Thanks a lot for the tactis, especially for #22. Desperate in growing my blog which I have been writing for 1.5 years and still have less than 4,000 uniques monthly, I was looking for "traffic increase tips" and found your post. Frankly, I was thinking to give up and not "waste" my time for the blog any more... I was thinking, may be there is not enough audience in my niche, or may be the topics or my articles are not compelling enough... Now I know - I should be patient and not give up. Thanks a lot!
What does aperture mean for your video? When a lot of light comes into the camera (with a low f-stop number), you get a brighter image and a shallow depth of field. This is great for when you want your subject to stand out against a background. When less light comes into the camera (with a high f-stop number), you get what's called deep depth of field and are able to maintain focus across a larger portion of your frame.

It’s becoming increasingly important for businesses to have a presence on social media.

In fact, the biggest challenges of video marketing in 2017 are strategic: How to build a solid and effective video marketing strategy, how to create content that people want to consume, and how to create engaging videos that get shared. Additionally, video content marketers need to have a solid understanding of metrics, and how they indicate a video’s success and areas for improvement.
These communities are also excellent sources of inspiration for posts on your blog. By observing what performs well and earns recognition, you can tailor your content to meet those guidelines and reap the rewards in visits and awareness. My top recommendation for most bloggers is to at least check whether there's an appropriate subreddit in which you should be participating. Subreddits and their search function can help with that.
