Types of Videos for Video Marketing Campaigns
The first question to ask when doing a video marketing campaign is “What kind of video should I have?”
Explainer videos are a popular choice these days. They are used by companies worldwide on mediums such as Facebook, Google, YouTube, Instagram to promote their products. Explainer videos do a great job in explaining what the product or service is about within 2 minutes. Animated explainer videos are great for explaining newer unique concepts, or breaking down complex ideas into simple animated illustrations. They also give your company a friendlier brand image if the animation uses cute cartoon characters. They are also more frequently used for B2C businesses.
The other tried and tested type of video is live action filming video. This kind of video is better suited for lifestyle videos, services and products that are more experiential in nature, and brands looking for a more professional corporate look. They are also more frequently used for B2B businesses.
