This is a guest post by Julie Batkiewicz, executive producer of Monte Content material. 

I have been in media production for more than 15 years and I have worked with a broad variety of clients—from huge brands and tv networks to compact- and medium-sized organizations. No matter who the client is, I usually commence the approach of developing a promotional video by answering a couple of important concerns that will place the project on a prosperous trajectory:  

  • What targets do you have for the video?
    • What do you want to occur? If the video is on your web site, include things like a type to gather inbound leads. If you are posting on social media, be clear about subsequent measures. Defining precisely what you want from the viewer can outcome in additional conversions.
  • Who is your audience and exactly where are they watching videos?
    • The video will want to match the distribution platform and each and every video deliverable will appear slightly various. If your audience is on Facebook, the video will want subtitles and some opening graphics to catch the viewer’s consideration. You can take the exact same video and reduce it into several versions for various platforms. Spend consideration to time restrictions if you are purchasing any media.
  • What form of video do you want?
    • There are numerous alternatives based on what your solution or service is. Are you carrying out an animated explainer video, a buyer testimonial or a solution video?* Do some analysis and discover videos to ascertain what you like and what you dislike. This will assist you create the inventive notion.
  • How does this match into your all round advertising method?
    • Involve everybody on your advertising group when creating a video. Immediately after meeting with the social media director, Search engine marketing manager and graphic designer, you will get a far better understanding of how to finest make and use the content material.
