Video content is exciting and engaging for your website visitors. Let’s break down some of the suggested video options from above and give you a little bit of guidance on each one.
Interviews are a great way to let your website visitors learn more about the staff they deal with on a regular basis. This type of video is inexpensive to produce and can even be recorded in house using nothing more than a mobile phone. The main benefit of this type of video is to connect with your website visitor and make them feel closer to your brand.
Testimonial videos are an amazing way to connect with new website visitors that have never purchased from your business before. Imagine your on a website for the first time you are looking at hiring that company or purchasing a product or service from them. Your scrolling through the site and you find testimonial videos from actual clients of the business expressing their positive thoughts on your services and products. Do you think this type of video would connect with that user and help to sell your brand? This type of video could also be produced in house on a mobile phone or your clients can easily record their own testimonials on their phones.
Product and service infomercials are going to allow your website visitors to learn more about your products and services. These types of videos are cost-effective and can really help to sell your business items. This type of video is particularly effective especially with explaining more complex products and services that your visitors may not fully understand.
Tutorials and training videos are a great way to make your products and services about your visitors and customers. Nothing engages a visitor more than teaching them how to do something that they otherwise would not be able to do. This type of video empowers it’s viewers and helps to position your brand as the expert in your field. These types of videos can be created with any video capable camera or screen recording software.
Introduction or explainer videos serve to introduce a product, service, page or post and also helps to explain various aspects of the surrounding content. Whilst the introduction videos can easily be created with a video-enabled device often an explainer video uses specialised software or sometimes the use of a third party animator or producer.
