With that being said, Bare Bones Marketing wants to help you by explaining some great tips for creating your new video:
Tip #1: Keep it Short and Sweet
Your average customer’s attention span is about 30 seconds to 2 minutes. This is extremely important when creating your advertising or branding video. So keep your video content concise and just provide follow up videos or suggest links to any questions your customers may have.
Tip #2: Create a Personal Message
When your audience is done watching a video they need to feel as though your brand or business is exactly what they have needed all along. You can have some fun here by making your small business seem like a hero in comparison to big corporate businesses. If you’re having a hard time coming up with a script consider using a testimonial from one of your customers.
Tip #3: Include Contact Information
Always include the phone number, website, and email address for your business. Make sure that their is audio in correlation with the visual of this information. And invite your customers to "Give you a call today!"
Tip #4: Incorporate a Call to Action
Be sure to mention any coupons or special offers they can look forward to after viewing your video. Over all, make it clear what the viewer should do after watching your video advertisement whether that is liking your social media page, visiting your website, or subscribing to your video channel.
Tip#5: Promote Your Video EVERYWHERE
After creating your video promote it through all of your online sources. Those sources include Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, email, and on your business website.
