Video used to be nearly impossible to use on the average web site. Loading time took too long and files were too large to upload effectively. Today, video has become a reality in the web site world. Adding a video to your site can help convey what your company or organization is all about, or spotlight a certain product you’re trying to sell.
With the widespread success of Facebook, Vimeo and YouTube, people are also featuring other people’s videos on their web sites, blogs, homepage and more.
There are a number of types of videos that are available: Quick time Movies, Windows Media Player Files, AVI’s, the online videos on the many video sharing sites, all which work on the majority of web browsers if you embed them correctly.
If you do not want someone to be able to download your video, for whatever reason, then embed the video. Certain situations may include that type of situation, when you’ve got people who paid for a video marketing course. You don’t want them to be able to share or download.
Now, Vimeo and even YouTube have settings that keep people from sharing or embedding, so these two options are still the best, as you don’t have to store the videos on your server and wait for load time.
I recommend uploading your company’s videos to You Tube and then embedding them into your web site. This makes 100 % of your visitors be able to view your video, even on smartphones and tablets. It also provides double the exposure for your videos, as it will be seen in You Tube search results when properly configured with proper keywords in the video’s title, description and keywords. Videos are now being shown in organic Google search results, which helps promote your video across the search engines. If you need someone to help you create your video, I can recommend someone, just ask me!
