Video Marketing Weekly from Penrose Productions 3/28/17

Live video is emerging as a terrific way for business owners and service providers to connect with their audiences.

live video with Kevin HartThere are a number of platforms that offer this option, including YouTube, Facebook  and Twitter.

This week in our edition of Video Marketing Weekly, the lead article focuses on the rapidly growing area of live video.

Live video is a huge opportunity for sellers to connect with their potential market. In this lead article, the authors share about 10 of the Top Live Video Influencers to Follow.

Kevin Hart is one of those top 10 but not for reasons you might think.

This article is worth a look if you are trying to target a national or international audience, rather than targeting just a local audience.

If your customers must come into your brick and mortar business, live video is not advised for you. Live video can be a factor that helps you market, but due to your limited audience, your efforts will rely largely on recordings of those live video clips that you record.

 

We would be delighted to help you develop a strategy for using live video to appeal to a nationwide audience.

We can also create a hybrid strategy of live/recorded videos to appeal to a local market if that is your target area.

Over our 35+ years in video production and marketing, we have extensive of experience helping businesses create the right approach and appeal to their audience. Our expertise in both video and business has earned us the understanding and ability to get companies aimed in the right direction for their video marketing efforts.

Here’s the latest edition of the Video Marketing Weekly from Penrose Productions.

BtoB video marketing takes center stage as we compile another of our weekly editions of the Video Marketing Weekly. Here we curate content from throughout the internet postings of the last week about video marketing. We’ve gathered up blog posts and articles from around the web and brought them together for you here your reference.

This week, the lead article is about BtoB video marketing and is titled, Influencer Marketing in B2B: Why Video is the Way to Go.It addresses the topic of BtoB video marketing for businesses that want to grow.

The article explores the opportunities that BtoB video marketing offers to BtoB companies, especially putting influencers in front of the camera rather than writing a blog.

One of the outstanding quotes about BtoB video marketing in this lead article is that businesses know “how to shoot video with good lighting and audio… this doesn’t need to be Hollywood quality, but it does need to be something that people will tune in to. If it’s longer than a couple of minutes, there needs to be a lot of b-roll to keep people entertained; millennials especially.”

As always, the brevity of the lead article prohibits an in-depth look at the issue.”

That’s where we come in. We can help lead you through the minefields of BtoB video marketing so that you can reach your intended audience if you are in that type of business.

We would be delighted to put our 35+ years of video production and marketing experience to work for cmpanies that “get it” about the need for video marketing – even BtoB video marketing.

So please, let us know if we can help you define and determine the targets and strategies for your video marketing going forward.

Here’s the latest about social media sharing in our latest edition of the Video Marketing Weekly.

social media sharingSocial media sharing is the featured topic in this week’s edition of the Video Marketing Weekly. While we have lots of other articles from throughout the web this week, the one that emphasizes social media sharing caught our eye.

This week, we didn’t focus on the headline article from our compilation, but rather we’re looking at a post titled “3 Way s to Get More Bang for Your Buck with Social Media Ads.”

The article has some good points about the platform you use for video ads, but we think the key point is the third one: “Always encourage social media sharing.”

This is often a tedious task, but one that can not be overlooked. In order to magnify your exposure to as many people as possible in your target audience, you need to promote social media sharing for your video ads. This can be done in many ways.

Please be sure to look over this article and let us know if we can help you define the targets and strategies for your social media sharing.

There are many additional articles in the Video Marketing Weekly, so we hope you’ll take the time to explore the hints in them to aid your strategy and tactics for using video marketing in your business. As always, let us know your thoughts on any of the articles gathered in this week’s edition, including the video research involved.

Here’s this week’s edition of our Video Marketing Weekly.

video engagementWe’ve gathered these articles, blog posts, etc. from around the web from the past week. And since viewer engagement in 2017 is going nowhere but up, there’s no shortage of great articles out there.
In fact, the lead article for this week’s compilation of articles from around the web is one titled “How to Use Video Content to Accelerate User Engagement.

The article gives us a look at how much video helps with online marketing. In fact, it says that “landing pages featuring video content increase engagement by 80%.”

Wow, who wouldn’t want that kind of increase in viewer engagement?

Although the numbers are amazing, it comes down to one point, if you aren’t using online videos, your viewer engagement is suffering.

 

Please be sure to check out this article and the many other articles from the past week and see what you think.

Here’s our latest edition of Video Marketing Weekly.

viral videoWe’ve compiled these articles from around the web from the past week. Since 2017 is the “year of web video” there’s no shortage of great articles out there.
The lead article for this week’s compilation of articles from around the web is one titled “This Viral Marketing Video Reached 250 Million Views in Just 24 Hours.

Now, it’s doubtful that our BtoB or BtoC clients will ever get a video with THAT kind of reach.

But how about reaching several hundred or several thousand of your top potential clients. That we can help with. And the article underscores several of the traits necessary to get your video noticed and shared. And who doesn’t want that?.

Our first disagreement is that we see no evidence of that happening, and secondly if companies are going to take their video marketing efforts in house, it needs to be done slowly as a company ramps up its commitment to making marketing videos. We’ve assisted a number of companies do this over the years, but it’s way too simplistic to think that this can be accomplished with the snap of the fingers.

But please check out this article and the various articles and see what you think.

On that topic, the lead article for this week’s compilation of articles from around the web is one from MarTech Advisor titled “How Marketers Can Use Experiential AI to Jump Start Video Marketing.” The article begins at a very high level and identifies for example, Saas from Magisto,is a good one and comments that the new platform “uses artificial intelligence to help drive the transition from traditional marketing creative to digital-first, mobile video marketing for businesses of all sizes.”

This certainly only scratches the surface of using AI for video marketing.

Not only will it speed the video creation process but be extremely useful in tracking, serving, and increasing ROI.

Here’s our latest edition of Video Marketing Weekly.

We’ve compiled these articles from around the web from the past week. With the new year, people are getting their keyboards limbered up again to share about video marketing.

The lead article for this week’s compilation of articles from around the web is one from MarketingProfs titled “Three Major Shifts That Will Transform Video Marketing in 2017.” The article is a good one and agrees with us that in 2017 video marketing will be bigger than ever.

However we have a problem with major shift #3 in their article, which talks about the trend of bringing video production in house to increase its return on investment.

Our first disagreement is that we see no evidence of that happening, and secondly if companies are going to take their video marketing efforts in house, it needs to be done slowly as a company ramps up its commitment to making marketing videos. We’ve assisted a number of companies do this over the years, but it’s way too simplistic to think that this can be accomplished with the snap of the fingers.
