September 8th, 2008, 12:15 PM #1Questions/Advice about videos on Shareasale
I recently added a couple of videos on shareasale, I am not sure how effective this will be or if I should spend a lot of time on these. I have a few question listed below:
1. What is the best size? (228x218, 331x316 or 445x425)
2. They offer “cue points” which at a certain point in the video a sections slides out (reminds me of an annoying pop-out) is this a good thing or just annoying like I am thinking?
3. How long is to long? We have some fairly good videos of our authors talking about their books but how long do people really want to stick around?
I would really like to see what others think about these and possibly some suggestions or any thoughts you all might have.
Thanks so much,

I moved your post from the Midnight Cafe (for general affiliate discussions) to the Shareasale forum since it is about a specific Shareasale service.
I also removed the signature you manually added, you get signature and PM privileges after 250 posts.Deborah Carney

The only thing that I can really give feedback on is the cue points. My members have reported that they really like them. Although the linking functionality is important, I think that the additional information is even better. I like to use it to show additional designs for items that I am demonstrating. Or give a little bit of text description like what sizes something comes in.
I'm finding myself adding more and more of my new videos to SAS for the sole purpose of being able to use the cue points.

SAS should rename the "cue points" to something catchy and trademark it.

Personally, I think when you start getting over 2 min or so, you start to lose your audience. Your subject would have to be extremely interesting in order to hold attention longer then that. That doesn't seem like a long time, but you really can show and say alot in 2 minutes.

I agree now if I can just get our long winded authors to stop in 2 minutes it would be great. Thanks for your input.
I think you should win the contest with "Clickalicious"

Ya, I've never seen you cook so fast as you did in that video. LOL But, it kept interest because people wanted to see the end result, without that, talking about spices for more then 2 minutes would have been totally boring.
