The Ostrich Video is Answer Guy Central’s Influency and Integrated Marketing Video Trailer. It’s kind of silly, but it follows the exact model that YouTube says videos ‘like it’ are supposed to use. That, and the “Coca-Cola” commercial, are just two examples of the kind of media we can produce for you or teach you how to pull together on your own.
The chalkboard presentation outlines Influency in a few simple slides, if you’re into that kind of thing. And that Secret Sauce Link? Try it out to see what we’ve said about SEO … since 2010!
