Now these videos are going to be on average less than 2 minutes long and I’m going to add some of these video to my already published content posts/pages. And speaking of content, it’s the content that I have already created here on my site that’s going to be my source for my video content.
Set up a website. Professional or business websites can also use the Affiliate program. However, they are best used with people who do not sell similar products on their website, since Amazon’s marketplace can drive business away.

In 2018, Facebook video is going to be a key component of digital strategy. The aim of Facebook video ads is to help retailers engage customers and drive sales. Facebook is testing a new ad format called lifestyle templates for the Collection ad format (which has been around since March) to help print catalog marketers with “bringing the richness of their catalog creative to mobile.” This ad unit consists of a video on top and four recommended products below(2).

I try to personally just err on the side of being as transparent as possible about my relationship with the brand. So if they gave me a free product, and I’m not getting compensated for it, I’ll just say that.

I just try personally just to be– because trust is the main thing, like currency with your viewers that is most important. And anything that could kind of potentially violate that, personally I’m just like, I want to be completely up front with you guys about everything, whatever’s going on, so there’s no questions. And you guys can always feel like you can trust what I’m saying.

First, put the good stuff into the first 5-10 seconds. As the chart above highlights, viewership begins dropping with each additional second that passes after this. Whatever you want the maximum number of viewers to see should go into the very beginning of your video.
