Top 5 types of video for any SMB
The 5 most popular video types for SMBs include:
- Product videos
- Social videos
- Testimonial videos
- Promotional videos
- Video interviews
Product videos for SMBs
Product videos are a great way to show off your products, from all different angles. This can include footage of your product in use, or showing off a range of product features. These are especially effective for SMB’s, as your potential customers and clients can be nervous about taking a risk with a smaller company. Effective video content, showing off the product, can easily help to build trust, and ultimately increase sales and sign ups.
Social videos for SMBs
If you want to reach a wider audience, you need to create targeted video content designed to meet them where they are. And that is generally social media. The social media platform you target should be chosen depending on the age and demographics of your target audience. For a SMB, social video helps to improve company branding, and company recognition, and encourages people to start talking about your brand.
Testimonial videos for SMBs
While reading reviews about your company can help to build trust, seeing this in video form is so much more convincing. And if you want new customers to trust your company,and buy your products or use your services, you need to convince them that you are reliable, professional and high quality. Testimonial videos can do just this.
Promotional videos for SMBs
Promotional videos are video advertisements or pieces of marketing that are produced to show off your latest product or service, and even to offer a deal for your audience. These can generate a lot of interest around your products and services, and be very effective for increasing sales and sign ups, especially from new customers.
Video interviews for SMBs
Finally, your potential customers and clients want to know about your company, and the people behind it. Video interviews can be the perfect way to introduce yourself to your audience, and start to build a good consumer relationship.
