Content is king if you want to attract readers to your blog or website. That is what Google is looking for and that is what will keep people coming back to your site over and over again.
However, writing articles all the time is difficult. Specially if you are not a professional writer (I’m definitely not a professional -:)). Fear not, content doesn’t always have to be articles. It could consist of video, PowerPoint presentation, audio, all kinds of different information channels. The one I have become better acquainted with lately is video. I love video!
Why, because depending on your writing skills it may be easier to “show” someone what you are doing or how you are doing it rather than writing about it.
Imagine looking over someones shoulder while they are creating a website, or searching for keywords, or optimizing a web page. how cool would that be. I enjoy making video’s because all I do is record the computer screen as I perform the tasks I do on a daily basis, edit it a bit, and post it to the site and BOOM…. you can see exactly what I did. And the best part…. nothing gets lost in the translation.
So…. you are thinking OK Gregg, how much is this going to cost me? Well, remember I want to bring you as much value as possible so how does FREE sound? That’s right, FREE!
The name of the product is Cam Studio. It is free and I have a free video on how to use it. I started out using Cam Studio but have progressed to “Camtasia” which is a bit more advanced and costs about $300. But you don’t need Camtasia to make video’s for content. All you need is Cam Studio and you are all set.
So why is video so good as content? Well, Google LOVES video and you might be able to get ranked for a certain keyword a lot sooner with video than an article.
Think about it. Google owns YouTube. Now who do you think they will push up in the rankings if you post something? An article posted at EzineArticles.com or a video at YouTube? R I G H T….exactly. See how this works? And you don’t have to be a pro either.
So fire up your Flip Mino or just record your computer screen with Cam Studio, either way, you need to get started producing video’s today.
Do you think you can do this or is this too complicated? Please leave a comment below.
