You can’t have but noticed that every marketer and his dog is pushing the upcoming Video Boss product..(we’ll almost everyone). Given the people who are promoting it they generally don’t get out of bed for less than $1000 commission per sale you can bet that you’ll need to find $2000 to buy the product.

There is no doubt that the videos are compelling but I must take issue with the claims of the videos being responsible for millions of dollars worth of sales…surely it is the guru’s who pushed the products that should claim that honor!

Anyway since the first video there has been a lot of interest about video and the impact it can have on your online business, there are really excellent reasons why you should consider creating Video, one of the most compelling is that they work and they get people to buy the products you are promoting. I am shortly due to interview a marketer who makes a $10,000 a month income from approximately 10 sites and her main weapon is video.

Another great reason for using video is that you can get your message across in under 1 minute where as it can take someone 4 or 5 minutes to read your articles.

One final reason is that they are cheap to make and once you play around a bit you can achieve some very professional results using free products.

This month I am running a Video creation step by step in the WordPress Goldmine forum, so if you would like to know how to create videos why not check out the special offer that currently running.

I thought the best way to show you Why you should use video was to show you. So if you would like to know how to plan and produce simple videos like the one below check out the Video step by step this month in WordPress Goldmine.

Finally to answer the question in the title..No video won’t kill article marketing but it will give you more competition.
