How are bookings at your flight school or flying club? Is the marketing of your aviation related business producing the response you had hoped for? Would some aviation marketing videos help?
YouTube is now the second biggest search engine after Google and millions of people use it every hour of every day to search for information, demonstrations, and entertainment.
Flying Club Introductory Video
A short 4-5 minute introductory video about your flying club or flight school would remain in place on YouTube indefinitely. It would be an advertisement that could generate leads for as long as you like. It can be embedded in your website, uploaded to your Facebook page, and shared in social media.
Here’s an example of the format of such a video that we can make for you:
Aviation Marketing Video Options
- The script can be compiled from your existing website content or written to suit
- The images can be ones that you supply or general aviation and commercial stock images
- The narration can be male or female
- The accent can be British, American, or Australian
- Short video clips can be added
- The video will be optimised for searches on YouTube giving it the best chance of being found by direct searches and by the ‘related videos’ process
Why YouTube is the preferred choice for aviation marketing
It’s very easy to build websites but as ever business owner knows it’s much more difficult to bring it to the attention of your target audience. Adding fresh and relevant content while optimising it for the search engines is good practice and may produce results from organic searches. Another option is PPC (Pay Per Click) marketing in Google, Bing, or Facebook.
All these methods work but converting some of the content into video format will give a boost to the possibility that your site or video are returned in the results of any searches. 700 words on a subject in a blog post is a start but if that same 700 words is converted into a video script and if the finished video is optimised correctly in YouTube then the result is greater than the sum of the parts.
This is true for many subjects but more especially when it comes to aviation marketing. Aviation is very popular on YouTube and carefully and professionally constructed videos can attract a healthy audience that may contain warm leads.
You only have to look at the stats for some of the more popular pilots to see how their aviation videos attract millions of views.
The advantages of using YouTube for aviation marketing:
- The video may be found in both Google and YouTube itself
- YouTube may suggest the video to viewers while they look at another
- A narrated video allows the viewer to listen while attending to other tasks
- Web users prefer to hear and watch rather than read pages of text
- YouTube videos encourage user interaction in the form of comments
- YouTube videos are frequently shared by viewers thus expanding their reach
