  • Monitor Progress
  • Provide Client Updates
  • Maintain Visual Library of All Projects
  • Utilize for Marketing Purposes
  • Highlight Products or Services
  • ...and so much more!


Read on for the benefits of construction video marketing and how it will drive more business.

Why use video to market your construction business?

First, people simply prefer consuming content via video. Watching a time lapse video of a construction project from start to finish is engaging and impressive. Or watching interesting phases from a major build out adds interest to your website, blog posts or social media content.

Video makes for a more engaging medium with which to turn your project into a story. Combine that with the fact that YouTube is now the second most popular search engine, and the fact that people like to use their mobile gadgets to watch videos - and it paints a clear picture. Web-based videos of your company, team and projects can help build brand recognition and can show prospective clients what you offer in a way that text and pictures simply can’t.

Plus, once you’ve developed a robust video library of your projects, you’ll have endless original content to pull from for future marketing needs.


Secondary benefits of capturing video of your projects.

Capturing video of your project is an amazing way to keep clients engaged, informed and happy. By providing in-progress updates, they’ll get a visual of the work that has taken place. They’re able to potentially use this content in their own marketing efforts. Here’s a fantastic example of this in which the videos were used to update and keep both the client and the public interested on the progress.

If that’s not enough, we recently wrote about the fact that video aids in construction site security efforts. If utilizing a solution like our Construction Packs, you could make your video efforts work even harder for you. Time lapse can allow for a snapshot of nearly every stage of the project. And if you add a motion detector to your kit, it’s like having a digital security guard on your site while cameras aren’t running.

Video marketers get 66% more qualified leads per year.

Video marketing also improves the search engine optimization of your website. Integrating video into your website will help boost your page rank. Not to mention, the video content itself will help keep your audience on your site for longer- which further increases SEO. The impact that video content can have on your business and it’s SEO really shouldn’t be underestimated. In fact, according to Forrester, you are 50x more likely to show up on page one of Google if you have a video embedded on your website.

Plus, as we mentioned above, YouTube is the second largest search engine. If you house your videos on this powerful, popular platform, you’ll get additional views and increased awareness with very little effort.
