1. ONLINE MARKETING STRATEGY:
FREE VIDEO CONFERENCES
In short, whether you are selling a product or promoting a service, people need to pass through a learning phase to understand what are the pros of choosing us in place of other competitors.
Therefore, especially if your business consists in providing training of any kind for consumers or businesses and if you wish to involve new prospects or existing clients in an appealing way, organising free-to-join video conferences may certainly have an outstanding impact on your business!
For example, if you are selling training courses or seminars give your prospects a short one for free to test them out. In addition, if you sell products try to organise regular meetings to talk about benefits and ways to use your products or simply to answer people’s questions!
Platforms such as Zoom or Google Meet are amazing tools for this job! Are your clients on a certain social network? Try to use it to organise live events. For instance, Facebook has recently come out with Facebook Rooms which allows you to hold a meeting in a “zoom style” allowing anyone to join with a simple click on a button or link!
Therefore, go live and keep your audience warm!
2. ONLINE MARKETING STRATEGY:
VIDEO MAKING PLATFORMS
Video-making platforms are strictly important, especially nowadays. See it for yourself, create an ad with a simple image and a similar ad with a video with the same image as a cover. After that, you will see that the video will get at least 40% more clicks than the image!
For example, platforms such as Canva or Vimeo are great to create simple videos contents to engage your audience effectively.
Moreover, you may consider using TikTok as it binds a video-making platform with great features to a social network and it might turn out for you to be a good way to explore new markets (read also the article TikTok for Business – 5 Brand Booster Tips!)
