What’s Missing In Your Videos?

Posted by on Jan 29, 2015

Talking video today, and what kind of video post would it be without a video?

Here’s a reality. Most videos on YouTube have very few visits at all. The reason is simple; no one knows about your video because it’s not entertaining. It may be informational but we all know that to make a video go viral, it takes more than that.

Of course it also comes down to purpose. If you’re looking to make educational videos to highlight what it is you do so you can put them on your website, that’s one thing. But if you’re looking to advertise your business it takes something else.

Living in the Syracuse NY area, I remember back in the 80’s when this guy came on talking about buying cars from his auto dealership. It was a cheesy local video, like most of them are, but one thing stood out. He didn’t say “huge”; it came out sounding like “Youge”. And within days everyone I knew was walking around saying that word.

The guy was no dummy; he graduated from Syracuse University after all. So, every commercial he made after that had him saying that word and making sure it was emphasized. He now owns multiple car dealerships across the country, and it all started with one word that entertained people, even if by accident.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video and of course share it if you wish. I’m not the most entertaining guy so this is the best I can do… for now. 🙂

You just reminded me of a local car salesman of my youth… I wonder if any of your readers can fill in the blank: “See the USA, in a _____________ Chevrolet!” (And if a pudgy baby New Year doesn’t instantly flash to mind, no extra credit pointals for you!)

You’re not from Ohio. And that’s all the clue I’ll give the rest of your readers. 🙂

By the way, I’m really torn: I have an opportunity to enter a contest with a really neat prize (and no, you can’t enter it – so no worries about competition here!), but to win, I have to enter a video. I dismissed the idea out of hand, but every other blog post I ran across, yesterday, talked about making your own videos. Is the universe telling me “DO THIS!!” or should I listen to my gut – “Don’t bother with the public humiliation of attempting this one…”?

Go ahead & do the video. Like I said before, you’re in your own house & in your own room, and you’re gonna look like you no matter what. 🙂

Before you leave a reply; please see the comment policy if this is your first visit. This blog doesn't accept keyword names. I need a real first name or a legitimate nickname that you're known for. If your name has more than 3 words or the email address begins with "info" or "admin", the comment automatically goes to the spam filter; same if there are any links in the comment or if you don't have a gravatar. If your comment goes to spam for any of these reasons, or any other reason listed in this post, it may never show up on the blog (I do forgive the link issue if you've commented on the blog previously and I'll forgive the gravatar thing for first time visitors). If it goes there for any other reason (and I know some do), I'll pull it out as I don't intentionally moderate any comments on this blog.

One last thing; if your link is an affiliate link or goes back to a strange website or webpage I don't like, if I keep your comment I'll remove your link. That's why I have CommentLuv for blogs; if you have a legitimate business just leave that link & no sub-links. Trust me, it's best to read the comment policy if you don't get it, or never see your comments showing up here.

If you like this post, why not donate to the cause? :-)
