Secrets to video success

Start with an intimate understanding of your personas - what are their goals, pain points and triggers? What problem are you solving for them? What do you want them to DO as a result of watching your content? Be sure to include CTAs either embedded in your player or linked below the video so people can take that next important step.

Clearly define what stage in your buyer's journey your content is intended to serve - is it awareness, consideration, or decision stage content? This will impact the choice of channels to use, which impacts the length, tone, and delivery of your video content. 

Production value is important. The previous points will help you determine if video shot on a mobile device is suitable, or if you'll need top-end production levels. We find that something in-between works well for most of our clients.

Host your video on the right platform. We use Vidyard and Wistia players so we can control the user experience, and so we can set up advanced tracking and nurture programmes. But YouTube is great for discovery, so be sure to align your platform with the goals of the content.
