VIDEO MARKETING: Why Jimmy Fallon is Here to Stay
I woke up this morning to an alert on my phone: it was Jimmy Fallon and Idina Menzel singing “Let It Go” from the kids hit “Frozen” with classroom instruments.
I didn’t think too much of it except that it brought my entire family together to watch this funny video on my phone.
Then my wife made a comment that was revolutionary:
Jimmy Fallon is gonna be ok cuz he knows how to go viral…
Look at that, all my years of talking about online marketing, about video marketing, and about going “viral” and my wife had been taking mental notes the whole time.
It’s true – Jimmy Fallon gets social media; he gets how to use topics that are already “in the news” in order to capture a varied audience.
To illustrate this point, here are a few examples of how Jimmy Fallon uses trending topics to go viral and indirectly self-promote:
The Top 6 Viral Videos from Jimmy Fallon on the Tonight Show
Video #1: Jimmy & Idina Menzel Sing “Let It Go” from “Frozen”

Video #5: Brian Williams Raps “Rapper’s Delight”
What a mix! Not only does this show dedication, but it ties in a marketing segment that actually knows who Brian Williams is (the older peeps) and then associates that with a hip-hop tune all the younger people can sing by heart.

The Takeaway’s for Your Business
I know, I know, you’re probably thinking to yourself…”Yeah, but this is Jimmy Fallon…” or “Yeah, but he already had a ton of visitors…” or maybe “Yeah, but he has all this technical equipment and time…”
ENOUGH with the “Yeah, but’s”.
Takeaway #1: You have to start somewhere.
Jimmy Fallon’s first video was only a year ago, it was with Charlie Sheen, and it only has 251,149 views. Sure, that’s quite a few views, but compared to the views he gets now, that’s nothing. Even back then Jimmy was watching what was trending (Charlie Sheen at the time) and was implementing a strategy to get viewers, shares, and in turn, LINKS to help with rankings in search.
Takeaway #2: Video marketing is something EVERY local business can be doing.
I don’t care if you’re a plumber, an electrician, an attorney, a dermatologist, or an author – you can create videos that will help people “SEE” who you are, what you do, share helpful information, etc.
The rumor is that “Youtube is the 2nd biggest search engine next to Google” (not 100% true), and whether it is or not, people are using Youtube and other video platforms to find answers to questions, reviews on products and services, and maybe even just a good laugh. You can help them find what they’re looking for with simple videos about what you do.
Takeaway #3: Watch the news, stay in tune, and create something similar related to your industry.
A high proportion of viral marketing campaigns are based off of other trending topics in the news. Jimmy Fallon gets this: he uses popular songs, trending entertainers, and past viral campaigns to create new and updated content or parodies on past content.
You can do this too.
Takeaway #4: Create your first Youtube video today by setting up your phone and interviewing yourself.
It doesn’t have to be break-through. It doesn’t have to be super-professional. Ask yourself some questions and then answer those questions. Make a list of frequently asked questions you get from clients then answer those with a video.
Not only are you providing helpful content, but you’re “putting a name with a face” and creating content on another website that gets TONS of natural traffic.
Takeaway #5: Don’t expect to have the type of instant Jimmy Fallon success.
And honestly, you don’t need it. Jimmy Fallon’s audience is global. Your audience is most likely within 50 miles of your brick and mortar company. If you can get one new lead or sale per day because of a simple one minute Q & A you’ve created, that’s worth it, isn’t it?
Video marketing is here to stay. Jimmy Fallon gets it. Famous musicians get it. Let’s hope your competitors haven’t got it yet.
Once you’ve created your first video, post the link in the comments below and we’ll share it with our readers, fans, followers, etc.
The Start-Up Business Video You Have to See
Have you ever thought about starting an online business?
What held you back?
Was it money? time? lack of experience?
Or were you just afraid someone might already be doing the killer idea you’ve had in your head for some time or that the market was “over saturated”?
Well, step up, do something, and watch this video to inspire you to continue doing what you’ve always done…
So here’s my new challenge:
Every time I talk to a prospect on the phone who has a “break-through” idea, something we’ve “never even HEARD of before”, the “next Facebook for ______ industry” – or whatever – I commit 110% to sending them a link to THIS VIDEO!
How do you think they will react? Think I’ll “close the deal”? 🙂
Have you ever caught yourself saying any of this?
This post was all in fun. If you want realistic help in starting an online business that will succeed, contact Moller Marketing today for a free consultation.
How Many People Really Know the Internet
Special thanks to Seth Godin and the Google Team for a great article on how to make internal sales to your boss – Make a video!
This is AWESOME on a couple different levels!
Keep it Simple!
First, the internet is still new to MANY people. Internet “junkies” that hack away all day often forget that most people don’t know the lingo that we all talk about. How many times have you heard someone say “Fox Fire…” LOL This is one of the reasons I’m so glad I started in the world of online marketing as a “normal person” that wanted to learn about the internet. Not only did this help me “keep it simple” when talking to others about what I do, but it also helped me see things better from the eyes of those that don’t know Copy from Paste.
Video is Simple & Direct
Second, people need the expertise of someone that has been there and done that. I love how Seth Godin and Google use this video as a way to teach people in ANY industry how to reach their audience. For Google, EVERYONE is their audience; they are showing, via this video, that people need to be educated and made aware of what a Browser is before they’ll even be ready to test Google Chrome.
I think this video also teaches us all about the power of video marketing. Gary Vaynerchuk has mastered Vlogging (video blogging) with his Wine Library videos. ESPN does a great job on their website by posting video highlights of the New York Yankees all over the place.
So, the question for each of you:
How are YOU using VIDEO on your website or blog?
Look forward to your answers!
The Beatles Hey Jude at a Whole New Level
This is the best thing I’ve seen on YouTube for a long time:
Are you using video to market your website? If you’re not, you’re really missing out. Although this video isn’t really marketing anything except a really cute and talented little singer, you can use video the same way to promote your products.
A video like this is the “viral” quality: it will get viewed and passed along to millions of people. Find a way to tie it (or a fun video like it) in to your marketing campaign and “viola” – you have traffic that you can’t even handle with tons of backlinks too.
Now go and do likewise 🙂
Video Marketing, are you using it?
I read a really good article this evening about using video in your marketing on your eCommerce sites, blogs, and other online business endeavors.
What we need are tiny, specialized sites that obsess about specific industries. Is there a good video every day about how to do better real estate sales? If there isn’t, there soon will be. Or for heart surgeons? For every segment where there is currently a trade magazine, I believe there’s an opportunity to build a blog-like, woot-like, ad supported page that finds the good stuff.
What I get from this is that, in order to market our services and products most effectively online, we need to have a specific section of our website, possibly on the home page, that’s dedicated to video content. We are a “specialized site that obsesses about [put your mission statement here – what you are focused on doing with your business].” Here are some questions for thought:
“Is there a good video…about how to [make wall murals an important decoration in your home]?”
“Is there a good video…about how to [learn what are the best Japanese recipes and how to use them]?”
“Is there a good video…about how to [find the best cometic gaskets for your racecar engine]?”
“Is there a good video…about how to [keep clogging strong by selecting the right clogging shoes]”?
“Is there a good video…about how to [find the best used paperback books]”?
“Is there a good video…about how to [put your keyword phrase here]”?
The author of the blog post I read, Seth Godin, is a nationally famous public speaker and marketing genius. As I write this article, his ideas about video marketing make more and more sense to me.
How can you implement his ideas on your website?
