There’s a lot to be said about re-using things. You can recycle old rubber tires and plastic water bottles, so why not re-purpose video content? In fact, if you leverage them correctly, they will provide content for your brand or product on a lot of different levels.

Say you’ve recently produced a commercial, product video or recruitment video. There can be life beyond the video’s original purpose!  Here are some insights on how you can re-purpose video content professionally to increase ROI for your company.:

  1. Website Content: It has been shown that consumers vastly choose video over text when given the option of how information is delivered and your website is prime real estate. House your product videos on product pages, introductions to the company on the company profile page, happy customer videos on the testimonials page, and your employee recruitment videos on your careers page.
  1. Social Media: We’re not just talking about posting your video on social video streaming sites like YouTube, although that should be a given. Videos are excellent content for Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest. Studies have shown that videos and images yield higher engagement rates on these platforms than text alone. So, if you want your message seen—and heard—video is a shoe-in.

                            

  1. Email Blasts: Email marketing is not dead; in fact, it’s still a very viable way to market your product or service, with over 97% of Americans checking their email every single day. The trick is to make people want to read your emails; but if you include a video to help spice up the message—and their inbox—you’ll see greater conversions and click-through rates. Add a saucy and provocative subject line to entice people to open the email and watch your video views soar.

In fact, a study by Experian found that of companies who included GIFs in their emails, 72 percent revealed that their messages have higher transaction-to-click rates.

  1. Vlogs: Vlogs, otherwise known as a video blog, may be the missing component your blog needs to increase traffic and engagement. Like we’ve mentioned earlier, consumers actively choose videos over text to receive information. If you’ve got a great video on cool product features, don’t tell your audience about it…show them.

Just because you used a video on social media doesn’t mean you can’t use that same video on your website or in a blog. Don’t be afraid to use your video content in multiple arenas, when appropriate.

With the invention of sites such as Hulu and Netflix, most of us know the feeling of losing track of an entire day as we binge watch our favorite series. No? What about watching videos of funny cats, product demonstrations, or those funny Buzzfeed compilations? It’s hard to meet anyone these days who doesn’t watch a lot of video, either online, on television, or on their smart phones. If you knew that consumers were spending several hours watching video every day, would you invest in video content marketing? According to research from eMarketer, you may want to carve out a chunk in your marketing budget for video content if you want to keep your brand in front of engaged audiences.

eMarketer recently revealed that consumers are watching 5.5 hours of video content on average and 20 percent of that time is spent watching digital content every day. That’s a lot of air time. Aside from wondering what people do at their jobs all day, it begs the question: how can you get in front of this trend and in front of your target audience?

Another study from LiveClicker found that about 57 percent of retail brands reported that they saw average order values increase when users watched just one video they had produced. Sales also doubled when people watched 10 or more videos.

Video content comes in any forms, including but not limited to pre-roll ads, corporate videos and promos, video blogs, commercials, recruitment videos, question and answer segments, interviews, and product showcases.

Videos are a powerful sales tool because they can give consumers a more comprehensive look into the product, how it works, its features and functionality, which is much more than pictures alone can do.boy playing in the computer

For example, online shoe retailer Zappos understands the power of online videos. For each and every product, Zappos has created product videos that showcase the item, provide a detailed description, and give consumers an up close and personal look at the product they are trying to sell. Consumers are able to visualize the item fitting into their lives, feel more comfortable with the quality of product, and feel confident in their purchase.

Getting consumers to watch a video is the easy part; the trick is to convert them into customers. Your strategy can either make a video nothing more than an entertaining piece or a critical part of your sales toolbox. Be sure the point of your video is clear, there is a definitive call to action, and that it keeps your audience’s attention.
