How to Leverage Video for Your Business

Welcome to the month of love! The Boathouse treated us to delicious hors d’oeuvres and Ambro-Sia’s Greek Pastries provided the perfect sweet end to the evening. Doug Dibert walked us through the NEW Engaged Pro Video platform and gave us tips on how to use video to share the love about our businesses.

Video helps highlight your biggest differentiator…YOU

Here are the types of videos that every business needs to be using consistently:

  1. Video testimonials (combat the rise of fake written reviews and connect your potential customers with a real person)
  2. Branded video content
  3. Case study videos
  4. Video email

Engaged Pro Video offers each of these options as a way to connect more authentically with your customers.

Other reasons to use video:

  • Attracts new customers and increases conversion rates
  • Helps clients make decisions by quickly understanding your products and services
  • Testimonials demonstrate how your product or service may affect their life
  • Position yourself as a thought leader (POST EXPERT TIP VIDEOS ON LINKED IN!!)
