Video provides us with the capacity to correspond with others in a manner that builds trust and a personal association. Moreover when you put a video online it is supposed to be there functioning round the clock for you and it is also economical and simple to do. Basically, video has many attributes to like.
The following is a list of ideas about making video part of your marketing strategy.
?Make sure that you embed your video on your blog because it is or at least it should be the center of your social media advertising so by placing your video there where people can find it and subsequently find out more about you can only be a positive thing.
?Aim to grab the attention of your viewers within the first 15-20 seconds of your video -make sure that you enforce the benefit people will receive as they view your video. It is important to note that if you fail to grab your viewer’s attention within this time they are going to get bored and go elsewhere.
?Always be yourself and don’t try to make yourself out to be someone you’re not. If you are fun and outgoing be fun and outgoing on the video. If you are more reserved and serious then that is how you need to present yourself in front of the camera. Trying to be someone you are not will not gain you the trust of other people – it is not that difficult to tell when someone is faking.
?Write up a rough draft of what it is you plan to say rather than reading straight from a script – you want to sound natural and not robotic. Through drafting up an outline of bullet points you will not stray from what your main point is and you will also come across a more natural speaker.
?Ensure that you create a catchy title, preferably incorporating your main keyword just as you would do in any other form of marketing and at the same time you aim to grab people’s attention. At the very least you should have basic copy writing skills in order to help you to create a catchy heading.
?Maintain eye contact with the camera, in the same way that you would if you were talking to someone face to face. It is a known form of body language that not maintaining eye contact makes you appear to be untrusting. Of course this is something that will require a degree of practise but you will find that over time you will become more confident and therefore better at it.
?At the end of your video, make sure that you have a clear call to action this means that you tell your viewers what action you would like them to take once the video is finished. You might ask them to leave a comment or feedback or you may want them to join your opt-in list to receive a freebie.
?When you edit your video make sure you have means of contacting you as the final credit. This is easy to do with any editing programme you choose but it is extremely important.
?Obtain a microphone, they are usually not that expensive and improve your audio. If you have one, you could easily start out with your webcam; just make sure you have a nice professional background and light yourself well.
?Market your video and upload it to YouTube first. If you really want to go that bit further you can use Traffic Geyser which is a paid programme but it will upload your videos to more than forty video hosting sites. You could alternatively choose to use a service called TubeMogul which is free but this uploads to less sites, about 12-15. Whichever way you choose, make sure you get yourself out there.
