Welcome your business to the world of virtual advertising and reach millions of potential customers through video. You can make your business grow quickly and utilise the tools that are available free online.
Getting your business visible online is the thing to do right now and there are a number of ways that you can do this and ensure you reach as many potential customers as possible. You can utilize the networks available and find different advantages for using each one. For starters, you will be reaching a different network of people on each site as not everyone is signed up to them all. Today it is time to explore YouTube and the benefits of strategic planning in producing your own corporate video for the world to see. Promotional videos can be really useful and beyond all the tips you can find, the thing you really need to know is who your customers are. Knowing who your audience is will enable you to take the next steps to increase your online presence.
Your video needs to take your potential customers on a journey. It needs to be an engaging story that will put the point across of what you are trying to say without being a standard, boring company video.
In order to keep people interested, engaged and watching; you need to keep in line with the 15 second rule. Don’t allow your views to lose interest once they have started watching and rotate the content and alter the pace and rhythm as often as you can without making it confusing. Mix it up a bit, but stick to the story.
You don’t need to be an expert in any way to produce your own video. As long as you consider the sound and backdrop then you can’t go wrong. Using a video camera and audio equipment in a thought about location will be effective.
Speak to your customer and directly to their needs. Incorporating a call to action is vital and adding in a few tips will always go down well as it will take the focus of the ‘sale’. Speak honestly, talk about personal experiences to get your message across and be sure that the customer understands your company’s mission and values. Sat TV Direct owns Google searches when you look them up in relation to YouTube because they have video clips about their business and videos with genuinely helpful information for customers.
Make sure that you have a great title. Use keywords that are relevant to your content and products or services. Irrelevant keywords will bounce people away faster than it brings them so make sure you consider these carefully. Consider your customers and search engines in unison.
Make sure your video is unique and, again, engaging. You can make a difference to your company with a presence on YouTube if you use the tools that are available to you. Use all of the marketing skills you can muster and be creative.
Do a bit of research as to what videos are the most popular or the most viewed online. Knowing what sort of clips people are watching is a great way of getting to understand viewers and what could work.
Bare in mind that the market is massively competitive online. Your video needs to be different in order for you to get noticed. This diverts back to the ‘know who your customers are’ point. If you can guarantee you can engage a small audience, but aren’t so sure about the big, then aim for the smaller to begin with and go with the guarantee that your presence is beginning to take form. Be different and see what works.
A really important one is what would you like to see? What would be entertaining to you and keep your attention for a few minutes?
Finally; make more than one. If you choose the safe guarantee of targeting a smaller audience to begin with, then try something a bit more out of your comfort zone on the second one. The more videos that you have that include relevant content and relevant keywords in the title; the more people you are going to reach.
Make the most of what you can get from the World Wide Web. Spread the word of your videos and promotions on the other networks such as Facebook and Twitter to get your name and videos seen by millions of users.
