Listical Videos

Youtube for once is a great resource site for listical videos; from students to maids and even kisses. The idea is to inject your personal flavour into what you think will compliment your brands. For example, if you are in the make-up industry; perhaps a video like 12 types of lipsticks, 10 types of people in a make-up store or 12 things in a woman’s bag will be suitable. The idea is association and making it casual in order for people to relate to.

Seasonal Videos

What is a sure-fire way to get to your audience? Well, with seasonal videos of course. At this point of time, people are about to celebrate chinese new year and naturally there will be a spike in traffic related to videos in that aspect.

Seasonal videos can even be made in advance so that you can maximise your production cost by having 2-3 productions be shot together. Make sure that your content is SEO optimized as that will be your driving force for your traffic for many years to come. In terms of the 3 videos, this has an infinite ROI due to it being watched more and more by people as the year progresses.


With chinese new year looming, here is wishing everyone a Happy Lunar New Year and prosperity and progress in all aspects of life, from family, marriage, friends and even work.
