The Best Way To Use Youtube With WordPress

Video is becoming increasingly important online. With broadband speeds going up all around the world more and more people are preferring video as their content format of choice – Both for recreational and educational use.

Just take a look at these jaw dropping stats from Youtube…

This was the reason why we developed our Covert Video Press theme – and the popularity of video is reflected in the fact that it’s still our all time best seller among all our WordPress Themes & Plugins.

You could upload videos to Youtube as part of your marketing strategy (and you should).

But there are some problems…

  • You have to create your own videos – which takes a lot of time and quite frankly can be a huge pain in the butt.
  • You are competing with the other 800,000 videos uploaded the same day as your video – and if you don’t have your own traffic to bring to the mix you are going to be one of the many videos stuck on 10 views (9 of them your own).
  • Every video you upload is just building up Youtube/Google’s content portfolio and real estate – and the end of the day they are the ones profiting from your hard work.
  • If you’re lucky (and that is a big “if”), you might get invited to their partner program so you can earn a few pennies from Adsense.

Now I’m not knocking Youtube as a marketing platform – it has it’s uses

But there is a better way!

A way to turn the tables and make Youtube and Google do the hard work for you – while you stay in control and reap all the benefits!

So even though it does not make sense to try and compete directly with Youtube

Making your site look, feel and work like Youtube and feeding off all their content does make a lot of sense!

As you already know we do most of our stuff on WordPress – so we naturally set out to create a theme that would do just that…

  • Mimic Youtube and other big video sites, and serve up videos in the highly addictive tube format, well known and loved by billions of people around the world.
  • Legally piggy back of other people’s work and let you build huge video sites without ever creating a single video yourself.
  • Stay in complete control over what content is being showed on your site – and more importantly over the ads… with you pocketing 100% of the revenue instead of sharing the scraps from the big Google table.

And after 3 months of hard work and endless testing – the result was our Covert Video Press theme.

We tested it on our own sites and the results where through the roof!

And now you can cash in on the video craze too – just click the banner below to see everything Covert Video Press can do for you…

How To Think Like A Wealthy Entrepreneur

In the last “Internet Marketing Sucks!” post we discussed how 94% of all internet marketers hardly make any money at all – and how a video course like Faster, Smarter, Better can help you be part of the 6% who do make a significant income online.

But as we also discussed here… knowledge (as important as it is), is not enough on it’s own. The key is to also think like a wealthy entrepreneur – let me illustrate that…

You’re in business because you want to make money, right?

Of course. You need to pay your bills, put food on the table and enjoy some of the finer things in life. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Your business should be profitable enough to take care of all your wants and needs.

But here’s the thing: If you focus solely on your needs and wants, your business is going to sink faster than a ten-pound brick.

You see, a good business person knows that profitable businesses sprout from the desire to help others. If you focus on your customer’s problem and how you can help him, your business will make more money than you know what to do with.

Really.

But some marketers get this backwards. Instead of focusing on their customers’ problems, they focus on their own problems. The business person starts thinking about the lifestyle he wants to achieve. He thinks about how much money he needs to make the mortgage this month. And he starts thinking in terms of “units” and prices.

Then the number crunching starts.

For example, “If 50 people buy my $100 product, I’ll make $5000 this month. But I need closer to $10,000 this month… so I need to find 100 people who’ll buy the product. Or I need to jack the price to $200. Or I need to…. (Well, you get the idea.)

And so the marketer runs off to create a killer promotion.

Except here’s the problem: He’s still crunching those numbers. He’s still thinking about what HE wants. And the prospect who’s reading these promos is starting to get the feeling that the marketer cares more about profits than about solving problems.

You’ve probably experienced this yourself as a customer. You get the sense that the marketer doesn’t even care about it. Maybe you felt this way because of a desperate, pushy email you received. Or perhaps you got this feeling the last time you negotiated a purchase with a slick used car dealer.

Your prospects feel the same way. They want to be treated with respect by marketers. They want marketers who truly care about them. And if they get the feeling that you don’t really care about them, they’ll take their business somewhere else.

But you can prevent this and keep more money in your pocket simply by making one simple mindset shift. Namely, instead of thinking about your problems (e.g., your mortgage and other bills), think about how to solve your customers’ problems. When you give people what they want, you naturally get what you want too.

Yes, it is really that simple.

However, that’s not the only mindset shift you need to make in order to grow a profitable business. You also need to find out how to think like a wealthy entrepreneur. You need to start thinking like a project manager and stop trading your time for meager earnings. You need to distance yourself from the toxic people who want to sabotage your success.

Fortunately, it’s not hard. And better yet, you can learn these secrets for free!

Internet Marketing Sucks!

You may be using some of our WP themes & plugins and maybe you have watched our WordPress Tutorial Videos. But even if you are now “king” of WordPress – you might still be thinking that…

Internet Marketing Sucks!

Okay I’ll rephrase that a little…

Internet Marketing (for most marketers) sucks!

Why…

According to a recent survey 94% of marketers make $500 OR LESS per month from their online business… (with the majority actually making NOTHING)

That SUCKS!

In the last “Do You Have What it Takes to Get Rich?” post we discussed how two different internet marketers can get vastly different results following the same system… And how an entrepreneurial mindset is the key.

But some times mindset is just not enough – some times you need to see how it’s all done, step-by-step and that’s why we have put together the Faster, Smarter, Better Videos for you.

If you’re business is not living up to your hopes and expectations and you would like to turn things round QUICKLY so you start seeing $3,000 – $5,000 per week then watch this video!

This has been in the works for the past year and I am so excited to be able to tell you about it. The Faster, Smarter, Better videos will show you (in detail) exactly how to set
up a business that brings in a minimum of $100,000+ per year – The kind of business that you can run on autopilot… and have a lot of fun with!

Yes I might be biased but I think you’ll soon agree that this is by far THE BEST TRAINING PROGRAM ONLINE today… and you won’t believe what we’ve done with the price either.

Seriously If you’re used to seeing high priced coaching programs from the gurus that make you take out a second mortgage or max out your credit cards… you will be ‘SHOCKED’ when you see this!

Do You Have What it Takes to Get Rich?

In the last post “What 90% Don’t Know About WordPress” I told you about our WordPress Video Tutorials. Now there is a curious thing about a training course like that…

You can drop the same money-making system in front of two people.

One person will take the system and go on to amass a huge fortune.

The other person will claim the system doesn’t work – and he might even go broke trying.

I’m not making this up. Look around the marketing forums and you’ll discover people who’ve been trying to make money for years. Then you’ll find others who are brand new to the game and already in profit.

Sometimes these people are using the exact same strategy – yet one fails and one succeeds!

Age has nothing to do with it. Neither does poverty. Or lack of education. Or disability. Or luck.

It all comes down to mindset.

It all comes down to…

Knowing How to Think Like a Rich and Successful Entrepreneur

You can see yourself as an entrepreneur, setting your own hours, being your own boss, enjoying the freedom of being self employed. And you can just imagine what life will be like once you’re a big success and pulling in all that cash.

But hang on. Before you run to the car showroom and test drive your dream car, let me ask you something: Are you cut out to be an entrepreneur? Do you really have what it takes to get rich?

To answer, let’s see how you rate on these five characteristics. Can you / do you:

* Stick with something even when you don’t yet see results? The day you officially start your business will be one of the most exciting days of your life. You’ll probably run on adrenaline for the next several days if not weeks.

But then you come down off your high. And now you’re working the same amount of hours, trying to get your business off the ground, but it’s just not as exciting any more. The worst thing, however, is that you’re not yet seeing results… so you don’t have any tangible rewards to motivate you and keep you moving forward.

Let me ask you this: Can you stick with something even if it doesn’t pay off immediately? If so, this whole entrepreneur thing might be for you.

* Let go of a losing idea? Trust me on this: When you spend days and weeks working on an idea, it will feel like your baby. And really it is, because it certainly is your brainchild.

But what happens if your idea doesn’t work out? What if one particular idea is just dragging down your whole business? Can you let go of it, even though you’re attached to it and still love it? If so, you might make a good entrepreneur.

* Have confidence in your abilities? People are going to doubt you. Some may even laugh at you. If you listen to them, the chances of you enjoying success are slim to none.

Are you confident in your abilities and your idea? If so, then you might make a good entrepreneur.

* Know the value of the products/services you provide? Here’s a big problem: Sometimes beginning entrepreneurs work like dogs for pennies. And a lot of times this happens because they don’t value the solutions they’re offering. The beginning business person thinks, “Gee, I wouldn’t pay that much for this product, so I better keep the price low.”

But you are not your market.  You are not your customer. And if you’re providing a good product or service with a high value to your customers, then you should charge them accordingly. If you’re charging too much, they’ll let you know.

But until then, you need to value the solutions you provide. And if you do value your products or services, then you might be a good entrepreneur.

* Solve problems?  Finally, and this is a big one, are you a problem solver?

Obviously, problem solving comes in handy when you’re an entrepreneur, because the buck stops with you in your business. There’s no boss to solve your problems – you’re the boss. So it’s up to you to uncover and solve problems in your business.

But here’s the bigger reason: You’re in the business of solving your customers’ problems! If you know how to spot and solve other people’s problems, then you might be a good entrepreneur.

As you know we develop and market a lot of cool WordPress plugins & themes. With such a portfolio of WordPress products we of course also answer a lot of support questions daily – and in doing so we discovered an interesting trend…

Now we are obviously happy to help and answer any support questions we get!

But we also believe that our customers will be much more successful using our products if they know their way around the basic blogging system that powers them.
