SWEET PERKS AT CHAMBER LUNCHEONS

Experiencing a best kept secret restaurant, meeting business colleagues one-on-one, enjoying presentations from new owners. These are sweet perks to attending Chamber of Commerce luncheons for Trustees and Board members. We produced this highlights video for the Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce capturing the congeniality of one event.

 

VIDEO TRENDS

Research proves that people prefer video to all other forms of content when learning about new products and services. Though they might not watch a video with the intention of buying, they’re open to discovery. That makes video a critical part of every stage in your business that relates to your customers.

STORYTELLING VIDEOS ARE POWERFUL

The art of storytelling in any media is the same: A good story well told with moving pictures. Some videos have no dialogue yet they make you emotional and keep you engaged. You remember those. For example, this ultra commercial from a department store chain about a celebrity’s life-altering gift in childhood.

The commercial doesn’t promote the department store or its merchandise. It’s the story about how one thoughtful gift can change a life—lives in this case. The video went viral, it raised awareness of the store, it attracted customers and sales and boosted the store’s brand. Granted, it’s a big budget video (huge) with a big celebrity (huge). But it’s still exemplary of a captivating non-promotional storytelling video in two and a half minutes.

VIDEOS STORYTELLING TIP: AVOID BEING TOO PROMOTIONAL

Telling your audience to buy your product (s) because it’s cheap, it works well, people like it isn’t storytelling. There’s no way that a consumer can connect with that message on a personal level. Considering that the average consumer is bombarded with overly promotional advertisements on a daily basis, it’s the last thing they’re going to want to watch. The trick to avoid being overly promotional is to focus on your audience and what they want, not on you and what you want.

The most effective stories are those that agree with the values of your audience. This means you need to know who your audience is in order to be an effective storyteller. Storytelling is the most effective strategy for relaying your message to your audience and building stronger relationships with them.
