Corporate Communications There is no better way to promote a new product than to capture the enthusiasm of the product manager as he describes the main features and benefits. Our video productions are scripted ahead of time and can be shot at your facility or, to keep costs down, at major industry exhibitions. Existing video footage, photos or other assets can be edited into the final film for your use at trade shows, on your website or to give your sales team. The video is also hosted on the Global Solar Technology website and distributed via our e-newsletters.
70% of adult Internet users watch videos online, according to a recent Pew survey.
Tips and Solutions series Your products and services solve problems every day. Let potential customers see how, and help current customers get the most out of their purchase, with a series of tips and solutions video clips that can be posted to your website, globalsolartechnology.com, YouTube, and anywhere else videos can be uploaded. Make them part of an email campaign. Distribute them at trade shows on DVD or USB flash drives. Product training videos Getâ€”and keepâ€”customers up and running with their new equipment by providing an instructional video on the use, maintenance and troubleshooting of your products.
Product overviews/demos A product overview or demo can act as an in-depth commercial for your products. Perfect for new product introductions.
