Adding Video to Social Media Outreach

Social Media Examiner has once again provided an invaluable “10 Steps” tips.  This time its about how to add video to your blog and by extension to your website.  The advice covers all aspects of shooting and disseminating video content

WordPress Rules!

Once again, the WordPress platform comes out on top because of the range, wealth and quality of plug-ins that allow you to take advantage of new technology and SEO.  Websites are quickly morphing into social networking hubs and having an open source platform like WordPress allows you take advantage of the latest trends without having to re-code your website.

Skype as a Video Recording

Today’s Friday Freebie feature (see below) is a free Skype video recorder that will allow you to take advantage of Internet calls for purposes of recording and disseminating video.  I would be concerned with quality but I’m not sure that short, punchy videos of marginal quality hurt you.  Just make sure the content is powerful enough and that you don’t use it if you need to post a video of several minutes or more.  The rule about quickly glanceable web content applies even more so to video content – keep it short.
