HOW TO BUILD A VIDEO MARKETING STRATEGY

Now that you gathered all the necessary tools and requirements, let’s get started on the strategy that you will have to follow. It is always best to have a plan or strategy, since your goal is to produce an awesome product without being stressed out.

First and foremost, you must initially start with your video goals. Preferably, you would start creating a video that meets all the marketing funnel criteria, but you mustn’t be hasty and take a decision as such as you might get start in between. Initially, choose a stage that exactly meets your target. So, there are three stages that you must consider.

Awareness: The viewer realizes that there is an opportunity that he/she is able to take, as the need and the availability previously didn’t exist, and now it does. Videos containing any awareness related content often attract a lot of users, which is quite ideal when introducing a brand to a new audience.

Consideration: These type of videos makes the viewer consider; how will he/she solve a problem if they are facing one. The viewer would be compelled to research about it, asking recommendations, reading reviews and try to find solutions.

Decision: Your solution has been half-way made and you want to stay top of mind. You can then present your work along with customer satisfaction and also prove why this product you made is to be chosen over your rival competitions.

Once considering all of this, it is best to create an awareness video for your brand, as it is best to attract new audiences. But if you want an audience that will engage often, then a consideration video is ideal. And also, if you close to making a decision and you still need to nurture your ideas, then a decision video is recommended.

HOW DO YOU WANT TO TELL YOUR STORY?

The next stage is for you to decide, what sort of a narrative are you going to present to the audience. There are four key elements that you must outline and follow, to make this task easier to handle.

  • Protagonist with an end goal
  • Conflict
  • Quest
  • Resolution

When taking regard to all these elements, the audience would then be taken on a journey from start to finish, along with your brand or product.

ALWAYS STICK TO THE TIMETABLE

As all these preparations are coming through, often you will be overwhelmed as to how much energy and time you might have to put into, which would ultimately result in your work becoming overdue or cancelled. We most certainly cannot let that happen, so it is highly recommended to have a timeline.

HAVE A BUDGET PLAN

Money is another essential part when it comes to the production of such videos. So, it is to your best interest, to plan out a budget plan. Plan on what you will be creating at the comfort of your home and what you will get outsourced. And also, don’t be shy to use the resources available to you to the maximum that you can. What I mean is, ask experts around the internet to help you in certain services like, scripting, sound editing or even social media distribution. But even when you do so, make sure to ask the relevant charges and pay according to your plan.
