How big is the gap between video production and cognitive science? Not as big as it might seem. Because, most likely, you are not looking for a “viral video” that everybody likes and watches. You need to create a message with a specific goal, specific audience and taking into consideration the platform they will watch it on. As video production becomes more accessible, the expectations of your audience become higher too. You need to make sure you address the right points and know exactly what your viewers want or expect to see, what will make them confident or concerned.

Even when you are looking at search driven platforms like YouTube, engagement and relevancy are crucial and grow in importance every day. Google’s search engine can actually “listen” to video to determine and analyze the relevance of the content and use it to rank the website. The result is that pages with relevant video have a 50% higher chance of being ranked than those without. But it’s not as simple as just uploading a video. You need to know how to create targeted “content on demand” that is only then optimized. Kakadu Media shows you how to and makes it easy (as easy as 2 hrs a week to build your YouTube channel).
