In the glorious age of the Internet, more and more potential buyers do a research on a would-be purchase online. It’s the best stop for even the meticulous consumer as you can get both customer feedback and a live performance of the product. By advertising a product on YouTube, sellers just need to get the ball rolling before the traffic directs itself there.
You Tube has become the most popular new marketplace for sellers to seek for their potential buyers thanks to social networking sites like Facebook by being able to share videos to the population. People who had not heard of a certain product might just buy it after watching a video they were tagged in! Besides that, due to the minimal costs of advertising on YouTube, it is a better financial option for sellers. The costs involved will only be setting up a website and the video production cost! The product will travel by word of mouth through these networking sites and YouTube itself. No more headache on high advertising costs!
Pictures speak a thousand words. How about videos? A million! As consumers get more and more impatient, a wall of text will surely put them off. Whereas an interesting video, all it takes is the time to load and a few minutes of their life will be spent watching your product video. They might even end up buying it since its so mesmerizing! Pictures can be doctored and words twisted but videos are the truth. Consumers will trust a video performance of the product more than anything else.
Videos are seen to be the next generation advertising method as through the advancement of technologies, recording quality gets better and better and thus videos clearer too. With better videos, more possibilities are opened up. Videos have an added advantage as consumers feel that they have more interaction with the product compared with other means.
Research also suggests that a catchy tune or a mesmerizing video can imprint themselves subconsciously into the human brain. Until that one day, when they suddenly need that certain item, the past memories might surface and they will think of that product and buy it. If I can remember after so long, it surely can’t be that bad, right?
A new marketplace, 123exchanges.com, has evolved to become the next online video marketplace that connect buyers with quality sellers via video. 123exchanges is trying to change the way people advertise and promote their products online. Buyers now are more likely to watch video listings instead of just plain pictures. This video concept is helping buyers and sellers build trust and eventually leading to future sales.
Selling on YouTube has both pros and cons.
• Mass audience
• Embed function to other sites
• Easy to share your videos through social media channels.
• Fast uploading speed
• YouTube is a “Broadcast Yourself” video sharing platform. It’s not an ideal place to buy or sell stuff.
• Your buyers won’t go to YouTube to find you.
• There is no payment system in place for you to complete a transaction.
• Very hard for people to find your products on YouTube because of the search algorithm/optimization.
People who sell stuff on YouTube should join together to build a new community of buyers and sellers who love the video concept over just posting plain pictures. Together we can build a video marketplace to change the way people showcase products online. Be proactive to the community by starting your own video store today!
123 Exchanges goes live with a video market place for buying selling or exchanging absolutely anything – via video ads.
It makes perfect sense in the media age in which we live in to present your products with a video instead of with just photos and text. This is the idea behind the new website 123exchanges.com, a new site that offers users the ability to post video adverts of their products.
Leon Nguyen, the founder of 123exchanges.com explained the concept behind the site.
“It’s quite a simple idea really. I am a firm believer that when we get more information about a product, especially a second hand product, the easier it is for us to make a solid decision.”
The site has the ability for registered users to upload the videos of the products that they wish to sell. In this way any potential buyer is able to see all of the product, inside and out, and with a running commentary by the seller. It provides a much better understanding of the condition of the product.
“I remember when buying cars,” Leon told us, “I often viewed around 8 before I found the one I was looking at and this was, in my opinion, because the owner would either not take enough photos or because there were only “strategically” shot photos. With video this problem can be eliminated.”
Leon also believes that the use of videos on the site will help reduce the number of trips to view second hand products and also the number of times that sellers have to show the products. Furthermore, he sees a real potential to cut down on fake products. “If we take the decision to only view products that have a well shot video then everyone will have to shoot quality video. The whole second hand and exchange market will improve.”
So how 123exchanges.com actually work? It’s very simple. The seller simply records a video of their product, they then list it on the site and then they sell it. For the buyer it’s just as simple. They search for the products that interest them, watch the video and then contact the seller to arrange for a sale or even to offer something in exchange.
