Attracting investors

That is probably your number one priority, are we right?

You’re onto something, and you need to pitch your products and revolutionary breakthroughs to potential investors, raise money and turn your findings into a useful product for the rest of the world to benefit from.

If you’ve gone through pitching stages and have encountered skepticism from investors who don’t believe in the market opportunities you’re highlighting,

Indeed, have you thought about marketing what you offer using videos?

Think about it; what better to simplify your ideas, explain your edge, present your company and your mission as well as your product’s potential than using a concise video?

According to Biteable, 72 %
of customers prefer to learn about a product by watching a video. Besides, 52% of marketers admit video content has the best ROI.

As a result, shooting a well-crafted professional video, telling your story, and using powerful hooks to grab your audience’s attention can significantly help you win over those skeptical investors and increase your bottom line in the long run.

Expanding your Reach

Whether you’re trying to grab potential investors’ or customers’ attention or increase your brand visibility in general, video marketing is the way to go. Why is that, you ask?

Well, a page with a video attracts 300% more traffic on average than a page without a video.

Besides, by 2022, 82% of all consumer internet traffic will be driven by online videos. Now, the more traffic your page receives, the higher your website will rank in search engine result pages.

What’s more, consumers spend on average 2.6 x more time on pages with a video than on a page with written text and images only. The longer a customer spends on your page and the higher you’ll rank on search engine results pages.

As a result, video marketing can significantly help you improve your search engine optimization (SEO), expanding your reach, driving more organic traffic to your page, and helping you reach more potential investors and customers.

Helping your Audience Understand your Offer

As mentioned above, the biotech field is a complex one. And when trying to introduce your offer, it’s easy to get lost in facts, numbers, and data and lose your audience’s attention in the process, leaving them wondering what it is you do exactly. I think you’ll agree, this is far from ideal!

Now, when marketing complex products, an explainer video can be a very powerful tool to capture your audience’s attention and ensure they perfectly grasp your mission, values, and offer. Indeed, using video makes it easier to break down what your business does, the products you offer, and how they can benefit your target market.

In fact, according to a study published on Yansmedia, 80% of consumers believe demo videos are useful tools, helping them better understand a product or service. Besides, 97% of marketers think that explainer videos have helped them better explain their products or services in the past.

Improving your Engagement

When you craft an email you want to send to customers or investors or share a post on your social media platforms, you’d probably like to see engagement and receive responses.

How could you not? Not only does video marketing help you expand your reach, but it’s also a powerful way to increase your click rate, number of shares, and comments.

Indeed, according to WorldStream, social videos (shared on social media platforms) can generate up to 12 times more shares than image or text-based posts. Besides, including a video in your email marketing campaign can improve your click rate by 96%!

If this doesn’t convince you to try video marketing, we don’t know what will 😉

Increasing your Talent Pool

As with any business, your success depends both on your strategic business decisions and on your employees. Finding and recruiting new talent can be a challenging process. But the great news is that video marketing can help you become a talent magnet!
Indeed, a professional video will allow you to create a genuine and deeper connection with your audience. After all, videos will help convey authenticity, showcasing the team beyond the brand and humanizing your company.
Video marketing will also help you better convey what your company stands for, your values, and how working for you can benefit job seekers.
Through videos, potential candidates will get a better understanding of the company culture and the roles you’re advertising for, all before they’ve even set foot in your office.

Who knows, you might also be able to sway highly qualified people who are not looking for a new job but whose interest has been piqued by your incredible video!
