Internet marketing has been a fad in these recent times. Even the small and medium enterprises are using the power of the worldwide web for easier advertising of their products or services. A wide variety of Internet marketing strategies could be used to promote and increase sales. It includes SEO, email marketing, press releases, and now – video marketing. Yes, you’ve read it right. One of the latest marketing strategies now is video marketing.
Although the other marketing strategies mentioned above are irreplaceable, video marketing is something new – it adds and gives more life to the other marketing strategies ever available online, thus boosts the chance of increasing number of sales. So, how does it really benefit any online businessman?
1) Most of the people prefer to watch than to read. Even if the presentation is quite longer, there are less tendencies for audiences to get bored. Unlike with press release articles alone, video marketing helps the audiences or prospect customers understand the products/services more by incorporating motion picture and audio – so that they would exert less efforts in reading. All they have to do is to watch and listen – almost same with watching a movie.
2) Videos appeal better than mere texts. Perhaps everyone would agree that properly presented video captures the emotions of its viewers. No matter how short the video is, it is believed to be more appealing and convincing compared to tons of texts. Many people get hooked to the big screen version of top movies like Twilight or Harry Potter compared to its soft bound version – well, unless if one has read the novel before seeing the movie. This is because videos readily present to its audiences what is exactly happening – unlike texts that could be monotonous, and requires a great imagination to come to life. Yes, reading could be good, but everyone might not have the luxury of time to do so, as we live in such a fast-paced world. Thus, video marketing is a great relief to both parties – businessmen and consumers.
3) Videos have this on demand characteristic. If viewers desire to watch the video again, they are able to download it and view it anytime they want – or perhaps spread the word themselves. This results in less advertising effort in the part of the businessman. Even if he is asleep, someone is doing the marketing.
Now, video streaming hosts such as YouTube and DailyMotion will surely gain more users from the online business industry. If these streaming hosts have brought to the show business millions of talents, surely they would help bring people to success in their respective online businesses – a few months or years from now.
Video marketing is a sure click for all online business industries because it does not involve high costs and is very much appealing to prospect customers. If you are an online entrepreneur, it is advised to adopt this new marketing strategy with the help of the others strategies you are already using. It will surely boost the number of sales significantly.
