If you record it (right) ... they will watch

Last week we offered a bunch of (almost unbelievable) stats about using videos in your marketing and then left you with a daunting task: "you need to start making videos."

We promised we'd be back this week with some video tips, and here they are.

  • Start with an objective
    • Don't make videos because your competition is or because we say so  make videos for a reason. Plausible reasons include customer testimonials, explanations of how your products solve a problem, and product demos.
  • Keep it short and sweet
    • 60% of users stop watching videos after two minutes, so aim to get your message across in two minutes or less.
  • Use CTAs correctly
    • Want people to take an action because of your video? Make it easy for them by putting clickable CTAs right in the video.
  • Promote it
    • You worked hard on that video  promote the heck out of it!


Video is no longer an up-and-coming" marketing tactic  it's here to stay. The good news is that it's a powerful, effective way to communicate with your audience, so as long as you follow our advice, making videos will be a worthwhile time investment.

On a related note, you can read a blog about video blogging (aka vlogging) here.
