Why your marketing campaign needs video


    Why your marketing campaign needs video

    We can’t emphasise enough the importance of video in your marketing campaign. So much so that we’ve already talked about why video is better than text in a previous blog post (have a look at The hidden power of video to find out more) where we pointed out that our brains process video faster than text – 60,000 times faster in fact. It’s not just about facts and figures – there are other, less measurable reasons for setting aside some of your marketing budget for videos.

    They let people put a face to the name

    Video ads can really set you apart from all the other static ads on the internet. They give your customers a chance to get to know you, your people and your business. And to feel comfortable with you. That’s something that’s equally important for small, local businesses as well as large, potentially ‘faceless’ corporations.

    They help customers see the real value of your product

    People are much more likely to buy a product after they’ve seen a video showing them how they could use it, or how it could make their life just that little bit easier. They’ll gain a much better understanding of what it could do for them if they can see it in action, rather than from just reading a list of benefits. You can also keep track of how many people are watching the video – an indication of all the potential sales that could be out there.

    Boost your search results

    (Okay, so this one is about numbers.) According to the Forrester Research Group, ‘video is 53 times more likely than text pages to appear on the first page of a search engine’. That’s because part of the algorithm Google uses for search rankings looks at how long people spend on your website. So if they’re watching a video about your newest product, chances are they’re going to stay longer than if they’re just looking at a couple of pictures of it.

    Imagen, our video management software, can help you build your own branded website to display these types of videos (or any others you’d like to get out into the virtual world).
