Summer Video Challenge, Show Us Your Local & Bring in the Juice

YouTube Thursdays for August 8th, 2013 - Bob Crane's most excellent contest to promote local videos for marketing. Way to go Bob, and thanks Kerrie!

I may even do a few videos before the deadline for the extra points - but ALWAYS do video for the extra SEO - it really works.

Summer Video Challenge, Show Us Your Local & Bring in the Juice

We all know how great local events are for attracting clients and bringing in the Google Juice and we have been told how much Google likes Video, so this Challenge is going to combine the two for a great dose of SEO for all of our businesses.

Our focus in this challenge is to shoot three short videos of something local and something showing some Summer Fun.

The Challenge

The subject of the videos can be anything local, fun and outdoors.

              A favorite hiking trail

              A summer celebration

              A great local park

              A cool neighborhood

              An Active Rain Meetup in Stevens Point

              Something local that sells your town is always a winner

              And lots more summer fun sights and events

Each video should be short, between 1-2 minutes.

Each Video will be accompanied with its own blog post.

Points

Since video is a tough obstacle for so many bloggers, and it is soo good for the Google Juice, Kerrie agrees that we should bribe our entrants well, with 800 points per video blog for a total of 2400 if you produce all three videos in separate blog posts.

After you complete all three videos and blogs, post the urls in the comments below by 11:59 pm September 7th, 2013 and then sit back and watch the points add up on Active Rain and your Ranking on Google rise with each video.

 

 

If you are having any problems embedding videos into your blog posts, try this method or drop me a line and I can try to help.

Debb, ever since I read that post, I've been on the lookout for something fun to videotape but I've had a busy week so I wasn't too successful thus far.

Debb, what a darling little video! I was a bit worried that Jack was gonna trip up our bicycler, but nope! I still haven't figured out my video on my big camera...too bad I can't use my canoe video and call it good...that one does get hits, because I have clients that mention having watched it.

Good for you for spotlighting Bob! (He's such a cool guy).
