I have always been fascinated by the traffic driving potential of video marketing. Recently, Matt Lloyd, the owner of MOBE, created the 90 day challenge. At first I said to myself, “Self, I don’t have time for this……I don’t need so much structure to be productive…….not many of the cool kids are doing it”. But then I remembered some some words of my own combined with some words stolen and long ago forgotten as to the place of origin. It goes something like this: “When making important life decisions, if your values are sound–when choosing paths and making important choices–guard your perception by forgetting about what anyone else thinks. And just like that, I’m on board with this 90 day challenge stuff.
When I think back on the sales I’ve made in internet marketing, a high concentration of my business has come from video, either directly or synergistically-facilitated by some component of video marketing validation. I work in a hospital in critical care; and with driving time, some days, I’m away from home for 16 hours. Then after factoring in a few showers, food, sleep, and making sure my girlfriend can remember what I look like, it doesn’t always leave much time for working on my internet business. Then the voice of reason in my head says, “Bullshit”! Here’s why: some of the highest performing videos on YouTube are only 3 or 4 minutes. It actually takes longer to SEO and edit the video than it does to record it. There should be enough hours in the week, if not enough hours in the day, to get this done.
And with that, my 90 day challenge has been born. Here it is: the purpose of this post is to state my 90 day goals and post my first video of the challenge. For accountability purposes, I’ll am also posting this in the official MOBE 90 Day Challenge private Facebook group. But, I’m going to tweak this just a bit to accommodate my crazy work hours. I may not be able to record and post a video each day, real time; however, for each week and by the end of each week, there will be a sum total of 7 video posts. The purpose of these videos will be to build up a database of value-based, authoritative-perceived content to send to my list; and, of course, it will also be intended to drive fresh, targeted, organic traffic to my blog and links. I will be posting periodic updates as to how much traffic and sales have come from the daily postings. Constructive criticism and (or) heckling appreciated.
