There are options in marketing your business and one is using Facebook Page as your website. From Facebook, “Facebook can help you reach all the people who matter most to your business.” Recently DW Video has been ask to set up a couple facebook pages for clients that wanted to use their page as their website. When using Facebook Page as your website here is what we did and it is really easy.
First get your domain name. For the Morley Celebration on the Pond we purchased: celebrationonthepond.com and for KJM Productions: kjmproductions.us
Facebook provides a custom web address as well – “When you set up your Page, you can request a web address like “facebook.com/yourgreatcompany,” which makes it easy to find. To maximize the impact, include this address on your business card, website and other marketing materials.”
In both of these cases we used GoDaddy for obtaining our domain name. Went into each account and instread of direction the domain name to point to web host. We created a ‘forward’ to point to the custom URL on facebook.
For example: celebrationonthepond.com points to https://www.facebook.com/MorleyCelebrationOnThePond and kjmproductions.us points to https://www.facebook.com/kjmproductions.
Now these customers can put their personalized website address on their business card.
Now it is important to work the page. Be authentic, Be responsive, Be consistent, Do what works and based on your budget, Make successful posts into successful promotions.
DW Video works with businesses from Caledonia, Grand Rapids, Rockford, Grand Haven, Muskegon, Cedar Springs, Greenville, Big Rapids and all of Michigan. Contact Duane at 231-937-5420 to discuss your your marketing and adverting needs.
Using a personal YouTube Channel to tell and share your stories of Michigan Businesses, Organizations and Non-Profits. According to YouTube “Playlists should be an essential part of your channel strategy. Not only do they increase watch-time, they create another asset that will appear in search results and in Suggested Videos. You can create playlists using your own videos, other videos, or a combination of both.”
Telling and sharing your businesses story needs to take a series of videos, utilizing playlists, proper keywords… it takes a plan. A plan that takes time to produce, embed and track.

Create a YouTube Channel, Playlists and work local video SEO to promote your business.
Video SEO is work in progress. There are many factors that go into ranking. Organic SEO (search engine optimization) is the phrase used to describe processes to obtain a natural placement on organic search engine results pages according to WeboPedia. Meaning not having to pay for ads on Google, Facebook or YouTube. Depending on your keyword and the competition for those keywords, the geographic area you are targeting will depend on how long and IF/When your video ranks.
From the Google search our video was on page two within 24 hours. NOTE: This was from the video section of the search not the main search. More work needs to be done to move that ranking. Remember in the beginning of this article when I mentioned it was work in process. Now the work begins.

Producing Video Testimonials for GRIN… “these are affordable”, states DW Video Owner Duane Weed.
At DW Video we love producing video testimonials and promoting Michigan. We are working with the Grand Rapids Inventors Network promoting the organization and its members. “Developing a product is a marathon” states John a member of the Grand Rapids Inventors Network. John a Michigan inventor (Johnny Ball) believes you have to believe in your product 100 percent and not give up. The networking possibilities are a great benefit of the organization.
Our approach when producing video testimonials is to keep it real. These do not have to be expensive and in the case for how we produced the videos for GRIN, the production is hundreds of dollars… not thousands. Here is the video we produced:

Video Story Telling
Preserve videotape memories by transferring-to DVD.
Preserve videotape memories by transferring to DVD and making copies to share with family and friends.
Preserve videotape memories by transferring to DVD is an ideal way to share those memories with family and friends. What a great birthday, anniversary and Christmas gift. This is one gift you can not find in a store. Heck, it is right there in your closet, under the TV or stored in a box somewhere.
At DW Video we can get up to 2 hours onto a DVD.
Unlike some box stores we can combine multiple tapes onto one DVD. The key is as long as the time does not exceed two hours in length. We know people do not always fill up the videotape. For example, one time I had a lady bring in well over one hundred videotapes – VHS, VHS-C and Mini-DV. There was anywhere from 2 minutes to 4 hours on each tape. NOTE: Four hours meant it was not recorded in the 2-hour mode. These had to be put on two separate DVDs. Remember, only two hours per DVD. Back to the story…. She had every tape numbered in the order she wanted. Each tape was put on as to maximize the two hour DVD. Meaning some tapes had three, four sometimes up to six tapes on one DVD. The first two tapes are at $25.00. The base price for our Video to DVD Transfer. Then $5 per additional tape. The project of over 100 DVD’s made 30-40 DVD’s.
Preserve videotape memories by transferring to DVD with our in-house transfer service. We can transfer the following videotape formats to DVD: Betacam, BetaCamSP, VHS (NTSC, PAL, or SECAM), SVHS, VHS-C, 8mm, Hi-8, Digital8, miniDV, DVCam, 3/4″ (U-Matic). DW Video can also tape your files from your newer video cameras and make DVD’s for you. Do you have home videos, corporate videos, wedding videos, training videos, sports highlights, dance recitals and more.
All video formats transferred to DVD… Even BetacamSP.
