What is a Promotional Video?
5 reasons why businesses should have a promotional video.
1. Convey the information
Naturally, we are drawn to moving images - this gives video the upper hand over text and pictures. Studies have shown that people get bored while reading anything. To facilitate the audience, there is a dire need to use visuals so that they can retain their attention until the end. It can cause you to convey the information professionally as well as to keep them hooked.
You can interact with the audience by speaking their language and hitting their pain points. Once the audience starts feeling you know their hard feeling, they expect you to give the particular solution to overcome those fears they are carrying. That happens with the promotional videos.
2. Brand awareness
If you’re a marketer or businessman you already know that the importance of brand awareness.
Footage promoting your brand and raising awareness of what you offer can work wonders for your business. When brand colours and logos are integrated well throughout, they can have a lasting impact on the audience, making your brand more memorable. Used alongside an effective call to action, video can greatly increase goal completions for your business, such as bringing in new customers and enquiries.
When skillfully made, promotional videos create a level of trust with potential customers that is hard to generate through words alone. Whilst conveying your brand, you can also incorporate the personality of the business – giving people a feel for what you represent, along with the products or services you offer.
3. Videos are versatile
Brands and businesses can use promo videos in varied instances.
Adding promo videos to relevant landing pages, blogs, emails, and social media advertisements can increase engagement and conversion rates. Hence, creating top-quality promo videos for brands can be helpful in everything, starting from sales pitches to newsletters.
4. Google loves videos
In today’s busy online environment, search engine optimisation is often vital to further the success of your business.
Videos allow you to increase the time spent by visitors on your site. Thus, longer exposure builds trust and signals search engines that your site has good content. The report states that site visitors are 80% more likely to purchase a product or service after watching a related video – if people can visualise a product/service in action, it makes them believe in it, and want it.
5. Videos are the future
One of the most genuine reasons why promo-videos are a must for your business is because they are the future. Studies have predicted that videos will comprise 4/5th of the entire web traffic in the world, which is around 80%.
This is an enormous figure showing that you cannot miss out on the benefits of incorporating promo videos in your business marketing plan.
