Video brochures are ideal for sales, fundraising, educating, training, recruiting, branding and many other business purposes.
Also, they can be distributed easily to targeted recipients and are exactly the cutting edge tools needed to give your company an edge over your competitors.
Leave, Retrieve and Close with Video Brochures
Video brochures can be handed to targeted recipients, sent by mail, displayed at trade shows, shared in meetings, and left with representatives to give to decision makers who may be interested in buying whatever is being sold.
They are packaged in a way similar to traditional brochures with space for logos, QR codes, images, and other company branding. There is also room for printed testimonials, awards, and other advertising content. However, when they are opened, a video comes to life that usually captivates and entertains viewers.
By using a video brochure to captivate and entertain potential customers, combined with the realization that humans remember substantially more of what they see and hear in videos than what they experience with motionless words or images, what results is a selling powerhouse.
Furthermore, the fact that a video brochure has to be retrieved creates a perfect opportunity for a follow up appointment and a chance to close a deal.

Having owned an advertising magazine in Utah, I’ve worked in marketing for over twenty years.
I started writing for MediaFast in 2014. The first time I held one of their video brochures, I thought something like, “Wow! This blows away our magazine and any other print advertising I’ve ever seen. This is like a TV commercial, and I’m holding it in my hands. Amazing!”
Since then, video brochures, video mailers and video boxes have become leaders in marketing performance. It’s a privilege to write about them. I also love MediaFast—with its top-notch product quality, industry leading customer service, and all of the wonderful people I get to work with.
