C54 youtube videos worksheet

  1. 1. YouTube Videos © 2009, Patrick Schwerdtfeger Record Simple Authentic Videos □ Buy a FLIP video recorder or a camcorder with an external microphone jack. □ Videos don’t need to be fancy. Amateur-looking videos look more authentic. □ Use Windows Movie Maker (PC) or iMovie (Mac) to crop and edit your videos. □ Make short 2 to 3-minute videos. YouTube viewers don’t like long videos. Notes Create Your Channel □ A “channel” is just an account but choose a good username for the URL. □ Link to your YouTube channel from everywhere and announce new uploads. □ Integrate your channel with Facebook, FriendFeed, Twitter and your blog. Notes Promotion Strategies □ Add “bumpers” at the beginning and end with your full contact information. □ Include your primary URL on the “lower third” overlay of the entire video. □ YouTube selects the exact mid-point for the thumbnail so plan accordingly. Notes Optimize Your Videos □ Select a primary targeted keyword phrase for each video you publish. □ Optimize the video title, description and tags with the keyword phrase. □ Ask your audience to watch & rate the videos. Ratings contribute to ranking. Notes www.WebifyBook.com
