Social Media Video Production Requires Authenticity To Be Successful
Social media video production definitely requires footage that is authentic to the business in order to be successful. Generic stock footage runs the risk of their being a perception gap that results in disappointment by your customers.
"We see all types of businesses slapping together social media videos in-house that do not use footage that is authentic to the business", says Rusty Squire, President of Sly Dog Production. He adds, "Doing this runs the distinct risk of your clients not recognizing your business when they do become customers".
"There are so many half-truths on the internet these days that people crave seeing greater levels of authenticity", says Squire. He adds, "Not creating customized videos for your business robs you of that ability to achieve authenticity".
"You have to think about what a social media video really is and it is a very short duration video of less than 60 seconds where you have the opportunity to engage and educate your customers", says Squire. He adds, "That is not a lot of time so your message has to be clear, concise and understood".
TWO TYPES OF SOCIAL MEDIA VIDEO PRODUCTION
Social media videos can really come in two forms:
- Posted to your social media page, in which case only existing subscribers will see it, and
- As targeted ads where you geographically and demographically target your video to your ideal customer who is not yet a subscriber.
"For the videos posted to your own social page I would suggest the goals be to educate and inform your existing customers", says Squire. He adds, "With videos used as ads you have to grab prospects attention and quickly tell how your business can solve their problem".
