Before you can connect with your audience, your professional video marketing team must understand their audience. Who are they? What platforms are they using? What types of content are they searching for? It is equally as important for your business to understand what they are trying to accomplish within their audience, are you focused on increasing followers and views or are you targeting a specific group? If you are a corporate video production company doing B2B marketing you may choose to use more traditional platforms and styles like email marketing and SEO. If you are selling a product or service to millennials you would most likely choose a more trendy and current style and use social platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat rather than email.
