What is an About Us Video?

Simply put, an ‘About us’ video is where you talk about your company, who you are, and what you do. On the surface, it’s a simple video with little cost yet fantastic value. A well thought out About Us will work wonders for your brand. 

Your ‘About Us’ is a great chance to tell your story. How did you start? Why are you doing this? What makes you get out of bed every day and run your business? Show that passion and drive to everyone. It’s an opportunity to set yourself apart from your competitors and explain why and how you do things differently. It’s also a great place to break the barriers between you and your customer, showing the real person/people behind the brand and not just a faceless corporation. 

Finally, it’s the perfect place to showcase your values, what do you stand for? More than ever people want to make sure they are buying from places that care about how they treat their employees, the planet and people around them.
