Engage With a Trunk Full of Stock Videos

Generate more ad revenue, enhance your Web content and better engage your readers - all with video?


Most online advertising is calculated on a CPM (Cost per Mille) basis. This means that the more people who view a page, and the longer they spend on that page, the more advertising revenue is generated from it.


This is where videos come in. Video increases engagement on a website, meaning that the time spent on a publisher's site increases by more than two minutes when video is part of the core offering. So, what are your options? The most obvious is to produce videos in-house. 


In April of this year, Website Magazine published 10 Tips for Overnight Web Video Superstardom, which serves as a terrific starting point for creating, hosting and promoting Web videos. 


If your enterprise wants to take a different path, however, there are services like startup VideoElephant, which provided the graphic in this article, that can help. VideoElephant is basically the iStockphoto or Shutterstock for video.
