Types of Promotion Video
In an attempt to maximize the effectiveness of the budget of a promotional campaign, the first step is to select the most appropriate type of promotional videos. In accordance with the purposes and target audience of the marketing campaigns, promotional videos are typically categorized into the following types:
Every company should have a video, showcasing the best side of its company’s image, which can further improve its reputation. The ultimate goal of having such a video is to promote the positive image and unique culture of the company. It does not only require exquisite visual elements and lively content, but also needs a unified image about the company and its products across all social media platforms. This type of promotion videos is characterized by a low investment, a focused group of audience and flexible locations for playing the video.
Having an effective promotion video for the best-quality products or services is like the icing on the cake. These are the guaranteed steps to success. With a careful selection of channels, different groups of target audience can be reached. They can better understand the features of the products and services, and then have stronger desires to purchase them, resulting in an increase in sales volume. In this way, having a video for product or service promotion is a low-cost strategy, yet it can generate the most effective and influencing marketing effects.
IPO Video for Financial Roadshows
As a company expands and is about to go public, it represents a key milestone. Prior to being listed, it is essential for investors to gain knowledge about the company’s background, business natures, capabilities, developmental goals, market prospects, etc, before they invest money in the company’s shares. During a financial roadshow or IPO conference, an excellent publicity video can draw investors’ attention and gain their confidence. IPO videos resemble promotion videos, in a way that they both enhance the company’s image, but the major difference is that publicity videos place greater emphasis on citing figures and data. Therefore, in the course of the production of a publicity video, the production house is required to work closely with the financial public relations companies, in order to ensure all data and figures are accurate and precise.
Distinctive characters and touching storylines can often captivate the audience. Therefore, microfilms often give surprising marketing effects. To shoot a microfilm, more actors and venues are involved; hence, the production time tends to be longer. Yet, microfilms usually have a more complete storyline and enjoyability, and can be broadcasted through various platforms. The internet is the most typical platform for playing a microfilm. Humours, fashion trends, charity and education, business and commerce can be some of the possible themes of the microfilms. Storylines of the microfilms can be written independently or in series.
Event Opening Video
During the grand-opening of large-scale events, there is always a wonderful opening video to showcase the theme and content of the event to the guests and visitors. Event opening videos must be produced before the commencement of the events. Innovative techniques should be adopted to capture the audience’s attention and the whole message should be conveyed within one or two minutes. A high-quality event opening video can definitely make a good event even better.
This type of videos is often chosen for online promotion since the production process is relatively simple and promising. The main focus is on the users’ first-hand experience about certain product or service, and they share their feelings in the video. Since the video content is about personal experience, there are not many post-production modifications needed. This type of videos can generate promising marketing effects.
Street Interview Video
Street interview videos involve “person-on-the-street interviews”. Preliminary investigation must be conducted, such as setting the interview targets and preparing a handful of questions. The shooting is relatively simple, with an emphasize of realism. Post-production is also relatively uncomplicated and straightforward, which can keep the costs down since salaries for hiring actors and rental fees for venues are not required. As long as the interview questions are well-designed and there are adequate interviewees, it is not difficult to obtain a wonderful shot to impress the audience with surprises. “Street interviews” can bring out ordinary people’s queries and doubts. Then, solutions to these questions are provided at the end of the video, which are the products or the services of the clients.
