Creating Video Content Locally To Create A Global Connection

Posted by Lisa Van Riper on Aug 24, 2016 11:10:33 AM

Let’s be honest, one thing most of us can agree on is the importance of video. We have all stumbled across a video that has appeared out of the shadows of your social media news feed that has grabbed our attention. We don’t know who created it or whom it was even intended for. Yet, it managed to have an emotional impact. Video has the powerful potential and influence to bridge the gap and break cultural barriers – a single video can resonate and ignite an inner passion, excitement or moment without even saying a word – now that’s moving, amazing, and just simply awesome!

Everybody Loves Video, So Why Are You Hesitant?

Posted by Lisa Van Riper on Aug 1, 2016 11:47:49 AM

Everyone in the content marketing space is being told video, video, video!! - in today’s context of media and diverse viewing habits across consumers - I think it is safe to say video is driving the industry as we sit pressured, hesitant and overwhelmed in the passenger seat.

Let's not confuse "video editor" with "motion graphics". The two may draw some similarities, but at their core, they are not the same. It's like saying your dessert comes before your appetizer and dinner (sounds great, but not exactly the correct order!)

No Two Videos Are The Same

Posted by Lisa Van Riper on Jun 22, 2016 3:18:32 PM

You see a video on social media and think, "Wow! I want to create a video just like that! That will be perfect for our marketing needs!" The good news is you CAN create a video like that, but you CANNOT (and should not) create a video just like the one you saw. 

Every time you create a video (even when using the same video template), the video will turn out differently. The example you love had a specific goal in mind when it was being created. Chances are, the graphics, content, and even music you experienced with that video were all part of a plan to reach a specific audience for a specific product, service, or need. Can you attempt to recreate that video? Sure. But should you? No.

Ask yourself, "Will creating a video just like the one I saw really resonate with my target audience?" Chances are your answer is "No".
