Using visual content is the most powerful tool to use to engage your viewers on your social media platforms. It even helps you and your brand stand out from the rest because most of the content published online each day is written content.

Video has grown by leaps and bounds. In fact, Facebook stated: “Since June 2014, Facebook has averaged more than 1 billion video views every day,” the company says in a blog post. That’s a lot of videos and a lot of people viewing.

Grabbing your viewers attention is more critical than ever considering most viewers are researching online now before purchasing.

The old saying…facts tell, but stories sell really comes into play when you can tell your story using the visual of video.

So where should your marketing emphasis be? On showing your viewers. And how can you show your viewers…through video marketing. Whether it’s pay per click, click through, social media, content marketing, or email marketing, video should be included in your day to day marketing strategy.

Go ahead and block out your vacation time, holiday time, special events….even possible day trips. Get it on the planner. Then work your schedule around your planned time off. Work your business, don’t let your business work you.

2. Implementing Time Saving Tools
Social Media and Online Marketing can really be a time drain if you’re not careful. There are many time saving tools available for keeping you on track. Try using a kitchen timer for setting a specific amount of time to a project and when the buzzer goes off…move to the next project.

I met Livvie Matthews online a few years ago. I was following her on Facebook. We would comment and like each other’s posts. She would post social media tips that I began using for my business page. I reached out to Livvie and she encouraged me to do a little at a time and said I was on the right track with how I was doing my online marketing. She provided me with so much information. I was so excited to use what she shared with me. Livvie is very knowledgeable in helping businesses grow their online presence using social media and online marketing. Her programs teach businesses how to leverage their appearance and connections on social media for client attraction and more online visibility. I encourage all business owners to listen and learn from Livvie Matthews. www.JillCoonInc.com
