Yep – the weather man got it wrong – suprise right???

See 3 days ago when we left Australia to head for a an elite Internet Marketing Training in New York, the forecast was for fine, hot weather. Well, um we’re here now and it’s raining and about 16 degrees.

Which just proves to me that in business, as in life, no matter how well you ‘plan’ things have a way of turning out the way they are going to ‘turn out’.

I see so many Entrepreneurs ‘planning’ their business to the “nth” degree only to never get around to getting into action and actually making money!

So it’s fitting that the first training at the “10 For 10″ event that we are attending was on the essential elements of an Internet Marketing Business and how to balance learning your craft with producing results.

To give you details of what we are learning would take me hours but the one takeaway I want to give you is this:

Develop the Plan but then Work the Plan!

Don’t let “Perfect” get in the way of “Great”.

I’m off to learn lots more and then IMPLEMENT IMMEDIATELY. Oh and buy an Umbrella ;-)

You know video is the ultimate medium for marketing your business – but it takes time and skills to make a video right? WRONG!

I’m going to show you how to use a free Google tool to source images, edit these into a video, add music, produce your video and upload it to YouTube in 5 minutes or less!

Better yet you don’t need to have a camera, editing software or any video skills.  If you can type your name into a search engine you can use this method.

ALL EXCUSES FOR NOT USING VIDEO MARKETING HAVE JUST BEEN ERASED.

You can simply and quickly create a video for your business like the one Google used for their Superbowl ad and like this one of ours:

The Video Tool I used for this video is “Google Search Stories Video Creator” at: http://www.youtube.com/searchstories

But rather than just sending you to the link, I want to show you HOW to create your Google Search Story video.

I put our video together (above) after watching a tutorial by Video Marketing Wizz (and good friend), Pam Brossman of  “Video Marketing Campus” and www.SocialMediaWoman.com Thanks Pam for letting me share this video:

So watch the videos and then create your very own “Search Story”.  You can have a marketing video “as good as Google’s” minutes from now.

If you are ready to really step up your video marketing, then I highly recommend Pam, and her Husband Steve’s, “Fast Video Results” course – Click here to view more details and subscribe to their website to get notified of their new training videos – they’re all awesome!
