General recommendations for small to mid-size companies:Employ online video as a primary contact with prospective customers, it gives provides an invaluable means to talk directly to customers in ways previously accessible only to large companies.
Use video to establish your firm as customer friendly experts as well as to provide useful information on the application of your products and services. Such videos can be created to increase the consumer's "comfort level" with your firm as well as differentiate it from your competitors. They make the customer think and feel "Here's a company for me" before they even establish direct contact with your firm.
Consider buying video commercials. Cable & satellite TV, Facebook, Twitter and Google and others are now making it easier, and cheaper, than ever before for small businesses to buy advertising in local markets. Employing short video commercials in such media placements is far more effective than "poster" ads with voice overs.
