Videos on Landing Pages
If you’ve ever done anything in the world of online marketing, you will already know how important videos are for landing pages and getting people to take action. The majority of the top products and offers on clickbank.com are using video to drive a massive amount of leads and new customers through their sites, and you should too!
Getting an Intro Video Made
An excellent way to brand your videos is to have a quick intro at the beginning. Nothing too long that it becomes annoying for the viewer if they are to watch multiple videos of yours. Something short that shows your logo and delivers a message. My friend Kevin did a great write up on places where you can get custom video intros designs.
Include You in Your Videos
I started making my own videos earlier this year and plan to get into it more, but I wanted to make sure I was able to connect with my audience and not just show them a power point presentation or screenshots of different sites. Instead I included a video within the video of myself talking. This not only allows the person to better relate with your video and content, but it also helps grow your brand and awareness of who you are.
Creating an End Call to the Action
One of the best tips that you will need to take action on is to put an “call to action” at the end of your video. This can be something you can click on, a url to display or telling your audience to do something or ask them a question. No matter what you do, don’t end your video with nothing. You have the viewer engaged and they are already waiting to take action and move on from your video. Tell them what to do next!
