How To Successfully Use Video Marketing:


You’ve weighed the pros and the cons of video marketing and the pros have outweighed the cons by a long shot. How do you implement video marketing properly to confirm you can successfully increase traffic to your website and customers? Well, for starters prepare to create a video strategy to ensure everything in the video caters to your target audience. From your mission statement to your closing- be sure your target audience understands what your brand represents for them. You’ll also need a strategy to plan how to ensure your video stands out and has the best quality from the sound to the message.

Decide if interviews, instructional videos, or promotional videos work best for your brand. Despite the high engagement videos can provide, if you choose to incorporate a random video on your website- it could defeat the purpose of the video. Remember that no matter what, your focus is to cater to your target audience. Also, videos are known to heightened emotional connection between the customer and your brand- use that to your advantage! Personalize your videos in a humorous or emotional tone. Make it short and sweet to make a lasting impression on the customer.

Go with the method that works for your brand, which may be more of an instructional video. Regardless of the type of video, don’t forget to WOW the viewers, while remaining sensitive to your target audience’s needs. Your goal is to keep the watch time high so that viewers are more inclined to share it with their friends and colleagues. Unlike some of the other marketing techniques out there, you are in control of how you incorporate video marketing into your website, so make the best of it!

  1. Hi. You’re absolutely right – video marketing is a must nowadays.
    Cold you, please, elaborate on how to actually go about it? For example, you mention it is not cheap. But exactly how much does it cost to start? What equipment would I need? Do I have to actually appear in my videos or can I make sreenshots and comment on them, for example? Can I use other people’s videos on my website?
    Thanks

    1. Well to answer your questions Zbigniew, it’s free to start recording videos and to also use YouTube. You don’t need any special recording equipment either. You just need a good HD recording camera. Some Androids and IPhones are already built with it already installed. 

      You don’t have to appear in your videos. For example, you could create a screen recording, recording just your computer screen. I find this way the easiest for me. You could also create a video of pictures and sound. You could be the sound talking in the backround, while pictures playing photos. You can also use other people’s videos. You just need their permission. I sure hope this helps!!
