Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) August 08, 2013
Starting August 1st, Clue Video, a pioneer in local business video marketing, is offering their business class service free to new businesses. Clue Video is based out of Florida and has seen a viral growth rate since it opened a few months ago.
Online video has become an ever more powerful medium for businesses large and small. In the US alone, over 100 million people are watching video online which is a staggering increase of over 40% since 2010. The trend towards a nation who wants to consume video does not stop there. Of those 100 Million, 54.6 million people viewed videos from their mobile devices.
For businesses however, it is more than the fact that people are looking at videos, it is what comes next that really matters. In todays internet crazed business landscape, there seems like an endless string of places that you should be spending advertising dollars. From phonebook ads to billboards, PPC, PPA, Facebook, twitter, google+… The list seems to get longer and more confusing every day. There is however a preverbal light at the end of the tunnel for small business owners, and that light is the glow coming from the screens of their consumers watching videos about their businesses.
Video seems to be floating to the surface as a major player in the way that consumers use the internet to find, research and identify those products and services that they are interested in learning more about. In fact, nearly 46% of people say that seeing a product of service mentioned in an online video would encourage them to seek out more information. This is a staggering number when compared to more traditional forms of advertising such as print advertising or billboards.
In a 2012 survey, video was the 6th most popular content marketing tactic with over 70% of marketers creating a video and nearly 60% producing live video in the form of webinar and webcasts.
Clue Video, a local service that is giving YouTube and Vimeo a run for their money when it comes to local business advertising, has created a platform that allows those looking for services and those providing services in local markets to get together. The premise of our platform is to allow buyers and sellers to get together in a place where the focus is helping shoppers find the perfect provider of the service they want. No do it yourself videos, trailers for movies or clips of people crashing stuff. We are all about local businesses and local shoppers. Period. Mike Safrin
