Autoplay is a clever concept, attempting to draw the viewer in and grab his or her attention without requiring user initiation of the video. However, although it may be a useful tool for advertising videos, such as those that often appear before popular content on YouTube, for example, autoplay may not be such a great idea when you’re designing the homepage of your business website.

Here at AV3, we know that your promotional videos can take your business to a whole new level of success, and this is why it’s really important to consider your options and get your video marketing right.

Corporate Video Production: Consider Your Context

Your Corporate Video In Context

When you create a corporate video to promote your business, you want to ensure your conversion rate is as good as possible. However, focusing on increasing traffic or click-through rate without considering contextual design might be a big mistake.

Ideally, you want the world to be talking about your video – for all the right reasons! If you’re hoping to build a bigger follower base and make your advertising easier in future, paying attention to design and context can really pay off. Here are some of our top tips to consider when you’re using video for your business.

Top Tips

1.    Look at what your audience wants. The context of your video must be related to the point at which your audience connects with you. For example, if they are looking to make a purchase, they will appreciate a video that makes the most of this context by reviewing or presenting specific details of a product, for example. A video that compares products or discusses the advantages of some lines over others, by contrast, would be ideal to influence viewers who are not yet committed to the sales process. Videos make excellent ways to encourage your customers towards sales, and can be a great way to share a lot of information and detail in an accessible way.

2.    Use the physical nature of video. Video is an obvious medium to use when you’re trying to point out exactly what you want your audience to know. For example, if you want to lead viewers around a web page, or steer them towards a specific call to action, having a video that literally signposts this and points it out is an excellent tool. Try this for product tours and new user guides to your website – it’s a simple but very effective tool!

3.    Don’t overlook design. Design is what appeals to your audience, hooking them into your brand and leading them to become interested in future campaigns. Video is the most successful medium for reaching audiences across the world, and it outstrips other advertising by a long way, so it’s well worth considering exactly what will make your campaign stand out. Viewers love video that is unique or beautiful, and simple ideas often translate better than those that try to combine too many elements.

The Importance Of Audio

The Importance Of Audio

Promotional videos have become the best way to advertise across all online platforms, but video will only be good for your business if it is done right. If you produce and display videos that are poor quality, badly designed or difficult to watch, you will be putting off potential customers and giving a bad impression of your company.

Sound is a very important consideration in a promotional video, and when a video is accompanied by poor audio, it has a very negative effect on viewers. Whether you are using video to promote products or to grow your brand across social media networks, the quality of your audio will be vital to the success of your campaign. Read More
