Before posting – analyze your animated video
Most of the answers to the question “Where my video needs to be to work effectively” are usually hidden in the video itself. For example, you have created a “Question and Answer” video about your software. Then think of all the places where your customer might have questions regarding your software. That’s where your video would be really useful. It could be your landing page, where he or she gets when sees your ads on the social network, or an e-mail with your company’s proposal of service. Find possible situations when your potential client would like to save his time and get the answers without calling or writing back.
Answer the following questions to find specific places where your video should be placed:
- What problems does your video solve?
- At which stages of communicating with your product or service, a customer might have these problems?
- What is your video`s CTA (call to action) part about? Does it fit your video`s placement?
