Video content is most preferred but what if the nature of business doesn't allow this?

22 replies
You look at FolkD, Reddit and many other platforms, you will see most of the upvotes, views are on videos. This is clear video content is now the preferred form of content. But what about industries where video content is not possible? For example, if you wish to promote any article, you cannot use any video? What's the solution?

    The article is about something so the video is what the article is about

There's nothing interesting in that. So, how to promote it then? It means here video content fails.. then what's the solution?

        You didn't mention promoting article writing services in your initial question.

        Nevertheless, if you can't come up with a creative and interesting way to promote your service in a video (hint: think benefits) then it doesn't say much about your article writing.

        Why do you want to make it dull and monotonous?


        A video of a naked, sexy young woman. Someone not naked, with a quill in his/her hand comes into the shot from the left. Starts writing on the pulchritudinous naked butt your offer.


        All the while, Vangelis' Conquest of Paradise is playing.



        What's dull and monotonous about that?

        I believe you can still promote articles. What about creating a video where you explain to the viewers how your articles can move their ranking to googles fast page? will you not be promoting your writing skills?

          oh yes... good idea.. Sorry for missing your reply.. Indeed it's a good idea. But then it is going for 1 category of article. For instance, perhaps a video for finance articles can do well by this way. But what about medical content? Or travel content? Then such videos can't work I guess. As they may look repetitive.

            You are really set on saying no when you should be saying yes, aren't you.

            The problem is not videos, but your thinking about them.

            Videos can be used to market anything.

            Aa regards repetitive, they are repetitive to your prospects only if they see many of them.

            But if you set your funnels right, someone looking for medical articles, for instance, will never see your videos for financial articles or for bodybuilding artickes or for... so no repetitive anything.

              Perhaps you are right! I actually want to say yes but then overthinking obstructs me. Also, I agree with your point that clients differ with categories, but problem is, if you are putting the videos all together in Youtube channel, then they are viewing similar videos. Even social media hates being monotonous. So, still trying to know what best could be the alternative.

                Seems you're trying to manufacture a problem, or else being deliberately obtuse. Why would you have all your different topic videos in the same YouTube channel?

                Hello webcontent

                Stop "overthinking" and actually do some research and learning on this subject.

                Why do you have to put all the videos together in one channel? If you operate in different niches then the very simple solution is that you create multiple Youtube channels for each niche.

                Cheers

                So don't put them together in the same channel.
                See? Problem solved.

                You can say Yes now.

                  Right that seems to be the right alternative. Though I need to build from the scratch now, but I guess it will help users to benefit more which in turn is useful for organization too.

  • Thing 'bout video is how it makes it easy to soak up Zero Value Soul Cheese like you brain dead.

    Which is why FB is swamped with easy-2-digest cinematic offahs between all the stuff 'bout your bestie's STOOPID CAT an' regurgitated fake nooz fulla crapola eerily pertinent to your ass.

    Back in the day, people flocked in droves to THE TALKIES.

    Now we got 24/7 animated spiel-2-go -- an' while overall quality has plummeted, the lure is prolly more potent than evah before.

    That is bcs people too busy to read ads no more.

    They know they bein' dooped, an' they proved they ain't no airhead ADD type bcs they read Harry Potter without stoppin' to eat.

    Yeah, but out there in the smartphone linkup haze, where infocrapola generates the weirdest kinda currency, prolly you can say in a 30 second vid what mighta once demanded a srs in-depth report -- plus sum responsibility from the intended audience to be at least half a frickin' wake.

    Throw in jiggly boobies, 15s cuts the messagin' even sweeter.

    See Neil Patel how he is using videos in promoting his every blog articles. You can animate a character in explaining your article.
    You should go with omnichannels. I am sure that video is the most superior form of content but still there will be people who like images, podcasts popularity is rising day by day, people love to see infographics. You should be using everything in your single article.

      I do agree with people Neil Patel, since they know how good he is and what useful info he shares. The problem is not when you are popular, rather the point is how to attract people to listen to you. If a normal person with average SEO knowledge is going to make video like Neil Patel, I am sure, no body will be listening.

    Hello webcontent

    Video content is only new if you are YEARS behind using technology in your marketing.

    Software to convert article's to video has been available for years now, we have likely used it for at least the last 6 years or more so it is nothing new to us.

    I can not imagine any industry where you could not use video content. It would be easy to come up with a video for the example you gave on article writing. You just have to be creative.

    We are a large Agency, most of our email prospecting/promotion is now focused on video rather then text. (same with email marketing campaigns for clients) The video content (audio and visual) will get higher click through and hold a viewer's attention and interest far longer than a quick scan through a text based email.

    Using the latest ai text to speech, most do not even know they are listening to ai rather than a human voice.

    Cheers
    Lindy

      Then this is what I was looking for! Even I believe videos are the future ( though, after your reply, I would correct it to present) and that was the point of making this post. I will have a look at the creatives.

        I concur. Video is the thing. Also, you can do a video on virtually everything. I have been unable to think about an industry where you cannot use video.

    I am using the same thread but its related to videos only. Can anyone suggest good video tool? May be animated videos that is available for free ( not talking about Powtoon). Any other that's creative and can be used to make quality and interactive videos?
