By Sarah de Verges January 11, 2017

While Inbound is still a relatively new approach to marketing, it continues to play a major role in what Gary Vaynerchuk has called “the greatest era of communication change since the printing press.” Gone are the days when marketers could put up a slick billboard and cross their fingers.

You have a product or service that’s important and valuable, and that could change your customers’ lives, but how do you capture them, rather than put them to sleep? 
Here are 3 ways you can keep the drool off the conference table:
Animated video is a great way to convey a complex message into a quick, easily digestible concept that your customers and/or employees will eat up!  It’s a non-threatening, unintimidating medium that says to your customer, “It’s just that easy!”, while still educating and demonstrating your important message, with motion.  The best part about it is, it can reflect your brand, culture and values without you and your staff enrolling into acting classes.

“An intellectual says a simple thing  in a hard way. An artist says a hard  thing in a simple way.”
—Charles Bukowski
HOW? We take your big idea and really get nerdy with it, getting to know it like the back of our hands, to create a simple, yet informative message that will resonate with your customers.  Next, we explore a spot-on art direction and develop a comprehensive storyboard to tell your story.  Lastly, we add motion, music and voice talent, to create your engaging presentation.
An animated video has endless marketing possibilities, perfect for your website, social media and blog.
