How To Create a Successful Video Marketing Campaign: A Guide for Experienced Marketers
Hey, you savvy marketers! (Yes, you). It's time to face the music: video marketing is no longer an option. It's a necessity. Why? Because according to research, people are more drawn to videos than any other type of advertising material out there. So, if you're not on the video marketing bandwagon yet, you're definitely missing out.
But don't you worry; we've got your back. We've put together a step-by-step guide to help you create a killer video marketing campaign that will make your competition green with envy. So, let's dive in and get ready to rock your audience's socks off!
Warning: Much of this isn’t rocket science. But it’s often the foundational (obvious) stuff that needs the most work in order to really drive a successful video campaign forward.
Step 1: Identify Your Target Audience
First things first, identify your target audience and make sure your message is tailored specifically to their needs. If you're trying to sell skateboards to a group of grandmas, you might want to rethink your strategy. Unless these grandmas are extra rad, that is.
Once you've identified your target audience, tailor your message to their needs. This will ensure that your content resonates with your audience and leads to top-notch engagement.
Step 2: Determine Your Goals and KPIs
Next, determine your goals and KPIs for the campaign. What do you want to achieve? More website traffic? Higher conversion rates? World domination? (Okay, maybe not that last one.)
By setting clear goals and KPIs, you'll be able to track the success of your campaign and make adjustments as needed.
Step 3: Develop a Content Strategy
Now that you know who you're targeting and what you want to achieve, it's time to develop a content strategy that aligns with your brand messaging and campaign goals.
This could include creating a series of videos that tell a story or highlight different aspects of your product or service. Or, it could involve developing a viral video that's shareable and likely to get a lot of views.
Step 4: Create Engaging and Shareable Video Content
Sometimes, even the biggest brands skip the first three steps and zip past a brief in the excitement to make something awesome. We like to step back to the beginning and understand as much as possible before we dive in.
Once you have a content strategy and goals in place, it's time to create engaging and shareable video content that resonates with your audience. This could involve using humor, storytelling, or emotional appeals to connect with your viewers. Use your creative courage (what’s that?) here.
This is where the real magic happens. You want to create video content that's not only engaging and shareable but also resonates with your audience.

Step 5: Leverage Various Distribution Channels
Next, you'll need to spread your video content like butter on toast by leveraging various distribution channels such as social media, email, and paid advertising. Don't just sit back and wait for viewers to magically appear, be proactive and get your content in front of as many people as possible! That way, you can sit back, relax, and watch the engagement roll in like a beach ball at a music festival.
For each channel, you can recut your assets in new ways to better conform to the platform. You can even recut smaller versions to create ad units and prevent fatigue.
Step 6: Measure and Analyze Campaign Performance
Finally, measuring and analyzing campaign performance is important so you can optimize future campaigns based on data-driven insights. This will help you continually improve your video marketing efforts and stay ahead of the competition.
