Let’s take off from the time when video marketing has come to the point of development, certainly not yet at its highest peak but on a level where topic-and-work integration between digital marketing and state-of-the-art filmmaking is becoming a reality. As more and more businesses or companies are involved in the process of creating video marketing stories, the need to define and refine strategies has all the more become of prime importance.
The formulation of a video marketing strategy (VMS) depends on the clarity of the goals of the business enterprise or the company. Groups involved in the production and sale of electronic products would probably have a different VMS compared to those involved in the production and sale of women’s clothing and accessories. The market niche of electronic products cuts across all age-level generations from millennials to baby boomers, while the niche of women’s clothing is gender-specific and limited to the younger age groups.
In the 2016 Video Marketing Guide, Jake LeVoir of slateandmain.com says, businesses can now create niche products for niche audiences and use the internet monetize them with custom video marketing campaigns that work.
VMS can develop a social brand awareness that involves primarily the same psychological process as the method of creating a “package” out of a product. The goal is to enable the recipient of the package to build interest on the product and later remember the product’s name as a “brand.” For many people, social brand awareness is much the same as a hybrid SEO procedure that can be implemented at any time.
Custom-building a video marketing campaign with a specific product that matches a particular market niche should be a priority in the formulation of a video marketing strategy. Such VMS is related to the content of the campaign where content can influence people belonging to the target niche to remember the product or brand or decide to purchase the product as a result of the successful packaging of the campaign.
After creating a strategy and developing a storyboard, if the company cannot produce a professional video marketing content, one may find a production company to make the video story and script come to life. A professional production company can assure the quality of the produced video that can be a perfect tool to sell the products or services of others online.
A part of the VMS is to identify the platforms by which the video content will be distributed and shown. The video marketing climate, culture, and technology have offered a combination of pathways with the web as the superhighway. Unlike in the old days when video marketing meant bringing a video disc to a live audience and presenting the product similar to a movie house, video marketing can be done in the comfort of an office and viewed by thousands or millions of people worldwide. Today, YouTube has become the leading platform for businesses to show their video marketing content.
Making a high-quality video material is of prime importance to marketing success. Marketing Videos and Campaign Strategy for Business confirms in their observation that businesses or brands willing to invest in marketing are not okay with receiving low-quality video because a low-quality presentation would cheapen their brand and compromise advertising.
