Why Video Marketing Is so Valuable to SME

This month is perfect for just taking time out and reflecting on the year’s Social Media outcomes for WFiL. One of the questions I’ve asked myself is Why Video Marketing Is So Valuable?

As a result I have come to the conclusion that I need to make more films or the next best thing is to feature more videos on the website: videos are the way forward. Here is what Buffer has to say:-

An extracts from a Buffer Blog below seeks to answer this question.

Video marketing has taken the social media world by storm.
People watch more than 100 million hours of video on Facebook.
YouTube brings in nearly 4,950,000,000 video views daily.
Snapchat alone fuels more than 10 billion video views every single day!

What was just a blip on the radar a few years ago is now a top content marketing priority for brands and influencers everywhere. Yet the barrier to creating video marketing content that resonates with audiences can still feel high.

Many marketers who are looking to get started with video marketing will turn to YouTube—and for good reason: With 300 hours of videos uploaded to YouTube every minute, YouTube has huge potential for reaching a big audience.

There’s another equally large and quickly growing video home as well: Facebook.

If you find yourself intimidated by the concept of creating video content, you’re not alone.

Every minute of the day, YouTube users alone upload 72 hours of new video content, not to mention uploads to Facebook, Vimeo, Daily Motion or Wistia.

With all that noise, making your video stand out, increasing engagement and finding ways to add value is a mammoth task; which makes doing it right even sweeter.

Dr. James McQuivey did calculated frames per second and length of video to find that the value of a 1-minute video is worth 1.8 million words. http://bit.ly/2bAbyrx

September is all about OPEN HOUSE LONDON

Open House London is the capital’s largest annual festival of architecture and design. Now in its 22nd year, it is a city-wide celebration of the buildings, places, and neighbourhoods where we live and work. http://bit.ly/1jgNftN

Visit these iconic places:

FIRST OF ALL:

 1 FINSBURY CIRCUS

This Lutyens Grade II listed building has been comprehensively redeveloped to provide a high quality contemporary interior, with a fully glazed spectacular atrium roof to maximize daylight and aspect. http://bit.ly/2bILoAo

SECONDLY:

10 DOWNING STREET

10 Downing Street has been the residence of British Prime Ministers since 1735. Behind its black door the most important decisions affecting Britain for the last 276 years have been taken. It functions as the official residence of the Prime Minister, their office and also where the PM entertains guests including Her Majesty the Queen. Every single room, every staircase and corridor has witnessed events that have shaped our nation. href=”http://bit.ly/2bJvfvA”>http://bit.ly/2bJvfvA

THIRDLY:

13 PRINCELET STREET

A well-preserved early example of speculative housing, a former Huguenot’s house (1718). Though not grand, the building is dignified and well proportioned, providing early inhabitants with room to both live and work. http://bit.ly/2bOIxJ5

FOURTHLY:

18 STAFFORD TERRACE – THE SAMBOURNE FAMILY HOME
From 1875, the home of the Punch cartoonist Edward Linley Sambourne, his wife Marion, their two children and their live-in servants. Today, the house is recognised as the best surviving example of a late Victorian middle-class home in the UK. It is remarkably well-preserved and complete with its original interior decoration and contents. Built by Joseph Gordon Davis in 1871. http://bit.ly/2bGVaCG

30 ST MARY AXE
30 St Mary Axe, affectionately known as the ‘Gherkin’, is a landmark curvilinear 40-storey office building in the heart of London’s financial centre and is unlike any other ever conceived. With distinctive tapering form that minimises its footprint and effect on the London skyline and eco-friendly glazed skin with lightwells. http://bit.ly/2bwLVJn

PRODUCTS FROM AMAZON AFFILIATE

Below are some of the products we’ve been promoting as Amazon Affilates.

1. I’ve been interested in a wi-fi enabled doorbell for some time now. I decided to finally take the plunge.

2. It did a great job charging two iPhone 6s we got about 2.5 full charges out of it each day 

3. Would I make this our everyday stroller at home? Not at all, but when we travel it is a life saver. 

4. For all Cat Lovers there’s the Sureflap microchip cat flap 

5. I’ve read a few of Jojo Moyes’ previous books but I think she’s moved onto a whole new level with her latest offering.
