VIDEO SHOULD NOT BE LAGGING ITS OBJECTIVE

In such a ruthless competition where every second plays a vital role at some level, the viewer would be going to invest his time ‘in minutes’ on your video. Therefore, it has to be direct and very clear regarding the demonstration. One extra second may unfit your video for many time-constrained platforms like Twitter. Unnecessary elongation of a video could convert your efforts and time into waste.

BENEFIT - VIDEOS GO WITH VIEWER’S MOOD & INTEREST

A Video is something which luckily goes as per every generation’s interest & comfort.

The younger generation is already tech-friendly who won’t require an answer of ‘WHY VIDEO’ for promotion? While the older generation would be happy not digging their eyes on small & long texts anymore. Rather they’d get something more comprehensible, audible and entertaining.

Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, and many such applications are assimilating as well as accepting video content to a larger extent. Not only they are welcoming it but also it is believed that Facebook and Instagram are likely to have changed their daily-feed-algorithm and made it video abundant.

The feed at the home page which you scroll up and down usually is believed to be set in such a manner that you would surely find a video after every 3 or 4 image/text posts. Or it could be more frequent.

 

TECHNICAL PERSPECTIVE IS EQUALLY CRUCIAL

The term ‘production’ in Video production has nothing to do with finance as it seems like. In fact, here it revolves around the ‘Direction’ of video and ‘Video Editing Tools’ i.e. post-production work.

A well-directed & short video with minimum unnecessary things works best. As far as tactics behind the Direction of a video is concerned, ‘Minimalism’ is an approach that works always out. It consists of near about 80 percent of blank-negative space (which can be adjusted) in the frame, while the product gets to cover the remaining space of the frame as shown in an image below. One can implement the same method while a video shoots as well by keeping the background mono-colored or blank which lets the product shine only and keep the eyes on the product only because of least distractions in it.

Video quality will not be an issue for anyone living in a mediocre city as well. All credits to an outrageous evolution of camera phones and easy availability of a DSLR camera near to you that can shoot a general video with superior quality artlessly. One really doesn’t need to invest a bag on it. Things where one need to put some efforts on are ‘direction and storyline of a video, which has to be short in duration, bright and clear in the demonstration and unique in direction.

If one is financially sound and can pay an arm and a leg for something, he can opt for VFX effects in his video, which might levy him some amount because VFX is an in-demand thing today. Also, there are many easily obtainable Software that could work for us such as–KDEnlive, Pitivi, Shotcut, Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut X(Mac) etc. Adobe After-effects is a pioneer known for mind-blowing video effects. Much other basic Software which is sufficient for adequate video editing are easily available. For e.g. Windows Movie Maker etc.

Ultimately, if your precise-clear-well edited video would anyhow touch the hearts of your viewers, you’ll get your foot in the door & may not need to ask anyone to promote it further. People usually share the content they like. Enjoy Free promotions!

Some of the brands are even assimilating themselves in a disguised way through the medium of videos. They create promotional videos by putting their name on it but not with the original product which they are patent. Why they are doing so?

‘Carlsberg’ is an example of such a methodology. As some products like alcohol are not legal or ethical to sale everywhere in such a large platform like television or radio, therefore, the company choose to market their names by adopting another product.

‘Carlsberg’ is a brand which promotes itself by showcasing ‘Glasses’ having ‘Carlsberg’ written on it over television, but actually is an alcohol brand. Undoubtedly, this is a wise marketing strategy but the key here is they’ve made it possible through VIDEO.

Could they anyway have done that better without a visual representation of their name?

The ultimate goal is to promote its name, whether it is done indirectly or directly. And the medium they choose is ‘video production’.
