Blogging as a business tool offers numerous advantages to self-publshing your content. With many aspects of blogging your content come many applications. One such application is to add video to your blog post. Video blogs — also known by their shorter, clunkier name, vlogs or vlogging — are blogs that primarily feature short video clips instead of text.. Digital video recorders are now much more available in both cost and accessibility. Devices such as digital cameras and video cameras offer inexpensive entry and offer easy solutions to record video. Many mobile and cellular phones now also offer photos and video recording capabilities as well to record.
Most of these small devices offer a movie mode with the ability to record from a few seconds to a couple of minutes of video. So, let’s look at real world use and application of this to your business… As a business you could record a video interview, photos and video of real estate property, a business tip of the week, products, How-To videos, and the list goes on and on and on… These are all powerful ways to increase your visibility in the marketplace and convey with sight and sound about your products, services, and information. In the past, getting that video to the internet has been challenging for the average person.
However, a new blog tool from Video Egg is changing all that. Their plugin software works right in the web browser and works with many digital devices to bring you video into your blog. Support is currently for the PC but a Macintosh version is in the works. You need to download and install a little piece of Windows software but once you do, it’s entirely browser-based at that point. At present their working with TypePad blogs with support for other blog software solutions in the works. PC World’s Techlog has a write-up about the videoegg blog tool on their website if you want read a review about this product. I can’t wait for WordPress support from this company. Just think, all those small video clips you can shoot on your digital camera or cell phone can now be useful for your business blog. So say it with video on your blog.
