Let’s do it! I’ll continue Frassadys.com make money online,how to make money online series of discussions with Make Money Online,How to Make Money Online-δάσκαλος Could you speak to Video Marketing,we need to know more? The first issue before we get into some of the equipment issues is getting an MP4 video on You Tube or Facebook.
I’m not an expert, however,I can give some helpful hints,especially if you have Windows 8.1. The first step,obviously for most of you, is to upload the video from your iphone.* What makes it difficult, is the information is way ahead of the hype, and the hype is way ahead of useful and relatively easy-to-follow information.
Information overload becomes outdated,and you don’t have the time to go through tons of inapplicable and outdated videos and procedures.If you know how to upload to You Tube or Facebook from your iphone or Android device,then you’re in great shape.
Basically to upload to your PC, you attach your USB (universal serial bus) cable from your iphone to your PC.You can use your iphone’s battery cord,as that would be an USB cable.(Your phone’s battery also charges via the USB port on your PC.)
So open your computer “The PC” and right-click on the iPhone device and then select “Import pictures and videos”.A window will appear and here you choose some or all of your video and pictures. You can choose the “Pictures” or “Videos” folder into which you can import them.Generally,they’ll appear under “This PC” in the “Pictures” folder inside which will be a folder with the date on which you installed them.
Ok, so for our Make Money Online,How to Make Money Online video forum,if you double left click it will play the video,if you right click and do a pull down to “open with” click “Movie Maker”.
This will put the video into Movie Maker in Windows 8.1,from there at the
pulldown,choose the social destination website into which you want to install the video:Facebook,OneDrive,You Tube,Vimeo, or Flickr.If you upload to You Tube you’ll need to log in with your gmail login. If you upload to Facebook, then you need a Microsoft login and password.
The good piece about this,is that Movie Maker compresses your video for you with the H.264 codec, and can upload two-minute videos in just a couple of minutes. Compare this to uploading a MP4 2-minute Video directly into Facebook, it takes about an 1½hours.
Recall for this Make Money Online,How to Make Money Online video seminar, that mp4 videos have from 24 to 30 frames (that’s still pictures) per second. Instead of caching each individual picture, compression keeps only the significant changes from one sequential picture to another.
The codec (compression-decompression) is graded by the percent of change.I won’t go into the more sophisticated equipment here, but i’ll provide a link at the end of the seminar which will take you to a relevant video equipment page.¹ Bear in mind,that screen captures and a mic can produce a significant informational video.
Lighting is very important and the professional video makers say that outside natural light is the most conducive,inexpensive, and the easiest to get for recording videos.As far as video editing is concerned Windows Movie Maker 2012 is the number one gratis software.
Recall above, we’d talked about this as part of the Windows 8.1 collection. Here’s a link for the best free software: (http://www.techradar.com/us/news/software/applications/best-free-video-editing-software-9-top-programs-you-should-download-1136264). You’ll need to create very short and incomplete non-marketing videos.
What do you mean by that δάσκαλος?So for this Make Money Online,How to Make Money Online video seminar,the non-marketing video obviously emphasizes “how to” and “value add”,rather than direct selling products and services. “Short” means 2 to 3 minutes,preferably closer to two. “Incomplete” means you need to be very succinct, maybe 4 or 5 bullets,the initial interest concerning the product or service is articulated, but incomplete.
To get the full consummation or implementation,they’d have to visit your website or fanpage. Social video marketing is becoming increasing popular,so you record as you live your life,in normal everyday activities.Keep in mind,however, you never ad lib spur-of-the-moment videos, always record thought-out strategic video presentations.
What about video editing? You speak slow as you can always speed the video up in your video editing software. You also can remove pauses and gaffes very easily with your video editing software.Another very significant piece in video marketing is “branding”, which basically means,you float your banner in the video.
I’ll give you a significant resource for some significant procedures like reducing, floating a banner, and rendering videos. This is the Web Video University.com,if you subscribe to their website, they’ll send you 47 free training videos. ( go to http://www.webvideouniversity.com/ , this is a resource not an affiliate link.)
Further for this Make Money Online,How to Make Money Online video forum, a great “open source” and therefore free site for rendering software is Handbrake ( https://handbrake.fr/ ),you can download the software gratis,here are the primary merits:
Normally the size of the video is given in pixels such as 1280×720, 960×540, and 600×360. Handbrake also works with all the devices including the ipod,iphone,android,ipad,and apple tv,and tablets. Here you can make your videos web ready.You can use a teleprompter,many professional video marketers use a physical teleprompter,but you can get a gratis online teleprompter at CuePrompter.com – The Online Teleprompter.
You start the teleprompter like a video » ,you set the size of the font, and the speed of the scroll.Recall from what we’d discussed above, that the shorter the video presentation the better,not only because of the attention span issue,but also because shorter videos get higher google rankings. (Recollect Google owns You Tube.)
For this Make Money Online,How to Make Money Online video symposium, your new video will be packed with relevant data,however, it needs to be very succinct, with only one idea,one concept, and one solution.You can be very concise, as you use your editing software to edit out pieces that are not absolutely needed.
The solution might be down the sales funnel,maybe on your website, fanpage,or landing page,but after you’ve collected the enquirer’s email. Another aspect of video marketing to keep in mind is that like blogging,you must be consistent,so schedule a post once a week or at a set interval, the key is consistency,just like you must add articles to your blog at set intervals.
You Tube “Annotations” is where you add data to your video. Annotations allows modifications for:
Also, here,with the proper permissions,you can float your banner or URL.To create Website Annotations,i’ll give you the following from You Tube:
“To create an Associated Website annotation, first you need to complete these steps:
Make sure your account is verified and in good standing before adding an associated website. You can verify your account in youtube.com/verify
Add your website as an associate website in the Webmaster Tools. This will allow you to confirm that you own the site before you link it to your YouTube account.
Include this website as the ‘Associated Website’ in your YouTube account. Visit your Advanced Channel Settings and add the information in the ‘Associated website’ section.”
You can also edit exiting annotations.Under the video you’ll see,from left to right the symbols for:”info and settings”,”enhancements”,”Audio”,”Annotations” and “Captions”.
“Analytics” will give you views, minutes watched,engagements, demographics,basically all relevant graphed analytics. “View Manager” will list all your videos and summarize their views. Finally for this Make Money Online,How to Make Money Online video symposium, the other important categories in your you tube channel:
“Channel settings” is important because you set your keywords here.”Add to” is where you can create a new playlist. “Share” is where you share your video with Facebook,Google+,Tumblr,Twitter and others.Keep in mind that You Tube is a “social community”,so you need to know the platform. You need to consistently use all the You Tube arena.
Be sure to subscribe to other channels. Your “video manager” will get you to your channel. Here you’ll fine: “Status and features”, “Monetization”, “Upload defaults”,”InVideo Programming”, “Fan Finder”,and “Advanced”.
For a more in-depth look, take a look at: http://www.youtube.com/yt/creators/education.html?utm_source=YouTube&utm_medium=Yoda_News&utm_campaign=Yoda%20News%20-%20Creator%20Academy%20Main%20Page%20-%208%2F4%2F14%20-%20English, this link will take you to expert advise on how to navigate You Tube.
Ok φοιτητές,i’ll need to put a wrap on this seminar until next week. I’d like to leave you though with an interesting thought: “Life is indeed difficult, partly because of the real difficulties we must overcome in order to survive, and partly because of our own innate desire to always do better, to overcome new challenges, to self-actualize. Happiness is experienced largely in striving towards a goal, not in having attained things, because our nature is always to want to go on to the next endeavor.”

In this Frassadys’Make Money Online 102314 Newsletter,we’ll talk about The need for Strategic Planning for better marketing Campaigns and online Business Consistency.
A good marketing campaign is much like a successful meeting,before which you carefully make an agenda,divided into specific time frames for each relative subject,you make a list of the pertinent attendees,you choose a moderator,a scribe, a leader.You set the date,the start time,the end time.
And obviously you’ll send out the agenda in plenty of time before the meeting, so that participants can enter it into their calendars and resolve any conflicts ahead of schedule. You also have to decide on incentives,for example,will you serve lunch? You basically try to make the meeting as compelling and interesting as possible. Like a meeting, problems can arise in marketing Campaigns.
If you have poor planning or poor leadership the meeting can become more of a negative than a positive. Poor planning in a marketing Campaign can also result in a significant tailspin and the return on your investment can quickly become negligible. So in the business of internet marketing,keep in mind strategic planning can lower the risk significantly from a major hiccup in a Campaign or social media gaffe.
Think about how many companies have seen a drop in sales after a social media blunder,or a lack of Campaign planning. To prevent negatives in your business from happening, and significantly lower the risk,you obviously need to incessantly evaluate your marketing efforts, and fix specific and general issues.
So two important issues are relevant here:tread careful around social media,be vigilant of all the money making parts of your business,so you can immediately adjust and right the ship.You know the goal here is not only to make money online,but to make more money online on a continual basis.
When you work out in the gym,you can progress in several different ways: more reps,hold the weight for a longer period,or add weight.You can add 1 pound to your weight,or add 1 rep, the key is to progress, you don’t want to regress. You never stay in the same place,you either progress ot regress. You’ll need to have the same orientation with your business.
Progression involves consistency in your return on investment your ROI. If you’re planning correctly,if you’re working the social media correctly,you’ll maintain reliable predictions. So is strategic planning involved with tracking?
If you’re on top of your game,you’ll know if your email list,your blog,or your social marketing platform is more successful. You’ll know the ROI from your compelling blog,the ROI from your email Campaign ,you’ll know what to expect in ROI from your next Solo Campaign.
Because you know the medium ,the vendor,the Solo Ads people,your indicators become more accurate and reliable,and reliability makes for a smooth consistent business,kind of like when you were on the job and you had a biweekly paycheck on which you could count. The stable part of predictability through planning,is that even though an egregious hiccup can temporarily impede you,it will never defeat you.
Yes strategic planning is involved in analyzation of CTRs,email clicks,and generally the advertising platforms that perform well.So you monitor,gauge,evaluate and modify going forward.Sure this is easy for this Frassadys’Make Money Online 102314 Newsletter to say.
We all know that doing is much tougher than saying.On the other hand, habits are ingrained by thought and repetition. As our mothers constantly reminded us to stay out of trouble and mind your manners,listen to your friend or teacher,always say “please” and “thank you”,respect other people’s property,clean up after yourself,eventually all social people start thinking about good manners,and yes they’ll eventually became deep-seated.
So you as business owners find what is consistently good for your business and then make that the norm. So finding what is consistently good is the inbred behavior, and that will lead to the predictability and stability in what is inherently never static, it is either progressing or regressing.
Another facet of stategic planning is the constant evaluation of your competitors.Always find and utilize great emails,obviously don’t copy, but use the idea to create your own unique piece. Check their sales funnel and how successful it is. Always do a stare and compare with other successful marketers in the same niche as yourself.
Remember the significance of branding and injecting your personality, your brand, into your work.The greatest inventors of all time, did not invent their transformative invention by himself (herself). Generally it was an accumulation of disparate persons that passed down relevant knowledge,until the “inventor” finalized it,this is truly the “straw that broke the camel’s back”.
Do you see my point? Human beings have always emulated each other.Remember differentiate to establish brand,but do what the leaders in the niche consistently do to make it work.Always copy techniques that work effectively,modify it for brand, but stick with the essential piece that works. You’ve seen the copy cat syndrome in many of the US’ most predominant industries.
Think about this after one predominant automobile manufacturer copied another predominant automobile manufacturer’s manufacturing process, what was the difference? You guessed it-brand. Successful processes and procedures are basically copied.
And major companies commit considerable resources to establishing their brand. Obviously,you always need to be testing and tracking every marketing endeavor,so you know exactly what is getting the progressive results.
The easiest way to keep track of the metrics in your business is to be sure you’re always using tracking links, which allow you to automatically track what works in your business. The best tracking software to use is called Ad Trackz Gold.

Ok we’ll need to put a wrap on this Frassadys’Make Money Online 102314 Newsletter- Strategic Planning for better marketing Campaigns. but i’ll leave you with some important words: You’ve got to find what you love and that is as true for work as it is for lovers.Your work is going to fill a large part of your life and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what what (sic) you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you’ve found it. Steve Jobs
Ok let’s talk about Make money online Frassadys 101514 Newsletter- Numbers can tell you what’s happening with your Biz,but avoid when talking to your Customer! You’ve seen it before as businesses will try to impress using totals and percentage of totals,and all kinds of numbers.
The large businesses are built on stats,but for most people they’re very booooring.Data per se has a way of putting people to sleep.I worked for years in Network Engineering and although interesting,especially configuring switches and routers, the numbers were tedious and the amount of information was mental overload.
Unless you’re a geek who loves figures,telling a story with numbers and equations,does not bode well for online marketers and online business owners. I mention “geek” and I mean everything positive,absolutely nothing negative, albeit,it takes a certain kind of person.
So you see what I’m saying for this Make money online Frassadys 101514 Newsletter,to communicate with an audience,in this case your customers,avoid the numbers,but use images or graphs,to which you can look and find out the entire story.
This really tells the adage “a picture is worth a thousand words”. If you look at the history of images conveying significant information,you’ll need to look at science.
Why? Because data lies at the soul of all knowledge and science,numbers are initially compiled in tables or databases, they are often displayed in a graphic form to help scientists visualize and interpret the variation, patterns, and trends within the data.
Unless you’re an accountant, who must work with numbers,internet marketers need to serve peers and customers with images and graphs.Which leads me to one fundamental IM tool called Infographics which is visual storytelling aids that work.Think about Google Analytics to get a good idea of Infographics.
What is the general idea behind Infographics? I believe we’ve explained it above but “…infographics are graphic visual representations of information, data or knowledge intended to present complex information quickly and clearly”. I mean wiki’s definition pretty much “hits the nail on the head”.
Another term would be Data visualization.Bear in mind for this make money online Frassadys.com infographics newsletter,is that data visualization keeps the information very informative without being too boring.
Your peers can actually digest the information without a severe migraine and /or an acute panic attack. Basically,the best infographics can tell a story very quickly,concisely and in a compelling and fun way.
The types of infographics include:analysis, and data visualization, which includes, time-series (documents data over time),statistical ( like a histogram), and hierarchies.
I believe a pie chart falls under “anaylsis” category.How statistically important and simplistic is the pie chart?Obviously,it has served us very well. So for a 105 Awesome Infographic Templates you can edit and use,check this out!
Infographics are Visual Storytelling Aids that Work
