Corporate Video Production & Online Video Marketing In 2010-ca1816

Marketing So, 2009 is over and a new decade is finally upon us, but what will 2010 mean for corporate video production and online video marketing? Well… 2009 was undoubtedly a landmark year and all the signs suggest that it looks set to explode! Here’s why. Long gone are the days when watching video online was a frustrating, time-consuming and heavily-pixellated experience. Thanks to the ubiquity of the Internet and ever-increasing bandwidths, we are all watching more online video than ever before. YouTube has become the 2nd biggest search engine after Google, Google now incorporates video directly into its search results and websites that don’t contain video are beginning to look positively archaic. As a result, businesses (large and small), charities and public sector organisations in 2009, began to really embrace corporate video production. In the cluttered, information-overload world of the Internet, they realised that not only does a well-produced short film or video advert have a much better chance of being watched, than long pages of static text ever do of being read, but also that people tend to believe what they can see and hear, far more than what they read. They also understood that video can have an emotional impact with a viewer way beyond that of the written word. In 2009, even the smallest local businesses started to commission video production companies to produce short promotional films and online adverts. And with more and more online business directories incorporating videos into their listings, corporate video production becoming more accessible, social networking becoming more popular and search engines becoming more sophisticated, there is simply no reason to think that this trend won’t continue apace. According to the latest research by the American firm Ad-ology, despite the global economic downturn 28% of small business owners in the United States are planning to use more online video advertising to market their companies in 2010 – as well as increase their use of popular social media networks like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. A percentage this high clearly suggests that online video marketing is here to stay and that the reluctance of smaller companies to embrace video marketing technologies is futile. It’s also reflects a renewed sense of optimism amoung small business owners about the general direction of the global economy, combined with the increased affordability and reach of corporate video productions. However, smart businesses in 2010 won’t just be using video online. The effectiveness, versatility and most importantly the increased accessibility of corporate video production means that more and more businesses will start or continue to use video for an increasingly wide range of applications, from training staff and sales presentations, to recruitment, internal communications, video conferencing, the promotion of CSR credentials and green initiatives, glossy commercials, large company presentations, blogs and customer testimonials. The possibilities are almost endless! It was not so long ago when corporate video production was frowned upon by many and its efficacy doubted. It has now become one of the most reliable and cost-effective forms of marketing around, and thanks to the continued development and expansion of the Internet, it is quickly becoming a commercial necessity. Organisations and companies (large and small) who are not using it for marketing purposes, will very soon find themselves behind the competition and playing catch up. The future of corporate video production and online video advertising looks very bright indeed! About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
