As an entrepreneur, I (James Upjohn) get into lots of projects. I have sold my own software, am an Internet Marketing Coach, I make affiliate commissions, offer local business consulting, joined a few Networking Marketing companies and run an SEO membership site.
My upline (the person that recruited me into Network Marketing) taught me how to use videos on YouTube to prospect. I followed his instructions and before I knew it my video was ranked number one for a ‘hot keyword’.
It was the best thing that ever happened to me. I realized I could spend a fortune on backlinks and ranking for one highly competitive keyword, or I could dig a bit deeper, and pretty much instantly rank for lots of popular keywords that everyone ignored.
So here was my choice: Constantly fighting with 200 other people who had the same training as me, spending small fortunes to get that popular keyword, or put up 20 videos that ranked easily for the number one spot on YouTube and Google. These 20 videos could bring in more views and leads than that one single video that everyone else fights over.
And I am willing to bet, that’s what you do every day… Wasting valuable time, money and energy over the keywords everyone else wants.
I started looking for keywords that had reasonable searches and no competition on YouTube. I thought if I ranked number one, YouTube & Google would smile on my video and put it on page one, which they often did.
I identified 90 popular, long-tail keywords, with no more than one competitive video. My thought was: What happens if I upload optimized videos for keywords with 400 – 5000 searches a month, with no competition? What if I uploaded one video a day for 90 days?
Now these were not professionally produced 2 hour long videos. Most were short and crudely made. They’ll never win any awards. They took maybe 10 minutes a day to write out and produce, then another 10 minutes to upload and optimize.
After 90 days, my affiliate commissions from Clickbank ranged from $3000 to $5000 a month, and have remained at that level for fifteen months. So, do you think those "five-minutes-to-produce", "high ranking keywords that everyone ignores or can’t find" videos will continue to pull in auto-pilot affiliate commissions? Yes… pretty much for as long as I leave them up…
They will always be there. There’s no or almost no competition to knock them off. We are looking at truly passive, ongoing income…
So while my mates were at the Pub, quitting smoking or making plans to lose weight, I decided I would make a video a day for three months. I wanted to live a life with my wife and children. I wanted to get out from behind the computer whenever I wanted. I wanted an end to 18 hour work days.
And then the best (worst) thing possible happened. England had the rainiest winter I can remember. It was cold and wet. My children came home from school drenched. The weather was shocking.
This system works! When you know you can ‘bank’ on $3000 or so, on the first of the month, it makes the rest of the month that much easier.
Local business owners have too much on their plate to spend much time on videos and ranking on YouTube and Google.
This becomes a massive opportunity for local marketers. You can help any local business increase their exposure Online.
One of our members shared with me his strategy for finding more local businesses. He ranked a video for an Optometrist on a good keyword. In the footer of the video he placed his own contact details along with a "produced by" notice. He received a call from another Optometrist who saw the video and wanted the same thing done for his business.
He told the Optometrist he could’t do it for that keyword, but there was another keyword that was just as good. So he got a new monthly client.
When I know I am going to a local business, a business like the local restaurant, gym, dentist, doctor, chiropractor, plumber, computer repair and such, I pull out my iPhone and record myself talking positively about how happy I am as a customer of that local business.
I then upload the video, optimize it and of course it ranks immediately for the business name, city and keyword. The whole process takes me maybe five minutes.
When I visit the business, I pull out my iPhone and fire up Google and show the business owner my phone. As they watch, I pop in the keyword and "Boom!" there is the businesses video at number one for their business name.
They watch the video and one of two things happens. One, the owner is delighted and I made their day. That’s a good feeling. Two, the owner is delighted, and noticed my video outranks their site, and wants to know more.
And then I have a new potential client that I already know, liked and trusted (otherwise I wouldn’t be there nor would I make a testimonial video for them).
What if you had access to tens of thousands of small, medium and large businesses who want their already produced videos to rank and get views? They are tired of seeing 50 views on their videos.
You can easily rank these potential customers for popular key words, with no competition using our secret sauce.
And you can get them signed up easily with no more selling than, “Would you like me to do this for your all videos” and price. These potential customers are already on YouTube and no one watches their videos. Like this poor guy’s video.
So in five minutes following a video “makeover” instead of their video ranking for a keyword with few searches or buried on page ten because of fierce competition, it ranks highly… Read more…
