Using Video in Online Marketing
Videos are an integral part of online marketing. They are used effectively for product promotion, self-branding, product demonstration, creating online manuals, how-to clips and much more. The process of creating, editing and uploading videos is really quite simple and should not intimidate newcomers to online marketing.
The main issues one must address in video marketing is creating the video and preparing it for uploading. This is not as daunting a task as it seems. And the videos do not need to be well rehearsed productions. Even ad-lib videos can create a big impact in cyberspace. There are instances where people have shot videos using their mobile phones and have become instantaneous celebrities overnight. Additionally, the video equipment does not need to be upscale – though it should be capable of producing good sound and image quality. More important factors in creating appealing videos are being creative and genuine.
Preparing videos for uploading
Newcomer need not be intimidated by the upload process; video distribution sites have made this is easy as sending email. Most of the video sites provide facilities to convert video formats and prepare them automatically for viewing online. One need not worry about technicalities.

Remember that your online videos are actually an online marketing tool. The reason why videos make excellent online marketing tools is because search engines reference them based on title, description and keywords. So it is obviously important to choose the title carefully and to select relevant keywords.

This will add to your search engine ranking. Of course, there is always a possibility that the video can make you a celebrity. Wouldn’t that be cool!
