How can you dominate your competition?

4. The Personal Touch and Trust Factor: Video Puts a Face to Your Brand
What do people comprising today’s fast-paced society want? To connect. Marketing experts know that emotion plays a large role in getting a message across, being that consumers tend to stay loyal to a certain product and brand because of how they make them feel – and what they broadcast about themselves. With high-quality video more affordable and more accessible than ever before, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better way to connect with potential customers.
Video has a certain refreshing honesty about putting a face, voice and personality to a company; it doesn’t use shiny corporate jargon that all too often appears in printed marketing material that is over-thought and appears robotic in delivery. There is something to be said from looking in someone’s eye when you are going to buy from them.
5. The Demonstration Factor: Video Helps Convey Complex Messages Very Easily
As touched on in tip number 4, whatever can be said through text can be better expressed through video. A well thought-out and produced video has the power to cut through the “noise” of everyday “information overload” by allowing the viewer to avoid frantically searching through text to find relevant information. In other words, the video doesn’t ask the viewer anything other than to sit back and allow them 90 seconds or so to passively tell them all they need to know.
6. The Viral Video Factor: Videos Can Go Viral Easily
A recent study that came out of the University of Trento in Italy revealed what types of visual content have the most viral potential on Google Plus. Although the study focused on this one social network, the implications of its findings are fascinating and provide a glimpse into other social platforms and their value to a business.
Today, it seems, everyone wants to go “viral.” People are looking for the easy way of creating a “viral sensation” that everyone will pass along to their friends. For businesses and their brand names, a good video explaining everything about the company can tell a target audience the benefits it provides, how they’re unique, their core values and how they can help the consumer. Some examples of perfectly executed viral videos have included:
- The Dollar Shave Club’s “Our Blades are F*ing Great” video
- Kmart’s “Ship My Pants” commercial
- Dove’s “Real Beauty Sketches”
