Video is one of the most powerful accelerators to help upgrade your online sales process. Whether you are launching a channel on YouTube or just creating product videos for your website, video has proven to be one of the most effective tools for any entrepreneur.
- “Viewers retain 95% of a message when they watch it in a video, compared to 10% when reading it in text.” (Insivia)
- “Online shoppers who view demo videos are 1.81x more likely to purchase than non-viewers” (Adobe)
But, if you’re just starting to create your first videos for your business, you may not want to invest thousands of dollars into equipment until you can justify the cash investment.
Having the right gear should NEVER be an excuse not to produce and share great content. The camera on your smartphone has the power to capture incredible content.
Here is a kit we created that will “upgrade your iPhone” to create awesome videos without breaking the bank.
