Event organizers are occupied with at least two important things: making sponsors happy and ensuring they reach and engage the right audience. An excellent way of doing this is by creating videos for your event. Video content drives engagement and helps you deliver sponsored content to your audience in a relatable way.
In fact, according to the latest research, 52% of marketers say that video helps them connect better with their customers. With several years of experience and our comprehensive boutique approach, Performedia has created great videos for multiple clients. Whether you need a testimonial video to showcase your past attendees, or a full recording of the session to release on-demand, Performedia is always on hand to make the job easier for you.
In this article, we’ll look at some of the benefits of creating video content and show you just how we create amazing videos for our clients.
According to the research, video is winning. Studies show that videos get 12 times more shares than video and text combined. And as Cisco projects, videos will make up about 82% of all online consumer traffic in 2022.
But why does video engage audiences so well? For one, videos have also been shown to evoke emotions that help users connect to the message and share or like the video. Videos make it easier for your message to get to the user quickly and reduce the work of interpretation. This way, videos can quickly establish relevance to a viewer, as viewers can determine what the video is about in a few seconds.
Also, human eyes are attracted to movement. And video creators harness this natural tendency to create memorable and rewarding content. Additionally, videos combine visual and auditory cues, two powerful senses that evoke emotion and incite action. By seamlessly incorporating these senses, videos can capture attention better and facilitate engagement.
Video also gives your organization a more human face. For example, compare the effect of reading a company’s ‘About Us’ page to watching the company’s executives introduce themselves in a short video. Indeed, the latter option is more engaging! While videos do not eliminate the usefulness of text, it’s important to note that there are things video does that text cannot do. And it’s all the more reason to incorporate video into your event.
Here are the benefits of creating video content for your sponsors:
Whatever the event type, visibility is the primary objective of event sponsors. It allows them to gain relevance, build their reputation and engage their target market. And with the ability of video to ensure that the target audience sees and engages with the sponsor, it becomes easier for the sponsor to present their product or brand to their target customer.
A remarkable characteristic of videos is their ability to grab and hold the audience's attention. By connecting with the target audience and demonstrating relevance, videos provide a reason to pay attention to event content. This allows the sponsor to pass their message.
Keeping focused is one of the main issues online audiences face, often due to environmental distractions or plain-old boredom. Videos provide a break from the static slides and a more exciting way to engage with the event. Additionally, you can use video to present a view of the event venue, allowing your virtual audience to have a better feel of the event.
For marketers, screen time is critical. According to the latest research, the average attention span is 8 seconds. Sponsors need to up their game even more to attract their target audience. Thankfully, videos are able to attract people in a few seconds, allowing sponsors to utilize screen time effectively.
Event sponsorships are a great way to generate qualified leads and boost sales for sponsors. This is because, by providing access to target customers, your event allows your sponsors to market directly to them. Videos make marketing easier, allowing you to make more impact.
