10 video marketing mistakes to avoid

Video marketing is one hot potato when it comes to social media marketing. Video can help make your content “sticky”, lower your bounce rate and send traffic directly to your landing pages.

Video can be used to sell, to educate and keep the kids quiet in the school holidays ;), my point – it’s powerful with many uses.

Hi Sarah,
Great slideshare on video production. I am exactly guilty of not putting out enough videos. I find all sorts of reasons why I don’t put them out – so I won’t bother elaborating because it is time to cut the excuses and get more out there. I like your tips on not worrying about fancy equipment and fancy effects. This is what my mentor, Eric Worre taught me and he should know because he has millions of views and an extremely successful video blog.

You have inspired me and this week, I will be creating videos.

Hi Sarah,
I love your site and posts, a great source of inspiration and education.
I like videos and me too I find excuses not to do them maybe because I am expecting more out of them, maybe because it takes effort to find the subjects to present in 3 minutes…
I know I need to learn more and your tips are a great foundation for all of us.

Great tips Sarah.

Too many people make it out to be harder than needs to be.

There are people out there looking for help…something only
each one of us can deliver to a certain person.

When we let go and get out of our own way the real journey begins.

I feel a video coming lol

You are right on with every on of your points! Taking time to engage your video audience is one of the most important. I have a YouTube inbox loaded with spam, and I have no idea who those people are. The people who have taken the time to build a relationship with me, are of much more interest!

Hi Sarah,

Good post about videos. I know they work wonders but I have to admit, I’m a lot like Clare, above. I need to stop with the excuses and just “do it.”

Have a great day. Monna

I agree, these are important things to avoid. Also, being fussy about the sound quality of your videos is very important, more than the video quality. I like your slide show Sarah!
