QS Network News – Rame Marketing discusses the power of video marketing

rame-digital-marketingTorbay Business Network attendee and contributor, Andrew Walker of Rame Marketing, has noted down his thoughts on the power of video marketing. He experimented himself with a project that’s been 3-years on the ‘to-do’ list and finally put out his very own video, showing web visitors what he can do to help solve their marketing problems. Andrew said:
“It helps a business to get found online, it improves the engagement between prospects and that business, people are happy to view, share and like them and research shows they can increase conversion rates. Yes I’m talking about video, one of the most under utilised channels in the marketing toolbox.
I’ve added video to my site to verbally explain to my web visitors what I can do to help solve their problems. It has the added advantage of letting people see who I am and what I look like and introducing the human touch to business.
At the same time I’ve really focused in on my niche, ruthlessly cutting content and services to rapidly get to the point of what I offer and introducing a number of service based packages suitable for businesses of all shapes and sizes.”
He also said he experimented with a boosted Facebook post to see what would happen to a teaser video once it got more traction. He spent just £14 promoting the post to a highly targeted audience and it culminated in 2800 views, gaining lots of likes, shares and comments on the way.
Andrew also shared his advice with us on utilising video marketing. He commented: “My advice is to get started as fast as you can, it doesn’t have to be expensive as all new smartphones now have an integrated HD video camera.”
