How to Create Storied Videos to Capture Your Audience | Backpack Filmmaker | Scoop.it

When it comes to marketing strategy, videos are powerful. How powerful? On Facebook, for example, videos are shared 12 times more than non-video posts. And let’s not forget YouTube, the second largest search engine in the world (after Google, of course). The ability of videos to increase user engagement is unsurpassed.


According to YouTube’s statistics page, they get over 800 million unique visitors each month, users view more than 4 billion hours of video each month and upload 72 hours of video every minute. That’s a lot of potential for your video....

Remember,

“A brand is a story that is always being told.”


Dr. Pamela Rutledge's curator insight, August 15, 2015 11:12 AM

Nice example of how visual "packaging" makes something you probably already know fun and interesting. Good thing, too. Storytelling is a critical skill because it is how the brain understands and stores information. And maybe each variation of presentation using image or language lets you hear it a little differently each time. Lurking psychological principles: repetition increases learning; frequency increases liking and personal relevance or salience; image engages instinctive, faster and more emotional processing than text alone.

Brad Tollefson's insight:

Some applicable steps for any onboarding/welcome process

Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 19, 2014 8:31 PM

This article comes from the land of software adoption -- you know -- buying a program or app and then learning how to use it.


Some companies really suck at these instructions or "onboarding" as they say in the tech world. Some are great at it. I'm sure we've all wanted to tear our hair out in frustration when this process does not go well. Yeah, like I'm supposed to read what's in software genius' head so I can use the !$%*&#! product.


So imagine my delight when reading this article about how to use stories to understand what the user (that's me) needs to know and do for a successful software experience. 


But wait! I realized that this post applies to almost ANY business and its products. Hooray -- we can all use the tips, advice, and insights presented here.


I only have one part to nit-pick about -- the section on how to evoke stories from customers. The method they suggest will only get you thoughts and opinions -- NOT STORIES. So use solid story prompts to get the work done: "Tell me about the time when..." "Tell me what happened when..." "Tell me about the time you were most frustrated..." "Tell me about the experience that led you to..."


I do agree when the author says to keep digging into the stories to find rock bottom motivations and causes that led a customer to your product.


If you need good reasons and practical steps to dig into your customer's experience to grow your business, then read this. 


And many thanks to colleague Debra Askanase @askdebra for recommending this article to me. Good find Debra!
