  Hey there to all of you ADM`ers out in Digital Land!


I`ve been getting quite a few emails from around the country inquiring about my videos & I thought I`d share a very simple process that should be very helpful for anyone wanting to get involved with videos quickly & combining it with their marketing strategies.

Ok ..... let`s take another look at another way of inexpensively reaching out & engaging clients using Craigs List & video.

In this ad, I`ve uploaded a video on You Tube(`cause it`s FREE! remember that`s the theme here!) & I`m going to show you how to utilize your You Tube Clip in a Craigs List Ad!

Then I`ve taken a still from the actual clip & made this my "anchor pic" for the link in the ad;

Next I uploaded the "still" or "Anchor pic" in a photo hosting service(there`s a ton of FREE ones out there! Just Google "Free Image Hosting" or "Free Photo Hosting" & you`ll find many

Then I add content i.e. Whom to contact, phone number etc. to my Craigs List Ad.
ex. *Click this picture to see a LIVE Walk-Around & to hear about this Hot Special!* If you`re looking for your "1st Car" tell Mom & Dad about the deal! Call Tito D. right now at 917-627-9138*Call him anytime! His cell`s on 24/7, he`s open all night!"

Next I link the "anchor pic" to the actual You Tube video making it clickable;

Then I insert my vehicles details below the "anchor pic" -


* Here`s what your ad will look like on Craigs List;


*Presto! You`ve just created a highly effective Digital Marketing Ad for literally nothing!

Can`t beat that price & you can make a ton of these ads! FREE!!

Love it Ken. You're always cutting edge when it comes to thinking outside the box.
Hey Jerry,

Thanks.... Glad you liked it.

Well apparently someone else liked it a little too....... `Cause they took a deposit on it tonight after some young girl saw it on Craigs List!

Chalk one up for ol` "Brett Favre" (that`s what all the younger guys at VW bust my balls & refer to me as!! -lol! `Cause I`m old enough to be their Father! -lol..... I always say to them, "You guys are my Fountain of Youth"- guess they keep me "young" -lol)

Anyway,...thanks for writing & glad you enjoyed it my friend,
