Video Spotlight Social Media ROI Qualman Animation

Today I want to Spotlight Erik Qualman again.  The following video talks about Social Media
ROI.  What I like about this video is the creative use of Xtranormal Software to tell the story in animation form.  If you are camera shy or simply don’t have a camera, software like Xtranormal could be a great option for telling your business story video.

Socialnomics Video Book Review

I just completed a video book review of Erik Qualman’s book Socialnomics: How Social Media Transforms the Way We Live and Do Business. I consider this book to be a foundation and playbook for Social Media Business Case Studies. We have all seen his video series “Social Media Revolution” Socialnomics is an extension of this in print. Erik really showcases the impact of social media and how it be used to leverage business.

I can honestly say this book has a direct impact on my own passion for social media social selling and customer video engagement. The shift in social media has changed the landscape on how we conduct business, listen and respond to our customers. We now live in new world, a social media revolution. This book is a tremendous resource and playbook for understanding this from a business perspective. Is social media a fad, you must be mad, read this book in you will be hooked.

Checkout out Erik’s website http://www.socialnomics.net/ Social media trends are evolving and updates for this book can be found on this website. More on Erik and my video review watch the videos below on my Yubby Channel “Socialnomics Video Reviews – Social Media Revolution.” A video book review for Amazon.com will be posted in a few days.

One of the questions, I get asked is how can I do a visual presentation without video. I will be providing examples on how to do this. I just started using a product called GoAnimate, an animation software program. Checkout out my quick promotional video for this upcoming webinar. Just having a little fun with cartoon animations.

Camera Shy Try Animation Software

Camera Shy try animation software programs for your visual presentation. People often say that want to have a video presentation but they don’t like being on camera or they simply lack time and equipment. We all know about great applications like Animoto, Brainshark and Slideshare to name a few but you can also create presentations with animation software like GoAnimate, Stupeflix and Xtranormal. I just experimented with GoAnimate and created a short video animation. The tool was very simple to use and I see it creating value. I made a quick video in 30 minutes time. Just that simple to execute.

There are several options to create visual presentation without a camera that are cost effective and free. These options are worth checking out. Also worth checking out is a great article by Jeremy Scott posted on www.reelseo.com. My favorite resource site for Online Video Marketing News “ No Camera? No Problem! YouTube Integrates Animation Software for Filmmakers” This is a well done post that really simplifies how Animation Tools and YouTube can work together. We can benefit from these tools.

Video Engagement Tips 101 – March Madness

March Madness Video Engagement Tips 101. It is that time of year when March Madness NCAA Hoops Tournament is in full effect. I have a strong passion for video and College Basketball. In keeping with the theme, I decided to create a quick video on tips for producing an online video with emphasis on leveraging social selling and customer engagement .

This video slideshow was developed with a simple flip camera using window movie maker as an editing tool with voice over narration. I try to keep it simple.

Video SEO and my lunch box

How simple is it to make video impact on your SEO?  Last a week, my own lunch box was posted on YouTube by Desiree Peeples.  Yes my own childhood lunch box at my co-working office refrigerator in Atlanta.   What is ironic about this story was that I was researching Desiree’s work and saw my own lunch box on her YouTube Channel.  This Saturday, I will have opportunity to hear Desiree speak at a Video Boot Camp here in Atlanta.

Here are my takeaways, strategically tagging, adding keywords and describing your video with creative and compelling titles can leverage your SEO.  My own lunch box video is on the first page of Google after one video post.   This video stands out with simple placement and implementing metadata on your video.

 

 


With proper optimization, video increases the chance of a front-page Google result by 53x. (Forrester Research, January 2010)

A simple lunch and learn from my old school lunch box.

Video Book Review – Resume Branding 101 “Kim N. Carswell”

A few days ago I made an attempt to do a video book review for author Kim N. Carswell. I was battling adverse weather conditions, tornado storm warnings, noise distractions like Jet Planes flying over from nearby Dobbins Air Reserve Base.  That attempt produced a short educational blooper reel. Needless to say, here is my video book review of Kim’s Book “Resume Branding 101 Strategies for Getting Noticed 10 Seconds or Less” I was able to film the review the next day under better conditions.

This is a must read for anyone who is looking for a new job or underemployed , or simply wants to market their own personal brand in effective manner. More on Kim N. Carswell. Checkout her company at http://www.personaaffairs.com/resume.html

There are a ton books and career coaching services out there that provide tips and templates on how to write a resume but they fall short on how to make it readable and desirable in today’s competitive job market. This is where Kim’s book comes into play and provides that special niche on how to get your resume noticed by a hiring audience.

Kim has an accomplished background on the topics or resume writing, personal branding and the hiring process. She speaks to both sides of the hiring table. She understands the content. This book really touches on the mindset on how to create your own brand identity and market your resume effectively to your hiring audience keeping the reader in mind with the goal of getting the first interview . The book outlines a plan for a specialized Resume Branding Matrix.
