How to Start Using Video in Your Digital Marketing
The use of video for business marketing is steadily growing, especially thanks to live-streaming features on social networks. It’s possible to capitalize on this trend and make it work for your business, but knowing where to start and how to use the technology effectively might seem like a puzzle to you, especially if you’re short on time and resources.
Below, we illustrate ways to incorporate video with your existing business model.
- Add video to your blog. If you’ve taken advantage of the live-streaming feature on Facebook, you know that video continues to live on your Facebook page (unlike Periscope, where the
video disappears). This allows you to embed the video in a blog post, which helps you to not only cross-promote, but also increases the amount of time a reader will spend on your blog. Because video is a dynamic medium, there’s a greater chance that your viewer will visit other blog posts and browse your site longer.
- Create an introduction video. Your “about me” page is well-suited to hosting a short video. Customers visit the “about” page to learn and connect, so create a short video that introduces yourself to the viewer and shares fun facts and real-life snippets. When a customer feels a personal connection with you, they’re more likely to convert. An “about me” video is an easy way to build a relationship with your customer, and also increases the amount of time a user will spend on your site.
- Show your happy customers. Video testimonials are a great way to reach untapped audiences. By featuring satisfied customers, you show real-life examples of your product and offer a personal experience (other than your own!). In addition to featuring testimonial videos on your site, ask the customers featured in the video to post the video on their own social networks. There is a strong likelihood that their friends will watch, which opens your business up to a new audience and potential clients.
Our research shows that video and audio recordings appeal most to millennials in major cities. They prefer to watch and listen to your content rather than read it. They are heavy users of mass transit and have the ear-buds with them at all times. Today it is about adapting your message delivery to your buyer persona and also adapting that delivery mechanism to the delivery vehicle that best serves them.
