Google + videos = Huge SEO
Valuable content on videos can dramatically boost your SEO and google rankings. Ideally, videos need to be as short as possible whilst using as many keywords and providing as much valuable content as possible. Videos that perform great will therefore target more of your audience and dramatically increase CRO an ROI.
A website is 53 times more likely to reach the front page of Google, if it includes video on its web page. Additionally, your brand becomes more credible through the use of strategic and appropriate content. Above all, brands need traffic to flow to their website to create additional revenue.
Video content needs to be professional, succinct and relatable to stop traffic bouncing off your website. A 15 minute long, shaky and grainy video shot on a mobile phone isn’t going to cut it. The first 3-7 seconds is where videos see the highest drop-off rates. Meaning that it’s important that your video is filled with professionalism and quality right from the start.
