Video is the biggest web traffic driver out there. It’s estimated that video will make up over 82% of all internet traffic by 2022. So, if it is video content that is attractive to the bulk of your audience, would it make sense to give it a little extra attention?

Yes, the idea of producing video for your business may be a little intimidating, but creating engaging video content doesn't have to be complicated, and it can, in fact, be cost-effective as well. So, if you’re going to stand out among your competitors, your company should have the following simple and effective video content incorporated into your marketing strategy:
About Us Videos
Use these videos as a vehicle for telling your company story and emphasizing your brand. Try to keep them short and engaging to capture the viewer’s attention without overwhelming them with too much information.

Remember, you want your audience to get a sense of the humans running your business. They should come away wanting to know more and either become a customer or a partner capable of providing you with an additional boost in business.
Sometimes visitors just want to get specific answers to questions about your company. FAQ videos are a great alternative to having them read through large blocks of text. In addition, they’re a great way to establish brand authority for future clients and encourage them to visit your business site.
Use FAQ videos to showcase your expertise in specific subjects and separate yourself from the competition. Another benefit of FAQ videos is that they show visitors that you’re tapped into your customers' concerns and are willing to address their issues. Other benefits include:
- Giving customers an organized way to find answers
- Establishes trust between you and visitors
- Provides visitors with a better understanding of your brand
Did you know that YouTube is the largest search engine behind Google? Nowadays, when something stops working, people immediately take to the internet to find a solution. Having how-to videos ready to go for your customers allows them to get answers directly from the source instead of turning to your competitors. Most people prefer having videos to guide them through fixes as they’re working through problems. That way, they can pause, rewind, or manipulate the video however they need until they address their issue.
When you purchase a new phone or buy a new washing machine, you want to ensure you’re taking advantage of all the bells and whistles. Instructional videos help guide customers through situations like setting up phone software or changing the water temperature and water levels on the washer.

- They’re easily shareable via social media platforms
- Your audience can access them as needed
- You can reuse them, which saves you money
- They can boost your brand popularity
