tyccAd | June 17, 2022 | Digital Marketing,Search Engine Optimization


In pursuit of curbing operational costs and improving profit margins, businesses initially ventured into the online market sphere and subsequently embraced the direct-to-customers (D2C) business model. Many D2C brands prefer e-commerce portals due to the escalating expenses of physical spaces, which often exceed the reach of small players. While numerous D2C online brands have achieved remarkable success through enhanced online outreach and engaging interactions with their target audiences, this accomplishment is the result of tremendous efforts and effective strategies.

Given the dynamic nature of social media, strategies that were once popular and effective might become obsolete within a short period. Therefore, when formulating successful digital marketing approaches, e-commerce brands must prioritize the invaluable marketing hacks centred around “video marketing”.

Maximizing Sales with Engaging Video Marketing Strategies in the Digital Age

Create video listings for your product

Though e-commerce has become quite prevalent in the modern era, the absence of the touch & feel factor is still a big challenge for many e-retailers. The most effective way to deal with this limitation is by creating informative videos of the products where a person may describe them to recreate that experience. If a brand does a video listing of the products then the conversion rate may increase up to 80 per cent. Brands registered on popular shopping portals can easily upload these videos there besides flashing them on their own websites. But, for better results, the video content should be short, engaging, and crispy.

Create buzz on social media with short videos  

From spending time with friends in a coffee shop to commuting to the office through the metro or having an evening stroll in society’s park, people keep their smartphones in hand and their favourite activity is watching short videos on various social media platforms. Apart from marketing or descriptive videos, brands should also upload interesting, eye-catching, even queer, but relatable short videos that may increase their recall value and trigger the audience for a quick share. These days, not only e-commerce companies but many big brands of international repute are following this strategy and these short videos are ensuring huge returns for them. Besides, this type of content helps brands build their social communities and earn new fans or prospects.

Leverage the power of YouTube

If there is anything worth watching in this world, then it’s impossible that you couldn’t find it on YouTube, the world’s biggest video platform and second-largest search engine, after Google. Due to its huge reach and free availability to internet users, YouTube is the indispensable marketing platform for e-commerce brands and the cost of running a 30-second promotional video is almost negligible if you compare it to broadcasting the same content on a national TV channel. The benefits of YouTube to an e-commerce marketer are amazing, in addition to video, the marketer can also create a style guide and product releases. Besides, the explainer videos can be instrumental in answering relevant questions from customers or prospects. Moreover, the marketer can also avail of YouTube’s organic search capabilities to optimize video content.


Embracing the D2C model and harnessing the power of video marketing are essential strategies for e-commerce success. Captivating product videos and engaging social media content drive sales and foster meaningful connections with customers. Leveraging platforms like YouTube further amplifies brand reach, ensuring long-term growth in the dynamic digital landscape. Stay agile, adapt, and thrive in the competitive online market.
