Successful Video & Marketing Automation in 5 Steps

Successful Video & Marketing Automation in 5 Steps

At this point, you know why Marketing Automation is so important. You understand why video is a great communication tool. You’ve seen how goals influence marketing automation, and how video can be incorporated into those goals.

Last time, we talked all about why using videos and Marketing Automation is beneficial for your business. Today, we are going to dive in deeper and discuss Successful Video & Marketing Automation in 5 Steps.

 

Successful Video & Marketing Automation in 5 Steps

 

  1. Center it around the Story, Not the Sale. There is a heap of sales clutter on the Internet that is actively annoying and repelling your customers. Don’t let your brand be that guy – instead, your video should be centered on the story and not the sale. Remember, the same rules that apply for written content marketing apply for video marketing – concentrate on the value you’re providing for your customers.
  2. Make it the Best 10 Seconds Ever. 1/5 of your viewers will click away from a video within 10 seconds or less. Short and to the point. Get right to the grit of the tale and manage expectations from the outset (within the first 5 to 10 seconds). Try sparking your audience’s curiosity by asking questions and using teasers to hook their attention right away. Your video should immediately convey its value and answer that “why should I watch it?” question that will be on your audience’s mind.
  3. Lighten Up and Stop Being so Boring! Encourage your video creators to be creative and take risks. Think your B2B audience can’t handle humor? Don’t feel constrained by what’s gone before you in your industry and don’t try to emulate your competitor’s stiff tone and drowsy script. Stand out and take a chance on being funny.
  4. Optimize for Search. The first thing you should do to derive the maximum SEO value from your video (before you upload your video to any sharing sites) is to host it on your own domain. It’s important to enable embedding on your video as this will help you increase the likelihood of receiving inbound marketing links. Ensure that your videos are tagged with relevant keywords and fully explained with fleshed out descriptions and unique titles. Keep this rule in mind: it is had a box, it has a purpose – Google needs you to fill it out to help you rank.
  5. Educate and Prove Yourself. Did you know that 65% of your audience are visual learners? One of the most powerful methods you can use for video marketing is to educate your audience. Teach your customers how to use your product or service and provide useful tips on how to make the most of it. Or, create a webinar to showcase your industry knowledge, position your brand as a thought leader, add value to your consumers’ lives and collect leads in the process.

Marketing Automation

5 Reasons Why Your Business Could Benefit from Marketing Automation

Staying up to date with the ongoing marketing trends these days means constantly researching, learning and trying new techniques and tools. The workload and responsibilities of a modern marketer change just as fast. Think of Facebook or Instagram. The new updates roll in so often that if you logged into your account after 6 months of absence, you probably wouldn’t even recognize the platform anymore.

Same goes for digital marketing. The tools and strategies are evolving every year, and it’s the marketers’ job to know how to manage it all.

For the last few months, we’ve been discussing the benefits of having a Mobile App and why it is crucial for your business to tap into that platform (read Mobile Apps for B2B companies and retail stores). This month, we will be exploring yet another digital strategy that’s absolutely worth considering and implementing. Let’s talk Marketing Automation, shall we?

 

Marketing Automation

 

In simple words, Marketing Automation is a software thanks to which you can automate your marketing actions. Think of email marketing, CRM, social media, phone campaigns, digital advertising and many more other channels combined into one marketing effort.

Since Marketing Automation system is doing great so far (91% of the most successful users agree that it was “very important” to the overall success of their marketing across channels), here are 5 more reasons why your business could benefit from it.

 

5 Reasons Why Your Business Could Benefit from Marketing Automation

  1. Time management. Marketing automation allows marketers to recognize a specific target and then tailor the content in order to reach that customer. Such shift in focus allows users to quickly determine prospects that can be converted.
  2. Improved Communication. With a marketing automation software, you can spot your hot lead right away, which makes it easier for emailing and following up once the potential client or customer is still hooked on your content.
  3. Personalization. Marketers connect with unique customers through tailored content based on their profile data and purchasing behavior. If the lead is getting more personalized content, it is very likely to spend more time on your website.
  4. Organization. Thanks to Marketing Automation, sifting through leads can be done in a more organized, quicker and efficient manner across multiple channels. Same goes for distributing content.
  5. Customer Loyalty & Retention. In 2017, it costs more to seek new customers, as opposed to retaining the loyal ones that you already have. Marketing Automation is said to deliver even better customer experience across all channels.

 

There you have it. Marketing Automation is here to stay, so it’s time to optimize your strategy and watch your results skyrocket! Are you ready?

If you’d like to learn more about this topic, stay tuned for more content as we will be discussing more Marketing Automation in the coming weeks.

Making your business social can increase sales when you do it right. Finding the right social medium platform to effectively engage with your ideal customer means evaluating your Buyer Personas  and adapting your social media plan accordingly.

Get Your Business Social Now or Regret It Later

Get Your Business Social Now or Regret It Later

Don’t believe me?

Then do not read this article on why your business needs to wake up and smell the social media tide rolling in. Actually, it is more like a tsunami – become a social butterfly now!

Get Your Business Social Now or Regret It Later

If you asked me a decade ago, or perhaps even five years ago, I would have said that social media is not a viable marketing tool for business. I was one of the many naysayers regarding using social media as a core component of a digital marketing plan. After all, there was simply no way to measure the ROI of social media marketing. Well, I am big enough to admit I was dead wrong.

Much as I hate to say it, social media has become a most effective way to create and maintain brand awareness, manage your business’ reputation and to show off your products and/or services.

That being said, a haphazard approach to a social media campaign is not advisable. Please take the time to learn where your Ideal Customers are and the best way to engage and provide them with quality content that they want. Develop Buyer Persona so that you can better determine what social networks to target.

You may find that you have a variety of buyer personas that dictate you segment your social media marketing efforts in order to hit the right person at the right time in the right place with the right message.

A good way to do this is to do a little ‘social listening.’  Twitter is an amazing tool for this. Alternatively, use apps, such as HootSuite, to monitor certain words, phrases or hashtags.  Understanding what people are saying about your brand, competitor or industry can help to mold your marketing effort or products. This will allow you to give your customers what they want — not what you think they want!

Make it a point to give value over viral content. While there have been some companies that have perfected or lucked into creating viral content—it is not a realistic goal. In fact, trying to be witty or sarcastic with your content might just backfire and hurt your brand. Tread carefully; your online reputation is a valuable asset that you do not want to treat lightly or flippantly.

Use social media to provide quality content on a regular basis. The rule of thumb is 4-1-1; provide four fluffy or fun pieces to one post focusing on your industry and one post plugging your product or services.  Engagement is the key to successfully marketing your business on social media. Every ‘like’ ‘share’ and ‘retweet’ expands your reach exponentially.

By the way, social media marketing is not just a B2C strategy. LinkedIn and Twitter have a myriad of uses in B2B. Networking with your industry professionals or target industries online can be invaluable and a great branding tool. Develop name recognition before you send your first email or make your first call. These sites can help get targeted leads who have already engaged with your brand and see it a source of value in your area of expertise.
