Social Media Marketing And Video Marketing Go Hand In Hand

Have you thought about investing in a video marketing campaign for your business, but aren’t sure where to start? No one can become an expert on video marketing without a little bit of trial and error. There are many things to consider, and sometimes a little outside help is needed! The tips below can assist you as you consider marketing your business through video.

Video Marketing If you’re thinking of making a video for marketing, make sure it’s kept short and gets to the point quickly. People have busy lives and will tune out if you make your videos too long and tedious. Give them the information quickly. If you need a long video, think about spreading it over several shorter chapter style installments. An ideal video length is said to be 2 minutes in length. You can go beyond 2 minutes but do so sparingly.

To help people notice your videos you should develop a title that is eye catching and memorable . Use a play on words or a rhyme to help people remember the name of your video. You should also use your primary keyword and if possible at least one or two associated keywords.

Try using others in your videos. This will give people the idea that you are not full of hot air. While it may be a little difficult to convince someone that the people in your video are truly fans of you and your products, it comes across better than always doing videos alone.

Always request something of your loyal viewers when publishing a video online. “Call to action” is what this is usually called. If you have a newsletter and you want people to receive it, ask them to opt-in to the mailing list discussed in your video. For this to work, you must make it easy for your viewers.

Analyzing your video content is essential if you want to make the most of your hard work. You’ll learn about who’s watching your videos and where they come from. This information can help you find other ways to attract viewers.

Script “goodbyes” and “hellos” for videos. You should introduce yourself and your business. At the end, go over your company’s name again with any call to action you have to get your viewer to your website or to where they can buy the product.

Videos are a great way to promote everything you run online, from your storefront to your social media accounts. If someone happens to stumble across your YouTube channel, it would be in your best interest to direct them to your Facebook and Twitter pages. Cross-promote all of your sites to achieve maximum web traffic. When you link your video to your social media profiles, that can truly increase traffic and sales.

If you are making a video about a new product, keep it simple and short. Not a single viewer is going to sit through a 10 or 15 minute video about your latest product. If they want more information, have your contact information listed and give them a one-on-one demonstration. For your videos, keep it short and to the point.

When using video marketing keep in mind that content is the key. Using content that is untrue or meant to mislead your viewers can be damaging to your business. Always make sure that your videos are accurate and informational. Providing a good source of information will keep people coming back.

Here’s one of my more recent videos (I do break the 2 minute rule – it goes for 3 min & 14 secs); I’m not a polished ‘video’ presenter but you’ve got to start somewhere! I have other videos even less polished with nearly 2000 views. Here’s one where I talk about a product and service that I use, am a reseller for, and a “VIP” member plus I’m in ‘100%’ as an purchaser of the Online Marketing Masters Workshop (which I also receive commissions from when someone purchases it). Anywhere, here’s the video that I host on vzaar.com:

Hopefully these tips have given you some ideas and guidance that you needed. You may need to try several different strategies before you find the perfect one for your company, but diligence in trying will pay off! Use the advice from this article to help as you dive into the world of video marketing.
