    We got featured on You Tube! Whooo Hooo!
    Today I went to go check my email, and I found out that one of our Bible Craft videos got featured (i.e. put on the homepage of You Tube) This was really neat, Praise the Lord, because we just started using video as a way of enhancing our site and site content! This was such a blessing, and we're really glad we started to add video to our sites!

    I'm not sure how long it'll be up there for, but as of 9pm Est, we're the last video on the left (yeah we're on the bottom....but hey.....we made it right?)

    This is the actual video, incase they take it off the homepage soon.

    Anyone else use video in their site?

    Well there ya go! Nicely done, Congrats Valerie.

    Hopefully this will be the first of many such advancements, you should be proud and 13,868 views so far, that's not to shabby either.
    Continued Success,

    Way to go. Do the google ads really work for you? You might want to try out popshops. They have some heavies like JoAnn . com, etc.

    Yes, I use video sometimes. I have been in on the hulu.com private beta. There is content there that is exclusive to hulu only and it can be embedded into sites. Works great so far.

    Thanks everyone, I'm still so excited about it!

    I did see a bit of traffic increase on the site, the best traffic I've had on it since I launched it a couple of months ago. It wasn't a whole lot, but still, what great exposure! And it did result in an increase in youtube and newsletter subscribers which I think is really important.

    Sfcom- Since the sites still new, I haven't got much affiliate links up there, there's a few from Shareasale and CJ, but I'll definitly check out PopShops (thinking I've done one for another site in the past but never quite implemented it) Hulu.com sounds interesting as well, it's in beta huh?

    Anyway, thanks everyone for the support, I just had to share it...., I even called my brother to brag a little about big sis on You Tube. Ha Ha

    In Christ,

    Valerie

    Congrads Valerie! That's awesome!

    26,000+ views? Incredible. I can only imagine what 1% brought in.

    Praising God with you.

    Thanks for sharing this very nicely done "inspirational" video!

    What type of video editor software do you use?

    I signed up for Hulu, and I've been watching it all night! Thanks for the heads up on that one!


    As far as editing software, I only used Windows Movie Maker, which I think came with my computer. I bought some software called Pinnacle Studio 10 or something, but I've yet to install it on my PC. I'm sure there are lots more possibilities with that one!


    Anyway, It was really neat getting featured, and thanks guys for the support, I can't wait to make some more videos...even got me a tripod the other day

    In Christ,

    Valerie

    Glad to help. As I said before, one of the big benefits is that you can embed it in your sites and since in beta, it is content that not everyone and their brother has. Have fun with it, but don't get caught up in watching every episode of "The Office"...it can be a real time waster.
