Across the board, video has become an essential marketing campaign component. In fact, research shows that about 50% of companies are currently using video in their marketing campaigns, and by 2017, video is expected to make up almost 70% of online consumer traffic. But there’s no denying it: Some companies are doing it better than others. What’s the secret to a successful video campaign with a real impact on the viewer? Creating personalized video that speaks your customer's unique needs, wants, and experiences.
Enhancing Your Marketing Campaign with Dynamic Video
In the world of marketing, not all content is created equal. This is especially true when it comes to videos. While many companies are under the impression that incorporating video of any kind into their online marketing campaign will bring in the numbers they want to see, this simply isn’t the case.
In order to be successful, video campaigns need to be crafted with the customer in mind. Users wading through a sea of marketing content want to see something beautiful, fresh, informative, fun, and most importantly, something that mirrors their experiences, needs, lifestyles, or their dreams and ambitions.
Short and visually appealing videos give modern consumers exactly what they want—rapid-fire information in an entertaining format that doesn’t take up too much of their ever-shrinking time. Videos have unparalleled reach: they’re easy to share via social media and they build brand recognition. Research suggests that 7 out of 10 people report more positive feelings towards a brand after viewing compelling video content.
For businesses of all kinds, from small to medium, outstanding customer communication that’s tailored to each customer motivating them to step closer to the brand and differentiating the brand’s story from others is crucial for its success.
