5 Types of Marketing Videos to Elevate Your Brand

In today’s fast-paced digital world, video marketing is an indispensable tool for businesses. Whether you’re a startup or an established company, videos can help you connect with your audience, tell your story, and showcase your products or services. As a video production company, we at SkipperFilms are dedicated to helping you harness the power of video marketing. Here are five essential types of marketing videos that can transform your brand’s presence and engage your audience.

1. Brand Videos

The first and most crucial type of video we recommend is a Brand Video. This video serves as a representation of your entire brand to your target market. It’s designed to touch on every aspect of your company in a friendly, casual, and welcoming tone. The goal is to get your audience to fall in love with your company as a whole, not just your product. Typically, a brand video is two minutes or less, making it concise yet impactful.
Key Elements:

  • Engaging narrative
  • Overview of your company’s mission, values, and culture
  • Personal and relatable tone

2. Specific Product/Offering Videos

Once potential customers are intrigued by your brand video and are on your site, the next step is to provide them with Specific Product or Offering Videos. These videos delve into the details of your products or services, explaining their features, benefits, and how they can solve your customers’ problems. These videos can be slightly longer to ensure all necessary information is covered, because remember, you’ve already captured their attention with your brand video. Now, it’s time to impress them with the specifics.
Key Elements:

  • Detailed product/service information
  • Demonstrations or tutorials
  • Customer testimonials or case studies

3. Recruitment/Company Culture Videos

If you’re looking to grow your team, Recruitment or Company Culture Videos are invaluable. These videos can be showcased at job fairs, posted on LinkedIn, or featured on your careers page. To create these videos, we spend a day following your employees to capture a “day in the life” feel. The result is a fun, welcoming video that helps potential employees get a genuine sense of your company culture, what it’s like to work there every day on the backend, and make an informed decision about joining your team.
Key Elements:

  • Real-life employee experiences
  • Insight into company culture
  • Highlighting benefits and perks of working at your company

4. Highlight/Recap Videos

Highlight or Recap Videos are perfect for events, conferences, or live gatherings. Unlike planned productions, these videos are made up of B-roll clips and interviews filmed candidly to capture authentic interactions. The unpredictability of live events brings a unique, genuine feel to these videos, making them an excellent way to showcase the essence and excitement of your events.
Key Elements:

  • Candid footage and interviews
  • Authentic interactions
  • Energetic and engaging recap of the event

5. Social Media Reels

The last type of video is your Social Media Reel, ideal for platforms like Facebook and Instagram. These videos are designed to be flashy, fun, and attention-grabbing in a very short amount of time. Any longer, and you risk losing your audience’s attention. Unlike the polished approach needed for other video styles, reels can afford to be a bit rough around the edges, as their lifespan on social media is brief. The idea is to create new reels frequently to keep your content fresh and engaging.
Key Elements:

  • Short, attention-grabbing content
  • Flashy and fun visuals
  • Regular updates to maintain engagement


Incorporating these five types of marketing videos into your strategy can significantly enhance your brand’s visibility, engagement, and overall success. At SkipperFilms, we have vast experience in each one of these, and can guide you in the right direction based on your needs.
