Unlike any other presentation I’ve given before on this topic, I will be questioning if a social media component of a marketing plan for small businesses makes sense. For small businesses, it is enough of a challenge to balance day-to-day sales with the longer-term marketing. Recognizing the commonality among all businesses is a limitation of resources – time and financing – how should a small business prioritize the available channels of marketing?

Should be a great event!

Social Media and Video Marketing Thoughts

September 28, 2010 Leave a comment

According to the American Marketing Association, Social Marketing has never been more influential than it is now and it must be part of your marketing strategy.  In fact, did you know that:

  • More than 50% of the 500 million Facebook users log on to Facebook every day. In total, they spend over 700 billion minutes per month on the service
  • People are watching 2 billion videos a day on YouTube; every minute, 24 hours of video is uploaded to the service
  • Users spend 22.7% of their time online on social networking sites

It’s probably safe to say most of their attention is geared toward; what video can I watch?

This is where video marketing comes in. What do you offer your guests in terms of videos related to your property or guestrooms? Start a library now of videos from your hotel. Don’t worry if they are not completely professional. They don’t have to be. People can see the “real” deal this way and you gain their trust.

Online travel shoppers will appreciate the honest way in which you present your Hotel and will probably stop shopping and start spending. Show all of your room types and what they have to offer so the guest can make an informed decision and perhaps rent an upper tier room. Create special promotions on your facebook and other social network pages and increase your Search Engine results. Most of all listen to what is working out there and don’t be afraid to get started with something new and daring.

Stay on top of the latest from the marketing community by visiting popular sites and opting in for their email newsletters. One source is Market Thought Leaders.

What is holding you back?

“Video is on a meteoric rise that shows no signs of stopping—heck, YouTube took 4.5 years to reach a billion views a day, and then doubled it in the next eight months to two billion.  Video isn’t a trend or a fad.  This isn’t a temporary crush on video, where the Internet citizens are going to wake up one day and say, ‘You know, I’m tired of video, let’s go back to just audio,’” according to REELSEO, the online video marketer’s guide.

Everyone these days agrees that video is a valuable component to your sales and marketing. It has also become clear that there is a learning curve for sales and marketing professionals to incorporate video, and furthermore, that YouTube might not be the best platform for your organization to use.
