CREATING GREAT VIDEO

CREATING GREAT VIDEO


We are often asked what the difference is between good video practice and great video practice?. Our answer is that clients that create great video with us are the ones who really plan ahead and who are open to new ways of telling their story, so that customers have an emotional engagement with their video. Here are three popular ways of how to engage customers with video.

1 USING VIDEO FOR TESTIMONIALS

Your business can have copy on your site saying how wonderful it is, but our brains are programmed to look at faces to gather information and determine credibility. While written testimonials are helpful, nothing boosts conversions better than real life testimonials from your happy clients. Nearly 60% of B2B marketers rate video as the most effective content marketing tactic so ask your clients if they would appear on camera. We are very experienced with contributors, have mobile autocues to make things easy and we promise we even make it fun!

2 SHOWCASE A SHORT VALUE PROPOSITION VIDEO FOR YOUR SITE

An obvious starter for clients new to video is to create a short film on your home page to explain your promise to potential customers. As humans we are intrigued by live action videos featuring people so feature yourself not an animation film or voice over. We script messages to be short and sweet but remember this video needs to be well thought out and give a cogent strong message that sums up your business. Use this video to nail down the core essence of your business message and when you get it right it will pay off big time. Customers report to us they really appreciate being able to quickly understand the benefits of what a company is offering in a snappy video. It is worth nothing that using a video on your landing page can increase conversion by 80%.

3 USE SNACK VIDEOS

Whenever we film a video we always make sure we shoot some extra footage for clients to create what we call snack videos. These videos are around 15 seconds for social media usage and 6 seconds for Vine. We like to make sure our clients have a variety of video – a typical package is a 3 minute video for the website home page, a couple of snack videos to use on twitter, face book or LinkedIn to drive traffic to the site and the 6 second vine short to complete a 360 degree video use package. In a world where 70% of B2B content marketers use video we make sure clients have all the lengths of video they need to keep ahead.
