Scenario 1 – Without audience knowledge

During the first week we didn’t have the knowledge about our audience and the campaigns were established with basics shares.

The same video and content were promoted using multichannel reaching different public with different interest either. Here the communication was coldest. Without the knowledge about who were our audience it was more difficult to create a “link” with them.

The diagnosis of the video audience management tool:

  • Few visits, few plays on the videos posted;
  • Almost didn’t have engagement on the videos (no comments, likes, retweets or shares).
  • The video audience didn’t show encouraging numbers.

Using the intelligence and the results offered by the video audience management tool, we abruptly changed our approach. We could measure each marketing channel efficiency. Furthermore, we could identify what content was interesting and relevant to each audience segment, based on audience profile and behavior. Moreover, we could find also the influencers.
