A Marketing Video Plan (MVP) is an important part of any company’s marketing strategy, whether it is to contact and inform new customers, help existing customers get information about new products and services, or train your customers on maintenance and best practices.
These types of associations are trying to reach a targeted audience in several different locations across the country for a number of cooperating members. By sharing ideas and resources these smaller companies can combine their efforts to take part in a larger scale advertising campaign.
Transitions Hair Restoration Consortium
Transitions is a group of hair restoration centers across America, comprised of 40 companies of varying sizes. These companies offer a variety of hair restoration solutions and pool their marketing dollars to help each other build stronger advertising and marketing campaigns.
These types of companies are trying to reach a market segment that is embedded in larger demographic groups. These groups include men and women of various ages and hair restoration needs. A broad advertising campaign is the tried and true method of reaching these customers. Fat Chimp recommended an integrated approach between broadcast advertising and web site media.
To accomplish this plan, Fat Chimp shot testimonials and b-roll with real hair restoration customers from different demographic groups. These models were selected by participating hair restoration companies and all of the video was shot in Syracuse, New York. These models included:
- Desiree – Female 25 to 35 – Laser Hair Therapy
- Sid – Male 45 to 65 – Hair System
- Nikki – Female 25 to 35 – Hair Extensions
- Rhonda – Female 45 to 65 – Hair System
- Kaitlyn – Female 25 to 35 – Hair Extensions
- Tony – Male 25 to 35 – Hair System
- Kim – Female 25 to 35 – Hair System
Each model testimonial was developed into various length commercial spots for different uses on different types of broadcasting and web components.Various spot campaigns were designed to run on local media in all of the designated markets with a 6 month rotation based on the services provided by each company.
The overall campaign objective was to drive potential customers to the company web sites. The television and radio spots were designed to pique potential customers’ interest and have them visit the web site where they can find out more information. Once they reach the web site the longer testimonial explains more about the experience and the quality of service. Everything in the campaign was targeted at helping consumers schedule a free no obligation consultation.

60 Second Radio Spot
