    Hey everyone,
    (Btw Mods I hope this is in the right place. If not feel free to delete or move.)

    I know I have gone a bit over my 100th post but here is what I plan on giving back to the community that has helped me so much over the past few months!

    So now you are going to probably flame me for this but whatever. I was searching youtube one day while I was bored and found this video below.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xngHvDA-PRs&annotation_id=annotation_581365&feature=iv

    Yeah i know its from a kids game but thats not what inspired me. I saw toward the end of this video that you could use annotations for youtube. Now until this time I was unaware of this and was intrigued. I got talking to another BHW member who had intro'd me to the videos that "tube ninja" had put out on using annotations. I got to thinking about how Frank Kern one of those "self proclaimed gurus" said that the long copy sales letter is dead/not converting well these days. After a few minutes I got the idea of providing several small videos making up the parts of a sales letter. and attaching them all using annotations.

    Point being here is instead of having someone read or in most cases skip over a sales letter you wrote why not produce an introduction video saying Hi I am Mr. Smith from xyz.com What would you like to hear about first?

    Buttons appear for "About me", My product benefits, about my product, and now with the innovation from one of our members here at BHW have a place to post a link for our website and form for opt-in. The user then can press one of these buttons to learn more about that specific section...

    So instead of a person skimming through all that copy they can skip directly to what they want to hear about and move on. I have pdf's made up but not uploaded to the DL section. but will update when I do. Hope this helps someone out and feel free to PM if you need a better explanation or help.

    Yes that is a better example but the one in the original post is what got me thinking outside of the box so to speak.
