Creating a video for each stage of the buyer’s journey

Just like the rest of your marketing & sales collateral, using the buyer’s journey as your guide is a great approach to creating video. The buyer’s journey is all about figuring out what information your prospects need, and when they need it. Prospects want different things at each stage in their buyer’s journey:

Awareness – prospects are defining their need, and searching for basic information

Consideration – they’re conducting in-depth research, and building a wide and deep pool of information

Decision – now they’re ready to refine the information, and make a short list of potential vendors

So how do these stages translate into video? Want to take a closer look at this checklist?

Getting started with video marketing is
not that difficult, says online expert Tom Buyens. You just need to consider your video marketing objectives, and break it down by stage in the buyer’s journey. “To start, consider adding one video per stage,” he suggests. 

So for a new product, for example, you might create three videos:

  • Awareness Make a short promotional video, no more than 30 seconds, suitable for sharing on social media, and your web pages, announcing your upcoming launch
  • Consideration Make a presentation video from a presentation that’s already planned, or host a webinar
  • Decision Find an early user of your product, and create a customer testimonial video, post on YouTube and your web pages

According to research conducted by HubSpot, 52% of professional marketers believe video delivers the best return on marketing investment, compared to all other marketing tools. For most marketers, faced with shrinking budgets and the need to do more, with less, this is an important factor. Tom Buyens agrees. “Video offers the best way to create magic about your product and brand, and build trust,” he says. “It’s easier than you think to take advantage of video marketing opportunities.

How cultural differences can impact NPS results, and what to do about it

How cultural differences can impact NPS results, and what to do about it If your company operates across different countries and cultures, you know that customers behave differently based on where they’re located, and what languages they speak. If your organization uses the Net Promoter Score (NPS) metric to gauge customer satisfaction and country-specific performance, you may notice significant regional variances in your data.
