Why You Need Video on Your Landing Page

Content Marketing, Marketing Tips, Video Tips, Web Videos,

If you’re looking to generate conversion for your new or existing website it is imperative that you have an attention grabbing landing page. Think about the number of times you’ve visited websites and have left just as quickly because the landing page is not engaging or has too much text to read through before actually finding what you’re looking for. You want your landing page to stand out from the crowd and make a great first impression. The most professional way to show your brand’s image and personality is through engaging video content. We’ve mentioned it before but can’t emphasize the importance of video content enough, below are four reasons why you should be incorporating video content into your marketing strategy.

Peaks Interest

Your brand’s first impression begins the second a potential or existing client visits your landing page. With the dwindling attention spans of today, you only have a couple seconds to engage your audience and hold their attention. If your clients have to read through long form walls of text in order to find what they are looking for or to find out about your brand chances are they will leave the site before they even make it to the important content. The goal is to grab their attention and have them stay on your site, the best way to do this is by informing them with an engaging video that will keep them on your site and interested in your brand.

Having a good quality professional video shows that your brand is legitimate which will immediately gain the trust of potential clients. While the lack of video content is detrimental to your company’s legitimacy, having amateurish video content can be equally hurtful. Not all video content strategies are created equally so it’s important that your company uses professional video that suits your brand in order to see optimal results. The quality of video plays a big role in how clients react to your brand, the professional quality of your video reflects the professional quality of your brand in the eyes of your clients

Elements such as music, motion graphics, actors and captivating storytelling contribute to the connection between brand and client as well as provide your videos with that x-factor when it comes to converting business
