Videography

Why do I need a collection of videos & how can I use them?


The fastest way to attract more clients/followers to your Business/Brand is by getting your message across to your listening audience in a creative way. Videography is brilliant for grabbing attention, these videos can go on your website and be used on your Social Media and/or YouTube channel. You may wish to have 5 videos taken which are used for Social Media to make contact and advertise/market your Services and/or Brand. See an example of Videography HERE. These videos have been designed and created for a small business, which they use for social media postings, adverts, attach to their websites, and demonstrating their business in networking meetings. If you require help with Social Media Ideas and Creations - I support many businesses with Social Media Strategic Marking Planning. I offer a FREE individual session which you can BOOK ONLINE.




How are these Business Videos created?


These videos are taken against a range of backgrounds, there are many backgrounds options for you. You may wish to take advantage of the stylish lounge, a contemporary loft style office wall or the photography studio with a bright background. You may want your video to be taken with or without your products. The videography sets are pre-arranged to look stylish, using expensive furnitures and artistic set ups to entice the clients. If you prefer the Raw look, this is available too.




What is the process for this Videography?


We have an initial planning meeting in my studio to decide the video remit style. We decide how we will introduce you to your business video. You may wish to bring in objects like a jewellery box or use a creative backdrop. We work together to create a storyboard for your images and a list of resources which will help your photoshoot come alive. You may require help with your scripts or what to say, which I can advise you.
