Video is a huge boost to marketing, we just posted an article today about Old Spice's current video campaign. Video seems to connect with people in a more integrated way.

Yes, video is a great marketing tool! We created a video sitemap (free with videositemappro), submitted it to google and the little video thumbnail appeared next to our search results in google. It's definitely an attention getter in many ways.

PS: Our animation was created on a shoestring budget using a provider from odesk.com. We also created a professional presentation with demo-builder.com. Making videos does not have to be expensive.

I have mentioned the opportunities with videos for a client who is a certified coach. He liked the audio and visual media, so we will probably go with both audio files like Cinch cast and videos on YouTube, Viddler, Vimeo, etc.

Do you have tips on a handy dandy affordable video camera? I have heard about Flip camera and Kodak Z.. Have you read any informative reviews on blogs?

Good points Shawn and todays activity on You Tube and Twitter re Old Spice is an example of how to integrate a campiagn and use videos very well. It will be interesting to see the repeat sales as I am sure the inital uptake will be big.
