Nobody likes to read 1000 words on your website filled with your own praises, even you won’t. And what do people like? Something that doesn’t bore them out of their wits? A VIDEO.
Videos change the whole perspective of your business, rather than reading for 10 minutes, people can watch a 2 minute creative video and make up their mind. It saves their time and shows that you were willing to go further to show your creativity. This hooks up your customer. A video actually markets your brand the best.
Not only this, stats say that video marketing will make up 80% of the total marketing by 2019. A catchy video will gain you more customers than an old-school SEO technique will.
Social Media Advertising
Increased and rapid changes in Facebook’s algorithm, there’s no way you can trust the popularity of your social media posts.

Page boosts, post boosts and selecting your target audience with detailed stats served by Instagram and Facebook has changed the fate of many marketing companies. Why? Why the fate changed? Because people could see the future, they could see the benefits of reaching out to a larger audience, to a younger audience. It’s not too late now, this technique will never go out of style, and you will never run out of revenue.
