There are a couple things happening in the world of marketing that virtually every business needs to understand.

Online Video is the new king.

It’s the king of advertising . . . now reaching more customers every day than TV, radio and print media.

And, it’s the king of consumer education . . . now (by far) the preferred choice of consumers and business people for product research and analysis.

The best way to understand this is to examine your own behavior.  When you want to learn about something, what do you do?  If you’re like most of us, you go to Google, type in a search term and then find a website that looks like it has the information you want.  Then, you click on the website and try to find quick text information that answers your question such as “how much will it cost to purchase PowerPoint software?”  Then, if you want any more detailed information, such as “I need a basic understanding of PowerPoint and how it works”, then you will look for a video on the website to explain this.  That is Online Video.  Or, how many of you just bypass Google altogether and go straight to YouTube, type in your search term there, and start watching videos?  There’s a reason Google purchased YouTube in 2006.

We observed what was happening with Online Video about 5 years ago and started incorporating it into our user support and education.  One example of this is the videos located at The Quickest Way To Learn InsMark support platform.  (As an aside, we strongly suggest that anyone using the InsMark software watch these videos.)

So, what does the explosion in Online Video mean for you?

It means that you have to seriously consider adding Online Video as part of your overall marketing strategy.  And, then this begs the following two questions:

1)  How can you produce video that your target customers want to watch?
2)  How will that video increase your product sales and net profits?

We think we’ve found a fantastic solution that answers both of the questions above.  In short, you can cost effectively leapfrog to the major-leagues of Online Video for your chosen target customer demographic (with distribution of your video content both nationally and in your local market). We will explain all of this more fully during our webinar later this week (see below to learn more).

Important Note:  During the webinar, we will also be offering attendees a special arrangement where if you commit to using InsMark presentations in your consumer videos, you will then receive up to 5 hours of FREE technical support help from InsMark’s video experts.  This could come in handy for any number of reasons (especially for anyone that isn’t that familiar with Online Video).  For example, our experts can help you learn how to set up your business YouTube account, upload videos, and then optimize your videos for Google and other search engines.

Anyway, don’t miss this webinar event!
