Video Metrics for a Passive Audience
Consider, for example, counting views instead of clicks to gauge your success. Particularly viewers that watch the whole video. The luxury audience is also more likely to respond to an anonymous poll than a comment chain if you want to ask a question.
For vote-counting events, use ‘likes’ instead of shares so that interacting with your brand doesn’t require a new post in the viewer’s name.
And, of course, make videos that are a delight to watch. Your goal is to draw your viewers in, take them on a relaxing ride, and deposit them comfortably at the end of the video. The more your content welcomes a passive audience, the more of your audience you will connect with.
3. Edit for Mobile Optimized Resolutions
One of the biggest challenges of creating great marketing videos is screen resolution. In today’s technology environment, your viewer’s screen could be anywhere between an enormous monitor and a tiny phone. Therefore, it’s difficult to know how much detail and at what resolution to shoot your video.
Your Video Must Play Well On
- • Big-Screen TVs
- • Working Monitors
- • Large and Small Tablets
- • Phone Screens
Always start with the highest possible resolution, ensuring that your video looks crisp even at a large size. However, you also need to test your video’s appearance on every possible phone and tablet screen size. You may even consider slight edits and touch-ups to make the video more enjoyable at smaller resolutions.
4. Create a Cinematic Message
The human mind is great at identifying patterns. Most people can immediately recognize if a video is meant to tell a story or advertise a product, and we tend to tune out the advertisements. If you want to get past those mental filters, you’ll need to think outside the box. Get creative with your video formats and the way you convey your messages.
Try to change the way you film so that your audience re-focuses on the video to determine the purpose. This will give their full attention to your content, pulling them into the experience you want to convey. The more cinematic your luxury marketing video is, the better. Give people a mini-film instead of a quick ad.
Tell them a story.
5. Work with Influencers
Luxury brands have traditionally relied on reputation and word-of-mouth to spread brand awareness. But in today’s digital marketing environment, that spread just isn’t fast enough.
In order to recreate the recommendation strategy, you may want to work with a luxury brand social media influencers.
Influencers can help you spread the word about your brand and bring you to the attention of your target audience through their own popularity. However, it’s important to choose who you work with carefully. There is a big difference between a one-time cross-promotion and a contracted brand representative. Be sure to work with someone who aptly represents the values and experience of your brand and who is willing to continue upholding those values.
6. Deliver Content at the Right Times
Finally, don’t forget that once you target a potential customer, you have every reason to tailor their experience. Don’t just use shot-gun advertising to show them your marketing content in a random order. Instead, make use of the sequential advertising method. Sequential advertising allows you to build an experience for your audience members, taking them on a journey from one content piece to the next.
This can help you to tell your audience a story or take them on an experiential journey. You can use the same images from your videos in connected banner ads, and sequence several videos in a row. Use this method to guide leads down the conversion funnel and delight them with innovative marketing stories.
Marketing for a luxury brand means taking a different approach. Use the power of video experiences, influencers, and sequential content to raise brand awareness and take your target audience on a journey.
