The Internet is flooded with millions of videos nowadays, yet videos are crucial to an online marketing plan. So once you create a video, how do you make it stand out in the sea of videos?
Here are 3 tips that will make your video stand out:
1. Tell a Story
Everyone loves a good story. Tell a story with your video and make sure it includes an introduction, climax, and resolution.
A story has the ability to connect with viewers on an emotional level, enabling them to create an emotional connection to you and your product/service by association. Once you make this connection with your viewer, they are more likely to come back and watch future videos and even buy your products or services.
Whether you are creating an instructional video, selling a product, or sharing information, providing the right content is key. It is not only the right content you must provide, but also engaging content.
Video is an easy and entertaining way to provide viewers with informative content. The more unique your content is, it is most likely you will get more views on your video.
You can create a great video, but it does not mean much if no one sees the video. Promote your video to the right people, not simply a mass blast to the Internet.
If you create a video about the new upcoming marketing practices of 2015, it might be best to target the marketing professionals and CMOs.
Similarly, if you create a video about child care, target the popular mommy blog community.
