"It looks really professional, and I think it is the most effective way of providing what the potential student wants when considering a teacher - to see them play, talk, interact with other students - all the stuff you can't otherwise get across. I also feel that having it on my profile is quite a good way to get an edge over my online competitors.
My honest feedback on the cost is that if you'd have asked me that before I'd seen the result, I would have said no, I wouldn't think it was worth it. However, seeing the final product, I'd say it definitely was - all it needs is to bring in one extra student who stays for a term and it's paid for itself."
Nextshoot Online Videos for Tutors
The Tutor Pages has teamed up with Nextshoot, one of the UK's leading web video production companies, to create online videos for tutors.
Video is the most powerful form of online advertising, and here's why tutors should consider it an essential part of their online marketing strategy:
Video creates instant rapport with potential students
Video is the closest a parent or student will get to meeting you in person. Seeing you talk and interact with other students will set them at ease, and convince them of your professionalism. There is no longer any doubt over whether you are who you say you are online. In short, it provides everything a potential student or parent would want before making an enquiry.
Video is the fastest growing ad format online
Having a professionally produced video demonstrates sophistication in your online marketing. It shows that you are aware of current trends and will put you ahead of your competition - not least because search engines such as Google place a strong emphasis on video when determining search rankings.
According to emarketer.com, video is the fastest growing ad format online, with an estimated growth of 40% in 2010. In a survey of ad agencies in 2010, more than one-half of respondents considered video more effective than other forms of advertising, and 83% claimed they were getting more value for their video advertising spend than a year ago.
Viewing video online is now a mainstream activity
Video content is so popular that Youtube currently ranks third as the most visited site on the Internet (behind Google and Facebook).
More people of all ages are now watching video online. In fact, according to the Pew Research Centre, seven in ten (69%) adult internet users watch video online. These users are not just watching entertainment or news - four in ten adult users (38%) state they have watched educational videos online.
