I posted that video to my Facebook page, and then boosted it for the last week.[HASHTAG]#AndyTalks[/HASHTAG] 042 - 3 Maths Exam Tips
I've dropped this video into this thread. It took a bit of editing to get down to 2:21 (from about 2:50 I think).
I get unstuck/a fire under my arse when I have people to help.
In this case, I'm helping a niece and a couple of local lads to prepare for their Maths exams that start in 10 days time.
Expect more Maths videos to hit that thread in the next few days.
Tomorrow morning I'll be posting that video to Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter. I'll be doing the same with forthcoming ones.
If it helps someone pass their exams, then it's been well worth it.
And of course, you don't learn until you launch. So this is going to help me learn more about video creation and marketing.
Holy wow, are those standard metrics for facebook videos? That is an insane amount of views and reach for such a low budget (12 euro a day or overall?)I posted that video to my Facebook page, and then boosted it for the last week.
Here's the results. If it's helped one person pass their Maths exams, then it's a great ROI.
€12 total spend. I've no idea what standard results are as I don't do much Facebook advertising. I believe someone watching 3 secs of your video counts as a view.Holy wow, are those standard metrics for facebook videos?

Don't get disheartened if much of the audience didn't pick up on what you were dropping (June 13th post). I look at it much the same way I do fastlane. Most people won't get it. Most people who do get it, won't care or won't take action. That's how we can be the 1% of the 1%.
A tradesman in Dublin watched this video and emailed me.[UPDATE]
Just finished an hour of waffling about AdWords.
I do these calls all the time, and finally I'll have one recorded.
It was so much fun too.
You can find a link to it here:
Larry, who was the host, should have the recording later and I'll drop a more permanent link in here when it's done.
Blab is so easy to use, and a great little platform. I watched a great one this morning about branding. There's some interesting conversations going on.
Notes on the video:
Doh... I have a lovely mic sat on the desk, but used my wireless headphones because I thought I might stand up and use the flip chart. I didn't in the end, so could have had better sound quality. I'll do that next time.
I'm definitely talking slower and more clearly now-a-days. I think all the time on Snapchat has been helping.
And that's how it's done. You give value, prospect recognizes it and calls you for help. Andy I'm crafting my business from your examples here.A tradesman in Dublin watched this video and emailed me.
After a quick chat he's signed up this month to rent an AdWords campaign and landing page off me...
Great recommendation Andy. I used Rev to transcribe a customers video and will use the transcription in its Youtube description.Damit... I should be in bed.
Anyway, someone mentioned this site to get videos transcribed. I didn't realise they also did the captions/subtitles. Very interesting...
EDIT: I've just paid €8.15 via Paypal to get the latest video (028) transcribed. It should be a 24 hour turnaround. I'll update this thread when I get the transcription.
Thanks for your feedback and suggestions @devineUse Sony Vegas, it's way better than Camtasia and saves a lot of effort.
Recording with Audacity is better and tell me if you still haven't managed to make your mic work with skype.
I think you can get your talks and your business on next level by:
- Purchasing GoPro for SnapChat and for general video recordings (GoPro is good enough).
- Purchasing a good audio-interface and a better microphone, so you can come up with great quality recordings.
What do you think about that?
AndyTalks with The-J (93mins!)
Last night I recorded a Skype call with fellow insider @The-J.
Five minutes before the call I scrambled around trying to work out how to record it. I found www.pamela.biz which worked well (I signed up for the 30 day trial and I think it's only €25 anyway).
We dropped the call on the inside HERE (EDIT: We agreed to move it to the outside.)
Listening back to it, The-J sounds much better with his inbuilt laptop mic than I do with my wireless headset. I'm now in the market for a better headset that has a good quality mic. (I couldn't get my Blue Yeti working with Skype prior to the call, and I prefer a headset where I am not stuck in one position talking into it.)
I used Audacity to trim the chatting before and after the call. Even so, it was 93 minutes. Ha - we can both talk!
I hadn't really thought of just recording audio, but I'll consider it now. I can do it easily on the go with my iPhone, AND it's much easier to edit. Snapchat video isn't importing into Camtasia again - which means I can't edit the videos.
Maybe myself and The-J will do some more shorter audios on specific topics. Maybe we'll keep them all on the inside, or maybe we'll drop them on the outside in a thread. Maybe we'll even do a podcast as we think very similarly and what we do is similar, and we're both mostly freelancers moving towards being entrepreneurs/business owners.
I take the search volumes and estimated CPCs from the Google Keyword Planner with a large pinch of salt.What's up Andy...
Since your an adwords guy, I figured you might know the answer to this. I was doing some keyword research yesterday and I'm wondering why google KWP isn't showing local search volume anymore?
Example: Search volume 1k-10k per month or 10K-100K per month.
Have you noticed this?
Haha.Transcription of your one-on-one with Blaise?
I'll genuinely do it for $0:
I understand that it's not, I just want that conversation
