Many marketers and business owners are challenged with how to get the most out of their business video production investment to increase the ROI of their corporate video marketing efforts. Corporate video marketing is one of the best ways to drive content marketing objectives. Video marketing companies know that implementing a Video 1st strategy to your corporate video marketing projects lets marketers leverage their business video production to create additional content for a high R.O.I. for years to come.
Why you should make business video production 1st on your list?
Over the past few years the world has essentially transitioned into a society of viewers rather than readers. The line was a little muddied back in the late 2000s. However, nowadays, online video marketing has fully invaded the web and is growing fast. While many of this video watching was in our personal consumer lives, our personal behavior is driving our business behavior. We are all getting more comfortable watching video to get information about products, places we want to go, to fix things around the house and to inspire us to be better people.
The Internet is at an all-time high for global video viewing and video has become synonymous with internet use. The infographic below, from Clum Creative, highlights the incredible reality of online video marketing content and how important business video production will be. If your business is going to respond to consumer behavior, both B2C and B2B consumers, then having a Video 1st video marketing strategy to create ongoing online video marketing content, is necessary to achieve core business objectives.
How does a Video 1st video marketing strategy fit into video production?
Either driven by an in-house team or one of the video marketing companies out there, sales directors and marketing directors can support their week in and week out content creation needs with a Video 1st plan. Having a Video 1st video marketing strategy is simply using corporate video marketing as a foundational element of your sales and marketing content needs. Video marketing companies know that video content can be leveraged over and over again. They can “slice and dice” video content and allow you to create tons of content. This may include images for blog posts, social media marketing posts, press releases, email campaigns, press releases, and more (depending on the type of business video production and how you plan for it).
In most cases, once you have your corporate video marketing created, you can re-purpose it in other areas. This creates a web of valuable marketing materials that you would have otherwise missed out on. Ultimately, a Video 1st corporate video marketing strategy gives you one cohesive approach for many objectives. Launching a product, targeting an industry, talking about a new use case or showcasing client testimonials are just a handful.
How to get started with a Video 1st video marketing strategy.
The first step in executing a Video 1st corporate video marketing strategy is to stop thinking about video. That’s right! Forget about video!
Start considering questions your customers frequently have and the knowledge of your company from your operational, technical, and sales teams. Think of the stories and use cases your organization has that gives buyers the information they need. Brainstorm who in your organization provides those answers to customers and if they use any visuals or statistics. Moreover, be sure to write all of this information down then align it with your other business and marketing investments your company is making. If this is your first time using a Video 1st corporate video marketing strategy, there are plenty of video marketing companies that can guide and help you.
