The next step is to outline your video production plan, as well as your video marketing plan. How often will you create/promote new videos?
The most important thing will be to remain realistic and to establish cadence that makes sense for your organization. Maybe it’s once a month – maybe it’s once every 2 months – as long as it makes sense for you.
A great way to get started on your video production plan(besides contacting your video production partner) is to think about all of the materials and steps it’ll take to create your video. Will you need to schedule a production? Actors? Filming equipment? Or is this an animated video that requires a motionographer? Speaking of video types – you should consider what kind of video makes the most sense. Here are some examples of video types that work well for financial services:
- About Us – About Us videos can tell your customer a lot about your history, your business functions, and your values. Because trust is a huge part of a relationship between financial service and customer, providing this insight is extremely important.
- Explainer – There are a lot of complexities when it comes to offerings from a financial institution. Sharing this information in a clear, easily digestible format is a great way to engage your customers and ensure that they understand how your services help them achieve their goals.
- Testimonial – Like we said, trust is a huge part of the relationship between financial service and customer. Hearing from someone who’s already worked with you is a great way to build that trust.
It’s important to detail the necessary elements to create your video ahead of time to understand the timeline and budget of your project. You may also want to consider hiring a video production agency to help you in the process. Sometimes, it’s better to spend money on a partner who can provide not only a high-quality final product, but help you determine your strategy and distribution as well.

Something to help you lay out your video marketing plan in terms of frequency is to plot your potential videos on a calendar, so you’re aware of what needs to be created and when it needs to be distributed. To determine how many videos, how often, and what topics you’ll want to focus on, ask your customers! Gathering information through surveys is an easy way to capture data about your audience to help figure out your video strategy.
