CASE STUDY : VINAMILK – MASTER OF MARKETING VIDEO.
VINAMILK is a leading nutrition group in Vietnam reaching more than 31 countries and generating over USD 1,5 billion/year in revenue.
Video had been part of Vinamilk’s marketing strategy in the past, but like most brands in Vietnam, the dairy manufacturer had primarily focused its advertising offline. However, given that there are 55 million internet users nationwide — and that four of every five moms watch online videos at least once a week — Vinamilk realized that it could reach this highly-engaged audience with online video. So, Vinamilk created a strategy that would increase engagement and help drive brand awareness among Vietnamese women, especially moms.
For online videos of consumer goods, Vietnamese mothers are especially attracted by family-related content including cartoons, videos of food and drink. However, family-focused content is not much exploited in Vietnam. However, family-focused content wasn’t something the country actively produced. This gave Vinamilk an opportunity to build its video strategy around that missing content.
Vinamilk decided to develop attractive, family-oriented video content using 3H strategy – “Hero, Hub, Help” – a new approach.
- Hero: Video content format is long, directing consumers attention by capturing trend content
To better interact online with Vietnamese women, Vinamilk prioritizes investment and creates videos that capture music trends and invite famous people on Youtube like actors Huynh Lap and Thu Trang, Lam Vy Da,… To ensure growth and visibility at the beginning, each piece of content (hero) is invested to run Youtube mastheads and TrueView video ads.
