Video content is ubiquitous in marketing today. It is predicted to form an even greater part of marketing for a business in the future. Audiences love to watch video content and often find it easier to consume when attention spans are shortening. From a business marketing perspective, video makes sense when wanting to get target audiences to understand a key message and to get them to take an action.
But video doesn’t need to cost the earth; nor does it need to take lots of time to create. The rise of short-form video and its inclusion in many online platforms shows that businesses need to create this type of content if they want to keep up.
In this action planning workshop, we’ll look at the rise of video including making video from your smartphone, livestreaming and short form video like TikToks, Reels and Shorts. We’ll plan video content for your business and get practical so you gain confidence in this exciting new era of video for business.
