Keep reading to find out some great advice that you will take you a long way when it comes to video marketing.
As you make more videos, your skills improve. You need to produce new videos constantly so that you give your customers the content they expect. Posting videos often will allow you to broaden your exposure by talking about new topics.
Consider what others are wanting when they are searching for videos. Most people are looking for something entertaining as well as informative. If you are explaining how to do something, use inflections as you talk and give information that others may not know. It is also beneficial to show how to do something while talking.
If you are not really an expert on a topic, do not try to pretend. The best way to get around that is by interviewing people on video that are experts in your niche. A trade show or seminar is a great place to meet people that won’t mind doing a video.
Do not avoid video marketing because you are shy. If it is hard for you to talk in front of a camera, do as many takes as you need and edit your video. Ask a friend or a colleague to help you by demonstrating products with you or interviewing you.
Product manufacturers or resellers should create videos showing how the product can be used in alternative ways. For example, while duct tape is great for ducts, Duck Tape has created how-tos for a million other projects, even how to create a wallet! This leads to amazing viral video success on their part.
Encourage your viewers to comment on your video and share it with friends. The more buzz your video generates, even if it is slanted negatively, can be very advantageous. Sharing the video helps spread your message to other people with no effort on your part, and people are more likely to view something sent from a friend.
If you want to create videos of yourself talking to your audience, keep in mind that your appearance and diction are important. Take the time to do your hair, pick some nice clothes and apply some makeup. Make sure the lighting works to your advantage and do not hesitate to do multiple takes if your diction is not perfect.
If you have a product that is quite difficult to use, you should create a video that will give step-by-step directions to users. They will appreciate the time you took to explain your products to them. This will make it more likely they will come to you when looking for additional products.
Grab the audience’s attention early in your videos. The key to this is to “pull them in” within the first 10 seconds of a video. You need to do something within this time frame that will leave them in awe and wanting more. Once you have their attention, you must keep them engaged by having interesting and important information in the rest of the video.
Don’t forget that you need to share your video wver you can. Send an email to your friends and relatives. Create a blog post that describes the video on your website. Email or send physical mail to your customers, informing them to spread the word. Add it to Facebook, YouTube or other video outlets. Spread the word to everyone!
