Are you and your customers embracing video?

YouTube-Transparent-LogoThis morning I was involved in a fascinating discussion about the use of video in marketing activities in a closed group on Facebook. It’s all well and good creating a corporate video to post to YouTube and Vimeo (you do know about Vimeo and DailyMotion and Metacafe to name but a few – don’t you?), but how many golf clubs can share the videos made by their delighted customers?

After a quick search on YouTube, it seems that there are very few golf course reviews posted. So this represents a real opportunity for those responsible in driving up membership and green fee revenues to get ahead of the competition.

To get the idea, take a look at this video created by some happy customers of a business – Splash White Water Rafting – run by a friend of mine called Peter Syme.

“one of the greatest moments of our lives”

If you are still unsure about the relevance of video to your golf business, take a quick look at the stats below.

If the smart money is moving there, it’s because the audience is moving there as well.
