If you want my team at Content Beta to help you improve product usage, just book a call.
Before we look at some of the best examples of B2B SaaS videos, let’s recognize that SaaS has become ubiquitous and almost an industry standard.
What seems to be working for them is the business model they have adopted, which has made it easier for SaaS providers to offer their cloud-based services to subscribers by charging affordable subscription fees. And users are warming up to the idea too.
SaaS business models reduce the complexity of using software, which is usually the reason why customers avoid desktop applications and hosted services.
According to Gartner,
Worldwide Public Cloud Services end-user spending forecast for 2022 is a cool USD145.38 billion dollars.
For 2020, it was USD102.8 billion dollars and USD122.63 billion dollars for 2021.
It is probably safe to say that one can now access every type of tool for tasks, including client management, data analysis, HR, SEO, and more.
The next section describes the most commonly used SaaS products and the main providers:
|Productivity tools||A cloud-based platform that tracks employee productivity and helps in planning work schedules efficiently.||Trello, Slack, Evernote, and Asana|
|CRM Software||Used by salespeople to make it easier for their clients to find, qualify, and purchase their products.||Salesforce, Microsoft Dynamics and SugarCRM|
|Accounting Software||They facilitate the recording and reporting of financial transactions.||QuickBooks and Peachtree|
|Lead Management Software||Enterprise software that integrates with other business software to organize and manage sales leads.||Leadfeeder, Pipedrive, and HubSpot Lead Management|
|Social Media Management Software(SMMS)||SMMS allows organizations to track, document, and evaluate the effectiveness of their social media activities across channels.||Zoho, Sprout Social, and Hootsuite|
Let’s now look in detail at some video examples:
Created back in 2014, which seems like an eon ago considering the frenetic pace of technological advancements, we thought this video stood out for its sheer simplicity.
A plain-looking product interface and unhurried voice-over calmly explaining how to use the application manage to reassure the users that they will be able to use the product on offer without having to refer to a bunch of documentation.
Businesses can use RudderStack to consolidate all their customer data, which is typically stored and managed in multiple places, in order to gain a holistic view of their customers.
Watch the video here to see how Content Beta was able to address their three main concerns:
Perfecting onboarding: Showcasing and explaining features that helped them differentiate themselves from the competition by making feature adoption easy, ‘wow’ the viewer, and easily communicating the use-case of the tool.
Meeting Social media needs: Company was founded in 2019 and concentrated mostly on building a superior product, and later realized how important it was to grow it with value-added content.
Podcasts FTW: Rudderstack’s ‘The Data Stack show‘, is a podcast for engineers by the engineers which boasts of a great lineup of guests, and they wanted to distribute a shorter form of the valuable content for distribution over several channels.
As Lawcus’s customers are legal practitioners, it was important that the onboarding video was easy to understand even for people without a technical background.
In the end, Content Beta was able to deliver an elegant and effective video that managed to reduce customer support tickets and increase user adoption, winning all-around praise for the quality of work, flexibility, and turnaround time.
Wix can be credited with demystifying website construction and making it accessible for non-technical people, along with other players like Weebly and Squarespace.
They had their job cut out, however, in convincing people that it was easy for them to use the drag and drop components feature to build pages and websites.
In this video, they demonstrate how to add and manage videos on your site, building up the excitement as they go about it. Users are convinced how they can replicate what was shown in the video themselves and without having to write a single line of code.
This video could not be any simpler. It starts by addressing the frustration faced by Shopify stores who spend considerable amounts of time, money, and resources only to see as many as 98% of the visitors leaving without making a purchase.
The video manages to catch the undivided attention of their target audience in under 15 seconds, which it proceeds to capitalize on without further ado by telling them how to retain customers using Personizely features.
The graphics are eye-pleasing, and the narration is smooth. Customer testimonials and a prominent Call-to-Action (CTA) do the rest. Powerful stuff!
It sounds like almost a sacrilege to not mention the venerable and all-pervasive Google in any technical article, and this guide is no exception.
The explainer video uses the product screen beautifully to demonstrate User Experience (UX) like never before.
And users seem to have lapped up the concept because the video has notched up 10.25 million views so far since it was launched back in 2014.
Asana animated explainer video created using animated screen mock-ups is a delight to watch.
Beautiful illustrations, pleasing background music, and fun characters are blended together to near-perfection to help demonstrate the product effectively.
In short, the video focuses its attention on Asana’s new feature ‘Timeline’. The result is a non-stop action-filled ride.
DirectIQ offers an easy-to-use email marketing interface that delivers results. Users can sign-up for free without a credit card and immediately start sending email campaigns.
They needed a perfect onboarding video to educate their customers on how to use their product in order to improve product adoption by explaining the advantages of their product to their customers better.
The company wanted the content to showcase their product, provide viewers with a personalized experience, and demonstrate to them how easy it was to use.
Kissflow automates day-to-day business processes and tracks their performance. From leave requests to purchase orders, Kissflow helps initiate process requests, view items that require user actions, and approve pending tasks.
Their main requirements were:
Perfecting onboarding: As there is a considerable learning curve, it was important to produce results at the earliest to keep the motivation levels of learners high.
Updates to the application: Introduction of newer versions and improvements meant that the training material including help docs, knowledge base articles, and video courses needed an overhaul. The training team had to manage time between live training and producing new content with tight deadlines to meet.
The USD550 course has seen 5000 plays, 75% course completion rates, and 275 viewing hours in a short amount of time.
The under 1-minute video wastes no time in listing out an organization’s worst nightmares, collaborative work, scattered resources, and wasted time, money, and resources many companies have to face to make even the simplest of things work as they should.
It uses simple graphics and an unhurried narration to explain how it could be managed better using Confluence. With nearly 3 million views, it is safe to say that the short video has hit the mark perfectly.
