A couple of days ago, I wrote a post on free video services. It occurred to me that this would be a great communication tool for those of you who will be attending trade shows and/or conferences. My video is an example of the type of video you can share with the attendees. I chose music as my audio, but you create a recording explaining your services and/or products as the audio. It has to be in MP3 format. Once you create the video over at One True Media, you can publish it to YouTube. Once you have published it to YouTube, you can create a playlist at YouTube with the same video; so, it appears it is on a loop. This would be an excellent idea for a trade show booth. Your video is repeatedly playing describing and displaying your services.
As I mentioned in my previous post, although it is easy to create your videos, it is very time consuming. If you don’t have time to create the videos, outsource the task to your Virtual Assistant.

I finished my first virtual e-book tour on Tuesday, and I met some interesting readers along the way. I virtually traveled from the West Coast to the East Coast, spending the day at various bookstores (blogs) promoting my new e-book, “Online Marketing Tools for Today’s Small Business.” I also held interview sessions with the blog owners. My plans are to do another virtual e-book tour early next year. So, be on the lookout for that.
On Wednesday, it was my turn to host a virtual book tour stop for Karen M. Pina, author of “Is it the job, the boss, you . . . or are you an entrepreneur? Find your career stressors and the success that God intends.” Karen is also a coach for Christian leaders and entrepreneurs.
With the cost of airfare and gas, traveling from blog to blog is more practical. It saves time, money, and you reach a larger audience. If you don’t have time to coordinate a virtual book tour, outsource this task to your Virtual Assistant. Hope to see you on my next tour!
As usual, when I come across information, which I feel may be valuable for you as small business owners, I share it with you. A business associate of mine, Denice Games, is CEOSpace Club President for San Diego. She states, “CEOSpace is an organization of investors, inventors, and a diverse group of business owners who get together five times a year to help each other become successful. Members and instructors make up some of the top trainers and corporate mentors in the world. Business education is provided along with valuable capital language instruction to allow business owners to raise necessary capital for their businesses.
