Types of business videos to use in marketing Your business



There are many types of videos you can use in promoting your business

Let’s look at some video types that you can use across each of these stages!

Educational videos

<a href="https://youtube.com/v/gGysg55U9ok" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://youtube.com/v/gGysg55U9ok</a>

Providing education to address a problem/pain point for your target audience is a great way to get noticed. Start with a little keyword research to find high search volume keywords in your niche. There are a variety of content formats to help you create educational videos including live action videos, whiteboard videos and webinars.

Popular editing tool Grammarly creates short educational videos to educate and draw in their target audience.

The key to these type of videos is that they’re short yet very informative. Whether you are in the business of selling business tools or consumer products related to health and beauty, educational videos are a great way to start building a long-lasting relationship with your audience.

Businesses that are cause-related can use educational videos to explain their cause in an interesting way. Take a look at this thought-provoking example from Malezi Bora.



This video beautifully explains and educates people about social problems and influence them to take a step forward. If you are selling a product/service that solves persistent social problems, then such videos can do wonders for your business. These videos work well for non-profit organizations as well.

Educational video content is critical for spreading awareness about your products and services. You should regularly produce quality educational videos. The strategy will fetch you more attention for your brand and a growing subscriber base for your content. They are equally helpful in capturing and nurturing leads.

Entertainment videos

Online audiences love short, snackable content. With this format, you can create entertaining videos that make your audience laugh or get inspired. An understanding of your target audience will help you to create videos that they’ll enjoy watching - videos that will imprint your brand and keep them coming back for more. Starbucks created a charming animated video series called 1st and Main. The video series entertains the audience and showcases Starbucks as a ‘the third place’ between home and work.

Take a look at the first video from the series below!

<a href="https://youtube.com/v/9CB8zyiZttg" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://youtube.com/v/9CB8zyiZttg</a>

Videos like these work because they make your brand non-intrusive, and they let you have fun with your target audience. Whether you are a retail or an FMCG brand, this kind of content is a sure-fire way to strengthen brand rapport. Social media fans love videos like this, so if you’re considering video, this is a good start for your content marketing calendar. Entertainment videos are great for the attention stage of the buyer’s journey. Did the Starbucks video keep your attention? Case and point!

Explainer and demo videos

An essential part of marketing your products and services is to explain their unique value proposition.

91% of consumers have watched an explainer video to learn about a product or service. - Strategic

An explainer video is an animated video that illustrates the core features of your products and services in simple terms. It uses animated characters, text, graphics and a narrative to tell your product story. Just note: You must use a professional voiceover and music while creating an explainer video.

Explainer videos are extremely beneficial for startup companies and businesses selling complex technology products.

Such videos are helpful in the capture stage of the buyer’s journey. You can put up your explainer video on your landing page along with a relevant Call-to-Action, to collect some qualified leads for your business.

Take a look at this incredible example of an explainer video from Ninja Bag, a junk removal services company

Here’s an explainer video from Sendible, explaining the ins and outs of the social media management platform.

<a href="https://youtube.com/v/43nchbHvNBo" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://youtube.com/v/43nchbHvNBo</a>

The video above clearly highlights the unique value proposition of Sendible. It tells a story using an animated character to catch viewers' attention and make the video enjoyable and easy to digest.

Here is another similar example of a funny product video from a junk removal business called Ninja Bag that proves that you shouldn’t be afraid to use humor in a product video!

<a href="https://youtube.com/v/mNZf6RIKmCE" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://youtube.com/v/mNZf6RIKmCE</a>

These kinds of animated explainer videos work best for boring products and services (yes, we said it). If that’s you, your products can be necessary and relevant, but the use of humorous videos make your product story more intriguing and exciting! It gives the audience a little something to connect to.

Event videos

Promoting your events on social media is a great way to strengthen your relationship with your fans and followers.

Video of a live event increases brand favorability by 63%. - Twitter

You can get professional videographers to record corporate event videos and then post them up on your social pages. Live streaming on social media is a trend that’s proven to work and requires minimal resources. You can live stream short snippets of your business events as stories on Instagram or as live videos on Facebook and Twitter. Check out this video from Google from their Google Pixel 2 launch event.

<a href="https://youtube.com/v/_UnHKAtC3bg" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://youtube.com/v/_UnHKAtC3bg</a>

Event promotion videos are very helpful in nurturing your existing leads and building deeper relationships with them. They do this by creating hype around your brand and its newly launched products, and spreading the word! If you are a big brand with a large, geographically dispersed audience, then videos like these are a must!

Here is another example of a cost-effective event promotion video from CSCMP.

<a href="https://youtube.com/v/b_NM-puqU24" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://youtube.com/v/b_NM-puqU24</a>
Motion-graphic videos like these can be created very quickly. They come handy for promoting an upcoming or periodic corporate event.

Loyalty program vide.os work well in all types of video formats including animated, live action and motion graphics.

Such vid[eos are very effective in the growth phase of the buyer’s journey.

Take a look at this intriguing video from HYOTS.

 

The video shows a guy getting attracted to the HOYTS reward program. He's dreaming of availing the benefits from the reward program. Loyalty program promotions tend to work very well for restaurants, clothing brands and airlines.

 

‘Thank you’ videos
Thanking your customers is a great way to make them feel special.  These type of videos also work equally well in helping you to retain your existing clients and get more business from them. You can use any video format to thank your customers, but creating a very personal video would surely add more value.

Here is an example of a striking ‘Thank you’ video from Talbots, a US-based women’s fashion brand.



In this video, the whole executive team of Talbots comes together to thank their customers. The video gives the audience a sense of being a part of the Talbots community - of women who love to dress well. Videos like these help in bringing out your brand values and making your audience feel connected to those values. All types of B2B and B2C brands can make use of ‘Thank You’ videos for higher customer retention. Make sure you have a large customer base and you’ll definitely benefit from such videos.

The following table shows the effectiveness of each of the video types for different stages of the buyer’s journey and the channels you can use to promote them.


Conclusion
Every video type and format has its own advantages. You can choose a video type that works best for a campaign and an audience segment. The video format will depend on your campaign budget and overall business goals. Most video formats can be developed cost-effectively. The only exception is live action videos. You can use all types of videos but make sure you stick to one or two formats and that will help you to maintain visual consistency.



Every time new prospects visit your website or social pages, they are looking to validate the merit of your products and services.  Once they are convinced about the features and pricing, they are keen to get an unbiased opinion about your offerings.
