Ideas for Engaging Customers with Video

As this article from Social Media Examiner points out, there are many ways to engage customers using video.   Facebook, LinkedIn and YouTube are listed, but are really the platforms for video delivery.  There are many other suggestions in the article on types of videos for business communications, including product videos, interviews with experts and key influencers, day-in-the-life and other types of videos.

One main point the article makes is that the videos don’t have to be long to be effective. In fact, if they are longer than five minutes, they have less chance of being viewed at all, unless the content is compelling, of course.  So keep them short, use your experts and produce them at a level of quality that communicates professionalism and builds trust in your brand.
