In a perfect world, you could sink endless resources into video marketing to nurture and convert valuable leads. Attempting to achieve this marketing utopia can have some severe shortcomings though.
“Perfect is the enemy of good.” — Voltaire
Is video quality important? No doubt about it! Is some video far more effective than the “perfect” video that always stands just outside of your budgeting grasp? Absolutely. While we certainly vouch for producing high-quality video marketing, do not let an imperfect budget stand in the way of what can be achieved.
Go ahead and get started! There is a myriad of uses for videos that can be accomplished on less-than-Hollywood-production funding.
Video marketing can fit your needs even on a smaller budget
Vlogs: Vlogs can be used for information-based posts. Instead of a lengthy blog post that may have difficulty captivating your audience’s attention, turn to vlogs to get your information noticed! Demos are a perfect use of the vlog format. Take potential customers on a walk-through of what it would be like to utilize your services or product. There is a big difference between being told something can help you and being shown precisely how it will make your life better. Vlogs can do this for you. If demos are not the right mode for you, perhaps a more informational tutorial can aid your business’s marketing needs. If a large portion of your customer base does not understand the functionality of a product, they may not realize exactly how it can provide value. Tutorials can fill this knowledge gap and leave valuable hard leads behind.
Webinars: Webinars can help your business throughout every step of the sales process. It can build lists for potential email marketing campaigns, it can advance leads by providing information and knowledge on a product, and it can even convert potential customers into paying customers. Webinars are affordable to host and can be conveniently produced. For the price of a few hours of your time, you can gain potential customers and produce content value that will leave your audience wanting more. The most important piece of webinars is producing value though. No one will sign up to be sold to. People will sign up and attend to be educated, informed, and entertained. Maximize your budget, host a webinar, provide value, and watch the leads roll in.
