Yesterday I was invited to the UK launch of a new personalised video platform, created by Dutch company Rednun.
Rednun claims that if you want the biggest impact possible for the maximum number of people, you can’t do it by producing just one video and uploading it on a shared video platform. You need to personally tailor each video for every individual viewer.
The user provides their personal information to a company, the company provides that database of customer information to a production company. The production company creates a video specifically for every customer, providing maximum relevance and complete personalisation.
Rednun claims the rewards are higher conversion rates, brand loyalty, visibility and engagement rates.
