Help STOP the Anti-NGO Bill

I watched a video that made me visibly angry and the presenter is a man I have tons of respect for. He is no other than Prof. Chidi Odinkalu, a human rights activist and erstwhile Chairman of the National Human Rights Commission.

The focus of the video is on the Anti-NGO Bill currently on the floor of the National Assembly which seeks to more or less centralise the functions of non-government organisations (NGOs) and how they operate.

Watch the video:

The Centre for Social Justice which created the video has pleaded that we should help share it and create awareness and that is exactly what I have decided to do by this and other activities. I urge you to do the same, if you’re really concerned about the sustainability of any organisations that you care so much about such as your church or an NGO.

I have also taken it a step further by signing this petition on citizengo because it’s all about creating awareness. Here’s the message I got afterwards:

Hi,
I signed a petition to House of Representatives: Federal Republic of Nigeria which says:
“HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES STOP THE NGO REGULATORY BILL”
Will you sign this petition? Click here to sign!

In my opinion, we need a more de-centralized national structure and trying to further centralize this country is unacceptable. Nigeria is simply too large for one central Government and that is clearly evident in the state of our Nation today.

I urge to support this movement by simply sharing, liking and tweeting this video – https://youtu.be/McyBWKXeO28

Video Marketing Advantages: Hints from Official Online Video Usage Report

video marketing advantages

Why Video Marketing? Why Now?

There is one powerful benefit of online marketing that you must never lose focus on. This is that when compared with the offline world, popularity begets more popularity in easier, faster and cheaper manners. Even if you look at what I call popularity here as public acceptance, admiration, fame or reputation, we are equally having the same view on the viral advantage in the digital space.

At this point, if I say that every business owner knows that the best and swiftest ways to gain customers’ acceptance or admiration on the internet today is video marketing, I will be wrong. Making a conclusion like that will be too hasty and so it will be totally wrong because many business owners are found still questioning the relevance of video marketing to their businesses. The small business owners are especially found much more hesitant in realizing the roles of video marketing in driving their business positioning and exposure. I will like us to leave the issue of my being hasty or wrong for now and go to the online video usage official report provided by NielsenWire.com:

video marketing advantages

Noting that the report presented here is only for November, 2011 and only for U.S.A, seeing what this will interpret to this year and at this moment wouldn’t surprise you. It is on record that
millions of people are already using video search engines to find all sorts of services, products, professionals, experts etc. on the internet and that this number is expected to double within a short time.

Now, having shown you the summarized report, may I ask you the following questions?

Do you want, MORE EFFECTIVELY, to:

• showcase your expertise and promote your being recognized as an industry or thought leader?
• raise your own and your business brand and reputation?
• increase traffic to your website for more sales leads, sales or profit?
• choose and use better marketing solutions.
• make positive use of social media and other technology tools, trends and advancement?
• create and develop lasting relationship with your customers?
• demonstrate the reasons why your business is a better choice over your competitors?
• engage your customers or clients with the most interactive and powerful, yet free or cheap marketing tools available?
• get your business information appeared in the second largest search engine in the world as well as in similar ones?
• make your business enjoy more than 45% better chance of ranking above you competitors with today’s video SEO?

May be, you will need to look at the table above again before you answer the questions. With the usage data presented and the list of better opportunities now available for businesses in attaining all the business goals indicated in the above questions and more, did you find any clue pointing to opportunities in video marketing?

If your responses to the listed questions are positive, then you don’t need to contend with whether video marketing can be relevant to your business. I am sure in telling you that video marketing is relevant to you and your business, not even later but now.

If your responses to those questions are positive, this message from Hort Joepen, CEO of Searchmetrics is for you. As he puts it,

With video and images on the rise, the path for SEOs is clear. It makes sense for marketers to increase the volume of video and image content (that means photos too) they’re creating and to optimize it both on their own sites and on third party sites such as YouTube and Flickr.

If your responses to those questions are positive, this message from Ramon Ray of BusinessInsider.com is also for you: Listen to him:

A video email gives your message a face and a voice to communicate more effectively with your clients, telecasting may not be an option for smaller businesses but thanks to the internet, small businesses can use the traditional …methods to promote their businesses with the help of video emailing”.

Now, here is my quick advice…

Whether you want to put up your video marketing using video broadcasting websites or emailing, it is more important that you start now.

Don’t forget, also, that popularity begets more popularity in easier, faster and cheaper manners on the internet. However, there must be a beginning – even for video marketing

…just my hints for you to act on and reap from video marketing.

To your video marketing success.

Use Video Marketing to Increase Traffic to your Website

Video Marketing is becoming more popular as days go by, no wonder youtube is now the 3rd most visited site in the world.

So, as the trend of Internet Marketing becomes more complex, newer strategies will constantly evolve as well as be introduced to keep up with the demands of Internet Marketing. Businesses are competing for the top of the SERPs, using every known method to increase traffic to their websites.

The need to drive more traffic has given way to a new form of internet marketing known as video marketing, which is an additional technique in Search Engine Optimization or the SEO in short.

Video Marketing basically has two aspects;

1. Making a video in order to market it.
2. Marketing an already existing video.

So, how do you go about video marketing?

There are many ways to it.

The first thing that would come to your mind is probably to upload the same video to one’s own site. The result of this is that it would give instant update to your existing customers.

Okay, fine. But what about your potential customers? How are they going to know about your new products or service or how do you go about increasing your site traffic through video marketing?

The simple answer to this is to host your videos on popular video sites like YouTube, Dailymotion, Vimeo, Blip.tv etc. With this, your video would be exposed to a larger audience. But, since there are innumerous videos uploaded daily on these sites, how would yours get noticed? This is where Search Engine Optimization comes into play. You need to use friendly titles and descriptions that would be a catcher to the Search Engines.

So, also one can combine Social Media Marketing with video marketing. Simply go to your Social Media page like Facebook, Twitter etc. and distribute the links of your videos there, so that you can reach a greater audience with your products and services.

You can also apply video email marketing strategies by sending the links of your videos to the subscribers on your list. Make sure your videos are interesting and interactive while promoting your brand, so that it attracts a new audience who might visit your website, this creates the possibility for an increased income.

How soon do you hope to start your video marketing?
