Chances are, you get a dozen calls or emails each day offering you SEO services as a “solution” to your sales and marketing problems.
But the funny thing is…
… SEO is not any more of a solution than getting fit is to an athlete.
Because SEO is actually meaningless by itself.
Getting to the top of Google is not an SEO challenge…
… it is a CONTENT challenge.
Google wants to see good content, in a variety of mediums that is highly related to the searcher.
If you can provide that content, most of the SEO battle is won already.
Of course, there are many valid reasons to hire an SEO expert, such as title optimization, meta tags, building incoming links and all that other boring stuff…
… but if you don’t have content to actually optimize, then it’s all just hot air and empty promises.
But with video… Video is the type of content that Google loves the most. In fact, you’re roughly 50 times more likely to get your video to the top of Google than you are a blog post or other written article.
And if you’re not sure where to start, or what type of video to create for your Video Marketing campaign (or you simply don’t have the time or energy to worry about it) then Local Business Images would be very pleased to not only help to get you going with video. But we will enable you to see actual results using Video Marketing within days!
As a fellow small business owner, I know how it feels to hear all the latest and greatest fads for marketing your business, but video is one rapidly growing trend that can no longer be called a “fad.” Now small businesses are cashing in. But what makes video so powerful, particularly when it comes to marketing your business?
1. First impressions count. Sadly, a business card is not enough anymore. Flyers and brochures are great, but can be expensive. Local networking still works but it’s time consuming. Video lets us be everywhere at once, and is the next best thing to being there in person.
2. Pictures speak louder than words. According to Dr. James McQuivey of Forrester Research, one minute of video can replace 1.8 Million Words of text, or 3,600 web pages. If you write an average of one web page an hour, it would take you 150 days of writing to achieve the same impact of one minute of video. Humans are multisensory creatures (sight, sound, touch, taste and smell) and because video taps into two of these – sight and sound – it’s naturally more engaging that text alone. There’s more; through evolution, humans are also biologically programmed to detect and pay attention to moving objects as a way to protect themselves from danger. Video is full of moving objects, thus making them much harder to ignore.
3. Video gets you found. Did you know that 70% of marketers are optimizing video to get found in search engines? That’s because video is 53 times more likely to produce a first-page search result than traditional techniques. Source: ReelSEO
These facts are just the tip of the iceberg, but they paint a clear picture; if you’re trying to deliver a message and stand out from the crowd, nothing comes close to the power of video.
7 easy ideas for awesome videos
1) Product demos
If you have a product that needs visual proof that it works, or that needs a little extra explanation for non-technical types, then what better way to do it than with video?
2) Tutorial Videos
Tutorial videos are a great way to showcase your business expertise and knowledge. Show potential customers how to solve a problem visually and audibly, and you’ll win their trust and help steer them towards your products.
3) Product Knowledge & FAQs
What do your customers frequently ask you at the checkout? What’s the biggest question you receive when you pick up the phone from a potential new client? Answer these questions on video and stick that video on your website’s home page, and you’ll reduce your workload and generate more leads who are one step closer to buying.
4) Behind the Scenes Videos
When people aren’t familiar with your company or procedures, a behind-the-scenes event can help build trust with potential customers. This is particularly effective for cosmetic surgeons, dentists, etc, where people may be wary on arrival. This video could be showcased on your website, sent to via email to new prospects or even played in waiting rooms and reception areas.
5) Before and After Videos
Nothing shows potential customers the value of your product or service more effectively than real life results. Before-and-after videos connect with viewers because they can directly relate to the person in the video, and can see the benefits once they’ve used the product or service, giving them the chance to put themselves in that person’s shoes. It’s also the most direct proof that your product or service works as promised.
6) Customer Testimonials
Do your customers frequently leave your office, store, or website, with a big smile on their face? Then why not capture it on camera? Right when they’re feeling great about you, ask these happy customers what they loved about you and your products and services, and why they would recommend you to others. Capture on camera and put it on your website so other potential customers can feel confident about you too.
7) Straight up sales pitch
The simplest way to attract new customers is to highlight their current problem and why you’re the best option to help solve it. A short 30 second video can achieve this, which can then be used for paid or free video ads, or uploaded to your website’s home page.

The great thing about video marketing is that you can create a simple video and get it ranked within hours of uploading it to YouTube.
Here is one that we created for one of our clients to promote Codelock. A digital lock that replaces the need for keys.
The video is simple but it will get the City Locksmiths on Southampton Contact number on page one of Google… In fact it already has!!!!
The important thing is to get the video seen and contact details out there. Also creating backlinks to the Southampton Locksmiths website www.city-locksmith.biz.
A number of our online clients have asked about the updates to Easy Sketch Pro regarding the launch of Easy Sketck Pro 2
The main update is the fact that now with Easy Sketch Pro 2 you can not only work with photo’s, images and graphics etc… You can now easily work with video. We have created a simple demo here…
Please note that the hand was created by Local Business Images and can be downloaded in our members area
Although it was only launched last week, we have already started to put the Easy Sketch Pro 2 through its paces and it is well worth the upgrade. Basically it is just as easy to use and anyone who has the earlier version will have no trouble in the transition to Easy Sketch Pro 2.
As creators of videos for our Local Business Clients we are always eager to keep up with the latest software, techniques and ideas. To date I can honestly say that using the combination of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premier Elements ll, Powerpoint and Easy Sketch Pro 2 we can do almost anything that our clients ask of us and our creativity.
We use Photoshop to create our custom frames and backgrounds for our clients. Adobe Premier Elements is used to add soundtracks and adjust the timing etc. Although to be honest we could manage without this software. It’s just what we are used to. That brings us to PowerPoint which is already on most computers anyway. Add Easy Sketch Pro 2 and your creativity is unleashed.
In fact if you are making whiteboard animations, simple animations and integrated video animations then Easy Sketch Pro is all that you require. It’s all down to what you are used to.
As our clients are dependent on us, almost as we are them, if they ask what software we use or could we recommend a video creation software package I always recommend Easy Sketch Pro because of its simplicity. We still get work from our clients through creating custom and specific images to use with the software. Also the Easy Sketch Pro 2 is very easy to create graphics and images for. And you do get a great image, background and soundtrack library included in the software package.
If you are looking for a Local Video Production and SEO service please contact us here… If you are simply looking for a simple Video Creation Package that gives Professional results try the Easy Sketch Pro 2 here…
