Hyperlapse As Brand Marketing Tool

Instagram Hyperlapse Video

Even though it launched a mere 5 weeks ago, many innovative brands are already leveraging Instagram’s standalone Hyperlapse app, which makes short, time-lapse videos to create fascinating, interesting and highly-engaging content for their fans. Instagram’s Hyperlapse helps users turn shaky videos and turn them into buttery smooth time-lapse videos. Check out this quick introduction video from Instagram:

Now that you understand what Hyperlapse is, lets look at a few different ways that creative brands are using it to craft fun content for their fans and potential consumers.

Product Walk Throughs

For some brands, the product sells itself and the best way to market the product is by providing potential consumers a visual show-and-tell of the product. Hyperlapse allows brands big and small the ability to showcase products that might otherwise require a lengthy video.

Mega-brand Mercedes Benz was one of the first brands to utilize Hyperlapse by creating a walk-around video of their new model, CLA250.

Property Tours

Hyperlapse can be a powerful tool for hospitality brands such as resorts and hotels who understand that potential consumers want to experience and see the property before booking but would love a more interactive, visual experience than a static a photo album. Hyperlapse allows properties to create quick property walk-through videos without asking today's short-attentian span fans to watch a 3 minute video.

The Trump International Beach Resort in Miami understands that their prime location with breath-taking ocean views and luxurious grounds provides the perfect marketing material, created a simple property walkthrough video that perfectly represents the resort.

Office Tours & Meet The Team

Have some pretty awesome Google-esque offices or a super cool, fun team? Some brands are using Hyperlapse to shoot fun office walk-throughs or introduction of their team. These types of videos both help brands communicate to their customers and partners that they are normal people too, who like to have some fun. Sometimes it is just fun to show off too!

One of the best office tours was created by Burton Snowboards. Hard not to be jealous when you see their headquarters via a skarteboard tour.

Lifestyle

Some brands don't need to tell you the benefits of their product, but rather visually show you the lifestyles of the people who call themselves fans.
