Hello fellow video marketers. My name is Jason Phillips and I am the Youtube marketing guru. In most of my episodes I like to talk about audience retention in my video performances. A lot of times I find myself zoning out at how awesome my videos really are. Anyway today I will be talking about the five ways to really build your brand online.
Get out there is your first step. Maybe get some business cards, get on social media and the most important thing get a websites cheap. Listen it’s not that hard to get a website. You have to purchase a domain for maybe ten bucks.
You need to host it that’s maybe ten bucks per month and download WordPress that’s free. To take it a step further you could get on the adobe platform for all your collective needs. But I would highly suggest a WordPress site especially when starting.
Please don’t build a website that is hard to use and just outright sucks. Become a part of the conversation on social media platforms. It’s going to be real critical here because social media is huge so get out there and start posting comments and conversing with people.
Get on peoples blogs, on their Facebook fan pages, see what people are tweeting about. Just get involved and congregate where your fans on and get over their in that direction. You see it comes down to a lot more than just finding your niche and thinking you’re going to make gobs of money.
When the industry changes you want to change with it and fight the grain when it makes sense. When Youtube hooks you up with the latest and greatest layout and things are changing get on it. Check it out see what it’s all about and then move on.
What you don’t want to do is waste your time on all these special features that aren’t going to get you anywhere. So really the most important thing you can do on any marketing platform or social media site is pay attention and keep moving forward.
Executing successfully is what’s going to bring you success in the long run.
I learned like many others that most people don’t give a care about what you do. Nobody really cares about the latest video that you put out there and tell them they should watch now. If you’re the one starring in your own videos you should probably stop. Like, right now.
It’s great that you think you’re an actor, and a director and a visual effects artist, story board and a script writer and all these wonderful things. Great, we know you can do it. But we want to see is how you’re going to grow. How you’re going to take it to the next level. Where you’re going to go next.
You can do this by bringing more people into your production. Attend networking events. Get in touch with people that like the same sorts of things that you like. Don’t get stuck at some networking meeting that you have no passion for the product or the service and it’s more of a cult than a network marketing event.
Stick with a group that’s interested in what you’re doing. I know that this isn’t easy for everybody. Most people are stuck working a day job, a night time job and trying to balance video production.
I learned something a long time ago. This is a very important and critical point if you want to succeed in most marketing on home based business endeavors. Sometimes you have to collaborate with people at your own expense.
Basically what this means is you’re flying out some where or you’re working ungodly amount of hours to meet someone where you’re going to pay for their dinner or their lunch or whatever. You’re going to bring your equipment. You’re going to use your equipment. You’re going to make some kind of marketing video that’s branding you and them that they can post on their Youtube channel.
The reason why this is so critical is because it opens up channels for networking. If this person has some type of following for instance it can open up endless opportunities in the long run.
Something we like to do is link back to our website at the end of videos or in the description. There is a lot to be gained there and the biggest thing is that you’re opening up relationships and offerings.
So get out there and collaborate. It’s your job as an entrepreneur to reach out to people. If you’re not building relationships you can sell anything. If you can’t sell anything guess what? You’re not going to be in business for long.
Today’s day and age makes it very simple to build business and reach out to people. In most cases you don’t have to leave your house unless you’re going to a marketing event of some kind. The days of driving to meet people for coffee or some food are… well.. Lets just say it doesn’t happen much.
Listen, as an active entrepreneur and business owner I will always love people. It’s my job to reach out and work with likeminded people. But now we have tools such as Youtube, Facebook, Twitter and list the goes on where you can literally build a relationship right through your computer and phone. Yes we do use the phone from time to time.
