Video has taken the World Wide Web by storm as evidenced by the massive popularity of You-Tube. For example it is estimated that an average of 3.5 million people visit You-Tube every day. They have 100 million visitors per month and needless to say are the number one video site online and the fourth largest website overall. These figures demonstrate the huge popularity of video on the web which opens up a huge market for any home business owner online to tap into.
There are many other advantages to using video on your home business web site, aside from the tremendous internet marketing opportunity it presents. Using video on your site or Blog adds a personal touch. People get to see you interact and communicate in person and eventually come to feel that they know you. It’s a great relationship building tool between you and your customers. You can add a video profile and tell people a little about your personal history. This helps to establish a feeling of trust which goes a long way toward converting visitors to longtime customers and sometimes friends.
Video can also improve your Home Business’s Search Engine rankings. Due to it’s growing popularity search engines are beginning to look for video on web sites in order to index them in search results. This can also only increase in importance as time goes by.
Also video can only increase your home business opportunity because of its great potential as an Internet marketing tool. You can add videos to your site which you’ve produced that are entertaining or educational. You can then distribute them to video sharing web sites to increase your exposure on the web. As with articles you’ll have your home page link located in your biography box acting as a back link to your business site.
Embedded video on your web page also makes a huge impression on visitors. Because of their entertainment value people are more likely to spend more time on your web site which is any business person’s goal to begin with. Watching videos is comparable to eating peanuts. It seems you can’t watch just one and before you know it you’ve been on a website a lot longer than planned. This can only add to the enjoyment of your potential customers overall web site experience.
Another attraction offered by the video experience is that people would rather watch a video than read an article. It’s more often than not more entertaining and it requires less effort on their part.
Video has arrived on the Internet. It’s no longer the wave of the future and home business owners would be foolish to ignore it because of the huge potential it offers, right now and for the future.

This is my new Blog and having been away from it for a couple of years it’s great to be back because I really enjoy it. Just to tell you something about myself, my wife and I are currently working with Autistic adults in the state of Maine and we love it. Although we’re from Canada, originally from Newfoundland, this is our second stint working in Maine and the two men we are working with this time around are great. We’ve become very attached to these young men and we consider ourselves to be a family. Actually our job title is that of Therapeutic Foster Parents and of course we take it very seriously. One of the main reasons we take it so seriously is that we are advocates for these young men because at times they can’t speak for themselves.
The sad part about our job here in Maine is that we have to leave the country after 18 months. The reason for this being the company who hired us and sponsored us into the US could only get us into the country by way of a Training Visa with the main condition being we have to leave after 18 months. We were here under the same circumstances in 2007 and had to leave the guys we were caring for at that time at the end of 2008.
This of course was very difficult for the three men we were working with and living with at the time and it was also very difficult for us because we became very attached and as I mentioned earlier we became a family. One of the main benefits of coming back is that we get to see the guys we worked with on our first visit and we also get to do what we enjoy which is caring for and helping these young men.
Because of our love for what we do and for the people we work with I will be dedicating a Page on this website to Autism and to the people who live with it on a daily basis. I’m hoping this will help educate people who aren’t familiar with what is fast becoming a global concern and help to raise funds for research.
The other objective of this website is to offer Home Business advice and present opportunities to people who are interested in making a legitimate living by working from home.
I’m hoping to have a great deal of relevant content added soon and I hope people will make it a point to visit often. Thank you for visiting and for taking the time to read this information.
The following two videos should give you some idea of the majestic beauty of Newfoundland:
I’ve added a video below, one of which is actually an advertisement by a local brewery located in St. John’s, Newfoundland which is where I’m from. But it contains some great shots of the area and I like to think portrays what we, as Newfoundlanders, are all about: People who care about people, who work hard and play hard but aren’t afraid to laugh at ourselves. In the following videos you will see many examples of this outlook on life as portrayed by local entertainers performing at what we call “Kitchen Parties”.
These are events where neighbours come together to have a few drinks and entertain one another through song and dance. Please take the time to have a look.
