While the Internet started as nothing more than text on a page, it has developed into a rich media wonderland. Implementing a video marketing campaign for your company is the standard today, so learning what it takes to do it right is necessary to leverage its advantages. Continue reading to find the steps you need to take to get started.
Your first consideration is how you will create and then edit your videos. Draft a plan for what your goals are, and then research the tools you’ll need to reach them. Include a camera, tripod, script, casting, and the software necessary.
Where will you host your videos? You can stream them from your website, but server hosting costs can skyrocket. YouTube is another option, but remember that your video will be viewable outside of your website, so include a link back to your site in the description.
Consider using video on your product pages. This can be an installation how-to, a demonstration of how the product works or shots of customers who love it. If your customers can see the item in use, they’ll be more likely to buy it.
Blogging is great, and a vlog puts your customers into a more intimate situation with the poster. This is a great way for the owner of a company to show their customers who they are and what they stand for without having to even leave their office. Posting a vlog once a week will keep your customers in a relationship with yourself and your company.
Viral videos, those which get shared across the Internet, are a golden egg. If you can figure out what it takes to get people excited about your content, you won’t even have to promote it yourself! Think about what you share with your friends currently and duplicate it.
The most important aspect of your video will be including a call to action which your viewers act upon. Should it be scripted? Should you show text? Take all ideas into consideration as you choose how to instruct the people watching to buy, buy, buy!
Creating your first video is great, but don’t stop there. Continue creating new videos so that your customers return to your website to see what’s new. Just like blog posts or articles, fresh videos will entice your customers to visit, watch, and shop.
These tips will be able to aid you through the process of planning, creating and posting your video publicly. Put them to use and start planning your video today so you can increase profits tomorrow!
