According to Houston Chronicle, “Video marketing is but one option you have available as a tool to promote your business. Understanding the power of video marketing may help you to see how video marketing can be beneficial to your business and a good use of your marketing dollars.”
Moreover, Videos are easier to share over social media; it allows your website to rank higher on search engines, Video marketing helps to improve your brand, allows you to seem more engaging and is a great way to educate your parents about your program.
Today I want to share some video marketing tips with you:
- Consider making a video of the kids doing activities in your program (with the parents permission). Simply record the video on your cell phone and be sure that it is no longer than five minutes and upload to your social media pages once a week or even add to your website.
- If you are not camera shy; practice making 1-minute videos of yourself talking about your childcare business or giving parents a tour of your childcare space.
- You can also make cool videos of your program, by using photos with Animoto.com. I love this website and I use it to make videos of my Child Care Center!
- You may also want to create a You Tube Channel to upload videos of your program. YouTube is one of the top 3 websites as of January 2013 and it is great way to gain more business exposure.
Are you ready to start making videos? If not, practice first. I actually love recording my voice and adding pictures to the Video presentation with the Window Movie Maker on my computer. I would love to see your videos, so be sure to share!
