Intro To Video Blogging
Video blogging is here to stay. It is the new social media marketing and there is an unlimited potential to climb the search engines with video blogging since Google has is working on developing ways to read the video and rank it. They are always evolving their algorithms. I hired a coach to help me with my video blogging and we are working on some amazing projects that we plan to roll out this year.
We added video blogging to our 2010 business plan. Our goal is to be actively engaged in video blogging.
I much prefer to write my posts so of course, that is not going to go by the wayside but we are fully embracing video blogging as an additional option for viewers and searchers.
Eileen Hsu invited me to join her video blogging group on Active Rain. We are challenging each other to pick it up a notch and just start posting our video posts. When I write a post, the words just flow naturally and I can go back and correct the words easily. Video blogging is much more transparent because if you are like me, you don't have time to sit at the movie editor all day long trying to get it just right and re-filming over and over again because you made a funny face, touched your nose or licked your lips. Talk about transparency! I tend to just post it all RAW! If I had to make it perfect, it would never get uploaded!
I even pronounced Eileen's name wrong in my Intro to video blogging post below. I know how to say her last name, but it just did not come out right. Oh Well! You are going to get to hear and see all my mistakes! That is just the way I am going to embrace myself and video blogging.
Don't go too hard on me. I am really not looking for criticism because I went to broadcasting school many moons ago for a short time so I know what I am doing wrong. I am too close to the camera, my fat chin is too obvious and there are tricks I can use to hide the chin thing going on. I am harder on myself than you will ever be.
What I wanted to show you here is to just get started video blogging about something, anything, to start getting comfortable with the process. I am using my Mac book pro webcam in these videos and then I added the titles and transitions in IMovie- which I love! There is so much more you can do in the movie editing section but again, I will do a little at a time. First, I need to just do the basics to get used to that and then as I get faster and faster we can start jazzing it all up more and more.
Please sign in to your YouTube account, then watch my video, rate my video with the star rating below the video, then favorite the video and add a comment. These are just a few of the tips to get videos to climb the ranks of YouTube. Google likes the YouTube videos that are highest on the YouTube channels.
