5 Ways To Come Up With Great Video Ideas
Video is one of the best ways to share your message with your community and grow your business. Videos are sharable, engaging and fun. They let you create a memorable connection with your audience and can lead to better conversions. That said, it takes some work to come up with great video ideas. Here are five ways to make sure your media pipeline is always filled with great educational videos.
Ask Your Community
Talk to your customers, clients, partners, and team about what problems you can help them solve, or what’s one big win you can help them achieve?
These one to one and one to many way of communication with your community will inform new ideas for videos. Think of it like market or customer research.
Look At Your Data
Meet with your marketing team and look at your analytics to gain insights on what keywords, titles, thumbnails, and styles are performing best with your audience and double down on what’s working.
And then connect these ideas back to your company, products, services, and most importantly your community.
Think and act like a content marketing guru.
Your ability to understand all the nuances and strategies of Google and search rankings will help inform how to plan video topics and ideas that deliver on what members of your audience are actually searching for.
This helps you optimize for search ranking but don’t let this fully trump your focus on community. Yes, optimize for keywords, engagement, click-throughs, and conversations but ensure your messaging and ideas speak to members of your community on a human level, not just a tactical or strategic level.
And that’s what the next source of ideation speaks to.
