Consider creating video tutorials showcasing your products or services. Another popular use of video is to record a Power Point presentations from your screen to educate your target market and customers. Video provides evidence about the functionality and use of your product while answering questions your prospects may have

    one good example of a company using video for content marketing and product recognition is Blendtec. Many of these videos have gone viral so millions of viewers watch their videos and become familiar with their products and brand. This is a great example of how to use video to educate prospects about products and services.

  • Add video to landing pages - Consider adding video testimonials and other video content to grab the attention of visitors to your sales landing pages. According to a post on Common Craft, several companies have seen a 158% difference in conversions on landing pages with video testimonials vs. those without.

  • Create live video events - Add video to your content marketing campaign by introducing video events such as webinars and special events. By streaming a live event, you engage viewers with powerful content broadcasted live while giving prospects information on your products and how they solve their business needs. As the cost of technology to stream live video continues to spiral downward, more and more companies are seriously looking into this content distribution method to attract new customers and educate existing ones.

Another way to extend your live video content is record the event and re-broadcast snippets for your B2B blog or product landing pages and also makes the entire event available to people who couldn't make the scheduled time

  • Record offline events - Video isn't just for online events; consider recording seminars, conferences and luncheons that provide valuable insight on your products and services. Redistribute that video on DVDs with marketing collateral for future conferences and online for blog posts and other content marketing.
