5 Reasons You Should Be Using Video Marketing

I want to raise your profile and your income using online video. I've worked in broadcast television and video for over a decade and trained literally thousands of people in how to use video. If you're struggling to get noticed, to stand out from the crowd or to be seen as an expert in your niche you need to use video marketing. I'll give you 5 good reasons why video marketing will help your visibility and credibility.

1. There is a huge audience for online video. Did you know in 2011, YouTube had more than 1 trillion views. That works out as 140 views for every person on the planet. To become micro-celebrity in your field you don't need to get on TV anymore. Video sharing sites like youtube have an just need to tap into it.

2. One of the reasons some people struggle to keep on blogging is that it takes time. If you're not a natural born writer it can be quite a chore, but if you can talk to your friends, you can talk to a video camera. Recording regular video content is quick and easy. You can also do it anywhere.

3.  Video is far more personal than text. In the same way you may feel like you know your favourite tv presenter, your audience will get to know you through your videos. If you can see and hear a person, you quickly get a feel for what they are like. That's why video is so powerful in building an audience.home

4. Getting a good video is cheap. If you don't have an expensive camera, just use your webcam or your phone. You can record a video message on whatever you have, and load it onto youtube which is free. The only cost to you is your time. Don't worry too much about the quality of your camera. If the quality of the content is good, no one will mind.  You can also get a low cost whiteboard animation video for your site from sites like wizMotions that will allow you to present a wonderful video at an affordable cost.


5.  Finally number 5 and this is a big one. If you want to be seen as a go to expert in your industry, then video is a great way to build credibility. If you use video to teach others what you know or spread your ideas, your audience will realise you know what you're talking about, and you have instant credibility. If you want to learn more about using video to stand out from the crowd and position yourself as a credible expert in your field, head over to my website for a free mini video course.

Goals and Planned Purchases Over The Next Three Months!

Before the start of each season I like to write a list of thing I want to do/achieve over the coming months. I don’t always manage to do them all, but looking back afterwards is a good way to judge what you’ve actually achieved! For the first time I’m going to post my goals on this blog so that you can all track what I’ve done and whether I’ve been slacking off! Some of them are really small things (research buying a vintage watch, send out Christmas cards etc), and I haven’t been too ambitious this time.

The first thing I want to do is make sure that I start exercising before Christmas. I think most people eat loads over the holiday period, feel bad and then try to make up for it in January. This doesn’t work (for lots of reasons) – I don’t think it’s every possible to exercise with the only motivation being guilt at how much you’ve eaten!

There are a few things I want to buy over the next few months. A lot of good video games are coming out, so I’ll probably try to limit myself to buying one game at a time, then only getting another when I’ve completed it. I’ve also always wanted to get a vintage watch, so that’s probably I’ll try and research and possibly buy over the next few weeks/months.

Finally, I never get around to doing Christmas cards even though I get some from lots of people, so I’ll make sure I send some out this time.

Right, not that I’ve told you about my goals what are yours? Is there something you really want to achieve over the next few months? Have you thought about goals as we move into the new year either (bit early but worth thinking about).


A new era in face beauty

There is an old saying that says habits die hard.  That can definitely be true, especially if you are talking about habits that you hate to love, and love to hate.  These habits are also the ones that usually cause quite a few problems for you.

Like I said, these habits can always be a problem for you when if you aren't careful, and they can be a problem for your face and your eyes, causing some problems like puffy eyes.

If you want true and accurate information about dark circles under eyes of which you can find at the Face Fitness Center, then it's best to do some of your own research around the internet for it.  It's hard to discern the crap from the good stuff but if you stay diligent you will find what you are looking for.  Or you might want to ask a friend what worked for them or who helped them.

Let us also remember that it's never too late to start a good habit, and it's never to late to start improving our lives.  When you wake up one morning and realize how far you have come, you will be amazed at how easy it was to start.

Again if you are wondering how to get rid of dark circles maybe your best bet isn't always going to to be a dark circles treatment that would have normally have thought to try.  Maybe you just need more sleep, or need more vitamins and minerals.  It's hard to say as the problem can be different for everyone.  Just keep trying to improve your life and lifestyle and eventually you will find the right formula to fix the problem. Trying an eye cream for dark circles is usually a first step for alot of people.

The internet can supply alot of good information, but there is alot of misinformation as well.  Carefully pick out which advice you follow, because you don't want to choose incorrectly too many times and lose so much time trying remedies that don't really work!

Problems with your eyes and how to avoid it

There will be days when you wake up and say to yourself "why do I always wake up and see a problem with my eyes, and why can't I fix it"?  More specifically, you have a problem with dark circles and don't know how to fix it.  This can be avoided by trying 3 different ways to remove dark circles.

Wondering how?  Changes in your lifestyle can go a long way.  Stop drinking alcohol, stop smoking, and be more active.  These are the best ways to start.  Stop overthinking the problem and start changing now for a solution.  This is the best way to start.

A proper dark circles under eyes treatment should always start with first taking a long look at yourself and what your daily habits are.  This shouldn't be difficult to do.  Just start listing them each day, and the next day go over all of it to make sure it isn't something you want to change.

As a last resort, consult a doctor.  They can tell you if your problem can be solved by natural methods, or if you need to do something more drastic like surgery or something like that.  Don't be afraid, you have to start sometime and what better time than the present.

Keep the family active

I can’t stress how important it is for parents to help their families become fitter. Getting fit as a family will benefit everyone. Exercise, combined with a healthy balanced diet will help prevent health problems for the next generation.

On average both adults and children are simply not getting enough exercise and this is having an effect on our health.

Statistics prove that a child with two obese parents has a 70 per cent chance of becoming obese compared to less than 20 per cent among children with lean parents. These figures really emphasize how important it is for parents to take the lead and set a good example for their children.

Always stay active, and keep your children active with sports with their friends or organized!

Risks of a brow lift

In some cases the nerves that control the brow movement may be injured on one or both sides. This might result in the patient not being able to raise their eyebrows or wrinkle their forehead. If this happens it is usually temporary but it is advisable to speak to your doctor or surgeon to ensure that it won’t develop into something permanent.

If you have a traditional eyebrow lift another potential complication could be that the scar starts to widen and become more prominent. If this occurs, your doctor may suggest corrective surgery to create a new, thinner scar.

Patients often mention the loss of sensation along or just beyond the incision line. This is common, again, especially after a traditional eyebrow lift.

Temporary numbness will occur, but this will stop by itself usually in 3 or 4 months.  Some of hair around where you were cut may thin out a bit, but within 1 or 2 months it should be OK.

If you have any concerns about any of these potential complications or side effects don’t be afraid to discuss them with your doctor or surgeon before the operation.  Of course if you elect to have a natural face lift alot of this can be avoided!
