Shooting video for your site can be time consuming or even scary.
If you haven’t put video on your site before, you might be wondering what software to use, what you should include in your video, how much time it will take or why you should even bother.
In this 6-minute video I’ll teach you 4 easy ways to create great videos for your own site:
There are lots of great reasons to include video on your site, and if done right, you can actually save yourself time using video vs. regular written content.
Video is a great way to make a deeper connection with some of your audience because they’ll get to see and hear you. Video might open your site up to a whole new audience because some people prefer to consume content in the video format instead of regular written content.
Side note: I started to write this post and realized how silly it was to write a post about video. I stopped writing and instead took a video for this post showing you how to do it.

Samurai Sales Videos
For many of the Traffic School videos, I relied on Samurai Sales Videos. They’ve done a fantastic job. I’ve received lots of positive comments about the videos they produced for me, and like I said, Traffic School sold out in 36 hours using their video techniques.
I highly recommend them if you’re looking for a killer sales video or a great presentation video like I used in Traffic School.
If you’re interested, the guys at Samurai Sales Videos created a special discount for Think Traffic readers. Just enter the code “CORBETT” for a $50 discount.
