1. Customer testimonials on Video

By using video for testimonials you inform your potential customers about your integrity and you have proven your testimonials are real people, not simply one written by someone inside your company.

Video also creates a real close bond to the viewer and helps the viewer to see the human emotion behind the testimony. Quite simply a video testimonial is way more credible than any written down on paper

4. Training and education

Video is a highly powerful and effective method of training people as people remember more when they see a demonstration on a screen over simply reading it in a manual.

Used in conjunction with a manual or mp3 sound files to take away they can refer to the notes later, but the initial visual message is the most compelling and memorable.

We are a very visual species and people remember 80% of what they see in a video compared to 20% of what they read.

5. Regular Video blogs and webinars

People buy from those they know and trust.

There is no better way of gaining that initial trust than by having a regular video appearing telling what has been happening recently. This gains trust as an organisation, it informs people who are otherwise undecided, and will often tip people in your favour if there are two competitors with similar products or services.

Video content Is now vital when it comes to integrating into your marketing campaign and it really needs to be integrated closely into marketing and into the Internet side of your business in 2015.
