Steve that is very interesting!

Can you share with me some of your insight as to your goal of your video? What would you like it to do for you?

My main goal is to raise my search engine presence. Itís very easy to raise SEP with a local presence but very difficult for a global presence. I have it linked to my Twitter, Facebook, blog and MySite accounts.

Iím getting about 1,000 hits to my site a week and want to get it to 5,000 (my next goal), and then keep growing.

The account I have with VidioGoRound.com ($49.95) allows me to create 50 videoís a month so I can use it the same way I use my blog. Itís easy to use and has 6 different characters and voices.

I have not used tags as of yet, but, am learning about them and how to use them.

I posted it on YouTube about 3:00 this morning and have had 17 views so far. Have had 91 hits to my site since midnight but don't know if any of them are from the video.

Steve

There are a few reasons.

(1) Available time
(2) I donít have a video camera or experience in using one
(3) This way is easy to edit without re-doing everything
(4) At $49.95 per month itís cheaper than a video camera
(5) Itís a good way to start and get a little experience
(6) I can work on it in stages (when not on calls or general life interruptions)
(7) I can create it in a word processor, process and edit it, and then copy and paste it into the program
(8) I can use content in blogs I have already creted

As time goes by, I get better organized, and more at ease with the process of making videos, I probably will use my real face and voice.

Steve

I would guess Steve has given him an office job to start, wait till he is put in the field for a few days, it will take more than Organic toothpaste to keep those teeth white, especially from whincing in pain laying sod or spreading top soil....lol

Better yet, let him plant all those flowers Steve's better half bought, that should be a good start.

I didn't even think about that. But that makes sense. It should increase traffic!

I'd love to see you doing them, but I know how time consuming they are to make.
