Never Used a Sales Video? Now’s Your Chance!

Posted By Darren Rowse 30th of May 2011 Blogging for Dollars 11

If you’re a regular here at ProBlogger, you know that I often post videos on the blog.

I love doing video posts—it’s fun, it’s something a bit different, and it’s a good way to really reach out to my readers. I think videos provide bloggers with a good opportunity to connect in a way that can be hard to do through written text.

I’ve also found video really useful for generating sales.

Not my videos, though. I’ve made a lot of video posts, but when it comes to promoting products, I know I need something that’s a bit more powerful—I need videos that have an edge.

Just as writing informational blog posts is different from writing sales copy, preparing a standard video for my blog is very different from making a sales video.

Enter: Samurai Sales Videos.

I worked with Timothy Marc, the guy behind Samurai Sales Videos, and his team to make the sales video for Photo Nuts and Shots, an ebook I released earlier this year on dPS. We used the video on the launch post for the ebook.

Here’s that original video.

Timothy and his team use a combination of great video and scripting, along with some little-known psychological selling techniques to create sales videos that have that “edge” I mentioned.

The results? This is our biggest-selling ebook yet.

We had a lot of great feedback from customers about the video, and it made a big contribution to making the ebook such a success.

Timothy’s now offering ProBlogger readers a $50 discount on his Samurai Sales Video package, which includes:

  • 6 minutes of HD video
  • bold graphics and text
  • 1 royalty-free audio track
  • 3 royalty-free images
  • script creation (or you can use your own)
  • professionally recorded audio
  • brainspan technology
  • a 100% money-back guarantee

Usually, the package costs $499, but if you order in the next seven days, you’ll pay just $449.

When you order, just use the code “PROBLOGGER” to get the discount.

Timothy’s service made a big difference to my product sales, and I’m sure he can do the same for you. Don’t miss out on this generous discount!

  1. Great news !!
    No one should miss this oppurtunity to buy the biggest selling ebook!
    I woudnt miss it if only I had the money. I guess the price is high because of the “psychological selling techniques”

  2. I like his sales video.

    But how good is it to allow someone else to create a sales video for “our” product?

    I dont know about you, but I wouldn’t buy from someone who doesn’t represent their product.

    I think these would be good to lure in customers for B2B products. If you are in the internet marketing or other such niches, this wont work.

    Or will it?

    • Adarsh – not quite sure I understand your argument. Don’t companies hire ad agencies to make ads for them all the time? I’m sure you buy plenty of products from companies that don’t create their own TV commercials….

      • For companies this is certainly good. But for bloggers, does this apply?

        I mean, say you released the problogger 31 days work book sales video. And you got someone else to do it. Will that be really effective?

        For big corporations it is understandable. But for bloggers and small online business owners, isn’t it much better to present our products by ourselves rather than hire someone else?

        Appearing on our own sales video makes it more personal to the viewer rather than making it seems like a commercial.

  3. Money back guarantee is a great feature to increase the sales. The buyer thinks that how confident the seller is. As Mushfique said the price is really high, and the discount is too small. I think the discount should be more to attract even more people.

  4. They sold this website on Flippa:

    Wonder if it’s still his team for these orders or if it’s someone new?

    • Hey Chris,

      The only thing that has changed with Samurai is ownership – the team is all still the same.
      I run Samurai operations and we are still processing all orders as normal.

      The old owner, Timothy is also still involved with the company and nothing has changed.

      Any questions please feel free to shoot me an email!

  6. Shame there is no mobile version. I think that is hugely important now. Any chance of seeing that in the near future?

  7. Very Cool!… I’ll be in touch with those guys soon. ;]

  8. I am always looking for new ways to be more effective with my blog, and to reach a broader audience. Thank you for the insights.
