We will take a look at couple of examples of best of viral videos and marketing videos this week.

The best among the viral videos this week has to be the latest one from PES: Following on from their stop-motion hit Western Spaghetti,

PES comes up with yet another short film called 'Fresh Guacamole'. It's crazy, clever and unbelievably well-made http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQMO6vjmkyI

They have used regular items like Poker chips, casino balls and dice to make the 'Fresh Guacamole' as they call it. This can be so brilliantly used for online poker sites to put an in stream video ad on!

Moving on to branded videos on YouTube- Guardian has come up with awesome videos ads off late which share serious aspects of hard hitting journalism with just a tad bit of playfulness which represents the esteemed media brand so well. Our favourite has to be The Three Little Pigs: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vDGrfhJH1P4

Brand new YouTube features to increase efficiency of your video viewing experience:

For once we have a real update to a service to talk about rather than just another press release filler- YouTube has released three major updates to enhance the video viewing experience, which let you have a sneak peak thumbnail of a point ahead on the video when you hover on the bar at that point. Also, you can go back to a visual you want to watch from as the entire video is accessible through thumbnail image of each frame. If you drag the mouse pointer along the bar, you will see the video as a series of thumbnails in succession enabling you to be able to view the video right from the point you want rather than sitting through the entire video. Although the feature would be rolled out to all videos eventually, it is available on most videos with high views.

Also according to YouTube's recent announcement your recommended videos would be based on time spent watching as against purely number of clicks based algorithm used to power related & recommended videos algorithm. Both the in-video and algorithm updates will ensure enhanced viewer engagement. Watch this space for an update from YouTube press centres about viewership data post the updates. http://www.reelseo.com/youtube-related-recommended-videos/

According to the recent survey from Doremus, a multinational business communications company and Financial Times digital media consumption seems to be on increase among senior executives in globally.

Though traditional media consumption figures haven't deteriorated in the target group, various social and digital media sources feature in the mix too for work-related purposes. Here are some findings in nutshell: 76% watch online video. 71% view webcasts. 65% use professional networking sites such as LinkedIn and Plaxo. 63% read blogs.

According to the January report released for the UK market by comScore, the most preferred digital marketing intelligence provider in the world -- the social video penetration figures are 64% of the total population for the UK! This translates to 6 out of 10 of us Brits watch online video fairly regularly. Google, Vevo and Facebook being the top 3 online video properties for the UK, followed by -- not s- surprisingly -- the BBC sites. The viewership percentage is largely uniform across all age groups ranging from 15+ to 55+ years. However, the gender rift is quite evident from the report -- a typical British male is thrice as likely to watch an online video as a typical British female.

Peter Middleton (News)
Following on from the YouTube phenomenon, brands have realised the importance of creating an online presence through YouTube channels and have met great success with exponential return on investment. Here are a few success stories – Marks and Spencer launched their YouTube Channel - Your M&S TV in 2009. Simon Wood – head of M&S online operations mentions that the channel has a view through rate of 10% - which means one in ten viewers visit the M&S on viewing the videos on their channel – which is significant for any online content marketing channel. He also mentioned that the visitors from their YouTube channel spent longer time on the site and looked at 3 times as many product pages as the site averages for visits to marksandspencer.com Online baby products retailers Kiddicare.com use their YouTube channel as products How-To manual. They do not have a high street presence; hence it’s more important for them to focus on customer engagement through all possible channels online. Chris Wood, video commerce manager at Kiddicare shares that Kiddicare customer care team has been using the YouTube channel as a tool for customer support and once pointed to the right video on the channel 90% of the customers received the product information they were looking for. Imagine the number of hours Kiddicare saves each month on customer support by this simple addition to their customer engagement portfolio! What is the fastest growing online ad format in the US? Believe it or not, it’s not search engine optimisation as most of us would have guessed. It’s video advertising! Still not convinced? Have a look at the spend projections table based on International Advertising Bureau data for next 5 years based on 2011 figures: More spend equals to a bigger piece of the online advertising pie for the video ads. The current market share stands at 7.9%, which is just a little more than that for Classifieds and Directories ads. But according to the projections, market share for video ads is expected to double in next 5 years! If you add in the spend on search and banner ads on content sites, it climbs to a staggering 80% of all the money spend on online advertising. Search remains steady at 50% of the market share for now, but the growth rate nosedives as seen in the table, as the search advertising reaches saturation point in years to come. What does that mean for your online advertising strategy? Well, trying out video advertising for your brand if you haven’t so already. Although the data is for the American market, here is a quick pointer why it is on the rise world over – when was the last time you watched a video on YouTube without a banner or pre-roll ad on it? Marketing Implications of Search Plus your World Moving on from Facebook to its closest competitors Google +. Recently Google launched ‘Search Plus your World’ or ‘search+’ The feature was launched to achieve deeper integration of Google+ and Google search, thus making search a more sociable experience. As a result the search results served on Google domains would be more personal and customised to the users signed in on their Google accounts when searching. Google will use the social data like posts from the user on Google+, what people in their circles or they themselves have commented on or +1ed (plus oned) etc. to be able to serve these ‘customised’ search results to users. Having large number of +1s for your site has deeper SEO implications for the website than ‘likes’ on Facebook as the number of +1s will be one of the parameters along with the search algorithm which will be considered whilst serving the search results for that particular user. Since information posted by brands and companies on Google+ will gain prominence in search results, brands can no longer ignore social media as a part of their online marketing strategy and may have to consider running their Google+ profile on the similar lines as onsite search engine optimisation for their websites, using the right keywords and fresh content. Search + is in beta stage right now, but soon to be released to everyone. The feature focuses on search, content and social media presence and can no longer be seen as different things. Hence managing the Google+ profile should be an integral part of your SEO strategy now. So make sure you add it to your agenda for your next meeting with your SEO team.
