Animated and live video are a must for every organization. Videos are highly engaging, have the ability to explain difficult concepts concisely and provide an experience that's both visual and audible. While video is an incredible medium, it's often insurmountable for small businesses or marketers because of the resources required:
- Professional video and audio equipment for recording.
- Professional voice overs for your scripts.
- Professional graphics and animations to incorporate.
- And, perhaps, the most expensive and critical resource – professional editing for impact.
The great news is that we continue to see advancements – both in hardware and software. The modern phone can record beautiful video in rich 4k resolutions. Add an affordable microphone and your audio will complement the visual experience. Layer in intros, outros, music, visuals, or even animations and you can have an effective content marketing piece without breaking the bank.
