The Hot Video Marketing Trend

video marketingVideo marketing simply may be the hottest trend to date in the marketing field. The time for telling through text marketing copy has passed. Instead, it’s now time for showing and telling through video.

If you’re not that familiar with video marketing, don’t worry. The internet provides a lot of resources on how you can make your videos. You can find out about the tools that you need to make videos and the techniques that can make your videos work for marketing purposes. The following are some tips on how you can make video marketing work for your service.

1. Figure out where to publish your videos.

You have to understand where you are going to publish your video marketing output. Of course, you should seriously consider posting your videos on your blog, or on video sites like YouTube.

2. Determine the video content.

As a general guideline, your videos must contain information that will create more interest in your business’s services and products. The specific and actual content will have to vary, depending on what you are trying to show.

Videos on your website can be either product- or service- oriented. Your videos in your site can also be video testimonials from your clients, which helps build credibility.

Videos published on blog sites should be more about updates, news and special promos. They should simply notify your audiences about the current news and induce your audience to click the link to your website for more details.

For video websites like YouTube, your video ought to be less product-or service-oriented, and more imaginative and amusing. Your site link can be supplied with the video and your items can be included in them, but your videos should not be merely a simple sales pitch.

3. Recognize your audience.

Throughout the process, you need to keep your audience in mind. What age are your desired consumers? Who are they and where do they originate from? The material and tone of your video marketing efforts will greatly depend upon the demographics of your desired recipients.

After you have done all of the abovementioned steps, all you will need to do is to make your videos and post them online.

Of course, you may have to engage the services of a video professional for your purposes.

By searching the web, you can find out about the tools that you need to make videos and the techniques that can make your videos work for marketing.

As we mentioned, your videos do not need to necessarily be product- or service-specific. They can also be video reviews obtained from your customers. These videos speak to the overall ability of your company in terms of its products and services and how you treat your customers.

Many companies find that they simply do not have the time to gain the knowledge and experience in video marketing to take it on internally.

That’s where we come in. After 37 years of experience in video marketing, we can guide you in the planning and creation of videos that will gain maximum customer traction for your budget.
