Get your product in an Ask Doctor Jo video!

Hi, I'm Doctor Jo, a Physical Therapist and Doctor of Physical Therapy. I hope you enjoy my video demos of stretches & exercises for common injuries and syndromes. Be safe. Have fun. And I hope you feel better soon.

Thanks for your interest in having your product appear in a video on the Ask Doctor Jo YouTube channel, website, and social media channels including Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, Reddit, and Tumblr. We have three different ways to incorporate a product in a video. These levels and the fee involved for each are described below.

Also, PLEASE READ the Frequently Asked Questions at the bottom of this page for more details about getting your product in a video.

If you'd like to move forward with getting your product in an Ask Doctor Jo video, please contact us and let us know which level you are interested in purchasing.

If after researching and using your product, Doctor Jo does not feel she can present your product favorably (i.e. it does not perform as advertised or is of poor quality), we will not create the video, and a full refund will be issued.

PLEASE NOTE: We no longer do dedicated Product Reviews where Doctor Jo talks specifically about your product for the entire length of the video because these were not popular with our viewers. As a result, if your product is complex or requires a lot of explanation to understand what it is and/or how to use it, we may not be able to include it in a video.


 

PRODUCT PLACEMENT - $3,000

Your product will be used in a segment of one of my regular stretching and exercise videos. In a product placement video, I do not explain or talk about the product in any way. I’ll only mention I’m using your product in the segment and direct viewers to a YouTube “card” if they’d like to purchase it. Then again at the end of the video, I’ll hold up your product and direct viewers to a YouTube “end screen” graphic where they can purchase your product.

An example of a product placement can be found in the video below at about the 2:43 mark.

 


 

PRODUCT MENTION - $5,000

Your product will be briefly talked about and used in a segment of one of my regular stretching and exercise videos. I’ll mention I’m using your product, highlight a couple of the product’s features that I feel make it especially useful or unique (this section will last approximately one minute), and then I’ll use it during one stretch or exercise if that's appropriate for the product. During the segment, one YouTube “card” will be displayed inviting viewers to purchase the product. At the end of the segment, I’ll direct viewers to another YouTube “card” to purchase the product. Finally, at the end of the video, I’ll hold up the product again and direct viewers to a YouTube “end screen” graphic where they can purchase your product.

An example of a product mention can be found in the video below at about the 4:09 mark.

 


 

PRODUCT FEATURE - $7,500

Your product will be featured throughout an entire video. While the video will not be about your product specifically, it will be about a general topic where your product is the example of what’s being discussed or used. For instance, in the video below, the topic of the video is "How to Use a TENS Unit," and the product being featured is the TENS unit that’s used throughout the whole video. Near the beginning of the video, I'll mention I’m using your product. As the video progresses, I'll casually mention some specific details about your product and a few of the features that I feel make it especially useful or unique as they relate to the overall video. This is NOT a demonstration of how to use your product or a product review, and the length of the video will depend entirely on how long it takes me to give a high level overview of the topic I'm discussing. During the video, two YouTube “cards” will be displayed inviting viewers to purchase the product. Then at the end of the video, I’ll hold up the product again and direct viewers to a YouTube “end screen” graphic where they can purchase your product.

Here's an example of a product feature.


 

Still have questions? Here are some FAQs.

Can I get a discount?
We're happy to offer a discount if you purchase multiple videos (of any level) at the same time. The discount varies based on the number of videos purchased and the scope of the project. To discuss projects with multiple videos, please contact us.
 
Can I download the video (or parts of it) and re-upload it to my own YouTube channel, website, or social media page?
No. This practice can cause penalties by YouTube and other social media platforms resulting in little or no traffic for either of the videos. You are, however, encouraged to link to or share the link to our YouTube video on social media or embed the video on your website using the “embed” code provided on the original video by YouTube. If you have questions about how to do this, please ask us. 
 
Can I tell you what to say about the product in the video?
No. The videos consist of Doctor Jo’s honest opinions after researching and using the product herself. She’ll highlight things she thinks will be of interest or use to our viewers. As a result, she will not read from a script, outline, or talking points. If there are things you want her to consider mentioning, please bring those to our attention BEFORE the video is shot. If Doctor Jo agrees with what you want to cover, she’ll be happy to include it in the video if time permits.
 
Where do I send the product and/or payment?
These will both be listed in the Product Agreement you will need to sign before moving forward.
 
Will you put a link to purchase the product in the video’s description and/or on your website?
Yes. This can be a link to the product on Amazon or a link to the product’s sales page on your website. NOTE: If your product is available for sale on Amazon, we strongly suggest sending viewers there to purchase because in our experience, links to Amazon almost always result in more sales than a link to the product’s website.
 
Do you have any demographic data for your YouTube channel?
Yes. Here is some general demographic data based on the "watch time" for my YouTube channel:
Location: US (45%), India (12%), UK (7.5%), Canada (6%), Australia (3.1%), Other (26.4%). Gender: Male (51%), Female (49%) Age Ranges: 25-24 (24%), 35-44 (20%), 45-54 (17%), 55-64 (15%), 65+ (11%), 18-24 (11%), 13-17 (1.2%)
 
Will you put a link to my website in the video’s description or on your website?
No… and yes. We will only link to your website if that’s where you want us to direct viewers to purchase the product. In that case, the link must go directly to the product’s description/sales page. Again, if your product is available for sale on Amazon, we strongly suggest sending viewers there instead. In our experience, links to Amazon almost always result in more sales than a link to the product’s website.
 
Can I provide a product discount or do a product giveaway for your viewers?
Absolutely! We always recommend our partners offer a discount to our viewers. Even a discount of 10% can help increase the likelihood to buy. We usually don’t recommend a giveaway, however, because that can cause people to not purchase the product since they are hoping they’ll win the giveaway. If you decide to do a giveaway, you will be responsible for shipping the prize to the winner. NOTE: Doctor Jo will not mention a discount or giveaway in the video to avoid dating the video once the promotion has ended. Instead, information about the discount and/or giveaway will be listed in the video's description.
 
How long does it take to make a product video?
We shoot videos about once a month, so depending on when you contact us, it could take anywhere from 6 to 8 weeks before you get a link to the video for approval. We’ll be happy to give you an estimate once you decide to work with us.
 
Can I pick the date my video will launch?
Yes… kind of. The best days for video releases on our channel are Mondays, Tuesdays. and Wednesdays, so we always recommend one of those. We also typically release just one video a week (and always have at least 5 days between video releases), so the date you want may already be taken. Once you decide to work with us, we can talk more about releasing the video on a specific date if you have one in mind. 
 
Can you feature more than one of my products in a video?
No. We will only feature one product per video.
 
Will other products be featured in my product’s video?
We will only feature one paid product in a video. Doctor Jo may use other products in the video while performing a specific stretch or exercise, but the product will not be a competing product, and it will not be mentioned by a brand name or have callouts to purchase that product.
 
How many product sales can I expect?
It’s impossible for us to answer this question since it depends on many factors including the price of the product, the perceived value, the popularity of the topic the product relates to, whether or not you help us promote the video, etc. Some of our product videos are still generating multiple sales every week (more than three years after they were launched), while others have only sold a few products.
 
How many views will the video get?
Again, this is a question we can’t really answer due to all the reasons we listed in the previous answer. Our most successful product video has received more than a million views, while others have only gotten a few thousand views.
 
Can my product be in the crowdfunding stage?
No. We will not consider products that are in the crowdfunding stage.
 
Once the video launches, can you tell me how many products were sold because of the video?
If your product is sold on Amazon, we will create an Amazon Associates Link to the product for our viewers. This will allow us to track how many products are sold as a result of that link. We are happy to provide this information upon request. Keep in mind, our Amazon Associates Link will not track sales from people who don’t click the link or who buy the product somewhere else. Tracking sales is another good reason to offer our viewers a discount since you will be able to track sales that way.
