As a small business owner who does at least some of your marketing and networking online, you may already be familiar with the current trends in online video technology. You might find these videos on social networking sights, online community forums, and the on the websites of individual businesses. Chances are you have considered creating a video for your own business. This article will help you lay out the groundwork for creating a successful video that not only draws attention to your business, but also reaches out to your clients and associates.
For starters, your video should include some customer testimonials. These will help your potential clients to see your business through the eyes of someone who is already familiar with the goods and services you offer. An effective customer testimonial will take the viewer through the most important steps of interacting with your company and highlight all of the benefits of working with your business. The customers you choose for your video should be good speakers who have onscreen personalities that seem trustworthy and convincing. While you won’t need to script everything to say, it is probably a god idea to give them some key concepts to follow.
It’s always a good idea for the owner of the business to get on camera as well. If you’re an introverted type, or you never liked getting up in front of people, don’t worry. You are only being filmed. You will only be speaking in front of the cameraman. It’s important that the business owner is on the video because it will give your business a human face. Clients will want to see that there is one person who is responsible for your business and who oversee a majority of the operations.
Consider making part of your online video a collage. A collage is a series of images sequenced together to create a particular feeling or message. This will give your video a creative edge and will illustrate your message in new and original ways. If you want to show the feeling of freedom that your service provides its customers, then show a bird soaring through the sky. If you want your clients to understand that your goods will help them to relax, then show some images of the beach or a peaceful sunset. No matter what style you choose, your business’s online image is sure to improve once you begin to incorporate video.
