As many of you know, video production is our most popular service here at HeartFire Media. I started my career in the TV/Film industry many years ago and am blessed with amazingly talented videographers and editors here in the San Antonio area who produce quality commercials, web video, event coverage, etc. A few years ago, many people thought video was an unnecessary tool for their marketing strategy, but today it is an absolute necessity. Here’s why:
The internet boom (which now seems like light years ago), has transformed the way we absorb information including the amount of time we spend on the web. No longer do people want to spend more than five minutes on your website reading about you, your company, or anything else important you have to say. They need something fast and to the point, leaving them with the ‘yes’ or ‘no’ decision to work with you now or in the future. If you don’t have a video by now explaining what your company does and what makes you unique, you are already behind. BUT, no worries, it’s not too late to start one. The main goals of a video are not just to have great advertising spots on television but to 1) get more people to buy your services or product 2) get more people to visit your website 3) inform the public about the amazing things you and your company are doing.
