Businesses large and small can benefit from video blogging. A quality Video Blog (vlog or vblog) that’s regularly updated will increase any business’s web presence and draw in potential customers. A video blog or video log, is a form of web television. Video Blog entries often combine embedded video (or a video link) with supporting text, images, and other metadata. Entries can be recorded in one take or cut into multiple parts.
Video Blogging saw a strong increase in popularity beginning in 2005. The Yahoo! Video blogging Group saw its membership increase dramatically in 2005. The most popular video sharing site to date is YouTube. YouTube was founded in February 2005. By July 2006, it had become the 5th most popular web destination; with 100 million videos viewed daily and 65,000 new uploads per day.
Video blogs take advantage of web syndication to allow for the distribution of video over the Internet using either the RSS or Atom syndication formats, for automatic aggregation and playback on mobile devices and desktop computers.
Many open source content management systems have enabled the inclusion of video content, allowing bloggers to host and administer their own video blogging sites. In addition, the convergence of mobile phones with digital cameras allows publishing of video content to the Web almost as it is recorded. Radio and television stations may use video blogging as a way to help interact more with listeners and viewers.
The great thing about Video Blogging is that it’s easy, free and can be about any topic you can think of. You can blog about a new product, a how-to guide, news about upcoming services, or information about your company.
Video Blogging helps businesses gain exposure by providing information about their products or services to consumers who are interested.
