Web Video Marketing: crucial questions to ask by StratDV Media

Create a video marketing plan before you start.

We all know that “prior planning prevents poor performance.”

Web video is an incredibly powerful and cost effective communications tool, its important however to put together a video action plan with discrete goals (plan from comScore “Online Video by the Numbers”).

Here are some helpful questions to consider:

Is your goal to…
Increase website/microsite visits?
Improve brand opinion?
Introduce a brand message to a larger audience or a more niche audience?
Drive direct online or offline purchase behavior?
The technology infrastructure of the Internet affords these opportunities to you.

Determine where and how your target audience is consuming video

Keep your mind open to using the new opportunities online video affords:
Using a YouTube Partner as a brand advocate
Developing branded content that spurs conversation
Cross pollinating your social media campaigns with video
Use the many resources and measurement companies available to determine if your goals have been met
Most any goal can be easily and discretely measured

About stratdv

An Award winning independent video editor, shooter, and creative producer with over 10 years in the field of corporate video production.

“My goal is to serve my clients, be flexible, responsive, and provide video content that is truly reflective of their vision and mission.”

More than a shooter or editor, I’m an MBA grad with a marketing communications and sales background, and a diverse work history, having served in higher education as well as high tech. I bring a consultative business understanding to my engagements with clients.

I’ve consulted and produced video projects that have been used by Alcoa Corporation, AOL, Domino’s Pizza, IBM, Sodexo, NRTC, and a host of other companies and non-profits since 1999. Additionally, my work has garnered national attention, I’m a two time Telly Award winner, and W3 award recipient by IAVA (International Academy of Visual Arts).

I feel the most effective way forward in my business model is to “team” with my client, and help them effectively and cogently communicate with video.

Web video is the most powerful and cost effective medium to advance your message on the market.

Samples of my work can be viewed at my website http://stratDV.com, there is also some information about me and the facilities I have available for studio production in Annapolis. References are available on request.
