Why bother?
There’s something to be said for face to face contact. But time is short and there’s hell of a lot of people/customers to get to in an ever decreasing 24-hour day. But for those of us, who thrive on knowing who we’re talking to, understanding what people are about or just connecting with others, the answer is here and it’s online video.

Really?
Yes, Online video viewing and usage is fast becoming one of the fastest growing Internet trends, with Hitwise reporting UK Internet traffic to Video websites has increased by 40.7% over the last 12 months. Websites like YouTube and BBC iPlayer are among the top most popular websites and You Tube alone has 15 hours of video uploaded to its site every minute.

So what does this tell me?
This trend demonstrates that – one, video is now a key component on the online landscape and two; that consumers are using and behaving differently on the web. Where once inaccessible, video is now within their grasp as faster broadband connections have made it easier for audiences to engage with this channel. After all, it’s everyone’s opportunity to 15 minutes of fame.

The benefits summarised ..
In a nutshell, here’s why you should be thinking business video:

  • It lets you speak your customers’ language but in a highly effective, targeted way.
  • It puts a face and adds personality to your business plus increases trust in consumers because you’re effectively saying to them – ‘you know who I am now, come buy from me’.
  • It allows your customer to engage with you as they would in face to face contact building a community. A community of customers – what more could you want.
  • Once you do video, it’s forever – you can reuse your video again and again.
  • By uploading your video to community sites line BusinessTube.org,  you are suddenly reaching a whole new market – every one of those users is a potential customer.
  • It’s not that difficult to do – you can use your webcam, mobile phone or handy cam to deliver different messages time and time again.
