Posted by seo_writer_kvn as Video Marketing
Whether or not you believe this is the Attention-Deficit generation, there’s nothing more attention grabbing than video. It moves! It makes sounds! At the very least, it’s difficult to ignore. As a society, we’re in love with moving pictures, and websites like YouTube can attest to that ongoing romance. Videos have the capacity to convey a wealth of information in a brief, irresistible way: if they’re well produced, engaging, or even funny, so much the better. Search engines are starting to recognize video as something that people are after. Want First Page Placement? Maybe you should give video a try.
Most of us can, off the top of our heads, name at least a handful of companies who have achieved brand recognition through viral video. Commercials that don’t even feel like you’re being advertised to, or at least campaigns that are engaging enough that you don’t mind that the product is part of the punch line. That kind of presence is priceless in the “wired” era: online video consumption continues to expand, and it’s worth taking advantage of.
Video is becoming a larger and larger part of making sure you’re found. Website SEO is obviously important, and if search engines are taking video presence into account, it’s worth taking advantage of. This kind of Internet marketing turned the Old Spice guy from an out-of-work actor into an instantly recognizable icon; with more people consuming their “television” through their computers, you can bet that the YouTube videos were just as, if not more, effective than the actual television commercials.
The goals of advertising are pretty simple, even if the solutions aren’t; grab the attention of your customers, and hold onto it. Video advertising is an efficient, interactive way to make that happen, and many websites are already utilizing video as a tool. With a short, effective piece, you can grab the attention of countless Internet consumers. It seems beyond unlikely that the appetite for Internet videos will wane anytime soon, after all: so why not take advantage of it?
