Product video production.
You’ve made it this far. You now believe in the value of videos and how it is the dominant medium for content consumption, but on a deeper level how do product videos have the ability to capture these results for your brand/company? It’s safe to say that you need more than just consistent lighting in your videos. So how are compelling videos created?
Product videos engage a target audience because they tell a story. It provides context, shows your product in use and tells your customer exactly why they can’t resist. It’s also a way to reiterate your core values and brand spirit. You can do so much more than show your product at different angles and add on some background music.
Keeping it short.
Short-form video is taking over the internet. So, we’ll keep this short. Product demo video? How-to videos? No problem. It’s a good job videos can be perfectly synced to be effective within 30 seconds. While it can be tricky to distil a message down, show a product’s key features, add a call to action, and pull at heartstrings, the right video experts (wink wink) can make it a cinch to do.
Making it relatable.
Another one for Team Product Video. You want your customers drawn in? Well, you’re in the perfect place as product videos are not only visually enticing, they can also be relatable. This is the key to what inspires viewers. If you want to showcase important features on your superhuman software, offer the perfect solution for wrinkle-free skin, display the complex inner workings of your latest spaceship or create a talking head interview about your groovy new sock line, it’s all good. Whatever it is, no matter how complex – product videos have the incredible power to create a great first impression. All while being human and honest.
Potential customers are literally on the prowl for good deals or opportunities. Make it easy for them with a video. After all, 73% more visitors who watch a product video will make a purchase.
