  • Consumers Interact with video more, and we can measure this by completion rates, number of times shared, actions taken (or not) after a video has been watched
  • Consumers Interact with video moreIts more engagingThe performance of video is great51.9% of marketing professionals worldwide cite video as the type of content with the best ROI.EMARKETER, 2013
  • Put another way, how can affiliate be rewarded for their part in the consumer journey? Video is a pull mechanism. Contrast that with an email that pushes a special or promotion in front of a consumer. In contract, a video exists in its own right. It’s there to be discovered, and can be a doorway into still more discoveries for the consumer. Types of videos:How To VideosProduct demonstration videosProduct ReviewsWhite papersNews, industry updatesThe biggest difference for us to understand is that video is about building an audience, and then monetizing it. Direct Marketing typically has focuesed on the product first, then finding the audience for it.
  • You can drive highly qualified traffic with YouTube. Don’t forget that YouTube is the 2nd biggest search engine out there. There is an SEO strategy to be played, and there is also a CPV opportunity. That’s right, I didn’t say PPC I said CPV or cost per view. Also, marketers can use YouTube in combination with Google search and the Google Display network, via adwords to distribute video.Create a Channel/ Content Strategy – Of course the hub for this would probably be YouTube. That’s where you get the most exposure. To be a content creator, you have to think in term of the audience, and audience development. What mixture of content can you bring this audience, and how best to monetize it. I contrast this with affiliate marketing, where the thinking has always been more oriented to the advertiser. If you look at this from the top down, there is probably a little more emphasis on developing the media and the audience as opposed to the direct sales strategy. Less empahsis on the pricing pomotion and product.You don’t even have to produce your own content to monetize video. You just discover and curated like upworthy, gawker, Buzzfeed – video wants to be shared.
