Creating a vlog probably sounds a little scary. But if you want to take your blog to the next level it might be the time to start thinking about incorporating video into your blog posts. Using video on your blog gives you an opportunity to create a great connection with your readers and makes you more valuable to brands! Take some time to get comfortable in front of the camera before posting to your blog and before you know it, you’ll be a pro!

Incorporating Video Into Your Blog

I’ve written about vlogging and using video on your blog a lot, but I rarely discuss why you should incorporate video into your blog.

But why?

    Great post, I like the video examples. Video marketing has grown massively. Visual content is so important now. Would love to hear what programs everyone is using to record.

    Hey there, Nice blog post! I agree that vlogging is great practice for the places you want to go with video! That’s exactly what my goal is as well.

    Til then, I’m enjoying helping people get healthy in simple, easy ways and sometimes it’s just easier to explain things in a video.

    For me, making the video is so much more labor intensive than writing a post, but the outcome is so much nicer. Regarding YouTube, I’ve got completely different followers on my blog and on YouTube. And there are completely people on my newsletter. Not many of them have crossed over and I think it’s because different people like to get their info through different means.

  • Mamapotamus says:

    I am only about a month in to using videos on my blog. I have seen a small increase in traffic, but nothing significant. I’m not getting any extra traffic from YouTube yet, but I’m hoping it will come.

  • I did a vlog about a month ago and I loved it! Once I got past the initial awkwardness I was in love w/ the process. I did another one about a week later and plan to do another one next week. So much fun.

  • I don’t use video on my blog as often as I should, I admit I find it too time consuming, but I would like to find ways to get around to posting videos more. Thanks for this post!

  • Happy SITS Day! Wish you the best with your blog. Will swing by to pay visit now.
