Why Use Video In Your Marketing?

Digital Street Inc Video

You may still be a little unsure of how Digital Street’s video marketing service can help drive traffic to your website. Rather than confusing you more with a bunch of technical explanations, we want to compare it to something simple—a store’s salesperson. A lot of times you’ll go into a store to just browse, but when a salesperson helps you out and points out things that you may be interested in, you are more likely to buy something. Well, online videos are a lot like having a sales force on your website by adding a human element to highlight your services. Essentially, they are short snapshots of a business that can help turn online browsers into buyers for the same reasons a store’s salesperson does.

They greet customers.
Just as a salesperson greets you when you walk into a store, online videos allow you to speak to customers interested in your business. They show your brand’s personality in a way that might not come across in your website’s design or text.

They talk about promotions.
When you have a lot of products or services to offer, online videos can help draw attention to specific capabilities that may be new, updated, on sale, etc.

They bring you something quickly.
Even though everything about your business may be found on your website, a video can show people information faster and in a more entertaining way. This is especially helpful when explaining something complicated. For instance, wouldn’t you rather watch a 5-minute video over reading several pages of text?

They let you see something first.
If a person can watch a video about a product and how it works, they are more likely to consider buying it. Videos are a great way of showing product demonstrations, tutorials, training, and customer testimonials.

Domino’s Pizza Shows Corporate America How To Use Social Media

Posted on Jan 11, 2010 by Michael Herman | Posted in Social Media

Domino's Pizza

Domino’s Pizza has shown itself to be extremely nimble when it comes to the changing media landscape. They were quick to respond a few months ago when two knucklehead employees posted a video of themselves on YouTube doing heinous things to a customer’s pizza.

Now, more recently they’ve harnessed the power of social media to listen to critics. Rather than run from criticism of their pizza or simply run a PR campaign to counter it, they’ve embraced it and tried to make better pizza. According to Domino’s, the most common complaint they receive via Twitter, email, Facebook, and elsewhere is that their crust tastes like cardboard. In response, they scrapped their recipe entirely and started over from scratch. There were complaints about the sauce tasting like Ketchup, so they scrapped that recipe too. As painful as the complaints were, Domino’s took them to heart and set out to make their product better.

What many companies don’t realize is just how much it means to customers simply to be heard. The only thing worse than buying a crappy product is knowing that the company doesn’t care if you think their product is crappy. When a company like Domino’s listens to customer complaints and creates all new recipes in  response to those complaints it’s a big deal. Even if their pizza still isn’t the best, they will have the kind of brand loyalty other companies only dream about.

Just letting your customers know you care is one of the most powerful marketing devices you can employ. I know that seems odd, but it’s true. Consumers are so used to hearing corporate spin and CYA excuses that it’s a real breath of fresh when a company acknowledges mistakes and promises to do better.
