Do you want to turn your website into a perpetual cash cow? Then you need traffic. Lots of traffic. All things being equal, the more traffic you have, the more money you will make. It’s a simple equation. But how do you go about getting more traffic?
Offer to help pay for a professional. That spreads the blame and is known as a CYA ploy. Then you can say the professional will take care of the major work and you will merely add touches of cinema verite.
When I do click through your offer, make sure that it’s ready! There is nothing more discouraging than to order something that I believe will help me in my business, and learn that I must wait a few weeks for it to be ready. If it’s an advance order, state it clearly so it’s known ahead of time.
Paid targeted 100% opt-in e-mail blasts: – There are advertising companies that have huge lists of 100% opt-in subscribers. 100% opt-in means that every one of their subscribers has agreed to receive promotional e-mails from them on the topics of their choice and this is how it is targeted. This method has proven its effectiveness, but there are a lot of fake companies out there that claim 100% opt-in, but actually have much lower opt-in percentages or even not at all. This is important because you don’t want to pay for a campaign that ends up in the junk or spam folder of the users e-mail. Be careful and deal with the reputable ones only.
Making a video of a wedding needs not only your highest skills as a videomaker in italy but also a large measure of tact, diplomacy, organizing skills and physical fortitude.
It is almost impossible to cover a wedding single handed and that you need two camera operators working to a well-thought-out plan. They must work in tandem, be unobtrusive and yet not miss any of the important shots. Indeed, I feel happier with three cameras working and mobile phone connections and even then I am not a contented lad until I have delivered the finished product.
6) Ping.fm: I want to add Ping.fm to this list, because many people don’t know about it. Similar to TubeMogul, it lets you post 140 character text messages to multiple social networking sites at once. Again, you have to sign up for the individual social networking sites, but it is worth the investment of time to do it. It will post to Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, MySpace, WordPress blogs, Blogger blogs, and so much more – all for FREE.
No matter which method you decide to use, embedding your own affiliate link in or on the video will help you “level the playing field.” Ask your readers and viewers to pass on the video to make it go viral. As long as they pass on the video that is on your page, they’ll be passing on the embedded affiliate links as well.
