    Hi all,

    My new video creator made this video (with my supervision) in just an afternoon. What do you think of the quality of this output for a launch video of a new blog next week?

    - I was wondering whether 28 seconds video is too long for a teaser? Should it better be 10-15 seconds?

    By the looks of it you are selling prenatal items; if I'm right, your video is completely wrong.

    Music - Images sequence - Colors - Layout

    You want an honest opinion? That will scare the shit out of your target audience (if your audience is pregnant woman or new moms)

    Hello,

    my honest review: bad, very bad. Sounds and video assault the audience, it's epileptic.

    You want to sell to new mums or expectant mothers ? Make something soft and nice.

    Yes. I agree with all of the above. Epileptic is the word. But don't lose heart.

    Wow, good to hear your feedback. Much appreciated. However, I don't know if I agree with you guys, sorry, but it's my fault to not mention the idea behind this concept of the video. After proper audience research through (quality and quantity research) we came to the conclusion that the audience does not feel attracted to the brand because of the main reason that the previous marketing activities did not match them. We were targeting them as too much of 'adults' above 30 years old. In fact the target audience seems to be in the age of mainly 18 - 25 years old, are fashionable, listens to electrohouse and mainstream nowadays artists like Calvin Harris, Afrojack etc. Long story short; they needed a fresh storm. That's why we came into this new marketing strategy to dare to be different and 'nowadays'. Anyway, I still respect your opinion!

    Do you guys think the duration of the teaser is good or bad? What works the best in your opinion?

    Thanks!

    You are absolutely right. Ignore what these idiots say.

    In a past life I was about as hardcore a clubber as you could possibly imagine

    And I always remember being amazed at how many pregnant women I used to see on the stage with their hands in the air and massively dilated pupils.

    Damn, those pregnant girls like to party!

    I think you could probably get a better made video with exactly what you want.

    I could probably create what you've got up there in an hour or 2 myself and I'm no expert with video creation.

    I think your idea is decent enough but maybe show it more professionally.

    Well, I don't know if I'm right, but that is not important in this case as I just want to hear feedback. About pregnant young women; basically after the we did the questionaries we came to the conclusion that merely 15% were pregnant young women and most of the audience were young mommy's. Where I live it's pretty usual to have kids at a 'young' age around 20 years old.

    Thanks for feedback anyway.

    Having Calvin Harris music is one thing, but the fact that the same transition was repeated multiple times and the video basically ends before 8 seconds of plain white text on a black background is displayed, makes me worry about what else your "video creator" produces.

    But what you are failing to do is realise that what young parents do on their nights out and how they bring up their children are two different things.

    When they go out, they have their drinking/dancing/partying/having fun heads on.

    When they get up in the morning with a sore head and prepare their baby's bottle they have their parenting/sensible/adult heads on.

    Advertising that appeals to one head will not appeal to the other head.

    Hello,

    You know, when you just had a baby, you do need three things: sleep, sleep and sleep!

    And your lifestyle changes.

    My honest opinion is that you had 28 seconds to tell me a story and I watched it without reading the comments and I have no idea what it is about. Seems to start off with a random hacker then looks like I might be looking at some Amazon pages that fly past so fast I have no idea what they are. Then it switches to maybe some women that look like they are on catwalks whilst the whole time the music is about what we did when we met in the summer.

    If you look at TV, radio, magazine or even Youtube adverts there are very few now that try and be a little bit edgy. They have realised that people don't want to think, we don't have time to think and we won't replay it to just find out what it is about. TV, radio and magazine adverts still work on - here is the product, you need this product and here is how you can buy this product.

    I live in the UK which is the European capital of young pregnancies and these youngsters like to dress their babies up like little dolls and treat them like trophies. They might like hip hop and all that but I can guarantee that there is far more of them at home that need to be sold to, they are stuck at home, bored, cant get out, cant get babysitters, cant afford party nights or are just plain tired and want to dress their little cherubs up rather than go out and party.

    The time of 28 seconds is ideal as its about the same time as a TV advert but its needs to tell the viewer what it is, why they need it and how they can get it.

    Not to my taste mate. Even the way the music 'cut off' sounded weird. Like a toy laser gun or something. Nope.

    The unborn babies have started crying loud... their would-be moms are going crazy -- with so much din and all the flashing. :(

    Your video is a malware for them.
