Lights, Camera, Engagement – How Online Video is Changing Healthcare

Action, action! Read all about it! 2017 is the year of video marketing and the year has kicked off in full force. With more than 60% of marketers and small business owners increasing investment in video marketing this year, video is proving itself as the essential instrument for influence in 2017. One of the industries being affected by the increase in video marketing is the health industry.

Healthcare in Video

While many relied on articles for promoting information in the last few decades, video has now taken over as the key correspondent of information. Healthcare can be a dry and difficult industry to understand for laymen. AJ Agrawal, contributor to Forbes says, “the reason people are drawn to videos is the ability to visually understand specific topics. This clearly works well for health industry startups where everything from various wellness and medical conditions can be explained in an easier to digest way illustrating how a new product or service can work for a health-related problem.” Concepts Video has created dozens of how-to medical videos, clearly demonstrating how a product works in an entertaining and informative fashion.

Why Video?

Agrawal says, “besides using new formats and types of video production you’re your health industry startup, your video marketing campaign has to focus on the same things your other content marketing tactics have done if they are to resonate with your audience, build trust, inspire them to share it, and have them return again and again to you as their expert.” Concepts Video has relied on a winning formula for TV commercials for years so it’s no wonder that we have adapted our engaging prescription for online video.

What Types of Video Should We Use?

With an ever-changing environment of platforms, it can be confusing as to what types of videos companies should be producing. Agrawal advises, “whether it is live streaming, an ephemeral video, or an animated video, your video content must show that you understand and have identified your audience’s health-related problem and pain points. Then it must educate them and provide an effective solution. Finally, include a call-to-action that incites urgency and pushes them to act on what they see in the video.”
