What content should I post?
You don’t need to be a Hollywood filmmaker to be worthy of uploading videos to YouTube. It’s a social channel, which means the eclectic mix of videos cover everything from the amateur to the professional. Business video content can fit somewhere in between. But before you go out and buy the latest and greatest video camera, take a look at what content you already have in the office. Chances are you’ll have PowerPoint slides, video footage from conferences, presentations, seminars and interviews – which all make great content. Remember, as long as your content is value-adding, helpful, entertaining, and helps position your business as an expert in your industry you’re on the right track.
Some effective content ideas:
– existing TV & Cinema commercials
– meet the team Q&A with key staff and personnel
– customer testimonials
– film a tour of your offices to help your audience feel connected with you
– create a video explaining your key services or products
– create ‘how to’ mini tutorials that explain how to use your products or services.
Brio Tip: Whenever you post videos that are suitable for sharing, promote it through Facebook and Twitter, write a blog about it, or embed the video on appropriate pages of your website.
