Whiteboard Videos

Whiteboard Videos

Artists, graphic designers, or people good with a marker draw on a whiteboard to successfully explain a point, process, or product in a visually attractive way. As they create, the video camera is tracking their every move.

Some companies use this type of content for corporate video training because they can have a stronger impact than reading a handbook or watching someone read from a script. But you don’t have to limit it to training videos. Whiteboard content can work for almost anything that can be illustrated.

Ephemeral posts

Ephemeral posts

Ephemeral content, also known as time-restricted content, is a great way to help your brand stay fresh for your target audience. The visual content’s short life span (up to 24 hours) taps into your followers’ FOMO (fear of missing out) on something interesting.

Instagram and Facebook Stories are the most popular examples because they disappear a day after they’re posted. This style of content is especially useful for taking followers behind the scenes, reading the room, seeing what people are talking about, etc.
