Presentations And Speeches
If you’re presenting or speaking at an upcoming event, record and share it with your followers. Letting your audience see you in action is a great way to help them connect with your brand.
Do you have satisfied clients willing to sing your praises to the digital masses? Record an interview with them where they can share with others what to expect when doing business with your brand.
A Day In The Life
YouTube viewers love taking a peek behind the scenes of the brands they follow. Record short clips that showcase the office, your staff, and any fun things about your internal culture that will resonate with your audience.
No matter what you decide to share, use the first few seconds of your video to command attention. Include a “hook” of your most compelling information to keep viewers watching. Keep it concise; tell your story as expediently as possible without diluting the message. Finally, don’t forget to include a specific call to action (CTA) letting viewers know exactly what to do after they’ve watched your video.
