5 Effective Video Marketing Campaigns To Beat In 2019

26 February 2019

5 mins read

To appeal to the new generation of consumers, brands have to tirelessly look for innovative ideas to entice them. But in the face of growing competition, how do you establish an identity for yourself in the sea of competitors? It seems the answer lies within video marketing.

With more than 50% of consumers preferring video content, a video marketing campaign has become the best selling tool and platform. If you hook your consumers within the first 5 seconds, you will get them to learn of your campaign.

To help brands create an effective video marketing campaign, here are 5 successful examples that are worth emulating:

World’s Toughest Job” – American Greetings’ Cardstore

How does it feel to work long hours, standing for most of the time but not get paid? Inarguably, mothers are the embodiment of the “job description” provided.

“World’s Toughest Job” was produced to drive customers to create their own greeting cards with American Greetings’ Cardstore. With this tactical approach of expressing gratitude and awe, it was a great way of hooking in viewers by tugging at their heartstrings.

Released just a few days before Mother’s Day, it built on their customer base, increased sales and made an immediate impact. By using a video, it guided consumers through a brand’s online sales funnel. Sales actually increased to 20% within that year and they clinched the best video award at the Effie’s.

Learning point: Build on timeliness and know your unique selling point (USP) so that it generates desired results. By connecting consumers with their USP, they pushed a message that drives traffic to their services.

Creating a campaign with a smart marketing strategy is key in this digital era.

You Are More Beautiful Than You Think” – Dove

Encouraging women to be kinder with their own appearance, Dove took on a thought-evoking yet emotional approach to get their message across.

The ad revolved around a forensic artist who drew portraits of women solely via verbal descriptions by the women themselves and description by someone whom they just met.

With the increasing expectations on unattainable beauty standards, Dove took a perceptive approach to tell girls to be kinder to themselves.  By comparing how others view them as compared to how individuals viewed themselves, they relayed the message effectively.

It was uploaded in 25 different languages and viewed in more than 110 countries, increasing its shareability of the content. The pace of sharing proved to be phenomenal when it attracted an incredible 3.17 million shares.

Learning point: Know your consumers, tap on notable trends and utilise a key message that has the consumers at the heart of it. By focusing on their consumers, Dove launched another campaign that resonated with their target audience.

Like A Girl – Always

Launched in 2014, the video has made an impact on the world and how it viewed the phrase “Like A Girl”. Always embarked on a mission to tackle social issues girls face during puberty and took it up a notch to appeal to the younger audience.

The main purpose of the video was for people to share and participate. Building on the idea of the term ‘Like A Girl’ as a derogatory term, Always took on the challenge of changing people’s perceptions.

The Youtube video consists of engaging youths and discussing their views on what ‘Like A Girl’ meant to them. Garnering over 66 million views, they became a brand firm in their standing of changing norms set by society today.

Learning point: Look for something that unites us, rather than divides us. By adopting a familiar phrase we use daily, Always connected with the masses and created a wave of social change.

My Spicy Love – McDonald’s Malaysia

McDonald’s had so much success with this particular campaign that they actually ran out of the new burgers.

Just like how the Korean Wave has taken the world by storm, McDonald’s Malaysia took the country by a storm with its Spicy Korean Burger in 2017. Using the creative approach of imitating a Korean drama, the video showed a couple seemingly leaving each other. The video showed the dramatic separation was actually for a water break as the burger was too spicy.

The fast-food brand strategically picked two of the most iconic approaches to represent the burger – K-Dramas and spicy food. Within 2 days of release, the Spicy Korean Burger went out of stock.

Learning point: Combine wit with current trends to market your products or services. Wit is always effective when utilised well, and McDonald’s Malaysia did in this case. If you are struggling to come up with a witty and strategic campaign, approach creative experts to identify and help your brand.

A Social Experiment on Mental Health Stigma – Beyond The Label

“Mental health illness does not discriminate, so why should we?”

You may have seen this video across many platforms – from cinema ads to poster ads around public transport in Singapore. ‘Beyond The Label’ was the talk of the town for a period of time, having garnered over 520,000 views on Youtube and 899,000 views on Facebook alone.

The video starts off in an interview setting with people being asked on their views of mental illness. The catch? Nicole and Nicholas, who have once been diagnosed with clinical depression, were the ones engaging them. Claimed as a “no-filter” interview, the feedback received weren’t comforting.

In the end, interviewees read a letter by Nicole and Nicholas after beating the illness. Tears were shed and the message was delivered – view people as individuals, not labels; to see sufferers of mental illness as a person, instead of letting the label define them of their capabilities.

Beyond The Label took it a step further and replied to comments on Facebook either comforting the loss of a beloved or offering helplines when individuals sought for help. Unquestionably, the essence of their campaign effectively stood out and the awareness raised with the high number of shares and discussion on social media.

Learning Point: Utilising real-life examples instead of actors to convey the message. With the amount of advertising content out there, real-life cases connect well with audiences.

Ending Note

Instead of marketing a product or service directly, these videos stray far away from being an advertisement. So why does video marketing work wonders? Simply because they don’t feel like a marketing tactic.

Create videos to let people know of struggles and challenges that they can resonate with. Instead of hard-selling an item, brands and agencies should aim for results like an increase in sales or awareness on a topic of interest. Engage a creative agency to tactfully craft out a strategy for your brand.

How To Choose A Digital Marketing Agency

As you begin your marketing planning for the upcoming year, you might look into finding a digital marketing agency to help you and boost your brand and numbers.

Given the saturation of the digital marketing industry, it is not difficult to find a digital marketing agency nowadays. The challenge is finding the right agency to do it.

With the abundance of choices, it may seem difficult to narrow it down to one and that’s understandable. In the spirit of giving during this festive season, here are 3 ways to choose the right digital marketing agency for your business:

Google Chrome Is Blocking Ads! Will Your Ads Be Affected?

Attention to all digital marketing agencies and departments: If you are not putting in the effort for your advertisement content creation, Google Chrome is about to block your ads with an in-built adblocker.

Google has looked into this ad-blocking feature since 2017 in an attempt to improve the digital marketing industry. Now, they are expecting to launch this new in-built function worldwide by July.

Google Chrome is the most widely used Internet browser at 62.28%, which is more than half of the online activity. Safari, the second most used browser is only at a mere 14.69%. Saying that this change will impact digital marketing is putting it lightly.

Oh Snap! You Can Play Games on Snapchat Now?!

When we talk about talking selfies and stories on our socials, which side are you on? Instagram, Facebook or… Snapchat? When Facebook attempted to buy Snapchat recently, they were rejected despite a whopping bid of $3 billion. In response, Facebook leveraged on their acquisition of Instagram to compete against Snapchat, by launching Instagram stories or what’s widely known at Instastories.

Talk about life’s regrets.

With the purchase, Instagram’s platform soared in terms of the number of users and ads, while Snapchat struggled to keep up. Facebook also launched Facebook Stories to add options for the avid social media users. From there, Snapchat started to look more and more like an Instagram copy instead of the other way around, as they struggled to innovate to pull ahead of its ‘successor’.

Until now.

Snapchat recently launched a gaming platform, similar to WeChat, in an attempt to improve user engagement and move ahead of their rival. They released a series of Snapchat filter games and Augmented Reality (AR) games that users can play on the platform.

Most notably, the AR Tennis game against Serena Williams is a clear sign that Snapchat’s advanced AR technology is going to become their selling point.

Snapchat games provide an additional tool for businesses to adapt. (YAY!) That is always welcomed for creative people (*wink wink*) to adapt for marketing.

Does Snapchat still matter?

Well, it really depends.

Snapchat numbers have risen steadily over the past year, with more and more youths adopting the platform. We’ve to admit, they’ve got really nice filters. Heh. This means any strategy or business targeting youths have to take Snapchat into serious consideration.

Incorporating gaming has given other platforms (aka Facebook) a boost before and it should do the same for Snapchat.

What can businesses do with this information?

Consider playing around with Snapchat’s functions and ads viewing if you are unfamiliar with the platform. Businesses can also start looking into adapting filters and AR games to help their own cause.

Do keep the demographics of Snapchat in mind while developing and utilising them and tie in to your branding. It will be a waste of marketing dollars otherwise.

If you want to utilise them, and you are having trouble with incorporating into your brand, consult an agency to help you.
