Yet the videos we created are eclipsing the text references on Google. Besides, as the Bob Kaplitz video notes, people are more inclined to click on a video than pour through paragraphs of text. Then they see the person come alive through their personality and storytelling.

1. Select high interest topics people are likely to search for.
2. Prepare answers that reveal your expertise and your brand.
3. Refine your answers so they get to the point.
4. Be yourself as opposed to trying to play the role of a great expert.
