What is a Videomercial?

Skillman Video Group now offers new videomercials as part of our Social Video Marketing Service. We call them “videomercials” because they are short video marketing postcards designed to tell the story of your business in under 2 minutes. If you do not have the time or the budget to create a longer marketing video that explains your business in detail, then a videomercial is perfect for you.

Remember, Social Video Marketing works in two ways: 1) you must get people to your site and 2) once on your site, the content has to be engaging & informative enough to convert those casual visitors into viable business prospects. The videomercial is an important piece of the overall SVM program as it acts as a hook for those casual web visitors to want to learn more about your company. That is, if visitors (after watching your fabulous video) want more, they can either watch more videos – or even better – pick up the phone and call!

One of the important points to think about while developing your marketing video, is to keep it simple. Depending on the nature of your business, most web visitors do not want to wade through long videos or pages and pages of text to learn basic information. Try to remember these three main ideas (the three C’s) that are the basis for our Video Marketing approach:

1. Capture – Use all the tools available in our Social Video Marketing service (SEO, social media, blogging etc) to drive visitors to your homepage. Once they are there, capture their attention with the story of your business through the use of an engaging and informative video. It is important to give viewers what they want to know as quickly and effectively as possible and video is a great way to not only capture their attention, but hold it.

2. Connect – What do your customers respond to? Is it your dedication to quality? Is it the years of experience that you have or your ability to get them results? Get right to the heart of the issue and connect with your customers and don’t fill the video with unnecessary info that might lose their attention. Less is more in the world of online videomercials!

3. Convert – We also like to call this the video conversion point. After a visitor sees your marketing video or videomercial, they should want learn more about your service or quite frankly, the video is not doing its job. You should have given all the info your visitors need and provided a clear way to contact you. Using a professional service such as SVM gives you the tools needed to help tell your story in the most effective and concise way possible. Quality DOES matter to your audience!
