Creating an intelligent and competitive content for your video will surely boost your business’ sales and attract more markets that are not just under your target audience. Video marketing is used by over-the-top and popular brands to engage more consumers to buy their products. No matter how small your business is, as long as you know how to make a quality content video, you are going to hit the number one spot.
Alongside with all these effective results of video marketing, you should also know what to avoid so that you can able to produce a more interesting and gratifying content for your audience.
Here are the common mistakes to avoid in video marketing:
1. Do not just make a video because you “just to” or “have to” make a video. Planning is the most vital part of marketing because you need to list down different strategies and attacks you can make to either turn down your competitors or just shake the world upside down. You don’t just post something because you “have to” or you “need to” unless you are planning to miss the mark. You have to think twice of the content of the video and always treat it as a marketing campaign with a transparent objective for your audiences to know.
2. Avoid videos that are taking too much of your viewers’ time. Research shows that most of us are easily discouraged to watch a video if it is too long or not engaging enough from the first ten seconds of the clip. These are two of the main reasons why you should stay away from making long videos. Not all people are willing to watch a twenty minute campaign ad.
3. Poor realization of who your target audiences are. As an entrepreneur, you have to know how to address your potential clients correctly. If you are aiming for people who are passionate about makeup that falls under the age bracket of 18 to 25 years old, interview men and women who uses makeup that are under the said set and do an in-depth research why these people love using makeup, what are the benefits of using it, etc.,
4. Not converging on a specific topic. Before you start making a video, please make sure you have your plans straight and all of the content you are going to share are nothing but focused on what you want your audience to understand. If you are going to talk about you, your employees and all other random things that are not thoroughly related to what you wish your viewers to absorb, they will end up getting bored and the worst case is, most probably they will learn nothing from the whole video itself. That would be the utmost insult a business person could ever receive.
Video marketing is one of the most prevalent strategies in the marketing field. So if you are new to the business, make sure you take note of the common mistakes we mentioned above because one mistake equals a forever question to you and your company’s credibility.
