    Without proper planning, video becomes an expensive, haphazard array of media on your Website or channel. Harness the video branding opportunity by developing an overall cohesive video strategy and style for your business or nonprofit.


    A video that doesn’t succinctly define a problem, challenge or need in the opening is not answering “why” — why viewers matter to your agency or company and why they should want to watch. Without the “why,” they won’t care about the business or the subject presented and will click away after 10-15 seconds.

    Happy Thanksgiving

    One common mistake is opening a video with a long series of still pictures without any text or narration explaining them. Even if accompanied by good music, without the important information added, viewers will not be enticed to stay till the end. They need a compelling reason to engage with your video.
