In today’s saturated media landscape, attention spans are shorter than ever. In fact, I’ve stopped reading this already. If only we had a video to tell this story (easter egg; also, not enough time this week for a video). Captivating, informative, and versatile, video content can grab viewers instantly and leave a lasting impression. But where do you start? What’s right for your business and audience? How can you begin to integrate more video content into your marketing efforts? Well, aren’t we glad you asked – otherwise, why are we even writing this?!? 

So without further ado, here are seven impactful ways to do just that.

1. Craft Compelling Explainer Videos

  • Demystify your product or service with clear, concise videos
  • Use animation, product demonstrations, or customer testimonials to simplify complex concepts
  • Keep it short and sweet – aim for 1-2 minutes to hold attention

2. Leverage Video for Social Media Content

  • Tailor video content for each platform
  • Utilize eye-catching visuals and trending audio on platforms like TikTok and Instagram Reels
  • Share live Q&A sessions or behind-the-scenes glimpses on platforms like Facebook and YouTube
  • And PLEASE, don’t start your strategy session with “We need to create a viral video!”

3. Showcase Customer Testimonials

  • Let your satisfied customers do the talking
  • Feature video testimonials that highlight the positive impact of your product or service
  • Build trust and credibility by showcasing genuine customer experiences
  • Don’t worry about delivering high production value – people are used to seeing phone-recorded videos – take advantage of that (but have a plan!)

4. Educate and Entertain with Educational Videos

  • Establish yourself as a thought leader by offering valuable information they can’t find elsewhere
  • Create “how-to” videos or answer FAQ in an engaging format
  • Educate your audience while showcasing you and your brand’s expertise

5. Tell Your Brand Story

  • Connect with your audience on a deeper level by sharing your brand’s story
  • Showcase your company culture, values, and the people behind the brand
  • Find ways to integrate video into your proposals, presentations, and new business pitches
  • Keep it short and sweet – break up your video story into smaller short-form videos to keep your audience engaged over a long period of time

6. Partner with Influencers

  • Collaborate with relevant influencers in your niche to reach a wider audience
  • Leverage the influencer’s credibility and established following to promote your brand
  • Create engaging video content that aligns with the influencer’s style and audience
  • Encourage user generated content to engage with your audience in different ways

7.  Repurpose Existing Content

  • Don’t let your past video content gather dust
  • Repurpose snippets of longer videos into shorter social media clips
  • Extract audio from videos to create podcasts or voice-over content for presentations


  • Quality over Quantity: Although low-fi can work, don’t be hesitant to invest in high-quality audio and visuals for a more polished look that will stand the test of time.
  • Captivate Early: Grab viewers’ attention within the first few seconds.
  • Track and Analyze: Monitor video performance metrics to understand what resonates with your audience and what they’re willing to engage with.
