Video has impact.
Visually, emotionally, commercially and especially on SEO.
For intensely visual humans, the power of strong video lies in converting images instantly into emotions.
For search engines, conveying data by video elevates the ranking in organic search results.
Three videos which I have presented recently in LinkedIn, Facebook and other social media, are impeccable examples of the creative art.
On Valentine’s Day, I was reminded of the brilliant video in which sensitive performances provided subtle counterpoint to a dramatic use of Post-It notes.
At a tech meet-up, a discussion of video led me to recall a simple concept conveyed by balletic camera movements. A British video for The Sunday Times which merged visuals from iconic artworks, TV shows and films into one seamless sequence.
Air New Zealand (ever creative in their approach to safety videos) collaborated with Sports Illustrated swimwear models on location in the Cook Islands, to bring a quirky style to engage frequent flyers.
Brilliantly conceived and executed videos are being produced every day, around the world. The ubiquity of handheld devices has been a revolution for video, which can be viewed in high definition, in your hand, on demand.
Occasionally a video impresses so much that it ‘goes viral’ and is shared relentlessly. ‘Old Spice Man’ was one such example. A single spot initiated a long campaign. The awareness and revitalisation which that well-established brand attained was extraordinary, and exceptionally cost-effective.
The ‘cut-through’ that can be achieved for your brand with a novel approach to presenting your products and services, is immense.
