Two Free Videos (and a Special Offer) for Bloggers and Twitter Users

Posted By Darren Rowse 13th of August 2009 Miscellaneous Blog Tips, Social Media 41

Today two videos were released that involved me and that I think would be of interest to readers.

1. Video interview with Gideon Shalwick – in this video Gideon interviewed me on a range of aspects of blogging.

In the video I talk a little about how I got started but the rest of the interview is packed with a range of tips on how to improve a blog.

The interview goes for just over 33 minutes and includes a special bonus offer that Gideon is giving for anyone who buys my 31 Days to Build a Better Blog Workbook through his affiliate link.

video-2.png2. Twitter Tips for Businesses (and Individuals) – this video is me talking to a set of slides/presentation that I’ve been giving lately at conferences and internally for a number of businesses.

The video goes for around 40 minutes and while it was developed for businesses wanting to get started with Twitter it covers a lot of tips that I think would be relevant to bloggers and individuals with other agendas. The first section covers how I find Twitter benefits my blogging but moves on to a lot of more practical tips on how to use Twitter Effectively.

In total these videos give you over an hour of content – I hope you enjoy them!

    Thanks Darren! I will definitely check out both of these videos, especially the Twitter one. I plan on doing more with Twitter, once I am able to convert my web site into a blog; which I hope I am able to accomplish within the next couple of months.


  3. Yeah, videos. I don’t know.

  4. Videos are always a very good thing when it comes to learning. Can’t wait to watch.

  5. Thank you for the video, and I’ve look at them all. I like the second video about how to use twitter effectively.


  6. Real kind of you to share the videos with us. Hope we are able to learn some great information. Really looking forward to checking out the Twitter video. Thanks

  7. Thanks for the videos.

  8. I love Gideon’s attention to detail in his videos. He has some subtle music playing under his intro + a few camera angles + plus he shows you clearly on the screen.

    I’d love to see him or you do a post here about video blogging for non-experts.

  9. Nice long videos covering many aspects of blogging and tweeting. thanks

  10. Great Twitter advice. Twitter is a goldmine of traffic but it has to be harnessed the correct way.

    I loved Twitter about 2 years ago but am falling out of love with it because overwhelming number of spamers. Now I use automatic tweets most of the time.

    I’m surprised to see that Delicious was one of your top 5 sources. It’s not even in my top 10. Stumbleupon is my #3 behind Google and direct.

    Why do you think some social bookmarking sites drive traffic to some site but not others?

  11. Thank you for the videos! :)

  12. Thanks Darren,
    I’ll check both.

  13. I enjoyed the interview Darren.

    I wonder why Adsense doesn’t work for you here at Problogger.
    Maybe people already find what they’re looking for here and don’t even look at Adsense ads :P

  15. Thanks for sharing the videos. I’ve learned a great lesson from the interview and came to know Googke Trends, which gives me a lot advantages.

  39. Thanks Darren,
    Excellent video, great tips and a valuable investment of my time. I found your tip about using the Twitter link as a Twitter explanation page really interesting. I’d like to create a custom background, but don’t have Photoshop or know much about laying out an image like that.

  40. With these great twitter tips I should be able to improve my business.
