Why is Video Content Marketing essential?
According to Cisco, video content accounts for 80% of all consumer internet traffic.
Videos on social media generate 1200% more shares compared with images and text together.
To get started, develop topics that interest your audience. A fantastic resource you can use is a website called, AnswerThePublic. AnswerThePublic listens to autocomplete data from search engines like Google to provide you with useful phrases and questions people are asking around your keyword. With the insight they provide, you now have access to a whole array of topics to start creating content from.
Another way to create relevant topics is to look at SEO research and understand what is popular in your industry. Focusing on keywords will help you put a new spin on them for your video content.
Post consistently high-quality video content.
When it comes to video content marketing, quality is your most important asset. Having links that are easily accessible encourages people to share your video with their site and external sites. Doing this can drive a lot more traffic to your site.
Have a promotional plan with a strategy in place.
Once you have uploaded your video, get everyone on your team and in your social channels to search for your keywords in your video, scroll down until they find it on Google, click on it to watch. Then like it and share it! The algorithm loves this!
Another way to ensure views on your content marketing video is to upload it to Youtube! Youtube is the second largest search engine on the web. Using Youtube to post your content marketing videos with a link to your website ensures that you have a big chance that your video will get views and shares. It is essential to make your title catchy and full of your SEO keywords so that the right people find your videos.
On Youtube, you can spend a small amount to get initial views on your video. In turn, paying for the first views makes your channel look more authentic and will lead to organic traffic finding you and subscribing to your videos.
