With dance reality shows like So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars grabbing the attention of TV viewers, watching dance performances is truly becoming a favorite pastime with people worldwide. The rise of high speed internet and YouTube has also fueled continued and growing interest in the art of dance.
Brian Ling has been a dance enthusiast for many years and spent hours of his time watching dance videos on the web. Recently, he decided to launch a website to share these videos with other people. Mr. Ling states, “There are so many good dancers and choreographers out in the world now. High speed internet has made it possible for these talented folks to share their talent and creativity with the rest of the world.”
The plan to promote the site involved social media primarily. Although Mr. Ling has many years of search engine optimization experience, he wanted a quicker way to get people to the website. Facebook ads were used to target people who were interested in music and dancing. The surprising result? Over 1,500 Facebook fans within two weeks.
As Mr. Ling shared, "I was surprised by how quickly the site took off. We used paid ads before to get people to join Facebook pages, but we got nearly triple the amount that we normally get with our budget. Facebook is a social platform, so apparently when people shared some of the videos, some of their friends would sign up too. It's good to see that dance is still a popular form of entertainment.”
As videos are posted, people are clicking the Facebook like button and sharing them, which continues to increase the viewers and popularity of the new website. Ling continues, “I hope that the website continues to grow and people continue to embrace dance. I’ve created and marketed other websites before, but this is one that I really enjoy putting time into.”
Ling encourages anyone interested in dance to visit the website and follow it via Facebook or Twitter. The website can be viewed at http://www.dance-video.org.
