How could you use video to promote your brand and products?
  1. Quick product tutorials: create short videos on how to use your products. If you have a physical product, shoot videos on how to unpack, assemble, install and use the product. If you have a software product, record a short demo including the sign-up process
  2. Chat show format: you could record these with two people from your team or if you could convince one of your customers to be a volunteer. Use the question and answer format to talk about the use and benefits of your product and services.
  3. Customer testimonials: These could help establish trust with new prospects. Video testimonials from customers is the best advertisement for any brand. You could use these almost everywhere – on your website, social media pages, exhibitions, YouTube etc.
  4. Personal message from the Directors or key employees: these could be used to share important updates about the company or industry. For example, steps taken by the company to ensure safety of employees during the Covid-19 pandemic.
  5. Videos of company events or CSR activities: these let potential customers see the human story of a brand. Videos of celebrating festivals at work or organization of a charity event to help the community.
  6. Animated Explainer Videos: these have been quite popular in the last few years. There are bunch of online tools available or you could simply hire a freelancer to get these created.
