VIDEO CONTENT CREATION
Whether the goal is to entertain, inform, educate, explain, or provide a ‘behind the scenes’ look, all videos should be created with a clear purpose. Not sure where to start? We can help.
Incorporate Video into Your Marketing Strategy
Who will be watching your video? Why would someone want to watch your video? What kind of results or outcomes are you projecting — are you looking to increase sales, build brand recognition, share a success story, or all of the above?
These are the questions you should ask yourself before coming up with content for your video. Knowing your buyer personas and understanding how they operate will provide insights on how to structure your video, where to post it, and how to get the most mileage out of it.
- Your company has a story to tell, but no one wants to read it.

How to Use Video in Modern Marketing
Studies from HubSpot Research show that more than 50% of consumers want to see videos from brands; that’s more than any other type of content. Not to mention, 90% of customers say videos help them make buying decisions. When you look at what consumers want and expect from businesses, you discover just how much video has impacted and transformed modern marketing.
Implementing video into your marketing strategy is effective, but it requires a solid plan, a systematic process of shooting and editing each video, and a way to track video statistics and ROI.
From a social video with a goal of raising awareness to instructional videos provided to customers after a purchase, video can be a versatile tool for reaching buyers at all stages of the buyer’s journey.
What Kind of Video Would Work for You?
There are many different types of videos that can be incorporated into your marketing strategy. Choosing the right type starts with establishing your goals and identifying your audience. Here are some successful video styles to get you started.
A testimonial video is useful for telling a story. These can be done in an interview-style or voice-over format. This style of video is very effective for spotlighting the benefits of your products and services.
An instructional video walks customers through successful implementation and use of your products and services.
A promotional video showcases your products or services in action. These videos are great for explaining how your company can improve your clients’ world.
A growth story video can add a personal touch to your brand by highlighting how your business grew to where it is today.
Social videos range from live videos to pre-recorded promotional videos posted — both can showcase your company, products, or services.
A services video is an overview of all that your company has to offer potential clients.
A graphics interchange format (GIF) video is short-form content that plays on a loop. These short snippet videos can show products and services in action and are ideal for blog posts, product pages, and services pages.
Identify Your Goals then Build Your Strategy
Planning a successful video starts by pinpointing the issue or need the video will solve or address. This will help you identify the purpose of the video and what you want to accomplish with it.
It's important to know your target audience, how they think, and what drives them to make decisions. To uncover this, it’s crucial to look at what your competitors are doing and what's happening in the industry, then ask customers directly what they want to see.
Knowing your goals and the purpose of your video, our team will create a storyboard, script, and other strategic aspects before shooting. Once the filming is complete, we'll work with you to refine the style and flow, ensure your branding is preserved and promoted, and figure out where the video will live so that it will make maximum impact.
