Mobile Video App Ideas to Grow Your Business 

Video isn’t just for marketing. You can use it across all areas of your business to save time, nurture customer relationships, and communicate with your team. Best of all, it’s easy. All you need is your Android or iOS iPhone/iPad and Screencast-O-Matic’s video recording and editing app.

Try these video app ideas below to help support and grow your business from your phone.

Answer customer inquiries

Customer service is one area where small businesses can outshine competitors. To make your customers feel heard and valued, reply to their questions with a quick video. 

If a customer emails you for help navigating your website, create a screencast showing how to solve the problem step-by-step. Open the screen recorder app on your phone, tap to record your screen, and talk them through the solution.

Use the mobile editing tools to emphasize certain parts of your video.  Add text for clarity and context. Use overlay stickers to show where to click on your website.  You can also use the blur effect to hide personal information, along with a host of other editing tools.

If customers ask the same questions often, make your help videos available on your help or FAQ page.

Communicate with your team

Especially while working remotely, it can be hard to know what’s going on with your coworkers. Try having everyone make a quick mobile video at the beginning of the week, sharing what they plan to work on, and what support they need.

Videos also help teams problem-solve together. If an app developer gets stuck on an issue, they can make a quick screencast of their phone screen so coworkers can help.

Virtual team training

Break your employee training material down into bite-sized mobile video lessons. This enables your team to learn on-the-go and gives them a chance to reflect on what they learn before moving on to the next lesson. 

You can also make your training videos visually engaging by adding emoticons. If you’re sharing a list of dos and don’ts, add a thumbs up or thumbs down to help illustrate your message.

Product updates & announcements

Have big news to share with your audience? You can create emotional impact with video. Set the screen recorder to record and show your screen if your announcement has accompanying visuals.

Add the video to your website, embed it in your newsletter, or share it on social media.

Social media marketing

Mobile video leads the pack in engagement on social networks like Facebook, Instagram, and TikTok. Hubspot reports that 54% of consumers want to see more videos from the brands they support. 

Thankfully, there’s no pressure to put out heavily produced, expensive videos. Authentic, casual content is trending, so all you have to do is use the mobile screen recorder to share a behind-the-scenes look at your business, helpful tips, or updates about your latest sale.
