Video Marketing was becoming much too complicated. And if it isn’t too complicated for some people, it’s still definitely too time consuming.

You had to worry about the following:

  • Redoing videos over and over again to make sure you got everything right in one take or face the daunting task of loading your raw video into Camtasia or another editor to make everything perfect.
  • Making sure your videos were optimized for the web (So they looked good and didn’t take too long to start playing).
  • Having a different mobile version of your videos to show users of iPhone, iPad, Android and other mobile devices (More and more people are doing most of the web viewing from their smart phones and other mobile devices).
  • Basically using “duct-tape” to try and put all the pieces together with Camtasia, Screenflow, Jing, Handbrake while continually looking for the “perfect” solution to make it all easier or less time consuming.
  • Uploading large files to your own server, Youtube, Amazon S3 or other video hosting service.
  • Getting the proper code in place to display your videos with the hope that mobile devices would be able to see the mobile version of your video.

Well, someone has finally done something about it. Josh Bartlett, the creator of the industries leading video player called Easy Video Player, has truly done something innovative in video marketing.

His Easy Video Player software had game-changing features two years ago that other video marketing solutions have just recently tried to introduce.

And on top of that, Josh could boast about the following:

  • Tens of thousands of satisfied customers.
  • The lowest refund rate in the industry for Clickbank (Only 2%).
  • More top marketers and 6 to 7 figure launches use Easy Video Player than anything else. (Mike Filsaime, Chris Farrel, Ryan Deiss, Jason Moffatt, Maria Andros, Justin Brooketo name a few).

Rather than throw in a few, new and “cool” features and re-launch his product simply for the money, he listened to his customers and did something else. He took over two years and hundreds of thousands of his own dollars to create something that will change the way you market your business with videos. You’ll now be able to record, edit, publish, market and track all your videos with one, easy-to-use solution.

Josh is releasing this all-in-one video marketing solution on January 15th, 2013 with a free video series leading up to the launch. Watch the first video here.

He’s going to reveal the story about his journey and passion that led him to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars from his own pocket to create the ultimate video marketing solution.

And how you can now do the following:

  • Drag and drop your video into a desktop application (Mac and Pc Compatible) that will optimize and convert your video for the web, let you edit if needed, upload it and give you the code to copy and paste to your website.
  • Record your screen or face camera from within this application and even draw on the screen.
  • Never worry about whether users on mobile devices can see your videos (It creates and displays a mobile version of your videos for you).
  • Split test your videos to see which ones are shared the most, have the most engagement and which versions make the most money.

That’s just scratching the surface… What all this ultimately means for you is that marketing your business with videos is going to be much, much easier. And you’ll make a ton more money while having more time to do what you love.

Anyways… Josh is also going to demonstrate the amazing power of his creation in this series.

So go see how video marketing has evolved.

fiverr promotes adsense click fraud

Hey Google! Why is fiverr.com still online when they are allowing gig sellers to offer fraudulent clicks on adsense ads. This is being allowed on a massive scale and fiverr is doing nothing to stop it from happening. This is clearly against Google’s Adsense TOS.

Now, If I were to buy one of these gigs (clicks) and Google found out about my “fraudulent activity”, my Adsense account would be immediately disabled.

Why is Fiverr blatantly allowing these fraudulent gigs to be sold on their site by hundreds of sellers while turning a blind eye to it? This fraud leads to huge financial losses for Google and drives up the price of Adwords for every small business owner that wants to buy advertising to compete online. Why is it the little guy always gets short changed while sites like fiverr that make a lot of money get to roam free and allow this activity to go on.

Here is number 5 from the Google Adsense TOS:

5. Prohibited Uses. You shall not, and shall not authorize or encourage any third party to: (i) directly or indirectly generate queries, Referral Events, or impressions of or clicks on any Ad, Link, Search Result, or Referral Button  (including without limitation by clicking on “play” for any video Ad) through any automated, deceptive, fraudulent or other invalid means, including but not limited to through repeated manual clicks, the use of robots or other automated query tools and/or computer generated search requests, and/or the unauthorized use of other search engine optimization services and/or software; (ii) edit, modify, filter, truncate or change the order of the information contained in any Ad, Link, Ad Unit, Search Result, or Referral Button, or remove, obscure or minimize any Ad, Link, Ad Unit, Search Result, or Referral Button in any way without authorization from Google; (iii) frame, minimize, remove or otherwise inhibit the full and complete display of any Web page accessed by an end user after clicking on any part of an Ad (“Advertiser Page”), any Search Results Page, or any Referral Page; (iv) redirect an end user away from any Advertiser Page, Search Results Page, or Referral Page; provide a version of the Advertiser Page, Search Results Page, or Referral Page that is different from the page an end user would access by going directly to the Advertiser Page, Search Results Page, or Referral Page; intersperse any content between the Ad and the Advertiser Page, between the page containing the Search Box and the Search Results Page, or between the Referral Button and the Referral Page; or otherwise provide anything other than a direct link from an Ad to an Advertiser Page, from the page containing the Search Box to the Search Results Page, or from the Referral Button to the Referral Page; (v) display any Ad(s), Link(s), or Referral Button(s) on any Web page or any Web site that contains any pornographic, hate-related, violent, or illegal content; (vi) directly or indirectly access, launch, and/or activate Ads, Links, Search Results, or Referral Buttons through or from, or otherwise incorporate the Ads, Links, Search Results, or Referral Buttons in, any software application, Web site, or other means other than Your Property(ies), and then only to the extent expressly permitted by this Agreement; (vii) “crawl”, “spider”, index or in any non-transitory manner store or cache information obtained from any Ads, Links, Search Results, or Referral Events, or any part, copy, or derivative thereto; (viii) act in any way that violates any Program Policies posted on the Google Web Site, as may be revised from time to time, or any other agreement between You and Google (including without limitation the Google AdWords program terms); (ix) disseminate malware; (x) create a new account to use the Program after Google has terminated this Agreement with You as a result of your breach of this Agreement; or (xi) engage in any action or practice that reflects poorly on Google or otherwise disparages or devalues Google’s reputation or goodwill. You acknowledge that any attempted participation or violation of any of the foregoing is a material breach of this Agreement and that we may pursue any and all applicable legal and equitable remedies against You, including an immediate suspension of Your account or termination of this Agreement, and the pursuit of all available civil or criminal remedies.

As you can see having someone blatantly click on your ads is against Adsense TOS, it is also Fraud. Yet Fiverr is allowing its users to sell these fraudulent gigs on their site while the moderators responsible for the quality control on their site are turning a blind eye.

Take a look for yourself at the following search query on fiverr.com for “adsense clicks”.  At the time of this blog post it returned 397 best match search results for that query.  Click for screen shot This screen shot was taken on 02-06-2012. As you can see 12 of the first 15 results are gigs for adsense click fraud.  I do not think I need to go any further.

You can also search for “adsense” and you will see in the neighborhood of 1000 results with many sellers offering to “approve” your adsense account with in 24 hours, etc. I thought only Google could approve your Adsense account? That is hundreds of gig offering to commit click fraud for you.

 

Why isn’t Google going after Fiverr.com since this is happening on their site, under their watch. They have a responsibility to remove illegal activity by sellers from their site. If they continue to allow it, they, themselves are just as guilty and their website should be removed from the Internet immediately. At the very least they should be removed from U.S. search results.

Not only is Fiverr costing Google thousands of dollars every day in fraudulent clicks, Fiverr.com is keeping $1 for every gig that is sold on their site.

Affiliate Millionaire Review..

Affiliate Marketing is one of the fastest growing industries on the planet today and is only expected to get bigger. Recently a Home Study course “Affiliate Millionaire” was announced by Andrew Fox an affiliate who has sold over $1million of products just via sending email.

Fox claims ” I’ve been carrying out Affiliate Marketing since the year 2000 and have been stunned by the growth. For years I’ve been asked to produce a course on how I’ve managed to generated commission pay checks in excess of $70,000 in less than 7 days.

“Affiliate Millionaire is my answer to that”

Unlike your typical Internet Marketing product Fox has invested a lot in new technology to make Affiliate Millionaire something truly special.

“I think the current Internet Marketing Community was getting saturated with ‘copy cat’ ebooks and people were just getting sick of the hype. They didn’t know who to trust. I expanded my office, invested in the best video and studio equipment, hired specialist video productions experts and really raised the bar – I don’t think there is anything like this out there”

“I like helping changing the industry and if I can do that while helping people quit their job and become a full time affiliate even better”

Affiliate Millionaire was released on Tuesday 23rd February and a sell out is expected in record time.

“We are also releasing a limited number of copies and in the past some of my products have sold out in less than 24 hours.”

Affiliate Millionaire is easily 5 -10 times bigger than anything I’ve carried out before. How many affiliates have sold over $1million of products via email and revealed their secrets in a step by step program – my guess would be not many”

Affiliate Millionaire has a free sign up list where Andrew will be sharing some sneak video previews of the content inside the course.

twitter-mosaic-mugAs a business owner in today’s economy using the power of Social Networking with sites such as Twitter to connect with other businesses and customers in Minnesota and around the globe has become essential part of your business.

If you are not familiar with it by now, Twitter, is a social networking and micro-blogging tool that allows you to send 140 character updates to whoever is following your profile and to the public (global) Twitter stream. Although 140 characters may not seem like enough for meaningful information, you’d be surprised by how much you can fit into such little space. But, it’s the ability to have conversations with customers that makes Twitter extremely valuable to any ecommerce site.

With all of the mobile phones and other wireless devices  in the world is there going to be an M-Commerce (mobile commerce) Boom? Experts think not anytime soon in this article from emarketer.com.

Text $?

If there is going to be a mobile commerce revolution in the US, it’s not coming soon.

A 2008 Nielsen Mobile poll found that only 9.2 million US mobile subscribers purchased goods or services with their handset—a low figure when compared with a JPMorgan projection of 233 million total subscribers. Even lower next to eMarketer’s estimate of 270 million US mobile phone subscribers in 2008. ,/p>

I wanted to post a great find while surfing today. The Top 50 Media Resources courtesy of Website Magazine.

social mediaA September 2008 study from Universal McCann described a “new influencer landscape,” characterized by three trends: the rise in social media, the importance of digital friends, and the proliferation of influencer channels. According to the study, the impact of this phenomenon is threefold: an influence economy, the democratization of influence and the rise of the “super influencer.” While that might be a little philosophical for your average Web worker, it is clear that few have anticipated the meteoric rise of consumer generated content and social media. However, due to some growing pains (no practical business models) and mistakes caused by youthful over-exuberance, social media content is still considered by many to be in its infancy.

The use of social media does raise many questions for the population of Web workers and the Internet businesses that support them. Which sites are most important? What sort of time commitment should be made? How do we monitor our successes and failures? These questions and others are asked each and every day as those within the social media landscape learn from their collective experiences.

This edition of Website Magazine features 50 of the top social media resources available on the Internet. While you may find some of your favorite micro-social networks absent from the list, keep in mind that this is one sample from the overall behavior of one subset of the entire Web population. The list does, however, provide a valuable look as to where the mass of social Web users spend their time, sharing content and visiting sites in droves. Research for this report comes courtesy of Ranking.com, the Web’s largest provider of website popularity metrics and detailed website information on more than one million online destinations. To suggest a Top50 category for consideration in upcoming issues of Website Magazine, please visit us online or email Top50@WebsiteMagazine.com.
