5 Reasons YouTube Advertising Should Be Deployed by Government Contractors
In today’s competitive environment, leveraging YouTube advertising gives you the ability to increase brand exposure and gain awareness can be crucial to success.
Whether through traditional marketing or through digital media, increasing brand exposure is often a part of any government contractor’s strategic plan.
If you’re trying to decide whether digital marketing should be part of your strategy, here are five good reasons why it should.
1) Increased Brand Awareness for Your Government Contracting Company
While many government contractors are seeing an increase in Requests for Proposals (RFPs), there are still challenges that make it difficult for implementing capture strategies, while also maintaining profitability, in today’s competitive climate.
Is YouTube advertising a part of that strategy? Sure. Is having a strong grasp on where your company is and where it needs to be a part of that strategy? Absolutely.
2) Highly Targeted Advertising Campaigns
Digital marketing allows you to create highly targeted YouTube advertising campaigns that are as specific as your target market.
As there are no geographical or language barriers, you can focus on individuals who fit your ideal customer profile in terms of location, gender, age, and other important factors that influence their purchasing decisions.
3) Higher Conversion Rates
As a government contractor, you’re probably already well aware of how important it is to get in front of as many people as possible.
YouTube can help you increase brand exposure, and ultimately raise your conversion rates. So why not take advantage?
4) Influencers & Partnerships
One thing that many government contractors are overlooking is YouTube. According to Forbes, there are more than 5 million business-related videos on YouTube, and each day 70 hours of new video is uploaded.
What’s more, two-thirds of Internet users view brand-related content online, and over half of consumers search for product information on YouTube.
These stats make YouTube a powerful resource for small businesses looking to increase their visibility and increase sales through their own brand awareness initiatives.
5) Creative Growth Opportunities
More and more government contractors are launching brand awareness campaigns on YouTube, using video as a way to reach potential clients directly.
This is especially helpful in today’s market where more RFPs are going out than ever before, leaving very little room for word-of-mouth marketing.
Creating videos that demonstrate value can help stand out from competitors and increase brand exposure.
