What’s the difference between Live video, Native Video, and Video Links

If you’ve logged onto any social media sites lately, you will have noticed that there is TONS of video! Video is currently more than 1/3 of the content that we consume while we’re online, and this trend continues to grow. Video content is an essential medium in 2018, and it will continue to be vital in 2019 and beyond. 


I love live video, as you know, but there are other options. The three options are native video, a link to a video site, and of course, live video. In this video I share the difference between the 3 and how you can make the biggest impact with your online presence!

Super Bowl Ads vs Live Video

On Sunday, along with millions of others, I was watching the Super Bowl. Now, my level of caring about this game was low. I didn’t really care who won (though I was hoping not the patriots again). And I also don’t really know any of the Eagles players. My mind started wandering, and as I was watching the commercials I was thinking I wonder how much do these companies pay for Super Bowl ad space? 


The answer:  $5 MILLION DOLLARS! For 30 seconds.  


This opened a new train of thought for me: Is this why many small businesses don’t bother with marketing? Is it because they think doing anything to put themselves out there is going to be so expensive that it isn’t worth it? 


You don’t need to invest $5 million in advertising. That’s because Live video has forever changed the way that businesses market themselves. Live video is truly a disruptive technology that is changing the paradigm around marketing and advertising. It gives everyone the opportunity to share their message without the huge bill that comes with TV ads. 
In this video, I share 3 reasons why LIVE VIDEO can help you score, A TOUCHDOWN, in your business! (was that too corny?)

Where do my potential customers hang out online?

If you are a business owner, you have no doubt heard all kinds of conflicting information about where you should be spending your time on social media. Some people say LinkedIn is the best because it’s for professionals, other say you gotta be on Twitter, that’s where communities are built, some are adamant that you need to be on Facebook, and now everyone's saying that you need to be on Instagram. And Snapchat? What the heck is that?

Well holy crap, you don’t have the time to dedicate yourself to all of these places. You have work to do aside from social media - If you joined every platform, you would never get any work done!

So for starters. You do not need to be everywhere. Unless you have a team dedicated to social media, I really advise against trying to be in all places. I recommend choosing 1 platform that will be your main place, then maybe a secondary platform if you have the bandwidth. It’s way better to do 1 or 2 well, than 3 or 4 poorly. You’re better off not having a presence on a site than to have a bad one – it really does do you a disservice and you absolutely lose points in the eyes of your potential customers if they stumble upon a neglected profile.

So where should you be spending your time? Watch the video to hear my recommendations.
