Do most seo video companies put your videos up under their account and then when you stop using their service, they remove them?
I am looking into hiring a seo video company and want to know if this is common practice. I personally think that we should own those videos but it was explained to me that like a video rental, you are renting/leasing the space for those videos to be placed out their on their servers and that if you stop, it is now their property.I am able to get the company I am looking at to let us own 10 or so should we decide to stop.
The only other reason I can think of that justifies companies taking the online videos down is because it is like running a tv commercial. Once you stop paying to run it, it comes down.
Any thoughts from my esteemed colleagues?
I tried to negotiate. One said no and the other said I could keep like 6-10. By bringing up this topic in the ADM's forum, I hope this helps others as well!
Kim, I would think if you are partnered with an advertising agency that creates the TV spots, they could offer this service either free of charge or for a nominal fee. Posting to your dealership's various accounts should be something automatically happening and as they are your TV spots, they should remain yours. Providing the service should not dictate ownership of the spots. Those are my thoughts.
I agree! I just have been having a hard time with most seo video companies wanting to take down the videos afterwards.
Sounds like something a 5 year old would do when their toys were taken away :-/
Kim Essenmacher, there are so many different Video Platforms out there, Used Cars, New Cars, Lease, Buy, Oil Changes, Service, Parts, We can go on and on. Remember if your going to choose a company, I would make sure they give your Brand a 50 Mile Exclusive Radius and all the analytic's to show you the click through's to your landing pages or website . That way they can not deploy videos in your 50 Mile Exclusive (MARKETS)Radius. Remember that if your competitors do sign up with any of the Power House Video Company's out there you will get a very slim ROI. These powers houses have over 200 employees and that's all they do.
There is more to Video SEO then most people think.
So when researching a Video SEO company ask for 10 or 12 of there clients and the channels and see for yourself if the end user is engaging in the videos.
