THE NEXT NORMAL: 2021 Video Predictions
Everything we do will revolve around building and enhancing our experiences, not just to gain the sale the first time.
The pandemic has been…isolating. So business getting ahead in 2021 will evolve by creating a sense of belonging. Video is the one powerful tool that can build a relationship quickly with your customers, community and prospects to nurture belonging.
- Telling authentic stories via video will be the next normal trend
Authentic stories give access to your brand, create brand awareness and highlights your brand personality. Brand Awareness means creating videos that show who you are, your core culture and what you offer. Use stories to show up consistently with clarity and conviction in your messages.
Access to your brand with video means creating a video (s) that explains how your company works. It can be a produced company “video business card” like this one about how our company works:
- Crafting a video strategy around what people like to buy from you.
This involves creating an authentic mobile video series demonstrating each product/service. It doesn’t need to be complicated, like this one we recorded in one take as part of a series with a vacuum and sewing store owner featuring his extensive inventory.
- Creating videos for e-commerce that bring products to life vs. a photo.
Let’s explore your best authentic stories and products to create a sense of belonging with video for your prospects and customers.

- Adding video landing pages that build the tone and vibe you want and reduce heavy text on a page. People like watching an engaging videos more than reading. Engaging is the key.
Example: a video landing page for the construction industry
- Using video stories to build trust, transparency and community will be the next normal. Brands will need to focus on using stories in social media to reach three core areas:
- Consideration: using stories from your current customers and the support of the community you’ve built. In story videos, letting your audience speak on your behalf will trend.
- Using a video in emails to personalize your approach in the inbox, to build relationships faster and to help clarify your messages.
- Using video/Gifs that help you stand out in personalized social replies
- In 2021, video will be included in content marketing strategies. More videos will be added to LinkedIn profiles as well as shared in the newsfeed. But there are some limits: keep video uploads under 10 minutes and add captions to them.
In other words, the next normal for video will be about stories to post that enhance the authenticity, transparency and inclusive feeling of your business and you.
Yes, you have great business stories to tell. And we love telling and sharing them with video/mini-movies. Let’s create the next normal in video together. Contact Diane to plan and begin: firstname.lastname@example.org
