Why video marketing is important for your business

It used to be the radio – the big thing in advertising.  All households had their radios playing for hours every day and big companies took advantage of that to promote their products.

Then came the TV and the image became a more powerful vehicle to capture the attention and interest of the viewer.  However television has been and still is quite expensive that only big corporations can afford.  So what can small business owners do to broaden their reach, strengthen their brand and attract more clients?

Welcome to the era of internet!  We have now reached to the point that internet access is not only for the few and techie experts, it is for everyone including kids, teens, adults and senior citizens.

People don’t search the yellow pages anymore to find a business they need, they search the internet.  And whom will they choose? Someone  they can like and trust.

It’s been proven that one of the best ways for every business / business owner / entrepreneur to achieve this is through video.

It has actually been said that by 2016 online video will be the largest single generator of consumer internet traffic worldwide (55%!!) .

And of course the top online video platform is Youtube.
