Full report available at: http://pixvid.tv/1erXLtF - With our powerful video marketing software and team of YouTube experts, Pixability recently completed the marketing and media industry's most comprehensive study of the world's top 100 global brands and their use of YouTube as a marketing and advertising platform. Analyzing 1,378 channels, more than 250,000 videos, and over 9.5 billion views, we were able to distill critical lessons that are applicable to other global brands, eCommerce companies, and their agencies. The study also reveals major, striking shifts in the use of online video. Digital marketing and advertising professionals will not only find these movements important to their strategy, but they will also find the lessons immediately applicable to their execution.

  • 19. Typical Video Shelf-Life  YouTube videos typically get the most views in the first three weeks after publication (about 40% of overall lifetime views).  However, many videos experience renewed viewer interest in weeks 6-12, mostly driven by sustained campaign activities and social sharing.  After week 12 most videos just slowly collect organic views. However, these long-tail views still drive over 30% of all lifetime views. 0.00% 2.00% 4.00% 6.00% 8.00% 10.00% 12.00% 14.00% 16.00% 18.00% 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 Weeklypercentageoftotalviews Week after publication

  • 26. Publishing frequency and overall success  The top brands publish high volumes of content consistently and regularly.  Weaker brands publish far less content and often have isolated peaks of video production with long periods of inactivity in between.
  • 27. 2. Practice Good Video SEO
  • 28. YouTube is the 2nd largest search engine  Search (both direct and indirectly via tag matching) is a major driver of video traffic.  YouTube SEO follows very different rules than traditional SEO  Impact on traditional SEO: Google prioritizes pages with YouTube videos very highly in conventional search
  • 29. Identified Influence Factors on YouTube SEO 1. Watch time that the video accumulated 2. Video title 3. Video tags 4. Number of times the video has been embedded and on other sites 5. Number of links from external sites to the video 6. Description text 7. Video age: Older is better, unless it’s a trending topic 8. Transcript texts 9. Number of total views of the video’s YouTube channel Search ranking factors in order of importance: Source: Pixability statistical analysis of YouTube search results; YouTube
  • 30. Top 100 Brands vs. The Rest: Metadata Top 100 brands on average do a better job managing their video assets than other companies. 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Top Quartile Bottom Quartile Average No. of Tags 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Top Quartile Bottom Quartile Average No. of Playlists
  • 31. 3. Use Different Grades of Videos
  • 32. The Best YouTube Marketers Produce a Broader Range of Videos Length (seconds) Best Channels, Top 100 Brands (Top Quartile) Worst Channels, Top 100 Brands (Bottom Quartile) 24s 45s 16:13 16:27 Average shortest video Average longest video
  • 33. It doesn’t always have to be prime time quality The strongest video marketers frequently produce relatively simple videos with low production values. In many cases, these videos reach a substantial audience regardless of technical and creative quality.
  • 34. 4. Link Video to Marketing Initiatives
  • 35. The end of the big Super Bowl ad premiere  Following Volkswagen’s huge success with its “Darth Vader” commercial in 2011, most major brands in 2012 premiered their Super Bowl ads before the game on YouTube.  This illustrates how important YouTube has become to capture consumers’ attention.  As a result, the most successful brands carefully coordinate their offline marketing with their YouTube strategies.
  • 36. Campaign-Driven Videos  A strong tie-in of general marketing campaigns with YouTube is essential.  However, the best video marketers avoid setting up channels that only serve the purposes of a limited campaign. “Orphan” channels with stale content quickly turn into a problem otherwise.
  • 37. Event Videos Even For Limited Audiences  Successful video marketers don’t hesitate to produce video series for even very limited, but highly engaged audiences, such as event participants.
  • 38. 5. Ensure Video has Branding
  • 39. Clearly Branded Videos The best brands consistently brand their videos in both the video content itself as well as in metadata. This is essential because YouTube videos often are used out side of the context of a branded YouTube channel.
  • 40. Multiple Places for Branding Title Channel logo Video content Metadata (Tags, Descriptions)
  • 41. 6. Invest in Content over Channels
  • 42. Channels Per Brand By Industry B2B Technology and Media companies have the most channels per brand. Luxury brands concentrate their activity on only a few channels. - 5 10 15 20 25 30 Average Channels By Industry
  • 43. Are more channels better? Brand YouTube Channels View Rank 3M 43 54 Disney 41 1 Nike 41 4 IBM 41 49 Google 40 2 Sony 34 3 Samsung 34 6 Philips 34 39 Oracle 34 63 IKEA 33 33 adidas 32 7 Nokia 30 5 Cisco 30 42 Nestle 30 47 SAP 29 76 Siemens 26 59 Panasonic 25 34 Accenture 25 93 Pepsi 23 15 Colgate 23 44 • While the most active video marketers typically maintain multiple channels, more is not necessarily better. • Best practice: Have channels that clearly focus on a particular target audience. • Avoid temporary campaign-based channels.
  • 44. Inactive Channels • 37% of all channels have not been updated with fresh content for over 120 days. 17 brands have over 50% inactive channels. • The main reasons seem to be channel consolidation or simple lack of video marketing activity. Brands with the highest percentage of inactive channels Active channels 63% Channels not updated for over 120 days 37% 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90% 100% Kleenex Yahoo Johnnie UBS Cisco Gap Kellogg's LouisVuitton Xerox Nivea Heineken Sprite American Pepsi Gillette Caterpillar Nescafe Active channels Inactive channels
  • 45. Background: Customized Brand Channels  In addition to its standard layout, YouTube offers customized “gadgets” to large advertisers: channel tabs that can contain interactive elements.
  • 46. Top 100 Brands: Customized Channels  Only 8% of channels use custom gadgets, but twice as many in the top group. All Channels Best 200 Channels by Views Brand channel with custom gadget 14% Standard channel 86% Brand channel with custom gadget 8% Standard channel 92%
  • 47. 7. Engage Community via Social Media
  • 48. Top 100 Brands vs. The Rest: Social Media Social media is clearly a very strong driver of video marketing success. 229,365 693 - 50,000 100,000 150,000 200,000 250,000 Top Quartile Bottom Quartile Avg.

  • 49. The Best Social Video Marketers • 4 brands reached a perfect 100 social score, but scores are dropping off quickly after this top group.

  • 50. Viewer Sentiment By Industry • Luxury, Apparel, Alcohol and Automotive brands reached the most positive user ratings (as measured by Likes/Dislikes on YouTube videos). • Fast moving consumer goods, energy and financial services are the least popular industries. Industry Average of Positive Votes Home (1 brand) 96% Luxury 96% Apparel 96% Alcohol 94% Automotive 93% B2B Technology 92% Transportation (1 brand) 90% Diversified 90% B2C Technology 87% Food and Beverages 86% Media 85% Energy (1 brand) 84% Fast-moving consumer goods 83% Financial Services 73%
