When a business uses corporate videos in its marketing strategy, it can help it achieve up to a 49% increase in the amount of revenue it generates annually. So if a business is not making corporate videos actively, then it’s losing out majorly on an incredible conversion tool.
Not a very long time ago, corporate videos were thought to be too boring to be able to engage users or customers in any meaningful way. But that certainly isn’t the case today as many brands are making top-notch corporate videos that are not just going viral but are also bringing in tangible conversions for their respected brands.
A corporate video should eschew your company’s culture and the way you work, making others become more willing to work with you. Following this idea, you can make killer corporate videos for your next brand campaign with the assistance of your corporate video production company and if you want inspiration for it, then here are the 10 best examples of corporate videos made by brands from across the world:

A corporate video that doesn’t feel like one, Canal+’s corporate video is super interesting for anyone to watch. They did this video to promote their new campaign and made a bear rug the center of attention. The video shows the bear rug emoting on just how much passion he has for movies, direction, and cinema and how he just can’t stop. For those of you who haven’t noticed, the video includes a very subtle subliminal message in the way it chooses the bear rug to be the start of the whole corporate video.

If a company has won uncountable awards on every front and has worked with top clients from all across the world, then mentioning them in a corporate video can appear quite cheesy. If you too have such an agency with so many accolades, then you might want to take inspiration from this incredibly humorous corporate video by Risual.
This brand did everything in a single corporate video; show their hard-working and friendly staff, their super fun work culture, their accolades, and their brand ideology, all rolled up in a video spanning just over two minutes.
Another example of an excellent corporate video is the one made by Rackspace. This video has a lot of less humor than the one by Risual, but it embodies the same “brand vibe” as Risual, which is so important to feel in a corporate video.
Rackspace’s corporate video premise involves a day in their office which includes how their office looks, who works there, how they work there, what drives them, and what special benefits do they offer.
This corporate video is fast-paced so you don’t get bored at any point and above everything else, it “humanizes” the whole experience of Rackspace as a workplace. The creators did a splendid job in not just executing this amazing video but also in coming up with its premise.
7. Red Bull Racing
It’s not every day that you get to see the inner workings of how a top draw Formula 1 team works and brings in results, so this out-of-the-box, concept-driven, corporate video by Red Bull Racing certainly hit the right nerve.
The main star of the video is the Milton Keynes race factory, of which an exclusive tour is given in this video.

Moreover, this video’s branding is a perfect example of how you can create memorable corporate videos for your audience. There’s not a single mention of Shopify’s services in the whole video.

9. John St
It can be really risky to be subliminal in the message you want to give your users but John St. pulled it off perfectly in its corporate video. The video which focuses on “Catvertising” is one of the most humorous corporate videos out there, but don’t think that there are only humor and no information in there.
This corporate video gives the subliminal message that modern-day advertising needs to be done in an altogether different way, one which customers are looking to engage with like cat content, which has gone so viral till now.
Getting the message out, this corporate video by John St. is definitely one for the archives.
Corporate videos or even marketing videos, in general, have become increasingly devoid of any great human story in recent times. Brands often forget the fundamental fact that “hearing from the other side” is still one of the most interesting things out there and one that can really engage people to no bounds.
This corporate video by AirBnB shares just this trait and in a brilliant way indeed. No fancy graphics, no heavy voiceovers, no nothing, just a simplistic video showing montages of real AirBnB hosts telling about their experiences with the service and how it has benefitted them. Sure it looks promotional but seeing real humans in a video for a change was definitely a great idea and one that perfectly gels with what AirBnB offers as a brand.
