10. Do you video here often?
Putting all your eggs in one basket only means you can get robbed more easily. Just producing a few big budgeted videos means you’ll have a few pieces of content to market your fine establishment. Considered making more content with the same budget. Strategize content frequency when it comes to your video marketing.
9. You’re so emotional
As if! Seriously, the emotional content is compelling. You don’t have to make everyone cry, emotional just means adding a pinch of humanity to your content. Brands don’t just compete on price they also compete on how the brand fits into a consumers lifestyle.
8. You’re going to fly that plane, right?

7. Quit on the set!

1. Raisin’ Brand
It’s a pun. As you “raise” your “brand” through video production, it’s critical that you become consistent with tone, emotional direction, font, music selection, and framing and color correction. As you build your library of video content, it’s more powerful to have a cohesive look and feel as opposed to scatterbrained and disorganized un-matching content. Unless, of course, your brand is supposed to be un-matching and disorganized.
Video content and all forward-facing marketing is a reflection of how your business operates. It’s a customer’s peek into your operation. If the video is sloppy and cheap-looking, it’s not impossible to think that your operation, product, or service is also cheap and sloppy.
