5 Ways Businesses Should Be Using Video



In a previous post we dove it whyVideo has fast become a dominating tool used within Content Marketing” and in this post we are share some ideas of how.


We believe we will be safe in saying that most Marketers agree that Video drives one of the highest returns on investments. In its’ very nature Video Content is engaging, however before you get your first viewer there are many potential hurdles to overcome.


What should you consider?


The Audience – Is the video useful for them? Is there a product or service that you offer that is hard to sum it in words? Why not give your audience a video example.


Authenticity – Unless you are making an advert, don’t make your video a Sales Pitch. Instead make it an opportunity for your audience to get an insider view of your team. This personal approach is a great way to build trust.


Know where your limits lie – Would you hire your best friend to get you out of going to jail? In most cases, Probably not. So why would you trust someone with little experience with your brand. To make video content, you need to get the right team on board to make your visions a reality. Producing poor quality content may do more harm than good for your brand.
