I make them with sony vegas studio, but windows movie maker would do just the same - comes installed on all pc's.
I just load a picture.... put some music on it and add text. Each video will be slightly different in length... this is important.
So far, I've uploaded 18 videos the past 3 days, and took the advice to change the picture in each video instead of using the same one. Simple and quick enough.
My target city is Natchez, MS. And a quick search will show my website is now also on page 1 for Natchez Lawn Service...
If you care to see the results so far, the current keywords I'm targeting with video are:
Lawn Mowing Service
Lawn Care Service
Grass Mowing Service
And the locations are:
Lake St. John
Just combine the location with any of the keywords above and search google, and you'll see what's happening so far.
Although the results and rankings are not just limited to these particular keywords.
The search results will vary with each keyword string.
Some will just show 1-2 videos, some will show 1-2 videos + the website, and some will show 1-2 videos + 1-2 Maps Listings + the website..
For example: grass mowing service natchez
Pulls up 2 Maps listings + 1 Video
lawn mowing service in natchez
Pulls up 1 Video at the Bottom of the page
lawn care service lake bruin
Pulls up 2 Maps listings, the website, my Youtube Channel link, plus 2 Videos
So it's progressing along quite well.
Other than creating the current videos, the past 48 hours I added a specific page on the website for each of the target areas, ie. http://bruinlawn.com/vidalia-lawn-service.html
And Friday night I submitted an article for syndication to create backlinks to my site. It hasn't hit yet, but when it does, I expect to see a nice jump in rankings for the website and the subpages.
Another important thing I did was create and link to the Facebook, Google+, Twitter, and youtube pages from my site, along with creating a link from each of those properties to http://bruinlawn.com
