3 Tricks for Using Video to Highlight Your E-Commerce Company

By Hope Horner

 

While online shopping has been around for a while now, it’s starting to become the preferred way to shop in America. The trend is based on the actions of the two largest age demographics: Sixty-seven percent of Millennials would rather browse and buy online, and 56 percent of Generation Xers agree.

 

The sea change toward online shopping isn’t the only notable internet trend of 2017. Video is everywhere you look online, and it’s being consumed at an incredibly high rate. In fact, Cisco predicts that video will make up about 80 percent of all internet traffic by 2019.

 

Businesses the world over are realizing (and capitalizing on) their customers’ preferences for video and its astounding marketing power. The e-commerce space, in particular, has much to gain by jumping on the video marketing bandwagon.

3 Video Marketing Tips to Turn Leads Into Clients

By Hope Horner


It’s no secret that video marketing is a powerful and compelling way for brands to tell their stories, raise awareness, and generate leads. However, the promotional capacity of video is just the tip of the iceberg; it’s also a highly effective way to convert those leads into sales. 

A recent Vidyard study revealed that more than 70 percent of businesses find improvements in their conversion rates when they utilize video marketing. This statistic shouldn’t be surprising, though. Compared to traditional text ads, video is a much more digestible medium for the human brain.

 

A 30-second clip can easily convey concepts that would otherwise require paragraph upon paragraph of words. To boot, video allows for this information to be presented in a much more entertaining fashion.

3 Ways to Ensure Your Video Campaign Is a Home Run

By Hope Horner

 

Even the most successful companies can find themselves stuck on a plateau — not necessarily losing ground, but certainly not gaining any. They often respond reflexively with their marketing strategies, maybe buying more ad space or sending more emails to subscribers. We’ve all been there, wondering how to turn leads into sales and get performance metrics back on track.

 

While every company’s situation is unique, an investment in video production is proven to attract new clients, engage current clients on a deeper level, and broaden overall marketing reach.

 

Sure, good video isn’t cheap, but the power of video marketing is indisputable. Internet traffic in 2017 is expected to be 74 percent video, and it’s not hard to see why: Video is more eye-catching than text and easier for the brain to digest quickly. In fact, merely including the word “video” in email subject lines can boost the effectiveness of a campaign, with 19 percent higher open rates and 65 percent higher click-through rates. Consumers want more high-quality video, and the companies that can deliver it will win.

Beyond Marketing: Using Video to Address Customer Concerns

By Hope Horner

 

The meteoric rise in the use of self-service options goes beyond a hatred of mind-numbing hold music. In fact, 75 percent of customers find the convenience of self-service attractive.

 

While today’s tech-savvy consumers are more empowered when it comes to finding answers to solve their own problems, they’re also more impatient with customer service than ever before. When customers run into support issues, they’re more likely to try to resolve those problems online and on their own terms than to reach out to a company over a call or email.

 

This makes good sense: Most customer service call centers have limited hours, while a company’s website is available at any time. What’s more, although people often complain that interacting with traditional phone-based customer service takes too long, the opposite side of that coin is viewed as an advantage of online self-service: They have as much time as they like to find the answers they need.

How to Effectively Match Your Video Content to the Buyer’s Journey

By Hope Horner

 

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then video must be pushing a million. Unlike still images, video marketing has the power to not only showcase your brand’s personality and tell an authentic story, but also to call your most important viewers to action.

 

Over 70 percent of businesses report seeing better conversion rates when using video over plain text in their marketing initiatives, and about three-quarters of B2B marketers corroborate that claim, according to a Demand Metric survey.

 

However, video isn’t only effective in closing sales — it can also be used to usher down the funnel those who aren’t quite ready to purchase. By carefully considering what your video content is about and how it’s positioned, you can turn new leads into lifelong customers.

4 Ways to Drive Your Digital Strategy with Facebook Video Ads

By Hope Horner

 

You know social media provides essential channels for maximizing digital marketing efforts. But what types of content are most effective on which platforms? From my view as a player in the video production and distribution game, I can tell you: Facebook video ads are your best bet.

 

The amount of traffic generated by these ads continues to grow at an astounding rate. To illustrate, by the end of 2015, Facebook was seeing about 8 billion video views per day. At the close of 2014, this figure was only one billion per day. Moreover, video traffic accounted for 70 percent of all consumer internet traffic in 2015, and this number is expected to rise to 82 percent by 2020.

 

When Facebook video ads enjoy an organic reach that is 159 percent greater than regular posts, it’s clear that video isn’t being consumed so much as devoured these days. While they certainly hold exciting potential, it’s important to avoid common mistakes that can cripple your campaign.
