Video is the future of social media online. Video online is a central storage area and delivery system for videos to be distributed, on demand, to any computer connected to the Internet, by means of up to date streaming technology and downloads.
The amount of video online is skyrocketing, whether it’s “Bloopers” episodes or movie trailers and the key to monetizing video online is matching the consumer with what they’d be willing to buy right now.
The major broadcast networks are rushing to put video online because of user demand. In fact, Witzig said that watching video online is now the fastest growing form of consumer entertainment. The vast amount of video online is user generated and the most exciting part is what is yet to come; interactive video.
The user experience of watching video online is actually very different than reading a news article on a web page and interactivity would bring it to a whole new level. Watching television is a very passive pass time, while watching video online is more engaging, and online video advertising could be made much more engaging by adding the interactive element to the mix.
To say that video online is a massive market opportunity would be an understatement and getting your video advertisement online is safe, quick, and easy. It is inexpensive when compared to TV broadcasting and a video demonstration could clarify the advantages of your product.
The amazing thing about the explosion of video online is the huge numbers of people who are experimenting with the medium which only adds to the market potential for advertisers.
Video search engines and directories, online video publishing and sharing sites, web based video editing and post production services are springing up all over, demonstrating that the power of video is finally breaking away from the confines of television.
According to the Society for New Communications Research (SNCR), “Blogs and online video are the most popular social media tools, 78 percent and 63 percent of marketers have used them, respectively, followed by social networks 56 percent and podcasts 49 percent. Respondents show an overall high satisfaction level with social media tools. All rank three or higher on a scale of 1-5, but no one tool is a clear number one performer.”
Another advantage of Video online is that it doesn’t disappear when the ad campaign is over or your budget runs out. Video publishers, blogs, news sites, video search engines and sharing sites all get free quality video content around which to build and mold their own value added suggestions.
Successful companies have realized how valuable video can be to their marketing efforts. But the greatest potential value their videos have is completely wasted when these same companies publish videos that are embedded in their website, not allowing access to others for redistribution.
A great video about a great idea would provide fantastic content for other publishers to take and syndicate elsewhere. This could only lead to more exposure and more sales for the companies involved.
Video has finally come of age on the internet, and whether you simply want to share some home movies, shoot for your three minutes of video fame, or get your advertisement seen by the world, some truly inventive and adventurous ways exist to make it happen. Video is growing; it’s here to stay and is the future of social media online.

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.
