For small businesses looking to sell their product and connect with their customers on a more personal level, Pitchsome is a great resource. For crafters, artists and others with unique handmade products, using video is a great way to make this connection.

Pitchsome is a Dutch company founded by Junaid Sahebzada, who is also the CEO. He said, in a company press release, one of the reasons he created the company was because “Small companies still struggle to get the attention of customers in their specific niches.”

The Power of Video

The growth of video is being driven by smart mobile devices, social media and increasingly faster wireless broadband speeds. Cisco’s Visual Networking Index says video will account for 80 percent of all consumer internet traffic by 2019.

When it comes to consumers, four times as many of them would rather watch a video about a product than read about it. For 74 percent of millennials, video is more helpful when comparison shopping, while 60 percent said they prefer it to reading a newsletter.

If you provide solutions for executives, they also prefer video. Fifty-nine percent of them say they would rather watch video than reading text. 

Using Video to Compete

One of the ways small businesses can compete with large retailers is by making personalized connections with their customers. With video, you can get closer by letting them know about you, your company and the products you offer. The Pitchsome platform is one way you can do this.

  1. Right. It is about creating businesses that demonstrates what you do. This may mean that you need more time for creating a video. But people no longer listen to empty claims.
