What is a SaaS Promo Video

A SaaS promo video can be a potent weapon in a software business’s video marketing arsenal. A well-produced SaaS promo video can attract potential customers, hold their attention, engage with them, and encourage them to try or buy a new SaaS product or service by appealing to their emotions.

SaaS Promo videos are increasingly being used by Software-as-a-Service businesses to inform potential clients about their products and services, to announce a new service or event, or demonstrate a product.

Before we move on to our industry peers and their SaaS promo video portfolios, here is a brief introduction to:

Making a video for B2B & SaaS products needs a different mindset.

Benefits of a SaaS promo video using a case study

In testimonial videos, customers speak about how the company’s product or service helped them successfully solve a problem. Therefore, SaaS promo videos help:

  • Create a positive image for the SaaS company and its products.
  • Build trust as it is clients themselves sharing their experience.
  • Humanize the brand and demonstrate the usefulness of the SaaS.
  • The leads make the next move because now they can relate to an actual customer talking about how your product solved their problems.
  • Control the narrative of the product and the brand’s story, share on social media, and increase the chances of the video going viral.
  • Attract new referrals for trials and build trust and credibility for a SaaS company.

Why Video Marketing is key to growing your Software-as-a-Service business and why should they use SaaS Promo videos

Video marketing is growing in influence with both SaaS businesses and consumers. As people are watching more videos than ever before, businesses need to consider making SaaS promo videos to show potential customers their brand, products, and services.

SaaS Promo videos are very visual, so that helps to connect with people:

  1. They allow people to easily watch and remember the content.
  2. They are useful in helping to explain complicated concepts.
  3. The video summarizes complex ideas and makes them easy to understand.
  4. They can help improve the search engine ranking for the website.
  5. They can help get more visitors to a website.
  6. They help increase brand awareness.
  7. They can increase customer interest.
  8. They help increase engagement with customers.
  9. They help improve conversions.

Now that we have the formalities out of the way, it is time to look at:

2. Thinkmojo

Clients: Google | Twitter | LinkedIn | Zendesk

For a company with a clientele that is the “Who’s who” of the corporate world, Thinkmojo’s website looks rather plain. They obviously believe in letting their work do the talking. And Thinkmojo richly deserves to be on our list of the Best Promo Video companies on the strength of their work!

Work Example: This video created for Slack is a part of a series of videos that addressed the core question every SaaS business needs to answer.

Using Remote Video Testimonials as SaaS Promo videos

Did you know that in addition to the regular SaaS promo videos, you can use remote video testimonials to promote your business?

Here is an example from our portfolio featuring Arianna Gonzales, Growth Marketing Strategist at Lawcus, the Legal Practice Management software company that streamlines your CRM and Client intake, leaving you to focus solely on your clients.

Making a video for B2B & SaaS products needs a different mindset.

Here Ms. Gonzalez talks about their apprehensions before they hired us. They were concerned about the video content not being effective, having no impact on their user base, or showing no improvement in conversion rates.

Here is the testimonial after we delivered the video:

“We now have less people asking questions, because they know exactly what our product does. We also have a higher conversion rate since doing the onboarding video with Content Beta.” – Arianna Gonzales, Growth Marketing Strategist, Lawcus

We are thankful for the opportunity to work for Lawcus and happy to have delivered on our promise.

Conclusion

Before we wrap up, let us recap what makes these Promo Video companies the best and sets them apart from the rest.

  • Firstly, they make videos that are interesting and engaging using a well-written script. They know they can only command one or so minutes of someone’s time. So, they hook them with engaging content that grabs viewers’ attention and makes them want to know more.
  • Secondly, they make visually appealing videos. They understand that the better the video looks, the more impressed the viewer will be. They make short, fast-loading videos, which ensures the viewer will not give up and leave.
  • Thirdly, they make their videos technically sound, well compressed, and of good clarity. They know if the viewer struggles to see what they are watching, then it is likely that they will not stay long enough to see what they have to say.
