Video Email....The End is Nigh!

Video Email for Marketing is actually booming.Company's and Websites have Video content, but what are they doing

Let us consider what and how company’s are using video content for at the moment.


Most businesses will do 2 things with their content:

1) Embed it on their website (this will be either uploaded to their server or embeded from a Hosting Platform such as YouTube or Vimeo)

2) Upload to a hosting Platform such as YouTube or Vimeo for example.


Both these solutions are great, however they both rely on traffic landing on their website and actually finding the video and then watching it,or, hope prospects/customers chance upon it on YouTube.


Everyone understands the importance and benefits to be gained by having Video Content or at least should do. Both of the traditional usages rely totally upon visitors finding the videos. A recent popular route has been Google Ad Words for Video, there is nothing wrong with this approach assuming you want to pay large amounts of money for every click through.
