Staying with my current fascination of Crutchfield, here's how the venerable direct marketer uses video to describe the Polk Surroundbar.
It's quick, crisp, and complements text-based copy or user generated reviews.
Best of all, we capture this information in our database, right? We create an indicator that measures the most recent date a customer viewed a video (and we'll certainly get more sophisticated in time). And when we tailor our e-mail marketing campaigns, we sub-segment the video viewers from everybody else --- offering them vastly different content.
Eventually, we use Multichannel Forensics to see how video micro-channel users evolve and change, knowing and understanding the role video plays in the customer experience.
