When it comes to making video content, there definitely is a learning curve. If you have no experience with video publishing, your first video will most likely suck.The first step is to get some content created, make it the best you can and put it out there. Then listen to any feedback you can gather and keep refining your technique. Like blog posting or writing a book; you slowly get better and better and soon you’ll be producing really high quality content.
Make your video relatable to the product your trying to sell. There’s no point making a video about the latest fishing rods if you’re trying to peddle apple iPhones. The people viewing your videos are interested in the content- so give them something relatable that they might enjoy.Don’t create obnoxious, loud, over-saturated videos. If you don’t have a lot to say, that’s fine; don’t pad it out with long introductions or repeatedly talking about the same information.
Get decent quality footage. At the bare minimum, you should be uploading your videos in 720 HD, but now more than ever the default quality is becoming 1080 HD and in some cases even 4k.If you’re going to provide commentary, make sure you have a decent mic. The sound quality is really noticeable when you buy cheap mics and it can immediately put off your viewers. Don’t make your videos sound like they’re being streamed over a 56kb connection.
Engage with your audience. Reply to comments, Tweets, Facebook comments and everything else. Answer emails if people have questions. More often than not, you’ll find even more content to make in these questions than you would coming up with it on your own.If you have limited budget, don’t be afraid to use trial versions of software. I used Adobe Premier to make my AffiliateTube YouTube intro (the trial is 30 days, it took me less than 5). There’s also plenty of free software you can use too. Do you research and hustle as much as possible. When you start earning money, feel free to reinvest it into your venture and buy something with a little more quality.
When providing affiliate links, you want to do is discreetly but also so that the user will actually see it. You can place links in your description (mention this in your video) or even put annotations in your videos for people to click. I wouldn’t spam your videos with links, otherwise people will just see you videos as pushy and trying to sell something. The best way is to appear genuine and honest.
Make sure you’re excited about the video as much as you want your audience to be. If you show no enthusiasm for your video, talk in dull voice or slow monotone style, how do you expect your audience to feel influenced by you? The best Affiliate Youtubers are masters of this craft; they make you want to buy the product but they are also entertaining and provide information in an attention grabbing way.
