So I’m just about to create a video for this inexpensive, small-but-effective audio module that can be used with any µController, when it struck me that I could, perhaps, be of some help to my daughter who is trying to run a UK-based e-Shop selling cat and dog treats, clothes and other nice items that she’s sourced, most of which are not found in your local supermarket.
Well, I have a small YouTube (and even smaller blog) audience who, in all likelihood, may also have a cat or dog and may well want to treat their 4-legged family member to something a bit special – so why not use my audience base to boost traffic to her website? There’s no conflict of interest in our respective products (not unless she suddenly starts buying cheap, Chinese, Arduino-controlled dog locators, anyway). I get no commision or other payment (it’s family, after all) but it might just help her pay the bills.
So I’ve created a small advert for her website that I might embed into my future YouTube videos (YouTube are OK with this, as long as I tell them I’m doing it).
Well, there was a mini-video here, but I’m now informed that she’s getting her website optimised and redesigned for mobiles and tablets. Sigh. All that work for nowt. Kids, hey, who’d have ’em?
Anyway, the short URL to the website (so I can count the clicks, and hence effectiveness) is in this link to www.wagnificentpetcare.co.uk/shop and that’s all there is to it.
Now I really must get back to creating that video for a cheap, Chinese audio module that costs less than a pound (or just over a pound if you include a tiny speaker) and which would easily find a place in my workshop and home automation. It can be triggered by many things (Arduino, RasPi, PIC, even a transistor) and it’s flexible in the way it delivers its payload.
Intrigued? So was I. Want more? Watch the next video on my channel!
(When it’s released I’ll put a direct link here)
