The Top 12 Benefits of a Tailored Video Content Strategy for Gyms, Sports Brands and Clubs, and Personal trainers

  • 1. Creates Clarity

    Videos help to create a clarity around your brand, mission and products. Helping people to connect with your story, what you do, why you do it, and why you’re different in a way that is compelling, clear, and authentic.

  • 2. Leverages the Power of Social Proof

    As humans we are prewired to doubt. To be sceptical. To need proof in order to commit, and the more choice we get, the more proof we need. Social proof is a powerful thing, which is why success stories sell. Nothing instils trust, credibility and authority whilst overcoming objections like powerful testimonial videos or case studies. In fact, when it comes to content marketing, customer testimonials come out on top with an effectiveness rating of 89%. (Social Fresh)

  • 3. Flexible, Cost Effective Training and Communications.

    Using video as part of your training and communications strategy allows you to deliver complex messages and training in a consistent, clear, and cost effective way. Video is the medium preferred by 75% of employees, and with good reason.  Studies show that employees retain 95% of what is shown via video compared to a 10% retention rate for written text.
