If you have had experience with shooting corporate video, then you may be familiar with the negative perception that surrounds this particular kind of video format. While video is a very effective marketing tool, corporate video has a tendency to have a reputation for being bland and boring for people.
As a result, many of businesses have opted to no longer have a corporate video for their businesses. While it is true that a poorly shot company video can end up being boring, as long as it’s done right, it can be a very powerful marketing tool that can be used for the benefit of your company.
One of the great things about company video is its versatility when it comes to format. You can shoot product videos, advertisements, and educational videos, and all of these can be utilized by the company. We will talk about creating an effective educational company video. If done right, this type of video can be used to drive sales to your business.
Understanding in depth the video’s purpose
It’s very important that you understand completely the purpose of the educational video. You cannot expect to tell a compelling story if you do not understand what the purpose of the story is. Whether you mean to educate your customers about a new product, or the industry that your business is based in, it’s very important that you understand the intricacies of these.
Make sure that everything is planned for
Before anything else, you have to make sure that you plan out your video completely. All of the logistics and specific details from storyboard to script must be discussed and agreed upon right at the beginning. If the video is not adequately planned, then there may be issues during filming later on, and may cause the final product to feel unfinished and confusing as well.
Keep it short
One of the biggest faults of an educational corporate video is its length. Many people mistakenly believe that since it’s educational, it has to be as extensive as possible. The truth of the matter is that you need to condense the important points into a shorter format. This helps guarantee that you can maintain the attention of your audience for the entirety of the video.
Tell your story as engagingly as possible
Be creative as possible with your video. Remember, you only have a few minutes to get users interested in your video and your company, so make sure that you make the most of it. Establish a connection with your audience with facial expressions and open body language, and use simple language so as not to overload your audience with technical terms.
