How To Record Your First Video Online

I finally received my gifts from Santa (a.k.a. my family) tons of love and had a few moments to think about what I’ve done and what the near future may bring to my life too.

There’s a LOT that is expected from me for this year and honestly I feel I couldn’t be more ready.

So are you ready to open your Christmas gifts already?

If yes, then what are you waiting for, let’s do it!

How To Record Your First Video Online For Internet Marketers

First of all, I’m releasing the Patrick Griffin Interview to the public (the FULL video is below).

The intention was to give away a PDF transcript and sell the video as an upsell but I just couldn’t do that.

The interview was part of an experiment that was being shared for FREE to the public and this material should remain FREE as well.

Warning: this video was part of the Video Review Challenge and I was DEAD SCARED when I was recording it.

I had no clue on how to introduce Patrick so I just talked and mumbled for around one and a half minute.

However, if you do manage to survive my introduction, the video provides amazing content as Patrick literally CRUSHED the interview (in a good way, of course!)

I felt nervous at times and a bit more secure at others, so it was a rollercoaster for me but I would do it AGAIN without any second thoughts.

This is my gift for my non-subscriber readers, hope you like it!

Somebody Made Her First Video Online

I wanted to include a very good friend of mine here (hope she doesn’t mind because I didn’t ask for permission) who recently recorded her first video online ever and even uploaded it to YouTube!

She’s a regular reader here and one of the many that has always encouraged me to keep doing what I’m doing.

Her name is Linda Bond and she writes at

You can watch Linda first video on Youtube here.

I hope you keep doing many more videos Linda and that this marks the start of a great Internet Marketer using video, you ROCK my friend! ;-)

Special Gifts ONLY For Marketing With Sergio Subscribers

For the people that have opted to received the FREE updates from the blog, you’re going to have two amazing extra gifts and your special instructions will be delivered right to your inbox.

I can’t say much about the gifts here because I’m planning to take them down after we enter the 2012.

If you’re wondering why would I want to remove a gift, specially when it’s a GREAT gift then here’s my answer:

I want to reward my long time subscribers with exclusivity gifts.

So I figured out that if someone has been for let’s say a month on my list and I released one different gift every two weeks, by the end of the month this subscriber would have two gifts right?

If someone subscribed on the third or fourth week of that same month, this new subscriber would only get access to one of those gifts, makes sense?

The cool thing about this procedure is that you’re receiving cool stuff that not everyone is going to be able to have and I want you to see for yourself the level of exclusivity you’ll receive when you opt-in to the blog updates.

SPECIAL NOTE: I am not saying I’m going to provide a gift every 15 days, this is just a scenario to illustrate my point!

Two Gifts For This Week

Get paid to take digital photos

Get Paid To Take Digital Photos

Micro niche product in making money with Digital Photography.

It’s good with updated information and it took me quite some time to pick this one.

It explains where can you go to sell your photos, for how much, etc.

Top 100 WordPress Plugins

This product dabbles with WordPress Plugins.

I could literally speak for DAYS about wordpress plugins and this product has them listed and ordered by type.Top 100 wordpress plugins

This can make you some GOOD money just by rebranding it.

(I did not touch the product by the way, you get it without any aff links)

There are PLENTY of features you can do with this as I provide everything needed:

Sell it as is, rebrand it, use the squeeze pages for list building, you can do literally anything you want with it.

Take Action

This is just a recommendation:

I’m NOT going to offer the same products again at another time and yes, I will keep track of what has been offered in the past, I’m that organized.

I have some amazing things planned to offer to my subscribers that will include giveaways, beta testing accounts for paid products, exclusive gifts and much more but I will dive deeper into this matter on its proper update.

For now, remember that we’re all on this together and by helping you, I’m helping myself too, so it’s a win-win situation! ;-)

Oh and before I forget, these two gifts are the very first gifts that are going to be delivered to my amazing subscribers so if you still haven’t signed to get the FREE blog updates, you’re still on time to not lose any of the offers!

How To Receive The FREE Offers

You’ll have to sign up to get the blog updates (look for a sign up form in the sidebar) then confirm your email address and basically, that’s it!

I take care of my subscriber’s emails like they were my own, so you’ll receive ZERO spam from me.

I hope you receive the 2012 with all your batteries recharged, energy at full and be ready to give it all on your marketing adventure, stay awesome my friend.

Thanks again for everything and hope to see you on the inside!


PS. If you’re already a subscriber, you don’t have to do anything, I’ll deliver these babies right into your inbox!

    Hey Sergio,

    That’s an awesome offer and video. I’m just starting out with creating videos, but it will mainly be tutorials, I’ll show my subscribers and readers how I do things when it comes to online marketing.

    I’ll subscribe to your newsletter right now :)

      Hi Jens,

      I think your videos are quite good man, the Kindle video was top notch and was very clear to understand.

      Short, sweet and straight to the point, GREAT stuff! (I already downloaded the books and I started reading The Flinch)

      Thank you for subscribing to my newsletter, still a (raw) work in progress but I’m trying to make it valuable as I can.

      Take care and thanks again for that Kindle video you made, brought many cool ideas to mind! ;-)

      PS. Looking forward for your next videos, I’m sure they are going to be awesome and I wouldn’t want to miss any of them. :)

    Great interview Sergio and thanks for sharing it. I’ve finally found time to watch it. I have all sorts of things earmarked for the holidays. I couldn’t wait to get at my computer this morning. No one else can understand my addiction!

    I like the idea of rewarding your subscribers with gifts. You have just put a new twist on relationship marketing.

    Wishing you lots of success in 2012.

      Thanks Sandy, that’s amazing and thank you for surviving my intro!

      I understand your addiction, turning my monitors ON (I almost never shut down my computers) when I first wake up, it’s the first thing I do in the morning LOL

      The idea of the exclusivity gifts is going to take a bit of time to maintain but I think it will be a very rewarding plus for my subscribers.

      (I just figured his out yesterday so I may have to draw an algorithm or at least a mind map to not get lost in the process)

      Thank you for your best wishes Sandy and I hope the best for you too on this start of week and on the upcoming 2012 as well, take care! ;-)

    What a wonderful interview Sergio. I think it’s great that you were nervous and didn’t mind showing it because this is a wonderful lesson we can all learn. We will make mistakes, we will stumble over our words, nothing we do for the first time will be perfect. That’s what learning is all about. So with that being said, great job.

    Now on to Patrick, I really enjoyed what he shared and see, he didn’t even want to do videos in the beginning either. But that’s what about every mentor will tell you, do it anyway. Just get over it because it’s not going to kill you. So thank you Patrick for sharing your area of expertise with us all.

    I was also very proud of Linda for shooting her first video. I think she did a wonderful job and I look forward to many more in the future of her in front of the camera.

    Your gifts are awesome Sergio and a wonderful way to reward your readers. I have no doubt that the information you share with your list will benefit them in some way. You will be exploding in 2012 so they better suck up everything they can learn from you.

    Thanks again and great job. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and here is wishing you a wonderful new year.

      Hey Adrienne,

      Patrick simply was DA man on this interview!

      I still don’t know how did he manage to keep up with all my random ramblings haha (thanks Pat!)

      A thing I didn’t say here, is that Patrick kept suggesting I should do videos, I was listening but I was not going to do them, at least, not yet.

      When the trip to Europe came along, I thought to myself “this is it, this can’t wait any longer…” and I just went at it so I will always be grateful for Patrick and encouraging me to do so.

      Patrick had a hard time in the beginning too so while I watched his process, I thought I could do that too, that’s why I decided to publish my progress online too, so others could do the same.

      Now Linda has just stepped in!

      This is an amazing way to help each other, I really can’t say how much I appreciate the networking thing and the amazing group of friends I have right now.

      Thank you for all the time you spend here Adrienne and every single comment you write.

      Reading each comment of yours makes me smile and feel I can do anything, so a big THANK YOU my friend.

      Hope this 2012 we can grow a lot more and hopefully I’ll be following the same path of a social media rockstar (YOU).

      Keep up the amazing job and speak soon Adrienne! ;-)

    Hi Sergio,
    I really enjoyed doing that video with you and I didn’t have any problems at all with your long introduction.
    Also I am glad that so many of your blog readers have derived some benefit from it so it was a winning situation all round.
    But what I really wanted to do today was to thank you for your two Christmas gifts…and while I may be a bit late in saying thanks I was also a bit late in opening my presents as I have only just downloaded them also.
    I am not sure what I will do with them yet but they both look good and I am sure I will use them.
    So thanks once again.
    P.S. I think I may just have two of your blog posts to catch up on now so I think I will visit those right now.
    That will allow me to be back in the correct sequence as you produce new material.

      Hey Patrick,

      Thank you my friend, I have seen many interviews since we did this and I definitely did it wrong but hey, it was to show I was learning!

      Considering the video interview has 22 plays and it goes beyond the 40 minute mark, I think that’s gotta say something, so some people actually are watching the entire interview.

      About the Christmas presents they are no longer available for new subscribers, I talked about it and kept my word. I just left the files there for current subscribers to catch up (like you) and be able to download them but these are no longer being offered to new subscribers (I modify constantly the confirmation page).

      On the other hand, glad you’re catching up mate.

      I have been doing a lot of stuff lately but have some big things to add for this one right here in the upcoming days, I’m not sure how people will react but I’m giving my 200% so I hope it’s good!

      Take care and speak soon man! ;-)
