13 Feb Why Do You Need a Corporate Video
Corporate Videos are used to describe what your company does with powerful moving visuals, they can be both live action or animated. The more your customers know about your company the more they will trust your products and services. With videos being shared 1200% more times than text and imagery combined, a corporate video will put you ahead of businesses that are promoting their businesses with billboards, posters and blogs among others.
Let people know who you are
Corporate videos, unlike television or radio commercials, are not limited to 30 or 60 seconds. This means that you can include a lot of information about your Business, or split it into multiple parts describing different areas. While it is best practice to keep them under 5 minutes, that is more than enough time to get your customer to want to make a purchase or refer your business to friends or family. The subject matter is no limitation either, you can give your customers a guide on how to use your service or product, explain your businesses background, teach customers about your field etc.
Training customers and employees
You can save substantial amounts of money in the short and long term by creating a corporate video specifically for training. They are a lot more effective than a training manual and there is no need to pay for an instructor to come to your business every time there are new employees, this is because a video can provide them with a visual demonstration. A lesson can be recorded once and used repeatedly, thus there would be no need for you to pay for an instructor or ask one employee to take their time to teach another. Complex products and services can be taught by video as well, they are a lot more effective because they give the viewer a visual demonstration.
