Adding Video to your Website

VideoIf you’re a small business owner, you’ve likely heard the motto “content is king” to describe the importance of content on your website. And while written content is effective for many audiences, visual marketing is an even more powerful tool to increase customer interaction.

In today’s digital world, more and more people shop, work, and communicate online. While this is convenient, it means that we do not interact on a personal level. The use of video to connect to your audience can be the closest thing to a face-to-face interaction. Keep the attention of visitors coming to your site with short videos (30 seconds - 1:30 min).  A short video promo or video clip on a topic of interest is a great way to get the users attention before they move on to a different website. With an effective video message, the user might even stay on your site a little longer or be called to action... "Buy now!", "Register now!".  Using a video to showcase your brand’s personality helps visitors on your website get a better sense of who you are and what you stand for, emotionally connecting with your customer and keeping them coming back.

There’s no doubt about it, video is an important part of content marketing and it’s only going to become more essential. Consider these tips for utilizing video to promote your product/industry:

  • Testimonials of Real Customers
  • Demonstrate your Product
  • Introduce your Employees
  • Tour your place of business
  • Promote a Sales Event
  • Video Tutorials - How To use Products

Adding High Quality Graphics to your Website

High Quality graphicsThe web design industry evolves every year to stay inspiring and relevant. The days of tiny pictures and dated backgrounds are over. If your site has not been revamped for several years, you may need to rethink both your website design and content.  Graphics are a great place to start!  High-quality imagery can make an emotional connection with your customer!

According to a recent Forbes Magazine article, "No matter how good your product is, you must present it in a clean, professional and most important natural way. Imagery is one of the strongest element in any form of design making an emotional connection with your customer so you should pay incredible attention to what imagery you use to represent your brand."

Before investing a large amount of money on high-quality graphics that you may never add to your website, it is important to do research and compare different companies that offer authentic licensed graphics. Stock Photo is affordable and easy to purchase with lots of variety of imagery and sizes. A few great resources to begin your search are listed below:


Another option is to take your own photos or hire a professional photographer to take pictures of your place of business, staff, products or service offering.

After you have found the perfect images, it is important to make sure you have photos that match the content of your pages. Remember, quality photos help enhance a website and "bring your site to life".
