2. Company’s Journey

Every company has a story to tell. Tell the story of your business success in a motivational video.

It doesn’t have to be a full-length documentary – think of the milestones of your journey that made the biggest impact on the business. Maybe your video will inspire one of your followers to reconsider their own professional journey – who knows?

3. Customer Success Story

It’s hard to think of something more relatable to an audience than a motivational story of one of your customers. According to Fan & Fuel survey, 97% of consumers claim that customer reviews influence their buying decisions. A success story of one of your real customers could be the most convincing customer review ever.

Illuminate the human side of your business by creating a video with real people that use and love your product. Let them share their unique experience – your audience will appreciate that.

It goes without saying that knowing who your potential customers are is a crucial thing for any business. And if you know your customers, you know exactly what will make them feel better. Create a video that empowers, uplifts, and praise them.

Show your audience that you care about them, and they will make it worth your while. Dove does a great job with that:

6. Holiday Inspiration

Give your audience a chance to celebrate a holiday with you. It can be a massive holiday like Christmas or a funny local one like National Wine Day!

There are tons of uplifting and inspiring GIFs on the web, you just have to find the one that fits your business the most. Another way is to create your own unique gif with a tool like Giphy or Gifmaker.

Nothing uplifts a person more than the feeling of being appreciated.
