With it, you get the opportunity to broadcast your knowledge and expertise to an engaged audience, hungry for honest guidance as they make purchase decisions.
However, while many businesses would love to produce more videos for their websites and social platforms, they often encounter a few problems along the way and commit a few common mistakes.
Risks & Fears
For starters, you may not know anything about producing, shooting, editing, or promoting video content. Without much of this initial video know-how, many fear they’d produce subpar pieces and would rather not attempt it than to risk underperforming.
High Outsourcing Costs
This often makes teams explore outsourcing their video content to production companies, but like many creative services, the high cost alienates those that simply can’t afford them.
Plus, while outsourced videos can often look and sound amazing, it often puts you at the mercy of the company’s interpretation of what it believes to be your message to be. In short, you lose a bit of creative control in the process.
Furthermore, to have a one-minute video produced by a production company can get incredibly expensive-- much less multiple videos.
That's why creating your own culture of video is so important. Producing your own videos will save you a ton of money in the long-run.
Your audience is hungry for information and you’d be surprised at just how much of your content they’d be willing to consume in video as they work their way towards a purchase decision.
Not only are these folks watching hundreds of videos each month, but 90% of online shoppers have claimed videos have helped them make purchases.
Add in that audiences are 10x more likely to engage with your videos over traditional blog posts, and you should be wondering, “why haven’t I been creating videos this whole time?”
Maybe it’s because you’re not sure where to start, and you don’t have a defined strategy for using videos in your marketing and sales efforts, or maybe you don’t know the basics of shooting, editing, or publishing videos. Or maybe you don’t know how to analyze your videos to measure their effectiveness and return on investment (ROI).
