Can your company's image help you achieve your ideal client?
Your prospective clients and customers are demanding video. You must supply it.
If you are looking to compete and exceed this year, research shows you will have to do so online. To do this effectively, it’s essential to satisfy the prospective customers’ huge appetites for online film and video. While print and TV advertising are on the decrease, corporate video production and marketing through webvideos are definitely on the rise.
Corporate videos are no longer just for the blue chips. They’re not gimmicky and they’re certainly not cheesy! Today, all businesses are benefiting enormously from good videography. Not only are videos more cost effective than paper advertising, but online videos can enable businesses to track who is seeing their sales pitch, and when. Companies are enjoying greater target audiences and far better margins; and advertising research suggests that video will be the most popular form of marketing, than it ever has been before.
When targeting that ideal client, what do you look for? What makes them look good? In order to achieve your ideal client, your marketing needs to mirror theirs. With the majority of marketing done online, a company’s website is its shop-front. Companies without video content on their websites will soon find themselves struggling to get noticed, falling behind the competition. Would you enter a shop with nothing in the window?
A well-produced corporate video, with expert marketing advice and service, showcasing who you are and what you do, is fast becoming integral to corporate success. It’s incredibly important that the video is done well; a badly created video has the potential to send out the wrong signals and images about the company, its service and its products; and can potentially destroy a company’s hard-earned reputation.
Web-users are extremely fickle; poor quality videography will have them “X-ing off” and browsing a competitor’s website. As internet bandwidth and film technology continue to get better, so too will the importance of engaging, well-crafted, incredibly well-produced video content. In most cases, it’s best left to professional video production companies.
If managed correctly by the right film production company, who can boast more than just one area of videography, video is a very powerful tool in today’s market. It’s essential that your business has a strategic video marketing plans in place for 2011.
