Smart Passive Income #247 to #250 – YouTube for Bloggers & Income Report

Pat advises that all bloggers should be on YouTube. If you follow his advise you should

  • provide quality content
  • provide quality videos (1280×720 … please note that HD does not actually mean that your video is high quality, it’s just it’s size … don’t just upscale your video …)
  • be different … don’t upload the same stuff others do …
  • don’t be afraid … the worst that could happen is that you are getting sued for copyright infringement … so please upload only content you own the rights to do so …
  • add a watermark to your video … not to ensure your copyright, but that people know who’s content they are watching, and maybe want to visit your site/blog …
  • start with an overview … which allows your viewers to stick around for the interesting parts πŸ˜‰ … otherwise they might run screaming away after the first ten seconds …
  • add calls to action … you know the “buy now”s and “click here”s …
  • use screen casts … (don’t forget the copyright part!)
  • add an intro, outro and music … but don’t go overboard …

… and he continues:

  • be concise … 10 minutes is enough …
  • split your video into (multiple) equal parts if it is longer …
  • embed the keywords in your title but make sure it still makes sense …
  • start the description with the URL of your blog
  • use keywords as tags
  • add an additional tag to link all your videos, e.g. using the name of your blog … “passive income” might be to general, but “smart passive income” or “spi” might be nice …

… and he continues further:

  • place the video inside your blog
  • post links to your blog/video to all possible social-media platforms
  • use your video in comments to other popular (of course suitable/similar) videos
  • add annotations to your video, e.g. a call to action …
  • make sure to choose a suitable thumbnail for your video …

… and we reached July 2010 … Pat’s income for June 2010 tumbled down nearly 3.500,- USD … to about 13.000,- USD …

  • Defining your goals and discussing the result in the next meeting makes it more likely you will achieve your goal …

Smart Passive Income #195 to #197 – Moving & Income Report & Virtual Assitants

Pat finished moving and has his own idea room …

We have finally reached March 2010 (only four years of blog left), Pat’s income for February 2010 is stable at 10.000,- USD …

… and as we know Pat likes delegating his work to virtual assistants. However, he does not have a full-time one. In his opinion it takes to much time to teach and oversee a full-time assistant, compared to hiring assistants on project basis. Well, isn’t the point of having a “single” full time assistant to not have to train new ones every time you have a new task? Do YOU have a virtual assistant?
