Corporate Video Trends

We are half way through the year so it’s time to look at what’s happening in the world of corporate video production. We’re always investigating the latest trends to offer to our customers so here are a few things to look out for. Video production has seen a lot of changes over the years. From growth of virtual reality and 4K video to aerial drone video, video technology has reached a completely new level. As recent survey suggested that including a video on a landing page can increase the conversion rates by 80%. 64% of users purchase a product online after watching the video. A Youtube reports shows that mobile video consumption has risen by 100% every year, which is why it is vital for video makers to stay up to date with the trends in video production.

4K video

New cameras and TVs are now starting to use 4K capabilities. Video streaming sites are now giving users the option to upload 4K footage. Once it is the norm then companies will expect videos to be shot in this format. As well as looking awesome, 4K video is helpful for video makers as they can zoom in on footage without a decrease in resolution. If you need to correct framing or appear that an interview has been shot with two or three cameras, then shooting in 4K can help.

Affordable equipment

High-end kit such as drones and 360-degree cameras used to cost thousands. However, more affordable versions for the consumer market have helped decrease these prices.

In-house videographers

Affordable technology has meant brands can have their own in-house video team. This means that video production companies have to provide content they cannot produce themselves.

Video Streaming

Streaming is already very popular and sites are using streaming options on their sites. Facebook or Twitter streaming is a great idea and works well.


Recently whiteboard animation has become very popular. The reason is that whiteboard animation is simple and easy to showcase what you’ve got. Many companies also use slideshows as corporate videos. This is a great option if you’ve got images to show to clients.


Video has changed the way we educate and learn. You can study almost anything at home. It has opened a new world of faster learning and education.

Trend you should follow to get most out of your video marketing are:

Is Video Marketing Worth It?

When creating a video marketing strategy, many businesses believe that saving money will still give them the same results. They might choose not to promote their products in all areas, or they might even ask themselves if video marketing is really worth it? Does online video content really offer them the same results as text with text being more affordable and easier to produce?

If you are asking yourself these same questions, you should know that video marketing is more effective than text marketing and it offers a better return on your investment. Does it cost more to produce video content? Yes, but it also offers more benefits than text marketing and we are going to share some of them with you so you can decide if video marketing is really worth it for your business.

1. Video Content Increases Conversions and Sales

Adding video content to your landing page can increase conversions by up to 80%. Video content can also increase sales as 74% of viewers who watched an explainer video, bought the product featured.

2. Video Content Offers Better ROI

Many business owners say that when they use video content to sell a product or service, the ROI is often much higher than using text content alone. Images increase engagement so it would make sense that moving images can increase engagement even more and result in more sales.

3. Video Content Builds Trust
Customers say the main reason they purchased a particular product was the video content that explained the product and even featured the actual product

being used. This is because they can trust someone that is actually using the product over an image of the product or text content describing the product and how to use it. Video content also puts a face and a person with the product or company and that builds trust immediately for most customers.

4. Google Favours Video Content

When trying to reach the first page in the search engines, digital marketers work hard and their efforts sometimes don’t pay off. Using video content can increase your chances of reaching the first page by 53 times. Plus, since Google owns YouTube, there has been a significant increase on how much videos affect your search engine rank.

5. Video Engages Buyers

Video marketing can engage a much larger audience than text content and it can sell your products to even the laziest of shoppers. Many online users watch video content over reading text because it is easier and, on some social media platforms including Facebook, the video content can autoplay making it even easier for businesses to reach their audience. People want to see products in action and this is one of the most important driving forces of video advertising.

The Rise of Video Companies

Any business that does not have promotional content on its website or lacks a presence in social networks is considered to be behind these days.

According to research, 92% of all large companies in the world use videos as a means of promotion, marketing or customer service. Most of them are beginning to accept how videos and the Internet have grown within their reach and dominate as a medium today. Newspapers, radio and television have become obsolete in the field of marketing and are no longer an effective means for companies to reach their customers. Video production companies are living their dream and meeting the creative needs of everyone from small businesses to large corporations. The videos have grown in scope and are smaller in length. Video production companies have traveled in a long and successful way so far and have much to conquer even more. This is the reason.

Video production used to be big business a few years ago when nothing was digitized. Film production needed bulky rolls, huge production equipment, great crew, and high-end editing tools that almost cost crazy amounts. However, today, even a handheld mobile device can record high definition videos. Digital videos are smaller to store and cloud computing makes storing GB and TB data easy. With advanced graphics and animation, it is now possible to express impossible ideas on the screen and 3D technology has made the videos incredibly interactive.

With the Internet, the world has transformed into a global village and everyone is connected to each other. Commercial organizations can not find a larger and more connected audience elsewhere, and that's the reason why online marketing is everyone's favorite today. Research says that 85% of people who watch videos on the Internet about a product or service are more likely to buy that product or subscribe to that service. The videos create an instantaneous relationship between the consumer and the product that is ascribed to their compact and effective narrative. More than 72 hours of videos are uploaded to YouTube every minute and more than 3 billion hours of video are viewed each month on YouTube.

The videos have revolutionized the world of information and the internet drastically in a very short time. Video production companies understand this trend and aim to produce creative videos of short duration, but highly effective. With marketing campaigns that span more than ever before, and the technology that makes video production more streamlined, video production companies definitely have a long way to go!
