One of the ways in which you can enhance the impact of your Joomla site is by sharing videos on it. By opting to share videos on your Joomla site, you introduce an audiovisual aspect to the site. You are therefore able to reach the visitors who are averse to reading. You are also able to share content and connect with the visitors to your site in a way that you couldn’t, if you were relying on text articles alone. The process of sharing videos on your Joomla site is likely to entail:
- Acquiring the videos to be shared: if you have the necessary skills and equipment, you can record the videos yourself. That shouldn’t be hard, with the cheap video shooting devices that are now available. So you just need to have the skills and the time to record the video. Shooting the videos to be shared on your Joomla site needn’t even be a full-time occupation. You can even do it on a part-time basis. Like if, for instance, you are already working for a company like, say, PepsiCo, you can use the periods when you are off-duty to shoot the videos to be shared on your Joomla site. It would be just a question of visiting the PepsiCo HR portal, at Mypepsico.com to see when you are supposed to be off duty. That then is the time you’d use to shoot the videos to be shared on your Joomla site. Companies like PepsiCo actually give you (some) control over schedule. So you can visit the Mypepsico website, to change your work schedules in a manner that allows you to have adequate time for video shooting.
- Installing a video sharing extension: you may, for instance, use the All Video Share extension, the Yedif video share, MijoVideos… or anything else along those lines.
- Uploading the videos to the Joomla site: the video sharing extension you will be using is likely to have a button you can click on, to upload the videos you wish to share in an easy manner.
- Telling your site’s visitors that you (now) have videos: the objective here is to get the visitors to the site to actually view the videos. See, it is very easy for you to have excellent videos on your site, which end up being unviewed — simply because the visitors to the site don’t know that they are there!
