Amy Landino, Co-Founder/Owner of Vlog Boss Studios and Aftermarq, joins the Content Experience Show to discuss video marketing as a long-term investment.
The Long Game
When your business invests in any form of marketing, your primary question is probably, “Did this pay off?” In some cases, the answer may come fairly quickly, but when it comes to building a video marketing program, the payoff can take a little more time.
According to Amy Landino of both Vlog Boss Studios and Aftermarq, a truly successful video marketing program is about building relationships. As with personal relationships of any kind, a good relationship between you and your customers takes time. Video is a powerful tool to help you do this, but you have to be in it for the long haul.
“Content for content’s sake,” including video content, is exactly what has led to today’s oversaturated social climate. Take a step back and strategize. Focus on the quality, both of the content and the production. Look at various platforms, and find where your business fits and where your audiences like to engage. By tailoring your video in this way, you can start to build a real relationship that keeps your customers excited and engaged.

Content Experience Lightning Round
Before the interview, you said your personal interest is travel, but you did not go on a honeymoon. How did that not happen, and when is it going to happen?
Unfortunately, the honeymoon fell to the wayside for a little while because it isn’t work, but Amy and her husband will finally be heading to Aruba in July!
Does your husband have to capture those Instagram stories for you, or do you produce yourself?
Fortunately, they’re a good team. Being owners of a video studio, both Amy and her husband love to nerd out about camera gear and are constantly taking photos and videos!
See you next week!
