05/22/09 What happen a case study

As some of you know I ran into a little problem with getting my system up so you can see it. Here is what happen first I was using a video capture and editing system that I was unfamilor with.

In the most part everthing went well I recorded everthing and edited what I needed but then I tried to publish it on my blog. The thing is after I messed around I found out that I could not do it as is because as you can see here it does not support video.

(Allowed file types: jpg, jpeg, png, gif, pdf, doc, ppt, odt, pptx, docx.) so then I looked at what I would have to do to get video on my site using wordpress. As you can see here (The VideoPress upgrade allows you to host and play videos right from your blog. VideoPress costs 59.97 credits per year and is per blog.
You can purchase the upgrade from the Upgrades panel of your dashboard.) it cost $50 a year some might say that not bad but I think that not very good either.

So I went in search of alt ways to get my video’s up on my blog. I then decided to check out godaddy.com to see if that was/is very fesablie to do. It turns out that it is here is the break down as far as im concerned with this system.

This from godaddy.com

As you can see would not be very hard and you can import my old blog as well. That did raise some questions oh:

of course that is the best plan they have, now I could of went this route but then I would of run into another problem I still dont have a site for my product yet.

So while this is a good idea for the near future as for right now it does not fit in with my productive + bigger profit-cost equation.

I will show you why in a second, but first there is one last place I knowed could let me post video’s to my website and that place is youtube the only down side I see is you are only allowed 10mins.

So lets look at the three choices we have

productive + bigger profit-cost equation.

scale of one to ten one being the worst and ten being the best

choice one:

wordpress.com:

productive 1 to ten: I would have to give it a 3 because of the high cost of enter

+bigger profit 1 to ten: 3 same as productive

-cost 1 to ten: 3 same as productive

total is: 9

Go Daddy.com

productive 1 to ten: 7 while it can cost more than wordpress it is very high productively because of one thing you get more stuff and more freedom

+bigger profit 1 to ten: 8 because the whole setup allows you to set up yourself to win if you know how too

-cost 1 to ten: 7 the cost is cheap compared to what you get in return.

total is: 22

Youtube:

productive 1 to ten: 10 it cost nothing except time

+bigger profit 1 to ten: 10 while i do not get money directly from the video’s it dont cost me any money either.

-cost 1 to ten: 10 it is free

total is: 30

As you can see over all for now youtube is my best way to get the video’s out while incressing my productively. In the future I will be switching to a service like go daddy for my system.
