“You’re About To Learn Just How Easy it is To Embed Amazon S3 Hosted Videos on Your WordPress Website…”
This ‘Point & Click’ WP Plugin Makes it Super Fast and Easy to Get Your Videos to Show Up On Your Blog Pages & Posts!”
Dear Online Business Owner,
Have you been avoiding using video for marketing and product creation because of the lack of choices for hosting and embedding video?
It’s no surprise if you have. Many small business owners mistakenly think there are only two options: YouTube, where everything is public and you’re limited to 15 minutes, or self-hosted, where you have total control and a hefty hosting bill to match.
I’m happy to tell you, now there is a better way to use video on your WordPress site without worrying about privacy issues or bandwidth bills.
The Benefits of Video
Before we talk about HOW you can use video, let’s consider WHY you want to use video. We all know blogging is a fantastic way to drive traffic to your site, but the truth is, not every visitor will spend the time to read your content, no matter how engaging it is. Some people simply prefer to browse sites that offer videos or other easy-to-consume content.
Of course, there are other benefits as well. For example, some types of content are just better suited for video. Long, screenshot filled articles are easier to digest when presented as short instructional videos. Opt-in rates can improve with a personal message delivered via video. And that information product you keep meaning to produce? Video is the perfect solution for a user-friendly, inviting, and easy-to-consume product.
Not only are all these formats just better suited to video than to text or even photos, video allows you to really let your creative juices flow. The free video-editing packages available today make it easier than ever to give your videos that professional look – without investing a lot of time or money. When you’re burned-out with blogging, shooting and editing a quick video can be a great way to keep the content flowing.
But Where Do You Host Your Videos?
While posting videos on your website or blog can be good for business and a lot of fun as well, there are some serious technological hurdles you’ll need to jump before you get started, beginning with where you’ll host your videos.
video length and that allows you to control where and when the video is played.
Here’s another little tidbit about your host, in case you’re still not convinced: That “unlimited” hosting plan is only unlimited until you go over your allotment.
When you start hosting large files like videos you’ll very likely find yourself on the wrong side of a huge hosting bill. That’s if your host doesn’t just shut your site down and ask you to take your business elsewhere. Imagine the damage to your business should that happen in the middle of a big launch.
What Does it Cost to Use Amazon S3?
Well, I did a little comparison to show you exactly what you can expect to spend when hosting video on your own server versus hosting on Amazon.
Standard storage on Amazon will cost you just $0.14 per GB, while on a popular reseller plan (remember, those unlimited plans really aren’t) that same storage will cost you $0.50 per GB.
Not only that, but the reseller plan will cap your bandwidth, so just when you get the go-ahead for a big JV partnership, you’ll find your site offline – and your account closed. And you don’t even want to think about what happens when more than two or three people are trying to watch your videos at the same time.
Much better to be prepared with a service that’s both inexpensive and powerful.
You can see that hosting videos on Amazon really is the best way to ensure your hosting bill remains reasonable and your site stays on line. But this option isn’t without its technical difficulties.
WordPress prefers self-hosted video – So much so that you’ll even find a handy upload link right in your post editing screen. What’s clearly lacking, unfortunately, is a way to easily embed video hosted outside your domain.
Bandwidth theft is a real issue – In order to embed Amazon-hosted video on your WordPress site, most existing plugins require you to make the video public – which allows unscrupulous webmasters to swipe your URL and embed your video on their site. They get your content, while you pay the bill.
These problems and others are what keep bloggers and small business owners from using video to increase sales, grow their readership, and build a stronger, more stable business. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
