As a veteran journalist and TV and radio broadcaster, Beverly Mahone can appreciate the power of marketing through video and audio.

More and more people are discovering that they no longer have to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars for a 30 or 60 second commercial. The growing popularity of social media now allows each of us to create our own advertising campaigns for the price of a video camera, plug-in headsets for your computer, and some creative imagination.

Video and audio marketing are great ways to get your name out there.

Here are a few video tips from Bev Mahone’s chapter.

1. Provide Quality Content. Offer resources or something else of value they can take away by watching your video.

2. Grab Attention With Your Videos. The goal is to attract your viewer’s attention, encourage them to research further on your site, and ultimately become a customer.

3. Take Advantage of All Your Social Options. Be a social butterfly. Connect with others on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Ryze, etc.

4. Show Your Personality. There’s nothing worse than watching someone who sounds like they’re uninterested in what they’re talking about.

Bev Mahone’s chapter in Social Media for Business also includes more detail and podcast tips.

There’s an old saying, “practice makes perfect.” The more you do it and work at it, the better you become. And always remember to enjoy what you do.
