Creating quality video content for marketing can be expensive. But if you already have some video content on your website, YouTube or other social platforms, the best way to save time and money in your video marketing activity is to repurpose video content.

Repurposing Videos for Facebook Ads.

The author has a number of great suggestions for repurposing videos for Facebook ads. In general, however, most of the suggestions are about how to get more attention for your video ad. We are particularly in agreement with his point that you must re-edit the videos so that you grab the viewer’s attention in the first few seconds. In fact, that is always a good idea with marketing videos, whether used for Facebook ads or not. For further tips on how long your video should be, see our earlier blog post here:

Video Marketing for service businesses is the subject of the lead article this week in our “Video Marketing Weekly.”

video Marketing for Service Businesses

Today’s digital marketing world is changing. Use of video on your website is one of the most effective content marketing strategies. This week the Video Marketing Weekly introduces some excellent advice for using video to market your services.

The lead article this week is titled “Video Marketing for Service Businesses.”

Videos are an incredibly versatile format for content marketing. When it comes to making videos to promote your brand—to engage your prospective clients and to showcase your products—professional quality usually demands professional prices. So if you’re going to spend the money, you want to maximize the value.

In this lead article, the author discusses some effective ways you can use video to market your service-based site.

The author has a list of 7 things to do when video marketing for service businesses. These firms want to maximize the effectiveness of their videos as a marketing tool. We’ve written extensively about most of these before. But we were taken by his first point, which is: ‘Offer value. Every video you create should provide something of value to your prospective clients, such as a tip or a how-to demonstration. Never create videos just for the sake of having videos on your site.’

This is an excellent point.

When video marketing for service businesses, it can be tempting to simply post videos about what your service business does and why it’s so great. However, your viewer will not be attracted to this type of video unless they see what is in it for them. If they have a perceived value, they will more likely remain engaged with your video content.

But with YouTube, the value does not necessarily need to be “baked in” to the video itself.

That is, the value can be added later with pop-ups and annotations that are added AFTER the video is uploaded to YouTube. This means the videos can be changed in the future as your business does. For example, you can offer special prices for different services at different times of the year as your marketing emphasis changes.

There are several other excellent articles in this edition of the Video Marketing Weekly.

So please be sure to look them over. There are many helpful hints and tips contained in there. And it’s free.

So, are you ready to start Video Marketing for your service business?

We would be delighted to help. We will put our more than 3 decades of video production and video marketing expertise to work for you.

We have lots of practical expertise in assisting companies in the creation of marketing videos. Our experience in both video production and the business world has advanced our credibility. Our experience in both video production and the business world has advanced our ability to accomplish this.

Use of Videos in Property Marketing is the Subject of the Lead Article in This Week’s “Video Marketing Weekly.”

video in property marketing

This week we have another great compilation of articles about the use of video marketing on the internet.

The lead article this week is titled “3 reasons to use video in property marketing.”

Have you considered the use of videos in property marketing? To give you the understanding of what you can accomplish when creating property videos, video marketing is yet another way to do this.

This article is written by an author from an Australian video company, but the principle applies to the US as well. He or she is right in saying that showing videos in property marketing is a growing trend and can really help sell homes.

Video has quickly become a vital marketing tool for businesses of all kinds. It is the quickest way to share information. It’s not just fast, it’s emotional and convincing. In this article, the author shares 3 reasons to use videos in property marketing. He also explores how we can attract more buyers and sellers for our businesses.

Using Videos to Advertise Real Estate – Videos in Property Marketing

We must admit that we disagree with the author on one point. When he or she says “I like to include a mini agent-vendor interview where necessary, and also include some narration from the agent throughout the video. This is where the agent can really delve into the main drawcards and create immediate attraction from the browsing buyers” we are not in agreement.

We think this is a bad idea for creating an appealing video for the property. Using agents to do narration looks amateurish – because it is. If you want the video to look and sound great, have the agent write the script to include important selling points about the property. But have a professional narrator add his or her voice.

The only advantage of having the agent do the narration is to pander to the agent. For the video company, this may well get future video production business from that agent. But it’s not aesthetically correct.

Videos in property video marketing are one of the best ways to appeal to the potential customers. Poor video marketing methods can turn off a buyer or seller just as soon as they see it.

Whether you are looking at doing videos in property marketing or not, we would be delighted to put our more than 3 decades of video production and video content marketing expertise to work for you.

So be sure to let us know if we can help you set the targets and strategies for your live video content marketing.
