So, what are the benefits?
One big reason to consider video-marketing as an integral part of your digital strategy is search engine optimization. Search results with videos tend to propel your site to the top, if done correctly. Strong organic search results give you an edge over your competitors.
Explore the avenues
Video sites such as YouTube are huge. Second only to Google, YouTube has the next largest audience of people searching for answers to their queries. Video marketing opens up the gates allowing you to interact with this large number of people if you manage to execute your strategy with poise.
Make sure your video is available on video sharing platforms and frequently post videos. Add those videos to your website and uplink them wherever necessary.
Through a video, you can make your audience see, hear and feel. Capitalizing on the engagement factor, you can use videos to demonstrate your products and services, highlighting added benefits to excite them. Include illustrations and excerpts to break the content into interesting bites of information.
Through comments on your videos you get a chance to interact with your consumers and understand their concerns. This gives you a chance to figure out what’s working and what isn’t.
Uplink and promote
With features similar to YouTube’s annotation feature, you can create direct links within your video window. You can redirect the visitors to your company website or social media pages thereby converting visitors into potential customers or clients with ease.
Once your video is uploaded you can embed it into your blog and promote it aggressively on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest, Google Plus, your email newsletter, your podcast, and just about any other digital channel you wish to explore.
Brand the opportunity
