If you don't think your business can benefit from the use of Video Marketing, and more particularly, YouTube videos, then you need to think again!
We have been "preaching" for some time about how important video is to engage more customers, clients, make more sales and generally inform your audience about your services and products.
YouTube has just recently released more statistics about their service this month, and these numbers just can't be ignored. Here are a few of the biggest stats that can be applied to businesses that were released at YouTube's Annual Brandcast event on May 5th.
If you think those numbers don't matter, or that your business can't get a piece of that pie, then go ahead and sit back and watch your competition that takes advantage of YouTube surpass you!
These numbers also help prove that people want to WATCH the internet, not read it. There are some estimates that 1/3 of all online activity is now watching video.
Is your company at the top of the food chain for your field of expertise? If it is, or if it isn't, video is a great way to help increase sales, which is what every company's goal is. Do you know that a one-minute video is the equivalent of 1.8 million words of text. You need to stop and ask yourself how long would it take for you or your staff to create 1.8 million words of content?
Skyler Mills wrote an article on Grand Rapids Business Journal about he and a friend made a video and the resluts they had:
Those results are fantastic. And imagine how much reach and influence your business could have if asked by another if they could use it. It's also important to note that Skylar says for you to consider creating videos and the impact they can have, even with minimal video resources. Are we suggesting that you just create a spammy video with a couple of still pictures and no voice over? No. You will have to put some effort into the project. The important take away here is that even if your video isn't a Hollywood production, it can still ad value to your company.
At Social Triggers they also have a post that gives some reasons that video is so much better than text:
So there you have it - if you still think you don't need to be marketing with video and YouTube, then get passed over by potential clients and customers that go to your competition that does use video.
