"Before working with VevaMEDIA we never knew the potential social media platforms can provide for lead generation".
Before we partnered with VevaMEDIA we really believed that having a blog, sending out quarterly newsletters that were in retrospect very text-heavy with a lot of data. As well as our regular eDMS based on recent financial events out in the market were sufficient and really the only way to connect with our client base. It took us a while to realise that many of the emails sent out were not being opened - we had a very low click-through rate. Instead, our clients who received these emails were calling directly to seek the same information included in our communications. This was taking a significant amount of valuable time out of our day, relaying the same information over and over again to our client base.
Rba have a FaceBook page and before working with VevaMEDIA we never knew the potential social media platforms can provide for lead generation. We didn’t understand what conversions of our posts meant with regards to our return on investment. More so, we didn’t realise the importance of data reporting, and how we could learn and improve our social media activities.
Initially, we were very apprehensive about the daunting task of producing a video, considering our market and main competitors are on the more mature side. VevaMEDIA assigned a Client Success Manager, who was on call when we needed and did most of the heavy lifting for us. This allowed us to focus on running our business. With VevaMEDIA’s approach on doing a deep-dive discovery session with our company before we started even talking about the right messages or scriptwriting, they identified our target market was in fact excited about video. With the videos we have produced with VevaMEDIA we measured the click rates compared to the ones of our EDMS and they were significantly higher.
After working with VevaMEDIA, we are advocates of Video Marketing. The instant feedback we received from our target audience watching the videos was positive and encouraging. We also received constructive feedback on how we can improve and furthermore our audience provided us with topics they want to watch in future RBA videos. We have looped that information back to VevaMEDIA to consider when we produce our next lot of videos.
When we posted our first video VevaMEDIA produced, we were so surprised by the instant feedback we received, the actual engagement we got as a result of our call to action and having higher click through rates to our website. Within the first month of our video being posted on FaceBook, our conversion rates doubled. RBA Financials have never had these types of results with any other marketing medium used to promote our business.
The VevaMEDIA Partnership
Unlike other video production companies, we chose VevaMEDIA because their pricing was simple and to our budget. We didn’t have to deal with a marketing agency and a video production company separately. With VevaMEDIA you get all the services of a marketing agency and a video production company in one. We were going in blind because we have never done videos before.
VevaMEDIA provided us with the pre-planning of the marketing strategy, the scriptwriting and video production, advising where we post our videos on social media through to providing us with the data reporting on the videos’ progress. They worked with us throughout the whole process, which allowed us to run our business.
Obviously, RBA received value for money in getting our videos produced - but more than that it is the time and the experience of the VevaMEDIA team that gave us the greatest value. VevaMEDIA genuinely understands and practise the term ‘partnership’. They were with us every step of the video producing journey, from the beginning, right through to the end.
