    I got a bookmark this blog. it seems extremely helpful very beneficial.

  4. I’ve used Anitmoto.com with great success for making web videos and also check out Prezi.com

  5. I think video marketing is a good way to expand your sales of products not found on your website. I`m thinking that it can compliment your website earnings if done right.

  6. Yes it’s true that video marketing is one of the most effective forms of marketing right now… However, it is important to point out that just making a video and putting it up is not enough… The competition is growing in this sector everyday though so, as you’ve pointed out, your videos need to be optimized for the search engines just like written content and next in importance is, you need to have a marketing strategy! (and this is where most people drop the ball…)

    Thanks for sharing this great content. I am already aware of the results that people are getting with video marketing but I have not focus my effort on this method.

    I feel it works best when re-purpose the current content that I have into video and submit it to video directories.

    Thanks for the gentle reminder that this method still works.
