We refrain from posting our videos because we wonder, “Who would watch this?”
“No one will share this.”
“What if my video only gets 10 views?”
All valid concerns… if misguided. You’re right! You probably will not get shares on every video, especially if you’re doing it yourself. AND, yes, some of those videos will have minimum views, BUT that’s okay.
Because you know what?
You don’t need THE WORLD to watch your video and you don’t need EVERY VIDEO to reach the world. Sometimes, all it takes is one.
This video (above) had around 12 views (it still has less 200) when the RIGHT couple saw it. (below)
In this example, the Pool Guy sold a SIX FIGURE pool from a poorly viewed, low budget video.
It’s OKAY! It’s okay if you don’t reach millions, or even thousands. The goal is to reach the RIGHT people. The goal of video marketing, is to speak to YOUR customers, your potential customers and your Target Market as a whole.
Think about it, you’re not trying to sell your product to the whole world and all its demographics, are you? Then you don’t need to worry about selling your videos to them all!
There is something to say about creating videos that appeal to a wide range of people who will share the videos and, somewhere along the lines, the right people will see it etc etc, but not every video will be viral; they don’t have to be. How many videos does the average viral video person post before they get the viral one? Do all of their videos go viral after? I think we forget to think about that. Yes, that can work, but more often, it’s the smaller connections that work best.
Would you rather 10,000 people who don’t care about what you’re saying click on your video? Or the 100 people who are super invested and end up buying something from you?
That one video, with 3 views could be viewed by someone on the fence about whether or not they want your service, but once they see the video, they are sold. And this could happen over and over. (With no more effort on your part, at least for the original videos).
It’s not about the amount of views. It’s about the right views.
