Why Video Is Critical To Your Online Presence
There are many factors that go into building a strong online presence for your business. Written content and photography are vital to any brand or business's online presence, yet a great video can be what really takes your marketing to the next level. It seems the world is moving at a faster pace and that people would rather watch a 3-minute video than read a few paragraphs of text. Video allows the viewer to kick back, relax, and enjoy without having to do any reading.
A video can live on your website or social media platforms and be there 24/7 for your customers and prospects to view. Video can give your audience a glance into your company and show them exactly what you do at any time. A prospect who is cross country can take a tour of your facility, learn about your skill sets, and learn why they need to do business with you before even seeing your facility in person.
Social Media 101
In today's day and age social media is a topic that isn’t going away anytime soon. Social Media can be what springboards your business forward or be what holds you back in the long run. The impact that social media can have on a company's image can be extremely positive or negative and that’s why it's crucial to get it right early on and continue doing so.
To start there is no correct way to do social media. There is no formal rule book that needs to be followed and no checklist to complete. Each and every business is different and has different goals for what they want out of their social media. A first step in setting the foundation would be to think of who your target market is. Once you’ve established that baseline you can build your audience.
