Using Videos in Your Online Marketing Arsenal

There are a lot of facets to internet marketing and it can be quite complicated to learn and implement effectively. However, one thing almost anyone can do to help market their business online is video creation/distribution and vlogging. Video marketing can be an extremely useful method for getting targeted traffic and new customers. They are also great for adding fresh useful content to your website and can really help your business in many ways.

You might be thinking that you don’t have the equipment or personality necessary to do this. But one important thing to remember is that you don’t need to create fancy videos. Even really basic videos can be quite effective.

Some of the most popular video bloggers (vloggers) in the world don’t do anything except sit in front of their computers and talk into a basic webcam. And most of the top watched vids on the internet were recorded by amateurs with regular cameras or even their phones. It’s highly likely that you already have the equipment and skills necessary to get into video production, or you can get them relatively easily if you don’t.

Once you have recorded the video you can publish it in any number of places on the internet. YouTube is always a great start but there’s also Vimeo, Viddler, Metacafe, Daily Motion, and many others. However, you can also post it on your blog and social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Google Plus, and so on. Doing this will help you get more views and increase the overall traffic you get from the video.

The more videos you make and the further they are shared online, the more it will help establish you as an expert within in your niche. The inherent authority you gain from this will already pre-sell you to any potential customers who see your videos. Obviously, this will help you gain more business without any extra work.

As I said, even the most basic videos will help you effectively market your business online as long as they provide useful information that your target audience will want to watch and share. You can boost the popularity of any website you own through video distribution. The simple fact is that they are a great tool that you should definitely be using to help your business find more success via internet marketing.
