Strengthen Your Company’s brand with Corporate Videos

Think about the last time you read a simple, yet memorable blog post. That probably takes a second. After you read it, did you share it? Now think about the last memorable video you watched. Probably a lot easier to recall. There’s a reason for that: video provides a lasting impression on visitors.  

Video combines the senses of sight and sound. We’re far more likely to connect with someone telling us a story than if we read about that story. We’re more likely to form a bond with someone when we can see the excitement on their face or hear the passion in their voice. We’re simply more likely to feel inspired ourselves. This ability to form an emotional connection puts video in the unique position for brands to leave meaningful impressions on potential customers, employees and investors – especially if they tell authentic stories that resonate with their audience.

If you use video to strengthen your company’s brand, quality matters. With social media being as popular as it is, the amount of advertising and marketing content that users see daily is overwhelming. This means it’s more important than ever to create collateral that connects with your audience. Quality videos combat short attention spans with compelling visuals, soundbites, and music. A well-executed video can easily convey more information in 30 seconds than a 500-word blog post.

But once you’ve produced your perfect brand story… how are people going to find about it? Videos make this easy on your audience because they’re so much easier to consume. Let’s face it, you’re far more likely to discover a story from a friend or colleague via video than a blog. Which are you more likely to share? This ability makes video the most popular way to advertise across devices. Newspaper, billboards, and radio are simply less effective and more difficult to track your ROI.

Because video is able to capture the attention of viewers far more effectively than written text, it creates a better means for getting your brand’s voice out there.  The internet allows you to reach a wider range of audiences, as well as the ability to target the right personas for your product. This optimized marketing generally leads to more qualified leads, which in turn helps boost sales and notoriety. It’s worth the investment.

Video also allows provides the widest canvass for crafting how you want your brand to be perceived. It enables you to capture your company’s essence with powerful visuals, a strong voiceover, or sharp motion graphics. This helps create an authentic, meaningful connection with viewers.

How is your audience influenced by this connection? Video helps companies move the bottom line for their business.  Traditional marketing doesn’t offer the ability to resonate with customers and potential employees. This leads to better hires, more donations, or higher comprehension rates.  A strong corporate video shows a commitment to a strong brand.

There are so many stories and opportunities waiting to be shared in business today. These opportunities open gates for creators and corporations alike to develop a genuine connection with visitors that translates to a lasting impression. Not only does video help market a brand, it allows the viewer to get a sense of company culture, to see the true goals and values of the company, and ultimately connect on a human level that other forms of communication simply do not provide. For these reasons, corporate video provides an excellent place to start if you’re looking to strengthen your company’s brand.
