4th of July

Happy 4th of July everybody! Have Fun!

Back from the Internet Marketing Conference

We are back from Vegas and the Internet Marketing Superconference.

It was really good to meet friends like Stu McClaren, Frank Sousa, Jeannete Cates and to make new ones.

There were some great speakers and my favorite was Jack Humphrey talking about social media. Hee gave some very good tips that I’ll share with you in another opportunity. Unfortunatelly, we were not able to interview him.

Brad Fallon also was very good and he is such a nice person to talk to.

Now that we are home, we’ll have time to process all the information we got there.

We did some great interviews that turned out with bad sound. As usual, we took our Sony hd to tape but we also took a Flip Camera. Turns out the Flip camera is so easy to use, saves so much time, that for this kind of interview, it sounded perfect. We wanted to do the interview and upload right away, so you would get the new stuff too.

Guess what? the camera has awful sound quality. Really bad. Ugh!

We thought that the problem was with our camera, so we took it back and got another.

Just tried and the sound is horrible. That is really bad because we do a bunch of videos and this camera could help us a lot.

We decided to put a tape over the microphone to do a second video. The sound is nice. Go figure!

Martin Wales and Online Videos

Martin Wales talked to us on how to take maximum advantage of the coming video revolution.

Growing up Amish

Anna Dee Olson was born in an Amish family. She left her faith at 24, realized she could make a difference helping other people that have faced challenges and became an online entrepreneur and an author. She is the author of “Growing Up Amish“.

Internet Marketing and Free Video Submitter

You know that if you have an online business today, you need to use videos.
You also know you need to put them everywhere, in YouTube, Veoh and all the others.
This can be very time consuming but the benefits are huge.

I found out a free video submitter that can save you a lot of time.

First, let me share with you some tips to make your video happen online and become viral.

So here’s the strategy:

In order to have a lot of videos in the broadcaster’s sites, you can edit a few different versions of the same video (Different lengths, cut scenes, clips, etc…).
It takes more work in the editing part, but it is really worth.
Once you have a few different versions, autosubmit each one using the free video submitter software.

When you do this, you can target different sets of keywords.
See how it could work?

2nd Tip: After you’ve done that, you can also resubmit all those video’s again under different video file formats, and again targeting different keywords.
Â
This will give you multiple video listings for the same video on many of the video hosting sites.

You cannot post identical videos twice, which is why small edits and changes in file formats submitted will be enough to fool most of the video hosting sites so that you get multiple video listings.

A new kind of media trading at Switch Planet

Switch Planet is a barter system site where you may switch or borrow dvds, cds, games and books with other users.
This is not the only option online for this kind of site, there are many like Craigslist and Peerflix, but Switch Planet offers a twist: it helps society and the environment.

When you go to their website, you’ll see that their mission is right at your left and if you click, you’ll read:
It is our goal to establish SwitchPlanet.com as a premier online community that is committed to helping reduce the impact waste is having on the planet by trading the things we no longer use to get the things we want.

“Use more…waste less.”

Social Responsibility

– Reducing environmental waste
– Helping those who need it most
– Support arts/culture and education

Well, we can only say kudos to that!
Traders can opt to donate any amount they trade or not.
They are not the first website to do that, others like Squidoo also do the same, but it is a nice thing anyway. It is a good option for people that have a way of contributing with some organizations instead of having dvds collecting dust in the garage.

This website is fairly new, it started in February 2007, ranks 32,400 on Alexa and has a PR5, which shows it is becoming popular really fast.

They also offer a good refund policy in case any item arrives damaged.
The site also has friends groups and forums to improve communication among users and to allow them to comment on the products.

The profiles page also increases the engagement with users.

I though the website as a whole is very clean and easy to use and worth a try.
