Video Blogging = Vlogging. Why is it so powerful?
Posted on January 12, 2012 by @mqtodd
This post is as much about giving myself a rev up as you.
Whenever I put out some video content I get a lot of praise. I am sure that I connect with people than by just putting some thoughts down on a page. It really does not take so much time to do it and it is something we all should aim at at doing once a week at least.
People want to know the real you. Where you live. The sound of your voice, your accent. Whether that profile pic on Facebook is airbrushed or taken 3 years ago! They will know and remember you once they have seen you on video. Even once. If you do it from your home a few times they may even think you have hosted them there. It really is that powerful/
This is the age of content marketing and a time where broadband access is growing. You Tube is now a social network where your videos will get seen and shared more and more and more by your friends and their friends.
So how to do it? Plus a bit more on why. Please watch!
Look forward to seeing your videos. Do not seek perfection. Be you and share your knowledge and thoughts in the most powerful way out there.You never know you may be shared everywhere and really what is the worst thing that can happen! By far my most successful video was a random thing I shot while waiting to meet a friend in downtown Tokyo. For reasons completely unknown to me it has attracted over 20,000 views and qualified my channel to be a “You Tube” partner. Make money from advertising and display full length films and more. If I had never shot and uploaded it all this would never have happened so you just never know.It might only take some celebrity or other influencer to tweet a link and bang off it goes getting shared worldwide. You have to have your line in the water to catch a fish.
I said that I too need a rev up about doing this at least once a week. It is now 2 weeks since I made a video so I am off to do one.
I have no idea why, maybe because I talk about it a lot, but right now I am ranked second as a +K influencer about video on Klout. If this post has made you think I would love your support with a click and a tweet on these blue letters and maybe I can hit number 1.
Thanks so much
Looking forward to seeing the real you…
