I have recently found my admiration for the comments section. For example, I came across an article on the “Advertising Age”. The article discussed how the Zen baby Zen ad campaign got it all right. While it did give a lot of insight into what practices make a video content click, I found myself drawn to the comments below the video itself. It was interesting to see people write that “this is the best commercial ever”(with multiple exclamation points)” or that if the viewer had a baby, she would buy this product. It got me thinking that in this ever-changing world of content, it must be hard to create that rule book which specifies how the content can click with its audience. But in the meantime, we can all look at examples and try our best to get it close to “right”.

It’s morning, and I have my cup of coffee in one hand and my mobile phone in the other. I am scrolling through my Facebook Page when I see someone share a video of Mo Farah winning the 10,000 m Gold, despite having a brief fall. The video has the background music very aptly selected with the song “I get knocked down, but I get up again”, and shows the victorious moment at the end. This is definitely going to be a part of my motivational videos to watch when I feel like I need some visual pep talk. I scroll down further and see an exercise video my friend, who is also a fitness instructor, has posted. I check to see if I can I repeat these exercises at home. This goes one for some time till I reach the bottom of my coffee cup.
Videos on Facebook have become a part of our daily internet life. If you look at the reports on Comscore.com you will see that Facebook comes next to Google sites (primarily Youtube) in desktop video rankings. In fact, in August 2014, as reported by Beet.TV, Facebook surpassed Youtube in Desktop viewing. So if you are considering video marketing it’s definitely the time to consider Facebook as a platform in itself to promote your videos.
Facebook as a platform for your videos is interesting because you see these videos showing up on your feed when you are not particularly looking for something. Before you know it, if the visuals and the video content are right you have not just watched the video,you have shared it as well. Considering that Facebook is no more just a social media platform to make connections, but also one to create a strong brand image, marketing videos immediately become a part of this brand building activity. Collectively we not only watch more videos, but we also post more videos. As wersm.com published in April this year, Facebook boasts of almost 8 billion daily video views.
When done right, video content, be it a high-production branded campaign or an amateur homemade video, can reach millions overnight. Whether it’s a light-hearted moment captured by Chewbacca mum or SKII’s emotionally-charged story about unmarried Asian women, videos continue to dominate the digital realm, and is showing no signs of stopping. And much of that sharing, discussion, and conversion happens within one’s palm.
Around 4 in 10 people living in Asia Pacific owning a smartphone (eMarketer), and thanks to the competitive pricing and improved internet speeds of mobile data plans, consuming videos on the go now is becoming like second nature to users. And there’s plenty of potential for brands to fit into this space.
