  • Women: mention of Reality TV Mention of NCAA story Men: Don’t tug at the heart strings aim for the funny bone- think about what is humorous to the segment of men you are trying to reach Don’t be afraid to relax and let your brand laugh- don’t go through scripts/story boards with an editing fine tooth comb. You will end up pulling out everything just b/c there might be a theme or joke you think might not totally align with your brand. You have to keep it authentic and genuine- it’s not going to be corporate humor! Sex Sells…. But it’s a finely tuned balance- beware about what sexual content your aligning your brand with and make sure you are not going overboard.
  • We agree that both women and men find videos through search. Women find videos within related content articles- an article about dating Men find videos through video sites and channels
  • Women like total packages including back ground info and extras relating to the video- Homestretch has video, designer interviews, family interviews, photos and related articles Men like quantity over quality. They like to have a choice of multiple videos on one page- crave video channel The environment in which women and men view video is similar to how they date: Women want to investigate all aspects of the video and story- the entire package Men just want to click
