Glenmore Custom Print & Packaging recently commissioned us to create a testimonial that would showcase their value to both designers and design consumers. Promotional videos like this are incredibly powerful. They remove a barrier between a business and potential clients, creating an atmosphere of familiarity and trust. For this project, Derek Ford Studios cut the original Glenmore Custom Print & Packaging video down to 15 second videos for optimal sharing on Instagram.
The Power of Video
Earlier this year, YouTube surpassed Google for total number of monthly visitors. Video is this popular because it is the most powerful and immediate way to tell a story. For business, it’s the most compelling way to explain your unique value proposition and build relationships with current and potential clients. Not only do companies using video enjoy 41% more web traffic from search than non-video users, including a video on a landing page can increase conversion rates by 80%.
Beyond video testimonials, there are a variety of promotional videos you can leverage for your business to connect with your clients. These include anything from educational shorts and animated videos, to company story videos and commercials.
The Final Product
62% of consumers are more likely to have a negative perception of a brand that published a poor quality video. This means that you cannot afford to make subpar videos! When hiring a professional video production company, look for one that has experience delivering quality work. Find someone that understands the scope of your needs and can consult with you to achieve your goals for your video projects.
