Best Practices for Placing a Brand Video on Your Homepage

Engaging website visitors with a home page video.

In the digital age, leveraging videos on your website’s homepage has become a powerful strategy to engage visitors and convey your brand’s essence. G River’s team has explored video services as part of brand marketing for over a decade. Implementing these best practices can optimize your approach:

Important To-Do’s for Video Services:

Strategic Placement: Position your brand video prominently, ensuring it’s among the first elements visitors see. Make it impossible to miss, drawing attention to your core message. Your web firm can work with your video service provider to make smart decisions on size, placement, and length.

Immediate Value: Within the initial moments, provide value and captivate viewers. Communicate your brand’s unique selling points (USPs) succinctly to spark curiosity.

Autoplay with Muted Sound: Set your video to autoplay on mute, offering a visual introduction. Allow users to unmute if they choose, preventing an intrusive experience.

Clear Call-to-Action (CTA): Accompany your video with a clear and concise CTA. Guide viewers on the next steps, such as exploring products, services, or signing up.

Mobile Optimization: Ensure your video is responsive and adapts seamlessly to different devices. Mobile users form a substantial audience, so prioritize their experience. Various video services will properly display and play across several devices. Select your platforms wisely.

Loading Speed: Optimize your video for quick loading times. A slow-loading video can deter users from staying on your page.

Subtitles and Captions: Incorporate subtitles or captions to cater to diverse audiences, including those who prefer silent browsing and individuals with hearing impairments.

Have a Conversation: Our services can help put you on the right path. Explore our service offerings. And, if you want to go deep with a full-on digital marketing and commercial strategy – chat with our partners at wedü.

Mistakes to Avoid:

Auto-Playback with Sound: Avoid auto-playing videos with sound, as this can annoy and disrupt user experience.

Overwhelming Length: Lengthy videos risk losing viewer interest. Keep it concise, delivering a compelling message within a few minutes. Your video service provider should assist you in determining the appropriate length based on the video goals and audience members.

Ignoring Analytics: Neglecting video performance data can hinder optimization. Monitor metrics to refine your video strategy.

Ignoring Brand Consistency: Ensure your video aligns with your brand identity, maintaining consistency in tone, visuals, and messaging.
