If you’re starting a small business consider developing some short videos to promote it. Online business videos are hot these days because an increasing number of internet users prefer to learn something by watching a video instead of reading an article.
Create great videos by following these tips:
Keep it short and simple.
You don’t need to hire a professional production company to produce your videos. You can make and upload simple videos yourself. Buy a decent HD-quality video camera and learn to use the software that comes with it. It’s easy to upload a video directly to your blog, website, Facebook page, or YouTube channel.
Keep it honest.
The best videos are the ones featuring the business owner presenting a simple two-minute tip or message or thought that’s interesting to viewers. Script out a few points, rehearse a few times, but don’t worry about being perfect…as long as you’re speaking honestly and from the heart, your message will resonate with viewers.
Do it often.
To build an audience for your videos you’ll have to produce more than one. Schedule some time each month (or sooner) to produce a fresh video. Tell your audience what to expect from your next appearance to build up anticipation.
Marketing your startup business doesn’t have to cost a fortune. With a little effort and creativity, things like expert videos can create a big impact.
