When you are running an online video production campaign using effective online video advertising, you need to measure the success of the campaign, and use the results you obtain to tweak the approach you are using.
Online video requires significant investment, and you therefore need to measure the Return on Investment (ROI). Here are some ways to measure and improve that ROI.
ROI Is Measured In Different Ways
Sometimes it is a little difficult to get an accurate reading on your Return on Investment. You make videos to position yourself as an expert in your niche. How do you measure the increase in your credibility?
You build your database through email addresses you collect. It is difficult to measure how this is going to translate into sales, although it probably will.
You may create a series of how to videos using top notch video production equipment. It is not easy to measure exactly how that will increase the reach of your reputation amongst industry leaders.
You share your video on social media sites – again, it would be difficult to quantify the ROI of such exposure using online video advertising.
Sometimes videos do not actually make you money, but they save costs. Online video can keep staff informed of new developments. You don’t have to foot the bill for expensive travel for your staff – rather than come to you for a meeting, they watch a video you make. Videos can also be used for customer service.
Just as you would measure the success of an online ad, so you need to measure the success of your business videos. Clearly define your expectations and goals. You may have included a video on the landing page of a Pay Per Click campaign. Did you get as many sales or leads as expected?
Improve Your ROI
One excellent way to improve the ROI on your videos is to include a clear call to action. The viewer needs to know exactly what you want him to do at the end of the video. By telling him whether to pick up the phone, opt in or give his email address, you are moving him one step closer to purchasing what it is you have on offer.
A good video production company will help you in your video campaign and will help you measure its success. Choose your company wisely so that you are helped in all aspects of creating the video, from pre-production, post-production to marketing.
