PODCAST: Make your Video a Swiss Army Knife of Marketing

You’ve recorded your video! Woo-hoo! Once you’re done with your high fives or your happy dance, it’s time to get down to business. And that’s where the most mistakes happen.

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO SHARE YOUR VIDEO?

You don’t want your video marketing efforts to fail, so your first step to success is to think of your video as a Swiss Army Knife of marketing. There are many ways to use a video and here’s where to start:

  1. It has to “live” somewhere
  2. Then think about your website
  3. And sending it through email
  4. Don’t forget to share it on social

We cover all these steps with podcasting guru Matt Halloran of ProudMouth (formerly Top Advisor Marketing). He asked us for our secrets when it comes to pushing out your video and we were excited to share!

Bonus: If you’d like to turn this podcast into an interactive game, take a drink every time we say the word “functionality.” Have fun playing along!
