17. You need a Video Marketing Mission Statement w/ Jessie Ariss
Does your company have a YouTube page?
Odds are, probably.
But do you or anybody at your company actually know the PURPOSE behind that page? Behind creating videos?
Are you making videos because someone told you that video was in?
Or that “all the millennials” are using video?
Until you get a video marketing mission statement on paper, you’ll wander aimlessly.
Thankfully, Jessie Ariss was a guest on the Streamlined podcast recently and talked about
The 4 things to consider when implementing a video strategy. What a video marketing mission statement is, and why you MUST have one. The 3 questions to ask yourself when developing a video marketing mission statement.

Video is everywhere.
There’s a reason apps like Instagram and TikTok are lighting up the digital world right now.
Because people love video.
It’s personal, it’s customizable, it’s quick, and it’s impactful.
But if you’re not careful, you can get video all wrong. You can overthink it, over-analyze it, and overdo it.
Which is why having Tony Gnau on the Streamlined podcast recently was such an incredible moment.
As someone who makes his career helping people tell stories, and tell them with video, Tony had a lot to say about
Mistakes people make when moving to video What makes a great video Why you should treat video differently than the rest of your content.
15. Marketing the Future of the Packaging Industry w/ Ray Kondracki
Ray Kondracki is the President of the Kondracki Group a marketing and advertising company that specializes in helping companies in the packaging industry with their marketing and trade show materials.
Ray started out as a marketing manager in Chicago for several years before moving to Wisconsin which would eventually become the future home of the Kondracki Group.
Small to mid size manufacturers don’t have the resources internally to deal with a full-fledged marketing team so they outsource that work to Ray’s company. They help them with several areas of marketing, PR, content, and tradeshow readiness. They help them plan their show from top-to-bottom and even go so far as to set up the physical booth at the tradeshow.
Q4 (right now) is all about generating a plan and nurturing leads for 2020. Some clients slow down within a few months of tradeshows such as Packexpo (the predominant tradeshow for Ray’s clients. Other clients need print and banner ads to generate awareness, first. Whereas, other companies dive straight in to marketing and lead generation activities. Some clients need a brand awareness in a market, while others need as many leads and names as they can. Everything is customized to their individual client to help them excel during their trade shows.
Whether it’s PR, content, a tradeshow booth or a whitepaper the Kondracki Group believes in playing the long game to give clients what they want.
