Leads On Demand With Social Media Marketing

It amazes me how creative people can be. The Advanced BuzzZing Social Media Marketers in my company recently underwent the task of creating short marketing video’s to upload on Youtube. It’s important to note that most of them had never created a video before yet they undertook the project with gusto! (is that a word? Yeah, I’m pretty sure)

Peter from Townsville created the below video. It’s really, really great! He used the ANIMOTO program to create it. And this from a guy who tells me his tech knowledge is very limited. Go Pete!

Youtube is a terrific platform in which to generate inquiry for your business. Within 1 Day of this video being up, Peter generated 5 leads. Not bad going for such a short time on the air. People love watching video’s! Did you know that 200 Million Video’s are watched on YouTube every single day. Whoza! That’s a remarkable number!

Here’s a few tips when creating your video.
1. Keep it short and sweet. Around 1-3 minutes is best.
2. Keep it light! Not too serious!
3. Make sure you add your website throughout the video so your viewers can inquire with you.
4. Add the appropriate “tags” or key words that you’d like to be found under.

I’d love to see your creative work. Send me through any video’s that you’ve created recently.

    What a beautiful example of what an ‘amateur’ can produce by harnessing the power of technology which is available to us through the internet. And, most times, we can use it all for free! It is easy to do, the step by step action steps provided in Buzz-Zing social media training modules just makes the process such fun! Yesterday I produced an advert on Powerpoint / learnt how to upload free images and backgrounds to the advert and now I have a dynamic ‘engage the reader’ advert posted out there on the Internet. I’m no technical whizz but that did not stop me having success – my daughter is doing a Media Production degree and she was blown away by my creation. So easy, such fun!

  4. Greetings from California! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out
