Using Videos To Boost Your Ranking
Video is NOT going away! Video is only getting better and today it is being used in expressive and creative ways to market businesses. All businesses large or small, can benefit with using Video in their website to boost traffic and promote sales because Video creates excitement and action!
HOME PAGE: YOUR COMPANY VIDEO
When a visitor comes to your website, they are not looking to get hit with a sales pitch. If they feel they are being "sold" something, they will likely leave your site without looking further. It would be much better to have an informational video on what your business is. Information on your company, like the core values of your company. What products your company has to offer. What services your company provides. If your video is more "informative" instead of trying to "sell" them on your products, they are more easily influenced and interested in listening about your company and see something they like.
The best salesperson is a happy customer. You may have more knowledge and know what message you want your business to reflect, but you would never be as convincing as someone who has had an actual "good" experience with your business. Having Video testimonials will work for you 24/7. Visitors to your website can see, hear and they "trust" the opinion from someone who has actually used your service or bought your products.
OPTIMIZE YOUR VIDEO CONTENT
This means by having the proper tags, descriptions and content for SEO (Search Engine Optimization). You webpage will be more likely hit the front page of Google especially since Video competition is far less fierce in almost all categories. Video is the way to increase your websites traffic by getting you a better Google ranking.
It is worth every penny to have your main Video professionally produced. While it's okay to have low-budget, self-made videos on blogs or YouTube, for your business website, it needs to be professional for your visitors to take you seriously. You have a wonderful opportunity to make a lasting impression. You want your potential customers to think highly of your company.
