NEW YORK, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Forrester Research1, watching a one-minute video has the impact of reading 1.8 million words. As a resource-strapped small business marketer, video marketing can be the single most practical use for your marketing time and energy. Effective video marketing has to be engaging right from the start, and in the latest article posted to PR Newswire's Small Business PR Toolkit, contributing author Penny Sansevieri provides three easy types of videos that can be incorporated into an overall marketing strategy.
- Trailer. A video trailer is an excellent way to showcase your products and services in a professionally produced video that provides just enough of a hook to create a desire to get the complete story.
- Relationship videos. Integrating video newsletters into your marketing mix, is an excellent way to continue to build relationships with your audience, especially in light of internet users becoming increasingly more accustomed to consuming content in this matter.
- How-to videos. What better way to solve a customer's problem, than by creating a how-to tutorial video that provides step-by-step instructions, which provides resolution to their dilemma? These videos effectively convey messages in a timely manner eliminating the need for your audience to find and read a solution in print.
Small businesses are continually discovering the power of video marketing, and with good reason -- it's becoming cheaper than ever to implement, and exceptionally easy to distribute. For further discussion on the power of video marketing, read Sansevieri's post here: http://bit.ly/1NagpY4.
