Easy Video Suite Launch Videos

by Lon Naylor
One of the things I "dislike" about Camtasia and PowerPoint videos? Check them out here:   It was becoming much too complicated. And if it isn't too complicated for some people, it's still definitely too time consuming. You had to worry about the following: Redoing videos over and over again to make sure you got everything right in one take or face the daunting task of loading your raw video into Camtasia or another editor to make everything perfect. Making sure your videos were optimized for the web (So they looked good and didn't take too long to start playing). [...]

Webinars are the absolute core of my business. Every component of them from the PowerPoint presentations to a final edited recording of the event are solid gold content. Everything I am currently adding to my bottom line comes from them... I was been looking for an automated way to leverage them for over a year and I evaluated every system I can find. I decided on the Evergreen Business System (EBS) last November and have been using it since Janurary 2012. See the details of the product and a complete demo and Comparison Chart to competitors HERE: http://www.screencastprofits.com/tools/automatedwebinars I'm still using it.

OK folks. I see a LOT of people creating these 30 second special effects extravaganzas for Camtasia "Intro" clips. While these are fun 'n' all, they probably don't help your video marketing cause as much as one might think. Let's keep things simple and SHORT! Nobody cares about a flashy Flash splash clip...at least not as much as they just want to get on with the video content! Here's a little PowerPoint template and tutorial with a clean, simply, and elegant way to quickly introduce the topic of your video: Try it and let me know what you think! Here is [...]

Ripping off the Boss again

by Lon Naylor
While I keep up with what most video creators are doing, I can count the ones I follow and listen to on one hand. I don't follow many "marketing" gurus because most of them don't impress me much. And when there is someone who makes BOTH those lists in my book? Well...I pay close attention and...I rip them off! Andy Jenkins is a guy with mad video skills AND one of the smartest marketers around. I highly suggest you watch his latest video below and study it like I did. When you are finished, we'll take a look at some [...]

SiteSales System Review

I love making video training products, sales & marketing videos, great tutorial videos to help all you fine folks… But I HATE building websites to sell my video training courses! Even with WordPress as the platform, it’s always such a chore to “duct tape” everything together. Themes, pages, membership areas, payment processing, plugins, social media capabilities and sharing, hosting on cloud servers…geeze! I’ve been looking for a solution for quite a few years. I really liked the Kajabi platform when it came out but it is just so frickin’ expensive! I cancelled it almost immediately… Earlier this year I found [...]
