In 2010, a Microsoft study published their findings on the shrinking attention span of humans. The results were shocking. Two decades before, the average attention span was approximately 12 seconds; now, researchers estimate our attention spans run around 8 seconds in longevity– about the same as a goldfish. What does this mean for marketing and content creation? Compelling, creative, short, and to-the-point content is essential for businesses to communicate their message and engage their audience.

Any company looking to grow and expand should pay attention to video to develop and grow in our current market. According to The Cisco Video Networking Index, the forecast for views and video traffic will increase dramatically, making up approximately 82% of internet traffic by the end of this year. If these predictions come to fruition, it will increase 75% from 2017.

Why create video content?

Video is a compelling medium, and it can be used to tell the story of a business in a way that traditional print or online ads simply cannot. Creating video content highlights a business or brand’s commitment to giving back to the community, advertising their services, and explaining who they are and what they offer. For example, a company can demonstrate that they are committed to making a positive difference in the lives of those they serve in a short, thoughtful video posted on social media or a website.

Epic Productions was founded 19 years ago, offering video production services to businesses for each unique need. Whether you are interested in a corporate video highlighting your values, an animated explainer video for social media, short-form videos for ads, or longer videos for a website or marketing, we provide full-service options. In this article, we will briefly go over 3 of our best tips for attracting new clients with video production.

Use high-quality equipment

High-quality equipment isn’t just an investment, and it is a critical piece to creating engaging videos for your brand. Which video equipment is worth the investment? It all depends on your budget and goal if you are purchasing equipment for your business. The key is to purchase professional tools and quality lenses

Here are some suggestions:

Canon C300 Mark III.
Canon CN-E 85MM.
Canon C70
DJI Ronin RS3 Pro

The type of camera you use is just one aspect of the equipment involved in video production – other factors such as lighting and audio equipment are also essential to consider. If you are shooting outdoors or want to dabble in social media videos, investing in external accessories like tripods can help ensure that your video is steady and clear.

If you are like most companies and prefer to outsource video production to a qualified company, Epic Production services small and large companies in Arizona to produce high-quality videos for all of your marketing goals and initiatives. Epic Productions offers full-service production and editing services, creative marketing strategies, and digital marketing support to help attract and maintain an engaged audience.

2. Record a range of content

There are plenty of categories to consider when recording a range of content. Not only is a company going to consider their needs, but also the needs and preferences of their audience. We have six major categories to consider when producing a great video or series of videos. Here are our suggestions:

Corporate video production

The goal of a corporate video is fluid and spans a wide range of topics. Corporate videos tell a compelling story about the company showcasing your best features, assets, and message to the community. Epic produces corporate video content pieces, including video trends, animation explainers, 360-degree and customer journey videos, and so much more.

Arizona companies hire Epic to record customer testimonials record behind the scenes content at an office or event. We create engaging employee training videos and entice customers with trending video techniques to showcase your products in a captivating and compelling way.

See some of our corporate video work here.

Animation videos

Who doesn’t love a great animation video? Some popular animation videos include whiteboard explainers, product tutorials, and storytelling pieces explaining corporate values or product marketing. Epic holds space in animation production for the state of Arizona as a key leader in producing 2D and 3D animation chops used on social media, websites, tutorials, and training decks.

The Epic team hosts an in-house art department using cutting-edge technology and advanced programs to create animations that get to the point of your core message while also crafting imagery that engages an audience. Capture your future customers and keep their attention on you with an animated video that sets your company apart from the rest.

Browse our animated video portfolio here.

Product Demo

What product are you selling? Is your brand showcasing a product or service worthy of a high-quality video? A product demo video is one of the most effective and popular marketing techniques in today’s market. 64% of viewers are more likely to purchase a product or service after watching a product demo video than any other forum. That statistic is only growing with the purchasing power of Gen Z and Millennial shoppers who consume video content.

While written manuals have their place, creative strategies using video demonstrations by actual customers are a proven effective way to market and advertise a product or service. Look on social media and see how-to videos with millions of views and ads centered around real customers using authentic products in everyday life. These videos can be viewed and posted over and over again.

Commercial video production

Commercials have dominated the market on television for decades, and hold an important space even today. Commercials condense information in 30 seconds to 1 minute in a way that teaches and entertains an audience. Digital media like YouTube provide opportunities for video marketing to soar in a short period. At Epic, we know broadcast commercials and appreciate and deliver results.

Our team understands that creating a video is only the first step, and we offer digital marketing services to guide when and where a commercial should be placed to optimize viewership. This marriage of both video production and digital strategy is unique. Let us walk you through the process!

Digital marketing video production

Have you ever seen a short commercial on YouTube that captures your attention long past the “skip advertisement” prompt? Us, too. Digital marketing and video production go hand in hand, and it is critical to work with a company like Epic Productions, which understands optimizing both. A digital marketing strategy in video production that works includes SEO/SEM optimization, social media advertising, video display, and YouTube advertising, website design and development, and online reputation management.

Create more ROI and quality leads with a strategy that leaves you with video content and a large pool of potential customers.

Videos for website design

We can’t talk about a business without covering websites. A website is a hub for customers to learn about you, your company, and your services. Blogs and webpages are great for SEO, but with the rise of short attention spans in the digital space, concise and to-the-point video content on your website is crucial. Display tutorials about your company and display some of the best aspects of your business with an all inclusive video in two minutes or less. Sweeping wide-angle shots, up-close interviews with customers or employees, and product showcases are critical components to a brand’s success.

3. Know your audience

Video content advertised to the right audience will create an ROI over and over. Before making a video for your social media platform or website, ask yourself the following:
Who are you targeting?
What do they need or desire?
What problem will you help your audience solve?
What level of experience or expertise does the audience have?
What are their goals?
How can you help them solve their problem(s)?
What is your audience’s skill level?
What topics are you covering?

It might seem overwhelming to consider so many aspects of a marketing strategy, especially if you are focused on managing other parts of your business. The good news is, Epic has you covered. Our in-house video production team, coupled with our expert digital marketers, will form a plan that generates results for your business goals.

Let’s work together!

Marketing today is currently being driven by content. Every brand that you know and see is throwing content your way. From product content, service product, to company stories, many businesses utilize content for their social media campaigns. As time progresses, content driven marketing is set to get more pronounced.  

Video is the medium that is undoubtedly dominating the social media marketing content. Wherever you look on the online sphere, you will find video content. Creating, distributing, and planning video content can single handedly help businesses scale and prosper to the next level.  

However, if you want to truly leverage the capabilities of video content, you have to learn how to properly create and distribute the content. Without a good creation and distribution strategy, you will fail to make conversions and struggle to put as many eyeballs as possible within the given target audience.  

Why make Video a Part of your Social Media Marketing Strategy? 

Video is highly effective, and many stats and figures highlight their efficacy. 90% of users have gone on to claim that seeing a video about a product is most helpful when they trying to decide over their purchase. This means that video can singlehandedly be the convincing factor you need to convert visitors into sales.  

Another statistic claims four times as many users prefer watching a product review video over reading about the product, when they are trying to purchase it. Therefore, if you are just presenting text-driven information about your product or service, then you are missing out on the preferred way of end-users.  

According to 70% of businesses to business marketers, video content is the most impactful and effective solution when creating conversions. For a marketer, conversion is an integral metric, as they are the first step of turning prospects in to customers. Thus, video has proven to drive these conversions.  

96% of business to business companies utilize video in their marketing campaigns. If you are part of that 4%, this means that you are drastically behind your competition. There is no other medium within marketing that lays claim to this type of effectiveness.


How to start the Process?  

Let us assume that there is a sound strategy in place that you can execute against. If that is the case, it starts like any other process, and that is creation. There are different video technologies that you can use to create modern video. Since 2014, video resolutions and storage requirements have increased drastically.  The US consumer today views more video content that ever before. In the coming future, video content will make up majority of the internet traffic. Therefore, there is no denying about video content and its increasing relevancy.  


Key Technologies  

There are many different technologies pertaining to video. These include VR videos, HDR videos, 360 degree videos and more. The most used video technology today include 4K videos, color grading and drone shots.  

4K Videos  

4K video is one that is four times the quality of regular HD video. In the professional video marketplace, 4K videos are becoming the standard. 4K video resolution is 4 times the size of normal HD resolution video that is 1920X1080.  

You can even capture 4K videos at slightly higher resolutions. Nonetheless, higher resolution videos do not have to do with shooter wider or narrow videos. Instead, it is about providing users with quality in the same frame which looks a lot better.   

Cost-saving Benefits 

Shooting with 4k allows for production offer cost-saving benefits as well.  You can simultaneously capture multiple video angles. This means that you can set up and capture a wide shot, and in post production, you can actually zoom in on the footage and create a close up or a medium shot.  

Traditionally with an HD video, you need to shoot with multiple different cameras to shoot different angles. Or, you would also have to spend multiple times to reset the camera and align multiple shots with different angles. Zooming in on HD videos compromises on the quality, while 4K videos stay stable even after zooming in.  

You can also still frame videos and repurpose them as photographs. These pictures can be extremely helpful in optimizing your marketing content. Anywhere you put videos, you will also benefit from putting pictures. Thus, instead of having to capture them separately, you can also capture them through 4K videos.  

Another cost saving benefit takes shape in the form of unlimited post-production flexibility. This means that you can create sliding or moving movements when producing the content. This is due to the wide angles that you can capture with the 4K camera.  


Color Grading 

Color grading is the method of getting optimal image quality out of footage. In the professional video industry, color grading has become a standard. It allows you to color grade your content in ways that give it more character and mood.  

With color grading, you can also achieve a much better final product image that helps make a huge difference. Overall, color graded forage helps make images come alive, and helps put out a professional impression for your company when social media marketing.  

DRONE VIDEO

A drone video involves flying professional drones that capture 4K videos at high altitudes. This helps you capture dynamic shots that have movement and life. Shooting with a drone also helps you add versatility to your footage and social media marketing campaign.  

It is not only meant for large aerial views, but also for showcasing numerous amounts of perspectives of your business. It can help provide customers with an aerial shot of your business vicinity, production unit, and more.

With so much changing in the world, day by day and even minute by minute, sticking to the marketing plan you created for 2020 might seem far-fetched. You’re not alone and in fact, following that marketing strategy you created by the book probably isn’t the best approach. If there is anything we’ve learned during the coronavirus pandemic, it’s that things change rapidly. That being said, so must our marketing strategies.

As a full-service video production and digital marketing agency, we have seen first hand the affects that COVID has caused many industries. More specifically, we have seen how it has affected their online advertising budgets and marketing plans. Creating a marketing strategy post COVID-19 needs a new and innovative approach. An approach that is customer-focused and backed by real-time data and research. Developing a marketing strategy to help build trust and confidence around your brand is essential and more importantly, this strategy needs a foward-thinking and proactive perspective. Here’s a few things to consider when creating or re-strategizing your business marketing plan.

How To Create a Marketing Strategy Post COVID-19

1. Better Analyze Customer Behavior and Trends

Customer behaviors are changing and will continue to change for years to come as we deal with the repercussions of COVID. With more people working from home or who experienced working from home during the stay-at-home orders across the world, it’s safe to say consumer buying patterns have altered. And because of this, we have a bright and shiny opportunity right in front of us to take advantage of.

Now more than ever we must anticipate consumer needs. Brands need to be putting themselves ten steps ahead of the consumer and focus on creating more meaningful interactions. Real-time analytics and data should be the number one tool in your toolbox. Developing strategies based on this data will create more personalized interactions which, in turn, will allow your customers to feel like they are heard and that your brand provides relevant content.

Plain and simple, creating a marketing strategy post COVID-19 needs special attention on customer behavior, trends, and needs. Focus on building relationships and interactions with an individual of your audience, not the audience as a whole.

2. Implement a Proactive Approach

Staying ahead of the curve is your best weapon. Knowing your market and consumer needs is the best way to meet market demands and win in your industry. Implementing a proactive approach is more than just analyzing consumer behaviors, it’s getting your team on board too. Empower your employees to adopt a proactive mindset and encourage them to think outside of the box.

Supporting and empowering your staff and team will encourage them to constantly be on the lookout for new and innovative strategies. This day in age, especially post COVID, brands who are evolving, adapting, being innovative, and have compassion for their customers will succeed.

So, company wide, adopt a proactive approach to understand what changes are happening and how they are happening. In order to meet the needs of consumers, a foward-thinking and proactive plan is essential.

3. Create Engaging Video Content

With the rise of social media platforms like Instagram (specifically IGTV), TikTok, YouTube, and Facebook Watch, having video content is the new norm. In fact, everyday people watch one billion hours of videos on YouTube and generate billions of views. These numbers increase every day and more so when people are working from home and online all day.

When businesses ask us how to create a marketing strategy, our first answer is always developing a video production marketing plan that will engage and convert their audience. The data and numbers don’t lie, video content generates more engagement than any other type of content online. So, whether it’s creating a corporate video to help walk through your new initiatives as a company or an animated explainer video guiding customers through your services or products, professional video production must be at the top of your list.

There are so many types of videos to utilize when reworking your marketing strategy. The most important factor to remember though is that video content can be used for years. Not only that, video production content is great to have on your website, on your social media channels, and even in your email marketing campaigns.

4. Help Customers, Don’t Sell Them

Want to build trust with your customers? Provide useful and helpful content rather than just simply selling them on your services. When building a marketing strategy post COVID, it’s important to remember some consumers will be hesitant and skeptical. How they used to shop and purchase goods has completely shifted.

Brands need to focus on instilling confidence with their customers rather than showing off the next best product or service. This means putting the customer first and going above and beyond to help them. Being empathetic and prioritizing customer experience will help your brand stand out and help you generate a loyal customer base.

5. Focus on Digital Marketing

Analyzing, understanding, implementing, and reworking based on consumers’ new buying habits will help you create a digital marketing strategy that is effective. As people are shifting to online mediums, we must follow in the same direction. Virtually engaging with your audience is key to a successful marketing strategy, and more importantly, successful business.

From social media platforms, Google ads, YouTube ads, email marketing campaigns, and many more, it’s crucial now more than ever to reach customers where they are. Digital marketing trends change year over year but one thing that doesn’t change is the importance of having a strong online presence.

6. Simplify The Buying Process

Last but certainly not least, simplify the process for potential consumers! Times have changed and as mentioned earlier, so must our processes. Reconsider the buying funnel and focus on making the buying journey a little bit easier for your customers. Time is of the essence and that’s even more important when a potential consumer is researching your offerings. Having a poor website experience like slow loading times or making it impossible to find what they are looking for is one way to drive customers away, quick.

Take a good look at your business website, as well as your social media channels, and make the customer experience easier. By simplifying the way consumers find you, purchase from you, and even get in contact with you will ensure they become a repeat visitor.

With 4.5 billion active internet users in the world, how are you focusing on engaging new and existing customers? Growing your online presence and claiming stake in this digital era can seem daunting, yet, designing a game plan to reach your audience is key to your success. The most effective thing you can do for your business is implementing best practices to expand your reach.

In fact, increasing brand recognition should be at the top of your priority list.

Coming up with a strategy to increase your online presence that will serve you long term rather than hoping for short term results is what will set you apart from the competition. Maintaining visibility in your market is essential for long term profitability and continued investment.

That being said, let’s take a look at how to grow your online presence with these 4 tips!

how to grow your online presence

How To Grow Your Online Presence

Become An SEO Guru

Many business owners seem to skip over this tip which is your number one weapon for long term visibility. Claiming that online real estate and owning search terms relevant to your business will allow you to grow in search engine rankings over time.

SEO (search engine optimization) is more than just incorporating the relevant keywords into your website and content, it’s a skill that takes monitoring and analyzing results to understand what works best in your market.

Both on-site SEO and off-site SEO are critical when trying to grow your online presence. This is because both serve different purposes that are essential when expanding your online reach. On-site SEO is directly related to the content you have on your website and making sure it’s answering the questions your audience is looking for. Off-site SEO focuses more on the technical aspects including page speed, load time, and even incorporating backlinks.

Developing an SEO strategy casts a wider net for your website to be found online. Coming up with a game plan to write more blog content, optimize your current web pages, and build credibility will guarantee organic rankings and results down the line.

Start A Blog

Like mentioned in the first tip, writing blog content that is relevant to your industry and answers the questions your customers are looking for will help increase your online visibility. Creating a content strategy in order to broaden your reach will not only help your organic traffic, but you can provide value to potential customers.

Providing value and educational content is your best tool for building momentum and trust with your audience. Starting a blog that’s search engine optimized will allow Google and other search engines to crawl your web pages and serve your content to the right people.

Starting a blog doesn’t have to be overly complicated. Simply find the topics within your industry as well as the topics your business focuses on to provide insightful yet informational content!

Be Active On Social Media

Growing your online presence means being active where your customers are active and spend the majority of their time. Did you know there are over 3.8 billion social media users worldwide? With this number increasing daily, it’s a no brainer to create social media channels and be consistent on them.

If you don’t already have a social media presence, today is the day to start. Find the social media platforms that will best serve your business and customers. Less is more and consistency is key. There is no need for every social media outlet if you are not going to use it. Find the mediums that your audience is on and engaging to properly create a social media strategy.

Social media is one of the best ways to expand your online reach as you can integrate these channels into your website, stay relevant, and communicate with new and existing customers.

Produce Video Content

Speaking of social media outlets, let’s talk about YouTube. Creating video production content for YouTube, your website, and other video platforms is an ideal way to expand your digital reach.

As Google owns YouTube, your video content has the opportunity to show up in search results giving you another chance to generate organic traffic. Not only that, but according to WordStream, viewers retain 95% of a message when they watch it in a video compared to 10% when reading it in text. Video makes it easier to digest topics and is also more engaging to users.

Similar to writing blog content, produce videos that walk users through your services as well as talk about topics related to your industry.

Ready To Expand Your Reach?

No matter what industry or business you are in, focusing on growing visibility online is crucial if you want to stay in line with the competition. With over 4.4 million blogs being posted each day, the only way you will increase engagement and exposure is by developing a plan to be seen online.

As a full-service video production and digital marketing agency in Phoenix, our team of professionals is here to help grow your brand and increase leads. Let’s work together to design a marketing strategy that will work for your business.

If you’re aiming to raise brand recognition and awareness, promote your business, or explain how a new product or service works, adding a corporate video to your marketing mix is a must. But where do you start?

With so many different types of corporate videos, it might be a challenge to get the wheels turning on the best corporate video for your organization. However, it shouldn’t be at the bottom of your priority list. According to HubSpot, 72% of customers would rather learn about a product or service by way of video and by the year 2021, people will spend 100 minutes a day consuming video content.

That being said, the importance of corporate video production is prominent now more than ever before and with these corporate video content ideas, you can start reaping the benefits.

Let’s dive into a few creative ways to tell your story with corporate video production.

Resonate with Customers

Your marketing video content should do many things if you want it to be successful. It should provide value, guide users through the customer journey, and it should be easy to consume. However, it should also resonate with your customers. It’s critical to create corporate video content that coincides with what your customer is interested in, that way they are intrigued and driven to take action.

In fact, 48% of consumers want videos to reflect what they are interested in. This means building personal relationships and connections with your audience using video content that will meet their expectations.

Include Familiar Faces

How about using a familiar face in your next corporate video? This creative corporate video idea can be a bit costly, depending on who you’d like to work with, but is highly effective when trying to increase brand awareness and attract new customers. Using someone who is relevant and has broad appeal can easily influence consumer purchases.

Whether it’s a popular vlogger on YouTube, a local community business owner, or a retired pro football athlete like Kurt Warner, incorporating some familiarity that resonates with your target audience is guaranteed to keep your viewers engaged.

Create a Sizzle Reel

Sometimes, short and sweet yet professional and impactful is needed in your video marketing strategy. To prove it, 33% of viewers will stop watching a video after 30 seconds, 45% by one minute, and 60% by two minutes.

With this type of data, it’s important to create not just one overview video and call it a day. In order to maximize your video content, you can create shorter versions (like a sizzle reel) to increase view rates.

And side note… shorter videos are ideal for social media and YouTube advertising!

Add Some Humor

We couldn’t pass up an opportunity to share this hilarious corporate video idea produced for our friends over at SiteLock. This customer journey video perfectly outlines from A to Z what it’s like, as a consumer, to use their services. Of course, this video production was strategized and scripted with humor leading the way.

Making an emotional connection with your customers provides a lasting impression, especially if that connection is laughter. If your service or product is niche or confusing on paper, including funny elements in your corporate video can help people better understand your offerings, increase memorability and product recall over time.

Utilize Motion Graphics

What is more innovative and progressive than marketing your business with animation and motion graphics? Not only does including corporate motion graphics in your video content keep your audience’s attention, it helps introduce your services in a way thats easy to grasp.

This creative corporate video idea is perfect when you are looking to mix up your strategy because motion graphics has no limitations allowing you to craft a truly engaging narrative. This type of video is unique and the perfect tool to help boost sales. More importantly, it’s sharable! If you’re looking to make an impact on social media platforms, animation will do just the trick.

With these creative corporate video ideas, it’s clear to see how diverse and unique your corporate video can be. From promotional videos, internal training videos, and even explainer videos, we’ve helped develop educational and professional videos for all industries. With the world constantly evolving and becoming more digitally savvy, if you are still contemplating video production services for your business, now is the time to invest.

Did you know that 83% of marketers would increase their reliance on video as a strategy if there were no obstacles like time, resources, and budget? Companies nationwide know they need video content, but just don’t know where to start. Here at Epic, the top video production company in Phoenix and nationwide, we can assist in this process for you.

Looking for innovative video production ideas for the new year? Now is the time most organizations are reworking their marketing strategies and searching for creative video production ideas to help their businesses succeed! The online marketplace continues to grow, making it more important to stand out from the crowd.

The best marketing strategies of 2020 involve many different types of videos. It’s no longer enough to just have internal video ideas; diversify your marketing strategy with multiple video production ideas. Creating a video marketing strategy for your business can be a daunting task, but Epic Productions is here to help.

Let’s take a look into this year’s video marketing trends and how you can be ahead of the game. Here are Epic’s top 8 video production ideas!

1. Social Media Specific

Social media videos aren’t going anywhere. But, this goes beyond slapping video onto your social media strategy. There are more and more platforms gaining popularity, and therefore matching your video production ideas with the target audience is crucial.

Platforms such as Instagram stories, TikTok and Snapchat all call for different types of videos to reach different demographics. Tailoring your video content to be short, engaging and entertaining will make your social media content thrive.

2. Quality, Quantity and Customized

Quality matters just as much as quantity when it comes to video production. More and more companies are ramping up the amount of video production content in their business plans. Yet, to keep your brand strong, correct formatting and production quality are imperative.

Different types of video advertising each have their own pros and cons, but trying multiple will reach different audiences. When brainstorming your video production ideas, consider the formatting, sound, length and platform for each target market.

3. Video Branding

The most successful videos represent your company from start to finish. It’s becoming the standard to use consistent layouts and on-screen graphics. Adopting an omnichannel approach to your marketing strategy with consistent branding is key.

Match your website, logo and videos to represent your brand. This is also important for corporate video production. Corporate videos housed on the landing page of a website gives viewers their first impression. Make sure it’s a good one by using professional video production and motion graphics.

4. Searchable Video

Successful video marketing strategies are those that consider whether or not the videos are searchable. Just like optimizing your blogs or website, your videos also need a foundation in which search engines can find it. Plus, video is 50x more likely to get organic rating than plain text results!

All your videos in 2020 should start by deciding how they’ll be optimized. Decide a key phrase you’ll focus on that is commonly asked by your users. Utilize tags, transcribe, have accurate descriptions and (most importantly) captivating content.

5. Increase Viewer Interaction

Use videos to interact with your viewers! This means utilizing tools such as 360 degree video and VR. These video production ideas in particular will take your marketing strategy to the next level.

360 degree video gives viewers an experience, transporting them into your video. Give a tour of new housing developments, or take a look around a store front. The options are endless!

6. Online Shopping Videos

If your business has a product, video should be your best friend! Video production enhances the purchasing decision for buyers significantly. In fact, 80% of people state that product videos give them more confidence when purchasing a product.

Whether it’s showing off features, explaining a new product or highlight its uses, product videos are changing the online shopping game. Consumers are shopping more and more online, so make it a better experience for them with video.

7. Training Made Easy

Video production has more than just entertainment as a use. It’s become more common to use long tail video for training and education uses. On board employees with a captivating and easy to understand training video to make the process quicker and more effective. In fact, companies save up to 70% in costs when replacing instructor-based learning with video and eLearning.

Consider becoming a resource for your customers and create educational videos on the things you’re an expert on. You’ll quickly become a useful tool, plus, you’ll see an increase in subscribers.

8. Short and to the Point

On the flip side, there’s always a place for super short videos as well. The art of video ads isn’t an easy one, but when done well it can be the most effective way to advertise.

Create short video ads to be played across the Display Network, grabbing the attention of viewers in seconds. Target younger generations and increase brand awareness with these types of videos in this year’s marketing strategy.
