Why I Don't Do Video Marketing

[box type=”info”]

This is the 3rd post in a series of seventeen posts I’m doing following Kim Roach’s list post of “17 Copy-And-Paste Blog Post Templates“. You can see all the posts from this series on my blogging challenges page.


You can find me all over the Internet, I like to be everywhere my readers and potential readers are. That includes forums, question and answer websites, blogs (through comments and guest posts), contests, social media, social bookmarking and quite a few other places.

The one place I’m not and really don’t plan on going is into video marketing.

Don’t get me wrong, I can see how great video marketing is, heck, I can even say that I don’t doubt it’s probably one of the most converting means of marketing in the world, but I still won’t do it. Even if there are easy ways to do marketing via video.

The main reason why I don’t do video marketing, is that is isn’t for me, and nothing is for everyone!

I don’t like doing things that I don’t appreciate myself. Every project I have started that was for myself and not for a client, has been done with tools I enjoy using and has been about things I love. I really believe that if you want to be successful it’s not just about making money, but about making it in a manner that you can enjoy.

I love the Internet and marketing on it.

I read about 10-20 posts a day about the subject, but if you ask me the last time I’ve watched a video on Internet marketing, I can honestly tell you I don’t remember, it must have been over a year ago.

If I don’t watch other people’s Internet marketing videos, how can I make my own and expect others to watch it. I don’t like making my own videos, and I’m not just talking about me being in them, I mean making videos at all. It really isn’t something that interests me to do, so I don’t do, afterall my end goal is to make a living online doing things I love, not just doing things because they work.

Some will argue that I’m missing out on getting easy traffic through video marketing, and I won’t argue against that because I believe it’s absolutely true, and I’ve outsourced video marketing for some of my clients, because their needs come before mine, but I will never do it on my own, and I’m not sure I would even outsource it for my own projects, but it could happen down the line.

I have so many untapped ways of creating traffic for my projects, I rather concentrate on those, for now anyways.

The only reason I wrote a post like this, is because it was the third post template on the list, and I have to say, as I wrote and researched it, I started saying to myself: “maybe I should do video marketing by outsourcing the parts I don’t like, like I do for my clients”.

What do you think?

Do you do video marketing?

What do you like and not like about it?
