Video Marketing for Small Business

It’s no secret that video posts generate higher engagement on social media. In fact, over 60% of small businesses have added video marketing to their social media marketing strategies. So what’s new?

Over the last few years, brands have been steadily adopting video marketing strategies into their overall communications. In 2013, marketers predicted that video content would account for 50% of all internet traffic. It’s now 2017, and guess what? Video content now accounts for 80% of all internet traffic! The point is, if you’re a small business owner and your current marketing plan doesn’t include video content, you’re missing out. Big time.

 

Videos are social engagement magnets.

A Facebook video receives, on average, 135% more organic reach than a Facebook photo. Videos are also 6x more likely to be retweeted (Twitter) than a photo. Thanks to industry research like this, we can begin to see a trend in what kind of content elicits a response from your audience.

Most of the content that we see on social media is text-based. So, when someone finally sees a video on their feed they can’t help but focus their attention on it. From there, you just have to keep them interested.

Social media is much more cost-efficient than traditional forms of advertising such as; the local newspaper, magazines, radio, and especially TV. The cost of creating a video will depend, but getting your video to reach potential customers is free. If you want to spend a little on promoting your post to reach more people, you can do that as well. There are so many options that allow you customize your ads that overspending is virtually impossible.

Builds trust and improves brand image.

75% of users have visited a company’s website after watching one of their videos on social media. Videos are also easier to remember. In fact, 80% of users can recall a video ad they saw 30 days ago. 90% say that videos helped them in making purchase decisions.

Your brand is your personality. As a consumer, they will have a much easier time making a connection with that brand’s personality if they can see you, hear you, and understand you. As we mentioned before, roughly 2/3 of small business owners are using video marketing in their social media strategies. As a consumer, I’m going to view the brand that has put more effort into earning my attention as more credible.

Increases your SEO rankings.

Google loves video. You’re actually 53 times more likely to show up first on search results if your company website has a video embedded on the landing page! The reason for this is largely because consumers will spend more time on a page with video on it. By watching the video, they are staying on that page. This tells Google that the content is valuable and is a good place to send others searching for similar things. Since Google owns YouTube, the benefit of having a YouTube channel for your business is large.

To make sure Google picks up your company’s video on its radar is optimize your video title, tags, and description to match appropriate keywords that people might be using to find your video. Uploading your video to multiple channels will increase your ranking, as will having it shared by your followers. Higher engagement tells Google that others found your content useful. As a result, Google will rank your brand name higher than those with little engagement. By investing in video marketing that you are actually investing in SEO as well.

Easy to Digest.

Reading a product description or filling out a form can be highly tasking. It’s easier for a consumer to simply watch and listen to a video for 30-90 seconds before making a decision.

This decision will depend on your video’s purpose and what action you want your viewers to take. Your consumers want to see your product or service in a real life situation. Something that they can relate to. Videos leave less to the imagination than photo ads and thus, are less confusing and easier to digest. This is why most people can recall video ads over a print ad.

Conclusion

Video marketing is one of the best ways for small businesses to separate themselves from the competition. With some practice and a little bit of help, your next successful video could go viral in your local community!

    В настоящее время стало очень популярным курить кальяны. Это ему объяснение. Во-первых, кальян помогает снимать стресс. Во-вторых, люди, которые отказались от обычных сигарет или находятся в процессе отказа, используют кальян в качестве замены вредной привычки.
    Приобрести кальян, аксессуары, табак для кальяна дешево можно в специализированном магазине. Продавцы консультанты всегда помогут подобрать лучший вариант. Но не все специалисты смогут ответить на главные вопросы курильщика: «Какие виды кальяна бывают?», «Сколько можно курить по времени?», «Почему иногда болит голова от кальяна?» и так далее. Всё это будет описано ниже в статье.
    Какие бывают кальяны
    В определенных барах персонал обычно начинают свой разговор с фразы: «Какой табак для кальяна вы бы хотели выбрать?». Но никогда не спрашивают какой кальян человек хотел бы покурить. Многие курильщики считают, что самое важное в таком процессе только лишь табак. Сами же кальяны обычно различают только по цвету и остальным внешним признакам. Курение могут испортить и другие факторы.
