You know that the best way to increase sales and cement your place as a leader in your industry is to stay on top of the trends that are most appealing to your audience. In 2018, video is the preferred form of communication for most people.
Now’s the time for ad agencies to partner with a dynamic, experienced video production company like NextThought Studios. Here are some of the benefits our agency partners enjoy.
Benefit #1: We provide the manpower required to create a great video.
You might be surprised by how many hours are required to create a video that will entertain and engage your audience. Many agencies don’t have spare time to create even a rudimentary video, so when they decide to incorporate video into their digital marketing strategy, they’re forced to hire at least one more person to man their video team.
That one person is responsible for all the steps that go into each video, from brainstorming the concept to editing the final product. You might find that this person is great on the creative end, but they struggle to finish the editing. Or maybe they love adding all the technical touches, but they hate sitting down to write the script. Regardless, your video might suffer if you don’t have the right person for each step.
When you partner with NextThought studios, you can rest easy knowing that a team of experts will help you make a video that you can share with pride. At each step of the process, we’ll have an experienced professional working with you to ensure that you get the finished product you want.
Benefit #2: You’ll get a high-quality video without the in-house cost.
You’re probably not surprised to learn that the equipment required to film and edit a quality video is pretty pricey. In fact, some agencies find that getting the gear they need is cost-prohibitive, and they give up on the idea altogether
Think about it— you’ll need a good camera, lighting, sound equipment, editing software, and other things that you wouldn’t realize you need until you’re in the middle of the project. Of course you can make a video on the cheap, but remember that people are becoming more savvy about video by the day. They’ll be able to tell that you cut corners. Is that the impression you want to make?
Fortunately, NextThought Studios has all the gadgets that are necessary for making a great video. Better yet, we know how to use them. Looking for a simple, 60-second video? We can do that. Do you need a two-minute video with animation, 3-D motion, and other complex concepts? We can do that, too. (And it’s going to cost you a lot less than it would if you tried to do it in-house!)
Benefit #3: You’ll have instant access to a video portfolio.
When you start to offer video services to your clients, one of the first things they’ll ask is, “Can we see some examples of what you’ve done before?”
Uh-oh. If you’ve just launched your video services, it’s unlikely that you’ve got an in-depth portfolio to share with curious clients.
NextThought Studios has been making professional-grade productions, ranging from animation and 3D motion graphics to educational videos, commercials to marketing videos, for years. Our team of experienced pros have created a huge range of videos, so your clients are sure to find something that appeals to them within our portfolio.
Benefit #4: We give you a pricing sheet up front— no surprises.
You’ve probably experienced the old “bait and switch” before. You’re given a quote that seems too good to be true, and as it turns out, it was. You might be reluctant to partner with a video production company for fear that the cost will snowball until you’re left staring at a much larger invoice than you originally anticipated.
We get it.
The last thing we want is for our partners to feel as though we’ve tricked them. With that in mind, we provide our clients with a detailed pricing sheet from the start. In addition to giving you a price for the services we provide, it also helps you calculate the cost of your video from start to finish, as well as your margins.
You’ll be able to make an informed decision about what you want for your video based on your needs and your budget.
Benefit #5: One of our Video Marketers will help you navigate a new channel.
You’ve marketed your content before. It’s basically the same, right? In some ways, yes, but some tactics are particularly effective for marketing video. This is yet another reason to work with an experienced, full-service video production company.
NextThought Studios’ video marketers will help you ensure that you’re using the most up-to-date strategies to promote your videos. We combine tried-and-true tactics with video-specific strategy to create a marketing plan that won’t miss.
Benefit #6: Our experts will ensure you’re on top of the latest trends.
Of course, the traditional talking-head video has its place— and, in the hand of a team of experts, it can be entertaining and informative. However, video is an ever-changing landscape. Our experienced pros stay abreast of the most current tools and techniques, ensuring that you’ve always got access to video’s latest and greatest trends.
