    That is a great point regarding engagement patterns.

    It depends on if you want to use Youtube as a general repository, or if your business goal includes making Youtube a primary channel to connect with your dealership -- and ads run on Youtube should be different. Videos for social platforms should vary, but I think you'll find that the data will give you the feedback you need to understand what approaches work best on each platform.

    Again, it's always best to match your efforts to search intent, especially with such an investment as video production, if you're looking to acquire more qualified traffic and leads for your sales teams.

    In each video there was an effort to get the audience to stay. If you watch you will see the different techniques that were used in the first 20 seconds. Consider that you can also re-target people that watch specific videos. They may decide to watch more on the 2nd impression.

    I just tell myself Facebook is just TV with metrics and audience control. The best TV ads are ones that are funny, colorful and focus on emotion vs logic.

    Killer for all types of content.

    https://www.skyword.com/skyword-video/
    Quality video production can be difficult and expensive, but for today’s brand storyteller, video is no longer optional. By 2021, video will make up 82 percent of all consumer Internet traffic. In 2015 alone, audiences spent an average 40 hours/week watching video in front of screens of all sizes. In 2016, video accounted for 73 percent of traffic. Today, a video on your landing page means visitors engage more and stay longer.

    We've seen "360" and web enabled (non headset) virtual reality video even more effective in terms of completion rate and viewing time (about 2.5 minutes with immersive content vs 28 seconds on a standard video).

    One simple way to identify whether your video content is working is to track if someone hit "play" and then submitted an inquiry or called. Most dealers will only track the plays and % watched which ultimately fails to identify whether you captured a local buyer.
