Why You Need to Create a Redirect and How to Do It
The day will come when you will want to edit the title and URL of a page or post on your website. You will look at the title of the page or the URL and say to yourself, “Gosh that’s not very descriptive, I could do a better job.” Before you hit that edit button, think of the consequences of changing that title and, in particular, that URL. Did you tweet that post out there? If someone saved the link and you change it, the person who saved it will not be able to get back to your page. What they will get is a 404 error – page not found” on your website. I don’t want that to happen to you. I want your website to work flawlessly because your website markets you, your services, and/or products. You need to learn to edit the URL and create a redirect. This video will show you how to do this.
A NOTE ABOUT THE VIDEO:
Ever the one to learn, learn, learn and try, try, try … I was creating a presentation in PowerPoint one day when I noticed some video features. I’d never noticed them before. After I finished the presentation, I poked around the software and Googled “Making Video with PowerPoint” and found a few tutorials.In my research, I learned that some universities use PowerPoint’s video capabilities. Instructors load PowerPoint, record their voice over the slides, put it up on a server and students log in to watch tutorials. I’m insatiable when it comes to trying out technology that’s within my grasp…so I decided to give it a go!
Here’s an outline of the process I used:
- I created a branded presentation.
- I created a script.
- I created the slides.
- I recorded. And re-recorded. And re-recorded… I think I went about five rounds.
- I saved the project.
- I created a video from the project.
- And now you see it.
YOU can create a video using a PowerPoint presentation, just as I have done. The quality is fair. (Like, I don’t know why mine skips. Annoying, but with a bit of research, I can likely improve the quality). This didn’t cost me any money. I already had PowerPoint. It did take time, I think about six hours, but that includes creating a branded presentation. Now that I have it, I should save two hours if I create another video from PowerPoint.
