Video marketing is all the rage these days when it comes to engaging fans. There are a multitude of ways to make use of it, but like anything else you’re not familiar with, it can become overwhelming.
“Humans are incredibly visual and powerful, moving images help us find meaning… [and] video helps capture and contextualize the world around us.” ~Dan Patterso
First let’s take a quick look at why video marketing is so important, then we’ll jump into some tutorials to get you started!
To make your life a bit easier, I have done the leg work and found some tutorials and resources that will help you along the way. Today is going to lean towards those newer to blogging and video marketing.
YouTube happens to be the #2 search engine in the world, last time I checked. Definitely a platform, I would take advantage of.
First up is a video to help you get started on YouTube if you don’t already have a channel. This will allow you to upload your own videos as well as share videos created by others. After that, we’ll look into sharing those videos on your WordPress Blog!
Here is Rick’s Tips to get started on YouTube…

I want to mention that you can also just place the link you get under “share” on YouTube in the “visual” section of your WordPress edit area where you want the video to appear!

Hopefully, those tutorials will at least get you started on the journey to making use of these Powerful Video Platforms!
