Video Blog Website Template Checklist

By Frank Klesitz in Client Training on Dec 23, 2022

We build you a personalized video blog as a client. This is designed to complement your current website. You’ll want to send this to every prospect before meeting them, make sure it shows up when people Google your personal name or company name, and drive all your traffic here (social media posts, emails, etc). The goal is to clearly communicate the problem you solve, showcase your expertise, provide social proof of results, and get the visitor to take action with you. You’ll put a “Video Blog” link on your current website that links to ours. Here’s the checklist we use to make sure you have an effective video blog.
