What's holding back your video marketing?

Video marketers still struggle with their strategies despite having the best return on investment (ROI) of any media kind.

This article will look at the problems that marketers encounter and how to solve them.

Not having the time to create your own video content

Finding the time to juggle everything is a struggle for marketers because they cover many bases and produce various sorts of content on many platforms.

It should come as no surprise that the biggest problem for video marketers is a lack of time to produce video content. They also mention that pre-production, which entails coming up with concepts, writing a transcript, casting, etc., takes up the most time when discussing a shortage of time.

Having a successful video strategy is one of the best methods to overcome a shortage of time to produce video content.

Not having a large budget to create content

A video marketing budget takes into account every step of the production process, from storyboarding to advertising your films to generate a high return on investment.

If you’re having problems creating a budget, consider using the following breakdown of a typical marketing budget:

Production accounts for 23% of the total.
Pre-production accounts for 26% of total time.
Post-production accounts for about 27% of total time.
