Web video runs the gamut from entertainment and news to brand and product promotion. More and more, smart brands are increasing the stickiness of their sites and inspiring brand loyalty by offering how-to videos that teach consumers about new products or offer new ways to enjoy older products. It’s the brand equivalent of lending a helping hand.
Given this fact, if you haven’t already, now seems like a good time to start thinking about how to approach the use of video for your site.
The good news is, producing online videos for your site need not be intimidating (see LC post 1/12/2011). The key to success is to be engaging, informative and brief.
