In a competitive world market, your brand must stand out from the crowd. And to be seen and heard above the rest, your business needs to be viewed as unique, outstanding, and remarkable — noticed outside the normal flow of advertisements, services, and local businesses.
What you need is an authentic voice for your business that engages people as you shout, “Hey! This is my brand — and we are worth noticing because we are awesome!”
Because, you are awesome, aren’t you?
This is where we can help you.
Discovering Your Brand Story
Your brand story is your unique, personal business story, from your inception to your current goals and values. It’s all the things that inspire you in your work. And when you tell your brand story to your viewers, customers, or partners, you want to communicate your company vision. Transfer your enthusiasm, and prove how you are different.
If you are unsure how to convey your brand story (or have forgotten), here are some questions to get you started:
- What are your company values? What business standards do you abide by? Do you have a company motto?
- What is your company personality, or style? Are you modern, professional, streamlined and efficient? Or are you quirky, laid-back, and family-oriented? A combination of both?
- How did your company begin? Where did you come from?
- What service or products does your company provide — and why are you passionate about those services/products?Why do your customers want and choose your products or services?
- What sets you apart from other businesses in your industry? What makes you special or unique?
As you answer these questions, you’ll start to see your brand story emerge. A clearer picture of who you are — and how your consumers need to see you. Consumers want to be able to identify and align with the businesses they choose to work with. People want to see into your company, and understand who you are and what you do. By telling them your brand story, you help them engage in your brand. They feel involved. Included. Inspired. A part of your business.
Which is exactly what you, as a corporate company, need. So, how do we help you achieve this?
Through the incredible power of video.
Corporate Video and Your Brand Story
Think about it. What other medium has more power to evoke tears, laughter, anger, chagrin — sometimes all within a few moments?
Stories. Videos that tell a story.
Videos are one of the best ways to engage consumers. There are a myriad of statistics circling the web supporting that statement, but here are just a few more to convince you (if you weren’t convinced already).
- 92% of mobile viewers share the videos they watch — Invodo
- 65% of executives have visited a vendor’s site after watching a video — Forbes
- 39% of viewers have called a vendor after watching a video — Forbes
- 82% of B2B marketers reported significant success with video marketing initiatives — Vidyard
- When marketers included a video in an email, the click-through rate increased by 200% – 300% — Forrester
- The average internet user spends 88% more time on a website with video — Mist Media
Obviously, videos are unique in their ability to attract and retain consumer interest. Of course — you can’t do this with just any video. When it comes to marketing your brand, you need to create a coherent, authentic brand story that is then conveyed to your viewer through web content, imagery, and, of course, video.
The ability to create a visual, audio, and emotional film that attracts attention and engages the senses to create a connection between your brand and the viewer is the goal. A well-produced corporate video project will help your consumers find a connection to your brand story, whether that be your awesome team members, your values, your vision behind your services, or something else.
You know the saying, “A picture is worth a thousand words.” A video, however, is worth millions. Video helps to deliver messages effectively, connecting with your audience in a way that text or even photos often can’t. Video is able to break down or simply convey complex concepts.
Video offers a unique experience for your viewers in that it isn’t just one image, or a wall of text. It is living, moving color (or black and white), with audio that is used to create a deeper experience. Consumers are pulled into your message. Emotions are aroused. Unique camera angles, various filming techniques, the use of 3D animation video — these are all ways to visually provide a vivid experience and to help your viewer to feel and understand your message. At Sparkworks Media, we are especially skilled in creating unique ideas and strategies to embody your brand for your corporate video production projects.
A well-produced corporate video will leave your viewers with a solid understanding of who you are and what you are passionate about. Their personal connection with your brand creates a lasting impression. They’ll love what they see. Because people love authenticity. Authentic representations of you who are will intrigue your viewers and leave them asking for more. More information, more services…more video.
