Streaming video software is perfect to get a video online on your site or blog with just a few minutes of work. And if you want to interact with your readers, you should use a video to ask them a few questions.
It does not matter if you have a personal home page or a business page – it's always important to get traffic to it. There's not much fun in spending time to create and keep a site with no visitors. It's like showing movies in a deserted cinema.
You can find all sorts of tips about how to get traffic to your site or blog. One of the more effective ways is getting the visitor involved.
This can be obtained by different means. If you have a blog, you can ask for a comment. Or you can simply ask a question.
A short question often just requires a short answer, like: 'Do you celebrate Christmas?' People can answer either 'yes' or 'no', but there's no really involvement here.
If you ask a longer question, you'll run into a new problem. People will have to read a longer piece of text, and maybe your question demands a lot of explanations, before it can be answered. In this case, it's even worse, because you'll have to write a lot, and the visitor will have to do a lot of reading. He'll probably be totally exhausted from all that, before he even gets to the point, where he can answer the question. And then he puts it off to the next day.
As we all know, this 'tomorrow' never comes.
What you want to do, if you really want to involve your visitors, is to ask them questions in a video.
Show them your face. Let them listen to your voice. It all adds up, and will make your audience feel like they know you better, and with knowledge comes trust.
Get yourself a Flip cam, or use the web cam, to record yourself asking a question to your visitors. Tell them exactly how they can answer this question. Maybe they have to click on your comment box. Or maybe they have to send it to you in an email. No matter what the procedure is, you should explain it clearly in the video.
All you need now is to use a streaming video software to add the video to your home site or blog.
