Creating online content for your brand is one of the best ways of reaching customers and improving visibility.

You probably already have a social media presence on Facebook or Twitter, and possibly a blog as well. But if you really want to reach your target audience effectively and create an impression of your brand that lasts, you need to be creating videos.

Video marketing is one of the most effective methods of brand promotion there is. Here’s a look at why—and how you can use it to your advantage.

Using Videos to Resonate With Customers

Having a blog is great. You can use it to keep people updated on your brand and products, give tips and instructions for solving common problems in your field, and more. And with proper SEO, you can use it to drive people to your site and provide them with the information they’re looking for.

But blogs can also be a turnoff for a lot of customers; they arrive at your site, and the first thing they see is big blocks of text they don’t have time to read. Maybe they’ll skim it looking for something useful, but many will simply skip over your site and proceed to the next one.

That’s where videos come in.

Videos can be much more successful than written text at presenting information. Some 73% of customers are more likely to make a purchase after watching a video explaining a product or service, according to a study by Animoto.

And a video can do everything your blog can do, but visually: You can use it to tell your customers about news and product updates, rather than writing about them; in addition to step-by-step instructions for solving common problems, you can provide actual demonstrations; you can even use SEO tactics to increase your video’s visibility, by entering common search terms as video tags.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. If you want to communicate with your target audience effectively about your brand and products, videos are the best way to do it.

Using Videos to Boost Your Marketing ROI

Sure, videos are effective, but creating high-quality video content also takes a lot of money and resources, right? Well, not necessarily, but we’ll get to that in a minute. According to the survey noted earlier, 87% of respondents using digital video marketing tactics reported a significant return on their investment. That’s because video content can bring you numerous benefits.

Video marketing improves SEO. Google likes to include videos at the top of its search result pages when possible, as they catch people’s attention and draw them in. Because of that, your videos are much more likely to rank on the first page of a Google search than blogs, articles, and other content that revolves around text. Video also works better when you send it to your target audience directly. Next time you send out an email blast, include a link to one of your videos. You’re liable to get a higher open and clickthrough rate as a result.

Whatever way you use videos, they can help drive more people to your site and improve your overall sales. With that in mind, video marketing is an avenue that’s worth spending a little bit of money on to do right.
