What is a promo video?

A promo video, short for promotional video, is a short video created to promote a product, service, event, brand, or idea. Promo videos are a powerful marketing tool used to engage and captivate an audience, generate interest, and encourage viewers to take specific action, such as purchasing, signing up for a newsletter, attending an event, or learning more about a product or service.
Critical characteristics of promo videos include:

1. Short Duration: Promo videos are typically brief, ranging from a few seconds to a few minutes. They aim to convey a compelling message quickly and efficiently.

2. Engaging Content: These videos often feature dynamic visuals, persuasive storytelling, and compelling calls to action to grab the viewer’s attention and keep them engaged.

3. Clear Message: Promo videos convey a clear and concise message about the product, service, or event they promote. They highlight key features or benefits.

4. Visual Appeal: Visual elements, such as graphics, animations, and video clips, are commonly used to make the video visually appealing and memorable.

5. Branding: Promo videos often incorporate branding elements like logos, slogans, and brand colors to reinforce brand identity.

6. Distribution: They are commonly shared on various platforms, including websites, social media, email marketing, and television, to reach a broad audience.

7. Call to Action (CTA): Promo videos usually include a CTA that directs viewers to take a specific action, such as visiting a website, making a purchase, or contacting a company.

Promo videos can take various forms, including product demos, event teasers, and brand introductions. They are versatile and effective marketing tools to promote businesses, products, services, and events in today’s digital age.

How it works

Our Promo VIDEO Production Process:

Here’s how we go from initial ideation through to final delivery of your promo video:

Our process begins with a development meeting to discuss the script, the visuals, and our shared goals. Once everyone is aligned, we proceed to the pre-production phase.

We write and refine the script until you’re happy with its content. We research suitable voice-over artists and start designing any animated assets. Once everything is approved, we move on to production.

We’ll be on set or at a studio location if we’re filming Live-Action. If the film is animated, we’ll start creating the assets and animations and begin to pre-visualize the entire story. Once these have been signed off, we move on to post-production.

Working from the storyboard, we edit your film, enhancing it with music, bespoke sound design, and a temporary voice-over (if required). We then present the fully edited film/s to you. You may have some minor adjustments, and we happily refine the film until you’re happy. The final step involves recording and laying the proper voice-over before delivering the finished films.

We deliver the video to the exact video specifications requested. We can provide a 4K and HD copy with varying file sizes, so you have no issues uploading or sharing.
