Video Promotion For Improved Web Traffic

Driving up web traffic is the biggest challenge a website faces today. The market is flooded with techniques that promise the moon but how many of them really work and produce results? Video promotion is among the most popular current trends – as a highly web promotion technique and is already a proven method.

As every one knows a picture speaks a thousand words and a video can be said to speak much more than that. An impression created by a video on a visitor to your site could have a lasting impact and this in turn will make him/ her recollect it to others. Thus a small piece of impressive video matter can make your blog go a long way in terms of promotion.

When making a video there are a few things to be considered. These include content of the video and the way it is made are critical to the video’s success. The content should be crisp and to the point. No meandering or beating about the bush. It should also be for a short time but can have a “jolt” factor – some thing to make your viewers sit up and take notice of the proceeding. After all, the ultimate aim of your video is to popularize your products and services. So make sure that your content is oriented towards that end in view.

Next is to get the video made out by professionals unless you the website owner are a video professional yourself. Because even very good content can fail to impress if it is on a badly made video. Good editing, suitable audio, clear lighting and sequence of events are critical things that only a professional can do justice to. Not only that – professionals who are dealing with such videos day-in and day-out can give you many more innovative ideas to make your content more interesting and attractive. So it would be a good idea to spend money on getting your video done.

Videos of testimonials from existing customers and general promotional video are the two broad categories in video promotion content. Testimonials in any form serve to build trust among new comers to your site and encourage them to go for your products and services. A video testimonial has a more realistic element to it and the trust it can build is instantaneous. An existing customer that a new visitor can watch while he speaks favourably about your services is a great way to earn trust and generate instant business which is the ultimate goal of any promotion. Promotional videos have visuals and associated audio that promote your products and/ or services.

They may even be accompanied by special graphics and special effects to enhance the impact on viewers. The video running time should neither be too long nor too short. It typically varies from a sew seconds to a maximum of four to five minutes. These videos when properly made are a cost effective advertising strategy and can help in business growth.
