Google Loves Online Video

Google loves video. Online Video. Video that attracts people, grabs their attention, engages with them. Ahhhh, the power of online video! And not just video on YouTube!
No doubt about it. Google has the BIG TIME hots for video and always ranks it above text alone, text with pics, or pics by themselves. Google plays favorites with video. That’s because back in ’06 Google bought YouTube to the tune of $1.65 billion dollars. OF COURSE they’re going to PROMOTE VIDEO! They want you to visit YouTube to watch the clips that are there because they make money when you do.

Video marketing will help you establish a POWERFUL online identity because people get to watch you as you speak, and fall in love with your quirks and mannerisms. All of the things your friends find annoying about you will just be seen as endearing when viewed in 3 minute snippets of video!
Video marketing helps you Get Found online. Video marketing helps you Engage with those people who do find you online. Video marketing can be used to build a profitable, automated follow-up system to keep in touch with all those people who found you online.
And video marketing will get Google salivating. Why? Because Google LOVES web video. So why not use it to your advantage?

Or interview your friends or clients and have them give a testimonial about how you and your product have improved their lives. You can do it! No one is stopping you from acting NOW… no one but YOU!
The Power Of Online Video
INTERNET VIDEO MARKETING creates intimacy between you and your audience. It’s just you and the viewer, one-on-one. It’s the same principle that makes viewers think they have a personal relationship with actors on sitcoms or in the movies. It’s the whole deal about seeing someone close up, or hearing them speak, laughing at their jokes, crying at their pain. It’s like you’re going through the whole drama with them. And the bigger TV and computer screens get, the more intense the perceived relationship is going to be.
Google was well aware of this when they bought YouTube. And it’s probably the best $1.6 billion they ever spent. So take advantage of that aspect of human behavior. Use internet video, YouTube, and Google to create TRUST, LOYALTY, and CREDIBILITY for your brand.
If YOU don’t NOW, your COMPETITION just might beat you to the punch.

Who is Charlie Seymour Jr?
Little did he know at the age of six, while sitting on the stage in his first theatrical production, that his business life would lead him to help professionals and executives profit from story telling through video marketing while creating their own legends online. Charlie brings his unique background, experience, and skill together to deliver exceptional marketing exposure for his clients.
Charlie knows in his heart how powerful video is – he’s often called the Video-Crazed MBA Marketer. Not long after losing his father, he started a website, LessonsFromMyGrandson.com, so that his grandson would never grow up not knowing who Charlie is. When people run from a burning apartment or flooded home, they grab their photo albums to keep their memories alive, and that’s probably because their videos are now protected online. He’s one of FIVE generations in his family to direct at the same local theater and his passion outside of his career has been directing “rip your heart out” big musicals like Sweeney Todd, Evita, Cabaret, West Side Story, Follies, A Chorus Line, Hunchback of Notre Dame (which he wrote), and more.
He’s also an Award-Winning Video Producer and Still Photographer; Theater Director, Producer, Actor, Coach; Award-Winning Salesman; #1 Best-Selling Author; Long-time Glazer-Kennedy Student and Marketer; Speaker, Storyteller, Featured Guest in Webinars and Meetups; and oh, yes: he has an MBA from Wharton.
Charlie is not so easily defined. But the thread running through all his varied interests and activities can be summed up as this: Charlie uses online marketing with his passion for storytelling that calls people to action.
Even at an early age, Charlie created stories for people that others wanted to watch. He received his first camera (Brownie: remember them?) at age four and went on to become a professional photographer. He began his video career at age 11 at the side of Robert J. Kerr, the Dupont scientist (and community-theater director) who was a leading specialist in the creation of video tape at a time when a “home machine” weighed 37 pounds and you had to wind the tape from reel to reel. Charlie started directing 3-camera video recordings at age 11 and now regularly has up to five cameras running at the same time. He knows that videos are entertainment plus great information: THAT’S how to get people to watch!
Charlie knows how to get the most from you when creating videos. He appeared in his first main-stage production at age six and directed his first three-act play in 7th grade. He performed in at least one play or musical a year through his college years, founding the student-musical-theater group, Torn Ticket, at Tufts University in 1971, for which he received an Alumni Service Citation. And he wrote and directed The Hunchback of Notre Dame as a major musical with New York composer, Neil Radisch. Charlie then started his own Video and Still-Photography Business in 2000, creating several award-winning, feature-length videos in addition to the Bar Mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah, Wedding, Family Portrait, and Theater photography he became so well known for.
Charlie specializes in documentary-style video stories: they range from 90-minute stories about a Habitat for Humanity house-building project, high school senior class, state championship football team, or a local band to 5-minute shorts that paint a profile of a local business person. His creative storytelling on video has flipped him upside down to show that he “sees the world in a different way,” put a dream sequence into an iPad-case-demonstration video for PLUSMotif, put his audience into the fire and molten-lead crystal for world-famous crystal designer Peter Yenawine. Clearly he can bring a different viewpoint to YOUR story too.
And he’s known for his many on-location interviews where he is able to draw out clients’ expertise, warmth, and personality, elevating their status for the viewing public. You don’t get “the same look that everyone else gets” when Charlie does an interview with you – you get a unique, well-crafted story that tells people why they should work with you. And if you need a short Welcome Video for your website, he knows how to create that as well.
But Charlie brings more than his creativity and shiny-headed good looks to the table. In real estate, he generated $247,368,657.97 in personal sales and more than $1 billion through his marketing leadership skills, being named the Top Salesman in all of Philadelphia; he ran professional theaters in Princeton, NJ and St. Louis, MO; he operated his own photography/video production company; and he continues to consult about (and use) Web 2.0 technology (especially video production, YouTube, LinkedIn, Traffic Geyser, blogging, podcasting, Facebook, WordPress, and Twitter); he directed musical theater (in his “spare” time).
A Boomer himself, Charlie recently spent time studying the buying habits of his generation leading to the insight that, “We’ve gone from Success To Significance in what drives us. We have the things and now want to be sure to leave our mark ON the world (and on at least one other person IN this world). We need to get our stories out, to profit others and ourselves.” He embodies that for himself as well as his clients.
Charlie has two beautiful, talented, and grown daughters (Stacie and Liz), a son-in-law (Chris), a grandson (Beckett), and new granddaughter (Isabel) who enrich his life in everything they do. He lives outside of Philadelphia in Wallingford, PA USA with his wife, Pam, a cat, a dog, 7 computers, and 8 cameras!
