Episode-67- The Unique Qualities of Video for Marketing, Selling and Building Brand

Filed under: Podcast — Tags: , , — JackSpirko @ 7:18 pm

Back in 2008 convincing companies that video especially on YouTube had a role in promoting their businesses was an up hill battle.  I can’t tell you how many uptight dumbasses in suits told me how YouTube was “unprofessional” or “sophomoric” and “didn’t apply to their business”.  Today almost every company that told me this has an online video presence.  People love video today and most agree that it…

  • Improves conversion
  • Builds brands
  • Creates followers
  • And promotes viral marketing

Very few marketers especially in the corporate space though seem to understand WHY it does these things so well.  Today I am going to explain the why behind them, tell you how to maximize that and help you get over “fear of the camera” if you suffer from it.

Episode-64- Part Two of Monetizing Your Website

Filed under: Podcast — Tags: , , , — JackSpirko @ 5:58 pm

Yesterday I got an email making a suggestion that I do an episode on Aweber and put a button next to my Aweber banner so people considering buying it would be more likely to do so.  It was a WELL DUH moment.  How about using video to market all your affiliate programs.  Tune in today to hear about that and to hear about some other methods of monetization including eBooks (in a new way) and more on membership site models.

Episode-44- Monitizing a Website With Multiple Income Streams

So I got a lot of requests on this topic in the past few days.  I keep telling you not to build your primary income streams on third party systems such as AdWords or Amazon, it is fine to make some money with them but the core of your revenue should be some form of direct sales.  One listener in particular owns a website called, Forgotten Weapons.  This listener has been generating tons of good content and now gets 30,000-60,000 visitors a month and is kind of stuck in a “where do I go from here mode”.  Listen today as I explain some ideas for monetizing this website.

I am happy to do this with any website as long as it has good quality and consistent content on it and has built up a reasonable amount of traffic.  The key though is after you hear today’s show you should pretty much be able to look at any site and do it for yourself.

Make no mistake this is a DEEP topic and we will cover many areas of it both with direct and third party revenue, both areas have a place.  I am sure not about to send Amazon.com their checks back, so I am not bashing third parties just pointing out how critical it is to build direct income streams and not be dependent upon a third party who can change the rules on you.

Episode-33- The Skinny on Video Tags for YouTube and other Video Websites

Filed under: Podcast — Tags: , , , — JackSpirko @ 12:06 pm

A member at JackSpirko.com recently asked if I would please do a video and answer questions such as…

  • Why are tags important
  • How do you make YouTube tags with multi word phrases
  • What effect do tags have on video search
  • What effect do tags have on SEO in general
  • What effect does tagging have on “video associations”

Tagging is a simple but often overlooked aspect of video marketing and seo with YouTube video for the standard results on search engines like Google.  Tagging alone won’t work wonders on video but proper tagging with some forethought and key word research can take your video marketing to a higher level.
