Introducing Video Marketing
There are three distinct tasks to creating and publishing a video online to effectively promote an event or special offer:
- Create your video and upload to your preferred video distribution platform; for example, YouTube, Vimeo, etc
- Optimise your video so it will rank higher, and so be more easily found
- Syndicate your video to place it amongst a wider audience and create links back to your main video platform
Here we’ll summarise the basic steps to optimise your video
Why Optimise your video?
To gain a wider reach and more exposure so your video can be more easily found by your target audience…
- in search results on Youtube
- in the search engine results such as on Google, Bing, Yahoo, etc.
Our Basic Optimisation Formula
Before you publish, be clear on the following:
Objective: Purpose of the video – Promote an event, offer, or other item from a local business
Call to Action: What do you want your viewers to do in response to watching the video?
– typically to request more info, download something, or to contact you.
Target Keywords: Are you promoting your brand, and/ or a specific offer? Organisations serving a local community show always include their location (city, town).
[keyword 1] [keyword 2] [keyword 3], [location] (and combinations where appropriate)
Include the main target keyword in a short attention-getting phrase.
Line 1: Landing page url; Contact phone; Business Name & Location
– if your main objective is branding, use your home page url; if promoting an offer, enter the landing Page for the offer or event.
Line 2: Description of the purpose & content of your video in terms of its value to your viewers; Include the main target keyword, and 1-2 other keywords
Line 3: Call to Action
Such as – Tap for more information, Call us on [phone number], Download this voucher,
