Measuring success comes down to a simple question: is your video helping you reach your business goals? A successful video does not necessarily mean a video with a ton of views and a big budget. Did you make a sale? Did you gain a new client? Instead of focusing on views and likes as the measure of success, you should be measuring what goal your video achieved. 

“Your video can get a thousand plus views and do nothing to sell your product,” says CEO Uzoma Obasi. “If your goal is to sell a product, it didn’t actually do a good job…measuring successful video is about more than just the views.”

Of course getting views, going viral and gaining online attention is great for your business, but if you’re not turning those views into purchases or clients your content is not really working. Creating video content with your business goals in mind is essential to creating successful content.
