There were days when social media was solely for personal use, however, those days are long gone. These days, businesses are supercharging their marketing campaigns by creating videos and promoting them on social media. The term used to describe videos shared on social medial platforms is ‘social video’.

A social video can be defined as a video that is created with the sole purpose of being viewed and shared via social media platforms. It is also important to note that videos intended to be used on social media platforms have to be customized for use in those specific platforms.

So, how can your business benefit from the use of social media videos? Here’s how:

Building your reputation

Consistently posting videos on social media platforms will give people the impression that your business is reputable. This builds confidence in your customers when they decide to try out your products or services. A high quality video will also make your brand standout from that of your competitors.

Promoting soon to be launched products

A good way of letting people know about your upcoming products or services is by posting the videos of your products or services on social media. For example, using Twitter, you can provide links to the videos of all your new products or services to all your followers. In this way, as soon as you launch your products or services, potential customers will already be aware and ready to try them out.

Monitoring feedback

By observing feedback posted by your social media followers you are able to understand whether the intended message is reaching your audience. In addition, people often leave their views on how you can better improve your business. If you are able to make the necessary changes, you are able to give your customers exactly what they want. This puts you ahead of your competitors.

Converting advocates into salespersons

Generally, when people use your service or product and like the experience, they will be eager to share the experience with their friends and family. If you provide the right videos that showcase your business, your social media followers will act as salespersons by sharing your videos through social media. The great thing about it is that they do it out of freewill and this can lead to a lot of sales over time.

Improving your websites search engine rankings

By sharing videos through social media platforms, your business’ brand awareness is enhanced. You are able to reach a large audience and inform them on the amazing products or services you offer. By using videos on social media to maintain user engagement and improve your website’s behavioral factor, your website is likely to see a positive effect on its search engine rankings.

From the recent trends, it is evident that users are choosing to interact more with visual content rather than written content. Since a huge majority of people use at least one social media platform, sharing interesting videos in any of these platforms makes it possible for people all over the world to learn about your business. Furthermore, videos spark emotions, show confidence and provoke viewers to take action. Therefore, adding relevant and engaging videos on social media is going to make your social marketing campaign yield results.
