There is no denying that digital media has completely revolutionized the way we promote our products and services and sell them to the world. Companies, businesses, and ventures of all kinds and sizes need a digital media strategy to help their work stand out among the noisy digital market place. A great way to do just that is through video.
Why A Digital Video Strategy Is Important
Digital video strategy is increasingly popular across all forms of social and digital media platforms. Studies and experience alike have shown that video is far more engaging and effective in communicating with target audiences within the target market segment for a number of reasons. For starters, there is movement. Unlike a static photo, videos move and offer up a wide range of audiovisual features that ensure viewers can hear, read, watch, and engage with the video in a more dynamic and memorable way. Additionally, using complementary colors, appropriate images, film, font faces, and more businesses, companies, and initiatives can maximize the power of video.
Three Components of A Successful Video Strategy
The combination of color, images, film, font, and consistent posting all combine to help design the intricate features of a digital media strategy. Here’s how it can be made to work for you:
Get clear on your message(s)
Clarifying your message(s) will help ensure that your messaging will be understood by the target audience and responded to in the desired way. That is, you will be able to ensure that the call-to-action is effective and that the target market segment will subscribe to your mailing list, buy your product, attend your event or any other action you wish to have them take.
Define your brand design
In addition to a clear message, an important part of your brand is how you present that message. As such, when creating a video marketing strategy, it is important to clearly outline how the various elements (like images, fonts, colors, etc.) will be treated in your video presentations. Doing so ensures that the presentation in itself communicates a particular message.
Build a content calendar
A consistent schedule is a final component in any digital media strategy for video. While it is great to have videos that are well-presented with a messaging that resonates and encourages action, it is important to be consistently putting out this high-quality content. This is also a part of brand-building and will help you build trust with your target audience.
