How To Give Your Videos A Boost Of Energy

In yesterday’s post I mentioned a new conversion-boosting hack that’s been added to Content Samurai that can also be done to your videos, even without using Content Samurai.

But, if you didn’t watch the video you wouldn’t know what that hack is…let me explain it…

What’s the hack?

The hack is a new feature in Content Samurai called “Energy Boost”, and it gives you the ability to instantly increase the engagement, retention and conversion level of EVERY video you make!

Why is Energy Boost so important?

You see, the key to effective selling online is => EMOTION.

If you have a dull or boring voice track, then people won’t engage with your videos, or buy your products.

BUT, if you inject energy into your voice track, then people WILL engage with your videos, and be much more likely to buy.

How does Energy Boost work?

The all new Energy Boost feature allows you to vary the speed of any voice track with a single click of your mouse!

If your voice track sounds a little dull, you just drag a slider and click your mouse to instantly transform the speed and energy level of your video!

To see how this world first Energy Boost feature can help you create engaging, high impact videos to grow your business in 2019, click here.

How can you replicate the Energy Boost feature without Content Samurai?

Now I love Content Samurai and think it’s one of the best video creation tools available, but I know not everyone will choose to use it.

Two ideas for replicating the “Energy Boost” feature…

  1. Be aware of your energy level and vocal speed when you record your videos and make a conscious effort to be more energetic.
  2. Many video editing programs enable you to increase the speed of your videos. Even a slight increase could boost the perceived energy level.

I definitely think the easiest way to create videos and utilize this new Energy Boost feature is to grab Content Samurai.

This week you can get it for 40% off for life.

Content Samurai, Animoto Or Lumen5 – Which Online Video Software Is Worth Your Time?

One question I often see online is…

How does Content Samurai stack up against Animoto & Lumen5?

Just to be clear, I don’t believe in bad-mouthing anyone’s products. Animoto and Lumen5 are both very popular products and do a great job of creating videos for social media.

I’ve tested all three tools and all have their strengths and weaknesses.

However, the one thing you need to remember when comparing video creation tools is that…

Likes And Shares Don’t Pay The Bills!

You see there is a lot more to creating a profitable business than just getting likes and shares on social media.

In order to build a profitable business you really need to do 4 things…

  • Generate traffic (Social media videos can be great for this)
  • Build trust with your audience (A great way to do this is to give away useful content for free)
  • Effectively sell your product or service (This is the area most people struggle with)
  • Deliver a great product (Video based courses are a great way to go)

Content Samurai is the only video creation platform available today that helps you create ALL the videos your business needs – social media videos, trust building videos, sales videos and videos for your online courses.

Below is a sample video I created for the special deal Content Samurai is offering. It utilizes the Video Clip Library to help make the video more engaging…

With Content Samurai I was able to create this video in about 20 minutes…

…most of that time was just trying to pick the right pictures and videos from their vast media library!

In addition the the recently added Video Clip Library, Content Samurai also recently introduced their Auto-Voice feature which uses text-to-speech technology to automatically turn your video script into spoken word.

This is a great way to produce quality videos without recording your own voice or putting yourself on camera.

Here’s a quick break down on how the three products compare:


So if all you want to do is generate likes and shares on social media, Animoto and Lumen5 will probably do the job.

But if you want to build a profitable business, Content Samurai is the obvious choice!

I hope that helps clear things up 🙂

The Truth About The September 25th YouTube Change

Beginning on September 25th, 2018, YouTube is making two changes that affect every one that embeds videos on optin pages, sales pages or websites.

Please keep in mind, these changes only affect YouTube videos that are embedded on your web pages.

But, these changes can seriously degrade the user experience you want your visitors to have on your sales pages or websites.

Change #1 – Related Videos Will Always Be Shown

Typically, when YouTube videos are embedded on sales pages the rel parameter is set to 0 to prevent related videos from being shown at the end of the video.

This is done to keep the sales page experience clean, and to avoid having competing videos show up in the related videos.

On or after September 25, 2018 this behavior changes as detailed below:

The behavior for the rel parameter is changing on or after September 25, 2018. The effect of the change is that you will not be able to disable related videos. However, you will have the option of specifying that the related videos shown in the player should be from the same channel as the video that was just played.

To be more specific:

  • Prior to the change, if the parameter’s value is set to 0, then the player does not show related videos.
  • After the change, if the rel parameter is set to 0, the player will show related videos that are from the same channel as the video that was just played.

Having related videos at the end of a video on any web page creates a distraction for the viewer, and can entice them to click away from your site.

It’s nice of YouTube to allow us to force the related videos to be from our channel, but the change still detracts from the clean, distraction-less sales pages we’re used to and that we want our visitors to experience.

Change #2 – Video Info Will Always Be Shown

Here’s a direct quote:

The showinfo parameter, which indicates whether the player should display information like the video title and uploader before the video starts playing, is also being deprecated. Following the change, the channel avatar and video title will always display before playback begins, when playback is paused, and when playback ends. The avatar being displayed is new behavior that will be consistent across all embedded players.

Again, YouTube’s change is messing with the experience we are trying to create for the visitors on OUR websites.

So, what are marketers and business owners to do to protect your websites from these changes?

I created a video talking about it, have a look…(or skip to my conclusion below)

In conclusion, here are 2 ways to avoid being affected by the September 25th YouTube change:

  1. Don’t use YouTube as your video host. Host your videos on Vimeo or Amazon S3 or your web hosting.
  2. Use a video player that can overcome the Sept. 25th changes, as well as help with the video autoplay issue that Chrome and Safari have cracked down on.

One thing to note, if you mainly use YouTube embeds as a means of boosting the rankings of your videos (SEO) then you definitely want to keep using the YouTube embed codes. Just make sure you utilize the rel=0 or whatever the new parameter will be to force the related videos to be videos from your channel.

If you want to keep using YouTube as your video host AND want full control over the video experience on your optin pages, sales pages and websites…I recommend using a video player.

Explaindio Player is a simple, cloud-based video player that returns control of your website’s video experience to you. For a limited time, there’s a 14-day free trial available for Explaindio Player.

The Truth About Ranking Videos On YouTube and Google

One of the things I’ve noticed about the Live Event Blaster 2 (LEB 2) re-launch is…

…there’s a lot of HYPE!

I guess there always is on these product launches…and I’m guilty of doing it myself. 😦

But, in this particular case it bugs me for two reasons…

1. The hype makes LEB 2 sound like every other overly-hyped software that’s been released over the past few years. But in reality, LEB is one of the most solid pieces of software I’ve ever used and it actually does it what it says it will do!

2. There is much more to video ranking than simply scheduling a live event or streaming a video.

The truth…

1. YT Live Events typically do see a ranking boost over uploaded videos. Sometimes those rankings stick and sometimes they don’t…just like with anything else.

2. Live Event Blaster 2, in my opinion based on using other tools, is the simplest tool for creating YT live events and streaming pre-recorded videos to populate those live events.

3. Proper keyword research and proper ‘on page’ YT optimization is crucial for ranking success.

4. The strength of the COMPETITION for a given search phrase MATTERS, especially in Google results.

5. Google WILL NOT show video results for all search phrases, so trying to rank for certain search phrases WITH or WITHOUT LEB 2 is futile.

To be completely honest…

I haven’t used LEB 2 as much on my Rave Review YT channel lately because I’ve been testing other ranking methods that require me to upload the videos instead of stream them.

I have continued to use LEB 2 with some of my other YT channels, especially ones that target local search phrases.

But, I’m being extremely sincere when I say that Live Event Blaster has been, and will continue to be one of the most used tools in my video arsenal.

My top 3 most used video tools are Camtasia, Content Samurai and Live Event Blaster 2.

A proven tool using a proven method…

Live Event Blaster has been around for a couple of years now and version 2 makes it even better. The Blaster Team is well respected for producing quality software, as well as providing great support and training.

And the proof of higher rankings with live events has been proven for several years now, and does not appear to be going anywhere any time soon.

My exclusive bonus…

In additional to the bonuses the Blaster Team is providing, I’ve created a 7-video training on how to do the keyword research, the importance of good thumbnails, guidance on optimizing your Title, Description and Tags and more.

Between the proven software, the proven method, the training the Blaster Team is giving and the exclusive training I’m providing you will be well equipped to succeed with Live Event Blaster 2.

If you do anything with YouTube video marketing, Live Event Blaster 2 is a great tool to have in your arsenal.
