    YT is becoming more and more difficult. Anyone using the Traffic Geyer tool to get
    more traffic?

    Don't you run into issues of getting the video's taken down for being promotional / promoting CPA offers?

    If not, care to impart any tips on how you go about it?

    Haven't been near YT in awhile, got sidetracked when all the bots stopped working on it, I've Tube Automator, and it just didn't deliver the functions it stated. Must go back again soon and see if it has progressed over the new YT blocks and then might look at the whole area again.

    I used to do well with YT but it's slowed down for me. They're more strict now about removing videos and banning accounts. I tend to focus more on seo and ppc now. More lucrative, at least for me.

    Yeah, Youtube is def not dead. The other video sites still rank well but have greatly
    decreased in traffic (for me). In my line of work, I talk to a lot of people (mostly
    newer to IM and some even new to the internet) and there's another mass of
    traffic moving to Youtube.

    It's mostly older people--prob baby-boomers with nothing better to do than get on
    "AOL" and learn about FaceBook, Youtube and maybe Twitter--with some money to

    I've never really tried too much to sell straight off of a video, but video (Youtube being
    synonymous with video in most casual surfers minds) is unrivaled in warming people
    up and building the necessary "know, like and trust" required to garner sales.

    Here's one of my methods:

    -If you're not hideous and/or you have confidence then use yourself in your videos.
    This helps a lot. Obviously, you don't want to necessarily be associated and documented
    with some of the methods ya'll are using, but then hire talent. Real people work so much
    better than say, some cheesy-looking animoto slide-show.

    -I'll talk about some method that I'm using (which requires the tool/software/whatever
    that I'm intending to sell) and show how it's benefited me. Make a few jokes (if you're
    funny), be interesting (if possible) and give real value to the viewer (everyone should
    know how to do this).

    -I keep these types of videos short. 2-3 mins tops.

    -'Watermark' your video with your link/website

    -This one should be obvious, but make sure that you include the 'http://' at
    the beginning of your description on the right, followed by your site. This
    will make it a live (i.e. clickable) link.

    -At the end of the video, say something like: "For more information about how
    to best utilize this 'tool/product/whatever', go ahead and go to my website: __________"
    And then point to your left (which will point to the right on their screen, to your live,
    clickable link), or point down at your watermark/title that show your link, or w/e.
    Just make sure you give the viewer some kind of call-to-action to click and/or type in
    your link.

    -Personally, I point Youtube traffic to a landing/video-squeeze page but if you're
    promoting say, some CB/CJ product with a really good sales page then you can
    just throw traffic directly at it. I've been successful doing it both ways. Use your
    best judgement.

    -Just mentally commit at least one day's worth of work to it and you should be
    good to go.

    -Easy way: 2 min video showing results/methods of the product + call-to-action to click
    your live link in the video description on the right. Use or some other url shortener
    so it doesn't look too salesy.

    tip: buy traffic (for cheap) to your Youtube videos, say at least 10k or so. This is ramp
    up your views, and give you more authority in your viewers eyes, plus it seems to help
    rank the videos some within Youtube itself. I know personally that I put much more
    stock/faith/trust into someone with 10,000+ views compared to someone with 84 or w/e.

    -Traffic Geyser does work very well to rank your videos, and can indirectly bring you in
    valuable organic traffic. However, it's an intermediate (after you've been in 'the game' at
    least 90 days) tool and you're just going to be throwing your money into the with if you
    come out the gate trying to implement TG.

    -As of March 2010, I'm using SEnuke, Unique Article Wizard, TG, and craigslist (currently
    a major headache!) and a few others to drive real, targeted traffic to my videos, but if
    you don't have the know-how and/or money then just write articles and submit them to
    eZine + other directories until you're making enough sales to justify paying for these tools.

    Yes 'article marketing' still works. Come to think of it, everything still works
    and will prob continue to work for as long as new people are finding sites
    like Youtube.

    Remember, every one of the tools you're going to use to promote your videos has a
    learning curve that derails most people, so be prepared to spend a lot of time learning
    how to properly use them (we're talking at least a month!) and you may just consider

    I know most of you already learned this stuff in Video Marketing 101, but this is just to
    show the Youtube noobs that not only does it work, but IMO it's about to blow up
    (again) and it is worth it to quickly add Youtube know-how into your skill set before you
    miss this boat too! :)

    I'm obviously no expert, and I'm actually a slow learner, but I don't quit and
    I do have several methods which make me direct and indirect money, some of
    them I've scaled up to hundreds or more per month. Videos are basically
    residual too.

    Post questions here or PM me and I'll help anyone who's actually willing to
    work and learn and not have someone do it all for them. If that's the case,
    then I'll be more than happy to charge you. ;)

    If you read any of this post then you already know more than probably every
    viewer that will watch your video. So also remember to speak with 'authority'
    and conviction
    , like if they're (the viewer) not using your product then they're
    completely missing the boat.

    Honestly, you can make a video and post it up on Youtube and prob even make
    a decent landing page in less time that it took me to write this post.

    Now go do. There is no try.

    YouTube traffic is getting more and more difficult to come by, but I did notice that once your videos hits the +5k mark it really starts ranking for the more ''high search volume'' keywords.

    At least, in my (Videogaming) niche.
