    If you're new to video marketing and have just heard how much of a great source of traffic and leads it is then you're probably thinking you can create one or two videos and find success. This is the first and biggest mistake a newbie can make. You need to be consistent and continually make videos to promote your business or products. A couple of videos will not suffice.

    Getting people to watch your videos can be difficult. So how do you get them to watch your videos? Well, you can't make them watch your videos but you can help guide them to your videos. Make sure you use relevent but widely searched tags, use a title that is eye catching and most importantly use a thumbnail that will make people want to click "play" while describing what the video is about.

    Most importantly, keep it simple stupid(K.I.S.S.). Don't make a long video filled with unnecessary fluff, just make it quick and to the point.

    Do you think we should use a mic or can we just use text on screen and still find success?

    You should try Camtasia. It's pretty quick and simple and gets the job done.
    As for a microphone, I wouldn't. Just go with text.

    I sometimes do videos everywhere in our city. But i'm still a newbie, i just upload it directly without editing. I just add music to it and thats it. Youtube description will do the rest.

    Music? I'm not sure. That would depend on the type of video you're making, what you're promoting, etc.

    Here is best free youtube video SEo tip for all. Go to youtube and type in the keyword you looking to rank for. Find the top couple videos for it. Copy all their keyword tags. Then use them verbatim in yours. Even if you do not pass them, you are going to show up under 'related' videos. So that way you can siphon off some of their traffic. Have fun...

    I promote my city. Its a travel site where i feature beaches and hotels. And anywhere in our city. When i add music to videos, these music usually are songs made and written by our local dialect, so i think it should be fine.

    Maybe just instrumental music, instead of being like everyone else on Youtube and using mainstream stuff.

    It also violates the law and will get your video pulled or silenced anyway.

    Video communication is an efficient means of reaching prospective customers, of promoting the presentation of your products or services. The use of videos on the Internet brings numerous advantages. It is a great solution with great impact on the visitor. It combines the advantages of "classic" TV advertising with the Internet's most important characteristic, interactivity.

    Video marketing is already one of the best ways to promote a product or services. We just need good resources and proper information to do it.
