Empowering you to learn about the different elements across video genres can change the course of your marketing strategy - helping you make cost-effective decisions that benefit your growth and your bottom line.


1. Promotional Video

A promotional video should be a priority for any small business.

This is the first impression you will make and probably the one that will be remembered by any potential customers.

Boosting brand awareness is integral to your continued growth and success, and a promotional video can do a lot of the legwork for you.

By establishing who you are, what you can offer, and showcasing your brand personality to customers, a promotional video is a perfect introduction.

Appeal to viewer’s emotions, illustrate your unique sales points, and how you offer what others can't. 

This type of video won't need to break the bank but can be one of the most effective tools in a marketing manager's arsenal.  If you can only budget for one video, you can't go wrong with a promo.



2. Testimonial Video

Nothing communicates your strengths like a satisfied client.

One of the oldest marketing methods is word of mouth and it is still one of the most effective ways to land new customers. 


“The best advertising is done by satisfied customers.”

― Philip Kotler


By bringing a previous or current customer on board to record a testimonial video, you can spread the word about your brand, by simply showcasing their experience.

A testimonial video will bring together the best of your business from a customer's point of view. This organic feedback is a highly effective way to influence potential clients.
