What’s a tag?

Pawpro posts often mention tags.  A tag can take various forms, but essentially it’s a very quick video segment that can be used over a period of time at the start or end of a video profile, advertisement, or marketing presentation.  Think of it as a label in a shirt or a pair of pants, and every pair of pants you sell has your label sewn on.  Plain and simple a tag serves to help brand a service, an individual or business by making it familiar and giving the consumer something to remember.  It may be visually, verbally or musically memorable.

As an example, a tag can be as simple as a real estate agent saying, “I’m Bob Jones with ABC Realty and please give me a call if I can help you with your home purchase.” and this little segment is attached to every video home tour that Bob puts on the Web.  It makes Bob familiar to anyone who sees one of his video listings, they see his brokerage logo and it shows his contact information.  Bob’s not a stranger anymore, and he’s not just a name, phone number or still photograph on a Web page.

For a retail business, a tag may take the form of a memorable tag-line spoken over a shot of a storefront.  Or, maybe it’s just your logo animated with a tag-line.  It can be as simple as an on-camera thank you with telltale noise or jingle .  Pawpro can help you with ideas that fit your needs.

The most important element of a tag is its length.  Keep it short.  Under 10 seconds is my rule, and preferably under 5 seconds is best.
