These numbers are enough to convince anyone. However, you might be wondering what kind of video would be suitable for your business.
We understand that it is difficult to figure out what would be suitable when you’re in a business that offers skills and consultancy rather than physical products.
That’s why we’ve made a list of some of the best video marketing ideas for IT and consulting companies.
1. Introductory videos
IT and consulting services both offer strategic advice and technical skills to help other organizations in decision-making.
An introductory video will help you define what your company really does.
Introductory videos include an introduction to your organization, the why and how of its existence, and it can do all of this in a story format that can draw the viewers in. This type of video will help you market your business and give your prospects a better understanding of the services you offer.
This way, they will have an idea of how can they use the services to solve their problems.
An introductory video can be posted on your website and distributed via social media. You can also upload it to your YouTube channel.
Additionally, it is useful during presentations and pitches. During sales meetings, a well-made video can give a great first impression.

2. Videos for different solutions
Whether it’s for communication or solving a technical problem, consultancy services play a huge role in a lot of spaces.
There are IT and consulting services available that can support organizations in running their tasks smoothly and effectively.
Many of these services enable workers to interact with the equipment that facilitates their performance of job-related tasks. And it also helps them communicate better among themselves.
For you to define these solutions, your company needs a video. A video that will explain what kind of services or solutions your company offers.
By watching the video, the audience will get to know if your company offers the kind of solution they are looking for.
You can feature this video on the landing page of your website. A well-made video of your solutions can also be used in a sales meeting and is quite sharable on social media and YouTube.

And that’s why these videos are created to make sure the right audience gets the right message.
These videos communicate to specific audiences, and because of their relevance, you get more engagement.
These kinds of videos are mostly used as paid ads targeted to a niche audience. They’re also great for sales meetings.
You can also use them on dedicated landing pages.
