Building Client Trust with Effective Video Communication

by | theBlog

“Using video for storytelling and client engagement is a game-changer in any field.”
Envision a world without communication gaps. A world where every nail hammered and every brick laid is not just a part of the process but a part of a story being told through video. Clients won’t just hear about the completion of milestones from a distance; they’ll see and celebrate each milestone, regardless of their location. Misunderstandings would be rare, and questions about progress would be answered before they’re even asked. And for those thinking, “But I’m not building skyscrapers!” don’t worry. It’s not just for the construction industry! Using video for storytelling and client engagement is a game-changer in any field. Whether you’re in manufacturing, landscaping, interior design, or any service-based industry, the power of video can bridge the communication gap between you and your clients. We know because we’ve seen it done and helped our clients do it.

Revolutionizing Client Communication

One of our clients, a contractor in the niche area of waterway restoration and water control structures, faced a universal challenge: keeping their clients engaged and informed. The innovative solution? Their strategic use of drone footage and other technology to create an ongoing visual narrative of the construction process.

The Strategy in Detail

  1. Documenting Every Phase: Utilizing drones and cameras, the contractor captured detailed footage from groundbreaking to completion, offering clients a unique perspective of the project’s evolution.
  2. Regular Video Updates: These updates, shared at consistent intervals, kept clients informed about the progress and intricacies of their projects.
  3. Using Modern Technology for Sharing: By leveraging contemporary apps and digital platforms, the contractor provided clients with easy access to video updates, catering to their need for real-time information.

The Advantages of Video

Video has great benefits, not only as marketing material, but also as a way to make communication less of a headache.

  • Deepened Transparency: Video updates allowed clients to witness the actual progress on-site, bridging the gap between expectation and reality.
  • Enhanced Client Engagement: Compared to traditional reports, videos offered a more dynamic and engaging way to communicate complex project details.
  • Streamlined Communication: Videos served as an efficient medium to convey information, saving time and resources for all parties involved.
  • Detailed Documentation: Videos serve as proof of completion for every stage of the project. If your project relies on completing stages in order to receive pay, then video is a great way to document it. It also can serve as a demonstration that every step of the project was completed to specifications.
  • Increased Trust: It also is a tool that creates trust between you and your clients. The fact that you are willing to share video proof of every step indicates that you are more trustworthy and will set you apart from your competition. And people just love knowing what’s going on with their project- making them feel even more important and special.

Actionable Tips for Creating Impactful Videos

  1. Invest in Quality: High-resolution drones and cameras are essential for capturing clear, professional-grade footage, but that may be an expense that doesn’t live up to it’s potential. Either buy good quality equipment, or hire a good quality team to do the filming and editing.
  2. Tell the Project’s Story: Use voiceovers or on-screen text to guide viewers through each stage of the project, adding context to the visual content.
  3. Maintain Consistency: Set a regular schedule for video updates to maintain client engagement throughout the project lifecycle.
  4. Showcase Key Milestones: Emphasize significant project milestones in your videos, highlighting your team’s achievements and progress.
  5. Choose the Right Sharing Tools: Opt for platforms that are user-friendly and accessible for all clients, ensuring ease of use and widespread accessibility.
  6. Engage in Two-Way Communication: Encourage clients to provide feedback on the videos, fostering a collaborative relationship and continuous improvement in your communication approach.
