Use Video to Expand Your Reach and Boost Your Company’s Image
Promoting your business by video might seem like an exotic idea at first. However, it can be one of the most cost-effective ways of promoting your business. With video, you’ll be able to expand your business’s reach all around the world.
In fact, you can give your potential customers and clients a great initial image of your business by creating videos with high visual impact. A properly managed video campaign could end up being the best move you ever made for your company. That’s because people love them, and many find it easier to learn from images than from a written article.
However, it is not enough just to put together some beautiful images. You’ll need quality content as well. Here are some tips to help you build the perfect video marketing campaign.
Choose Your Main Idea
Whether you’re producing a single video or a series, choose a theme. Maybe you want to educate potential customers about your product. Or you could be offering training in how to operate something you sell.
Put together some tutorials for a service you offer so that people can more easily learn about what it is you do. A visual explanation works better for many people. It can be more interesting and easier to understand than a written tutorial.
In either case, invest in some video subtitling. Subtitles can make your video more accessible to more people. It can help your audience to better understand what you’re trying to get across.
As always, be clear about who is in your target audience and speak directly and authentically to them. The best videos out there are made by people who come across as caring and supportive. They make the viewer feel as if they’re speaking directly to them. That can’t be faked. So take some time. Do some mirror work ahead of time, lots of it, so you’ll have a better idea of how you’ll come across on the screen.
Finally, pay attention to the visual impact of the video itself, because that’s what people will remember the most.
Don’t Forget About Details
Think about the places where you will use your business video presentation. You might be attending a conference, or maybe you just plan to use your video in small meetings where you need to talk about yourself or your company.
On the other hand, consider using video in emails to potential customers. You can also embed videos on your website as a way of drawing traffic in.
Wherever you share it, be sure to produce your videos with a certain degree of professionalism so that your viewers will perceive your company in a better light.
Details matter, especially with videos. If you are not careful you can end up losing your audience quickly for something as simple as poor lighting or bad editing.
Track the Results
After you take your video live, you will want to find out how many people are watching it and how it’s being perceived. On YouTube, it’s pretty easy to do that.
So consider setting up a YouTube channel where you can post daily vlogs or other similar video promotion campaigns. Who knows? If you get good enough, one of your videos—or even a series of them—could go viral. And isn’t that what everyone wants? If that happens, not only will your business gain credibility, but your videos, too, will become a passive income stream.

If in the process your viewers ask for more of the same from you or even ask you to expand on your current video material, don’t hesitate to give them what they want.
So whether you embed a couple of training videos on your website or launch a full-scale YouTube campaign, consider using video to promote your business.
