How To Make a New Product Launch Video That Actually Helps Your Marketing Campaign


This is the most important new product launch campaign ever for your company. You have invested so much money in meetings, in development, for focus groups, in testing, on the prototype, etc. The production line had to be rebuilt not two, but three times to balance maximum quality and efficiency. Finally, the day is near for announcing your new product to the world. Someone says:

“Let’s just create a basic, straightforward product launch video with no frills, that gives customers the facts."

Wait. What? This is fundamentally important but you want something basic?

White papers are for facts. Tech specs are for facts. FACT sheets are for facts! You can certainly put facts in your product launch video but the point of using a video for your product launch campaign is to tell a story. Your customers want to experience something new. They're bombarded with ads about competing products and companies every day. The best way to rise above that noise is to share your story in a unique and entertaining way. That is what will make it shareable on social media, your website, in commercials... and anywhere else your customers are.

Think about the videos you share or that are shared with you. They probably have one or more of these qualities: emotional, comedic, clever, amazing, cute, or shocking. These are some of the qualities that will make your video stand out.

Once you've chosen a video quality, think about the unique qualities your company and product have. You now have the seed for a great piece.
