are my personal tips for newbie bloggers…

  • Written by Comments Off on Blogging Tips: Good Planning = Good (and Easy) Blogging
    Last Updated: July 26, 2012

    by Beth.

    As we’ve mentioned before, planning increases your chances of writing an effective, successful blog, and part of that planning is creating a list of good topics for each post.

    When you’re brainstorming topics, there’s one simple question to ask yourself as you select your blog post topics: Will readers feel they wasted their time after reading the piece?

    If the answer is no, you’ve got yourself a keeper. This question also works well from a search engine optimization (SEO) standpoint: If your readers find a topic interesting and useful, the search engines likely will, too.
