  • A single marketing video can be leveraged across virtually all marketing channels Video is a very cost effective marketing asset (especially on a per use basis)
  • - How are marketer’s measured? -> Conversions! - An effective video marketing strategy must include messaging, design, streaming, analytics and campaign delivery planning - Not just the visuals / shoot
  • - Messaging is the critical starting point of the video - Start with the messaging -> Not the visuals - You have 60 seconds or less to deliver your video marketing message - Getting your video script to include down to 145 words is very difficult -> But critical the video’s effectiveness
  • All the design elements contribute significantly to the end video production Assume the video will be watched on a mobile device -> Design Accordingly
  • Onsite shoots are risky, expensive and typically unnecessary -> Employee “stars” can leave the company or simply perform poorly on camera Actors are typically “unauthentic” Motion Graphics can be leveraged to create an effective marketing video Most company’s have existing marketing assets (Logos, photos, videos, screen captures) that can be repurposed for a marketing video
  • Flash no longer the “standard” for online video Apple / iPhone was a game changer -> HTML5 A wide range of mobile phones and tablets must be supported for video streaming Marketing videos must be reliably streamed EVERYWHERE
  • Video analytics include plays, time viewed, viewer engagement, traffic sources, geographic location Viewer engagement the most important metric -> what % of the video is seen Viewer engagement drops off dramatically after 60 seconds Be sure to tie video views to a specific customer / prospect profile -> To measure individual conversion metrics
  • Video Landing Page Best Practices: Don’t use the “auto-play” feature on the video player! Use a well branded / matching video player thumb image Use a video designed specifically for the campaign vs. a general company overview video Reinforce the page & campaign CTA within the video Keep the video player above the page “fold”
  • Including video in an email increases click-through rates 2-3X Best Practices: Video delivery in email is problematic. Don’t do it / try Include professionally branding video player thumb image Link the video player image to the video landing page Can’t convert customers in email anyway
  • Google is regularly returning video (mostly YouTube) in organic search results Video SEO best practices (in YouTube) Begin the title of the video with the most important key word(s) -> Don’t begin the title with your company or product name Include a url in the video description field Use Use a minimum of 10 keyword rich descriptive tags per video Upload closed caption text and subtitles to your corporate videos on YouTube since the text is crawlable
  • - Quantisense marketing video marketing campaign for the 2012 NRF Tradeshow - 60 foot Quantisense banner with 6x6 QR code linked to their video hung on the outside of the Javit center in NYC
  • YouTube is great for SEO and awareness -> Definitely post your marketing videos on the site Don’ t ’ drive customers to YouTube.com -> They will never convert or come back YouTube.com is one of the most blocked sites by corporate firewalls / administrators -> BIG problem for video marketing If you are a professional marketer -> Use a professional online video platform instead of YouTube
  • Use video for virtually all marketing campaigns
