Credibility through video content
Credibility for a brand cannot be shown in a better format than from video content. Utilising different videos allows for audiences to see all aspects of a brands credibility. This is an extremely useful and productive way to help increase CRO, ROI and SEO all at once.
Video content tells a story and keeps the viewer interested and intrigued whilst promoting the brand at the same time.
What works best?
- Brand: An excellent way to introduce yourself to your viewers. Tell your audience the story of your brand, your core values; convincing them that your company is unique and worth their time.
- Explainer: Another benefit of explainer videos is that they don’t outwardly promote your product or service. Instead, they provide useful important to help your audience. Whilst introducing them to your brand at the same time.
- Live Feed/Event: Video content of these events is a great way to bring the fun of the occasion you’re celebrating. In addition, online viewers who aren’t there but want to be “in the moment” won’t miss out.
- Testimonials: A potential customer is expecting you to talk up your company as the best. But when they hear someone who isn’t connected to your brand or a previous customer talk highly of it, they’re more likely to trust it.
The more reliable your brand looks, the greater your traffic and CRO will be. As the brand gains more credibility, the SEO aspect will be affected dramatically. This subsequently moves you up in page rank order.
Look at the bigger picture. What use is a brand that has no credibility or loyalty from customers?
