Campaign Crash Course: Creating compelling videos for Gen Z

Learn how to make compelling videos for a demographic that requires strong content and relatability.

Welcome back to Campaign Asia-Pacific's Crash Course learning series, in which you will learn valuable lessons and practical business tips on trending and essential topics from industry experts in just five minutes. Think of it as a mini mini MBA, if you will.

Lessons will cover the breadth of the marcomms industry, including technology, creative, media, strategy, leadership, diversity and inclusion and more. We'll start off by introducing you to larger topics and delve deeper into specific elements in the future. This series is designed to be useful to C-suite executives as well as those just starting out in their careers.

The lesson

The 23rd lesson in the Crash Course series will cover making eye-catching videos for Gen Z, the generation born between 1995 and 2010. Making content that this demographic wants to watch calls for strong messaging and relatability.

In this lesson you will learn about the social video marketing funnel. This video also discusses how content for Gen Z needs to evolve across five categories: 

  • Short form clips to build awareness 
  • Long-form to drive consideration 
  • Livestreams to push conversions 
  • Private communities to cement loyalty 
  • Referrals, bundling and early access to build advocacy
