4. No Repetition in Your Best Marketing Video

The content of your video should be inspiring and fresh. Depending on the length of your marketing video, make sure to stay on the point and deliver interesting information since the very beginning. Don’t try to add words just to lengthen your video time. Be precise!

It is because nobody wants to watch a boring video. 🙁 

5. Mobile Compatible

While creating a marketing video you need to realize that viewers are going to access it from different devices. Therefore, it needs to be compatible with mobile and every other video format.

For example, if you have created your video using QTFF application, then you can convert MOV to MP4 with tools like the VC.

6. Search Engine Optimization

Even a marketing video can be ineffective without proper search engine optimization. So try and add maximum search engine optimization value to your content so that Google can pick it up quickly.

And you probably know Google loves video today! 🙂  Adding text to your video for those that cannot hear well or for those with volumes low also helps SEO.

 7. Your Official URL

Another thing that can help you a great deal in the year 2019 is making sure that you include your official URL in your marketing video.

This way people will be able to link back to your original website or page.

8. Adding Music to the Best Marketing Video

A lot of marketing videos these days have background music playing. But what you need to be careful about is the kind of music as well as its volume.

In case you are going to be talking in your video, then the music should either be very subtle or nil. This would help people hear the information properly without having to struggle.

9. Customer Generated Content

While you are promoting your product, the best way to do so is with the help of your previous customers. That is why you can record them talking about your product which will build trust for other viewers.

Besides, even if you have shot the video in a different format, for example, QTFF; then you can convert MOV to MP4 easily using the VC software.

10. Call to Action in Your Best Marketing Video

Call to action is an important part of any marketing content. Most people think that only blogs and articles should have this part.

11. Behind the Scenes

One of the biggest marketing strategies that you can implement in your videos is taking viewers behind the scenes. This allows them to understand how the video was made and the effort that was put towards it.

This will not only be an interesting part for them to watch but will also help them connect with you on a deeper level.

12. Video Length

Even though it is a marketing video, which needs to explain everything about your product, it should be kept short. People do not like to waste their time learning in depth about the product.

Therefore, it should be more like a teaser which tells them about the mission of the product as well as its usage. YouTube’s average video today is 4 minutes and 20 seconds. With Instagram, the video length must be 60 seconds or less (unless you are IG). And Instagram stories are 15 seconds maximum.

Therefore, it should be more like a teaser which tells them about the mission of the product as well as its usage. #videomarketing #inspiretothrive Click To Tweet

13. Voice Over

In case you have decided to get your video voiceover by someone else make sure that they have a professional speech. Nothing ruins a good video like an unclear tone and wrong pronunciations.

Besides, try to avoid using a mechanical voice since it ruins the entire purpose of the video.

14. Engage with Viewers

Whatever you are promoting will only get attention when you engage with your viewers. To do so, you can ask some questions through your video and allows them to revert back in the comment section.

This way you will be able to interact one on one with the viewers in a casual manner.

15. Video Quality

People are going to be watching your video on different devices, which is why the quality of it should always be excellent and compatible. Whether it is the background or the lighting, it always needs to be professional so that people take your message seriously.

Besides, there should be no background noises in your video as well.
