How To Use Explainer Videos To Stay Ahead Of Your Competitors
One can make a never-ending list of necessities that are vital to the accomplishment of any business… That may include sales, customer engagement, customer satisfaction, conversions, revenue, profit, etc. But there is one characteristic that can be counted as the most important of all, and that is Customer Loyalty. If you don’t have that, what is the value of your business?
If you don’t have loyalty, all you have left is a poor number of followers who can easily jump from one business to another depending on who’s hotter right now. It can become a problem because every time you need to spend big budgets acquiring new customers rather than to keep existing ones. It goes without saying that existing customers always spend more money than new ones. So if you want to know how to be ahead of your competitors, how to ensure customers’ loyalty to your business, and why explainer videos can boost your business, please continue to read on down below.
The Customer Comes First
Every marketing specialist understands that customers value lies not in the product itself, but what it represents. If you are too caught up with the idea of describing the product, you should be prepared to get low conversion rates. So, if you want to be ahead of your competitors, you should always look at the product from a customer’s point of view. And this is where explainer videos come to the rescue.
No, it doesn’t mean that you should forget about the product, but you should find an interesting approach that will make the customer look at your product in a different way. The way to do that is to bring a simple solution to a problem via colorful and meaningful animated explainer videos. These help the viewer—your potential customer—to see the significance of your service or product. Understanding your customers, being sympathetic to their unique problems, and understanding how your product solves those problems are the basics for creating a loyal customer following.
To demonstrate an in-depth understanding of user needs can be made through video content by making fascinating and educational, or promotional, animated videos, that can highlight the overall value of your product to customers. But, simply creating content isn’t enough, you need to be sure you’re ready to create content that works.

You should also be aware of what your competitors propose and how your specific products or services could help to solve or ease these problems in a simpler way.
