How to Effectively Market Your Event with Video

In today’s digital age, video content is one of the most powerful tools for marketing events. We’ve seen firsthand how effective videos can transform an event's reach and engagement. Whether it's a corporate conference, a community festival, or an educational seminar, here are some strategies to help you harness the power of video to market your event.


1. Pre-Event Teasers

Creating anticipation is key to building excitement for your event. Short teaser videos that give a sneak peek into what attendees can expect are a great way to generate buzz. Highlight keynote speakers, showcase event activities, or provide behind-the-scenes looks at the preparations.


2. Event Announcements

A well-crafted announcement video can effectively convey all the essential details about your event. Include the date, location, agenda highlights, and how to register. Make sure the video is engaging and visually appealing to capture viewers' attention. Well produced talking head videos can be great for announcements.


3. Promotional Campaigns

Leverage video content across your marketing channels to create a cohesive promotional campaign. Share your videos on social media platforms, your website, and through email marketing. Each video should align with your campaign’s overall message and branding.


Example: For the Michigan Technology Conference, we developed a series of promotional videos that were shared across social media platforms. These videos highlighted unique vendors, special exhibits, and testimonials from past attendees, resulting in increased online engagement and ticket sales.


4. Live Streaming

Live streaming allows you to reach a wider audience in real-time. It’s perfect for those who can’t attend in person but still want to be part of the experience. Stream keynote sessions, panel discussions, or special performances to expand your event’s reach.


5. Highlight Reels

Post-event highlight reels are essential for showcasing the success of your event and can be used to promote future events. Capture key moments, attendee interactions, and impactful presentations. A well-edited highlight reel can leave a lasting impression and entice viewers to attend next time.



Example: The highlight reels we created for the Great Lakes Boating Festival captured the energy and excitement of the event.. These reels were used in marketing materials for subsequent festivals.


6. Testimonial Videos

Nothing speaks louder than testimonials from satisfied attendees. Capture short, impactful testimonials during your event and compile them into a video. This provides social proof and builds trust for potential future attendees.



Example: We included testimonials as part of our video for the Michigan Council for Exceptional Children (MCEC) Conference.


7. Engaging Content

Ensure your videos are engaging and high-quality. Use professional videography services to capture stunning visuals and crisp audio. Engaging content is more likely to be shared, increasing your event’s visibility and reach.
