Everyone loves a good video.
For years YouTube® has owned the video space. Not anymore. Facebook®, Vimeo®, Snapchat® – everyone's in on the action. And the world is eating it up. Facebook users alone watch hundreds of millions of hours of video every day. Analysts predict that in a few years, streaming video will account for more than three-quarters of all web traffic.
Whether you make videos for fun or use them to sell products or services, .tube is the place to share them. Register your own .tube to let everyone know they're in for a visual treat.
Promote your product or service.
Ask any marketer – videos are hands down the best way to educate buyers and create an emotional connection with a brand. The numbers are impressive:
- Adding a video to an email triples the number of readers who click through to learn more
- Including a video on your web page can improve sales by as much as 80%
- Two-thirds of those who watch a product video online are more likely to buy
Not sure what type of video to post? In a recent study, businesses listed customer testimonials, product demos and tutorials as the most effective for sales (in that order).
Reach out to fellow enthusiasts.
Whatever you love – rugby, fashion, windsurfing, craft beer – a .tube domain name can help you connect with your community through videos. Just add your topic before the dot to call out to like-minded fans. Dot tube is great for:
