The Power of Compelling Online Video Content

Everybody loves online video. And as audiences get more excited to watch videos, they also get more excited to share those videos with friends and colleagues via social media and other online channels. This is great news for brands keen to reach out and connect with their customers in innovative, engaging and entertaining ways.

When executed well, video can compel your target audience to act, by converting people into viewers, buyers, and brand evangelists. With this in mind, it’s an exciting opportunity to breathe new life into what was once considered the content format most famous for being boring – the corporate video.

Meet the new, exciting breed of corporate video.

Of all the most effective methods used by B2B marketers, video is the big winner; with a massive 92%* of B2B marketers now using video to engage with their target audience.

Brands now understand that (in most cases) the CEO staring straight to camera from behind an enormous desk only really works for fictional TV presidents. For everybody else, it takes a little more thought and planning.

With the use of innovative story telling techniques, and emotive tools like music, clever dialogue, and a strong narrative – a great corporate video can now present a truly compelling brand story to the world. People connect with brands, based on what they stand for, and the new corporate video is the communication tool to make that human connection happen.
