Let’s be honest, most of us are using social media. Whether you love or hate the platform, the fact is, over 70% of Americans have a social media account.
Video on Facebook, and online in general, is becoming more prevalent and more engaging. On average, people are watching 16 hours of video online each week, and this number is continuing to climb.
Facebook and Consumer Interest
Consumers are taking notice of videos on Facebook — whether it’s clip of a model wearing a fashionable jacket, or a compelling video of a vacuum cleaning a filthy floor — and these types of posts are driving engagement.
According to Wyzowl, 84% of people say they’ve been convinced to buy a product or service by watching a brand’s video. Marketers for businesses of all sizes are catching on and incorporating video into their marketing strategy.
Facebook Live Video
At Wisconn Valley Media Group, we offer a simple tool for businesses to reach potential customers by combining the power of Facebook and video through sponsored Facebook Live posts.
When a business owner broadcasts a sponsored Facebook live video on our news social pages, they can reach a massive and engaged audience. We are able to reach a large number of people through social media, totaling close to 100,000 followers between the Kenosha News, Journal Times, and Lake Geneva Regional News Facebook pages. Your Facebook Live video on our page has the potential to reach this audience, and then some!
What does it include?
Facebook live broadcasts from Wisconn Valley Media Group include perks and benefits above and beyond what a business would see from doing their own Facebook Live on their business page. These benefits include:
- Professional equipment used, including microphones and the latest mobile technology for a clearer, high-quality Facebook Live broadcast.
- A 3-10 minute video at the time and place of a business’s choosing broadcast to followers of our Facebook page(s). With Facebook Live, followers are notified that a new broadcast has started, which increases viewership and engagement.
- We provide total transparency. We are able to provide analytics from the viewership and engagement of your video so you know exactly what worked or didn’t work.
- Additional boosts from our marketing team to help a video trend.
We will also provide the video file to you to use in any way you would like to promote your business! Adding a video to a landing page can increase conversions by 80% and viewers retain 95% of a message when it is in the form of a video, so including video in your marketing as much as possible is always a good idea.
