Using corporate social responsibility videos in your business’ content is a great way to connect with potential customers. In short, these videos are an opportunity for businesses to show how they are positively impacting society.
Tell Your Brand’s Story
Corporate social responsibility videos allow you to market more than just your business’ products and services. These forms of content work well as vessels for information on your company’s actions.
When you use corporate social responsibility videos in your content, it raises awareness about the type of business and your brand values. When consumers feel they share your values, they’re more likely to be converted to customers by marketing efforts.
Being honest with consumers is key to building trust too. This can be done by using corporate social responsibility videos as storytelling tools. The result is that potential customers can see the timeline of progress for your business. This builds an understanding of why you do what you do and why you care about it.
Therefore, corporate video production services will typically involve delving into your company records and identifying meaningful bits of information.
Why Your Brand Need CSR Videos
Corporate social responsibility videos can be highly effective at growing and developing your brand. This is partly because video content is a format that connects deeply with its audience. It’s more than that, though.
The good-willed nature of corporate social responsibility videos means that they effectively boost your brand image. The addition of these videos to your content strategy demonstrates that your business cares about its community, as well as its place within society at large.
When your brand is recognised as positively contributing to society or your industry, it allows run-of-the-mill marketing content to be more effective. This is because your corporate social responsibility videos add weight to any claims you might make regarding the excellence of your products and services.
When your audience believes your content comes from a credible source, they’re more likely to be converted into loyal customers.

Corporate Social Responsibility Videos FAQs
Which themes are used in corporate social responsibility videos?
When it comes to demonstrating your brand’s positive contributions to society, there are a few broad areas that you can focus your video content on. These can be broken down into ethical, environmental, economic and philanthropic responsibilities. Depending on what your business does, some will be easier to connect to than others.
How long should a corporate social responsibility video be?
That depends on the complexity of the topic being covered in the content. If, for instance, you’re telling your brand story more than a decade in the making, the video may be on the longer side. However, a general rule of thumb with video marketing content is that short and direct is best.
Which activities are eligible as corporate social responsibility?
Any project or activity that falls under the themes of ethics, the environment, economy or philanthropy. Some examples include promoting education, gender equality, mental health resources, sustainable practices etc.
Can my contributions to political parties be classified as corporate social responsibility?
No. While a political party might do work that has the potential to improve society, SCR is primarily concerned with the actions of your business, not where it invests money.
