In the fast-paced realm of marketing, where consumer preferences and technology continually evolve, a strategic approach is essential. As the CEO of a leading video production company, I’ve witnessed the profound impact of video on the traditional 7Ps marketing mix. In this comprehensive exploration, we’ll delve into each P, backed by real-world statistics, to reveal how video not only complements but elevates every facet of marketing strategy.

1. Product: Engaging Through Visual Storytelling

A stellar product deserves a captivating narrative. According to a study by Wyzowl, 85% of consumers want to see more video content from brands. Consumers crave experiences, and videos are the perfect medium to showcase the unique features and benefits of your product. Utilizing videos for product showcases, demonstrations, and storytelling is imperative. The emotional connection established through video content contributes to a 66% increase in qualified leads, translating into higher conversion rates for your product.

2. Price: Justifying with Value-Driven Visuals

In a world where value trumps price, videos play a pivotal role in conveying the worth of your offering. Price is more than just a number; it’s the perceived value that customers attach to your product or service. Videos provide an opportunity to highlight the value proposition, allowing you to justify the price tag. Studies show that 64% of consumers make a purchase after watching a branded video. Create explainer videos and testimonials to articulate the unique value proposition of your product, reinforcing the perceived value and justifying the price tag.

3. Place: Breaking Borders with Global Reach

The concept of ‘place’ has evolved beyond physical boundaries. Videos enable brands to reach a global audience. YouTube alone has over 2 billion logged-in monthly users, illustrating the immense reach of video content. By creating localized and culturally relevant videos, brands can transcend geographical constraints, connecting with diverse audiences on a global scale. Whether through online platforms, social media, or email campaigns, videos make it possible for your brand to be present wherever your audience is.

4. Promotion: Video’s Unparalleled Engagement

The promotional landscape has shifted, with videos at the forefront. Promotion is where video truly shines. Social media platforms thrive on video content, and with 87% of marketers incorporating video into their strategies, it’s evident that videos are key to boosting brand visibility. Video content generates 12 times more shares than text and images combined, illustrating its capacity to captivate audiences and drive engagement.

5. People: Humanizing Brands through Video

Behind every successful brand is a community of loyal customers and advocates. Building a brand is about cultivating relationships. Videos humanize your brand by putting faces to the name. According to Animoto, 54% of consumers want to see more video content from the brands they support. Introduce your team, share customer testimonials, and provide behind-the-scenes glimpses. A well-crafted corporate video can transform your brand from a faceless entity into a relatable and trustworthy identity.

6. Process: Streamlining Communication Effortlessly

Communication is the backbone of marketing processes, and videos simplify complex ideas. Viewers retain 95% of a message when they watch it in a video, compared to 10% when reading it in text. Whether it’s explaining intricate processes, introducing new features, or facilitating internal communication, videos streamline messaging, ensuring clarity and understanding within and beyond the organization. I advocate for the integration of video into internal processes as well, facilitating seamless communication within the organization.

7. Physical Evidence: Visual Impact on Brand Identity

The last 7ps of marketing, physical evidence extends to the visual elements of your brand. High-quality videos serve as powerful physical evidence, showcasing professionalism, attention to detail, and a commitment to quality. In fact, 90% of consumers say video helps them make buying decisions. Whether it’s a product video or a brand story, videos contribute to the visual identity, leaving an indelible impression on your audience.

Conclusion:

As a CEO navigating the dynamic marketing landscape, I’ve witnessed the paradigm shift that video brings to the 7Ps. From shaping product narratives to enhancing promotional efforts, videos are the linchpin for brands striving to stand out. Backed by compelling statistics, the integration of video content into each element of the marketing mix isn’t just a trend—it’s a necessity for brands aspiring to surpass expectations and propel themselves to unprecedented success.
