Step by step to create a video clip as below: (Note: I assume you have found the right products to sell online. For a beginner, I do not encourage you to use this method if your niches relate to Internet Marketing and Business/Investment categories because they are too competitive and only pro marketer can do well).

Step 1: Grab the right keywords for video titles and tags.

To gather the good keywords for your video campaign, you can use Google Autocomplete and Google Trends. These tools are good enough to form high value titles, tags and content description. (Note: If you create a video with high keyword competition, you can use Jaaxy to find the perfect combinations of keywords).


So let’s we go through to our example, let’s say you choose ‘job interviews’ as your niche, just type your main keyword in Google search and you can see the most busily searched keywords as below:
Google Autocomplete Search

Then, you scroll down the Google search page and you will get a group of related keywords as a figure below:
job interview secrets keywords

The other good keyword search source you can use is Google Trends. Just type your keywords and then, scroll down the page. Then, you will see the related searches keywords that you can use for your video campaign as below:

Then, copy and paste all the keywords on Word/Notepad and choose the best and relevant keywords for your future campaign. Now, you can prepare your list of keywords and start creating titles for your video. In addition, you can combine some keywords to create relevant titles. (Note: Later you must rename your created video file with the keyword title)
   
Steps 2: Writing description box contents.

To achieve high video ranking on video sites, you should consider writing a long content in a description box. In addition, video site like Youtube can recognize quality content to rank the videos. Regarding on the contents, you can write about the product info, benefits and etc., followed by a list of your keywords. Besides, if you provide valuable content to your viewer, your chance to make a sale is high. (Note: To attract your viewer attention, you can also introduce a problem and solution to the problem, which is the product you are promoting. In addition, don’t forget to put your site link in description box).

Step 3: Making 2 minutes promo video.

Before you can start to create a promo video for any product, you need to prepare materials like images, texts and audio. If you are promoting the other merchants’ products, you can get the images and texts from their sales page site and then, edit them before you put them in video slideshows. (Note: Don’t use any copyrighted images or logos to avoid video content removed or maybe your account will be deleted by video sites especially Youtube site).

In addition, you can get free audio tracks from Youtube or you can also download them from the other sites. Keep in your mind, use relevant audio in your video slideshows and avoid annoying soundtracks. Now, you have all materials that you need for your video campaign, you can use Windows Movie Maker (WMM) to add your selected materials in a video clip and make simple animations for each frame. (Note: Don’t forget to inform to your viewer to visit your site at the beginning of the slideshow).

Besides, you can also make two or more video clips with different keyword titles name to increase the number of videos to your channel. But you must remember you will need to change video contents either you add new or remove the images/info and change the audio soundtrack to avoid penalizing by video sites. (Tips: If you want to get a clear picture of how video content is structured, you can refer to top videos ranking on Youtube and learn from them). Then, upload your videos to video sites.

Step 4: Promote your videos.

To achieve good videos ranking, you can use Ping Farm (free ping tool service) to ping your new videos URLs and quickly notify the search engines. In addition, you can also promote your targeted video promotion on Facebook, Twitter and etc. (Tips: Don’t use your personal Twitter/FB account to promote your products, you need to create a new account and get your niche group) 

Posting with Landing Page Link as Signatures in Forum

Posting to forum or discussion board is a highly recommended way that you can do to start promoting your site to the niche groups. To find the forum about your niche is very easy, go to Google search and then, type ‘your niche + forum’. That’s all. But, please make sure to check the forum terms, rules and guidelines before you join or make a post. In addition, you should know what is allowed and what is not to avoid deleting your account by forum owner.

Once you sign up to forums, go to your profile and edit your signatures. Remember, your signatures will be shown within forum post once you have reached the minimum number of posts you must make (Note: Read forum rules or guidelines in advance). For example, v7n allows you to put your signatures within your posts once you make a minimum of 50 posts.

The best thing about discussion board or forum is that folks are searching for the answer to their problems. So, this is your chance to offer something that can help forum members to solve the issues. In addition, you need to deliver valuable content to them and become a contributor. Besides, you can also make a new thread and share your knowledge with the other members so people will recognize you. Below is a list of forums that allow you to leave your signatures in your post:

v7n, Abestweb.com, Affiliate-talk.com, filesharingtalk.com, warriorforum

Below are examples of signature texts that you can use to attract members to click your site links, like these:




Other Useful Method:

Classified Ads or Free Ads Services (Not the best but still useful method)

The other useful way to drive free traffic to your site is submitting an ad to online classified ad sites (Note: You only get some traffic to your site). You can use your target keywords within the ad and get it ranked in search engine easily. In addition, you should focus on helping people to solve their problems and providing them the best solution. Here is a structure of the ad that you can apply when creating the ad on the classified ad:

Headline: Of course, you need to use a powerful headline to grab people attention. If you never attract folks’ attention to begin with, you will fail to make money online and no one will care about your ad.

Building interest: You can introduce a problem and solution to the problem, followed by your product description (product review).

Benefits: Provide a list of product benefits and the expected outcome.

Call to action: Asking people to take action. For example, ‘Click Here to Learn the Secrets Making Thousands of Dollars per Month’ (put your landing page link).

Here is a list of classified ad sites that you can use to promote your pages (Note: Be sure you choose the right categories before making and submitting the ad. In addition, be sure you read their terms and condition before creating an account. Some sites they might have changed their policies and you should note about this):
