Video Content Marketing

 

You can have the best video out there but if no one sees it or the right people don’t see it, it doesn’t matter, right? So what CAN you do to make sure your video is viewed by the right audience? Video SEO.

Search engines can’t read images so when you upload a video to a site like Youtube without optimizing it with things like keywords, transcripts, etc., you are seriously limiting the amount of exposure your video will get and lessening the chances of your target market seeing your video.

Facts and Quotes:

  • A quality video is an impressive way to describe your product or service and is more effective in appealing to the public than other forms of advertising.
  • Video is memorable, convincing, affordable and structured to get specific action.
  • Engaging and valuable video can differentiate you from your competitors
  • Google Universal Search Engine blends text, images and video on first page results.

  4. Hello Shahid. Before you can decide what TYPE of video you want to use, you need to know what your goal is. I took a quick look at your website and see that you offer many very helpful tips. I would suggest that you record some screen cast videos of some of your blog posts such as:How to Remove Facebook Timeline (http://www.techbloghub.com/how-to-remove-facebook-timeline.html) – if you record a screencast How-to video you will helping those who are visual learners and prefer to watch a video than read text and look at images.

  7. Hi Richard, the more creative and engaging the video, the more it will effective it will be. You need to try to grab someone’s attention so that they stay long enough to “hear” your message :)

  8. Richard says:

    Video marketing is something that I would like to consider in my marketing campaign. Unfortunately, creating videos that will actually convert is difficult. I’ve seen a lot ended up just doing some presentations and having it recorded. And that is not good enough I guess.

  9. Caleb says:

    I use video marketing for my YouTube videos I do for sure, who wouldn’t? In my opinion it is very easy to do by including the keyword in the title, description, within the text in the video since Google can now read that, and backlinking to the video by social bookmarking, blog comments, forum profiles, .edu links using wiki type sites, and a few other things.
