We are currently be told that we should use video because it keeps everyone’s attention.  I am sure you have heard the phrase, “A picture is worth a thousand words”.

The continuous motion and the anticipation of what is going to happen next keep your viewers’ attention. Even though this becoming very popular, video scribing is still not mainstream.  You will stand out from the crowd.

The ways that video scribing can be used are endless.  You can create social media videos to spread on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. You can create marketing videos.  I actually created a video that welcomes people to my blog, The Online Newbie, and instructs them to claim my free report. You can also create presentation and “how-to” videos. Lastly, you can use these videos as blog posts.  Instead of just creating text blog posts, you can spice it up with videos.
