Are you using video as part of your marketing strategy? We have been increasing our video marketing and we are starting to see some real results with it! I wanted to share with you some of our strategies for video marketing and teach the basics of getting started and optimizing your video marketing plan.
I am offering a TWO Part series on video marketing and using YouTube in particular.
First we start with how to create video, getting your YouTube Channel set up and how to upload videos etc. All the basics — then we move into how to optimize your videos and get more traffic to your sites. Traffic equals business. When you intentionally drive traffic to your website then IF you have your site set up to capture information from visitors you can then offer your product or services to your new visitors. Visitors can then turn into customers. EVEN, if you are a locally based business video is an essential strategy.

The Power of Video in Your Business
If you’re already using video as part of your online marketing strategies then you no doubt realize the value of this medium. Read on, though, to ensure you are taking full advantage of the power of video. If you haven’t yet included video as part of your overall marketing strategy, why not? If it’s because you don’t own a video camera, do everything in your power to rent or borrow one. You will notice the boost in profits and then you’ll be able to purchase your own in no time at all. Let’s look at some ways that video can enhance your online business.
Video tutorials are hot and will likely remain hot for some time to come. People are always looking for ways to do something, or ways to do something better, faster, or cheaper. If your own product can be demonstrated using the power of video, that’s even better. Not only can you demonstrate how your product works but you can demonstrate why your product is better than the competition’s. If your product requires assembly, you could boost your profits by showing how easy it is to put together. On the other hand, if it is not particularly easy to assemble, your video could provide a valuable resource for your customers. Any way you look at it, showing your product in action can be a valuable asset that will serve to increase your bottom line.
Even if you don’t have your own product, there is still a lot you can do with video tutorials. You can demonstrate how other products work. There is always someone looking for answers regarding popular products. Maybe you’re a whiz at unclogging vacuum cleaners or changing your own oil. Think about what you do well and consider making a video demonstrating your own talents. If you’re a computer geek, make that talent pay off by producing short videos of how to solve common problems or how to do certain tasks in popular computer software programs.
Video testimonials are far more powerful than the written word simply because we’re never sure who really wrote those words. If you have customers who are happy with your goods or services, consider asking them to provide a video testimonial to add to your website. If they have their own website and can include that in their testimonial that will lend even more credibility to the testimonial and give them a free plug as well. That creates a win/win situation for both you and your customers and can serve as a powerful marketing strategy.
Do some brainstorming yourself to see how you can enhance your marketing campaigns and your website with the power of video. It really doesn’t matter what your product or service is; the power of video can almost always enhance your promotional efforts. Do this: Start looking at every website you go to with fresh eyes. Does the website include video? What kind? Could you do something similar or better yet, could you produce a video that includes other components? When you start actively studying the video you see on other websites, you’ll discover new and exciting ways to promote yourself and your products. While you don’t want to be a copycat, you can certainly get some basic ideas from these videos. Then produce fresh, exciting videos of your own and you’ll be amazed at the difference!
Enjoy the day!
All the best,
