Default Are any contractors using video

Are any other contractors using video on their websites?

Here are a few of mine:
Exterior High Gloss
Concrete Sealer
Historic Restoration

Please let me know; I am always trying to improve.

Not as well as you!

These look great!, I love the stop animation effect, is that all in vimeo?

Your site is very nice.

I always wonder, on the videos that show so much of the process, do you think you are giving too much info away? Is there a fine line between a "how to" and "look how much is involved"?

What is the reaction from your customers?

I have a video up, but it's a slide show. Sometimes it's better to show pics instead of "letting it all hang out". It's on my homepage

Put them on Youtube, title them correctly (using your local geographic zone as a keyword) and they will rank in your local listings. I get a ton of work from one video in particular because it is always in the SERP's.

Mine was a youtube video, but then google ads had another painting contractor advertising on it. So I switched it to Yahoo.
