A mobile video doesn’t just get you exposure, it makes you a part of your customer’s day. You’re engaging with them on their device, which means your talking to them on their terms.
Mobile Video is an Intimate Advertising Channel
More than any other form of video, mobile video productions are opt-in experiences for customers. That makes mobile video difficult to pull off, but it also makes it one of the most intimate advertising channels.

Done right, mobile video is more than an impression, it’s a connection. By playing your mobile video, your customer is inviting you into their life.
If you can reward that with a laugh, and inspiration, or an emotion, you’ve built a powerful relationship to that customer, and possibly to their entire social network.
Mobile Video: Be Authentic & Concise
It’s not universally true that mobile video audiences skew younger, but it is a pretty good starting place. Millennial audiences don’t have a problem with brands, but they do loathe traditional advertising.
To reach a mobile audience, the most important thing your video can do is be authentic.
To reach a mobile audience, the most important thing your video can do is be authentic. Recognize your brand’s strengths, and build a voice around that. Definitely avoid jumping on trends that don’t fit your brand just to try to capture mobile views. Millennials are tuned into that sort of thing. If they smell a rat, they’re not going to stick around for the rest of your video.
It’s also worth considering your audience’s state of mind when they watch your video. Since they’re accessing it on their mobile device, you can’t be sure where they are, or what they’re doing. You can be fairly confident that they’ll be easily distracted. Keep your content short, and interesting, and you won’t lose your audience.
