The majority of affiliate marketers out there seem to be of the belief that marketing is going to be all about video in the future. In fact, even now video marketing is a major component of just about any online advertising campaign. On this page we want to talk to you a little bit about the advantages and strategies behind a video-based approach to Forex affiliate marketing.
Did you know that YouTube attracts one billion unique visitors each and every month? The only site in the world which boasts more than that this is Facebook. We already know just how important social media is to the world of marketing, and yet very few people have opened up their eyes to the benefits of Forex video marketing. That little statistic there however does prove that the market is there for people who want to watch videos.
Here’s an example of one of our videos for Plus 500 Forex
Why videos work for affiliates:
Videos are naturally engaging. The vast majority of people out there do not want to read through heaps and heaps of text in order to get the gist of what a product or service is all about. Text tells you nothing and it is cumbersome to read on a screen. People want a ton of information delivered in a rather succinct manner. Video is able to do this. We are willing to wager that the vast majority of people out there who have made a purchase of a product in the past will have watched at least one video on their product.
A video gives you a lot of information. Not only is there speech (which is a lot easier to digest than pages and pages of text), but you also have that visual engagement which seeks to draw people in and keep them watching. It is easy to lose somebody’s attention with even the most thrilling of text. It is difficult to lose somebody’s attention when they are being engaged on a visual and auditory level. If you can keep people watching those videos then it is going to be a lot easier to make a sale right at the end of it.
How to rank Forex videos:
It is also a great deal easier to get videos found in a competitive niche than it is through a having a website. Firstly; ranking on YouTube is relatively easy if you pay attention to the details. It follows many of the same techniques as standard search engine optimization too (hint: backlinks!). In addition to this; you will find that many Google searches nowadays have videos right at the top of the page, before any of the other links below. People are attracted to those videos. If you are listed there then you will find it easier to make money.
Videos add value to your offer:
Finally; videos can help supplement your text. You will find that there are a lot of top affiliate marketers out there who will combine both text and video on a page nowadays. This gives people options about what they want. People like it when you give them the option with regards to the type of content that they should be using. This will lead to a bigger chance of making a sale (i.e. you are not scaring away people who only like text if you have video, and vice versa)
