By following these tips, you can create compelling video content that will engage and form a connection with customers.

Tutorial Videos

Tutorial videos are an effective way to engage customers by demonstrating how to use your products. These videos typically feature a step-by-step guide and can include illustrations, screenshots, and voice-overs to make them easier to follow. Tutorial videos can be used to answer frequently asked questions, introduce customers to new features, and product releases,  and demonstrate the many benefits of using your products. Additionally, tutorial videos can help customers troubleshoot any technical problems they may encounter.

Product Updates/Share Customer Experiences

Product updates and sharing a loyal customer's journey or experience are great ways to engage your customers with video. By showcasing your product or service in action with real customer content, you can give new customers a better understanding of how it works and the benefits it brings. Additionally, by showing customers how their peers are using the product as well as their customer satisfaction you can help build trust and confidence in your product and build deeper customer relationships. You can also use customer-generated content to showcase the strength of your product, as it gives your customers a chance to talk about their experiences and share the value they've gained which creates customer loyalty.

Make Them Easy to Find

As part of the customer engagement process, it is important to make your videos easily accessible and findable. This can be accomplished by using strategic tagging and categorization of your videos, as well as utilizing SEO and other discovery methods. Additionally, you should consider creating videos specifically for targeted customer segments and using targeted campaigns to drive customers to watch them. This will help ensure that the right customers are viewing the right videos and that you are delivering highly relevant content.

Use Asynchronous Communication

Asynchronous communication is a powerful tool for engaging customers with video. Asynchronous communication allows customers to watch videos at their own pace and convenience. This enables customers to interact more with the video and get the most out of it. Additionally, asynchronous communication provides the customer with more control over their viewing experience, enabling them to watch certain parts multiple times or pause and replay sections for a deeper understanding. This is especially useful for videos that include complex information or technical topics. Finally, customers are more likely to take action after watching an asynchronous video since they have had the opportunity to form a better understanding of the materials.
