You can also celebrate holidays or annual events and use them as a way to promote your business.

Video marketing is powerful across platforms, and when you take the time to make videos, you can share them in a variety of ways and get a lot of use out of them. One way to create video content is by gearing it toward tutorials. You can show how to use your products or give tips on a certain topic.

  • video reviews from your satisfied customers
  • behind-the-scenes of your business
  • co-host live streams events

Explainer videos can be similar to tutorials. When you’re promoting your business indirectly by providing information or knowledge, it creates a sense of trust with your audience.

Creating infographics gives you a unique type of content you can share on different platforms.
