Video Marketing is growing in popularity and is increasingly crucial to include in a business’ marketing mix in order to generate sales leads and to help close sales.

Here are 5 tips for creating better video marketing to generate more sales leads and increase sales conversion.
1. Create Videos that Capture Viewers’ Interest Immediately
Since the average attention span in 2013 was only 8 seconds… we hope you’re still there. With the huge amount of video content available on the internet today, use the first few seconds of your video to interest viewers right away. Create short, interesting videos that get to the point quickly.
2. Capture Emails to Gain Sales Leads
To drive business and gain sales leads, your videos need to be more than entertainment alone. Use email captures on select videos to collect contact information. An optional email capture on your latest video can prompt subscription to your YouTube channel before viewers gain access to full-version content.

If you use website analytics you can see which campaigns are effective and design a process to create better videos. Start this process by creating a content map so you can effectively develop and schedule video content. Next, make sure you upload videos on various networks- YouTube, Facebook, Vimeo. Use video analytics to see what is working and what you need to work on. Then you can modify your next videos to perform even better. And don’t forget to promote your video networks on your website, email campaigns and social media.

You have your viewer’s attention, they watched your video to the end, now what? Take the opportunity to encourage your viewers to take action, whether you ask them to share their comments with you, sign up for your newsletter or go to your website. Include your website within your video in case they are viewing in a different network, or ask viewers to share with a friend. Always ask viewers to take action.
