For this we searching some one we can follow, in fact there is much success blogs that we can follow, but none of them gives a clear info like Matthew Woodward doing, he gives a detailed and clear info enough to start.

So simply we are following this post

This is for sure will not be a bad start up, we may try to develop the experiment more and more, but we need at 1st a real info to start.

  • Problem in using Videos
    • Problem #1 Google bots can’t understand video so how will these tutorials attract search traffic?
    • Solved by publishing a transcript under each video that could be shown/hidden by the user.
    • Problem #2 how do I get people to ‘convert’ after watching a video, whether that is subscribing to the blog, sharing the tutorial on a social network or clicking an affiliate link?
    • Solved with a plugin that would show a custom HTML splash screen at the end of the video and let me make certain parts of the video clickable

So that’s great content, that offers multiple points of conversion through email sign up/ affiliate clicks, set up to drive social sharing & user engagement taken care of.

  • It increased visibility in the search engines ranking for long tail keywords
