Whether through Content Marketing, SEO or Influencer Marketing strategies, Video Marketing is an essential tool for the success of any business. But how do you make sure that your video marketing strategy is as effective as possible? Here are 10 advanced strategies to maximize the impact of your videos and achieve amazing results.
Know your target audience.
Before you start creating videos, it is important that you know who your target audience is. Who are your ideal clients? What interests and motivates them? Once you have a clear understanding of who your customers are, you can create content that is truly engaging and relevant to them.
To do this, we recommend that you focus on creating your Buyer Persona profile, which is nothing more than the profile of your ideal client (or ideal clients). You can do it through this free link from the Semrush platform.
Define your goal.
What is the goal of your video? Do you want to improve brand awareness, increase sales, or simply educate your audience? Whatever your goal is, make sure you are clear about it before you start creating your video. This way, you can ensure that the content is relevant and effective.
Another element that can help you perfectly define the objective of your video, in addition to deciding on which platforms it will be placed, is the creation of the Customer Journey Map, which is nothing more than the definition of the different stages it goes through a client.
Starting with the Awareness stage, in which you don’t know the brand or product, but you know you have a problem or need something, up to the transaction stage, in which you make the purchase decision.
Maintain a clear and coherent structure.
Make sure your video has a clear and coherent structure. Start with an engaging introduction that grabs your audience’s attention and holds it until the end. Be sure to include a clear call to action so your viewers know exactly what to do next.
Opt for excellent visual and sound quality.
Visual and sound quality is critical to the success of any video. Invest in good recording and editing equipment to make sure your videos look and sound professional.
Good lighting is key for your videos to have decent image quality. For this, you do not need to have a professional lighting team, just try to see your face well lit, and the elements you are filming. Also, try not to film against the light, and use a camera that can provide you with full HD video at least.
As for the sound, sometimes it is difficult to have a quiet space in which sounds do not get into your filming, for this you can use a resource of “guerrilla audiovisual production”, and it is about using headphones or earphones as if They were lapel microphones, in order to guarantee the clarity of your voice.
Subtitles are a powerful tool to increase the accessibility of your video and improve the user experience. In addition, they can also help improve your SEO, as they allow search engines (like Google or YouTube) to better understand your content.
Promote your video on all your platforms.
Once you’ve created your video, make sure to promote it on all of your online platforms and social networks. Share the video on your website, social networks and other relevant online channels. Additionally, you can also consider paying for online advertising to ensure that your video reaches a wider audience.
Collaborate with influencers and Boost Content.
Collaborating with influencers and sponsoring videos can be a great way to reach a new and relevant audience. Find influencers who have a similar target audience to yours and work with them to create joint content. Similarly, you can also consider sponsoring high-quality and relevant videos to reach a new audience.
This collaboration strategy is very useful, since in this way, in addition to exchanging content, you will be exchanging audiences. Your followers will be able to follow you, and vice versa. Just make sure that the influencers you choose to collaborate with are content creators the same size as you. Do not try to collaborate with Mega Influencers from the very beginning.
Analyze and measure results.
What is not measured can not be improved. It is important to measure the success of your video marketing strategy. Analyze the performance of your videos and determine which strategies work best. Use analytics tools to understand how your audience is behaving and adjust your approach accordingly.
Keep learning and evolving.
The digital world is constantly evolving and it is important to keep learning and evolving with it. Stay on top of the latest video marketing trends and techniques and apply them to your strategy. Don’t be afraid to experiment and try new things to see what works best for your business.
Be authentic and original.
Last but not least, make sure you are authentic and original in your approach to video marketing. Your audience will appreciate honesty and authenticity and feel more connected to your brand.
Remember that even if it is audiovisual content, you do not have to repeat the same patterns as traditional TV. In other words, do not be afraid to give your opinion, since it is the only way to demonstrate that you know what you are talking about by providing data and evidence on which you base it.
And don’t be afraid to express yourself however you feel comfortable. Think that you are not on traditional TV, and if you create the content from the point of view that you are explaining something to a friend… and if you use jokes, rudeness,… don’t be afraid of them. And as proof, I’m attaching a video of Chef Toño Méndez, a northern chef who isn’t afraid to give his opinion, however controversial it may be, and also isn’t afraid to swear on camera. The result? Millions of views and more than 600K subscribers to his channel.
