Types of Videos for Youtube

August 29, 2014

Why would you have to create different videos?  Well, different videos have different purposes. Let’s take for example, you wouldn’t use a sales video every week on Youtube because people will think you are pitching, or place a consumer awareness guide on a sales page, because you’d be giving away the product people are paying for.

Types Of Videos For Youtube

  • Informational Content or Tips and Tricks video: these are used to deliver information and tips to your viewers. Mostly used for Youtube and exactly what you are watching right now.
  • The About Us story or Cornerstone video: it helps convey your company’s background, history or story and why people should use your company.
  • Social proof / testimonial / case study video: this is the best way to show what your customers think of your products and services. It’s a great way to indirectly sell.
  • The Demo / Tutorials / how to video:  these are usually step by step instructions showing how to use your products or services and normally are very “how to” driven.
  • Pre-launch / trailer videos: great for a product launch or just letting your audience know what is coming up in the next video on Youtube. Also, it’s very effective in creating social buzz. Another thing you may want to do, is Youtube let’s you create a trailer video for your Youtube Channel, so I highly recommend creating one.
  • Sales or Promo Video: these videos are used to promote and sell your products or services usually on a landing page or your website.
