AMERICAN CLASSIC PATTI LABEL NEW 2.3 MILLION DOLLAR PIE BUSINESS “GOES VIRAL” VIA VIDEO MARKETING IN A WEEKEND
All last week, Patti’s fans made YouTube video marketing reviews about her pies. Patti’s music never reached as many consumers in one weekend as her famous pies have, and it’s all because of video marketing. It was video marketing genius at its best, even if the legendary singer, self-proclaimed chef and entrepreneur didn’t realize it! Just one of her fans dropped a video and instantly everyone has heard of, purchased and tasted Patti Labelle’s Pies.
I have to say there is something in being An All American Classic, like Patti Labelle and yes, even sweet Potato pie, but to expand across the mediums and be able to market to the masses just using one free video is a millennial movement if I ever saw one.
LESSON #1: Today, a product can be marketed free of cost and faster than it takes to make a commercial. Think about it, the sweet potato pie video went viral and Wal-Mart sold out in a weekend. Video Marketing is making business boom at an all-time high.
LESSON #2: If you do a little research, you will see that a huge number of individuals provide product reviews. Whether it’s food, clothing, or hair products; people like giving their opinions. Looking at what consumers are making video reviews about, helps your business target and relate to your clientele/consumer base.
LESSON #3: Video marketing is the new TV commercial, infomercial and yes, the news. The news is Passé and political, commercials are redundant and infomercials are never what we want to buy. Video marketing is by the people for the people.
The majority of the information shared from a large amount of consumers comes from social media and YouTube, whether it’s current info or something that happened in the past. Just seeing Patti’s Pies become a national hit because a video was uploaded on FB is proof that business can boom from the “new word of mouth”, video marketing.
