The Perfect Home Page Video (Part 1): The Credibility Video

I just wrapped a 5-day Personal Branding Workshop with my Mastery students and one of the things we did together was script and film their home page videos.  I gotta say they came out FABULOUS! 🙂

The right video can keep new visitors on your site for minutes longer… long enough to build a relationship and inspire someone to take an action that builds your business. But the wrong video can send them scurrying away as fast as they arrived.

So it’s important to choose your first words wisely.

Video is the future of marketing and 52% of marketing professionals say that video has the best ROI of all content. It’s estimated that video will account for 79% of global internet traffic by the year 2020…

So if there’s one important skillset to learn, it’s video.

I was a documentary film directory in my first career, so I have a huge passion for video and taught my Mastery students 13 different kinds of videos they could use in their video.

They each mixed and matched to come up with a home page video that would quickly position them and their business… then we workshopped the scripts and storyboarded how we wanted to bring each story to life.

I was so impressed by their work that I wanted to share their videos with you and highlight a few important kinds of videos you may want to play with.

The first kind of video is what I call the credibility video. While it starts off with a question that connects with what the visitor wants, it quickly pivots to what the company provides.

These videos build credibility and connection by sharing three or more of the following:
• social proof (i.e. client stories or successes)
• an origin story of why you went into business
• personal or professional accomplishments
• core values or beliefs

Along the way, the video positions the business, products or services so by the time you get to the call to action at the end, it’s super compelling to want to sign up.

Let me give you two examples.

The first is from my student Bret Gregory, founder of Attract Customers Now.

As you watch this notice that we’re using 2 cameras to create more dynamism and intercutting each video with b-roll (or supplemental footage to build visual interest). While this takes a little more production and editing, it produces a higher-quality result.

The second credibility video is from my student Jesse Krieger, founder of Lifestyle Entrepreneurs Press.

Now that you’ve seen the videos, I thought you might want to read the scripts to see exactly what they did and what made these videos so effective.

Please leave a comment at the bottom of this post and let me know what resonated about these videos and what ideas you want to bring into your own videos.

Also stay tuned because in Part 2 of the post I’m going to share the Story Video.

Bret’s Script

Do you want better results from your Facebook ads?  More Likes, Leads, & Customers? Do you have a 7-figure business but your Facebook Likes, Traffic, Leads and sales don’t reflect that at all? 

Hi I’m Bret Gregory, founder of Attract Customers Now, the first Viral Facebook ads agency specializing in creating viral Facebook ads for purposed based businesses. 

 Take my client, Christian Mickelsen a purposed based business coach who we ran were able to create over $90,000 in sales in three months for his online coaching product called “Free Sessions that Sell.”  Or like my client Melinda Cohen, founder of the Coaches’ Console, helping purpose based coaches, who we did over $74,000 in sales in just two weeks for their launch of their “Easy Breezy Coaching Business Software.”  

The difference between us and other Facebook ads agencies is that we only work with purposed based business and we specialize in creating viral Facebook ads for you.  If you want your customers to like, comment and most importantly SHARE your ads, then you need to create ads that are “Sharable.” 

We create ads for you that are highly “shareable” and gets results. – Like for our client Nicole Moore, a Love Coach where we created an ad that got more Likes, comments and shares than she ever had before, but more importantly led to her first $100,000 sales month ever 

 My Core personal belief is that Results speak louder than words.  Let us show you results that you can take to the bank.   Within every business there is a highly sharable message that converts, let me help you find and create yours. 

 I believe you have a story that can inspire your audience to engage, share and click and buy from your ad.  On this website, you’ll find businesses just like yours who we’ve been able to get them more Likes, Leads, and customers from Facebook than ever before all at a profit.  

If you have a similar purposed based business and want to sign up for a one on one call with me to see if you are a fit for our ad agency then click on the schedule button to book a call and let’s get started Attracting Customers Now for your business from Facebook. 

Jesse’s Script

We believe that your story, strategies and accumulated experience has the ability to transform readers lives around the world – That you can reach people you’ve never met, in places you’ve never been and make a positive impact on their lives with your book.

And I would know, after writing and releasing my book Lifestyle Entrepreneur in two continents with two different publishers, I learned the difference between publishers that care… and those that don’t. Through it all I managed to become a best-selling author and build a 6-figure business based on my book and ultimately found my career and calling in helping authors navigate the perilous publishing path.

    I am not a person who can memorize things easily. How to I glance at a script and look more natural at the same time. I had this problem in the 21 day challenge and with any video I do. Thanks for always sharing the details that help look like it’s effortless, when it isn’t!

      Sharon – you can use a teleprompter, whether it’s an over-the-screen one or a cell phone one that you hold next to the camera.

            I came across PromptSmart and tried it out…it keeps pace, starts and stops when you stop.
            As a video-phobe, I have the same issue of memorization and this is one of those things holding me back.
            So happy to have found you Marisa! put in my application for the Mentorship program 😉 xoxo

          For a short presentation, just print out your speech with a really BIG font (on multiple sheets of paper), and have a friend stand next to the camera and show you the pages as you speak. A human-powered voice-activated prompter! If you’re using a lav mic, they can just drop the spoken pages on the floor…
