Cutting corners has never been the way to make a positive lasting impression. As a corporate entity or even a startup, your first impression can make or break you. A corporate video is an impressionable tool, the wave of the future, and not just because 60% of visitors prefer to watch a video about a company vs. reading the information, or because of the increase of online purchasing, or because of the increase of remote working and learning, but because video content can increase revenue growth by as much as 49%. It’s time for you to learn more about corporate video production, and decide whether to add it to your marketing strategy.
What Is A Corporate Video
A corporate video is a much easier way to influence, get people engaged, and entertain. Whether customers or personnel, corporate video can be a way to introduce a product, train new employees, promote a service, or to keep your audience informed. Corporate videos can include voiceovers, music, motion graphics and animation, or talent to get your desired message across.
Types of Corporate Videos
Pending the purpose of your corporate video, there are several types to select from to ensure an effective campaign or informative strategy.
1. Founder Video
Tell the story of your founder(s). Consumers and staff alike want to connect and know who you are. Your why, your accomplishments and aspirations. This creates a bond and a relatable way to generate a following.
2. Testimonial Video
Testimonial videos are essential in capturing new customers or even new employees. People want to hear what others have to say before making a decision.
Hand pick the best customers or staff that can speak honestly and happily about your product, service or company. Create a questionnaire, or survey to help you select who would be the best to represent the message you want to present.
3. Recruitment Video
Similar to a testimonial video, sharing the opinions and feedback from current staff is an added plus to generate interest for prospective employees. Use a recruitment video as an opportunity to share your company culture, values and environment you create for your employees. This has the potential to woo prospective employees to choose you over other employers.
4. Training Video
Now that the perfect candidates have said yes to working for your company, it is key to keep them by educating them on your company, your expectations and the role in which they play in achieving company goals. Because of the consistency and flexibility of training videos, companies have seen an increase in productivity, by 65% if you include visuals.
5. Promotional Video
Promotional videos are a great way to communicate a product or service launch in an appealing and intriguing way. Add your promo video to an email, landing page, or website homepage. Videos are visually effective and are much more memorable than simply reading text on a page.
6. How-To Video
Do you have a complex message or step-by-step process that needs to be broken down into easily digestible content? Create a how-to-video that details the complexities and minimizes any potential confusion for your audience.
7. Social Media Video
We couldn’t leave social media out of the video equation. With an array of platforms to select from and channels of distribution (feed, stories, reels), as you create any of the above video options, think about including shorter videos that can effortlessly be added to your social media. If you are looking for tips to create the perfect social media video there are tips that can help you in planning.
Let’s be real, there is nothing comparable to video content, and the increase of conversions and potential for additional revenue is more than enough of a reason to add a variety of corporate videos to your company repertoire.
