Why Video Might Be Harming Your Site

The downside of video content

I have a big secret to confess. I’ve been stuck on dial up for the last 13 years, only recently having been able to get high speed in my area. So during this time the video content phase has passed me by as I quickly left pages that tried to auto-load video content. I just couldn’t load it. Now I’m hitting the video content scene with gusto.

That gusto is quickly coming to an end however, and I’m becoming more and more annoyed with the way many people have tried to transfer over textual content to audio and video formats. Video and audio are exclusive to textual content.

Instead of my normal long winded rants I’ve boiled down my thoughts into a few key tips on what to do and what to avoid when creating audio or video content for your sites…


Video is intended as a way of reinforcing content. Avapro 300 mg. Other less common side effects of Avapro andPharmacy online. Avapro Buy 30 150mg pills for $34. Buy Avapro from Canada. If you plan on standing in front of a camera and reading your text out loud, and then using that video you’ve created in place of the text, you’re setting yourself up for failure. If what you are going to say can be written as text and I as a reader can quickly read it, then use text. Video can be used to show visuals, or to reinforce some of your key points, but not as a replacement for your textual content. The only exception being a video taped real-world presentatio Read about trazodone (Desyrel), a drug used for the treatment of depression, panic attacks, agoraphobia, cocaine withdrawal, and agressive behavior.

Please don’t waste my time making me have to spend 10 minutes listening to what you have to say, when I can speed read that same content in less than a minute.


Video on the net is still a new medium, in its infancy for many publishers and thus still fairly crude. However it has a big competitor - television which has many years experience. If you want some lessons on how to captivate your audience watch 10 minutes of MTV. They know how to keep their target audiences attention. Start with some basic visuals, other than yourself, or just your screen shots.


Go on YouTube, or Google Video and you’ll find many content type videos that start with the person walking from the camera (where they pressed record) to the wall as their background, ending with them walking to the camera and reaching over as the video ends. Take the 10 minutes it takes to import your video into an editor (use Windows Movie Maker if you need to!), cut those end and starting fumbles out and add a good fade to black at the end. You’ll immediately be above the majority of your competition out there with your simple but clean video.


If this text was hard to rad, hed bad spling etc, u’d probably skip over it right? Same goes for low quality choppy video. Choose a bitrate that doesn’t distract from you or your message, while still allowing for a speedy load time.


It seems that my life motto is “everything in in moderation”, but it really does seem to apply in all areas. If video and audio is going to help - use it to its full advantage!

Why Pain Free Learning?

Most of us learn life’s lessons through the school of hard knocks. Our days are spent reinventing the wheel and learning all the tough lessons one at a time. We don’t even seem to grasp a concept so rudimentary as ‘love’ until after we’ve experienced heartbreak. Its the same reason most successful business owners have gone through bankruptcy in the past.
It’s with this in mind that I decided to start a blog and newletter dedicated to saving us all time as we make our way through business, web marketing and life.
