After creating several successful demo videos I have learned great techniques to produce awesome explanatory videos with very little budget.
I have also learned that most startups cannot afford to spend $3k to $10K to have a professional video produced.
This saddens me because every startup can tremendously benefit from having a great demo video explaining what they do.
So to help the startups of the world tell their stories in a unique and fun way I have produced a concise and easy to follow online videotutorial course that will help you learn everything I know to produce great videos like the ones you can see on this website.
Why a great demo video is super important for your company?
A great demo video helps the founders to promote their startup, to explain their product or services better than any text, images, website could ever do. A great demo video is the best most efficient way to tell your story so anyone can understand and take the time to listen to it.
A great demo video acts on your behalf as an elevator pitch for your company so you don’t have to repeat your story over and over to customers and investors. Let the video tell your story so you can concentrate on building a great product.
I have the knowledge and experience to help startups tell their story. I have a passion for startups being one myself so I decided to share my knowledge to help you learn how to create a great demo video yourself.
Whether you are a founder that wants to take that boring screencast video to the next level or a video producer that wants to learn how to produce awesome animated videos for your clients, this video tutorial will ensure you learn everything there is to know to produce the most effective explanatory video possible for the least amount of money.
Videos Rule. If your company’s website doesn’t have them, you are missing out on an awesome way of communicating with your customers.
Videos are an easy and dynamic way of letting folks know about your products or services and they can mean the difference between a lookie-loo and actual sales.
Unfortunately, many companies let the high costs of professional videos turn them off to the real power of this marketing medium. Some folks even create low quality videos in-house.
As dynamic and powerful as videos can be, bad videos can be just as persuasive… in a totally negative way – giving potential customers a bad impressive of your company. Rather than adding poor quality videos to your site, you’re probably better off not adding videos at all.
Now your company can stand out from the crowd and you don’t need to spend $10K in order to have a professional video produced for your site. Are you ready for this? You can start enjoying the benefits of learning how to make your own, professional quality videos now with the help of an awesome video series that teaches you everything you need to know.
