Looking for affordable, scalable ways to increase awareness and highlight your brand, products, or services? Video allows you to showcase your business in engaging, memorable ways that resonate across digital platforms.
While live-action video requires greater investment, you can realize tremendous value from more accessible formats like the following:
1. Product Demonstration Videos
Nothing shows what your product can do quite like seeing it in action.
Product demo videos showcase key features and workflows, allowing viewers to envision using your product themselves. Avoid boring technical spec recitals. Show rather than only tell.
Keep demos concise at 1-3 minutes. Focus on the most important capabilities and benefits to your target customer.
Effective for: Software, apps, equipment, tools, any product-based business
Effective for: Any brand type seeking to connect with customers
Example: The Making of Oppenheimer
7. Social Media Videos
Develop a library of bite-sized videos tailored specifically to platforms like Instagram, TikTok, YouTube Shorts, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
Adapt assets into square and vertical formats. Add graphics and captions. Go for humor, quick tips, engaging visuals, and behind-the-scenes moments tailored to each platform
Consistent social video builds brand familiarity and expands reach. Promote videos through ads to reach wider audiences.
Effective for: Any brand active on social media
Example: Dove Reverse Selfie
8. Thought Leadership Videos
Position executives and experts in your field as industry thought leaders by recording educational videos, presentations, conference talks, and interviews.
Upload natively to sites like LinkedIn, Twitter, Medium, and your own blog. Share expertise through how-to tips, insider perspectives, trend analysis, and forecasting.
Effective for: B2B companies and agencies wanting to build brand credibility
Example: Mark Ebbens from Philips
9. Product Launch Videos
Introducing something new? Generate buzz by releasing short teaser videos building anticipation, announcing new features, and unveiling your latest offering.
Send to email subscribers, promote on social media, and run as online ads. Generate excitement and early visibility.
Follow up with launch day press release videos and more in-depth product demos and explainer content.
Effective for: Any company releasing new products or business ventures
Example: MBO Product Launch
10. Event Videos
Holding an event? Compile highlights, testimonials, and footage from the experience into promotional event recap videos
Short social media versions make attendees feel special. Longer cuts act as FOMO for those who missed it and build anticipation for the next event.
Repackage programming like keynotes and workshops into educational thought leadership content.
Effective for: Agencies, brands, and businesses hosting in-person/virtual events
Example: TNW Conference
The options are nearly endless for showcasing your business through engaging, cost-effective videos. Avoid overthinking production needs. For most formats, basic equipment and effort are all that’s required to realize results from video.
