  • In fact this year mobile internet usage increased 25% thus providing ‘real time anywhere’ web access.
  • For communicators this is an opportunity to reach as millions of Canadians everyday, are saying.....
  • You can upload your video to YouTube, include on your Facebook page, add to your website. These kinds of targeted postings of your video reach consumers who already know about you. They are already interested in your products, service or idea, but .
  • Mass reach will connect you to a wider audience
  • Mass distribution increases the odds that you’ll be found when Canadians are looking for your information.
  • How do you achieve mass reach for your video?First you have to do your research. Investigate what sites and portals are people visiting –what is their audience reach - what makes them popular – what kinds of content do they have. Your list could include Portals, websites, all types of media -as they all have associated websites, targeted or specialty sites, retail sites, local associations like hockey sites. And ask yourself how do you develop a message to work within that framework
  • Select Quality Sites; Canadians are more wary than ever of where and whom information is coming from. Canadians look to sources that have credibility to help them figure out what is legitimate and what is not. They visit sites where there are authorities or experts in their fields offering tips and advice. Consumers will navigate through multiple sources, and if they don’t find what they want, they will quickly move on to the next site. Therefore it is important to target sites that have a good reputation and quality SEO so your video can be found.
  • Portals have tremendous reach because they offer one-stop shopping for content and quality media providers like CBC, CTV , Canadian Business Magazine, Consumers Report - so whatever the users want information, RRSP information, health concerns or issues on the environment Canadians go to Portal. Many of the top Portals provide greater daily audiences that the traditional print and television audiences. The portals also have superior SEO of their content, so if you get on them you will capitalize on the Portal’s SEO.
  • It’s all about establishing a relationship with website editors and that takes time..... so its time to get started. Figure out what the Portals need, how will your content compliment their editorial. Who is the web editor...the person you want is probably not the webmaster (but they might steer you in the right direction) and how is the best way to communicate with the web editor and how often. Also determine if whether you are able to provide them with lots of video content or is it just a one off video. Either option will require a different pitch to the editor. Ensure your content is editorial. Video content that is too branded, too promotional or looks like advertising will not be accepted as it jeopardizes the sites own advertising revenue, and might get you black listed.
  • Each
  • Increase your offerings- that could be including articles with your video, it could mean offering a steady stream of video content – maybe partnering with other government departments to offer videos every monthIt’s just hard work and dedication.
  • Focus on the traditional media especially in that they all have associated website and supply the major Portals with content.
  • Understand some of the web editors challenges – make it easy for them to use your video...provide them in the formats they need. Do they need FLASH or Windows Media or QuickTime or HD –We provide Rogers Yahoo! with video content and we deliver 5 different bit-rates, however as the industry formats becomes more standardized this will become an easier process.
  • In Social media sharing is caring. The more sites you are on the more chances Canadians will include your video on their social media sites. The consumer is moving from being a creator to the distributor.
  • Measuring results of an online video or any web content can be an enormous task without the right tools. Knowing what to measure is key. Watch the comments and see if the viewers engaged (via sharing and comments etc)
  • Measurement has been around for many years and it is still true today that the best analysis tool is you with the help of ME
