Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I include video in my marketing strategy?FAQ - SellVideo

If you’re not looking at video as part of your marketing strategy, you’re going to be left behind. Look on the website of any successful business today and you will find videos.  Internet marketing is increasing its power year by year and internet video is leading the way.  The independent market research company, eMarketer, reports that “online video was the fastest growing ad format in 2012 with nearly 55% growth.”  On your business website alone, video is a proven tool for increasing  the length of time potential customers spend browsing your products and services as well as increasing purchases.  If that’s not reason enough, then how about this statistic?  Your website is 53% more likely to appear on the first page of google if you have a video on it.

How Much Post-Production is needed?

For a typical production, every day of shooting usually needs 2-3 days of post production work.  For projects with complex graphics/special FX, post could take around 4-8 days.

Do you provide help with script writing?

Yes!  In all of our packages, we provide a basic level of support and proofreading to help you create a compelling script for your video.  We also offer full script writing services so that all you need to do is review it.  The costs for that are listed on the page with our rates.  Whatever level of help you need, we’ll find the resources to provide it.

Can I use professional acting or voice-over talent? If so, how do I find a good person?

We can brainstorm with you to identify the right kind of person for the job and then provide you with a selection of actors or audio or video samples so you can pick the right people to be the voice or face of your message.

How do I get started?

Most clients have an idea about what they want to do but need help developing their idea and organizing it into a plan.  Pre-production is all about-taking an idea and creating the storyboard and script for delivering your message in a compelling way.  Our goal is to make the process easy for you.  We also provide a series of questions to help you through the process of organizing your message, clarifying the elements needed to tell your story and identifying your target market.
