    If you're looking for a way to get your website presentation to stand out and really captivate your audience, look to the video. Not only are videos easy to publish in a website, but they can deliver results. Adding a video or two will break up your content in a smooth and effective way that will keep your audience more focused and engaged with the overall content.

    Here are five ways that video can make all the difference:

    1. Videos Give Your Company a Personality:
    Promotional Videos of your company added to your websites give life to them. They draw attention of customers and make them feel what kind of people are you and what traits you got. Its a nice way to describe the personality of company.

    2. Its Entertaining:
    Providing videos on Website always entertain people. Its better way to make people know about you or your business, rather then a silent presentation on a website. Videos give a reason to people to stay on website and research.

    3. A Visual Experience:
    People tend to look for a visual experience when surfing the web, and video has an inherent appeal to audiences. Most of us would prefer to ‘see' something before we are forced to ‘read' something. While we tend to skim through any large blocks of written material, we will almost certainly take the time to watch a professionally produced video presentation.

    4. Boost Traffic to Your Website:
    People love entertaining content and videos. So definitely they themselves will share it on their network everywhere, and it will help in boosting the traffic on website.


    5. Versatility:
    A video which has been produced for your website can be repurposed elsewhere. The cost can be leveraged by distributing the video offline on DVD as a general sales tool.

    You didn't fix anything - you just deleted one of your stolen bits of content. And what's left is still stolen.

    Ironic that you steal content that talks about using original content - and then attribute credit to your own website.

    It jars me when people try to portray themselves as knowledgeable and helpful by stealing content from other people - and it's often a precursor to trying to sell some shite to unsuspecting newbies.

    For the record - here is your original post, followed by the content you stole with links to the sources:

    And here are the originals with links to the sources:

    Be Entertaining
    Don't feel as though you need to limit your video to merely being informative, it can also so be entertaining. It can even be, dare we say, FUNNY! In fact, unless the video is of a technical or legal nature, you should make an effort to have the video be entertaining as well as informative

    Drive Traffic to Your Website
    Search engines LOVE new content, whether it is fresh copy, a new blog post, a press release, or a custom video. Every time you add content, your search engine rankings will see an uptick. So, why not go the extra mile and make that fresh content a custom video? You can even multiply the search engine bump by using targeted keywords (limit to 1-2) in the video title, tags and description. Don't just add the video to your website, create a channel on YouTube (did we mention that Google owns YouTube) to really maximize the SEO benefit as the result of your video (make sure you use key words to promote on YouTube) being on multiple locations, with none of the duplicate content issues.

    It's Visual
    People tend to look for a visual experience when surfing the web, and video has an inherent appeal to audiences. Most of us would prefer to see something before we are forced to read it. While we tend to skim through any large blocks of written material, we'll usually take the time to watch a professionally produced video.

    It's Versatile
    A video which has been produced for your website can be re-purposed for use elsewhere. For example, the cost can be leveraged by distributing the video offline on DVD as a general sales tool

    Man it was so obvious that you found this elsewhere and just copied it. You could have at least rewritten it.

    Stealing someone's content, naming it as yours and taking the credit as if you have crafted them on your own. Poor guy, you are not a man of honor!

    I'm afraid that videos could slow the connection of my visitors, specially from mobile devices. But yes, videos are a must in a blog/site

    About sharing the videos
    I Only noticed those weird , funny , videos people tend to share...:(

    for most of us doing niches in IM ...is kinda a bit hard people will share..even IM among ourselves I do saw one IM video before..this fellow trying to add some humor on his video promoting IM products..
    but I see is like a clown trying to be funny ...you see ....

    so I wonder you all agreed with me..
    and perhaps some bros have some tips and willing to share here?
