Launching 101: Nothing Lasts Forever, But the Impact of Your Launch Can

So it’s gonna be forever, or it’s gonna go down in flames. You can tell me when it’s over, if the launch ignites the fame. Marketing can be stressful, especially when you’re trying to launch a new product or service. In the modern age, where visual content reigns supreme, the significance of launch videos becomes undeniable. These captivating visual narratives possess the potential to command attention, generate excitement, and leave a lasting imprint on your audience. In this post, we’ll talk about everything you need to know about launch videos and why you need one.

Launching 101: Nothing Lasts Forever, But the Impact of Your Launch Can

What is a Launch Video?

A launch video is a video designed to promote a new product or service. These videos come in many forms, ranging from attention-grabbing gimmicks to tantalizing teasers and engaging montages. When done right, these launch videos can entice people to buy your new product and make them look forward to it.  

Why Do I Need a Launch Video?

In the bustling realm of marketing, where competition is fierce and attention spans are fleeting, a launch video emerges as a potent tool for ensuring your new product or service not only makes a splash but creates ripples of lasting impact. Here’s why you need a launch video:

  1. Launch videos are the mini movies of your product. Launch videos offer a narrative platform to tell the story behind your product. Whether it's the inspiration, innovation, or the problem it solves, storytelling adds depth and resonance, forging a connection with your audience. The video can showcase the research and hard work laboured into creating the product, and you can do all that in less than five minutes.
  1. Launch videos can generate buzz around your product. Launch videos are usually striking, mysterious, and memorable. They’re like that one Instagram ad you found while viewing people’s Instagram stories and accidentally swipe away, losing the link but memorizing the content. By creating a visually engaging and emotionally resonant piece of content, sparks will fly around your new product or service. The anticipation stirred by the video becomes a powerful driver of organic discussions, both online and offline.  
  1. Launch videos boost brand visibility and awareness. A well-crafted launch video allows you to showcase the personality of your brand. Whether you want to convey a sense of innovation, playfulness, or sophistication, the video becomes a medium to express and embody the essence of your brand, fostering a connection with your audience. Sometimes, a person isn’t interested in your product, but when they keep seeing the same launch video pop up in their social media feed, they’ll eventually be convinced to trust your brand. In psychology, this is known as the mere-exposure effect or the familiarity principle, which we’ll cover in another blog post.

Tips to Make Great Launch Videos

Creating a compelling launch video involves a combination of creativity, strategy, and attention to detail. Here are some tips to help you make a great launch video:

  1. Understand your audience. Get to know your target audience, get inside their shoes and inside their heads. If Cinderella’s stepsisters were willing to cut off their toes just to get inside her glass slippers, then what’s stopping you? (Just kidding. Please don’t cut off your toes.) Empathy is key, and tailor your content according to your target market’s preferences, interests, and needs.  
  1. Keep it short. The key to a great tease is to keep it short but enticing. Attention spans are short, so aim for brevity. The most effective launch videos are often between 1-3 minutes, delivering the key message without unnecessary details.
  1. Show, don’t tell. You’ve heard of this advice before, but we’re not joking when we say it’s applicable to almost all kinds of creative content. Show the audience what differs your new product from other similar products in the market. Highlight the unique selling points (USP). Utilize visuals to convey your message. Incorporate dynamic shots, animations, or demonstrations to visually represent the product or service in action.
  1. Optimize your video for all platforms. Consider the platforms where you'll share the video and tailor it accordingly. Add subtitles for social media autoplay and optimize dimensions for various platforms.

By combining these tips with a clear understanding of your product and audience, you can create a launch video that leaves a lasting impression on viewers.
