Video in the Tech Realm
Why technology and software companies need video
Have you ever had to explain some sort of technology to your parents or grandparents?
Now imagine trying to explain some sort of technology through text on a page or an email alone. Things get a lot more complicated without visuals. That is why video is paramount in the tech world.
I’m going to throw 3 statistics at you:
- According to Hubspot, video is extremely important in the decision making process for 90% of users.
- 98% of users say they’ve watched an explainer video to learn more about a product or service.

Product Videos and FAQ Videos are Key
Software and tech companies can benefit from brand videos and testimonial videos just like every industry, but the real power lies in product videos and FAQ videos. Selling an intangible or technologically advanced solution is confusing to many potential customers, so people like to know that they are taken care of.

Hubspot Is Killing It With Video

Don’t worry, you don’t have to develop an entire video academy, but if you do want to, I know this one video marketing company… A few simple videos explaining what your service is and how to use it can go a long way.
