Video content is a hot topic in marketing circles. We’ve been seeing studies for years now that video is the way people want to consume content. Search engines continue to reward businesses with video on their homepage with additional traffic. So if you haven’t yet embraced video, now is the time to start.
Oftentimes when people think of video marketing, they think of social media content. While there’s certainly a great case to be made for using video on social platforms (and lots of ways to do it!), incorporating video across other marketing channels is just as essential.
Here, let’s take a look at the five types of video content that can be added to any business’s marketing system. This will allow you to tell your brand story in a dynamic, engaging way.
When it comes to marketing your business, it pays to have a good story. Storytelling has been around since the dawn of time, and a compelling story has the power to inspire readers, make them think, and motivate them to take action.
Creating a core story—one that speaks to the heart of what you do, who you are here to serve, and why—can guide all of your marketing messaging and empower you to connect with people all throughout the customer journey.
So how do you develop a powerful core story and message? Follow these steps.

This is where storytelling comes in. Sure, there are a number of businesses out there that could theoretically solve your prospect’s problem. But by crafting a compelling brand story, you can differentiate yourself as the brand that understands the problem the best and has the most thoughtful solution to the issue.
There are five key elements to any effective brand story. Here, we’ll share the tips you need to create a statement that sets your business apart.

For the longest time, we’ve been so accustomed to seeing “About Us” sections on websites reading things like “our company has been the industry’s pioneer,” or “we are committed to providing only the best,” or “our product solves problems and reduces costs.” Although there may be truth to all these, shining the spot light on your company instead of your customers is a huge mistake. You can tell these stories with as much zeal and confidence as you’d like, but it will not make customers like or trust you.
I am Roaya Sharif, former owner of Roya Café. I am attending the course of “Executive coaching and Mentorship in marketing program” too late, it makes me feel that I should have attended it before I start my business, the lack of experience at marketing could not make me stand on my foot.
