There are plenty of ways to establish the presence of your video production services. Here’s our top pick of ways to generate leads and promote your company.

Grow your website

A website is a must for a video production service as it is the first point of contact with most clients – and you know what they say about first impressions. If you’ve got an impressive website up and running, which has eye-catching aesthetics, clients will be lining up to book your services.

In the creative industry, websites are a great judge of the company’s creative vision. So a well-designed website can give clients a feel of what your general style looks like. Complete your website with the full monty – portfolio, contact information, client testimonials and an FAQ section, to improve your client’s journey.  


Build an impressive portfolio

There’s no better way of getting a client on board than showcasing the work you can achieve. Clients will judge you by what they see, so instead of writing down your achievements, build a solid portfolio of work. 

Make sure to emphasise your style in the portfolio as this is what sets your work apart. You can create a gallery of videos on your website and maybe post a short video or two on social media to give people a taste.

Create a number of showreels to highlight your skills and creativity, and keep adding more as your library of work grows. Create a YouTube channel (just one of many social media options) and apply SEO techniques to that as well (see below). YouTube is the world’s second-largest search engine, after Google.

Leverage social media

The most underestimated marketing tool that connects billions worldwide is social media. If you’re not using it to boost your video production services, then you are losing business. 

Social media provides extended reach and makes your production services discoverable to a large population who didn’t even know they needed you. Using the paid ad tools available makes your business especially prominent online. Don’t forget to link your website on all your social media pages.

How’s your ranking on search engines? SEO algorithms look for valuable combinations of content that can answer search queries. But video production websites are often very visual and less textual. To improve your SEO ranking start putting up videos – but don’t ignore your text content. 

Ensure you follow SEO guidelines and optimise your content to include keywords in the title, description and tags.
