What is Social Video Marketing? by Best Digital Marketing Agency, Absolute Digital
Updated: Oct 20, 2020
Social Video Marketing is the use of videos to engage your viewers using online social media platforms. In recent years, it has gained popularity with more and more entrepreneurs and businesses using video marketing on social media platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. These companies have leveraged on the increased the amount of time we spent online to advertise where their target audience (you) is at.
If you're an avid social media user, I'm sure you'll find some of these video ads very familiar...

Appear often enough and these ads can sometimes be quite annoying... However, this is a very clever digital marketing strategy, and let me explain why:
Digital marketing is all about presence. The more attention you can capture, the higher the chances of converting views into leads, and eventually sales. Great marketers know this so they would pay a premium for your attention. The same way traditional marketers pay higher rents for retail spaces in the centre of Orchard Road for human traffic, digital marketers will also pay a premium for the right target audience to see their ads.
The reason why these ads keep popping up on your screen is because you've engaged (liked, commented, or watched past a certain point) with these ads before. The social media algorithm (Facebook or YouTube) learns that you fit their targeted demographics, and marks you as a potential client because you've engaged with these ads before. Soon, a swarm of these types of videos will appear from their competitors as well. This is called remarketing.
As you would already know by now, one of the key benefits of using digital marketing in 2020 is the ability to target the right audience. This translates to lower ad budget (you don't have to spend money to advertise in front of non-potential customers) and increased ROI (those that have seen your ads have a higher chance of becoming your customers because they fit the demographics, of consumer behaviour pattern).
