Rank Higher On Search Engines
SEO (search engine optimization) is a practice that helps your website and business higher in search results. There are millions of searches made everyday, so SEO specialists spend lots of time and money to better optimize their sites to rank for the right searches.
Video is one way you can easily rank your business higher on search engines. YouTube is the second-largest search engine in the world. With Video your business can easily rank higher for relevant keywords, products and services to those who are actively searching.
From product reviews, testing, how-to or just testimonials, these videos can help secure traffic to your website, from one of the most popular search engines. Even embedding a youtube video not the landing page of your business can help you rank higher for searches.
Adding video to your website can increase your search rankings on Google (and others like Bing and Yahoo) significantly. This can get you closer to first page results. Which is crucial since 75% of people never venture past that first page! The higher your business ranks on search engines the more traffic your website can get!
Grow On Social Media
Video content is one of the most popular mediums on any social media. With entire social media networks being focused on video, video marketing is a great way to get even more awareness for your brand!
Tiktok took the world by storm, and now has over 800 million users. Other social media platforms are following suit, and encouraging users to make video content.Instagram even announced that their algorithms are favoring video content.
Pages that create and share video content are being promoted and performing better than those without.
Not only do social media networks love video, but so do your clients. Back in 2018, a study showed that 54% of consumers wanted to see more video content from the brands or businesses they support.
Making an instagram reel or even a tiktok can seem overwhelming if you don’t know where to start. These 3 tips can help you get started on making video content:
- Product Shots: Always make sure you have plenty of footage of your products or services.
- Shareability: Is this useful, funny or even using a trending sound? All of these things can make a great video!
- Length: Depending on what platform you are using might require or have better video length. It’s always better for a video to be too short than too long and risk boring customers.
