Strategies to Maximise Your Video Production Investment

Planning and Pre-production

Before you jump into any video production, you need to plan and prepare well. This shouldn’t come as a surprise—planning is the blueprint for achieving your goals. It’s essential for informed decision-making; without it, your actions lack direction.

This critical planning phase not only saves time, money, and resources but also preempts potential issues and delays, ensuring a smooth production process.

Start by understanding your vision and objectives. Ask yourself: What do you aim to accomplish? Who is your target audience? How will you measure success?

A well-defined vision steers the entire project, influencing the scope, budget, and timeline.

In line with the wise words of Joel Barker : “Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision is merely passing time. But vision with action can change the world.” A vision gives your efforts direction and purpose, ensuring that your video not only makes an impact but also achieves the results you’re aiming for.

Leveraging Multi-Platform Distribution

Multi-platform distribution is all about spreading your video content across various channels like social media, websites, email marketing, and more to maximize reach and impact.

However, you can’t just throw your content anywhere. To truly captivate your audience, you need to choose platforms that resonate with them, understand each platform’s unique strengths, and tailor your content to fit.

For instance, if you’re targeting Gen Z, dive into TikTok, Twitter, and Instagram, where short, snappy videos and eye-catching visuals perform well. On the other hand, for a professional audience, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Google Business are ideal for sharing in-depth industry insights and longer, informative posts.

By strategically leveraging multi-platform distribution, tailored to your audience, you can unlock benefits such as:

  • Extended reach: Multi-platform distribution can help you extend the reach and exposure of your video content to a wider and more diverse audience. By leveraging various platforms and channels, each with its unique user base, preferences, and behaviours, you can significantly enhance the discoverability, sharing, and endorsement of your content.
  • Platform-specific modifications:  Multi-platform distribution can help you maximise the engagement and impact of your video content by tailoring it to suit the unique requirements and dynamics of each platform and channel.You can modify your video content according to the optimal length, format, style, and tone for each platform and channel. You can also add captions, subtitles, hashtags, and calls to action to enhance your video content.

Content Repurposing Strategies

 Content repurposing is the process of transforming, adapting, and reusing your existing video content for different purposes, platforms, and audiences.

By doing so, you can enjoy reap the benefits of having multiple content pieces

You can segment your video production into shorter clips, GIFs, still images, or quotes for different uses. You can also use your video content as a source for other types of content, such as blog posts, podcasts, infographics, or ebooks.

This way, you can increase the value and lifespan of your video content, as well as reach a broader audience by catering to different content consumption preferences.

Incorporating SEO Best Practices

Search engine optimization (SEO) can increase the visibility and discoverability of your video content on search engines and social media platforms and drive more traffic and engagement to your website or channels.

 Research finds a staggering 90% of pages never receive organic traffic. To ensure your video content stands out, it’s essential to take proactive steps and implement effective SEO practices.

Some of the SEO best practices for video content are:

  • Conduct keyword research and optimise your video title, description, tags, and captions with relevant and specific keywords that match the intent and needs of your target audience.
  • Create an engaging and catchy thumbnail that captures the attention and interest of potential viewers and reflects the content and quality of your video.
  • Use schema markup and video sitemaps to provide additional information and context about your video to search engines, such as the duration, category, transcript, and thumbnail URL.
  • Embed your video on your website and optimise the page speed, layout, and user experience to encourage viewers to stay longer and watch more of your video content.

If SEO practices seem daunting or unfamiliar, fear not—it’s much simpler than it sounds! There’s a wealth of online tools available to guide you through the process. These tools are designed to simplify the complexities of SEO, empowering you to enhance the visibility and impact of your video content effortlessly.

 Here are some of the key performance indicators (KPIs) that you should track to measure the success of your video content:

  • Viewer engagement: Higher engagement typically indicates that your content is resonating well with viewers and encouraging them to interact.
  • Conversion rates: A higher conversion rate suggests that your video content is effectively driving viewers towards your goals.
  • Social shares: Indicates how widely your content is being distributed and endorsed by viewers, potentially increasing its reach and visibility.
