3 Best Channels for Promoting Your Product Video for Maximum Results

Where to Place Product Video

Marketers consider explainer videos, or any other video content, as stunners in the marketing universe.

However, video content doesn’t bring miracles; it’s just another weapon in your marketing arsenal.

This means that for it to actually improve your business, you have to apply the proper strategy and deliver the content to the right channels.

Some business owners expect explainer videos to magically increase their engagement, conversion or sales percentage. While it’d be good if that were the case, sadly it isn’t.

You need to drive your explainer video or other video content in the right direction before you can expect any results from it.

That’s why, in this blog, I’ll show you where to place your product explainer video to get the most out of your investment.

Website’s Landing Page Video/Product Page

With today’s level of Internet traffic and online businesses, an explainer video on your landing page is a no-brainer.

Aside from being visually more pleasing (if done correctly and produced to high standards), landing page explainer videos make your products, especially complicated products, more accessible.

Let’s say you’re a SaaS company like DropBox or Olark that requires the audience to understand what your software does before they can decide if they have a need for it.

In this case, landing page videos change the way you present your product to a more enticing and entertaining experience. Besides, most explainer videos are narrated with casual language that helps viewers to digest more information from it.

Landing page explainer videos can walk visitors through using your product or service and explain its use much better and faster than text could.

By pushing your explainer video to your landing page/product page, you improve visitors’ experience: They can understand your offers at a deeper level, thus driving them a step further into the conversion funnel.

Email Newsletters

Explainer videos add spice to your email newsletter. In fact, a study by MarketingProfs found that “video” is among the keywords that improve the overall performance of an email newsletter.

They found that including “video” within the newsletter, whether in the subject line or email content, improve the email open rate by 18% and the click-through rate by 20%, and reduce the unsubscribe rate by 26%.

There are pros and cons to embedding video directly into an email, the main pros being that the user experience will be significantly improved.

However, there’s a drawback to embedding an explainer video into an email: Not all email clients support in-app video playback.

The popular alternative is attaching a picture or animated gif from the video and linking it to your video on an external player.

Social Media Business Pages

If you’ve spent time online, likely you’ve realized that social media video is a major phenomenon.

The types of social media video vary from something as silly as cat videos to serious stuff like corporate videos.

Businesses and companies realize that social media can be their front-end marketing channel.

Make no mistake, social media isn’t for increasing sales, although they have some impact on conversion rate.

A research by Global Web Index found that:

  • 37% of Internet users follow their favorite brands online, and
  • 30% use social media to research products they’re about to buy.

With that in mind, your company’s social media account is surely the first page that prospects visit to find out more about your product.

That’s where an explainer video has its ultimate value: explaining what your product does and why prospects need it.

Whether your main social media concern is Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, an explainer video can fit all of them.

However, there are potholes in sharing a business-related video on social media. Make sure you know the right way to share business videos on social media to avoid those potholes and increase engagement.

Takeaway

An explainer video isn’t a miracle worker that will magically increase your company’s revenue. It’s a gateway to get your target audience onboard with your product by providing more information as to why they should use your product/service.

In order for your product explainer videos to reach target audience, you need to push them through the right channels. There are quite a number of these channels, but these 3 are the most important of all:

  • Landing pages or product pages
  • Email newsletters, and
  • Social media pages.

  • Andre is an excellent hire. Always on-time with work and extremely helpful in every situation. Our company needed someone we could rely on and Andre certainly filled that role. Knowledgeable, courteous, flexible and fast!

  • This is a great animation studio. When I was not completely satisfied with the work that was initially done, they went above and beyond to fix everything I had problems with and meet my satisfaction. Would recommend to anyone.

  • I have worked with Andre on a number of occassions, hiring him on behalf of a client. Andre not only produces high quality work on time and to budget, he also gets us! And by this I mean that he works well & is understanding of the needs and restrictions that come with working with non-techy, not for profits. Andre is happy to revisit work and offer advice even after he's received payment and the job has closed. I would have no hesitation in recommending Andre and Bread n' Beyond to anyone sourcing graphic design work.

  • Overall amazing!! Not only will we hire them again, I have already sent two more people their direction because they did such an amazing job. Thanks you for doing such a great job.

  • Working with the team at BreadnBeyond was a fantastic experience and achieved exactly what I was hoping for.. converting more visitors to trial users by explaining the product quickly and simply. They are super organised to work with, making it easy for someone who has not done this type of thing before, and provided updates at each step of the process.The final video was brilliant, exceeding my expectations. I’ll definitely be using the team again when it comes time to create explainers for my other products. All the best, and thanks again!

    Reza G., Founder ExpressIELTS
  • We loved working with the team, they were professional, prompt and adhered to our requirements and change requests. We liked the final delivery and fully satisfied with their work.

    Zeeshan Alam, Mobile Spy
  • We have asked Bread'n Beyond to create animations for a smart phone game we are developing. They have provided us with competitive price, great customer service and have delivered a superb product. More importantly, when, at one point is seemed that their chosen animator did not have the appropriate style, they changed the animator on our account to better suit what we needed before we even asked. I would HIGHLY recomend them and plan to work with them on other projects to come.

    Leo Novski
  • Working with Breadnbeyond was great. They did everything asked, and each revision of the video improved upon the previous one. I will definitely be using this team for my next animation project.

    Four Leaf Technology
  • Working with this company was a pleasure, as staff that worked on the job, were competent, pleasant, and extremely patient. They went beyond to ensure that I as the customer was satisfied right up unto the end. Their work is exceptional and very creative. I consider the cover that they made for my book a work of art and cutting edge. I will not hesitate to use them again for my next project.
