Steve Olenski at Forbes states in his recent article Using Video In Marketing: Why Wouldn't You?
- 70% of marketing professionals report that video converts better than any other medium.
- The average internet user spends 88% more time on a website with video than without.
- 64% of consumers are more likely to buy a product after watching a video about it.
- Using the word “Video” in an email subject line boosts open rates by 19%, click-through rates by 65%, and reduces unsubscribe rates by 26%.
- 69% of smartphone users say videos are a perfect solution for smartphone viewing as it offers a quick way for consumers to grasp an overview of a product.
What was going through your head as you read those stats? Something like...
"Wow! I had no idea! Man... I've got to do more with video!"
"But what types of things should I cover?"
Bubba Page at Inc. Magazine discusses the benefits of using video in his insightful piece which outlines the Top 6 reasons Why You Would Want To Include Video In Your Marketing Tactics.
1. Show off your company culture.
2. Tease with previews of a brand-new product.
3. Finally shed light on a complicated process.
4. Capture your best customers singing your praises.
5. Answer questions received via social media.
6. Update consumers on the latest news in your industry and what it means for them.
You may be thinking "I don't have the time to commit to this." or "It will be too expensive."
But the fact of the matter is, that it takes less time than you think (pop out your smartphone and invest in a $19 tripod and $30 in a mic and you are all set) to shoot a fast "how to" or answer a question type of video. Shoot to keep things under three minutes. Think through the points you want to make and get to them as quickly and succinctly as possible.
Or...if you are looking to have an informational video put together for you, you can have a professional piece made for under $500.
Here is an example of a Whiteboard video that we recently produced which outlines the services we offer at CommonSenseHealth.org.
It's just over a minute long, very simple, direct and to the point. It will be placed above a call to action (or CTA) which will encourage prospective clients to fill out a contact form in order to schedule an initial consultation call.
By adding video to your web page, social media platforms and out to your prospective client list, via email, you will help to increase awareness, educate the public and build interest and trust amongst your current and prospective clients.
