Why Video Marketing Makes Sense

Video marketing is one of the newest trends in the mix of marketing channels. Since 2007, the number of hours of video that are uploaded every minute has jumped from 8 hours to 48 hours (see the figure on the right). So why all the excitement about video?

1 word ­— YouTube: A video sharing service that allows users to watch videos posted by other users and upload videos of their own. The slogan of the YouTube website is “Broadcast Yourself.” 

Generally speaking, text articles don’t provide the same urgency as videos do. Videos offer a better, quality experience to the end user. In fact, once your videos start to create this urgency with end users, your videos will start becoming popular and end users will begin subscribing to your video channel so they don’t miss one.

Videos are one of the best ways to educate your customers on your products and services. It engages their senses, as well as utilizes technology that they already incorporate into their daily lives. Keep in mind that people are more likely to interact with your video if it is shorter - shorter sells.

  2. Videos on demand - people can download your videos anytime and view them from anywhere (well almost anywhere!)

  6. Video marketing is a great way to educate or inform people. Many enjoy watching videos because they know that they really can learn something from these videos. Through these videos, you can give your customers advice regarding a certain aspect of their life. Promoting products and services will also be made easier by means of tutorial or other efficient strategies. They would love you for providing them with information, and this will help you to gain their trust, and to cement your company’s integrity as well.
