Electricians desiring to grow their businesses are always on the lookout for smart ways to generate interest in their products and services (Right?). Considering 93% of online experiences begin with a search engine and that Google owns 65-70% of the search engine market share. Search is the #1 driver of website traffic, beating social media by more than 300%! In other words, no matter what a person is searching for online, it’s highly likely that they will come across some sort of video content early in their results. It also should be no surprise that 80% of these video results come from YouTube (which is owned by Google). Online traffic is important because it will frequently end up translating into real customers for your business.
One of the best ways to increase your company’s online visibility is by creating and publishing videos. Did you know:

Electrician Videos Grab Attention
As students of marketing it’s our responsibility to know what’s working, what isn’t and what’s coming. As an electrician business owner today you can leverage the power of video to represent you and your electrician business 24/7/365. It has been proven that most people prefer watching a video to reading, even if the video has the same information as the text. By featuring your products or services via videos, you can grab the attention of potential customers without asking them to invest much effort on their part to learn about what you are offering. Whether it’s a promotional video, educational video, demonstration video, or others, just make sure that they are clear, short, and extremely relevant to the wants and needs of your target audience.
Electrician Videos and YouTube
YouTube is the one exception in the world of social media. This is a great place to show customers who you are or to post testimonial videos. The videos often rank well in search results, and they can be a deciding factor for new customers. You can also use YouTube to make instructional videos for your customers. Give some information away for free and watch what comes back to you.
