Over the past several years, video has become an extremely important element of life on the internet. Countless online resources make video content readily available and video is quickly becoming the preferred media of internet users of all ages. Here are some of these staggering statistics:
YouTube has over 1 Billion users
45% of people watch more than an hour of video on Facebook or YouTube every week
Cisco estimates that video traffic will make up more than 80% of all consumer internet traffic in just 4 years
One third of all online activity is spent watching video
Viewers retain 95% of a message when they watch it in a video compared to 10% when reading it.
The average viewer spends 88% more time on a website with video
Video drives a 157% increase in organic traffic from Search Engine Results Pages (SERPs)
Considering these statistics, it’s hard to deny the influence video can have on marketing and it is no surprise that more attorneys are incorporating video into their internet marketing programs. Video marketing offers law firms the following benefits:
Google and other search engines have increasingly favored videos, giving them preferential placement at the top of search engine rankings. Statistics show that sites with high quality videos tend to rank better in the organic search results than sites without any type of video. Also, social media platforms have become more video friendly, promoting video content in ways that help more of their subscribers access to video content. Sundown Legal Marketing helps law firms increase their firm’s brand and reach by creating high-end video content that connects and engages with prospective clients.
A law firm’s website serves a number of purposes and provides multiple benefits. For most, the number one purpose of a website is business development, directing potential clients to take action (i.e. call the firm, complete a contact form, download a white paper). Video provides a website visitor with something no other content can – A peek into the firm culture and individual attorneys personality. With this insight potential clients will be more likely to contact the firm. Video provides an opportunity to develop rapport before a call is made or a contact form is completed.
One of the greatest struggles that attorneys face when it comes to online marketing is that they are in fact selling themselves, and their expertise, which can often be difficult to translate into easily digestible content. Video provides a law firm, or more importantly an attorney, with the opportunity to display their understanding of the law and their ability to explain the law in terms that anyone can understand. It also provides an opportunity to show a human element. Creating a balance between an expert and “average joe” is important, as many people are intimidated by their lack of understanding of the law and the possible outcomes of their legal matter. We want to hire an attorney that is just like us, someone we can talk to, someone we can trust, but we want someone who knows how to provide unmatched legal services.
