    With YouTube being one of the most popular internet sites in the World, it’s a great idea to consider marketing your business through video. This may seem as a new technique for people with limited marketing experience, but it’s a method that’s been used by many marketing companies for a long time. Using videos to market your business allows you to explain in detail about the services you offer in a way you might not have been able to just writing about them. Using video marketing may also lead to a greater deal of trust between business and customer. If a customer can see who they would be talking too or dealing with when buying from you, then there could be a greater sense of trusting. It can also show prove to potential new customers that you a real business.

    Creating marketing videos for your own business can be a lot easier than it sounds, as long as you know what your doing and what exactly you should be talking about. To help you with creating marketing videos for your business, you should consider approaching a marketing company. The chances are they’ll have all of the equipment needed ready and would be able to direct you with what to say.

    Swansea Creatives are based in South Wales and have years of experience in video marketing. Using their experience, they’ve put together a little blog on video marketing to give you a better understanding…

    Video Marketing

    “Video marketing is a new type of internet marketing and advertising in which business create 2-5 minute short videos about specific topics using content from articles and other text sources. The videos are then uploaded to various video sharing websites like YouTube for distribution and exposure.”

    Google is a very powerful search engine with over 90% of us in the UK using Google to search for goods and services. In October 2006 Google purchased Youtube for $1.6 billion because they realised how important online videos were becoming when it comes to generating even more revenue.

    Therefore, as a business person yourself, it should come as no surprise that videos uploaded to Youtube (owned by Google) rank high on the Google search engine.

    Here’s an example of how a testimonial left by a customer can be turned into a marketing video…

    Swansea Creatives Swansea Amazing Five Star Review by Linda

    Video marketing can be very easy to run and very effective to your business. Marketing videos are good at adding quality content to your site which Google loves and that could lead to your business website being moved up the rankings in Google, making your business easier to find. Videos also look good for customers. If you have videos on your sites explaining your services, people may understand your business better and would be more inclined to buy from you and not one of your competitors.



  • Why Your Website Design Is Important

    Choosing a design for your website can be just as important as doing anything else for your business. You want the best possible website design that suits your company as possible in a bid to attract any new potential customers as possible that may have landed on your site. There are many different ways you can design your website, but for someone with little marketing experience, choosing the right website design may not be as straight forward as it sounds.

    The best way to make sure you have the best website design you can, is to approach a marketing company to help you. Many marketing companies offer website design as a service. One of these companies is Swansea Creatives. Swansea Creatives are a marketing company based in South Wales with many years of marketing experience. They offer website design as a service and their expertise could help you in attracting potential customers. To give you a better understanding of how a good website design could work for you when trying to attract new customers, they have written a blog with information to help you. I have attached the blog below for you to go and read…

    Website Design

    “Your website is your online ‘shop front’ and the focal point of all of your online marketing and your focus should be driving traffic to your website and converting them into customers or at least capturing their name and email address or retargeting them so that you can continue marketing to them ongoing.”

    Having a website is a must for every business but having a website that works for the business is even more important.

    Your website should be strategically developed with your sales funnel in mind.

    Not every visitor to your website will be ready to buy so your website should encourage visitors to leave their name and email address in exchange for free ebooks, vouchers, discounts etc, so you can continue to market to them until they are ready to buy.

    When starting up a business, taking as many marketing tips as you can is really going to benefit you. I’m sure that not many of you would have thought too much about the website design but were already planning ahead with other aspects of marketing your business. Sometimes in marketing, things that may seem a small deal to you may be just as important as anything else, which is why I recommend you read the blog above. There is also other marketing information available on the Swansea Creatives website.

  • Ladies Winter Knitwear

    The weather in the UK is colder and greyer recently. As we approach halloween, and our thoughts turn to all the autumnal activities that you will looking forward to over the next few months, a lot of people will inevitably also start to think about knitwear, and how to stay warm and cosy.

    Some people have a few trusty items of knitwear which they turn to again and again, but most will look to seeking out new trends for knitwear during the season. After all, ladies knitwear does not have to be a boring old jumper.

    Ladies’ fashion store, Goose Island, will certainly have your knitwear sorted this season:

    Being cosy and comfortable can sometimes feel like you have to make style sacrifices. Big, thick, woolly jumpers are great for keeping out the cold, but can be overly cumbersome under a coat, and can also appear quite shapeless.

    Women’s knitwear doesn’t always have to be about bulky jumpers; there are many more options that will keep you warm, but still remain stylish.

    cardiganPonchos, cardigans, jumpers, and even dresses can be the essential style fix for you this winter, and there are so many wonderful designs, patterns, and colours available, that you will have no excuse to stick to a boring old jumper.

    Also, it is never too early to think about Christmas. Add a few knitwear items on your list for Santa, and look forward to snuggling up in them on Christmas day. Even better, look out for some lovely stylish knitwear pieces to give as gifts!
