I’m going back to the talk about adding videos to your blog posts. They’re extremely powerful, as many agree with me. The next question is whether you should make your own videos for blog posts, or can you use those already made?
I’ve talked about how to find videos already made, but there are many benefits to making your own. Here are three reasons to get in front of that camera today.
You Connect More With Your Audience
I mentioned how adding video means you connect more with your audience. You can’t connect if you don’t make your own videos for your blog posts.
Having someone else doing all the talking can make you seem fake. How do your readers know that you’ve created the content? If they believe that the person on screen is you, it still lacks the connection. People creating videos professional just don’t always have that click. They don’t share the voice you have in your writing.
Videos made by other people certainly have their place, but they won’t help you connect with your audience. And that is the way to grow your business.
Get the Content You Need
You’re not guaranteed to find the content you need when searching YouTube. Who says that others have made a video about the same topic that you’re writing about?
When you make your own videos, you get something that covers your content exactly. You also get to share your own points or adapt on ones that you’ve made in a blog post.
The video will definitely connect with your audience, and will definitely answer their questions. After all, nobody knows your target market better than you.
Another Form of Online Earnings
Adding videos to YouTube to then share on blog posts means you get another way to make money online. You can add advertisements to your YouTube videos, so you earn through AdSense there. It won’t be much to start, but you can build this up.
There is also the benefit of other people sharing your videos. That leads to more eyes landing on your video, so more chance of making money through YouTube.
Wouldn’t you love another way to make money? I know I love it, especially residually.
I believe that bloggers do better when you make your own videos. It’s something I highly recommend, whether you’ve done it in the past or not. You don’t need a lot of expensive equipment, and I’ll share how I make my videos very soon.
Do you make your own videos for your blog posts? Why do you choose the video method you opt for? I’d love to hear other opinions in the comments below.
