What is an interactive video
Interactive video is the future of video consumption. It takes the traditional passive experience of watching a video and transforms it into an active one by allowing viewers to annotate, draw, comment, and ask questions directly on the video. This opens up a whole new world of possibilities for businesses and individuals who want to create engaging and interactive content.
In this post, we will share how customer facing teams within software product companies can create and leverage the power of interactive videos in their workflows.
Benefits of using interactive videos for customer facing teams
SalesSales teams: You are the face of the company, responsible for driving revenue and closing deals. Interactive videos can be a powerful tool for you to provide a more engaging and personalized experience for potential customers. You can benefit from interactive videos by increasing engagement, generating high-quality leads and increasing conversions. Interactive videos allow viewers to actively participate in the video by clicking on links, making selections, and providing input. This can be used to gather information about potential customers, such as feature preferences and problems that resonate.
You can also use interactive videos for personalizing the experience for different segments of your audience. For example, different versions of a video could be created for different industries or personas, to ensure that the content is most relevant and useful to each group.
To get you started, try creating the following today:
  • Product demonstrations: show potential customers how a product works, and highlight its key features and benefits. Send it before the customer meeting as a pre-read or after as a reference material.
  • Interactive leave-behind videos: If you had to dive deep into one particular use case or feature, show the same using an interactive video, where your potential customers can ask you contextual questions.

Marketing teamMarketing teams: You are the product marketing maverick inside your company, responsible for creating a compelling story to introduce your product to your users. You can benefit from using interactive videos to embed them in emails and on social media to share new features with your audience. This can help to increase engagement and drive conversions.
Another benefit of interactive video is that it allows for real-time feedback and data collection, just the two things we all product storytellers want more of. Viewers can leave comments and ask questions directly on the video, which can be used to gather insights on what resonates with your audience and where improvements can be made.
To get you started, try creating the following today:
  • Product explainer videos of your SaaS product, where viewers can ask product-specific questions and get immediate answers
  • Feature walkthrough videos of new workflows within your software product, where viewers can provide feedback on new features, ask questions, and leave suggestions
