Did you know?

 

  • 70% of all consumer internet traffic is a result of video marketing

  • Over 65% of marketers will be using video marketing in their on line business marketing effort this year

  • When it comes to potential reach, video is peerless. YouTube receives more than one billion unique visitors every month – that's more than any other channel

 

Leafing through a swathe of statistics on the subject, I'm hard pressed to find any indicator that doesn't suggest rapid growth.

 

With online video quickly becoming a key means for people to satisfy their information and entertainment needs, small businesses that fail to include it in their internet marketing strategies will do so at their peril.

 

The success stories of videos that have gone viral are legend. Here are the charity videos that attracted the most attention this year in terms of views:

  6. Do They Know its Christmas? – Band Aid 30 10,732,553

  8. #ViolenceisViolence – ManKind 8,400,196 

  9. #LaughLearnGive – YouTube & Comic Relief 8,101,846 

  10. There Is No Them, Only Us – Bank of America and (RED) 7,896,679 

 

For any social media campaign, any SEO exercise, video is without doubt one of the best tools in the kit.

 

It is naturally engaging and, in an age of information overload, it's vital for small businesses to offer content that is easy to digest; if not, consumers will simply move on. Video does this very well. If a picture paints 1,000 words just think of what a video is worth.

 

But is video really possible for small businesses?

 

Absolutely.

 

Production costs have fallen significantly in recent years and you no longer need to be a technical whiz to work out how to use it. Apps such as Twitter's Vine, with its six-second maximum clip length, have dramatically increased the opportunity for businesses on a limited budget to get stuck in.
