Earn Money With Your Smartphone

I love making video tutorials for my affiliate marketing business, and know many people who are using video to market their businesses. This is a smart move because there are so many advantages of using video, with the main advantage being profit. Video greatly boosts sales and conversion, and is also a great way to optimize search engine optimization. Why do you think video enhances SEO?

Because visitors will spend longer on your site if you include videos. This lowers your bounce rate, sending a message to Google that people are finding your content valuable, and staying on your site longer. Videos are an effective way to promote your brand and build trust with your tribe. Businesses are built on trust so this is no small issue.

Video enables you to create relationships with those you’re marketing to. If they can actually see and hear you, and you’re delivering helpful information, they’ll keep coming back for more. And they’ll tell others about you too!

Promoting Products and Services To Customers

You can easily convey your message through the medium of video, which makes promoting your products and services simpler than merely blogging. Blogging and video, used simultaneously, is a great combination to help you scale your business.  Let’s say you write a blog post on a product or service you’re promoting, and you augment your post by including a video, demonstrating how the product works. Your visitors are more likely to buy because of your dual effect.

Couple these advantages with the fact that many people are just too lazy to read, but will watch or listen to a video, extending your reach. People are more likely to share a video to social media than they are an article or blog post. With everyone on their phones 24/7, you can use this to your advantage by creating videos that people can easily listen to, without necessarily, having to view them. I know I listen to videos when I’m multi-tasking. Whether your videos are watched or listened to, you’re getting your message out there.

My favorite feature is the ability KineMaster gives you to split and trim your video. See below. It’s just a matter of dragging the yellow box to the left or right depending on where you want to trim. You can also crop, rotate, add color filters and graphics, and adjust the color.
