Posted by on Nov 13, 2009 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Part 1 of a 4 part report: “Seeing the Big Picture: Producing Affiliate Marketing Videos That Sell” I know, I know…. you’ve heard it before, at conferences, in emails from gurus, and from your affiliate marketing colleagues: You MUST use video if you want to be successful selling online these days. So, are you doing it? Are you making videos to increase your conversion rates, sell more product, and brand yourself?! And if you have made the leap, are your low-budget productions really as good as they can be? Need...

Time to Get Back to Blogging

Posted by on Nov 5, 2009 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

  OK, so our new baby was born about 12 weeks ago. She’s doing great (BH!), but life has been absolutely crazy, and so blogging has gone by the wayside….so much so, that I forgot my username and password for signing in to WordPress, and had to figure out how to reset them inside MySQL. How lame is that?!   But, now it’s time to get back to it. New posts coming soon. Stay tuned….   Hobie Goldman That Video Marketing Guy What’s Your Story? I’ll Help You Tell It! www.HobieGoldman.com

My Newest Production!

Posted by on Aug 17, 2009 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

My family is overjoyed to announce that on the exact day we were expecting/hoping for my wife to give birth, she did! We welcomed our fifth child, and first daughter, into the world at 9:10am Israel-time on Sunday (August 16). We had her at home, and everything went awesomely well. Mom and baby are doing great. Dad is so-so…. 😉 So, as Mom is recovering and I’m watching our boys, and trying to run my business some, that doesn’t leave me time for blogging. If you have any informational emergencies, please email...

Finding Stock Music & Images for Use In Your Videos

Posted by on Aug 8, 2009 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

When creating videos, you may wish to include some music, photos, and/or video images without having to create them yourself. If so, you’ve probably been searching the web for them, and wondering how legal it is to use the works of others in your production. First of all, don’t confuse “royalty free” with “free”. You will still need to pay for royalty free music/images, but you will only have to pay once and then be able to use it (within the terms of the agreement) forever. If you are willing to pay for...

Maria Andros’ Seven Steps to Effective Videos

Posted by on Aug 7, 2009 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

(Note: This post is similar to Pt. 4 of “Seeing the Big Picture”, and I definitely referenced Maria’s excellent summary when I wrote it….although, as I mention below, I knew all this already, but had never expressed it so concisely. Even after I wrote the other post, I decided to keep this one on the blog, because there is still non-redundant content here, and what is redundant is so important it can stand repeating. Also, maybe someone will Google on “Maria Andros” and find my blog and it will change his...

Hey Hobie, How Should I Make My Videos?

Posted by on Jul 22, 2009 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

OK, very naturally, as many of you have almost no knowledge about producing a video, I am getting very generic questions all the way from “what camera should I buy” to “how do I upload content”. That is very cool, but… Ever heard of NAB? It’s the yearly National Assoc. of Broadcasters Convention held in Vegas every April. (www.nabshow.com/2009/default.asp) For people in my business, it’s like visiting Disneyland, especially if you are going with a sizable immediate purchasing budget. I mean,...

Don’t Flip Out!

Posted by on Jul 22, 2009 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

I am about to embark on a intro video for my Blog and got hold of a Kodak HD Zi6 (pocket camcorder) which had a huge discount on it…..would have liked the Flip, but this looks pretty cool………my daughter loves it! Looks pretty easy ………just plug into the USB to download. – Sean Flip cameras and their knock-offs are awesome for three big reasons: (1) Very simple to operate, (2) instant USB upload, and (3) they are so small that you can carry them with you all the time. #3 is the most...

Hey Hobie, I am on a widows vista system. I have a JVC HD SD Memory Camera and when i transfer the video it goes into itunes. From Itunes i try to edit the m4v file with windows video maker. But windows video maker can’t recognize the file. How Do I solve this issue. Thanks Brad. My quick answer is: Get a Mac! OK, so maybe I’m not yet the “Video Oracle” I’m branding myself to be, but I think that’s a damn good answer anyway! Seriously though, what you are asking is a very specific technical...

Please Be Specific

Posted by on Jul 20, 2009 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

How do I make videos to post on my blog (or when I get a website of my own up and running) and on YouTube? What are the steps involved and the equipment/software needed”? -Andrew Yours is really the million dollar question; or more accurately, the one million $1 questions. It would be helpful for me, and generate a lot more individual posts for the blog, if the questions you all pose to me could be more pointed and specific. As you saw by my last blog, even the question about “scripting formats” caused me to write...

Stop, Don’t Shoot!! Until…

Regarding how to script, what you have to say? Is there a method that the professionals use? -Richard When you say “scripting”, it can mean a bunch of different things, depending on the type video. If you are just doing what’s called a “talking head” — you, on camera, like a news anchor at a desk — a typical Vlog (video blog) — then you just need a narrative script. If you are producing a video with graphics, supporting video images (called “broll”), titles, voice-over,...
