3 Times When You Need to Make Videos

As of March 4, 2015, I stopped working as an accountant, and started working with Elise full time. Which is how we are able to offer video productions. There are several situations where you will find yourself questioning if you should hire a videographer but today I am going to discuss three situations when you don't need to think twice about it: 1. When you are about to get married, 2. You own a business, or 3. You are in a band.

Wedding Videography

According to a survey taken in 2006, "98% percent of surveyed newlyweds recommended that brides have their weddings videotaped".  Year after year you will find articles quoting that statistic while advising brides not to fall into the same trap. My favorite two examples,  are the The Huffington Post Like most brides, I budgeted for photos, but not wedding video. Like 98 percent of brides who make that decision, I regretted not getting a wedding video.” And The KnotYou may be thinking wedding photos and a video are overkill, but trust us, you will want both”. Whether it is your proposal, your love story, your wedding day, or your happily ever after, we will capture the details for your video production, so you can just live in the moment.

Small Business Video Content

Video marketing is a powerful tool for getting more visibility more quickly, so you can get your message out, attract your ideal clients, make more money, and have more impact  (Entrepreneur.com). This powerful statement can be backed up by several studies that have been compiled in this article titled “37 reasons that video content is king”. Providing many insightful video marketing stats here are a few: "200% to 300% increase in click-through rate when marketers include video in an e-mail. 100% more time is spent on pages with videos on them. 85% of people more likely to purchase a product after watching a product video. 59% of senior executives would rather watch a video than read text. About 65% of those who view a video click through to visit the vendor website, 50% look for more information and 45% report that they contacted a vendor after seeing an online video ad. About 50% of those who viewed an online marketing video went on to make a purchase for their business". Video content for your small business is vital for your marketing strategy.

Music Videos

Not only is YouTube THE most popular online tool for music discovery, but amongst the younger demographic (18-) it’s also become THE preferred platform for listening to music" (The DIY Musician). The Music channel on YouTube has over 89 million subscribers, but the founder of Chromatik, Matt Sandler, said it best. One of the YouTube myths I hear all of the time is – “I just need ONE video to strike it big”. The unfortunate reality is that 100,000 views and a couple hundred subscribers doesn’t get you very far in the YouTube ecosystem. So let’s focus on starting small and building a community (Hypebot.com). Maintaining that community is up to your band, but I can help you get your foot in the door. Everyone has watched a bad music video on YouTube and unless it was hysterically bad, we didn’t make it through the whole song. Music videos combine my two favorite components of filmmaking; music and storytelling. Contact me today to collaborate on video content that we can contribute to the community your band is building.
