Mul­ti­me­dia mar­ket­ing involves string­ing togeth­er sev­er­al types of con­tent in order to pro­duce and pro­vide some­thing com­plete­ly unique to con­sumers. Gone are the days that a tra­di­tion­al, writ­ten blog post could alone suf­fice for shar­ing, for engag­ing and for poten­tial­ly going viral. The web is thick­ly pop­u­lat­ed by com­pa­nies, enti­ties, and indi­vid­u­als aggres­sive­ly com­pet­ing for audi­ence atten­tion.

The only way to break through and reach consumers? Provide something masterfully witty and engaging.

Why multimedia works:

  • The brain process­es high­ly visu­al con­tent more quick­ly, so by includ­ing video, pho­to, graph­ics, and charts, con­sumers more read­i­ly digest your infor­ma­tion.
  • Visu­al con­tent stays in the long-term mem­o­ry.
  • Mul­ti­me­dia appeals to mul­ti­ple learn­ing styles, which ranges from visu­al, audi­to­ry and kines­thet­ic. By serv­ing mul­ti­me­dia, you can engage with sev­er­al types of learn­ers at once.

Types of multimedia content:

  • Video allows a brand to uti­lize ani­mat­ed footage for brand­ed con­tent, live video for behind-the-scenes access, and text video for tuto­ri­als on prod­ucts and ser­vices.
  • Info­graph­ics such as quizzes and flow­charts are more invit­ing and engag­ing for con­sumers by cre­at­ing an enter­tain­ing, inti­mate expe­ri­ence with your brand.
  • Maps and time­lines can be used to sim­pli­fy com­plex his­to­ries, expla­na­tions, and heaps of infor­ma­tion. Both resem­ble art and invite the audi­ence to more close­ly dis­sect and inter­pret the con­tent.

How to choose which multimedia is right for your brand:

  • Cre­ate quan­tifi­able goals and mea­sure which tac­tics make progress toward achieve­ment.
  • Run tests with sam­ple audi­ence groups to deter­mine effec­tive­ness.
  • Dif­fer­en­ti­ate leads from views. Remem­ber, high traf­fic does not always yield sales con­ver­sions.
