An introductory video on the landing page
A very useful method is to create a video for your landing page, in which you introduce your business and explain how you can help your potential customers and clients. This way you can give users all the important information they need before they even start browsing your site.

These videos bring the brand closer to the viewer and help to gain their sympathy and maintain their interest.
