Flick Fusion Releases InstaVid, An Automated Video Production Service That Helps Auto Dealers Move Metal Faster

Urbandale, IA--October 27th, 2014--Flick Fusion (www.flickfusion.com), the industry's leading video marketing provider, today released InstaVid, an automated video production service that instantly creates and distributes new and pre-owned inventory videos for auto dealers. In many dealerships, the average time it takes to get photos of inventory for listings and videos is two to three days. InstaVid eliminates that wait time so the dealership can immediately benefit from video SEO and reduce the time that vehicles sit on their lot.

 

"InstaVid helps dealers move metal faster," said Brian Cox, President and CEO of Flick Fusion Video Marketing. "Within hours of a vehicle arriving on a lot, dealers can have videos of that vehicle all over the Internet, generating immediate video SEO. Why wait days to market your inventory when you can begin to attract video views and website visitors instantly?"

 

Many dealerships don't create any inventory videos or listings for new vehicles. Having videos for new inventory results in more than twice the video views and website traffic that a dealership normally gets if they are only creating videos for used inventory. When a car shopper in a dealer's area is searching for a particular make or model, Google is 50% more likely to return search results that include a video, according to Forrester Research.

 

When a VIN is entered into a dealer's DMS, InstaVid automatically generates a video featuring stock photos, a professional voice over and banners advertising dealership-specific specials. Each video is VIN-specific and keywords are added before uploading to YouTube and third-party inventory listing sites.

 

Once the dealership takes photos and/or videos of their vehicles and loads them into their inventory feeds, InstaVid automatically updates the videos, replacing stock photos with the new photos and/or videos. If a dealer decides not to take photos or videos of their inventory, the InstaVid video will remain on the Internet as long as the vehicle remains on the lot.

 

Inventory videos optimized for Video SEO deliver the following benefits to auto dealers:

  • Video search results have a 41% higher click-through rate than plain text results - aimClear
  • Viewers spend 100% more time on pages with videos on them - MarketingSherpa
  • Videos increase people's understanding of your product or service by 74 percent - QuickSprout
  • 90% of online shoppers found video helpful in making purchase decisions - Video Brewery

 

InstaVid is a fully automated service so dealership personnel don't have to do a thing. To learn more about InstaVid, visit http://flickfusion.com/product-instavid.php
