We have so many stories circling around us that people are concerned about and are tuned into. This provides us as bloggers an immense opportunity to provide content on our blogs that people are looking for and want. YouTube is a great source of free viral content. Here is the technique. Go to the YouTube website. Find the “what’s trending” section. Find a video that is consistent with the niche of your blog. Now use a tool called Jing. It allows you to copy photographs, save them and then upload those photographs on your blog page. You would make a copy of the still video that is trending and would like to share, upload it to your blog page like a picture and then link that image back to the video. Two things that you must do in addition. Write a short summary paragraph about what the video is about and why you think it is important that your viewers see it. Also, when you create the title of the blog, do not use the same title as the person that put up the YouTube video and then boom your done. You just shared content on your blog that was actually trending and then brought it to your blog. Your page speed will not suffer because the video is not actually embedded on your page. Your readers will appreciate the chance to be in the know on trending information.
Create A Bridge To Your Call To Action
What is a bridge? It is the act of taking a story or content and connecting it to a call to action that directs the reader to enjoy a product or service that is monetized. In the above viral video example, let’s say the video is about cooking and recipes but I want to use that activity to make money, I would create a bridge by saying something like “if you enjoy videos about cooking and creating recipes like me and would like to get paid to share them then” So that is an example of a bridge, now I have to create the call to action that explains how they can make money sharing the videos.
Always Have a Call To Action
If your taking time and effort to create a blog then you should always ask for some form of payment in return. It can be something as simple as asking them to share your blog post with their friends. If, however, you are writing a monetized blog. Make sure you are telling the reader how they can help you. Your call to action should be done in three three stages. For example,” if you are tired of trading your precious life for dollars on a day to day basis, only to find yourself old worn out and sick, then click on the link I will provide, put your email in the box provided, and sign up to launch yourself into a journey of freedom“! Again you want to tell people exactly what to do and how to do it in three stages. Why? There is a psychological connection that is created in the three step process that helps the reader feel comfortable about taking that action.
