If your company is solely focused on generating mass loads of content to feed your website, pause and consider the following facts about the need for visual media:

What makes these videos so powerful? Here are a few pointers & what we can learn:
TIP 1: Keep it short and punchy
Web copy is most potent in short and powerful packages. The same goes for video marketing copy. Some of the best brand videos do well because they get to the point quickly and creatively. Doing this saves time for your customers and showcases your best work.
TIP 2: Choose a powerful soundtrack
The right song can create passion and energy that sway’s a prospect into purchasing from your brand. The wrong song can bore, irritate or worse yet, confuse a buyer out of supporting your brand. Make sure that the music and visuals in your videos match your messaging and brand promises.
TIP 3: Integrate social media
How do you get people talking about your videos? Include links to specific landing pages, promote tailored hashtags and include messages that encourage a call to action. These can be added on the final slide of the video or throughout the video. The goal is to start the conversation and equip people with the tools to continue it.
