Big thanks to Gideon from Get Your Video Online for letting me know about these two handy websites.
We all know how good video is for online marketing, in particular YouTube, but something that’s lacking is a way to spread video that is actually clickable. When I say clickable – I mean viewers can click the video and be taken to a page you designate, rather than the YouTube page or similar video sharing site. A simple text prompt to help stimulate the click would also be nice.
Well thanks to LinkedTube.com you can do this. What’s really great about the service is how easy it is to use. Just fill out a few variables, click “Get Code” and stick the video anywhere you like. There’s also some simple but helpful customization options.
If you want something a little more feature rich, try Overlay.tv, which lets you overlay more content over your videos, including product placement, text bubbles and clickable links, and it works on other sharing sites beyond YouTube too.
The only problem with both these services is you can’t impact the place where your videos usually get the most attention – at YouTube itself. However if your video marketing includes embedding videos all over the Internet, like in your social networking profile, on your blog or let’s say you use video as an affiliate marketing tool, these sites provide a handy service.
Find a great product you love and then find a great review of it in YouTube then use the LinkedTube.com tool to embed your affiliate link code as a clickable video post to your blog. That’s a nice way to make use of video content from YouTube for affiliate promotions. Just be sure to check you are not violating any YouTube or affiliate network’s terms of service.
