Corresponding video content can only be produced and optimized with this knowledge. As trivial as the question of the target group is, it is also a basic requirement to put yourself in the shoes of the target group and potential customers and to determine which interests and problems they have to deal with.

Use videos to define and describe your service. Explain procedures, goals and the advantages of working with you as a service provider.
Blog articles, white papers, studies
Written and informative content such as blog articles, whitepapers or studies that are provided on your website are further ideal content for videos. In most cases, a topic research has already taken place at these points, so that the probability of the target group being interested in a video is present.
The importance of the topic of “recruiting” has increased enormously in recent years. In order to find new good employees, traditional job advertisements are usually no longer sufficient.
