Q0: How does Video Marketing fit in your marketing strategy?
“It has to be part of a brands marketing mix. Since the days of TVCs, video has been the most powerful storytelling format. Apart from that, I just twisted the adage ‘Picture is worth 1000 words, videos are worth 1000 pictures’ “. @MalharBarai
“Videos are more preferred against long hand typed posts being time saving for everyone to go through.” @Nishant26121990
Q1: Which tools do you prefer for Video Marketing?
“Youtube and Stories on all platforms. I think live stories as a video is now more powerful and engaging.” @Pandya_Khushbu
“Depends on objective, for live – stats favor Facebook followed by Periscope. Instagram is giving some competition too!” @MalharBarai
“Now a days live stories or live video streaming is on pick. So instead of putting pre-recorded video, live video is much more effective.” @DhruvalkMehta
Q2: Have live videos changed video marketing landscape?
“Yes, it puts the user/audience in the driving seat to decide how things run in cases + because it’s LIVE anything can happen.” @osx_ail
“Of course yes and you can say this is the next big thing in the marketing” @DhruvalkMehta
Q3: Youtube Vs. Vimeo- What’s your take?
“YouTube definitely. Vimeo has had its run, personally i think it’s clunky & doesn’t keep up with the time. Also YouTube = SEO” @osx_ail
“Never a big fan of Vimeo, but I guess it works for few brands. So until you have a audience there, why not!” @MalharBarai
“Well YouTube is a winner” @join2manish
“YouTube anyday” @apsster
Q4: Do Videos need SEO?
“No. SEO is more relevant to descriptions and keywords” @SaurabhTurakhia
“100% but it has to be via a platform that recognises it. Facebook for e.g even lets you target your video to subcultures within” @osx_ail
“Like every content, you want your brand to be on top. So optimization is must, starting from Title to Description” @MalharBarai
Q5: Recorded Video Vs. Live Video- How to leverage each?
“Live videos are trending mainly thanks to FB. They spent millions of dollars just to make influencers put out live videos!” @digikhiladi
“Depends on what’s your objective? Budget? What’s the bigger picture? Both are effective, Simon Sinek’s would say: Start With Why?” @SocialNoel
“Strategy – seen brands use pre-recordings to entice users for their LIVE update, works well for giveaways, new products etc” @osx_ail
“If u have a higher budget prefer Recorded video as u get a chance to edit” @Nishant26121990
Q6: What does future hold for Video Marketing?
At the F8 Zuckerberg revealed his plans to harness the Power of Augmented Reality with Camera Effects Platform. The future is crazy” @SocialNoel
“Future of video marketing is pretty obvious. Video marketing = Content Marketing, especially once SEO becomes voice based!!”@digikhiladi
