As the internet continues to grow and evolve, social media sites and video hosting platforms like Youtube have become a major tool for business outreach and advertising campaigns. Video content is highly engaging, as it’s a medium that easily connects people, adding a human element that is not present through text-based content alone.
Video marketing harnesses the power of social media platforms where businesses can advertise their brand, post their content, increase their clientele, and enjoy profits. But you need to make the most of your marketing efforts. For this, you need an experienced team.
From optimizing your Youtube channel with high-quality content to filming a memorable live video to editing video footage, Minifridge Media is the Toronto video production company that can provide you with the insight and talent you need to put your best foot forward using video marketing.
What is Video Marketing?
Video marketing is one part of digital marketing. It’s when you use video for several reasons:
- Raise awareness of your brand, products, and/or services
- Create engagement
- Drive sales
Around 2014, video marketing became a tool for all sizes of businesses to use. Now, promotional videos, such as video ads, explainer videos, and more have come to dominate the marketing sphere, which means you need to bring your A-game if you want to stand out while reaching your target audience.
Video marketing overlaps with social media marketing because most videos will be posted on social media websites, such as Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, Youtube and others. When you post videos across various social media channels, it also improves your ranking on Google. A higher ranking in search engines like Google leads to more exposure and higher sales. A video on a landing page can also have a significant impact on your conversion rate.
That’s why video marketing is so powerful, and so important for your bottom line.
