Video Mini Sites With Muscle

What Do You Do With A Runaway Hit?

It used to take nothing short of a modern miracle to get any kind of exposure on Google. But now with a few smart tactics it is possible to get real recognition in little time. I am grateful for the multiple video search engines that are out there. The web has been getting more visual for months but lately this phenomenon has exploded.

Here is a sample of why I like web video....

Thanks to web video you can now build a site that will get noticed. I like using web 2.0 video because it has multiple lifeforms. In short, I like web video because it lives on Iphones, Ipods, mobile devices, web sites, blogs and even in ebooks, (if you got the know how....). This can be a pretty powerful thing.

The other reason why I like web video is because it pre-sells my clients. I am usually up for not having to cold call people or do a hard sell in person. Pre-selling allows you to pretty much avoid the whole classic Tom Hopkins approach to selling. I noticed that even my closings are different from days of distant past.

Check out the mini site.

Its a good way to go.

Does Twitter Matter?

I had to admit I really did not understand Twitter when it first came out. Perhaps that is because it was explained to me so poorly. I could not understand why this was such a powerful "Revolution"

When I jumped on and looked around I found various statements such as, "I love baked beans", and "What I would not do for some decent mustard!" and lots of political mumbo jumbo which resembled more like graffiti.

I lost interest until I did some Googling on my name. I was stunned when I found some of my ramblings posted as actual Google listings! Thank goodness I wasn't pontificating on baked beans and political rants. Someone's boredom had become documentable "evidence" in a very short time.

Luckily for me I was writing about some pretty profound things. I was commmenting on things that I found interesting and citing authors, books, happenings and general topics of interest. I wonder how many other people out there actually know that their mind numbing observations will be set in stone...

... for eternity?

Pete Swartz - on the 42 Minute Miracle

"TED CANTU IS ALIVE AND WELL -- and Destroying Competition Coast to Coast"

Despite the rumors of having left the country, (its not true folks) I have popped up alive and well in Michigan of all places -- in a little town called Farmington Hills. I have however, left the Brighton Dan Kennedy GKIC group due to conflict of interests, opinions and flat out results.

After months of creating different online strategies and video power plays I have returned to the Top of Google and in plain site. Pete Swartz, of the Troy Dan Kennedy GKIC, vouches for my expertise and recent online victories....
