7 Video Marketing Tips for 2020

1. Introduction Videos Make a Great First Impression

Create a solid foundation for your brand with your personality. Show and tell your story. Thirty seconds to one minute of video is worth a half a dozen pages of text. Quick, personalized videos are a great way to share a thought or idea with your audience. Personalized introduction videos on LinkedIn do exceptionally well with down to earth video messages.

2. Make Social Videos Interactive

AI and Chatbots engage in real-time with your prospects and customer base. One of the most effective (high ROI) techniques is utilizing the prospect’s profile info (name, location, etc.) to personalize a video or GIF animation in real-time. The more people live and work remotely, the more they reach out to interact with businesses and consultants online. Be the brand that’s interacting 24/7 where and when prospects are ready.

3. Captivate Attention with Animated Videos

You don’t have to be a budding Disney animator to deliver your message in 2020 and beyond. There are many cloud-based animation video services available to illustrate your ideas. Low-cost animated videos help you mix up your visual media style. Quick animated videos help stay on target for weekly video marketing goals.

4. Maximize ROI with Explainer Videos

When you are marketing a simple product or a complex piece of software, an explainer video can do a better job of telling your story. Explainer videos surpass time on page of blog posts and traditional webpages in terms of user engagement.

The most critical elements of explainer videos are voice quality and type font. The voice must be engaging with high-quality audio recording. And the font must be easy to read since many people watch your videos without the audio turned on.

5. Give a Sneak Peak with Behind the Scenes Videos

Peel back the curtain to attract more business opportunities. Behind the scenes, videos build trust and reputation by giving viewers an exclusive tour of your business. Who doesn’t want to feel special and included? Use this style of business video to show that you and your business value transparency.

6. Brilliant Infographic Videos

Capitalize with facts and data that showcase your solutions. Demonstrating that you understand your customer’s problems with infographic videos is undeniably good for new business.

Numbers, graphs, and infographics speak loud and clear very quickly. Be careful, though. Video statistics can get incredibly dull, really fast. Hook the viewer in the first 3-7 seconds.

7. Brand Story Videos

Build brand loyalty with a story video. Proper use of a story format helps people remember your brand longer.

The results are even better when your business mission and values are aligned.

Write your customer’s and prospects’ aspirations and inner/outter philosophy into the story as the hero. Then show how your business is the guide to help them get there.
