START SMART, SCALE UP, AND
STAND OUT WITH VIDEO!
CONTENT MARKETING INSTITUTE research shows that the best way to be
successful with video is to develop internal processes and basic competency,
experiment, and build experience over time.
By ROBERT ROSE, Chief Strategy Officer,
Content Marketing Institute
Results and best practices from Content Marketing Institute’s
2015 research on video creation for content marketing.

Here at GoAnimate, we love video. We have always assumed everyone else did, too. The marketing hive
mind is committed to a very near future in which video is the new text, the new email, the new post, the
new tweet. So we had to ask ourselves, “Why hasn’t the world turned into one giant video production
studio?” The answer was “barriers.” Our first value proposition was, “Making a video used to be difficult,
time-consuming, and expensive. Not anymore.” Later, we got cute and changed it to, “Making a video
shouldn’t be a drag … it should be drag & drop!”
But the point is the same. Video production needs to be enabled for everyone, at scale, right now.
We first waged war against these barriers as a tiny company. Tiny companies have to have belief. They have to
believe, without hard proof, that the problems they are solving are real. There are no market research budgets,
nor time to ponder research. Just “sense problem, solve problem.” Thankfully, we solved enough problems in
our first few years to grow into a slightly larger company—one that now has a market research budget. And we
could think of no finer partner than Content Marketing Institute to help us determine the underlying need to
make videos; the size, shape, and nature of the barriers to doing so; and the profile of a video-best-practice-en-
abled company. We hope you enjoy this report, and find time to visit us at http://goanimate.com.

Video on the Web is popular. Yes, we state the obvious—but video has truly emerged to become both a huge opportu-
nity and challenge for brands in their content marketing efforts. In terms of how big the opportunity is for B2B market-
ers in particular, consider that a recent study by Forbes and Google found that 75% of senior executives watch work-re-
lated videos on business-related websites at least weekly1
. Additionally, these videos are driving action. In that same
study, Forbes and Google found that 65% of those executives have visited the provider’s website after watching a video.
Furthermore, 53% conducted a search for the solution after watching a video2
.
The biggest challenge, of course, is that the success and popularity of video isn’t a secret to anyone. Brands not only
compete with other marketing videos, but with every other type of video being uploaded to the Web as well. Google es-
timates that more than 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute3
. The number of platforms for video
consumption is growing as well, with mobile video becoming huge. Mary Meeker’s Internet Trends 2015 found that video
now accounts for 55% of all mobile traffic—up almost 10% in just three years4
.
Content Marketing Institute’s (CMI’s) own research found that nearly 80% of B2B companies are using some form of
video in their content marketing5
. This percentage has been steadily increasing over the last three years (70% in 2013,
73% in 2014, and 76% in 2015). Furthermore, B2B marketers rate videos as one of the most effective content marketing
tactics they use (60% who use videos say they are effective at helping them achieve their content marketing objectives).
So, how do today’s marketers rise above the noise? As we started to explore this question, three overarching
challenges emerged:
1.	 How do businesses empower themselves to create videos (cost effectively) in the first place?
2.	 Once they are creating videos, how do they scale this ability across the business?
3. 	Once they have a functional process for creating videos, how do they use this new skill to differentiate the content 		
	 they’re producing?
In short, how do marketers start smart, scale up, and stand out by using video as an intelligent piece of a content mar-
keting approach?
To address this challenge, we decided not to look at how marketers use videos after their production, but rather how
they go about creating them. We chose to look here because many marketers have told us that one of the biggest bar-
riers to using video is getting started. Our hypothesis was that to achieve success with videos as a content market-
ing tactic, businesses must first develop new competencies and distinct processes for creating those videos.
This research study sought to test that hypothesis.

INTRODUCTION
Video – The Big Challenge & Bigger Opportunity
4
To better understand how marketers are creating videos, CMI electronically surveyed a random sample of
marketers across the broader CMI audience. Fielding took place during April 2015. Of the 232 respondents,
82% said they create videos for content marketing purposes.
Of that 82%, nearly half (45%) said they are successful at creating videos. The remaining 55% rated
themselves as less successful.
We then examined the differences between these two groups (the “most successful” video creators and
their “less successful” peers).* The purpose was to understand the gaps and identify best practices for video
creation as a content marketing tactic.
Additionally, we identified and separated those who are not creating videos.
Respondents ranged widely over a number of industry classifications, size of organization, and job title/
function. B2B, B2C, and nonprofit marketers were all represented; however, the majority of respondents were
North American content marketers from B2B companies. We may revisit this for the EMEA and Asian regions
at a later date.

*The “most successful” were those who rated their organization a 4 or a 5 in terms of success at creating video on a 5-point scale, where 5 was
“Very Successful” and 1 was “Not at all Successful.” The “less successful” were those who rated their organization a 1, 2, or 3.

Video is a proven way to engage visitors. It can be one of the most effective ways to tell a story that will hold
customers’ interest along all phases of the buyer’s journey.
Like other studies, our research confirmed that marketers use videos most consistently at the top of the
funnel. The vast majority of our survey respondents (77%) use videos to create brand awareness, while more
than half use them to promote social media/community engagement (63%), communicate brand story (58%),
and generate leads (51%).
There was no appreciable difference be-
tween the most successful video creators
and their less successful peers in terms of
what part of the buyer’s journey they are
most likely to create videos for.
However, when we looked specifically at
B2B companies, we saw that they place
more emphasis on using videos to gener-
ate leads when compared with B2B+B2C
respondents (58% vs. 42%). They’re also
more likely to create videos of customer
testimonials (47% vs. 33%).
When we examined success metrics, the
results were not surprising. We found that
72% of the most successful video creators have one or more metrics in place to measure the success of their
efforts vs. 33% of the less successful video creators.
Another finding is that experience breeds success: 48% of the most successful video creators have five or
more years of experience creating videos. In contrast, only 25% of less successful creators have five or more
years of experience, and 48% have fewer than three years.

FINDINGS
What’s the Big Deal with Video?
6
When we asked marketers whether they outsource video production or create videos in-house, 45% said they
use both methods.
However, company size plays a role: Organizations with fewer than 100 employees are much more likely to pro-
duce videos in-house-only (52%) when compared with large companies with more than 1,000 employees (21%).
Almost half of the most successful video creators (46%) use a combination approach, much like their less suc-
cessful peers (45%). Note, however, that the more successful are more likely to create videos in-house only (43%)
when compared with their less successful peers (36%).
As with most other forms of content production, finding the right balance between insourcing and outsourcing
video creation can have a big impact on overall success.

If our survey results are any indication, it’s not going to get any less noisy this year. Almost a quarter of all respon-
dents (23%) plan to produce more than 30 videos in 2015.
For the most successful video creators, this is even more pronounced: 33% say they will create more than 30
videos this year and only 8% say they will create fewer than five.
The opposite is true for those who are less
successful at creating videos: 37% say they
will create fewer than five videos this year
and 16% say they will create more than 30.
An interesting observation here is the lack
of a bell curve altogether. Other than the
“confidence” gap, there seem to be ex-
tremes at both ends. Most brands are cre-
ating fewer than five videos (24%) or more
than 30 (23%).
However, everybody seems to agree that
“more” are on the horizon. Nearly all re-
spondents (97%) say that compared with
2014, the number of videos they produce in
2015 will increase or remain the same. This was independent of how successful the marketer is at creating videos.
Even 96% of the less successful video creators say they will increase or maintain the number of videos they are
going to create.
Overall, the results point to a growing hunger for more video—but there are no discernible answers to what the
“right amount” currently is.
How Much to Produce?

One of the interesting findings from the Forbes and Google study on video was that while a large number of
executives said they watched work-related videos on a weekly basis, fewer actually watched them on YouTube.
Of those who watched work-related videos weekly, 75% said they watched them on business-related websites vs.
52% who watched them on YouTube6
.
While our study didn’t look at the syndication of video to online publisher websites (such as third-party publisher
sites), we did examine how marketers are using free hosting services (e.g., YouTube), vs. paid services that are free
from advertising (such as Brightcove).
Currently, the majority (78%) make use of free services such as YouTube, 31% host their own videos, and 29% use
external hosting services that simulate an internal infrastructure (such as Brightcove). There was no appreciable
difference between what the most successful video creators are doing vs. their less successful peers, with one
exception: the less successful creators are less likely to use paid external hosting services (25% use them vs. 34%
of the most successful).
How They’re Deploying It
Hosting Techniques Used
	 Total 	 Most	Less
	 Sample 	 Successful	 Successful
Use free external hosting services.................78%.......................77%....................... 79%
Host our own videos on our own servers........31%.......................31%....................... 31%
Use paid external hosting services
that simulate hosting on our own servers......29%.......................34%....................... 25%
Use free services exclusively.........................42%.......................36%....................... 46%
Use paid services exclusively........................10%.......................11%....................... 10%
When we examined where these creators are actually deploying their videos, our findings mirrored many
prior studies. Eighty-five percent said they deploy videos via social media platforms. Beyond that, landing
pages (68%), blogs (61%), corporate home pages (58%), and e-newsletters (48%) round out the top five.
Interestingly, and relating back to the syndication model we discussed above, “paid content promotion
services” was last on the list (19%).

In perfect alignment with the hunger for more videos, 94% of those who are currently creating videos say they
will either increase or maintain their video creation budget during the next 12 months.
Marketers who have at least one metric in place to measure their success at video creation are more likely to
increase their budget than those who have no metrics (56% vs. 32%).
Furthermore, the most successful video creation marketers are more likely than their less successful peers to
increase their budget (54% vs. 36%).
In addition, the most successful spend the most on video creation annually (48% spend more than $25,000 per
year on video creation, whereas 44% of their less successful peers spend less than $5,000 per year).
The survey results also indicate that it is relatively cost-effective to produce videos in-house: 68% of respondents
say it costs them less than $2,500, on average, to create one minute of video internally. On the other hand, only
30% report that external vendors quote less than $2,500 to create one minute of video.
How They’re Spending for It
External Vendor Quotes vs. Average Cost to
Create One Minute of Video Internally
		 Typical External Vendor		 Average Cost to Create One
		 Average Quote for One		 Minute of Video
		 Minute of Video		 Internally
$10,000+......................................................6%...................................0%
$7,500 - $9,999.............................................3%...................................3%
$5,000 - $7,499............................................ .12%..................................2%
$2,500 - $4,999............................................ .34%.................................16%
Less than $2,500.......................................... .30%.................................68%
When we take into consideration our other finding that nearly half of all marketers use a combination
approach of creating videos in-house and outsourcing—and that doing so really has no impact on overall
success at video creation—it seems logical to conclude that one way to scale video production (and get
more bang for your buck) is to develop at least some competency at producing videos in-house.
10
Finally, we looked at the nonusers of video and asked them why their organization doesn’t create videos.
Lack of expertise (44%), lack of budget (41%), and lack of staff/bandwidth (32%) were the most often
cited reasons.
When we asked the open-ended question, “What is the biggest roadblock that needs to come down in order
for your organization to begin creating videos?” responses included:
	 “Ease of use to create and post without issues.”
	 “Video production cost is still quite high compared to blog articles, case studies, eBooks, etc.”
	 “Investments in time and money. Need a production process that is simplified, and isn’t cost-prohibitive.”
	 “Video production seems much more cost-intensive than eBooks or blogs. We need to investigate the 	
	 added value of using video as a marketing tool. For now, there is no added value, so no need
	 to create videos.”
Even so, nearly three out of four respondents (74%) said they are likely to reconsider creating videos within the
next two years. More than half (54%) said they are likely to create at least one video over the next 12 months.
These results align with our other findings that the hunger for video production is very high, independent
of current success (or even current ability) to actually create them. It seems, then, that despite the huge
number of videos being created, we are still in the “early days” of maturity in the space. Therefore,
opportunity is there for those who want to become skilled at creating, scaling, and deploying
video content marketing.
Why Aren’t the Nonusers There Yet?
11
Our survey results indicate a promising future for brands that take the creation of video seriously. When we syn-
thesized the findings, we saw some interesting patterns emerge. By combining those patterns with knowledge
we’ve gained by working with brands that are already using video successfully, we developed three best practices:
	
	 1.	 Invest in the process—not just the output.
	 2.	 Develop specific measurement plans for video.
	 3.	 Use the competency of quality to drive quantity.
1. Invest in the Process—Not Just the Output
One of the primary differences between content marketing and campaign-based marketing is that “learning
how to fish” can be more advantageous than “buying fish.”
This is true with most content marketing, but particularly true with video because of the specialized skills
needed to create it.
Investing in the ability to develop experience in-house, knowing what to outsource and what to create internally,
and having a measurement system in place will enable an organization to use video much more strategically.
CMI has seen many businesses invest in creating a “video department,” subscribe to video creation platforms,
or even hire full-time videographers. But without investing in a process, those efforts will be futile. The video
strategy should be incorporated into the larger editorial calendar so the internal team can make sound
decisions about which pieces of content will be “worthy” of creating high-quality videos around.
One example of this is a B2B manufacturing company we worked with. Two people in their marketing
group are responsible for creating video for corporate PR purposes. They integrate the dates for their major
“productions” with the company’s content marketing calendar. This enables them to leverage their shoots to
capture more thought leadership, testimonials, events, and other marketing-driven videos. By aligning with
the content marketing calendar, they can balance their needs; they know well in advance which pieces they
will create in-house and which ones they will outsource—and how they will repurpose what they create.
Our research confirms that this is a smart approach. Developing internal experience appears to be a key ingredient
to understanding how to balance insourcing vs. outsourcing, as well as creating cost efficiencies over time.
Best Practices for Starting, Scaling, and Differentiating
12
2. Develop Specific Measurement Plans for Video
Only half of the marketers we surveyed (51%) have at least one metric in place to measure the success of their
video creation efforts. This percentage is higher, however, for the most successful video creators (72%).
Indeed, many businesses struggle with how to measure the return on their “video investment.” Too often,
success is equated with “views” rather than “ actions taken.” Views are, ostensibly, the “hits” of the early 1990s
website world. But for brands, it’s not sufficient just to get more eyeballs to watch their videos. They need to
engage and motivate those eyeballs. What’s important is the action taken after watching the video.
One framework that we at CMI have seen work is the 3 X 3 Method. This framework aligns video around
three purposes, and then aligns each of those with a measurement framework. Then, each purpose is
aligned with three categories: the corporate calendar, the marketing campaign calendar, and the content
marketing calendar.
The Corporate Category—these videos are produced around the business. They include recordings of
C-suite speeches, company events, internal training videos, etc. They are usually measured simply by getting
them done on time and within budget.
The Marketing Campaign Category—the purpose of these videos is to sell or persuade customers to “buy.”
While these may ultimately look more like “advertising,” they are assets that support a direct marketing
campaign, a product launch, or some such selling campaign. They may include product demos, how-to’s, or
ads. The main differentiator is the focus on the product/service and the sales-oriented call to action.
Measurement is marketing-metric based: How many leads did this video produce? How many clicks on the
call-to-action? What was the cost-per-lead, etc.?
The Content Marketing Category—these videos are developed to educate, entertain, or in some way deliver
value that is separate from the product or service. They may be educational or thought leadership-focused,
or they may be fun, entertaining videos meant to inspire someone. Their main differentiator is the focus on
the “story” or the “value” that is separate from the product. These videos should have a call-to-action to
“subscribe,” or to “attend an event,” or to “watch another video,” but they are meant to drive the “approach,”
not the “product” of the company.
13
These videos are measured by the actions taken to further the approach, or changes in consumer behavior
that move the content marketing mission forward.
Examples of video-specific metrics include:
	 Clicked play: tracking the number of plays initiated
	 Attention gained: tracking the percentage of video watched
	 Attention overall: tracking the number of videos as a whole consumed in entirety
	 Action taken (e.g., form fills or clicks on calls to action embedded within the end of the video)
	 Shares: number of times the video was shared
The video team can use these three categories to create and repurpose video based on a purpose. Once they
align a calendar with the corporate, marketing, and content marketing calendars, they can plan for the “big
rock” productions and determine how (or if) they can repurpose each video for the different categories. This
will give each video a target to be repurposed for as many categories as possible, and give the team leverage
to create different “versions” of the videos as necessary.
14
3. Use the Competency of Quality to Drive Quantity
One of the questions we get asked all the time is, “How much content should we produce?” The answer is
simple: “As much as you can be great at.”
Whether you choose to outsource, completely insource your video, or maintain some balance, the key is to
understand the strategy and the process so that video creation is developed as a true competency.
This means assigning resources and developing skills (through training and professional development).
When we look at the best practices for creating powerful videos that stand out, some of the traits we most
commonly see are:
	 Understanding the power of story—understanding dramatic structure, and how to create something 		
	 that sets up dramatic tension, creates a compelling through-line, and ultimately tells a story.
	 The benefits of storyboarding—where you are not only scripting the video, but actually sketching out
	 the major “scenes” of the video before you create it. Not only will this help you sell your ideas
	 to noncreative types within your organization (who may need help visualizing), but it also will help the
	 videographers understand the coverage that you’ll need. There’s nothing worse than editing a video and
	 realizing you didn’t shoot something that would’ve really made it sing.
	 Understanding the technical details of audio and video—poor audio can ruin a great video.
	 Understanding how to capture audio, especially in a live environment, can be the make-or-break of
	 something that stands out. Also, applying great music or sound effects can be crucial to producing a video
	 that doesn’t sound (or feel) like every other one out there.
All of these (and certainly others) are competencies that your business may or may not be able to develop. The
key is to identify which ones you WILL develop in order to know where to bring in outsourced talent over time.
Truly understanding this competency will enable you to scale and create videos that will stand out from the
crowd.
15
There is no doubt that businesses are finding tremendous success with video. As we mentioned in the
introduction, nearly two-thirds of the B2B respondents to CMI’s annual content marketing survey who use
videos say videos are effective at helping them meet their content marketing objectives.
However, this success assumes that the business was capable of creating videos in the first place. What this
research illuminated for us was that creating video isn’t “rocket science” relegated to only a small number of
highly skilled artists and technicians in Hollywood or New York City. It is simply another content type that needs
to be adopted and practiced. Brands that are successful with video experiment with it more frequently and get
better at it over time. If the business can get over the “fear of flying” with video, it would appear that practice
does, indeed, make perfect.
Action!

Start Smart, Scale Up, And Stand Out With Video

  • 1. START SMART, SCALE UP, AND STAND OUT WITH VIDEO! CONTENT MARKETING INSTITUTE research shows that the best way to be successful with video is to develop internal processes and basic competency, experiment, and build experience over time. By ROBERT ROSE, Chief Strategy Officer, Content Marketing Institute Results and best practices from Content Marketing Institute’s 2015 research on video creation for content marketing. July 2015
  • 2. 2 Here at GoAnimate, we love video. We have always assumed everyone else did, too. The marketing hive mind is committed to a very near future in which video is the new text, the new email, the new post, the new tweet. So we had to ask ourselves, “Why hasn’t the world turned into one giant video production studio?” The answer was “barriers.” Our first value proposition was, “Making a video used to be difficult, time-consuming, and expensive. Not anymore.” Later, we got cute and changed it to, “Making a video shouldn’t be a drag … it should be drag & drop!” But the point is the same. Video production needs to be enabled for everyone, at scale, right now. We first waged war against these barriers as a tiny company. Tiny companies have to have belief. They have to believe, without hard proof, that the problems they are solving are real. There are no market research budgets, nor time to ponder research. Just “sense problem, solve problem.” Thankfully, we solved enough problems in our first few years to grow into a slightly larger company—one that now has a market research budget. And we could think of no finer partner than Content Marketing Institute to help us determine the underlying need to make videos; the size, shape, and nature of the barriers to doing so; and the profile of a video-best-practice-en- abled company. We hope you enjoy this report, and find time to visit us at http://goanimate.com.
  • 3. 3 Video on the Web is popular. Yes, we state the obvious—but video has truly emerged to become both a huge opportu- nity and challenge for brands in their content marketing efforts. In terms of how big the opportunity is for B2B market- ers in particular, consider that a recent study by Forbes and Google found that 75% of senior executives watch work-re- lated videos on business-related websites at least weekly1 . Additionally, these videos are driving action. In that same study, Forbes and Google found that 65% of those executives have visited the provider’s website after watching a video. Furthermore, 53% conducted a search for the solution after watching a video2 . The biggest challenge, of course, is that the success and popularity of video isn’t a secret to anyone. Brands not only compete with other marketing videos, but with every other type of video being uploaded to the Web as well. Google es- timates that more than 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute3 . The number of platforms for video consumption is growing as well, with mobile video becoming huge. Mary Meeker’s Internet Trends 2015 found that video now accounts for 55% of all mobile traffic—up almost 10% in just three years4 . Content Marketing Institute’s (CMI’s) own research found that nearly 80% of B2B companies are using some form of video in their content marketing5 . This percentage has been steadily increasing over the last three years (70% in 2013, 73% in 2014, and 76% in 2015). Furthermore, B2B marketers rate videos as one of the most effective content marketing tactics they use (60% who use videos say they are effective at helping them achieve their content marketing objectives). So, how do today’s marketers rise above the noise? As we started to explore this question, three overarching challenges emerged: 1. How do businesses empower themselves to create videos (cost effectively) in the first place? 2. Once they are creating videos, how do they scale this ability across the business? 3. Once they have a functional process for creating videos, how do they use this new skill to differentiate the content they’re producing? In short, how do marketers start smart, scale up, and stand out by using video as an intelligent piece of a content mar- keting approach? To address this challenge, we decided not to look at how marketers use videos after their production, but rather how they go about creating them. We chose to look here because many marketers have told us that one of the biggest bar- riers to using video is getting started. Our hypothesis was that to achieve success with videos as a content market- ing tactic, businesses must first develop new competencies and distinct processes for creating those videos. This research study sought to test that hypothesis. 1. http://www.forbes.com/forbesinsights/video_in_the_csuite/ 2. http://www.forbes.com/forbesinsights/video_in_the_csuite/ 3. https://www.youtube.com/yt/press/statistics.html 4. http://www.slideshare.net/kleinerperkins/internet-trends-v1 5. http://contentmarketinginstitute.com/2014/10/2015-b2b-content-marketing-research/ INTRODUCTION Video – The Big Challenge & Bigger Opportunity
  • 4. 4 To better understand how marketers are creating videos, CMI electronically surveyed a random sample of marketers across the broader CMI audience. Fielding took place during April 2015. Of the 232 respondents, 82% said they create videos for content marketing purposes. Of that 82%, nearly half (45%) said they are successful at creating videos. The remaining 55% rated themselves as less successful. We then examined the differences between these two groups (the “most successful” video creators and their “less successful” peers).* The purpose was to understand the gaps and identify best practices for video creation as a content marketing tactic. Additionally, we identified and separated those who are not creating videos. Respondents ranged widely over a number of industry classifications, size of organization, and job title/ function. B2B, B2C, and nonprofit marketers were all represented; however, the majority of respondents were North American content marketers from B2B companies. We may revisit this for the EMEA and Asian regions at a later date. METHODOLOGY Industry Classification Title/Job FunctionSize of Organization 29% 28% 41% 23% 17% 8% 5% 6% 31% 21% 20% 15% 9% 5% 6% 36% ■ Advertising/Communications/ Marketing/PR ■ Technology ■ Publishing/Media ■ Consulting ■ Manufacturing ■ Other ■ Marketing/Advertising/ Communications/PR Management ■ Corporate Management/Owner ■ Content Creation/Management ■ Marketing Administration/Support ■ General Management ■ Other ■ Micro (Fewer than 10 Employees) ■ Small (10-99 Employees) ■ Midsize (100-999 Employees) ■ Large (1,000+ Employees) *The “most successful” were those who rated their organization a 4 or a 5 in terms of success at creating video on a 5-point scale, where 5 was “Very Successful” and 1 was “Not at all Successful.” The “less successful” were those who rated their organization a 1, 2, or 3.
  • 5. 5 Video is a proven way to engage visitors. It can be one of the most effective ways to tell a story that will hold customers’ interest along all phases of the buyer’s journey. Like other studies, our research confirmed that marketers use videos most consistently at the top of the funnel. The vast majority of our survey respondents (77%) use videos to create brand awareness, while more than half use them to promote social media/community engagement (63%), communicate brand story (58%), and generate leads (51%). There was no appreciable difference be- tween the most successful video creators and their less successful peers in terms of what part of the buyer’s journey they are most likely to create videos for. However, when we looked specifically at B2B companies, we saw that they place more emphasis on using videos to gener- ate leads when compared with B2B+B2C respondents (58% vs. 42%). They’re also more likely to create videos of customer testimonials (47% vs. 33%). When we examined success metrics, the results were not surprising. We found that 72% of the most successful video creators have one or more metrics in place to measure the success of their efforts vs. 33% of the less successful video creators. Another finding is that experience breeds success: 48% of the most successful video creators have five or more years of experience creating videos. In contrast, only 25% of less successful creators have five or more years of experience, and 48% have fewer than three years.

  • 6. 6 When we asked marketers whether they outsource video production or create videos in-house, 45% said they use both methods. However, company size plays a role: Organizations with fewer than 100 employees are much more likely to pro- duce videos in-house-only (52%) when compared with large companies with more than 1,000 employees (21%). Almost half of the most successful video creators (46%) use a combination approach, much like their less suc- cessful peers (45%). Note, however, that the more successful are more likely to create videos in-house only (43%) when compared with their less successful peers (36%). As with most other forms of content production, finding the right balance between insourcing and outsourcing video creation can have a big impact on overall success.

  • 7. 7 If our survey results are any indication, it’s not going to get any less noisy this year. Almost a quarter of all respon- dents (23%) plan to produce more than 30 videos in 2015. For the most successful video creators, this is even more pronounced: 33% say they will create more than 30 videos this year and only 8% say they will create fewer than five. The opposite is true for those who are less successful at creating videos: 37% say they will create fewer than five videos this year and 16% say they will create more than 30. An interesting observation here is the lack of a bell curve altogether. Other than the “confidence” gap, there seem to be ex- tremes at both ends. Most brands are cre- ating fewer than five videos (24%) or more than 30 (23%). However, everybody seems to agree that “more” are on the horizon. Nearly all re- spondents (97%) say that compared with 2014, the number of videos they produce in 2015 will increase or remain the same. This was independent of how successful the marketer is at creating videos. Even 96% of the less successful video creators say they will increase or maintain the number of videos they are going to create. Overall, the results point to a growing hunger for more video—but there are no discernible answers to what the “right amount” currently is. How Much to Produce?

  • 8. 8 One of the interesting findings from the Forbes and Google study on video was that while a large number of executives said they watched work-related videos on a weekly basis, fewer actually watched them on YouTube. Of those who watched work-related videos weekly, 75% said they watched them on business-related websites vs. 52% who watched them on YouTube6 . While our study didn’t look at the syndication of video to online publisher websites (such as third-party publisher sites), we did examine how marketers are using free hosting services (e.g., YouTube), vs. paid services that are free from advertising (such as Brightcove). Currently, the majority (78%) make use of free services such as YouTube, 31% host their own videos, and 29% use external hosting services that simulate an internal infrastructure (such as Brightcove). There was no appreciable difference between what the most successful video creators are doing vs. their less successful peers, with one exception: the less successful creators are less likely to use paid external hosting services (25% use them vs. 34% of the most successful). How They’re Deploying It Hosting Techniques Used Total Most Less Sample Successful Successful Use free external hosting services.................78%.......................77%....................... 79% Host our own videos on our own servers........31%.......................31%....................... 31% Use paid external hosting services that simulate hosting on our own servers......29%.......................34%....................... 25% Use free services exclusively.........................42%.......................36%....................... 46% Use paid services exclusively........................10%.......................11%....................... 10% When we examined where these creators are actually deploying their videos, our findings mirrored many prior studies. Eighty-five percent said they deploy videos via social media platforms. Beyond that, landing pages (68%), blogs (61%), corporate home pages (58%), and e-newsletters (48%) round out the top five. Interestingly, and relating back to the syndication model we discussed above, “paid content promotion services” was last on the list (19%). 6. http://images.forbes.com/forbesinsights/StudyPDFs/Video_in_the_CSuite.pdf
  • 9. 9 In perfect alignment with the hunger for more videos, 94% of those who are currently creating videos say they will either increase or maintain their video creation budget during the next 12 months. Marketers who have at least one metric in place to measure their success at video creation are more likely to increase their budget than those who have no metrics (56% vs. 32%). Furthermore, the most successful video creation marketers are more likely than their less successful peers to increase their budget (54% vs. 36%). In addition, the most successful spend the most on video creation annually (48% spend more than $25,000 per year on video creation, whereas 44% of their less successful peers spend less than $5,000 per year). The survey results also indicate that it is relatively cost-effective to produce videos in-house: 68% of respondents say it costs them less than $2,500, on average, to create one minute of video internally. On the other hand, only 30% report that external vendors quote less than $2,500 to create one minute of video. How They’re Spending for It External Vendor Quotes vs. Average Cost to Create One Minute of Video Internally Typical External Vendor Average Cost to Create One Average Quote for One Minute of Video Minute of Video Internally $10,000+......................................................6%...................................0% $7,500 - $9,999.............................................3%...................................3% $5,000 - $7,499............................................ .12%..................................2% $2,500 - $4,999............................................ .34%.................................16% Less than $2,500.......................................... .30%.................................68% When we take into consideration our other finding that nearly half of all marketers use a combination approach of creating videos in-house and outsourcing—and that doing so really has no impact on overall success at video creation—it seems logical to conclude that one way to scale video production (and get more bang for your buck) is to develop at least some competency at producing videos in-house.
  • 10. 10 Finally, we looked at the nonusers of video and asked them why their organization doesn’t create videos. Lack of expertise (44%), lack of budget (41%), and lack of staff/bandwidth (32%) were the most often cited reasons. When we asked the open-ended question, “What is the biggest roadblock that needs to come down in order for your organization to begin creating videos?” responses included: “Ease of use to create and post without issues.” “Video production cost is still quite high compared to blog articles, case studies, eBooks, etc.” “Investments in time and money. Need a production process that is simplified, and isn’t cost-prohibitive.” “Video production seems much more cost-intensive than eBooks or blogs. We need to investigate the added value of using video as a marketing tool. For now, there is no added value, so no need to create videos.” Even so, nearly three out of four respondents (74%) said they are likely to reconsider creating videos within the next two years. More than half (54%) said they are likely to create at least one video over the next 12 months. These results align with our other findings that the hunger for video production is very high, independent of current success (or even current ability) to actually create them. It seems, then, that despite the huge number of videos being created, we are still in the “early days” of maturity in the space. Therefore, opportunity is there for those who want to become skilled at creating, scaling, and deploying video content marketing. Why Aren’t the Nonusers There Yet?
  • 11. 11 Our survey results indicate a promising future for brands that take the creation of video seriously. When we syn- thesized the findings, we saw some interesting patterns emerge. By combining those patterns with knowledge we’ve gained by working with brands that are already using video successfully, we developed three best practices: 1. Invest in the process—not just the output. 2. Develop specific measurement plans for video. 3. Use the competency of quality to drive quantity. 1. Invest in the Process—Not Just the Output One of the primary differences between content marketing and campaign-based marketing is that “learning how to fish” can be more advantageous than “buying fish.” This is true with most content marketing, but particularly true with video because of the specialized skills needed to create it. Investing in the ability to develop experience in-house, knowing what to outsource and what to create internally, and having a measurement system in place will enable an organization to use video much more strategically. CMI has seen many businesses invest in creating a “video department,” subscribe to video creation platforms, or even hire full-time videographers. But without investing in a process, those efforts will be futile. The video strategy should be incorporated into the larger editorial calendar so the internal team can make sound decisions about which pieces of content will be “worthy” of creating high-quality videos around. One example of this is a B2B manufacturing company we worked with. Two people in their marketing group are responsible for creating video for corporate PR purposes. They integrate the dates for their major “productions” with the company’s content marketing calendar. This enables them to leverage their shoots to capture more thought leadership, testimonials, events, and other marketing-driven videos. By aligning with the content marketing calendar, they can balance their needs; they know well in advance which pieces they will create in-house and which ones they will outsource—and how they will repurpose what they create. Our research confirms that this is a smart approach. Developing internal experience appears to be a key ingredient to understanding how to balance insourcing vs. outsourcing, as well as creating cost efficiencies over time. Best Practices for Starting, Scaling, and Differentiating
  • 12. 12 2. Develop Specific Measurement Plans for Video Only half of the marketers we surveyed (51%) have at least one metric in place to measure the success of their video creation efforts. This percentage is higher, however, for the most successful video creators (72%). Indeed, many businesses struggle with how to measure the return on their “video investment.” Too often, success is equated with “views” rather than “ actions taken.” Views are, ostensibly, the “hits” of the early 1990s website world. But for brands, it’s not sufficient just to get more eyeballs to watch their videos. They need to engage and motivate those eyeballs. What’s important is the action taken after watching the video. One framework that we at CMI have seen work is the 3 X 3 Method. This framework aligns video around three purposes, and then aligns each of those with a measurement framework. Then, each purpose is aligned with three categories: the corporate calendar, the marketing campaign calendar, and the content marketing calendar. The Corporate Category—these videos are produced around the business. They include recordings of C-suite speeches, company events, internal training videos, etc. They are usually measured simply by getting them done on time and within budget. The Marketing Campaign Category—the purpose of these videos is to sell or persuade customers to “buy.” While these may ultimately look more like “advertising,” they are assets that support a direct marketing campaign, a product launch, or some such selling campaign. They may include product demos, how-to’s, or ads. The main differentiator is the focus on the product/service and the sales-oriented call to action. Measurement is marketing-metric based: How many leads did this video produce? How many clicks on the call-to-action? What was the cost-per-lead, etc.? The Content Marketing Category—these videos are developed to educate, entertain, or in some way deliver value that is separate from the product or service. They may be educational or thought leadership-focused, or they may be fun, entertaining videos meant to inspire someone. Their main differentiator is the focus on the “story” or the “value” that is separate from the product. These videos should have a call-to-action to “subscribe,” or to “attend an event,” or to “watch another video,” but they are meant to drive the “approach,” not the “product” of the company.
  • 13. 13 These videos are measured by the actions taken to further the approach, or changes in consumer behavior that move the content marketing mission forward. Examples of video-specific metrics include:  Clicked play: tracking the number of plays initiated  Attention gained: tracking the percentage of video watched  Attention overall: tracking the number of videos as a whole consumed in entirety  Action taken (e.g., form fills or clicks on calls to action embedded within the end of the video)  Shares: number of times the video was shared The video team can use these three categories to create and repurpose video based on a purpose. Once they align a calendar with the corporate, marketing, and content marketing calendars, they can plan for the “big rock” productions and determine how (or if) they can repurpose each video for the different categories. This will give each video a target to be repurposed for as many categories as possible, and give the team leverage to create different “versions” of the videos as necessary.
  • 14. 14 3. Use the Competency of Quality to Drive Quantity One of the questions we get asked all the time is, “How much content should we produce?” The answer is simple: “As much as you can be great at.” Whether you choose to outsource, completely insource your video, or maintain some balance, the key is to understand the strategy and the process so that video creation is developed as a true competency. This means assigning resources and developing skills (through training and professional development). When we look at the best practices for creating powerful videos that stand out, some of the traits we most commonly see are:  Understanding the power of story—understanding dramatic structure, and how to create something that sets up dramatic tension, creates a compelling through-line, and ultimately tells a story.  The benefits of storyboarding—where you are not only scripting the video, but actually sketching out the major “scenes” of the video before you create it. Not only will this help you sell your ideas to noncreative types within your organization (who may need help visualizing), but it also will help the videographers understand the coverage that you’ll need. There’s nothing worse than editing a video and realizing you didn’t shoot something that would’ve really made it sing.  Understanding the technical details of audio and video—poor audio can ruin a great video. Understanding how to capture audio, especially in a live environment, can be the make-or-break of something that stands out. Also, applying great music or sound effects can be crucial to producing a video that doesn’t sound (or feel) like every other one out there. All of these (and certainly others) are competencies that your business may or may not be able to develop. The key is to identify which ones you WILL develop in order to know where to bring in outsourced talent over time. Truly understanding this competency will enable you to scale and create videos that will stand out from the crowd.
  • 15. 15 There is no doubt that businesses are finding tremendous success with video. As we mentioned in the introduction, nearly two-thirds of the B2B respondents to CMI’s annual content marketing survey who use videos say videos are effective at helping them meet their content marketing objectives. However, this success assumes that the business was capable of creating videos in the first place. What this research illuminated for us was that creating video isn’t “rocket science” relegated to only a small number of highly skilled artists and technicians in Hollywood or New York City. It is simply another content type that needs to be adopted and practiced. Brands that are successful with video experiment with it more frequently and get better at it over time. If the business can get over the “fear of flying” with video, it would appear that practice does, indeed, make perfect. Action! CONCLUSION
