As a marketer we can really become frustrated with the changes Google and some of the other companies throw our way when we are trying so desperately hard to bring in masses of traffic. Often when I hear of some other marketers raking in the bit bucks from affiliate sales due to organic traffic, I want to bang my head on a wall. How do they manage to stay ahead, how do they manage to not sweat when changes are made instead of crossing all fingers and toes and hoping that their site will not be slapped with the latest set of rules.
In the last few Google changes called the Penguin and Panda, I met people who both lost writing contract due to content mills being closed down to site owners who went from being on page one to page 100 or further. Weeks and years of work gone in the blink of an eye. Hundreds of dollars wasted to sites that were used to build back links and gain rankings. All a complete waste of time. It was with this latest one that I decided to take a break and re-prioritize. I realized that if I wanted to stay in business in the online world, I had to approach things in a whole new way and I had to be more diversified when it came to traffic. Search engines like Google are only one way to get traffic to your sites. If you do a little of this and that then you may find that traffic is coming in from a few corners and when one door is closed, the open windows will still keep your money coming in and your business still running.
One such avenue is video marketing. While article marketing has always been my specialty, video marketing definitely has it’s advantages. For one thing, there is no fear of duplicate content like with syndicated articles. You can still post up your video to numerous website that offer shared viewing and some even share their ad revenue with you as an added stream of income. This means that the more people you get viewing your videos the more chances you have to bring in a better income from both your own sales and affiliate earnings.
While you can make your own videos yourself using Windows Movie Maker or a similar program, this can be very time consuming. If you do not like your voice due to mumbling or being shy, you may have to pay someone else for their voice over. This can cost you around $25 to $50hr. And then once your video is made you have to spend even more time going and posting it up to all of the video sites, then bookmarking your video for even more people to find it. This can cost hours of time that you just do not have if you are trying to run your business. Not everyone has a huge marketing budget as well to outsource the task every month. For those such as I who need to budget both my time and my income tightly, Article Video Robot is the perfect choice!
