What can you teach them?
What would they like to learn?
Look at your customer correspondence or comments you get on social media and search out what people want to know about your brand, products, or services, and then create a video to answer them.
Grab your viewers’ attention right away by asking a question, sharing a fun fact, or mentioning an issue your audience can relate to.
You should state your video’s topic immediately and promise some quality content and useful tips to keep your viewers watching your video.
If possible, start with a preview of something you will show later in the video.
Make your marketing video short and sweet. People like to get the message in a minute or less, especially if you are obviously advertising something.
To ensure you get the news to the viewers, make it quick and entertaining so that you are by wasting your time or your viewer’s time.
If you want to create videos of yourself talking to your audience, keep in mind that your appearance and diction are essential.
Take the time to do your hair, pick some nice clothes and apply some makeup.
Ensure the lighting works to your advantage and do not hesitate to do multiple takes if your diction is not perfect.
Make sure you are posting videos on a regular, consistent basis. This requires that you put in the work and actually post numerous videos.
Although your videos shouldn’t be terrible quality, you should not worry so much about the quality that you are neglecting to post any videos at all.
You can’t expect to have resulted in your video marketing campaign without many videos.
Try using others in your videos. This will give people the idea that you are not full of hot air.
While it may be a little challenging to convince someone that the people in your video are indeed fans of you and your products, it comes across better than always doing videos alone.
Use video marketing to get more followers.
This can be accomplished by offering to give away something such as an e-book or an essay for everyone who shares your video with another person and signing up for your newsletter.
E-books and articles are a very cost-efficient way to drive traffic to your website.
Ensure that any videos you produce are well lighted without looking washed out.
Ensure that you use overhead lighting and soft direct lighting to keep shadows from forming on your face.
People will quit watching videos that are poorly lit.
Good lighting is especially important if you are doing a demonstration.
Some of the most effective ways to gain an audience for your videos will be using ads in social media or QR codes to direct people to your videos.
People who see these advertisements will already have the means (and likely the time) to watch the video.
If they like it, they can instantly share the link with a friend, giving your business’s video yet one more exposure!
