Just recently, I did an analysis of how my clients found me: 85% of my male clients found me online through an organic search using Google or Yahoo. I always ask each client why they called and/or decided to work with me as their web developer and online marketing strategist, every single one of them said that they made their decision based on a 60-second video I have on my website. The video was engaging and they felt a connection with me as they watched my 60-second infomercial. This goes to show you how powerful a personalized video can make with your website visitor.

Having a video on your website is an easy way for customers to learn about what the website has to offer. Having video is a more convenient way for customers to learn about products and services than it is for them to read about it. Customers like it so much in fact that according to MetaCafe, having a video on a website can retain the attention of visitors ten times longer than a website without video (metacafe.com).

This morning I came across an informative blog post accompanied by a beautiful infographic Jessica Fritsche,  a marketing manager for D Custom in Dallas, Texas. I felt an impulsive need to share it here on my blog.  Enjoy!
