Does video marketing work?

Youtube currently has over a billion subscribers, the accessibility provided by the combination of video content social platforms and mobile technology is unparalleled. People are constantly consuming content and the most popular by far are videos. It is estimated that 95% of viewers retain a message after watching a video, why would you choose anything else for your company’s marketing?

Why is video important?

Video has become more important than ever, this is because of its ability to quickly grab a user’s full attention while breaking down complex topics into digestible bites. Video has the ability to educate, invoke emotions, display empathy and keep viewers engaged. This coupled with its accessibility through video and social platforms used on mobile phones puts it above the rest.

Why is video production important?

Anyone can shoot a video on their phone or even an entry-level camera, the difference between a video and a great video lies in video production. Through video, production creatives can ensure that the content is clear, dynamic and looks to the best of its ability. The subtle nuances added to the colour grading, the shooting techniques, all make a difference.

Why video content?

Video‘s importance is found in its ability to clearly communicate most topics. This is a big advantage when used in marketing because it allows your business to build a solid narrative that invokes emotional bonds between the business and consumers. People quickly engage with storytelling, consuming video at a rapid pace. It is indeed the most effective and important form of content.

How to repurpose video content?

Video content is truly modular and it could be changed and repurposed for a number of uses such as turning your video into a podcast, breaking it up into smaller pieces to create a social video series or even utilising parts of it as an infographic. While not evergreen content video still has a lot more use cases than one would think.

Why is video marketing so powerful?

Video offers a sense of physical existence, thus it builds trust between your company and consumers as well as the confidence they have in your company. By building your marketing plan around video content you are able to ensure that people will engage with it and take away a clear message from it. Video continues to grow as the most popular marketing content for these reasons.

Our Six-Step Video Production Process:

Step One - Establish Intent

What are you planning to achieve with your video production project? Having a clear idea of what the video is going to be about and who it is for.

This will have a major impact on how it will flow, how it will be filmed and what would be required to film it.

Step Two - Communication

A video should have a single focused message that speaks directly to your target audience – Are you making them aware of your capabilities as a supplier? Are you making them aware of a solution to a problem they might not be aware of?

Are you providing a solution that will save them time or money?

Step Three - Script Writing

After figuring out your intent and how we can communicate it, we can start the scriptwriting process. When writing a script it’s important to keep the voice of the script in line with your customer.

We need to keep the script focussed and informative while ensuring that our message is clear and easy to understand.

Step Four - Production

Once steps one through three have been concluded and signed off, we can start filming your video production project. Using a project production shot list our producer will work closely with the client to ensure each scene is captured and the message and intent are clear. 

Adequate planning makes for well-optimised shooting.

Step Five - Post Production

After filming has been concluded, we can start editing your video. This is a collaborative effort, with constant communication aiding in the generation of the first draft.

Once the first draft has been concluded, you would need to review it, thereafter the changes referenced within your review will be discussed and applied throughout the video.

Step Six - Final Draft

The review process may be repeated once or twice to ensure a final draft that matches your envisioned expectations and communicates your intended message as effectively and clearly as possible.

Once the final draft has been completed and signed off you can start planning your posting/distribution schedule.
