    Thanks for the lesson. I am going to increase my video marketing, so for me this is a perfect lesson.


  2. Jamie says:

    Hi Robert…

    Excellent content as usual… really enjoyed it and very informative!

  3. John Antaya says:

    Thank You for the why and how of using video. The three video times mentioned and how to section videos did make a lot of sense. I’m not one for long videos anyway and I will assume that there are a lot of other people out there who are not fond of long videos either. I know I prefer videos short and to the point.

    Thank You Again

  4. Joel says:

    Great info … it really is much easier than I thought it was. Thanks!

  5. George says:

    Robert, Once again you’ve changed the course of my approach. Your outline and rationale make sense, and based on your own success with Newbie Crusher and Membership Cube, video is the way to go on my own infant website. Thanks again!

  6. Hi Robert:

    Thank you for the great information! I just downloaded FreeMind and I look forward to learning how to get the most from it. I would also suggest iShowU from shinywhitebox.com as a great screen capture application for Mac users (the standard version (the one without the “HD” in it’s name) can record HD as well). I have plans to add many more videos (especially reviews) to my YouTube page, which you can find here (I have one so far):

    All the best, and I look forward to more of your content!

    Another informative post Thanks

  8. Sud.Lamiran says:

    cool insight Robert, as usual. hopefully got something new in this podcast!

    Hey Robert, greetings from little old England :-). Been reading and listening to your stuff for a while now, learning lots.
    I have Camtasia and I use a paid mind mapping software called iMindMap for my business, so I’m set.
    I need the impetus to actually start. Your 4×4 and 6×4 process is one of the best ideas I’ve come across. Thanks. I’m going to use it.

    Hi Robert,

    I have both Camtasia and Easy Video Suite.

    Easy Video Suite knocks Camtasia out of the park except for two areas- editing and zoom and pan. In all other respects Easy Video Suite is superior – speed, convenience, features like customising the player, split-testing, optimisation etc. Having both tools is the best of both worlds.

    If you are running an online business these are THE essential tools of the trade and I recommend that readers invest in their business accordingly.

    I am also excited by the potential of using Google Plus Hangouts with live streaming on YouTube. GoToWebinar is soon going to be under pressure!

    Keep the content coming Robert!



  11. Philip says:

    Thanks for breaking it all down in step by step approach. You freely give info that many would charge lots for without your clarity. Thank you!

  12. Another excellent podcast, Robert – you have the ability to break down what seems to be an overwhelming and complicated task (a video each day, for instance) simple and much easier.

    I’ll be implementing these strategies on my blog very soon, and I took your advice and got the free trial of Camtasia. I’ve tried other products and they just don’t work as well.

    Thanks for your consistency and great information!

  13. Evan says:

    Great podcast, Robert and right on time as I’m building a membership site for my first big Camtasia for Mac product and I’ve just starting to think about all the sales and marketing videos I need to make. The simple processes you outline in this podcast are going to make my job a lot easier. I can also testify to the effectiveness of videos. When I started promoting my life coaching practice last year, I put up a Camtasia video I shot of a Keynote slideshow just describing what is life coaching and how can it help you get what you want. The video helped me attract paying clients immediately and still draws in clients, although my prices have gone up since then. I’ll send you an email when the new site and product is ready. I’m already using Backupcreator to protect and save my work on all my blogs, and using it on my new membership site as I’m finishing the video modules and putting everything in place is giving me great peace of mind. I never worry about losing my work!

  14. Yet another goldmine of a podcast, Robert! Thanks! 🙂 (BackupCreator helps me save a LOT of time…)

  15. Not to the recording myself yet. Will be coming back for your advice soon though I hope to re-listen to your advice and actually follow through.

  16. Joshua says:

    Great job Robert, always pick up something, from your post. I have gotten more free information on here than I ever had with allot of this so called good payed information. Keep up the good work,
    Joshua Shoemaker

  17. Youtube is definitely a great way to become skilled in info product creation. It’s easy, it’s free and you have an instant audience that will find you if you offer a quick solution to a specific problem.

    Make short to-the-point videos and you build instant credibility and authority that makes people interested in your products.

    Youtube gives you the tools and exposure to try different techniques and to see which topics and approaches work the best.

    And all the while you are getting free traffic.

    When I took your excellent Video Sales Tactics course I gave myself a 51 day challenge. In the end I created over 60 new videos which have gotten me a total of over 20,000 views in under a year.

    Great podcast, Robert!

  18. Hey there are using WordPress for your site platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own.
    Do you require any html coding expertise to make your own blog?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  19. Hi there friends, how is everything, and what you want to say regarding this
    piece of writing, in my view its truly remarkable in support of me.

  20. Melanie says:

    I just punched out a bunch of 5min videos for a private membership site. I’d only done a couple before that. So much easier to do them as a batch. Next step is to put a few ‘in the wild’ to get more reach. This podcast is great info again.

  21. TMerksi says:

    Great fan of Camtasia, but I haven’t really been video marketing or doing video posts too often yet. Wrapped up in other things I guess. Thanks for sharing your podcast and getting into the nitty gritty about all the programs you use and how. Very helpful.

  22. travian says:

    I love your effort, Robert. You have given some very useful information.

    Is there any text version of the audio? I prefer to read instead of listening to something. But anyway, I appreciate you have given us this podcast.

  23. cartman says:

    I am really grateful for all the useful information on this podcast.

    You have mentioned some very good points. I loved how you gave us technical details of the softwares you use for your activities.

    You talked about how important it is to connect with your best customers. I definitely loved that part.

    Keep it up, Robert.

  24. novicemoneymaker says:

    I have never heard about Camtasia and FreeMind before, thanks to this podcast I now know about these.

    Video sales letter can be very effective, if you can make it correctly.

    I loved this podcast, Robert. I give you 5/5.

  25. weebly-fan says:

    Your podcast is a masterpiece, Robert. I loved every single bit of it.

    Thanks to this podcast, I now know what to do in order to make a proper video sales letter. I am planning to launch my own products, so definitely this podcast is helpful for me.

  26. Smitty says:

    I’ve used Camtasia in the past, but your podcast definitely gave me some new ideas to explore. It really is amazing how quickly you can throw something quality together than will get even more interest than an article or blog post. People like video. Simple as that.

  27. Chris says:

    Awesome information so easily explained. Your podcast is really helpful. I’m considering getting into webinars and video tutorials for my project, so this is the perfect post for me to see today.

  28. Larry K. says:

    Excellent, easy-to-use information here. I think I’ve finally found the site to study to learn how to earn the type of money I want to online. Especially with making videos. I really think video is the way to go in the future.

  29. Debbie says:

    Great podcast. I’ve been looking into YouTube as a way to increase my online income for a while now, but I’m not the most tech savvy person out there. You broke it down pretty easily for me.
