With a professional video, you can instantly revitalize your business branding and improve your company profile. Whether you plan to have a 30-second advertisement or an entire hour introducing a corporate project, having a creative video production is always a great way to deliver your story. But how can you transmit your message through videos? Find out the guidelines to creating a video that will win you your target audience by reading the next paragraphs below:
1. Know your audience and what they want
One of the main goals you have in marketing is to communicate to your specific audience. We all know that your ads will not necessarily appeal to all types of audience so you need to know their persona and be as specific as possible. Make sure that your message is clear and tailored to the concerns of your viewers.
2. Tell a great and relatable story
Treat your script as a blueprint of your video production. Keep in mind that all things great start on paper first, whether be it a video, a building, or a movie. The story inside the script should describe every visual as well as audio element, similar to architect’s plans in a building’s blueprint. Spend as much time as you need to produce an efficient script before spending your budget in producing a video. Another factor to consider is the length of your video. Marketing videos are ideally shorter so if possible, try to keep it less than 2 to 3 minutes. Make it clear and concise so you can easily grab the attention of a potential viewer. Consider it as a summary about everything that is great about your company or service. Every second of your video should be worth your audience’s time so save all the lengthy and detailed information on your web page.
3. Make sure it is engaging
Videos are an effective marketing strategy since it can easily inform and persuade as compared to other marketing tactics. It offers visceral experience to the viewers because it is engaging orally and visually. Instead of simply explaining why your services or products are beneficial, you can use the video to show people why they should invest into your services.
4. Focus on your audience not your branding
Viewers are watching your video for no other reason but to solve their personal problems. It is not to learn about your company’s history or how many successful advertisements you have produced but to know how your company can be of service to them. Solve their specific problems by giving them a video they can relate to.
5. Share your beliefs
Your audience has a lot of options trying to woo them daily. So why should they choose you amongst this wide selection of options? Once you catch your audience’s attention, give up a bit more about yourself to engage them.
6. Plan how to distribute the video
Plan how you should distribute the video before producing it. You can upload it to your or your client’s website, YouTube page, Facebook page, Vimeo and other social media accounts. The video can be played at trade shows or used in one-on-one meetings. You may also have a link to the video in press releases, newsletters, and articles. By having a widely distributed video, you can make it easier for you and your client to reach you target audience.
