How To Get More Traffic - Short Videos

Last Update: March 05, 2019

* Best tips To Get more traffic - short videos will be an easy and fun way to get the attention from your readers and visit your website *

Hello!

Yesterday I shared here at WA one of my PINs got viral in just one week after I published the blog post on my website and I shared that blog post on Pinterest.

In that blog, I wrote about how good it is to know the work you do on your website is working great and this means my website will get traffic and with it, I'll be making business from it!

Any blogger and online entrepreneurs dream come true!

I thank all of you who stopped to read my blog, gave me a like and wrote a comment.

As I mentioned on the blog, there's another strategy I'm starting to use to bring more traffic to my website recently and it looks like it's working good.

I have not "great" results to show you yet, as I'm just starting to work on it. But I'm sharing this idea and I'm sure if you try it, your website might get the traffic you want to make more business from it.

Before I write the words to tell you what strategy I'm working on. I want to mention how I got this idea.

When you work on the internet to do business, a good idea is to take a look to your competitor once in a while.

There will be big business doing pretty well in each niche. My niche is not different, I'm not the only one and I'm not the big fish in this pond.

So I take a look to some big business, to some successful bloggers in my niche and I pay attention to what they do,

They have tons of followers on Social Media and they get tons of likes and comments, weather they pay for ads or not.

So... what do they do to get so much attention from people interested to buy from them?

Marketing 2019 will bring new ways to create new content for our business.

  • Podcasts is one of the most relevent content any blogger might wont to try.

The reason is simple, more and more people consume content while they go from one place to another.

  • From their homes to their work places.
  • From their work places to their homes
  • Anytime they go from one place to another place.

Many people depend today on their cell phones to take a look to what is going on in the world at this moment.

But also, many people are interested to learn a new skill, a new language or to solve a problem while they go from one place to the other, this is why podcasts will get many followers.

I'm not sure if I'm going to try this.

Short videos.

Another way people are spending their time is to watch videos almost all the time.

Whether they want to learn something new or to solve a problem or just to have some fun.

More and more people spend more time on YouTube than on any other Social Media platform.

The rest of the Social Media platforms owners don't want to be left behind, and this is the reason why now you can download videos to your Facebook account, fans page, business page and share your videos with your followers.

On YouTube you can download a long or short video, it will depend on what your content is about.

My videos last on average from 20 to 50 minutes.

My followers need to stay in one place to follow the video.

Just a few people today have that time to sit down and watch the full video.

One way to get more followers is to make short videos.

Give solutions to your followers in just a few minutes or a few seconds.

What about to watch a video to tell you how to do something in 1, 2, 3 or maybe 5 minutes.

You can watch this video on your lunch break!

You can watch this video on your way to work or on your way back home, if you're not driving, on the bus or on the train.

You can watch the short videos while you're waiting for an appointment or while moms and dads take their kids to an after school class.

My competence is doing this with good results ====> why I shouldn't try it?

Let me show you two examples on how good a short video works on Facebook:

Example 1

7,512 views in one day!

I guess this short video to show how to do some embroidery has been liked and shared a few times.

This website will get a few visits from this short video, it only last 1 minute.

Example 2

140,673 views from October 29, 2018

This video has been liked and viewed and shared a few times!

And this website might have had a few visits from this video.

This type of short videos will work on any niche.

I've seen some videos from people doing woodwork, and repairing cars, and making videos, business and many other ideas.

And most of the short videos are sharing something to do or a better way to do this and that will do great in time.

Your website will not get as many visits as the short video gets views, but I'm sure as you keep uploading more short videos to help your audience to solve a problem or a few tips to do better one thing, your business and your name will get known and your website will get more visits.

What niches can use this strategy?

I think any niche can use it, just think about how to share one tip to do something easier or better on your niche and add a call to action on the video to visit your website to read more or to know more about the topic.

One good example of sharing short videos on Facebook to get more visits on YouTube and on her website is this blogger.

Don't quit, if something is not working as good as you wish it would, try a different strategy until you find the way your client will find you and consume your content.

There are many different ways to create content today for ouw websites, follow the training here at Wealthy Affiliate and keep creating content for your client to be shared on your website.

Share your content on the Social Media where your client is and soon you will get better results for your business.

If you have any question, please write it on a comment or send me a PM, I'll reply to you!

Now it's your turn ====> if you have any good tip that is working for you and for your business, write a blog to share it with the WA community is a way to give back and help others.

Keep at it and have a great day!

Like, comment and share this blog ====> I will thank you for doing that!

Hi Alejandra

This is such a brilliant idea! I wish all video producers will take your advise to heart and produce shorter videos! ;-) (Okay-okay, I know that some topics need longer videos, it was just my impatient personality that was talking!) ;-) LOL!

Thanks for sharing!

Wishing you much success!
