Video content is taking over social media. If you’re like a lot of event marketers right now, you might be wondering how you can film short videos at your event that attendees will share.

Perhaps you’ve even looked into it and found that professional video crews are too expensive. Their large lights, camera equipment, and the team to run it can be very intimidating to participants. And finally, they can’t edit fast enough to deliver the high-quality video in a bite-size, shareable format that participants would share on social media.

Fortunately, there is a better way.

Video photo booths are the go-to-solution for marketers that need to create compelling user-generated content at scale for social media. They allow you to capture instant, share-worthy video clips at any business event, wedding, or party in a practical way.

4 Reasons Why You Need a Video Photo Booth at Your Events

1. Videos Rank Better

Videos are the top content on social media platforms right now because they engage people for longer than other types of content. People love to watch videos on their phone to pass the time, whether it’s on TikTok, Instagram Reels, YouTube, or Facebook Stories.

As a result, social media algorithms are much more likely to promote your videos, giving you a better opportunity to market your brand or advocate for a cause.

2. They Activate Your Superfans

Your superfans are the customers that adore your brand the most—but they won’t necessarily shout it from the rooftop every day. They need to be prompted and encouraged.

A video photo booth gives them the opportunity to have fun and also share what they love about your products or services. They can do this safely through the guidance of your creative concept, which could be talking to the camera after a question prompt, or simply participating in a fun activity, like strutting their best dances moves.

3. Video Photo Booths Scale Easily

Video photo booths allow you to set up multiple video capture stations at your event so more people can participate. They provide a standardized experience you can even set up in different cities or regions.

4. They Are Friendly and Approachable

People tend to freeze up when they are put on the spot in front of a big camera and studio lights. Video photo booths feel less intimidating because they have a touchscreen that puts you in control. Participants can tap to start, preview their video, and retake it if they don’t like it.
