OVERVIEW – THE EASY PRODUCT DEMO VIDEO
Maybe you’ve launched a brand new product. Maybe you’re introducing an updated feature. Or maybe your inbox is overflowing with the same question from dozens of customers. How do I get your product to do this? What’s that for? Am I doing it right? No matter your motivation – The Easy Product Demo Video is your solution. Answer inquiries, put your beloved item (or service) on display, share knowledge, and ensure that buyers experience your product the way you intended.
STEP ONE: Decide what you plan to show (or show off) in your easy product demo video. A quick once-over of the whole product? A tricky feature spotlight? New element update? If you’re interested in a big reveal – consider an unboxing demo video. (Check out our earlier post, Growth Tactic #24: Unboxing Your Brand: The Video.)
STEP TWO: Dig deep to uncover your screenwriting skills – because it’s time to create your video script. Make sure to include prompts along with dialogue, so you know when to show what as you speak. And remember to keep your video super short and extra sweet.
STEP THREE: Review the resources and tools below, and decide which will help you achieve your demo video goals. Will you be filming using a smart phone or camera and in need of an editing tool? Or will you be taking a screen recording of an online demonstration? Choose your tools. Film. Make it live. After you upload your new recording, promote it to your email list and share with social media fans.
