Chapter 8: How to promote your videos.
This chapter is going to go into some pretty advanced stuff. What we’re going to talk about are ways to promote your videos. Promoting your videos, will increase their exposure and should increase your earnings.
The first method involves leaving comments on other people’s blogs. What you generally want to do, is to find a blog that relates to the topic of your video. Then read over the latest post, or if it’s a single post relating to your topic, read that post. At the bottom of each post there’s usually a place to leave a comment. You want to leave a relevant comment on the post and find a way to relate the post to your video. Once you’ve found a way to relate the two, you want to make sure to leave a link to the video, so that others can click through to watch it. Do this for as many blogs as you can find that relate to the video. The more recent the post, the better it will be for having active traffic to follow your links.
Here are a few queries that you can run in Google to find blogs relating to your video. Replace KEYWORD with the topic of your video. If there’s any spaces in the keyword be sure to replaces those with a + sign.

You should be able to find quite a few posts and blogs relating to your topic, using those links above.
Next, we’re going to move on to actually creating a few sites to try and boost the rankings of your video in the search engines. Now, this may be beyond the skills some of you may have. If it is, don’t worry, it’s not required to be able to earn with TVS, but your earnings may not be as high.
What this method involves, is using about 4 different free website provides to build web pages that link to your video(s). You can also include your videos directly on these pages that will also have a link to your TVS account.Here are four places where you can obtain a free webpage. http://www.lycos.com 4. http://www.blogger.com
When you’re registering your web page at these places, try to give it a catch name. Something like extreme-videos or funny-videos. You want it to attract attention to what the site is about.
Once you’ve got the web pages registered you’ll want to place 1 link on each of them. This link will need to link to the next site in the list. So for example, Site 1 will link to Site 2. Site 2 will link to Site 3. Site 3 will link to Site 4. Finally, Site 4 links to Site 1.
Now, with the pages from Googlepages, Geocities or Lycos, you’ll want to place the embed code from your TVS account directly on the web page. Each of those companies has a web based interface for editing the web page. What you’ll need to do is copy the embed code from TVS and paste it in to that interface. This will place the video and a link back to your TVS affiliate page. Now since, these are single pages, unless you want to have one page with tons of videos on them, you will need to create a new page for each video. This may entail creating new accounts at each place as well.
For the Blogger accounts, you can create posts and put the different embed code into each post. This is of course, if your blog is generic enough to fall under a broad category. Something as broad as funny videos would work. That way, each time you find or make a video, you can submit a post to your new blog about the video. You can either include the entire video, or just provide a link to it on TVS. I would definitely mention your affiliate page as well. Now, if you only want one blog page per video, Blogger allows you to have multiple blogs under each account. Just go to your Dashboard and choose Add Blog.
Those are the two basic ways to promote your videos. The first method is to get people to your videos directly. The second method was to get your videos to rank well in the search engines, so as people are searching they may find them.
The last method that I will mention is to also get people to your videos. If you happen to have a MySpace account, you can post a daily entry to your newly posted video. What should happen (if you’re popular or the video is good) is that your friends will see the new post and follow the link. If the video is funny, or interesting they will hopefully pass it on to all of their friends as well.
