Corporate Video Ideas & Tips
A quick search on YouTube will show you that there are a lot of expensive corporate videos out there, but very few good ones. But here’s the good news: with Biteable you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to make a great corporate video, you can do it yourself! Just read our handy list of do’s and dont’s to give you a head start on making a great corporate video.
- Pitch to your audience. Work out before you start who the audience is and what you’re intending to do with the video, as this will greatly influence the tone. Is it for your website, prospective employees or will it run on a loop on CCTV? Is it promoting the business as a whole or just one small aspect? When you’ve worked that out, tailor your video to that audience.
- Be specific. It’s better if you narrow the focus of your video and use one small aspect of your business to explain the whole. Hang the whole narrative off one device: it could be one employee’s story, it could be a building, it could be the humble beginnings of the company or something abstract like an emotion. Once you’ve started small you can broaden the scope but the narrative must always link back to or flow from the original idea.
- Tell a story. One of the most important things to do with your video is to appeal to people’s imagination. Don’t try to tell them what to think but involve them in the story. Benjamin Franklin said: “Tell me and I forget. Involve me and I learn.” Share the story of the business or your vision for the company rather than listing your assets. If you win someone’s heart and mind, they will be a far better employee or more willing customer.
- Back up your claims. It’s not good enough to simply tell people what your values are, you should be able to provide evidence that backs you up. Giving concrete examples of what you’re talking about in the form of changes you’ve made to people’s lives is far more powerful than talking about how much money you have.
- Use close-ups. Close-ups of objects and people work better than wide shots, especially if you know the video will be watched on a small screen such as tablet or mobile. Close-ups help to narrow the focus of the narrative, giving the audience something or someone to relate to.
- Include Testimonials. People are far more likely to believe what they think is a real person giving a real opinion. It’s as close as you can get to genuine word-of-mouth, one of the most powerful tools in marketing.
- Have bad sound. People will run screaming from your video if the sound quality is poor. If you include ‘talking head’ style interviews, take the time to find out how to record the audio properly, without background noise, hiss or echoes.
- Include boring, irrelevant details. Cut out everything that’s not telling the story. You might think that the awards you’ve received or how many warehouses you have is impressive, but unless it’s part of a wider, human story, it’s just bumf.
- Go too long. One of the worst crimes any video can do is to outstay its welcome. Length will be determined by the destination of course (a YouTube video should be 1-2 mins but a looping promo for CCTV in your foyer can afford to be longer), but between one and three minutes is a good rule of thumb.
- Try to do too much. Focus on one objective, it’s been said that if you can’t sum up your video in one sentence then you’re probably trying to fit too much in. Write your script and then strip it back to only the bare essentials.
