When adding video into you content marketing mix, there are a few facts you should be aware of. These will blow your mind because you’ll see after reading this that video is a super powerful way to market your business and all you need do, is get started.

Shorter Videos Work Better For Video Marketing

Keeping your video to two minutes or less is important because they are more likely to be watched all the way to the end. Wisita.com did a study on this and tested videos that are 30 to 90 seconds long and monitored the stickiness of each. They found that keeping your videos under two minutes was better for viewers.

Don’t Be Like a Talk Show

You know how you’ll get teasers all through a show about the main storyline, which ends up coming up at the very last five minutes of the show. They do this so that you watch the whole show. People who watch videos don’t like that, and will click away. In contrast, if you put the important info right up front they’ll be more likely to watch it to the end.

Keep All Your Videos Relevant

The best way to accomplish this is to really get to know who your audience is and make all your videos for that audience. If you are in the editing process, cut out things that get off topic, ramble or make no sense to the title or your audience.

Don’t Act Like a Robot

You are a normal person and if it’s your voice and your face on the videos, so be yourself. You’re not a robot or  a motion picture movie star. You are going to make mistakes, pronounce things strangely, or you’re going to make a face you don’t like. It’s all good because people want you to be you and not someone else.

Decision Makers Like Video

According to Forbes.com, 39% of executives report contacting vendors after watching videos about the products they’re interested in. This is really telling because that means you want to make more videos for the decision makers in your niche.

Landing Pages

If you include a video on a landing page, that page will convert at a much higher rate than one without a video. According to Unbounce.com the conversion increases by 80 percent.

A Picture Is Worth…

You’ve heard the saying that a picture is worth 1000 words. Dr. James McQuivey of Forrester Research states that a minute long video is worth 1.8 million words. If that’s true, then you need to add video to your marketing mix now.

Sad Facts or Major Opportunity

Most businesses aren’t even using video to market to their consumers. This means that the field is wide open for you to get started and to build a massive following. Start using video to promote your business through all the different types of network.

Video marketing is an awesome way to get the word out about your business. If you want to start video marketing, a good place to begin is YouTube. You can repurpose some of the content that you already have to test out on YouTube, but be sure not to stay with only YouTube, videos should be shared on multiple platforms for the best results. Video marketing isn’t hard, the hardest part is simply in getting started.

At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.
