Receiving a personalized video makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. You can’t help but feel “they noticed me!”

But why would you want to impress your employees like that?

For once, because Impressed = Engaged. And only 20% of employees declare themselves engaged with their work. Gallup says this is the world’s $7.8 trillion workplace problem.

To make it not your company’s problem, you can create customized videos to improve your internal communications, create a positive work culture, and show your employees the recognition they expect.

You must be thinking: Wait a minute, a custom, unique video for each and every employee. There's no way I can scale that.

Oh yes, you can.

What you’re about to read will:

✔️ Show you how it’s possible to create internal videos using AI

✔️ Show you inspiring personalized video examples you can duplicate in seconds

✔️ Enable you to make your own custom video in about 30 minutes (which you can then personalize in mere minutes).

Tip 💡

While this article focuses on making personalized videos for employees, you can also use them to create sales videos for potential customers or welcome videos for new customers. For high-end brands of B2B businesses, it can also be used in video marketing campaigns that keep bit customers engaged.

8 Personalized video examples you can easily recreate

Video personalization implies tailoring the content and message of your video to a specific employee, department, or team.

There are different ways to make a video look and feel personalized. You could:

✅ Show customized imagery that is relevant to their work activity

✅ Include interactive video elements and personalized CTAs

✅ Meet them at their skill level, showing you know what information they have and what new information they need

✅ Create different versions of the same video to cater to different individuals, perhaps even in different languages
