What you want to get from them is their thumbnail. YouTube thumbnails are the book covers of the online video world. Our decision whether to click on a video often comes down to its thumbnail: an eye-catching image draws us in, while a boring or blurry one puts us off.
Obviously you don’t want to copy the exact thumbnail but you want to get an idea of their thumbnail. You want to see what kind of thumbnails your top competitors are diffusing and what kind of headlines etc. they have.
You want to know what the video subject is, for example “Five ways to lose weight”, “lazy life high to weight loss that actually works” etc.
Once you’ve got a headline you can either create the video yourself or go to Fiverr and find someone to write a testimonial for you. This a natural testimonial.
You can write the script yourself.
You can send the script and get a 1 to 2 minute video done for you and it will probably cost around $50 to $60. It could naturally cost a bit more depending on what you want but you should make that money back pretty fast.
You shouldn’t be scared to invest money in your business because as you have to invest some money to make money. This is one of your investments.
so get the Video made, get the critical thumbnail, write a cool head line based on headlines that you have seen, upload the video, insert your link and start making some sales.
