Create the need on why they should avail of your services or product

When business owners put up videos online, the uploaded videos are about services they offer and why potential customers should pick them amongst other competitors. A better and more convincing approach to this situation would be to help out and educate your potential clients. Create the need on why they should avail of your services or product, create value and always end your video with a call to action whether it’s to visit your site, signup for your newsletter, or visit your Facebook page.

With these simple steps, you will notice things start to happen. First, you establish yourself as the expert or authority in your niche market because these potential customers or existing customers will view your videos on YouTube. It also adds a convincing factor that you know what you are talking about. When a viewer has a need for a product or service that you offer, they will go directly to you because you know your stuff.

The Need to Add Value to Your YouTube Videos

need-add-value-YouTube-videosOne mistake that some business owners make with video marketing strategy is that they are afraid to give out too much information on their YouTube videos for fear that the viewer will just copy their strategy and do it themselves.

Well, we’ve got news for you – these people are never to hire you in the first place regardless of how much information that you release. These people are only bent on getting free information.

On the other hand, smart business owners would make a client understand the value of hiring someone who knows what they’re talking about. When they see your video, they will see you as an expert and then boom (as they say the rest is history).

Another benefit when you create videos that add value and create needs for your clients is that these people will most likely obey your call to action. It’s that simple. If you add value to someone’s life, you give them valuable information, you provide them help, they’ll most likely want more than that and if you tell them how and where to get that information they will surely listen.

If people find value in the information you’ve provided, they tend to share it with other people whom they feel will also benefit from this information. This in turn will help your video get around the world wide web and encourage more people to watch your video.

The bottom line is making sure you create value and need in your videos and you will surely go viral.

Is whiteboard animation enough for your company?

A lot of businesses today are using whiteboard animation for their online advertising and many companies are doing this because other businesses are also doing it. Stop and think for a while.

Putting Value on Your Marketing Videos

There are a lot of businesses that fail to put value on their videos. Take for example a mobile apps company that has uploaded a video on YouTube. It is an animated whiteboard video talking about an app but fails to show the customer the value of that app and why the customer needs it.

Not Just Whiteboard Animation

There may be times that a business may need more than just a whiteboard animation video to explain their product or service. In some cases, face time videos may be needed to strengthen the marketing campaign.

Create a multi-layered video campaign that includes animated videos, demo videos, testimonial videos, and in some cases, study videos. These videos will create transparency to your customers, it will tell them who you are and what your business can do for them. These types of videos are like a tapestry of different colors that mesh well and make sense all together. That is what video content marketing is all about.

Just in Case

Having a multi-layered video campaign can be quite tedious and expensive for some companies. If your business is bent on having whiteboard animation as its video content marketing strategy, then make sure the video is more thorough.

The video should not only contains snips of the business, it should also showcase the product or service like how it is used, the value of the product or service to the customer. Provide as much information as you can and the video should be helpful to your potential customers.

Don’t just advertise … educate your target market.
