Valuable Ways Audio And Video Messages Can Build Trust 🤝🏼

Why Use Audio And Video Messages

Are You Missing Out?

Sharing content is great, but if you’re relying solely on the written word and static images, you’re missing out on chances to build trust with your potential and existing customers. We are social creatures created to pay attention to audible and visual clues to help us get to know someone better. There’s power in using audio and video. They are great tools that will generate trust like nothing else.Helping you connect with your audience and help them feel the emotion.

What do you think your podcast could/would do for your brand when you dream big?

You’ll always focus on creating audience-appealing content. Podcasting and audience appeal is an excellent way to increase your conversions!

I know you’ve heard that your audience has to know, like, and trust you before they will consider becoming paying customers. They get to know you through your written content and social media presence. 

  • They may like what you have to offer and what you’re sharing and may even be impressed by your expertise. But earning enough trust to pull out that wallet and make a purchase from you can be tricky. That’s where your face and your voice come in.

We pick up many clues when we hear someone’s voice and even more when we see them speak. 

That’s why audio and video messages are so important in your marketing. Don’t be afraid to use them. 

     Start with audio if a video is intimidating. You can start your own podcast or offer to become a guest on other people’s episodes.

  • The significant benefit of being a guest speaker is getting in front of their audience, which can help give you additional exposure. 
  • Then you’ll want to share and repurpose any programs you’ve been asked to participate in.
  • Another fun audio option is to ask your newsletter subscribers or social media followers to ask you questions. Schedule a few minutes each week to record your answers and share them far and wide.

The same is true for video. Q&A’s are a great place to start. You could teach the steps of how to do something or chat about a topic of interest to them related to your products and services. You can do it as a Facebook Video, post it on YouTube, or engage on Instagram.

  • Repurpose and share your video and work on your blog/website, your email list of subscribers, and other social media sites you engage your audience.
  • Use your video on your landing page. Or just a part of it on a landing page to help with better conversions.
  • I like having a short intro video at the beginning of my blog posts. Then I can share the video ad link to bring people into reading that post.

Many people aren’t big on reading and like to summarize what you’re offering. Sometimes seeing is believing!

  • Write a blog post that can interact and tell more about the topics in your video.
    • My short intro videos for a blog post go over quickly what the post is about. The idea is to pull them in to stay around a bit longer and read the post. 
  • Even better, do all of the above. 

There’s so much you can do with the tech you already have. Start with your smartphone and give it a try. Pick one video or audio strategy and expand over time.

Here’s a bonus.

Combining consistency by sharing a weekly video message can grow your audience’s trust even more quickly. And by asking your audience to like, comment, and share, you’ll boost your reach and audience. As a bonus, here’s something to think about. 

  • And be consistent! It’s a powerful strategy you should give a consistent shot at today!

Video Marketing: Are You Missing Out?

Here are four reasons you should invest in video for your business: 

#1 Digital marketing is constantly evolving, and if you don’t adapt to it, you risk getting left behind.

Video has become popular during the past few years. It has quickly become the most popular form of internet content, becoming a larger and larger part of marketing plans for companies. 

How does strategy fit in?

Video marketing might seem intimidating if you’re new to it, but luckily it’s easier than ever to create an engaging video. Almost every smartphone has an HD camera, and plenty of free and affordable editing apps allow you to create professional-looking videos.

Still wondering if video marketing is right for your business? 

  • Here are more inclusive reasons why you should start making videos today.

#2 Videos increase conversions

An enticing headline, eye-catching images, and benefit-rich copy go a long way toward boosting your conversions. But a study by Techjury showed that adding a video to your landing page can improve conversions by up to 86%.

  • Here’s a great strategy for your next landing page, or even updating the landing pages you already have and sharing them again with your audience…

    Think about and do this: After you’ve finished writing all your copy, summarize your offer in a short two to three-minute video and place it at the top of the page.

This way, visitors who aren’t big on reading can quickly understand the benefits and how to take the next step. And those who want to learn more can scroll down and read your copy.

#3 Google loves video

If you’re trying to rank higher in that Google search engine, then one of the best things you can do is start adding videos to your landing pages.

In indexing and ranking your content, Google mostly uses your mobile version of the content for indexing and ranking that your audience will use in search engine results because many internet users prefer video or written content. Because of that, it makes sense that they’re more likely to rank your landing pages that include a video.

  • In fact, according to Moovly, putting a video about your product/services on your landing page is 53 times more likely to show up in a first-page Google search if it has a video.

#4 No matter what stage you’re at, you can build that know, like, and trust factor with your audience. 

Share your industry expertise through your podcasts or videos as you share and repurpose your content.

 

It’s True, Being Consistent Is Your Key Secret To Earning Trust 👍

  • Consistency allows you to establish outreach and trust and provide services effectively and profitably.
  • Being consistent helps you achieve your goals, establish habits, and helps to show others that you are trustworthy.
  • Being consistent helps to build habits you want to grow.

Consistency in your daily work helps you succeed in your business, similar to how consistency in physical exercise keeps you in shape.

  • Your constant show of honesty and integrity does earn others’ trust and respect. That is what you like and want!
  • This means that your honesty and integrity influence the way others see and trust you.
  • Take time to listen to them and engage. Helping to encourage others in doing great things.
  • Showing your interest does help inspire people to step up.
  • Keeping your promises shows others that you respect them and also what you expect of them.
    • They are more likely to treat you respectfully, developing additional confidence.

Listening can also help validate the trust that you are building with your audience.

  • Even something as simple as warmly acknowledging someone’s presence or welcoming them often builds trust.

Whether that connection is through a meeting, handing your business card over, client visits, a phone call, or even the bill you sent out. Read more

Create A Sales Message to Attract Clients

What is the function of having a clear sales message?

Have you checked your informational content messaging to ensure you share what your audience is searching for and want to see?

How is your content and messaging influencing your audience to want more?

  • Take a minute to fine-tune and modify to ensure each piece of your sales funnel is on point. I know, that’s easier stated than done.
  • It can be tough to objectively check your creations and see what’s functioning and what isn’t.
    • When creating your sales page or a whole sales funnel, it’s always excellent to double-check your data.
      • Ex: Is your ideal audience engaging, and are you seeing conversions as anticipated? Otherwise, there’s something off.
    • See if you can determine what it is. Make your adjustments and examine once again. Did the numbers improve? Make notes of any adjustments and develop your messaging based on what seems more attractive to your audience.
  • One option is to have somebody audit your content sales messages. Preferably this will be someone who represents your perfect target market. Locate a good friend, coworker, or perhaps an existing customer you have a relationship with to check through it and provide feedback.
    • What made good sense?
    • What didn’t make good sense?
    • Look for anything in your content that made them not want to purchase or even sign up for your free offer.

How to Reach Your Social Media Goals in 2022

Defining Your Content With Your Monthly Theme

Want to get more work done and more quickly?

Constantly having to change hats and not having a plan really does stop the work that is fresh on your mind.

Create Your Social Media Content Strategy so you can use it over and over in:

  • Your blog
  • YouTube

use in many different ways.

Content strategies aren’t just for blogs, websites, and product descriptions. Content stratgies are marketing and are critical for social media and your business success.

BUT…What are Content Strategy Themes for and do they work?

How about thinking of Content Strategy Themes:
As buckets of your ideal topics that your niche loves and that you are in business for sharing. Now you have a guide for creating and planning your content.

I know (really well!) that when you can sit, stay focused, and finish a task as you have planned you not only feel great about it… you get instant gratification!

Because when your content is up and ready you’re done and ready to move on. 

But the interruptions seem to be intentional because all of a sudden you remember something, like ‘uh-oh’ I need to post in my group, page, Instagram, etc, taking time away from your planned project.

When you have a system you follow, you can take a look at it being all done for the day, week, and even working into the month of growing your business, and it feels like such a release of the ‘have tos’ as you’re getting it done!

Making life and business so much more fun!

You can also get your pieces of content ready to go based on a theme.
