Surely you've noticed the enthusiastic talk lately about how easy it is to put video on your web site or blog. In the past you had to enlist the help of a professional producer to get even the most simplistic video on your site. That could cost several thousand dollars, and even then, most visitors would have a hard time viewing your video.
No more. Today's technology has leaped forward to make professional-looking video a reality for any site or blog. You can also easily deliver video to iPods and embeded in emails.
Imagine sending an email to a customer that includes a video that shows her how to use your product or service. Your sales conversion rate skyrockets!
Got valuable information people will pay to know? Create a video showing how to do the task, then sell pay-per-view opportunities to see your video. The technology to do this is simple, ready, and dirt cheap.
And you don't have to have fancy equipment or complicated training to use this stuff. It's all cheap or free, and you needn't do anything more than point and click your way through the user-friendly system.
Even more exciting than how you can use this new video technology to sell your current products and services, is how HUGE the opportunity is to make money on the massive social trend this video technology is unleashing.
Just take a moment to remember how instant messaging has taken over. Now millions of people worldwide check AIM and other IM accounts throughout the day to see who's online. Cell phone text messaging has also taken over in schools and offices worldwide.
Consider how vast the change will be when people can send personal videos to computers, iPods, and even cell phones. That technology is already available, and people worldwide are starting to jump on board.
You can already sign up to earn commissions when people start to use this technology. Just consider that MySpace has 62 million members and Friendster has 24 million members. The demand for technology that builds online communities is proven. The rush to incorporate video into this already established social trend will be the Net's next Gold Rush -- and it could easily dwarf what we've seen before.
