If you think YouTube and Instagram are just for 20-something beauty bloggers and influencers, think again!
Over 40% of auto shoppers use video to narrow down their options and ultimately choose what they purchase.
With the right automotive video marketing tactics behind you, you can capture a new audience, show off what’s great about your company – and have fun while doing it.
You don’t need expensive equipment to get started, you just need a plan (and some standards!)
There’s a lot of poor video content out there that isn’t doing anyone in the industry any favors – but that means there’s plenty of space for you to make a positive impression on potential customers.
Video marketing helps you connect with your audience, showcase your products/services and boost your SEO efforts.
Search engine optimization isn’t just about blogging – video content can propel your website and social media accounts to the top of Google too.
When people are searching for specific products or ‘how to’ guides, Google knows the average web user wants something easy to understand and quick to digest – so it actively promotes video search results as the answer to common search queries.
So, when you post that 2 minute video on how to install your most popular product, or what happens during a tune-up, Google will show your video as an authority to people searching for that content on their search engine.
The result? People that are looking for what you do/what you sell will visit your website to learn more about you (and hopefully ultimately hire you/buy from you).
This can be particularly useful for auto shops trying to attract local customers with local SEO.
