Many of the affiliate programs I am a member of, provide videos that we can add to our site and/or content to help promote the products/services. It would be awesome if WA would add some videos we can use, along with the banners and links we have available now.

I must admit, I have found the video series that some of the reputable companies offer is actually hugely captivating, the companies do not (in my opinion) come with the same pedigree as WA but yet I feel the video series that it offers make for a compelling introduction.

I will look at Trish’s link because I am mindful that I may have missed the elephant in the room and find we do offer this intervention... if not I think it would be a worthwhile and profitable exercise for and from Kyle.

Think of it this way. If everyone has the same stock video on their site, what makes your site unique? Why should someone buy through your site as opposed to any of the other hundreds (thousands?) that have the same content. Gives you the same cookie-cutter content as the affiliates of those other merchants have to offer. Those merchants could care less about the quality of your site, about the quality of your content. It doesn't cost them a single penny for you to be their publisher. So what if you have duplicate content - if you get a single sale that's okay with them, or if you never get a sale, that's okay with them too. That strategy is all about using you, not trying to help you make sales.

Fantastic answer to a good question. Thanks Jeannine.

The video would be used in conjunction with our own product reviews so everything else would be unique.

If they get far enough to read your content. Most just say "oh, another site with the same video" and move on.

Wouldn't the video just reinforce the content?

Only if the content is a transcript of the video.
I believe that readers come to your site for information. They want that information to be new, something they haven't seen or read or understood before. They will make the decision about your content in about a heartbeat. If they see the same thing they've seen other places, they're gone.

I understand why people want premade videos. But that's not as good as an idea as one would think. It is best to make your own video this way it is unique to you and your personal experience.

A video done by Kyle or Carson in some ways is a self-serving video and believe it or not does not have as much of an impact on a visitor to your site as a video done by you.

A great video you can make would be a screen capture video giving your visitors a tour of wealthy affiliate. And at the same time telling you story and experience with wealthy affiliate.

There are free tools you can use for screen capture as well as paid options. A good free online program you can use is Screen-o-Matic. https://screencast-o-matic.com/ They also have a paid service.

Interesting you recommend screenomatic.. do you use it? I’m at that phase in SAC that we are doing videos and Kyle suggested a bunch of platforms to use. I’m in a trial period with one.. wasn’t sure which was better, but the one you suggest here was on the list.

Not sure what's on Kyles list but you can be sure he would not recommend anything that was not going to help you out.

I use a program called Camtasia which is a full blown editing program.

However I have used Screen-o-matic to see how well it functioned and it was great.

Just know that the free version will have a screen-o-matic watermark in your video.

I use Screencast-o-matic and it's fine. I started free and once I saw how user friendly it is, I upgraded. It's $19.80 for a full year's subscription. Price chart is here:

Thanks Jude, that is cheap. I see you are coming up on a 10 year anniversary here at WA. It must be a scam I guess. lol
