The Importance of a Branding Video
The Business of a Branding Video
What does branding mean to you when you think of a company? What stands out and makes you remember that particular business for years to come? Is it a flashy logo, a celebrity spokesperson or news of the company’s remarkable philanthropy or venerable history? All of these elements certainly add to branding, but it all really comes down to the narrative, the story that defines the company. And that’s where personality comes in, especially when it comes to your web presence. Businesses need a personality so that the online consumer visiting your website takes away a confident and a connected feeling about your company, your product and the team that makes it all happen. You want to paint the picture of your business’s culture so that those visiting your site will build a familiarity, a trust and eventually a loyalty towards your product.
A Brand Video Can Make This Happen
A branding video is a solid marketing tool that puts a face to a name while giving your product authenticity. Who better to share the philosophy of the company than the owner? Who can describe the product more eloquently than the one who invented it? Who can endorse the company more effectively that the happy customer? Remember people like buying from people. And a branding video on the home page of a website can bring those who stand behind the product come alive and become real. Confidence is instilled through the workings of video which encourages the consumer to buy or utilize the company’s product.
Video Reaches More Consumers
No one wants to build a web site that no one ever sees. Yet no matter how informative your site may be you need to have some knowledge in social media. People love to share videos, and if your video is relevant to your audience, it will more than likely be shared. Over a short time your message will be shared with hundreds, maybe thousands of potential customers. This is called effective messaging.
Google is Your Friend
And Google loves video. Why? According to the website Business2Business, “Google is designed to get the most relevant information to the user and the more informative Google deems the information or content, the more likely it is going to put it further up the user’s search result.” Let’s face it, you want to be on the first page on a Google search and the higher the positioning, the better. Finally Google owns YouTube. What this means is the that Google favors video over text. Just this information alone means using a brand video for your site is a no brainer.
