How To Increase Traffic and Sales with Video Marketing

Affiliate Summit West 2013 opened in Las Vegas today with a jam packed session on how to increase traffic and sales with video marketing by Heather Romiti.

Learn the advantages and the latest video marketing tips and tools for creating, syndicating, ranking, and monetizing your videos. Drive more traffic, more sales, and have fun doing it!

Heather_Romiti_For_Keynote_Bio_Page1Heather Romiti is an Iraq war veteran turned affiliate marketer and wellness coach who created Blendhappy to inspire optimal health. She’s gained a lot of attention and opportunities through her blog and YouTube channel.

Heather started by showing some eye-opening stats about the power of videos. She claimed YouTube has over 8 billion unique visitors per month. That’s more than the entire world’s population!


If you run a blog and you’re not using video, then you are really missing out. Heather showed the entire process she goes through to produce great videos that gets traffic, and more importantly, sales.

One of the resources she recommends is Video SEO for WordPress by Yoast. The plugin does a great job ranking your videos on the major search engines.

Heather runs the Blend Happy channel on YouTube. She has 2,735 subscribers and about 385,000 video views, which I’m sure is more than most of the attendees in the room, except for the guy sitting next to me.

    Hi everyone,

    I must only say YES! Video marketing is getting huge and it will be even more popular.

    People love video and we should get more attention to it.

    Thank you.

  4. WordPress SEO by Yoast plug-in currently has 2,527 reviews and the average rating is close to 5/5 which is incredible. This is why I use it on all of my sites – needless to say, I recommend it as well.
    I do have to start doing videos myself though :S

    I hope your enjoying the summit John! Okay so I clicked on that link to the top 25 videos, but I must admit I have no idea who that guy is. Though this is kind of funny and remind of a post you has just last week of how and who really is an expert.

    Heather seems nice and I am sure she knows her stuff when it comes to videos and youtube. But her stats of 8 billion youtube users is bet much.

    Video is the best but I haven’t gotten in to it yet and YouTube just got like 800 millions visitors per month and it’s really help me understand how important video is.

    YouTube is such a great source to gather new subscribers and get traffic from.

    Tweeted the article out for ya 🙂

    I also agree with that John.

    I’ve seen many users on YouTube gain substantial amount of viewers and subscribers on their channels. However, to gain a great success on YouTube, i think we also need to be really consistent to produce good and useful videos for subscribers.

  9. Heather has succeeded in youtube and other marketing programs that she works with. But damn it – she’s gorgeous to look at, of course, that you buy a blender afterwards seen her movie.

  12. Guy says:

    Video is the future! All the big boys are using video sales pages nowadays!

  13. Abhishek says:

    Thats right video is the future and it can easily increase the sales and traffic for sure. I have tried youtube for my product and got few sales from there. Nice post John. Pretty much appreciated.

  14. Cudjoe says:

    The video was really intriguing.

  15. Paul says:

    While textual search rankings for blogs/sites are saturated for search rankings there is often little competition for some keywords in terms of getting your video to the top of the search results. For example, someone may write a blog post about a certain topic and still be low in the search results, but make a video of the same topic and be within the first few results on google.

  16. Video marketing works but many are afraid of taking the plunge because they believe it’s very difficult. Well, with all the tools available to us these days, it’s NOT that difficult. And for those of us who are afraid of being seen on camera, don’t worry. Those things you are afraid of are actually what makes people connect better with you — That means more sales.
