Video Marketing for Your Company

A promotional video is essentially a TV commercial for the Internet. But unlike a TV spot, an online video can be produced and distributed for a fraction of the cost. A promotional video can be posted on your website, shared via email and enewsletter, posted on YouTube and Vimeo, used as a video ad on a website like
Hulu, among many other things. And while you can reach a large audience on television, you can reach a much more targeted and relevant audience online, not to mention the potential for a viral promotional video that reaches millions of viewers for “free”.

Almost 50% of internet users look for videos related to the product or service before visiting a store and ensuring that your marketing video is at the top of the search platform in order to dominate a market.
