Shooting video is the fastest way to produce your own unique content for your Carrot site! All you need is your cell phone and a Youtube account.
3 Easy Steps to Better Content
- Shoot a video and upload to YouTube (easy and free on your smart phone!)
- Check out the Learn More section for a quick walk-through on how to curate ideas and shoot your videos
- Publish a new Video Post on your Carrot Site by pasting in a link to your video
- Order an automated transcription to your post right within your post editor!
Behind the scenes, we produce a high-quality transcription of your video, and automatically attach it to your post when it is complete!
Why a transcription?
Shooting a video is an easy way to create content, but not the best way to rank your site for popular search terms. Blog posts are a great way to rank for terms but are time-consuming. An automated transcription takes those ideas in your head and quickly gets unique content on your site that search engines love – fresh content, higher rankings, more leads!
Adding a Transcription
Step 1: Go to your site’s “Content” editor
Step 2: Add a new post
Step 3: Select “Video” type, Add your your video url, and save
IMPORTANT: In order for us to access your video for transcription the URL you paste needs to be in a format we understand. If your YouTube URL does not look like either of these examples you will run into trouble:
If you are unsure how to get the URL for your youtube video: follow this support article and choose the “Copy the link” option.
(we’ll automatically pull in the video title and description to your post)
Step 4: Order your transcription
We’ll send you an email with confirmation that your transcription has completed, within the next day or so. Your post will be automatically updated with the transcription shown below to be picked up by search engines. Optionally, hop into your post editor and do any additional formatting or review and tweak grammar if need.
