If you're looking for an idyllic summer holiday in paradise that doesn't cost the earth....

Last year we discovered a beautiful island in Greece after we stumbled upon it totally by chance. Paxos turned out to be the most idyllic summer holiday we've ever had. 

Stunning scenery, incredible views, amazing beaches and the clearest sea you've ever seen... Not to mention great food, peaceful ---- and extremely friendly, laid back people.

We liked it so much that we made a video about the island and the people that work there.

Why video is such a powerful marketing tool

How it increases sales and why everyone is using it.


Today, video accounts for 51% of web traffic.

It's prefered over text by 70% of web users.

They are time poor but content hungry so businesses need to put their message across fast and well. Video gives you the potential to reach to engage with a far greater audience through the internet. Plus, showing your brand is far more powerful than have some text describing it. 

Google search websites for separate content like images and video which gives forward thinking companies an opportunity to gain an advantage over their competitors, improve their search ranking and enhance their website by introducing video content. 


Apart from giving great first impressions, video will also generate sales by:

* Increasing traffic to site
* Enhancing your SEO
* Improving online presence
* Improving conversion rate

Video increases the time prospective customers spend on your site by 344% and promotes engagement, offering something different to share via social media. It is also 53 times more likely to get your website on the first page of search engines versus text only. 

Many businesses are already using the powerful medium of video and getting their businesses ahead of their competitors.
