It’s All in the Data with Steve Garvey

Joining me this week is Steve Garvey, CEO of Moving Image, a new breed of research agency blending data and creativity to get business results from video. He is also a Director of We Fight Fraud, which makes high-quality original film to combat financial crime.

Steve has had over 30 years of experience in film and video as an agency head, producer and in-house comms director. In other words, he knows what he’s talking about!

In this episode, we discuss all things data, and why you should never underestimate the importance of understanding and using data to make decisions about your marketing and video content strategy. Steve shares some key insights from his own research about video effectiveness, and gives us some real value which you can start thinking about today.

Steve’s company has a unique tool for measuring video content. It is call ‘The Benchmark’. It tracks 100 brands on LinkedIn and Instagram and analyse every post and every video. That's over 1,000 videos a month.

The Benchmark reveals patterns, trends and strategies that work and those that don't. And in this episode, we look at the platform and some of the surprising results it reveals. You can watch this part of the podcast on YouTube. https://youtu.be/NlzFscyXsZo
