Many marketers find tracking the ROI of their video campaigns to be tricky, but that is often the result of poorly developed strategy and improper goal-setting.

Broadly speaking, all video marketing will be looking to do one of three things: build brand awareness and trust, increase sales, and educate and inform your customers and potential customers.

Although there will inevitably be overlap between those broad objectives (in the end, all marketing ultimately hopes to increase revenue), you must first define what you want to achieve.

    Great article Evelyn! As people spend more energy and resources on their video content, it's important to understand what's really working to keep people engaged (content performance) and to drive the desired results (business impact). I did a Chalk Talk on this topic as well and I think our views are very well aligned: Keep Calm and Play On!
