Interactive Video

Interactive Video

Create interactive videos that you can get more involved in.

Interactive videos enable the audience to actually participate with your video, increasing engagement and thought process around the subject.  Interactive videos can include quizzes, clickable links, branches and much more.

Enable people to truly engage with your brand through interactive videos

Examples of how you could use an interactive video:

 

  • Hotspots: to encourage people to buy something or visit a particular landing page
  • Branches: people can choose how the story of the video develops (think along the lines of the film Bandersnatch and imagine this for your brand).  This could be useful for training, highlighting key messages or getting a consumer to make choices about a particular purchase choice.
  • Data inputs:  people can complete forms as part of the video, this can be useful for things like client onboarding, induction for new recruits and gaining new newsletter sign-ups.
  • Quizzes: these can be useful to check understanding as part of a training course or could be used externally to highlight which of your products is best for the consumer.

Branded Content

Branded Content

Grow your brand with emotive and engaging videos

Branded video content ensures you are really building trust and resonating on an emotional level with your audience.

The key is to keep it open and honest, yet subtle and grounded in the culture of your brand.

Whilst branded content is closely linked to promotional videos it’s less about the product or service you are offering and more about the emotional connection your brand has with your customers (and potential customers).  In fact, there’s a good chance your video content in this area would contain no call to actions at all.  It is literally about raising awareness, increasing your reach and building a relationship with your audience.  An emotive video can be a powerful tool in your marketing armoury and one you can use across your digital channels to help increase brand awareness, engagement and loyalty.

Internal Communications

Internal Communication

Videos – share vital messages in seconds and communicate in a more personal way.

93% of internal communication professionals believe video has become vital.  (Melcrum Study, 2011)

Using video enables internal communication teams to share vital messages in seconds and communicate in a more personal way than traditional methods.  Ultimately video can save time and money for organisations.

We have worked with organisations such as One Stop Convenience Stores, Willmott Dixon and Secure Trust Bank to produce video for their internal communication campaigns. These have included:

  • A series of interview led videos with leading figures in the business explaining the company brand. In addition, the company commissioned a series of entertaining videos that inform staff about the brand in a fun way were produced as well as interview led videos with customers detailing how they understand the brand and how the work done mirrors the brand values.
  • A series of maintenance training videos enabling staff to memorise information far better than written material.
  • Short event videos utilising employee interviews and videography of the event itself to showcase at the staff event and for use within induction materials and intranet site
  • Company induction videos which communicate information such as health and safety regulations, expectations, company overviews and brand values in an engaging manner.

Ark Media Productions use streaming software to monitor how your video is performing.  We can help you create fully interactive videos – using a mix of live action, animation and/or graphics – which will capture viewers’ attention and help get the message across in an interesting way. Videos can be hosted on your website and accessible via a staff login.
