How to Edit Your Videos Using Windows Movie Maker!
Windows Movie Maker (WMM) is the editing software that I
use to edit all of my videos. Windows movie maker is free
and comes preinstalled on all windows operating systems.
If you are currently using a windows operating system you
can locate Windows Movie Maker by going to ‘Start,’ ‘All
Programs,’ ‘Accessories,’ and then ‘Windows Movie Maker.’
WMM is not a particularly advanced piece of software and
it does not allow for very sophisticated special effects.
However, for purposes of video marketing, WMM has all of
the functionality you need and is also very, very easy to
learn and use.
Among other things, you can use WMM to add music,
transitions, and credits to your videos.
Once you have completed your video, the only thing you
really need to add to your videos are credits at the
beginning and end of your video which is where you will
place your URL.
To add credits to your video using WMM open up WMM and
then select the .wmv version of your video.
Then click on “Make Titles or Credits” in the left hand
column under “Edit Movie.” Select “Title at the Beginning”
and later “credits at the end.”
Type in a quick message as well as your URL into the space
provided, then change the text and font to the color
combination of your choice.
Next select “change title animation” and then select the
animation that best fits your video. Repeat this process
for the end credits.
Once your video is added to WMM your video will be
displayed in several frames.
To add these frames to the storyboard simply click on
“edit” and “select all” and then right click and select
“copy.” Then right click the first frame of the storyboard
and select “paste.”
The video frames will then appear in chronological order
in your timeline.
After you have added your beginning and end credits to
your video as well as pulled the different frames into the
storyboard, you can then shorten the length of your credits.
I do this because I think the standard credit length is
just a bit longer than what most viewers want to see.
To shorten the length of the credits click on “show
timeline” in the space above the storyboard and then select
the one of the credits. A line should appear in the frame
you want to edit.
By moving this line to the left you can then shorten the
frame length. The further you move the line to the left the
shorter the frame will be. I usually shorten the credits to
2 seconds for the opening credits and 3 seconds for the end
After you have finished editing your movie, click on
“file” and then “save project.” This will save the project
in WMM format so you can come back later and edit the file
To save the file as an actual movie file select “file” and
then “save movie file.” This option will save the file in
the original .wmv format, which is the version you will be
uploading to the different video sites.

5-Step Plan – Finding a Profitable Niche!
In the last lesson we touched on the 3 ideal things you
need to look for in a profitable niche market:
2. High demand
Today we’re going to disucss these in detail.
Niche markets with longevity are what I like to refer to
as Evergreen. In other words, they’re somewhat timeless.
They’re not just a passing fad that will be gone in six
months or a year. They have longevity and demand will be
around for years to come. You don’t want to focus on niches
that are short-term.
For example, promoting a product such as PlayStation 3
(PS3) has short-term demand. Once new technology is
released this product becomes virtually obsolete and you’re
customer base quickly diminishes.
However, focusing on the photography niche could be very
People in this niche are passionate about their hobby and
are usually long-term enthusiasts that will be involved in
this market for a long time. So you will always have a
highly targeted customer base.
This means that once you’ve established yourself in a
particular Evergreen market like this, you can continue
profiting from them for many years to come.
2. High Demand:
Secondly you need to ensure your niche market has a high
demand. It needs to be “hot” with a ready supply of people
who are searching for products or services relating to your
You can determine the demand of your niche by performing
some simple online market research that can be done for
Go to www.google.com and search for the main keywords
relating to the market you are researching.
Here you are looking for two things. The number of search
results and how many Google Adwords advertisements are in
the far right hand column.
The list of Google Adwords ads represents the advertisers
who are paying to advertise the keyword you searched on.
Most are advertising an affiliate product or their own
website that sells a product related to your keyword
If there is a list of advertisers regularly filling the
page, then chances are this is a popular niche. Advertisers
won’t continue to spend money unless they were getting a
You can confirm high demand by checking the number of
keyword searches for the main keyword phrase for your niche
market to ensure there is enough demand.
Simply go to the Google Keyword tool at
insert your main keyword phrase and see how many searches
are performed each month for various keywords in this niche.
For example, if you were researching the “crocket” niche,
you would search for the term “crochet” (which by the great
longevity) and you will find that there is an average of
368,000 searches per month for the term “crochet patterns”.
This tells us that there is a huge demand in this niche
and it would definitely be advisable to some further
research to determine if was worth targeting this niche.
But there is one more step you need to do before you start
promoting to this niche market… Profitability!
Unfortunately we’re run out of space to discuss this
today, so in the next lesson we will discuss the key to
determining if your niche is profitable before taking it
to Step #2 of the plan.

Traffic Basics – How to Find the Best Keywords!
In the last lesson we talked about the importance of
keyword density. Today we’re going to talk about keyword
research and tools that you can use to find the best
keywords and phrases.
When you are doing your keyword research is the good rule
of thumb to choose keywords that are frequently searched
for and are in high demand, but not being used by to many
other websites and competitors.
Keyword research can be broken down into a three step
The first step is the discovery phase. In this step you
want to focus on identifying as many keywords or phrases as
Initially you need to sit down and make a list of keywords
or keyword phrases that describe the topic of your website.
You can do this by jotting down descriptive words that
come to mind, and by using your dictionary. At this point
include every word or phrase that you can think of.
To help make this job much easier there are several
keyword tools that are available to help you generate a
keyword list. Some of these tools are free, like
GoodKeywords.com and Google’s Adwords Tool while others are
With these tools you will be able to generate hundreds of
keyword phrases quickly and easily.
I prefer the Google Keyword Tool. This is a free tool that
generates potential keywords, as well as allowing you to
analyse statistics, including search performance, seasonal
You can check it out at…
This has some very useful features that include:
- Sorting the results of your desired keyword search by
popularity, past performance history within the AdWords
system, cost, and predicted ad position.
- Easy keyword manipulation where you can select a few
keywords here and there or add them all at once.
- Searches for keywords present even in any webpage URL
specified by your search. It can also expand your keyword
search even further to include those pages that are linked
to or from the original URL page.
- More keyword results are generated based on regularly
updated usage statistics database. This helps you to get
new keywords or phrases.
It also provides you with tips on how to use the tool to
get the best results so that you can easily narrow down
your final selection of keyword phases.
Of course there are many more options available besides
the Google Keyword Tool. Below is a quick list of some that
you can try out.

Ultimately, which tool you decide to use is completely up
to you. I suggest you test a few before you make your final
decision to find one that works best for you.
That’s all for today, but make sure you look for your next
lesson where we will be talking about submitting your
website to the search engines.
