April 1st, 2008, 09:06 PM #1So Excited About Videos!
I am just bursting at the seams tonight. I finally found a way to work videos into my reward site. I had been thinking about it for months and trying to find the way that would work best. I didn't want it to feel forced that every now and again we would have a product review or demonstration. So we started an entire videoblog with places for demos, announcements, reviews, etc. We even did a "live" drawing on it today to give away a Disney Cruise!
No one I talked to tonight was nearly as excited as I was, so I figured I would post with the people who "get" what it is like when you finally see something come together on your site.

What get's me is when you work with people that should be in the know that still aren't in the know so you still need to come to abestweb to be with people in the know. lol Congrats on your success!

Congrats on making it all come together! It really is sweet when you brainstorm an idea, and it finally comes to life on your site.

I sat in the video session at Affiliate Summit in Vegas. Everyone keeps saying that video is going to be "the next big thing". It is wise to get in on video now. I am glad you found a way to incorporate it in to your site. They are fun to make if you enjoy doing it.[B][SIZE=3][COLOR=Blue]Dina Riccobono[/COLOR][/SIZE][/B]

If anyone out there has been hesitant to give it a shot, I highly suggest it. And for those merchants who are already doing it, I will be looking for you.

Good for you Helpingmoms!
You're right to be excited! Video is a new online frontier that will get bigger and more important this year and beyond.
The success of Youtube should have given folks a hint of what was to come more than a year ago.

I bought a new HD camcorder as a result of that session and have been a video wannabe junkie since I have returned. Viddler rocks. Magnify .net has potential and I even loaded my first YouTube video to try things out.
Congrats Helping MomS on achieving your goal!

I had lunch with Tim (AskTheBuilder is the site) after that session and he is wonderful to talk to. The people at our table were just listening to everything he had to say because it all made sense. Make videos about what you know, put them on your site and traffic will come
Glad you found a way to incorporate it! I have a new program coming where we plan to make videos (from slideshows) an integral part of the marketing campaign. Hopefully the Shareasale video encoding or what ever they are planning will be ready soon tooDeborah Carney

Great news! I had my first sale today as a direct result of my videos. How do I know? Check out the comment:

Okay, if I just ordered $20.00 of nuts then I can testify to the fact that the video-blogging will do wonders for sales! LOL! Geez, Iíve never wanted a cashew more in my life.
YEA!! (BTW...It was for NutsOnTheNet, and it was my own super low tech video of my purchase a few weeks ago)

Ahhh, video, sweet video. One of my emerging projects this year, totally unrelated to affiliate marketing or my consulting biz or PPC or my advertising / promoting of any kind (but I as many here know, I do video ads for my other biz's already). More diversity of income and reduced risk, gives me greater peace of mind and lets me deduct a lot more fun travel as well. I bask in your excitement for it helpingmoms, like a ginormous hot tub built for creative people having fun and recording it all. :-)

Helpingmoms, that's wonderful!
Keep playing with the medium and you'll soar to new heights. There's a reason TV blew radio out of the water. :-)
