You've spent tens of thousands or even hundreds of thousands of dollars to produce your short-form or infomercial show. You hire the best producer, talent, editors and writers. Every word in the script is dissected and tweaked until it's perfect.So the big question is: why don't you use more of the video footage on your web site?Having your spot or show on your website is a necessity, but why not go beyond that? Instead of, or in addition to, copy describing your offer, why not include a video clip of the offer?Why not include video of your professional and consumer testimonials? Why not include footage of your animations to bring your product to life?I could easily argue that your final video production is your best salesperson, better than the copy on your site&#8230;or at least, highly complementary to it.One of the objectives of your DRTV production is to get consumers excited about your product &#8211; so why not use video to do just that?Our editors identified 21 ways to use video to '"put your best foot forward'" on your web site.
