Are you an affiliate marketer that promotes tangible products and are looking to incorporate video marketing into your marketing efforts?
In the age of multimedia, it’s important to understand video marketing for tangible affiliates. Many people shy away from video marketing because they’re intimidated by it.
This is very common. Not everyone is comfortable with producing videos.
But there are many ways you can do it – and once you start using video, you’ll see how much it can bring to your business.
The easiest way to implement video marketing is to embed Amazon’s videos right into your blog. These are videos that are produced for marketing specific products and many products – even books – have video trailers.
Using an Amazon video doesn’t require you to produce your own video. You only have to share work that’s been done by professionals to help market and promote a specific product.
This free tool can be invaluable.
You can also create your own videos. For example, you can show a product, how it works, and review it while you share it on camera.
You can also make a video that shows your progress. For example, for a weight loss product you can show before and after videos.
While this may seem a little scary at first, you’ll find that readers really respond to getting to know you through video.
Not only will you reach more people who prefer to see a video over reading text, but you’ll begin to develop a stronger relationship with your readers and they’ll begin to trust you more.
You can also make videos with just your own voice just sharing what is on your screen. Not everyone makes videos where they appear in them and that is just fine.
When making a video, it’s important to remember a few tips.
First, make sure you have good lighting. A dark video is hard to see and isn’t inviting.
Using natural light will give you the best video images. Sound quality is also important.
You also need to remember professionalism. You want to come across as someone who is a professional with a business.
Instead of making your video off the cuff, make sure you plan what you’re going to say and how you’re going to present a product.
It will be easier to create a video when you have something prepared to present.
While you want to be professional, don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through.
A little humor or self-deprecation can be attractive to a large audience of regular people.
They’ll see you as a real person that can be trusted.
Finally, you’ll always want to brand your video with your logo or URL so that if someone else uses it or shares it, they’re branding it for you.
As your video gets passed along, your business is naturally promoted.
Using a watermark is a good idea.
Videos are powerful tools when you’re promoting tangible affiliate products. Make sure you take advantage of them in your own marketing plan.
It takes time to produce videos, but they can be a great addition to your existing marketing efforts.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day 🙂
To Your Success,
About Nicole Lynn from Resources for Online Success
As a free spirit, I always had the deep desire to break free from the cubicle-zombie-robot world and have full control over my time, income and life, without having to have permission from a boss.
I was tired of being just another “number” that was expendable, no matter how dependable I was or how hard I worked (just to help build someone else’s wealth and make their dreams come true).
I wanted to create MY freedom…not build it for someone else.
Unexpectedly in 2008, severe neck issues forced me out of the 9 to 5 corporate world rat race (before I was actually ready financially, which really sucked a lot and was pretty scary).
It’s better to have a 2nd income already rolling and coming in regularly before losing your main source of income, but I had no control over what happened.
In 2012, after spending years trying to figure out how to make money online (all on my own) and only being able to make a few dollars here and there…I joined an online business community called Wealthy Affiliate and have been doing affiliate marketing from home ever since.
A few years later, I also became a member of The Home Business Academy.
I now use both resources daily to increase my income.
I enjoy earning recurring monthly income using the affiliate marketing business model because I can work from anywhere and on my own schedule, while being able to take care of my health.
I aim to share these resources with you so that you can also have success online and most of all…so that you can have total freedom from the 9-5 grind.
