In addition, video marketing allows brands to portray themselves as authentically as possible while also providing information efficiently and effectively.

Over the last 12 years, Ivan has created and syndicated videos about the current state of Los Angeles residential real estate market, the different neighborhoods of LA, the homes he is selling, and much more. These videos enabled Ivan to gain more awareness for his brand by adhering to social media’s search algorithms and solidifying himself as an expert of Los Angeles real estate.
What is Video Marketing?
Video marketing is a tool that integrates audiovisuals into your content strategy to achieve the different objectives of your marketing plan. Compelling video content is based on the idea that you create to fulfill your viewer’s interests. Therefore, not only does your brand need to satisfy a customer’s need, but it also has to communicate that message in a gripping way. If done correctly, video will strategically help you sell a product or service, spread knowledge, entertain your viewers, explain the qualities of what you sell, and help your customers better use your product.
On average, people spend about 1.3 seconds per post on social media, meaning attention spans are becoming shorter and shorter on average. As a result, static images and text are becoming less attractive than videos, making video’s audiovisual components more likely to entertain the viewer. Therefore, if you want to get more engagement, video will have your audience’s attention for an average of five times longer.
Google, the most used search engine, uses its algorithm to pull results for all kinds of queries from around the web. Google’s algorithm favors video content as they understand that video is the most preferred type of content by its users. YouTube, owned by Google, has become the second most popular search engine, and it only houses video content.
Over the years Ivan Estrada has learned that video is the preferred form of media by consumers due to its sensory attributes and the preferred form of media by search engine algorithms. By understanding this, Ivan found the opportunity to integrate video into his marketing strategy, gaining a competitive advantage in his industry.
