    5 Tips for Shooting Videos on a Budget

    in Marketing

    Today on Video Marketing Madness - 5 Tips for Shooting Videos on a Budget:

    1) Camera. You can use your iPhone or a good Android (S5 or Galaxy Note). Get an app to control things like the iris and focus. iPhone has one called FiLMiC Pro. You can buy a camera at Best Buy for as little as $400 but make it has an audio input

    2) Camera stabilization. Make sure you have a tripod (and adaptor if you use your cell phone). $40 will get you a good tripod at Best Buy

    3) Audio. Folks judge a video by its audio. Try to stay away from the built it ambient mic and use a lapel mic that plugs into the camera. KV technologies has an adapter for cell phones. Rode makes a mic for cell phones and iPads. Ray sells a mic and tripod for cell phones.

    4) Editing software. IMovie will edit right on your iPhone or iPad. Android has an app as well. Adobe Premier works on a PC or Mac. WeVideo.com is a good, free online editor

    5) Lighting. Make sure you have plenty of that. Shooting outside is good. Indoors -  use LED or modern florescent light bulbs

    Video Marketing Madness made possible today by AWeber...the best way to grow and manage your list.

    A/B Testing and Personalization: An Interview with Adobe's Drew Burns

    in Marketing

    There’s been talk that A/B testing is dead, that this function is problematic and no longer effective for digital marketing. The reality is most marketers aren’t efficiently leveraging or even understanding what A/B testing is. For instance, they mistake redirection – taking a population and introducing it into another experience to see how it affects conversion – for testing, which leaves them feeling like something is still missing. And it is.
    A/B testing is most valuable when it complements discovery mechanisms, such as multivariate testing and automated personalization, to vet a hypothesis first and then use A/B testing to assess it. The issue is that marketers simply aren’t viewing testing holistically – as one part of the marketing puzzle that also utilizes other capabilities such as analytics and targeting. 
    So how does a marketer unlock the full potential of A/B testing? Adobe’s A/B testing expert, Drew Burns, is on the show to discuss how this process works as well as provide real-world use-case examples. He also discusses:

    How A/B testing has evolved from gut instinct to calculated risk
    How an organization can create a ‘testing culture’ that encourages collaboration between marketers and creatives
    The new challenges of A/B testing today such as identifying different variations of creative assets to test, or how a team should be organized in their testing process.
