Brands need a video marketing strategy — this idea isn't new. What has changed is how important video has become on every platform and channel.
Video is no longer just one piece of your overall marketing, creative, or events plan. It's central to your outreach and campaign efforts … especially your virtual and hybrid strategy and your social media outreach..
If you aren't creating video, you're likely falling behind. But don't fret. For most videos, the more simple and raw it is, the more authentic the content seems … and that's what really matters to your audience.
Whether you're using it for marketing, creative, or events, video offers a ton of flexibility -- and depending on your brand's needs, you can (and should) use that creative space to incorporate it as you see fit. This might mean starting with just a focus on video for social, or case studies, or how-to videos for blog posts.
At its core, video is an engaging, modern creative strategy that introduces video content as a format for telling stories, delivering business messages, engaging and educating your audience, and so much more. No matter what the format, length, or style of the video may be, it’s considered video marketing if the end goal is to get your brand, product, mission, or service in front of a desired audience through the use of video.
Websites with video content are 53 times more likely to rank on the first page of Google’s search results.
While relevant text posts and images on your site can help give you a boost in the search rankings, different types of website videos give you an extra edge when it comes to making your brand stand out online.
- Increase organic traffic to your website
- Build authority in your industry
- Give great value first
SEO aside, there's no question that video is a channel worth investing in to achieve business growth. However, we know there are a lot of questions around how to actually get started -- like what equipment you'll need, where you'll find talent, and how the heck you'll figure out how to write a video script.

Also known as conversion videos, overview videos, and homepage videos, explainer videos are videos meant to convey information to your target audience about your company, service, or product. As the name implies, it is explaining. It must deliver a clear message to your intended audience. After watching the explainer video, individuals should have a clear grasp of what you are actually trying to do for them.

These four components lead your explainer video to be compelling and credible. Research has shown that this is a recipe for success that can drive further customer growth.

We’re product geeks who drool over new technology and ooh over the softness and shiny of CPG. So creating promotional marketing videos that are fun, informative, and innovative is one of the best parts of our job.
The best product videos are the ones we collaborate and brainstorm with you to come up with original ideas that can make your product stand out. When we are developing our concept ideas, we take into account your company’s core values, mission statement, and testimonials we’ve already heard. We want the concept to truly reflect the essence of your company. We have found that the most successful corporate videos are often the ones that are the most authentic and personal.
