Promotional videos are not only the tools for engagement. They can also educate and entertain potential or existing customers, telling a story to make them want to come to your business. And if you know how to make an engaging promo video, your chances of success will increase exponentially.
If you don’t know what type of story to tell or you don’t have the expertise on how to present your promotional video in the best way, do not fret! Here, I will share a few ideas with you on Promotional videos that may help inspire you to create your own videos to reach your target market.
Business Introduction…for home page of your website
The first in our marketing promo video ideas list is to make a business intro promo video. Your brand is special. Your business has a story. Share that story with your audience! You may think they know everything about you, but many are craving for more information about how you started your company, who or what inspired you, and what goals you have for the future. A great way to share this information is by creating an introduction video on your homepage or “About” page on your website.
New Product or Service Introduction
When you release a new product, it’s important to make people know about it! Creating promotional videos is the best way to show your reliable and trendy products. These videos can also highlight a product’s unique and most useable features. A lot of well-known brands take advantage of video marketing for this purpose. Product videos are focused totally on the product. Actually, a product promo video shows how the product solves their problem and how it will be beneficial to the clients. Product promotional videos give an insight into the standout characteristics of the product that make it different and spread brand awareness.
TRAINING VIDEOS FOR YOUR EMPLOYEES/ON BOARDING VIDEOS
The use of video to train employees on the products/services that they will be selling, teaching the requirements of HR in your company, OR welcoming new recruits/employees and training them without using the resources of another employee, will save your company, time, money, and is the most efficient use of everyone’s time.
The next one up in our list of promo video ideas is an animation video. Animated videos are not only informative, but also entertaining! Their main goal is to get the point across about your products in a lighthearted way.
Practically any product can be improved with animated elements because of their ability to liven up even the most mundane videos. Using animation can make a great promo video.
Audiences, including your target market, are not threatened by a cartoonish character and will judge them less than a human spokesperson. Think of adding animation to your video marketing arsenal.
One aspect of animation is to have an animated “cartoon” version (AVATAR) created of YOU. Especially IF you are afraid of the camera, this Mini-You will be able to take the stress and worry away from you while still delivering your message in an engaging and likeable way.
If you have any customer testimonial videos, it’s important that they are publicized. Potential consumers might be hesitant about ordering products or services from your company, so giving them a sneak peek into others’ experiences is an excellent way to guarantee they feel confident and secure when deciding to purchase your products. Customer testimonials are a great way to show the effectiveness of your product by offering a third party review of their personal experience.
Customer testimonial videos are an excellent way to show current and potential customers how your products have helped others. They’re also the perfect way to bring the customer-brand relationship full circle by using people who are already loyal to your brand.
Many business owners fear that they are bothering their clients by asking for a video testimonial. Nothing could be further from the truth. Satisfied clients are more than happy to share their experiences with your service/product. Just ask and make sure the customer shares in their own words.
Event promo videos
