Shepherd Communications provides one-stop promotional video production services, from pre-production tasks (e.g. concept creation, scriptwriting, storyboard design), video shooting to post-production video editing (e.g. film editing, visual effect, color grading, sound mixing, subtitles). According to survey results, there has been a rise in video ads on social media platforms in recent years, which shows increasing popularity among enterprises in using video formats to advertise their brand. As viral videos and microfilms are gaining huge popularity, plus the fact that video-ad-supported online platforms, such as YouTube and Facebook, have more than 80% active users per day, video marketing is certainly the big trend to watch for. As an advertising agency with solid experience in promotional video production, Shepherd Communications believes that a high-quality video cannot be produced unless you have adequate pre-production preparation, such as developing creative concepts and working out a detailed shooting plan. If you want to leverage the power of videos to promote your brand, products or services, feel free to drop us a note!
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why is animation an effective way to promote a brand, product or service?
The aim of a promotional video is to inform the target audience of a brand’s mission, products and services. For certain industries, such as the insurance sector, and certain types of promotional videos, such as a product launch video, animation is a highly effective tool to deliver complex messages in an engaging and easy-to-understand way. By turning people, objects and activities into cartoons, we can secure the audience’s attention and buy-in more effectively. We provide one-stop animation production services covering concept design, scripting, storyboarding, voiceovers and subsequent uploading to different media and platforms. After the animation is finished, our team always goes the extra mile to help you distribute it and manage the audience’s response and make adjustments to the designs as necessary.
2. What are the benefits of using videos to promote a brand’s products or services?
According to survey results, 70% of Facebook users are more willing to purchase a product and form a deeper impression of the brand after watching a product video on Facebook. This suggests that promotional videos can increase conversions and hence your advertising effectiveness. While your customers may find it tedious reading through lengthy product information, a promotional video might be a better alternative especially for complicated products, as you can easily convey a key message, such as a brand mission or a unique selling point of a product, in a concise manner using videos. A video can sometimes be “educational” rather than “promotional”. Educational videos, also known as “how-to” videos, are a good way for your potential customers to gain valuable information, therefore increasing their purchase intentions at an early stage. This kind of video answers your audience’s questions, arouses their interests to find out more and positions your brand as an authority in your respective field. Such a soft-selling marketing approach makes your brand more believable and trustworthy in the eyes of customers.
