As the information passed is quick and at the same time the user does not have to read anything. Thus video viewing becomes a leisure activity with minimal efforts from the part of the user. Now-a-days companies invest considerably in making attractive small videos and to market it over the Internet.

Viral Marketing: Viral Marketing deals with the creation of text or email message, video clip or audio clip that excites the young and old alike and infusing it into the highest searched and utilized social networking and media sites such as Facebook and YouTube so that it gets shared by friends instantly. A recent example of the viral marketing is a movie song “Kolaveri Di” which went viral all through India. It was widely spread via You Tube (Social Media platform) and Facebook (Social Networking platform).

Email Marketing: For this, you will have to first build a database by offering incentives or giving something free of cost – It could be an e-book on any interesting topic and in return could ask the people to fill up a basic form containing their names and valid email addresses. Once you have a good list, you can prepare a professional newsletter with special discounts or offers and send out to them. It could be done during festival time like “Thanksgiving Day”, “Christmas”, “Easter” etc. or it could be done whenever you need to push up the sales by offering special seasonal discounts or gifts randomly. Email marketing if done efficiently, brings in measurable results.

If you execute the above listed web marketing strategies effectively, it would really boost up your business. Ideally, taking the help of a professional Internet Marketing Company is highly recommended.
