Video: A Main Focus Point

Posted by Zach Blank under Video and Lifestyle


Video has always been a powerful tool and a great communicator. We use video to express ourselves in many different ways. We have movies, commercials, vlogs, tutorials, sketches, and more that we are exposed to on a daily bases. These platforms have served as a massive component to modern communication, and there are a lot of opportunities within it.

The first is from a marketing perspective. Someone who is trying to promote a brand, story, idea, product, etc., has an essential task of conveying a message. This requires the ability to capture attention, concentration, and present in a way that is comprehensive and concrete. We as a culture have become increasingly familiar with the concept of gaining information through video. We check the news, find details on products, follow recipes, talk to friends and find entertainment – ALL through video. Because our everyday lives have become so saturated by video content, it's clear what a powerful tool it is to reach people with your message. Its accessibility and familiarity are both factors that drive its ability to connect with people in the comfort of their own time, setting, etc. As visual communication and the ability to absorb content almost instantaneously become increasingly popular, it has become nearly impossible to compete with traditional text content. Though it is still important, it has quite simply lost its ability to generate interest and catch people’s attention. A good way to deliver information, yes, but a way to reel in new interest... not likely. Video can do big things and it's a wasted opportunity not to provide content in this engaging format.

Another angle to approach this is from the industry standpoint. The demand for high quality, cinematic, and well produced video is high. Because of the precedent that's been set, consumers have come to expect video content to be presented at a high level of professionalism when it comes to production value. This is good news for video production agencies, and other branding firms that offer video creation. At the level it has reached, video requires a considerable level of experience, access to a plethora of equipment, and lots of time. This creates a divide between what most businesses need, and what they can provide for themselves. That's where confident video creators come into the picture, and the industry they find themselves in is one that will drive marketing and brands for a long time.

The opportunities that video provide are not something that should be passed up, and this form of engagement is something that everyone should get their hands in. Whether that's hiring a firm to get your brand presented in new video content or learn the trade itself, the value should not be overlooked. Now, stop reading this and start creating!
