What are the benefits?
User Generated Content—first merely a “trendy new thing,” is quickly becoming a staple marketing strategy, and for many good reasons. Top reasons to integrate UGC—especially So-Fi Video—are cost, time, authenticity, and engagement.
- Cost: So-Fi Video is far more budget-friendly than hiring professionals, which makes building and maintaining a strong library of assets more achievable. Especially when it comes to video, where professional production involves a whole team of crewmembers and editors, So-Fi Video is a major bargain.
- Time: So-Fi Video is simple. Photos are snapped, videos are shot, and the assets are shared with you. It can all take place within the span of a few minutes. Production for professional work involves planning, scheduling, filming, editing, and then sharing. Professional products can be awesome, but need time for proper execution. If you’re looking for a wide range of assets in real-time, So-Fi Video is the way to go.
- Authenticity: Many brands heavily filter for tone, voice, and presentation. While the filter can yield a polished aura, there’s an inherent separation because the realities of imperfection are washed away. Today’s audiences know that and readily applaud #nofilter. Raw and imperfect = real and authentic.
- Engagement: So-Fi Video has benefits at the end of the campaign and along the journey. The end result is a fully stocked and up-to-the-minute library of assets. Along the way, the very people you’re marketing to have invested in your brand. Not only have they noticed you, but they’ve endorsed you. There’s a connection.
