At Veed.me, we’re firm believers in the value of a great corporate video.
Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, corporate videos got a bad rap. That’s because oftentimes they are filled with corporate jargon, vague statements, and yawn-inducing music.
We define a corporate video as a public-facing video which focuses on the company, its culture and itspeople as a whole, rather than specific products or services. Sometimes they’re also referred to as “corporate culture videos” or a “recruiting videos.”
These 8 great examples from different industries and budget points show that corporate videos don’t have to be cheesy, boring, or stiff:
Corporate Video Examples
Dollar Shave Club has some pretty absurd videos. Absurd in the best way possible. Their corporate video is short and sweet, yet, it packs in an explanation of the company, introduction of the founder, and plenty of humor. Thanks to their viral videos, Dollar Shave Club skyrocketed in growth and popularity and was recently acquired by Unilever, a giant in the life brands category. If this doesn’t show the power of video, we don’t know what does!

Here’s an example focused on the Executive Assistant roles:
