Lights, Camera, Action: the Power of Video Production for Your Business

In the fast-paced world of digital marketing, video content has become the undisputed star, captivating audiences and driving engagement. To shed light on the significance of video production for small to medium-sized businesses, we sat down with Cey, co-owner of Two Fresh, a seasoned video production company with 14 years of experience. They’ve worked with some of the biggest brands in the world from Google and Adobe to Lamborghini. From the early days of Facebook and YouTube to the current era of AI, Cey shares insights into the evolving landscape of video marketing and why businesses should embrace this powerful tool.

What are the different types of video productions?

At Two Fresh, we categorise our video marketing into three phases. It’s like a funnel – reaching, engaging, and converting. The first is reaching your audience, involving promotional and social media content. Think short behind-the-scenes clips or targeted video ads. The second phase is engagement, with content like webinars or more extended educational pieces. Finally, there’s conversion content, designed to seal the deal with features, benefits, or case studies.

Which businesses need video and creative content?

I firmly believe every business can benefit from video.

It’s the most potent marketing tool, bridging emotion and information like no other medium. While industries like hospitality, retail, and property find it indispensable, even B2B services can gain a competitive edge with case studies or thought leadership content. Video is a necessity in today’s digital landscape.

What value will it bring to a business?

The value is immense! Firstly, video humanises a business, making it relatable. You can move beyond static ‘Meet the Team’ pages – show the CEO behind the scenes, the team culture, and the heart of your operations. Then, it helps a business stand out online – in a sea of content, videos capture attention better. If you think about when you scroll through your phone, what catches your interest more? Is it images and text? Or is it video content? Lastly, good marketing is good storytelling, and video is the perfect medium for narrating a business’s story. It’s not a luxury anymore; it’s a necessity to stay competitive.

What are animation videos?

Animation videos offer limitless creative possibilities. They are particularly effective for businesses wanting to convey a professional image or simplify complex services. The beauty is, we can work with clients globally without the need for physical filming locations. Animation is a powerful tool, especially for those not comfortable being on camera or those aiming for a more organisational brand rather than a personal one. They’re also a fantastic way to explain a complicated service. So if you have a SaaS or tech business model, animation videos are a great way to break down complicated services.

Why use a video production company when we have AI?

AI is a fantastic tool, making processes more efficient and cost-effective. It’s an example of technology, allowing us to be creative and more accessible. So we’re excited by it as a video production company and implementing it. 

But to be honest, it’s not so much about the tools; it’s about the creative storytelling.

While AI empowers businesses on a budget to create their content, the strategy is equally vital. Video production companies guide clients through strategy and provide that human touch, ensuring the content aligns with their goals and values.

In the ever-evolving landscape of digital marketing, video production emerges as a key player for businesses striving to connect with their audience effectively. As we learned from Cey, the co-owner of Two Fresh, embracing video content is not just a trend; it’s a necessity for staying competitive. Whether you’re a small local business or a global enterprise, the power of video knows no bounds.
