A little bit earlier today the Alex Jeffreys coaching group was privy to a ‘way energetic’ Video Queen. Maria Andros comes off as really energetic, upbeat and positive – as in, ignore the fear based recession talk garbage. (Oh, where have you heard that before)
Alex is a student of hers himself as video marketing is new to him as well, he’s only a couple clicks ahead of the rest of us on this, so we all learn together. Well, I took lots of notes, but will condense a lot here just to give the gist of it.
Maria Andros is known as the Video Queen and for good reason, she has it figured out pretty darn good. Part of her story is this. Because she wanted to do things differently than most she started her marketing with videos. She made about 100 grand in her first year as a stone cold internet marketing newbie selling affiliate products!
She talked about using simple YouTube videos to promote anything. Suggestions such as:
Be yourself – and you don’t need to dress up,
Allow your passion out – “Never apologize for your passion”
Don’t get hung up on getting it perfect – experience will take care of that,
Describe a problem – provide a solution
Relate your story to the problem
Research an pick long tail keywords you can compete in – use these on YouTube
Recommends using Traffic Geyser to post video on multiple sites quickly
Right before making video, get you blood pumping with movement such as jumping jacks
. . . and much more.
Just get going and don’t worry about the quality, that will come as you gain experience.
She said,“Your mess is your message”. Meaning, be passionate and tell your story relating to the solution.
Maria says basically it’s all about “Test, tweak, and track”, create a “Conversion Machine.”
She gave us a set of action steps for getting started.
Actually almost any video camera will do, even a pc camera or even a phone! Don;t let the equipment thing stop you. However, if you are considering buying a camera she highly recommends the new HD Mino Flip camera. They are about $200 and are HD, very good quality and small. You don’t need to do as Alex did, spend $1800 for camera stuff.
Getting to hear Maria today is another example of the relationship power from getting hooked up with a fast up and comer like Alex Jeffreys. Realize it’s not just about the project we are all working on but in the relationships we can develop through this – awesome!
