First off you need to set some goals for your project. Here are some to consider:
- TO ATTRACT A LARGE NUMBER OF UNIQUE VIEWERS
Gaining traffic is great, but do you seek raw numbers or are you attempting to reach key members of a target market?
- TO REACH THE RIGHT TARGET MARKET
Advanced video analytic tools let you check viewers by age, gender or location, so you should be able to tell if your video is reaching the right group of people.
- TO CREATE LOYALTY
Measuring loyalty is difficult, one way may be to track those who regularly watch and share your content.
- TO BOOST ENGAGEMENT
When a viewer uses a ‘Like’ button they’ve begun to interact with you and your content. If they also comment on your content, you can begin a relationship.
- BUILD SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCE
If you create a clip people share and enjoy then your social media presence should grow, increasing the reach of your business or brand.
- GENERATE SALES OR SITE VISITS
If you want to generate sales it helps to include your company/product URL within the clip. Don’t forget to update your feedback form to include video content.
- ATTRACT SUBSCRIBERS
The number of people who sign-up to your email lists is a good way to track how relevant your video is to your audience.
