In fact, 51.9% of marketing professionals worldwide named video as the type of content with the best ROI, and it’s not just the professionals who love video, 96% of consumers find videos helpful when making a purchase decision online. Video is no longer an up and comer, it’s here, right now. In fact, By 2020, 82% of the world’s internet traffic will be video, there has never been a better time for video. But what exactly do you make? There are so many possible videos that can be made. Well here are some video content ideas for your campaign strategy.
Video Content Ideas for Events
Have you got an event or a special show in the works, an awards show? A showcase? Social meet and greet? Or maybe it’s not your event and you have just been invited. Whatever it is, you may want to take a look at these video content ideas for your event.
Filming the Event
Have you got an event coming up? Well, why not have a video of the event? It could have so many uses. From creating shareable content for social media to help increase reach, or from selling the event through various means (digital and physical) to help make a profit. We’ve talked about the benefits of filming an event before. Filming an event could also help with the engagement at the event as well as finding out what people think of the event by going around talking to people at the event, asking them questions and interacting with them and filming the results.
Well not everyone has an upcoming event in the works, but that doesn’t mean you can’t also use this video content idea. Perhaps you’re going to an event or show hosted by another company? Maybe you could record your trip and your experiences at the event and share them with others, make sure that the event host knows about it and that they are ok with what you are recording, they may even be willing to help share your video content through their channels.
We recently helped produce this video for Eurostaff’s AR/VR Meetup in Stockholm…
“Behind The Scenes”
Have you got an event, or a special show going on in the near future? Why not make a “Behind The Scenes” video showing the work and effort that is going on in making that show. Show the people who are integral to the process, show how what they are doing is important. Show people things that they wouldn’t normally see, it will give people an appreciation for what you are doing at this event.
Unfortunately unlike the one above this is only a video content idea that works if you have an event planned, if you don’t I wouldn’t recommend you start walking backstage at an event and film behind the scenes, I don’t think many events will be ok with you doing that
Video Content Ideas for Products
Maybe you want your videos focused on your products, well you will certainly want to have some videos ready for your products, 52 percent of consumers say that watching product videos makes them more confident in online purchase decisions. Here are some video content ideas for you product videos.
“How We Make It” Videos
Similar to The Behind The Scene videos you can show the “Behind the scenes” of the production process of a product, show the steps of how a product is made and the processes that are involved, maybe introduce some of the people who are involved in the process. While it may sound boring to just show how a product is made many people would be interested in seeing how a product is made, in fact, there is a popular TV show that focuses on exactly that.
Another Video Content Idea for products could be unboxing a finished product, Show off the packaging of the product and the thought process that went into it. Show off everything that the audience will get if they buy the product. This will help you showcase your products and help your audience make an informed purchase, in fact, 62% of people who view unboxing videos do so when researching a particular product
Product Reveal Videos
Have you got a new product in the works? Introduce it with a video. show people the features that they can expect from the product as well as how it will benefit them. A product reveal video will help inform users about the product and can be shared extremely easily meaning you can reach more people than with just a simple press release.

Product Review Videos
Does your client sell a tangible product, well how about make a product review video? (although you may want to ensure you are following the rules associated with that or you could face some consequences)
Doesn’t have to be a big budget production have a look at these product reviews by YouTuber Ashens, all he has is a camera set up in front of a tatty old settee reviewing Poundland junk and he has over a million subscribers on youtube. It’s not necessarily about presentation, it’s about content.
Video Content Ideas For Your Interviews
Interviews are a great way to showcase the people involved with your company or your industry. but they don’t have to be transcripts or audio-only podcasts, you can have videos of the interviews that take place.
Staff Introduction Videos
Introduce your staff to the audience, let people know who your staff are, what they do, and what they know. These videos can be useful for introducing yourselves to clients that are likely to work with these people.
