Videos in Social Media Marketing
In social media, the accent in marketing strategy is developing relationships. Convenience also plays a role in successful social media and video marketing.
In years past, the window of time to grab public attention was ten seconds. Video marketing beats that record in split-second advertising. Not to mention that customers have the convenience of choosing the best times to view videos on social media. They can scroll through videos at their leisure on social media which is usually when most individuals are most relaxed and more receptive to making purchases.
Timing and convenience are only two reasons videos are important for your social media marketing strategy. Tactically it is far more advantageous to build individual C2B relationships via video than the traditional walk in or door to door customer approach.
Sponsors on Social Media
Savvy businesses look to the top social media sites to become advertising sponsors. In this way, video marketing has access to a captive audience.
Don’t forget that very frequently those who post to groups on major media sites often discuss ads they are viewing which helps product and business branding. That’s a cost-effective way to maintain advertising budgets.
Cost-Effective Video Marketing
Video marketing offers the best opportunity for brand exposure while at the same time maintaining cost-effective marketing.
When you consider that a formal TV or Internet commercial can cost thousands of dollars, it’s easy to see the cost savings with videos on Facebook, TikTok, or Instagram that cost pennies by comparison.
Consider the Retargeting Factor
Imagine the cost savings of videos that can be viewed sequentially. For example, an initial video previously watched can be followed up with a second or third video. In this way, viewers can be targeted with a more direct response type of advertising.
Developing Video Marketing Relationships
When viewing marketing videos, viewers cab be ingratiated into a customer pool simply by assessing the most viewed videos. For business owners, this is a time-saving way to develop solid video marketing relationships.
There is no doubt that LinkedIn is among the most effective platforms to identify contacts and companies to connect with for different opportunities. It has become a great marketing tool for salespeople through social selling.
Social media platforms have made the world become a global village. Ever since tik tok was launched, it has gained a tremendous following besides being used in over 150 countries.
Social media has provided a platform for businesses to advertise and reach out to the right people. Take advantage of social platforms as a cost-effective and efficient way to market and reach your target audience. Here are some of the advantages of using social accounts pages for your business.
