Have You Considered Video Marketing?
I just read a post from Design Damage that you may want to take a look at called Four Internet Marketing Trends for 2011. The part that particularly caught my eye were the statistics related to video marketing...
"Do you know that a YouTube channel is the equivalent of a Facebook profile? Do you know that online video can help with your SEO?
Let’s take a look at some data here for you to think about.
At the 2010 Search Engine Strategies Conference & Expo, Greg Jarboe, president and co-founder of SEO-PR revealed that:
- Americans watch more videos a month on YouTube than they conduct searches on Google
- A video is 50 times more likely to get a first-page Google ranking than a text page
If those finding aren’t stunning, coming from an SEO perspective check out Pew Internet Research’s recent study indicating that “7 in 10 adult internet users (69%) have used the internet to watch or download video. That represents 52% of all adults in the United States.”
So if you have any showmanship or knowledge to impart, why not set up a Youtube channel, dress it up to match the look of your other social networking profiles and let rip!
