MLM Tips: Video Marketing Is Easy

One of the more secret MLM tips that the top earners have probably been keeping from you is that Video Marketing is actually incredibly easy. They like to keep this to themselves because so far video marketing is a fairly untapped and uncompetitive market.Why Video?-It is an excellent way to start building a relationship with your leads. They get to either see your face or hear your voice and they know you are a real person.-Many people are afraid of video. They think that they have to be on the screen or they simply think it is a complicated process involving technology they don’t understand. This is what keeps the competition so low.-Most people LOVE watching videos. It is an easy medium to get your information, and when choosing between watching a quick video or reading articles, these days many people opt for the video-Google loves video. It is ten times easier to rank on Google with a video than with an article or other form of content. If you do a Google search for most of the keyword you plan on targeting to get traffic to your website you will find that videos very often rank on the first page, and with very few backlinks.-It’s fast! You can make a video on a topic in about 5 to 10 minutes, whereas creating an article or webpage on the same topic can take you 30 minutes to an hour.-It is a free way to market. You simply have to have a few tools in place (and there are many free options for programs you can get to make your videos very easily), you need a microphone, and you need a free YouTube account.

Remember that in MLM the most important thing is that people want to work with you. If you create a good relationship with your prospects by letting them get to know you and giving them some useful information, they will become interested in working directly with you and then ask what business you’re in. So when making your video think about what your ideal prospects need to know. What information can you give them that will help them in their quest to work from home?? If you give them what they want they are far more likely to view you as a leader they would like to work with.So How is it Easy?You actually can beat the obstacles that keep most people from utilizing video marketing very easily.-Videos don’t have to be perfect! In fact, it is the imperfections in your videos that show you are a real person and actually assist you in creating that all important relationship with your leads!-You don’t have to go onscreen if you use Screen Capture videos.

5 Reasons to Use Mobile Technology for Education

Being an educator today is very exciting. It is 2011. We have rolled over to a new year and there are so many educational opportunities on the horizon. Today’s technological advances are as monumental as the world-changing inventions of paper or the printing press. Information is dispensed at increasingly rapid speeds.However, the speed and methods we use to absorb information has not changed, but our access to it and the ways that we interact with that information has changed greatly.As human beings, we continue to process information the same way that we always have – through our 5 senses. For education, we usually rely upon our eyes, ears and sense of touch. If you own a smartphone or mobile device (especially an iPad), you hold an incredible educational tool in your hands. Why, you ask? Because it is interactive and multi-sensory.How is an iPad different from a computer, is another question you may be asking? Here are my top 5 reasons why an iPad is superior to a regular computer and even textbooks when it comes to learning.1. No mouse! As quickly as we all pick up the concept of a mouse moving a cursor on a screen, it is still an extra step for the information to travel from the brain to the device and vice-versa. When a child uses his finger to manipulate information or draw in a letter or a shape, there is no extra step of the mouse to get in the way.2. No cords! You can take a iPhone or an iPad with you anywhere. In fact, that’s the whole point – technology on the go. You can learn from anywhere – not just a school desk or a kitchen table.3. No books! Now, I love books and have thousands of them, but you can learn everything from Spanish to math to grammar to handwriting, all from one single device without having to lug around an armful or backpack full of books.4. Less waiting! Installation of an app is much quicker than installing software onto a computer.5. Less expense! Frankly, I think that apps are too cheap, but why not take advantage of it while this is the trend. Take foreign language for example… You can buy a textbook for $50 or more, or computer software for upwards of $200 or more, to help your child learn a new language. Or you can buy an app for $4.99. This is simply amazing technology at ridiculously low prices.TIP – If you do purchase apps for education (and you should if you have the technology!), then remember to back-up your iPhone or iPad to iTunes so that you can re-install it if ever it gets inadvertently deleted or you replace your device with a new one.
