What is a demo video?

A demo video is an eye-catching, informative mini film that breaks down your product’s features, uses and key benefits into a digestible format. It’s about enabling prospects to see their challenges resolved with your solution.

Demos do the heavy lifting for your marketing. They help your brand earn trust whilst also highlighting how your product fits the bill like no other. It’s a strategic look at your product, and could cover everything from user experience to how it integrates with other systems. Demos ensure your audience gets the full picture, understands USPs, and ends up exactly where you want them – ready to buy.

Using demo animation gives your business an edge, allowing you to clearly communicate value and stand out in a crowded marketplace.

Our process

We dive into your brief and truly get to know your brand. We learn about and analyse your key messages, which helps to pinpoint the perfect, most impactful angle for your video.

Now, armed with insight, we bring our creatives and strategists together for a brainstorm. We come up with concepts, from the understated to the utterly wild. Once we have the perfect idea, we’ll present it to you.

Once you’re happy, we get going on the production. We write the script, sketch the storyboards, craft voiceovers, and frame the style – making sure every element aligns with your brand.

Time to deliver your new video. But we don’t stop there: we build time for feedback and edits into our production process.

A standout video needs a standout distribution strategy. We can help you to map out the ultimate video marketing plan, guiding you towards your goals with precision.

Our demo video production tips

Even in a demo video, it’s important that you show the user how the product will benefit them, rather than just listing its features – they are far more likely to engage with something that solves a problem for them.

Your viewer might come to your demo video after identifying a new problem. That means they may be completely unaware of industry jargon. So the language you use in your guide should be tailored to their level of understanding.

Your product will no doubt evolve over time, which means your demo video strategy will need some built-in flexibility. Don’t make your videos so complex and high-end that updates are expensive and take ages to produce.

It’s essential to understand where the typical viewer is in your buyer’s journey. If your demo video is a mid-funnel piece of content designed to convert trial users, it will need to take a different approach to a video designed to showcase a new product feature to existing customers.

Except that it does. Just because someone has signed up for a trial of your product or service, doesn’t mean they will be willing to dedicate two hours to watching a painstaking walk-through of the entire thing. Focus on the best bits and save the rest for after the close.

It’s always a good idea to break your product features and benefits into smaller chunks and produce a series of demo videos to enable your users to easily pick and choose the most relevant bits for them.
