Stand Out from your Competition with Client-Centric Videos
“Everybody is creating videos these days.”
Setting Expectations and Standing Out with Client-Centric Videos
Your process is not just a series of tasks; it’s a narrative that tells the story of your dedication to client satisfaction. By showcasing this journey in a video format, you not only set clear expectations for your clients but also differentiate yourself from others in your industry. Whether it’s the meticulous planning phase, the hands-on execution, or the final delivery, each step is an opportunity to connect with your audience and demonstrate the value you bring to the table. The narrative approach in your videos reinforces the idea that you’ve not only thought about your clients but also understand their circumstances, making your solution the right one for them.
Don’t forget the shameless plug! Towards the end of your video, seamlessly integrate a call-to-action encouraging viewers to schedule a consultation, request an estimate or at the very least follow your account. Include a link to your service page, making it easy for potential clients to take the next step.

Addressing Client Pain Points with Client-Centric Videos
To create impactful client-centric videos, identify the processes that matter most to your clients. Look back at past experiences and pinpoint areas where clients may have had the most questions or concerns. When you communicate to them about the pains they are experiencing, you boost your credibility and gain their interest.
- The Start-to-Finish Experience: Walk clients through what to expect from the initiation to the completion of their project or service.
- On-boarding and Wrapping Up: Guide them through the crucial onboarding process or the final steps of concluding their project.
- Feedback Mechanisms: Explain how clients can provide valuable feedback on deliverables and ensure a collaborative working relationship.
- Frequently Asked Questions: Address common queries through video format to streamline communication and reduce client confusion.
Actively seek feedback from clients to continuously improve your videos and address any gaps in communication. Leverage your client reviews from your Google Business Profile or any client surveys to gather valuable insights.
Engaging Your Audience
Creating informative videos is one thing, but keeping them exciting and engaging is another challenge. So many videos lack adequate hooks, and lose the audience with boring content before the video is even halfway over. To ensure your audience stays captivated:
- Use Common Language: Avoid jargon and technical terms. Speak in a language your clients understand to enhance clarity. The easier your video is to understand the more likely people will be to finish the video and share it.
- Maintain a Positive Tone: Keep the atmosphere upbeat, supportive, and positive. Clients should feel encouraged and reassured throughout the video.
- Keep the content fun: You can use small jokes, or entertaining points to help keep the customer listening. But don’t try to force humor or an entertaining story in where it doesn’t belong.
- Consider a Voiceover Actor or AI Voice: If your natural voice isn’t the most engaging or if you’re afraid of getting it wrong, consider professional voiceover services or experiment with AI-generated voices for a polished presentation. It may seem a little strange but it can have a hugely positive impact on your videos.
- Include a Face for Your Brand: Videos that have a personality on camera that speaks to them have higher viewership and are more likely to go viral. So whether you appear yourself or hire a personality to be on camera, having a face associated with your brand will make you far more appealing.
Test different styles and gather feedback from colleagues or trusted clients to fine-tune your video approach.
Maximizing Visibility with Client-Centric Videos
Once you’ve crafted compelling videos, you have to make sure that your audience will see them. You can’t just post them on your obscure YouTube page that only has 10 followers and hope that someone discovers your video. You need to strategically integrate them into your communication channels:
- In Your Marketing: Share snippets or the full videos on your social media, website, and email campaigns to attract and engage potential clients.
- Client Communication: Include video links in emails and proposals to give potential clients an inside look at your processes.
- Onboarding: Kickstart your client relationships by sending them relevant videos during the onboarding process.
- Trade Shows: Use videos as a dynamic background element at trade shows to capture attention and showcase your expertise.
Monitor analytics to understand which platforms yield the best results, allowing you to refine your video distribution strategy.
The power of client-centric videos lies not only in the information they convey but in the emotions they evoke. By strategically integrating these videos into your processes, you’ll not only enhance client understanding but also set yourself apart as a service professional or contractor who goes the extra mile.
