Guest Post: How Animated Videos Can Help Your Business Reach More Customers

Today, companies have a bevy of tools they can use to interact and engage with their customers. But those same tools can compete for the attention of the same target audience, posing a unique challenge for companies and their marketing team.

Study after study indicates that the attention span of the average consumer found online has been dwindling. Online interactions can be cut short by a variety of reasons, ranging from slow loading of a website to lack of engaging content.

 

Another tool to add to your arsenal

When it comes to drawing (and holding) the attention of your target customers online, whether it’s on your social media pages or even on your website, one powerful tool that you can use is the animated explainer video.

Why should you invest in the production of an animated explainer video?

As the old adage goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Videos engage both the senses of sight and sound, making these superior to text or even infographics.

Humans are physiologically and psychologically wired to take in and process visual information thousands of times faster compared to a block of text. But apart from that, that processed information is more likely to be retained compared to merely reading something.

It doesn’t take much to reap the benefits of an animated video. Even just a few minutes of footage can pack in much information. Compare that to reading a 700-word article that can take anywhere between three to five minutes to read.

 

How can you use animated videos?

Another unique advantage of animated videos is their versatility.

Marketing is one key aspect where animated videos shine. With these videos, your imagination is the limit. Untethered from the limitations of ordinary videos, you can tell your animation studio how exactly you want your brand to be represented. 

Animated videos are almost peerless in terms of storytelling. Whether you are introducing your company to the public or new employees, or telling customers how your products work, the diversity of animated videos makes other platforms pale in comparison.

Animated videos can also be used to boost your SEO rankings. For one, these videos can increase the time a user spends on your website. And the more time site visitors spend on your website, the more search engines like Google see this as a sign of the quality of your website and its pages.

 

And if you post these videos on YouTube, the second largest search engine, your search engine ranking is more likely to move up.

 

Live vs. animated

How do animated videos compared to live videos where you have human actors? In order to better answer that question, it is critical to look at a few factors.

 

Animated videos contain various elements. Typically, the process of making one begins with a script and a storyboard. From there, the process moves toward the actual animation and the addition of music, voiceovers, and sound effects.

Production times can range from weeks to months, depending on a few considerations, including requests for revisions. Live videos can take just a few days to shoot.

Like animated videos, live videos start with a script and a storyboard. From there, you will need to cast actors and put together a production team for various elements, including props, costumes, and sound.

 

In terms of savings in both time and money, animated videos almost always win over live videos. That’s because everything is made from scratch. An animated studio does not have to deal with hassles like the fickle weather, finding a suitable location for a shoot, or even the temperament of actors.

On top of that, animated videos have a higher click rate compared to their live counterparts.

 

On the converse side of the coin, live videos exude an authentic vibe. When viewers hear and see emotions from the actors, your company can quickly gain their trust. Live videos can also be produced faster. 

However, these videos can be quite expensive and can take a substantial amount of work to produce.

 

Which should you choose?

That will depend heavily on your budget and intended purpose. For companies that aim to reap the benefits of videos, but want something that can be produced quickly and at a fraction of the cost of a live video, animated is the way to go.

Guest Post: The Importance of Evergreen Content

 Creating content that is unique and relevant to your business and will drive traffic to your site is an important part of any business’ marketing strategy. You want to create quality content that people will appreciate and keep coming back to over and over. This type of content is called evergreen content.

This article will discuss what evergreen content is, why it’s important for your business, how your businesses can create and incorporate evergreen content into their marketing strategy. 

What is Evergreen Content?

While you may have never heard of the term evergreen content, you surely have browsed the internet and came across some examples of it before. So, what exactly is it? Evergreen content is simply relevant, quality content that will continue to be relevant even years after it’s posted. The type of content that you keep coming back to and referencing time and time again. 

This type of valuable content can include actionable tips, how-to guides, case studies, resources and tools, everything you need to know about a niche, infographics, lists and more. Avoid time-sensitive subject matters such as seasonal content or content related to a specific date. The more information you can provide to your viewers the better. People like having all the information they need to know at the tip of their fingers. 

While this may seem challenging for businesses that need to constantly update their site to show no longer available or new inventory, such as a car dealership site or an online furniture store, there are other places they can house evergreen content. For example, Audi Bellevue has all of their current inventory on their site, but also hosts articles on their site that will remain helpful to readers, such as an “Audi Wiper Blade Replacement Guide”.
