YouTube vs. Wistia and Your Other Big Online Video Questions Answered

You asked for it. You got it.

NOTHING is more powerful and personality-filled in terms of building an audience than creating videos online. Period. Exclamation point. You know this.

But regardless of whatever videos you create (video blogs, interviews, web shows, whatever), I bet you have some questions and especially want to know:

  • What are the differences between a premium video host like Wistia vs. putting your videos on YouTube?
  • How do you make sure your videos are increasing your subscribers (insider tricks)?
  • How do you make awesome videos even on a shoestring budget?
  • How do you find your “video voice”?
  • What is an easy way to light your videos and make ‘em look super cool without spending an arm and a leg?
  • And more.

I tracked down Wistia CEO Chris Savage (awesome guy) to take on your burning questions in today’s interview. I bet you will be surprised by some of his answers (I know I was!). Watch/Listen below and leave some love in the comments section!

I use RISE partner Wistia for video hosting because they rock. Check ‘em out.

    I figured the CEO would be a gray-haired old guy in a suit, so was just going to listen in iTunes. I have to admit that I watched this one instead because he’s pretty cute.

    Soo…the biggest game-changer for me was that Wistia lets you track who has seen the video by their email address. WOW. So basically, I can get insight into how my email list interacts with my show videos. I can see how long they’re watching, where they stopped, whether they purchased, when they purchase, etc. Very cool.

    Thanks also for the tip about being ourselves. I sometimes try to be funny, etc. when commenting on sites, etc. but realized that I’m just bad at being cool. So far, my interviews are going very well because I just started being my not-cool self.

      Dee that cracked me up. Chris has had a lot of surgery. He is actually 393939.5. But, he looks good for her age.

      And absolutely HUGE FEATURE and then you can have someone follow up (a VA or yourself) etc. with peeps who watched the entire, say, promotional video or something.

      I think you’re good at being cool :) hah

    Very cool. Nice to see him honest but also sharing the benefits of different options.

    • David Siteman Garland

      Definitely, we always appreciate the straight-up deal

    Embarrassingly, my biggest takeaway was this: How awesome does the Red wall look behind Chris!!!! And to think I’ve been looking into doing white backgrounds… the red looks so wicked! hahaha. Super cool tracking Chris down David, another awesome interview!

      Hahahahahaha. GREAT point.
