Consumers are favouring video marketing more than ever, but is this channel effective for driving quality conversions at an effective rate? The answer is absolutely, and here’s why:
High Quality, Engaging Content
Dynamic content is far more effective than static content when it comes to capturing user attention. A well produced video will always outperform a wall of text or a display banner when it comes to brand recall, so why aren’t most businesses capitalising on this opportunity?
There seems to be a common misconception that video ads are expensive and complicated to produce. When in fact, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Modern technology available on consumer-grade laptops is more than enough to deliver effective marketing videos. All you need is a bit of time, and a clear vision of the video to be produced.
Another common roadblock is not knowing where to start, that the whole process seems too daunting. Our advice for this is to outline the goal of the video before proceeding. Every piece of content needs a clearly defined goal, and this can usually be attributed to one of the following
Once the goal has been outlined, creation is relatively easy, all you need is a laptop and a phone with a decent camera. Here are a few free and intuitive video production tools:
After production, it's always a good idea to share the video internally, and let staff/friends/family provide valuable feedback before deciding to promote it online.
Once the video content is ready to promote, it should be shared and promoted in three distinct areas; Owned, Earned and Paid.
Always remember, return on investment for video ads are cumulative, it's likely you won’t immediately generate profitable results. However, if you continue to refine your creative and improve the quality of your content, you’ll be surprised how quickly the results justify the effort.
