One Compelling Video Idea for You to Steal

By: Gini Dietrich | February 6, 2013 |

Several years ago, I was leaving the office. I had on my coat and hat; I was holding my gloves until the moment right before I stepped outside. My bags were full of things to take home to work on. And I stopped in one of our account executive’s offices to say goodnight.

She was sitting there with two other colleagues and they were talking about video.

The one account executive who was not intimidated by me and had no problem giving her opinion said to me, “You travel the world telling business leaders about how important video is in telling a company’s story, yet we don’t do any of it.”

I looked at her and said, “I agree. But we sit behind our computers all day. What the heck will we talk about on video?”

(Cough, cough.) No one said I’m not stubborn or close-minded occasionally. But I am willing to listen and to think.

The Birth of FBQOTW

And that, my friends, is how Facebook question of the week (or FBQOTW, as some people call it) was born.

I set my bags down, unzipped my coat, and sat down in a chair to listen to what they had to say. Jack Bauer wasn’t happy because I’d told him we were going home so he could have dinner so he sat at the front door and whined.

But I quizzed them about what they were thinking.

This young lady said, “What do you hate almost more than anything else about selling your time?”

I responded I hate it when people ask if they can buy me a latte and pick my brain. When you sell your time, leaving your desk to meet someone for free is extraordinarily expensive. Let’s just say it’s not worth the price of a latte.

Pick My Brain for Free

They went on to suggest we let people pick my brain for free via Facebook.

This had to have been at least four years ago (I just looked – it was March 2009) so using Facebook for business wasn’t yet done. We had a business page, but it wasn’t exactly sophisticated or interesting.

I didn’t think it would work, but I committed to them I would try. I bought a Flip camera (I didn’t yet own a laptop that had a camera) and I taught myself how to use it, how to optimize the tags, how to use YouTube to enhance the views, and how to embed it on the Arment Dietrich home page, here (it’s in the sidebar over there —–> and changes weekly), and distribute it via the social networks.

How it Works

The way it works is this:

  1. People leave a question on our Facebook wall. Of course, that requires you like our page, but gives us the opportunity to show you why you should stick around.
  2. Sometimes the questions are goofy (cough, Danny Brown, cough), but most of the time they’re serious and in areas where people really need some advice or extra help.
  3. I answer the question via video and send it to you.
  4. It then goes on our home page, in the sidebar here, on all of the social networks, and it lives on our YouTube channel.
  5. People feel like mini-rock stars because there now is a video on the web that talks specifically to them and their challenge.

This is one of those efforts that I can’t point to a particular return-on-investment, but I can tell you people tell me all the time they saw my video on such and such and thought it was great or terrible or my hair is too long or they have something else to add.

What it does do is provide another layer to the organization. We all know people buy from people, but more…they buy from people they like and trust.

Why it Works

The weekly videos build that trust and people either like me or they hate me. If it’s the latter, the video has saved me a ton of time in prospecting and meeting with that person, only to discover we’re not a match.

So there’s the big idea you for you to steal. I’m going to leave you with this week’s video, but before I go, I ask you this…how do you use video in your business?

I don’t – yet. Between the weekly podcast and the regular blog posts and guest submissions, I think I’m in a good place with my overall content strategy. 
 
As you well know, I really like to experiment, so video might become another tool for my utility belt.

Hi Gini, I don’t use video created by me yet in my business but plan to in the future to enhance the content. I love your beginning story. When I met you, you were already using video well. In fact, I used you as an example last week when I was teaching a college class on resume writing and career marketing. As I demonstrated Google+, your post on Social Media Experience on the Resume popped up and I thought it was good chance to share the video as another way to use social media. I always use your videos as… Read more »

@JulieMarketing Why thank you, my friend! What are you recommending for people to do with video and their resumes? I have to say, if I received a video with a resume, I’d be impressed and would definitely watch…if it were done well.

Julie Walraven
3 years 5 months ago

@ginidietrich For a job seeker in your field, I could suggest a video (well done, of course) but for most fields, it is not received well. Career Directors International did a hiring survey that I also share with classes and clients that indicates that combined with a traditional resume, some hiring managers would be open to looking at one. Another tool in the arsenal?

@JulieMarketing Very interesting.

Ha! This is great. If I buy you a latte will you help me with the optimizing tags and enhancing views?
 
Kidding aside, our firm films most of our proposal pitches and in many cases we include them in the proposal response. These vids are meant to demonstrate our collaborative process for preparing complex responses along with demonstrating the culture of the firm.
 
We did one recently for a competition and when we won the work the client said that the effort in putting together a story through video tipped the scales. It works!

@rdopping That is SUCH A GOOD IDEA!!! Why have I never thought to do this. You are so smart. For that, I WILL help you optimize tags and enhance views. Yes.

I’ve always loved the FBQOTW. I thought it was a brilliant idea because it gives you a regular series and built it topics to talk about (not to mention the engagement piece). Now, you’re telling me I can steal the idea?! SCORE! 😉   I’ve done a handful of video posts and interviews, but nothing on a recurring basis. I’ve always found that my written posts do much better, but maybe it’s time to give it a while again. Like you, I tell my clients all the time to use video, so I should do a better job of practicing… Read more »

@lauraclick You may have noticed I stopped giving the videos their own blog post and we promote simply by embedding it in the sidebar here and on our home page. The views haven’t gone down (have increased, in fact), and I get my blog property back for the written word, which people tend to like more.

lauraclick
3 years 5 months ago

@ginidietrich I did notice that change. I’m glad to hear that’s worked well. Part of the reason I haven’t done something similar is that every blog post with a video bombed – at least from a video views and pageview standpoint. It might be time to figure out another way to integrate video into the site without giving up the blog post space. Need to think on that.

jasonkonopinski
3 years 5 months ago

@lauraclick  @ginidietrich I’ve been having the same struggle with the podcast posts. Need to integrate them better. Thinking.

ginidietrich

@jasonkonopinski  @lauraclick When we get the new design here launched (It’s been pushed down on my priority list because of client work), you both can steal the video and audio things we’ve incorporated.

I LOVE video. Working within the confines of a rigid B2B market, by far the videos that our community respond to the best are instructional videos on how to use our hardware. When I first thought of the idea to up our video presence, on a whim I made a simple, extremely dumbed down video of how to use a palm vein scanner. When it was finished, I thought “this is awful, poorly done and I want to puke.” I posted it anyway and it turned out to be the highest viewed video in our library.   People like simple.… Read more »

@John_Trader1 And not only that, John, but when you communicate via the written word in the same way, you begin to really make sense to your customers.

@ginidietrich  @John_Trader1 Well now I am going to up my stalking of John… You raise an excellent point, John.  When we do use video, it is all super scripted, edited, produced, and cold as hell. There is no personality or life to it- just a disembodied voice reading off my written instructions. Now how to get “The Brand” to realize this…

You know me (sort of)… I prefer to sing the praises of video.  Yours inspired me to launch #SocialSong Saturday, my weekly Twitter Love Song video, dedicated to the folks tweeting the really good stuff (at least a couple people in this conversation, including you, have been featured). It’s still just a content baby, but is gaining some traction, starting interesting conversations with people (who are also starting to ask if I can do similar things for them… I hope they don’ t mean for a cup of coffee) and, perhaps most importantly, helping me be me online.  And as… Read more »

It really does make one feel like a mini rock star, especially when their video is used in a post about how great videos are! 🙂  For us, we use videos to show what we have going on in our fabrication shop.  We also have clips from conferences at which we’ve spoken and TV programs that have featured @TSIExhibits on our YouTube channel.  I’d like to get a weekly video with a similar FBQOTW format up and running, too.

This was great. Except for the part where you had my question under the “silly” category. Come on! I know you better than that. I really do like how you use video, and keep it short and real. I have not done one since that Hay House contest… but it did get me a finalist spot and free advice from their CEO, without buying him a latte. Maybe I’ll do another soon. There’s a nice, intimate quality to video that makes you feel like you know the person. Thanks for the nudge.

@Katjaib I remember, when I started doing videos, you made fun of me because if I had to scratch my nose while recording, I did it and didn’t edit it out. Truth be told, I didn’t know how to edit it out so you got me in all my glory.

I always thought this idea was awesome. Not only are you building video content, you are fueling conversation on your Facebook page and adding additional medium on your blog. It’s so well-integrated, I wish I had thought of it! A lot of people may struggle to get questions asked via Facebook so another suggestion may be to answer questions asked on LinkedIn in your video and then link to your YouTube channel in the discussion. I need to dabble in more video myself!

@ltcassociates I will always side on the “a face is more relatable” argument. People buy from people. They don’t buy from logos. That said, there is one organization I interact with a lot that uses their logo and there are two different people who are behind it. It drives me INSANE that I don’t know who I’m talking to when I tweet with them. A simple ^with their initials would probably be enough for me.
