St louis Video Production can create some rather remarkable videos for you.

There is a feeling to cinema, and when drawing people into that world, you must capture that feeling. Challenge yourself. Watch movies that fit the genre you are going for and compare your movie side-by-side. Don’t use any excuses. Yes, the blockbuster films may have a lot more money, but the audience doesn’t want to hear that your piece looks amateur because it doesn’t have a big enough budget. All they know is that it doesn’t look like a movie. With the right composition, colors, lighting, camera settings, FX, color grading, music and sound, you can achieve that cinematic look.

Helpful Ideas To Inspire Your Video Marketing Efforts

Nowadays, people use the Internet for all kinds of transactions. Because of this, businesses should be aware of how to reach more customers via the Internet. Online video marketing is a great way to promote your business.

Your titles are very important. Make sure your titles are relevant and interesting to draw viewers in. Your title will also give them an idea of what to expect from your video. Make up catchy and creative names for each of your videos.

Making a video is just part of the battle. Additionally, you must do a great deal of promoting. You’ll get more clickthroughs with good marketing techniques. You can produce great content, but you also have to make sure targeted customers see your content.

Put together some credits for your videos. You should give a title to your videos, list the names of the people who appear in your videos or who helped you and of course give some details about the products featured in the videos. Make sure you add a link to your main site and encourage viewers to visit it for more information.

Do not avoid video marketing because you are shy. If it is hard for you to talk in front of a camera, do as many takes as you need and edit your video. Ask a friend or a colleague to help you by demonstrating products with you or interviewing you.

When using video marketing to increase your website traffic, you have to remember who you are talking to. Your audience is crucial. You need to target your videos to a specific audience, and you will notice that they will become more engaged, interested, and more likely to make your video marketing a success.

The content you use needs to be interesting. Your video should catch people’s attention. Putting it up on YouTube may get you more views, but your popularity will decline quickly if your video isn’t interesting. Folks like engaging content that contains solid information. You can continually increase your traffic by always providing interesting videos.

Never, never, never try to sell your viewers something in your video. Instead, offer your visitors something worthwhile such as a demonstration of how to do something or how to use a product. By offering relevant information, your visitors are more apt to visit your website, which could in turn result in a sale.

Product reviews help visitors learn about different products. This type of video is the least used video marketing tool. Do not only concentrate on your products, but also include reviews about products that complement your products. For example, if your business specializes in shampoo, do several product reviews on hair styling products.

If you plan to begin a video marketing campaign, put some time into designing a YouTube channel for your business. This will make your videos easy to find, and if a viewer enjoys the first video, they will have multiple others right at their fingertips. This organized, clustered way of presenting your videos will help to draw more viewers, and thus more customers.

Videos can be a successful marketing tool. Marketing your business through videos is a smart way to reach millions of potential customers.

MMM Manufacturing | St Louis Video Production | Target your audience

For corporate video, first define your audience!

Marketing is about positioning and communicating your unique value proposition to a very specific audience. Your product or service won’t appeal to everyone. That’s good!  In fact it probably won’t appeal to that many people at all. You have to ensure that you craft a message that is tailored to the specific concerns of your very well defined audience.

That sounds risky because if you narrow the focus of your message you have to leave some information out. That’s ok, the only thing riskier than that is leaving everything in.  Here are some unique initial video shots for Missouri Manufacturing to be used in a series of new segmented marketing videos.

Clean your facility before your video production day.

Do you want your customers to know what you are all about? A professionally produced video is a great way to let them know. It offers you a chance to show your operation in its best light. So make the most of it.  If you are going to lay it out there for the world to see, make sure you get it right. Here are a few ideas how to prepare your facility for video production.

Before a video crew shows up, a basic first step is to clean your plant… or your office area. Clean up any clutter, and remove papers from desks. For most wide shots, less is more… so be ready to move things to an out of the way area for the shoot day.

For outside areas, try to have the landscaping look as good as possible. Again, remove any trash or clutter.

Take test pictures of your selected areas, and then examine them. Seeing things though the lens of camera is a little different than the naked eye. How is the lighting in your facility? How clean or cluttered does it look? Pass these shots along to your production crew. Include exterior photos too, taking note of when the photo was taken, and the direction in which the sun moves.

For interviews or testimonials, consider the use of a makeup artist to present your team at its best.

Take notes about the electricity available in the areas you will be recording. Make sure all available circuits are working.  The less time the crew spends searching for electricity, the more they can spend on capturing video.

Consider buying shirts to make associates look like a team. Not only does it look better on camera, but your employees might appreciate the gift.

Clean up your facility before the camera rolls.

Schedule taping to make best use of manpower. We can help you work up a schedule to make sure you have the right people available for each scene.

Profiting From Video Marketing | St Louis Video Production

Do you want to learn more about using video marketing to promote your business? Are you not quite sure what it means or how you get started?

Videos can easily be used to explain your products or services to potential customers. Seeing how a product works will help your customers understand how to use your product and why buying from you is preferable to other sellers. So, learning to make videos to explain what you are selling will easily help build your customer base.

If you can be the first person to discuss a topic, that’s the best choice for content. Talk about things you truly are an expert in and provide tips, which can’t be found elsewhere. When people see that what you’re offering isn’t found on other sites, they’ll consider your site to be the expert in the field.

Transparency and an earnest message are extremely important. If you create a video, make sure that you’re doing it about things you really know about and believe in. If you are authentic in your videos, people will probably enjoy them and come back often for more.

Keep in mind that some people surf the Internet using large screen televisions for their monitors. YouTube accepts large video files now. So, do not turn your nose up at high-definition content. Someone looking at your content on a fifty inch plasma will not buy from you if they just see pixels.

Always display your website URL in your video. Most video-editing software packages include the option of placing a text box inside your video. This is the perfect way to ensure that anyone who views your video will know where to learn more, even if they end up seeing your video on a site other than your own.

If you are planning to use videos to market your business you want to be sure that you use a high quality HD camera. Thanks to advances in technology people expect to see videos in high definition. We can help your with your production in our studio or we can shoot you at your business location. We can also pick-up some background footage or B-roll to add content to your video.

Mobile Marketing with Video Clips | St Louis Video Production

Provide instant rewards. With mobile marketing you can give your customers what they want, with no delays. Having a delay can make things lose their value or demand. People will participate in your marketing campaign hoping to get the promised reward. The quicker they get the reward, the happier they will be.

Shorten your URLs, both in text form and for QR codes. The more difficult and lengthy the URL is, the more complex your message or QR code will become. Make these simpler for people to access by using a URL shortening site, and customers will be happier with the end results.

Do your research. Understanding how mobile marketing works is the most important step to take before you get into it. Search for other marketing campaigns, and see which ones worked out well, and which did not. Having this information to back you up can put you on the successful track to marketing well.

Hire a consultant. Not everyone is technologically savvy, so if you are not so inclined, it may be best for you to hire someone to do your dirty work for you. You should look heavily into this person’s background to make sure they are respectful and professional, especially if they will be a permanent member of your team.

Video

With mobile users, text is far more influential than video, so remember that before developing your marketing campaign. Upwards of 88% of all mobile users deal in text messages, but only around 41% of them take the time to watch videos on their mobile devices. This obviously means text should be your bigger area of focus.

QR codes are the latest trend in mobile marketing. You want to put a bar code on your product, and the customer can then scan that with their smart phone. Once that bar code is scanned you can have it set up to link them so a coupon or video, really whatever you want that will bring more interest to your product.

Being aware of what tools are available to you can mean making more customers aware of your business! Understand the tools applicable to your mobile marketing campaign before you begin, to maximize the potential of things like audio, location-awareness and video. Have a solid idea of how to incorporate all of it into your promotions.

Use scannable QR codes to introduce your brand to customers. Link a QR code with a discount or coupon that is only found on the mobile application, product information, short video or another relevant item of value to the user. This is effective at getting customers familiar with your brand.

Those destined to succeed with this type of strategy must first devote sufficient time to learning what types of techniques work best and which may be far less effective.

St Louis News Announcer

Do not allow your shyness to stop you from taking advantage of video marketing. When you are looking into the camera, talk as if you were talking to an old friend. This is a very simple and effective way to help yourself get over the discomfort of talking to people you don’t know.  We are also well-versed in teleprompters and can show you how easy they can work for you to develop flawless delivery of your video message.

 

If you have a brick and mortar store, don’t think online videos can’t work to promote your business. They can, and do. Start with a video tour of your shop, introducing yourself and showcasing your best products and services. Done correctly, video marketing can help personalize your business and reach new customers. So, turn on that camera and show the world why they should trade at your shop.

Editing is essential to creating a quality video. While filming your video, do not hesitate to cut or do multiple takes. Upload your video files to your computer and use a quality editing software to put segments together, get rid of unnecessary scenes and perhaps add some captions or some music.

When you create a video for marketing purposes, your viewer has to believe you. Anything faked within the video, be it, your backdrop or your demeanor, will throw them off. If you want them to believe what you’re trying to tell them, be honest, transparent and come off as warm and friendly.

Video marketing has been responsible for some amazing success stories in recent years. We can help you create your own success story!

Fox 2 News Report on St Louis Video Production Drones | Aerial Video and Photography

Here is a news report from Mandy Murphy, Fox 2 News about our firm.

ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The FAA last week decided to allow commercial use of drones under strict guidelines.  The decision has been in the works since 2005 and still needs final approval.  Current rules for drones are to fly for recreation. If commercial you need a pilot’s license.  The new FAA rules allow for drones under 55 pounds, you must fly below 500 feet, further than 5 miles from an airport and not directly overhead of people.  You must maintain constant visual line of site with the drone.

Haller Concepts of South County is already using drones from commercial photography and video.  Safety is the most important aspect for Haller.  They always use a two-man crew.  One person operates the drone and keeps constant line of sight while the other watches the shot and directs the operator.  Haller and many others like them will get their certificate of authorization.

Technology is far outpacing government rules.  Law enforcement across the country are interested in using drones.  St. Louis Police have asked for permission from the FAA.  Groups like drone free St. Louis are opposed to police drones.  They want strict privacy rules from the government.

Right now, the new ruling does not allow for companies like Amazon to begin delivering packages using a GPS drone.  Line of sight is still required. It may take a year or two for the new FAA rules to be fully implemented.

Here is the original link to the reported story.  http://fox2now.com/2015/02/24/new-drone-rules-allow-for-commercial-use/

Ten Rules for Shooting in High Definition Video | St Louis Video Production

1. Never overexpose high definition video. There is no process that can bring back burned-out highlights.
2. Control highlights: HD has trouble with them.
3. Avoid using gain whenever possible.
4. Control exposure when you can, but if not, err on the side of underexposure, not overexposure.
5. 23.98 frames per second (fps) this is the most frequent choice for narrative storytelling.
6. 29.97 fps is usually preferred for sports.
7. A potential problem is too much depth-of-field. This is not a problem with full frame HD cameras as we have.
8. Another problem is seeing too much detail in things like makeup, sets, and wardrobe.
9. Shoot at 23.98 fps or 29.97, not 24 or 30. This is important for audio sync.
10. There are times when you will need to shoot actual 24 or 30 fps; consult with your producer or editor.
