Video is one of the best ways to build your brand. Through it, you can demonstrate visually, not just with words, what your brand is all about. This includes providing your viewers with insight into what makes your business unique, what your products are, and what your company stands for. Yet, to do this, you need to develop a video that’s authentic and easy to understand. Here are some ways to do that.
Focus on What the Customer Wants
To sell your product or service, your video must communicate the message your customer needs. That is, customers want to learn specific things about a company before they decide to work with you. It can be easier to give them this than you think. You can use the following components in your video to do that:
- Incorporate product demonstrations to showcase how a product works – solving the problem the customer has within that video.
- Build on customer testimonials. There is no better way to convince someone to make a purchase than to show them what others did and received.
- Provide clear information about what the product or service is. Sometimes names and company brands don’t provide enough of a tool to demonstrate this.
Show Them the People
Today, many consumers are interested in learning what a company can offer to them, but they also want to know more about “who” is in that company. They want to know what your business is and what it offers, yet putting a human face to the brand is also important. Branded films and live videos can help you to do this. Your goal here is to simply let the audience see the personality, character, and just the people behind the brand.
Use Video Content Consistently
Seeing a video about a company one time does not really put that brand into the consumer’s mind for years to come. Rather, it’s important to be consistent. Use video weekly within your social media content. You can also easily use video on a blog, do a live stream on social media, or do a question and answer session on Twitter. The key here is to use it as a constant way to remind your audience of who your company is.
When you do this, you are building up your brand. You are communicating the message of what your company is and what you have to offer to that customer watching it.
