Local Business Marketing Strategy – Video Marketing – Why Video Marketing Will Build Your Business
Do you watch television? Most people do, and have been for over 50 years. There’s something about watching things happen that resonates with people, and that’s no different in business. Over 80 million people watched some kind of online video, but even more significant for business owners is this:
According to Forrester Research, you are 53 times more likely to appear on Google’s first page search results if you have video on your site. Why could this be?
When you use a video, people can see your face. Sounds simple, but this instills trust in customers, particularly those who like to know who they are doing business with. A smile and a pleasant voice put a face to the name. You become a person, instead of just a lot of words.
If you’re not comfortable in front of a camera, that’s alright. You can still put together a nice piece of video with a voiceover showcasing any facet of your business that might appeal to clients and customers.
What can you use video for?
• To show how you make your product
• To teach
• To provide a standard greeting
• For humor
Use your creativity to come up with other ways to use videos. Better yet, build loyalty between you and your customers by asking what they would like to see from you and giving them what they ask for. Putting together a video allows you to use different skills other than marketing skills, so you can expand your skill set while you expand your business.
Television has made video marketing comfortable for consumers, and your personal spin can increase profits. Creating a video will have a positive effect on your website and your business, if you let it.
