Video marketing as part of your marketing strategy
With video marketing it’s main advantage is that it has the capability to transmit vast portions of information in a short space and time. A simple 1 or 2-minute video can transmit tons of historical & emotional information simply from the imagery that is shown.
Youtube alone has roughly 4 billion views per day and after google, it is the largest search engine.
- 78% of people watch at least one video per week on youtube
- 55% of people watch youtube every day
- 34% of shoppers are more likely to buy a product after viewing an online video
Your customers watch video
Video content will sit gracefully on your site, on Vimeo and YouTube, on your Google+ account, as a link in an email and across all company social media platforms, from Twitter to Facebook to LinkedIn. And this can improve your visibility on search engines. With Videos being immediately shareable this share-ability is a big part of social media and an ideal way to tap into a new audience and to engage with your current audience.
- According to Forbes, 59% of executives would rather watch video than read text.

You can show customers what you do and also to explain any areas that they may be uncertain about.

There’s no sitting coming up with a video marketing plan or content there’s only the user and their experience and, what’s more, relevant to potential customers than the experience a user has had with your business.The best thing about customer-generated content is that it will show other people’s passion for your product. When potential clients see that, they’ll want to know what all the commotion is about and likely give your product a try.
