How Online Videos Can Boost Your Site’s Visibility, Popularity, And Profits

Sometimes the same old same old doesn’t work. Nowhere is this more true than in the constantly evolving industry of online marketing. If online success is not pounding down your door, it might be time to shake things up a bit. It’s time to consider adding videos to your site. There are few site features more alluring than the video.

The online marketing field is littered with spammers and relatively worthless sites. There are also a lot of sites that are trying to capture the same visitors as you. What can you do to ensure that your site is the star of the show? By adding video to your site, you can pull ahead of your competition. When visitors see a video on your site, they are more likely to stick around and watch it. It doesn’t require the time commitment or effort that text does. It can also give your site some legitimacy among a public that is growing tired of spammy sites. Spammers typically do not take the time to create an informative video. Also, it is difficult to lie about a product’s capabilities when the visitor can see it in action on their screen. Visibility and credibility are only two of the many benefits of adding a video to your online site.

Occasionally your site will receive visitors who are already interested enough in your product, service, or site in general to read pages of text. Your average person, however, is less motivated. Most people will hop off a text-heavy page faster than they hopped on. A video is ideal at presenting this information before a visitor’s attention span runs out. By demonstrating a product, summarizing the site, or giving a quick, but thorough overview of your service, you will hopefully pass on enough information to keep the visitor on your site or make a new customer.

Visitors will not subscribe to your site or spend money on your products if they do not feel connected to you in some way. Establishing a sense of belonging is easier with a video. The awareness that you are, indeed, a real person makes the people more comfortable with you.

People are more likely to buy from a company whose name they trust. A video can stand behind your product by revealing the product in action. After all, seeing is believing. You can even take the concept of connecting to customers one step further by incorporating interactive videos into your site. Trust and loyalty are keys to repeat customers, the lifeblood of most businesses. With videos, these important marketing goals can be achieved.

You are standing at the cusp of a huge growth in online videos. They will only become more magnificent and effective as technology advances. The scope is magnificent. Your competitors know this, and many of them are riding the video trend. The time to start producing is now.
