And which type of video should you use? Here are 10 types of corporate videos for you to choose from.
Company Profile Video
These videos are great if you want to introduce your company to consumers and potential stakeholders. It’s a short video that gives a broad overview of the company and the services or products that are on offer. It may include information about your company’s purpose, some company history, or even a message from the CEO. These types of corporate videos are aimed at helping people to understand and engage with your company.
This type of video is about getting more specific with regard to a particular product or service. These can often be showcased online as specific audiences can be targeted effectively. However, these videos can also work well on television broadcasting platforms. Promotional corporate videos help to promote brand recognition and brand familiarity. New product launches are also a great idea to create consumer awareness.
Industrial Videos are aimed at people within a specific industry. Designed to be informative about products or services, these videos for a variety of different means. Whether for business to business marketing, fundraising, or investor involvement, these videos are often used at trade shows.
Social Media Videos
These videos are short and often emotive which encourages the viewer to share the video. What’s important here, is to highlight the brand more than the product or service that’s being offered. This can be done by linking your company to specific events or news headlines to catch the viewers’ attention. Social media videos are focused on niche specific groups of consumers which is accomplished through online algorithms. This makes it a very effective marketing tool.

Recruitment videos can also give the impression that your company is being run successfully, hence the need for more recruits.
Internal Communication Video
These are about sharing information within the company or to clients. You can explain a company policy, help with new employee induction, or even reflect on a milestone. It’s also effective in explaining an upcoming project or initiative that your company is planning. Internal communication videos help to ensure that your employees, and clients, stay informed about important details regarding your company.
Conferences present valuable information to consumers about key issues. These may include elements such as industry trends, current challenges and how to overcome them, and also the future vision of your company. Conferences often require vast resources to make them successful and effective. Filming your conference can help to capture the main themes that were presented, and can also be a method to reveal extended content that wasn’t presented at the conference itself.
Social Responsibility Videos
These videos are designed to showcase what your business is doing to help and give back into your community. This is an attractive aspect to many clients as it communicates a vision that’s bigger than just the business itself. Testimonial videos are a good option as they can document how people’s lives have changed as a result of your company’s help.
