I'm often asked, "I have no video training but I want to put video on my
website to help promote my products and services what can I do?" Well the
answer is simple. If you can shoot a home movie you can put a video clip
on your website. Now the first thing is to not be scared of the camera. A
good sales person needs to be able to speak clearly and present their
product in a manner that everyone can understand and enjoy. So with that
in mind turn on your camera, cell phone, or whatever video capturing tool
you have and begin shooting. But here are a few tips for making your
shoot successful and getting it up on your website.

1. Speak clearly, and so that everyone watching can understand what your
saying and what your product is about.

2. Make sure you have enough light so that you and your product can be
seen. But be aware that you can also have to much light. So the best
thing to do is to test your video and the area your going to be shot in.
Make sure you look natural.

3. A microphone is important and you need to be heard. If your using a
mini-dv camera you can easily get a microphone that can attach from the
camera to your clothing. Use make sure you can't see the wire that
connects the mic and the camera during your video.

4. Have FUN! No one wants to see a sour face on camera. So make sure you
are having fun and that you SMILE. The better you come across on camera
the more people would want to buy your product or services.

5. Don't use big words in your video presentation. Keep it short sweet
and simple.

6. Once you've finished your recording, watch it. Make sure it's what you
want and something that you'll feel proud to have on your website.
7. Now get the clip to your computer. Your camera will have instructions
on how to upload the footage. Now you can get fancy and use one of the
high end video editing products. But those take a long time to learn. So
if your on a PC use Windows MovieMaker and if your on a Mac use IMove and
edit your clip to your licking. Don't use to make crazy effects keep it
about you and your product.

8. Now once your clip is edited you need to output it to a web file. If
your on a PC then output the file to a WMV. And if your on a MAC then
output your clip to a .MOV file.

9. Upload it! If you don't have server space then use
http://Video.Google.com or http://Youtube.com. You can easily upload your
video to these services. Not only will you have the code to embed the
file to your website but you will also allow others to see your video and
your product who haven't been to your site yet. It will be as easy as CUT
and PASTE to an HTML page.

10. Promote your video clip. Include links to your clip in your weekly
newsletters. Send your clip to your friends, family, and business
associates. Let them see the work you've done and ask them to pass it on
to other friends. Son you'll notice that you have a ton of visitors
watching your video and more traffic to your website.
