I know one of the perks of video marketing is not having to write as much. However, it really irritates me when marketers don’t even give me the option of reading their content. I saw this email in my inbox with content that I was really interested in. The content was in video format. I thought, okay no problem, I can just click on the video and watch it. The video was not that long. The big problem that I had was that the video kept stopping. It was very hard to watch. If they would have also provided a pdf file that contained the same info as the video, I still would have gotten the information they were trying to convey. Now I will never know. Moral of this story: Give your potential clients at least two ways to consume your information.
Okay so I caved in. I saw this email in my inbox about niche websites that all I had to do was upload a file to my server and I’d have a monetized site all ready to go. That offer was too good for me to pass up. Let me explain why. One of the things I’ve been working on is building up my passive income. These sites already have adsense and some clickbank and amazon programs already in place. All you have to do is change a few fields and upload the site to your server. Now you should probably change some of the colors and add some more content just so your site looks differently from everyone else’s. Don’t wait until your site is perfect to launch it. That is the worst mistake people make is waiting until things are perfect. You miss out on money doing that. So here’s how you can take advantage of today’s Wacky Weekend Dimesale.

I must confess something. I really don’t like the $1 trial offers. I almost always forget to cancel and wind up getting charged the whole membership fee. However, when I saw this offer, I actually paid a little bit more attention to it. I was talking to someone on Facebook about affiliate marketing a few minutes before I read the email so it seemed like God was trying to tell me something. What exactly am I referring to? It’s a training program/forum about affiliate marketing called Wealthy Affiliate University. Don’t let the title scare you off. They are not suggesting that you can become a wealthy affiliate overnight. Quite the contrary. Over and over again they remind you that it takes time to build a successful affiliate business.
I always complain about how google does stuff. However, this time I think they are on to something. They are rolling out this priority inbox feature for select gmail users (don’t ask me how they determine who gets to test it first). I saw the notice when I went to check my email earlier today. They have even created a cute youtube video explaining how to use it. Here is the video. I just had to share it as an example of a good way to use video in your business.
