The successful businesses are opting for real-time analytics in order to optimize the contents that would keep the individuals engaged. It was a traditional advertising fundamental to use the informative contents.

For the fast pacing living strategy, any individual would not like to waste the valuable time in reading the contents to source information about any product or services provided by the company. With such tendencies, video contents have emerged to be the best medium of sharing information.

Videos Plus Content Marketing = Awesome Response

Videos have taken up the content marketing in a high defined way. It has been proven that video marketing has exploded in a bigger version and accounts for around half of the entire internet traffic. Report says, around 93% of marketers use video for online marketing, sales and developing communication.

This report features that the industry is putting loads of faith in the video marketing strategy. It was the days of past when the idea of video was an afterthought for businesses. With the changing time, this idea of using video boosted up in an amazing way.

You must be aware that YouTube is owned by Google. YouTube has spectacular achievements from history till the current days in bringing millions of viewers every month. Video marketing has become the most useful tool for the entrepreneurs and the highly established companies in increasing business access.

The most important fact that every business needs to know is what video type would be able to deliver your message in the most effective way. This is imperative to know because the video type that would be interesting for the B2B solution may not be interesting for B2C platform.

The main point of any video is to increase the awareness of ad, brand and the most important return on investment. Every business needs to be certain that the video being developed would help in achieving the business goals. The video needs to share the imperative aspects of the brand and showcase the importance of the product or services provided by the company. Even you need to keep this; one video is not enough to attract potential customers as well as revenue. The number of relevant videos you develop the increased number of customer access you would get, and even you would be able to stretch dollars in more.

You certainly can’t argue that the videos are more superior to the articles or blogs. Which person would opt to go through numerous of words on the page to source information regarding the products or services? It would certainly be a waste of time and effort in reading. The images are more superior to the word or text contents which continue to be higher with the videos. These videos have higher impact on the viewers and are referred to be the most engaging contents. The consumers get more focused and impressed with the videos done effectively.

You indeed need to make a video that would attract the consumers in large. There are few strategies which you need to follow for developing a user engaging video. Few of the aspects are defined below.

Video Making

For making a video stuff, it was a traditional option to go into any studio with special sound impact strategy. This helped in creating a pretty video with high definition. With the changing strategies, you need not access any studio anymore; this is because the consumers are much more focused on the content than the pretty fact. Having a good budget for producing a video is good but using the tools is a must.

Use of Still Images

Videos are indeed superior to the still images but sometimes the still images or photographs can be more convincing than the videos for some of the selective products. If you intend to use some photographs in the video, then make sure that those are royalty free. With the selection of the right image, you also need to be sure about the right size. The videos on internet are of 320X240 pixels, but you can consider buying images of larger size so that you would not lose the resolution of the image as it would be compressed while it is used in the video. It is advised to use the images of 800X600 pixels for the online videos.

Voiceover

Another imperative aspect of an online video is its sound or voice. If you are using images in your video, then you would certainly use voiceover on the scrolling images. If so, make sure that the voiceover is done professionally. You must hire professional voiceover artist for the recording or else the unprofessional person for voiceover may be the reason of inviting negative impact on the engagement fact of the video. Then, the music to be used in the developed video is the priority. If you are planning to use any existing music then make sure it is royalty free or else you would have to pay the artist or the owner/maker of the music.

Short Videos

The new and latest mantra of developing user engaging video is keeping the video length short. It is advised to keep the video length less than a minute, but if it is impossible then definitely the video mustn’t exceed than 2 minutes. As per surveys, the users generally lose interest in watching videos more than 2 minutes. Before the users decide the video in full length, they watch the first 10 seconds and likely move on.

You need to count really in the first 10 seconds of the video if you really want to grab attention of the users. Don’t keep the spicy and attraction at the end, push them early that would push the viewer’s hot buttons. Within the short span of time, the video must be informative and attractive including all the aspects you need to share with the viewers. This would be the best video developing strategy that would catch the attention of the viewers.

Use the Testimonials

If your product or service can grab good customer feedback, then you could add those in the video. These videos with customer’s testimonials can be uploaded on YouTube and believe this would entertain more business access and viewers that would incredibly get reflected on your turnover, and you would be able to stretch dollars.

  1. Video Trailers – the video trailers are of short time span that highlights the main objectives which are just enough for hooking a desire to get through the full story. This strategy can be implemented for your business products or services.
  2. Videos for Relation- develop the videos to create a strong relation with the consumers. The video format must be able to deliver your content in the best way that would be appreciated by the viewers.
  3. Video Tutorial- using the video tutorial format you can feature the way to solve a problem rather than forcing them to get in through the content. This is indeed a beneficial idea for the businesses.

Developing a video in the right way and format and incorporating the same for business development can be highly helpful for the businesses. The right format video would drive more traffic and sales towards your product or sales and business. Video marketing is probably the best way for stretching your dollars.

Why Facebook Says Your Video Ads Should Be Silent

Did your attention get drawn suddenly while scrolling on your Facebook Newsfeed page! Is it the irritating sound of the unexpected videos? As per a recent research was done by Facebook, the videos on the Facebook Newsfeed of the user starts playing aloud it is expected that maximum of the users would develop a negative impression both for the ad as well as Facebook, the social media platform.

For this issue, Facebook has synchronized its features and has recommended the advertisers to create the videos which are not depended up on the sound of the video. Recently Facebook has released set of new incredible features that enables the businesses or the advertisers for optimizing the videos with silent reviewing feature.

Facebook: The Social Media Giant Helps To Gain Heavy Consumer Traffic

Facebook is certainly one of the best platforms for the advertisers to gain heavy consumer traffic. With an intention to stream your business, product or service on the social media platform you must be aware about the recent changes that Facebook involves for the video ads. There are numerous of video ads on social media that includes audio.

As per the social media giant Facebook, certain step has been initiated for protecting the user, Facebook, and the advertisers. The main concern of such issue is that when any unexpected video with audio begins playing loudly at an unexpected time, the users will give negative reaction instantly.

Facebook Advice the Advertisers to Create Video without Sound

Videos without sounds for advertisement! This statement can make the advertisers worried in great extent. This fact correlated to the ages of before the 1920s when the movies were without sound. The movies with sound were introduced in the 1920s which were indeed a remarkable achievement.

Almost after a century, with such declaration of Facebook, it is indeed a step to move back to the age of silent movies/videos. For this, Facebook has released set of new features and has recommended the businesses to create and feature the video that doesn’t depend on sound.

Videos without Sound Would Turn As Unveiling Tool for Advertisers

As per Facebook, these videos without sound would be helpful for the businesses as well as the platform.

These changes would prove to be the most unveiling tool in the future days. With such option, the businesses would be able to use automatic captions in the videos rather than adding them independently. The advertisers posting ads on Facebook would be able to access a new reporting metric which would display the percentage of people who watch video ads with sound.

Advertisers Would Be Able To Increase the Access By 12%

By including such captions, the advertisers would be able to increase the video access by 12%. In the previous time, the advertisers uploaded the ads with captions by embedding or uploading their own caption files.

With the modern trend, the advertisers could review the automated captions and edit it before posting. As per a report, people around the world watch more than 100 hours of videos on the Social Giant platform, Facebook every day. This reflects the strategy that each minute is valuable and is countable for the advertisers.

Facebook Encourages the Advertisers to Express Messages Visually

For this reason, Facebook is encouraging the partners of advertisements to express their messages visually including the captions, logos, and product. A review stated that around 41% of the videos on Facebook were meaningless without sound in it.

With the new feature introduced by Facebook, the captions would be able to reveal the essence of the video. The video needs to be viewer engaging and not to offend the viewer with loud sound. As per a report, the first three seconds of a video accounts 47% of the campaign value and 74% in the next 10 seconds.

Facebook Launches New Features of Captioning the Videos

Facebook provides the best solution by allowing captioning ads so that you would get the sense of what you are scrolling for from the past and the advertisers hope for one or two videos to be watched. This is the point where captioning plays a vital role.

Captioning being a fast and effective way for expressing the users what the video is all about. The social media giant Facebook also has plans for launching new reporting metrics that would assist the advertisers for viewing the shares of the videos. Facebook has also made the option of 100% view buying option globally available.

Engaging Image in the Video Is an Effective Element

Facebook reports that a common and effective element of an effective video ad is an engaging image which displays before the video starts playing. Facebook clearly has stated that, though the video ad consists of sound the advertisers need to confirm that the message intended to be delivered mustn’t depend upon on audio. Probably out of 10 videos on Facebook without audio 4 videos don’t make any sense that certainly is a reason for the viewers to get irritated, this creates a bad impact on the brand’s image.

Advertisers Need To Take Creative Considerations for Growing the Number of Views

The advertisers need to take in new creative considerations and work harder if they intend to earn longer views. The creative shop and marketing science team at Facebook after analysing Facebook and Instagram videos finds out the element that would help the advertisers to understand the perfect way to create an effective video ad for the feed-based platform.

The videos must be created with the basic creative element that would help in getting connected with the audiences and inspire the action. It’s imperative to capture the attention of the audiences right away. Using the video thumbnails images and titles would hook the audiences into your story. The brand colours, themes, and images help in connecting people with the video and indirectly with your brand.

Loud Sound Of The Video Annoys The Viewers!

According to some tests, people can recall the mobile news feed content after watching it for only quarter of second. The real value of the video ad increases with duration, whether you measure ad recall or brand awareness or sales.

While the mobile ads work in favour of the advertisers, the mobile feed environments people, in general, prefer for the sound input. But when this unexpected loud sound troubles the users they react negatively. This certainly is a drawback for the platform and the advertiser as well as the brand.

The video ads on Facebook are not the TV ads with loud sound. It is expected that any person would get annoyed when you are scrolling through your feed and a loud sound of the video ad plays. Along with you, the persons near you are also likely to get annoyed with such loud sound. Facebook instigates the advertisers to rethink the ad strategy. With the newly launched feature of captioning, the advertisers would be able to review and edit the automated captions before posting the video ads on the Newsfeed.

Grab Attention of the Viewers with the Silent Videos That Are Effectively Planned

Along the advertisers, Facebook also intends to grab the attention of the viewers quickly. Facebook made a research on the video ads on the platform as well as on Instagram and came to a conclusion that the effective videos ads share a common feature.

The common feature is displaying an image before the ad starts which grabs the attention of the viewers. The advertisers are advised, before uploading the video ads on Facebook, they must make sure that the video is easily understood without the audio.

We need to wait for few days to witness the effectiveness of no-sound policy, whether it would impact the effectiveness of the advertiser or would degrade the image of the brand.

A chicken leg is a rare dish.”

“A rare dish, indeed, and I’m going to get to the bottom of it.

I’m a Test Man, and this my story. I serve on an elite investigative force
of men and women, that make sure the Verizon Wireless network is tops.

My beat is Florida. Test teams across the country cover a million miles
each year. We prowl the big cities and the little sticks because every Joe
deserves reliable wireless coverage. Fast, too. Verizon 4G LTE isn’t code,
it’s call letters for the nation’s fastest wireless service.

We roll in high-tech rigs, hooked up with the latest Verizon gadgets making
thousands of calls and data connections each day. We carry the competitors
gear, too, to snoop on their spotty service. Poor stiffs.

So who is that mysterious chicken leg lady? She’s a Harvard Phonics voice

For Verizon customers, case closed, test teams make it a tasty dish…of

Needless is to talk about the kind of attention a live web chat drags when a celebrity is upfront the shooter. Though the claim that everyone is not a celebrity is justified, it’s also justified at the same time that all don’t mind a little lesser attention than a celebrity drags.

If your product is qualitatively good, and you are inviting any queries regarding it live upfront, it’s obvious to drag attentions. In fact, those with almost no intention of investing for such a product at present also love to take part in the process. And, moreover, all these simply cost nothing. Everyone knows it well that a service station for similar purpose would have cost hefty.

Expansion Is Just Effortless:

Marketing is a concept of multiplication. In fact, a brand’s popularity/marketing gets rampant through the people only. It’s the people/customers who love to talk about something they have tried demanding nothing. Otherwise, there is no corporate house on the earth is big enough to spend the amount of making its products available with each person/customer it enjoys.

The combo of social media and video make it even more interesting. As mentioned above, neither it costs anything for a web chat session nor does it cost anything for a viewer to put a click on like, share or comment button. Needless is to say how quick this process spreads and reaches millions in no time costing nothing.

Free Of Cost Reporting and Analysis:

Marketing is just impossible without analysis. The concerned person would definitely wish to have the daily, weekly, monthly, and overall performance report. If someone has ever created even a simple social media page (irrespective of the niche) must know it well how adequately these platforms deliver the reports of those like the number of viewers, number of views, total number of likes/follows, growth or decline reports, etc.

More such interesting features become evident the more someone researches. Making things more interesting, reports say that a video content increase the number of audience by 10% more. The rate of return has also been found to be increasing by 46% through the process. Again, the point to be noted is that all these hardly cost anything.

No Tools, Technicalities or Extensive Research:

Each step costs in marketing; needless is to talk about the TV/magazine/newspaper ads, in fact, the online strategies like pay per click, PPM, email marketing, etc. also do cost. On the other hand, those like social media marketing deliver a lot more without any cost. There is no limit to the number of posts one can make on these social media sites, neither hence the shares or likes.

And all these are a business. Well, posting extraneous sometimes feels like spam. In fact, a couple or three quality posts a day can be pretty enough in bagging the bucks.

It’s Inspiring Despite Being Genuine:

The prominence of video marketing becomes evident straightaway through the fact that having a video on the home page hikes the conversion rate to about 46%. Well, upon taking a closer dig on the videos over these sites it becomes apparent about the costs involved.

Even an introductory does the job. And, the same video upon being shared over the social media sites just doubles/triples the audience count. If the blogging or tutorial sites can make the most using this strategy, why can’t it be advantageous for a product site?

Taking Most Of The Million Dollar Feedback And Its Advantage:

Customer service has been one of the crucial parts in success of business. The feedbacks received through the process matters a lot. If the feedback is positive, it offers the most phenomenal boost, and a negative feedback, of course, makes the points of improvement apparent.

The point of business here is that there is nothing more effective as a marketing weapon than the positive feedbacks of the customers. In fact, things have gone much more enjoyable in the world of the web, videos, and social media. Just shoot a video of the customer talking about his happy feelings with your product and put it over the social media page. Needless is to mention; people take videos of such really serious.

It’s Like a Readily Served Plate; Just Needed To Take a Bite

It’s almost impossible for a business to survive without an online presence. Hence, applying a compliant online marketing strategy becomes obvious. An online marketing strategy fundamentally is to drag more number of viewers for your site/product. All those expenses of plug-ins, keyword research, etc., are meant for the same intention only.
