“Knocked It Out of the Park!”

“On Friday we premiered our new Whiteboard Video for the entire team, and it was received extremely well. Our goal going into the project was to develop a “client-centric” video, that provided us a different visual impact for the viewer - and Louisa knocked it out of the park. Not only was the product fantastic, but working with her was a joy. She has a gift to be able to grasp diverse and complex processes, listen well, and translate those concepts to the screen. She is also patient - 36 emails back and forth on our project - yet acted with a sense of urgency - we completed the project in 6 weeks. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. In closing, I’ll share a quote from our CFO that speaks to the value of her service: “That was the best money we have ever spent in Sales & Marketing!”

Why Whiteboard Sells


GRABS ATTENTION

Whiteboard videos are a great way to engage your web visitor. Your viewer is instantly put at ease due to the casual and informal feel and they continue watching because they want to see the drawing completed and experience the final product. Drawings are a primary and very basic way of communicating and people are drawn (sorry for the pun!) to them. When your viewer is relaxed and engaged, they will take notice and connect with your message and you'll be more likely to make a sale.

FLEXIBLE BRANDING

Whiteboard animations are completely custom and can be crafted specifically to reflect your branding, but in that folksy, familiar style. Whatever your message or brand, it is reinforced in a positive, fun way. You can’t go wrong.

DON'T WASTE YOUR SPACE

What's the point of putting your message on the web if it's not going to grab people — and let's face it — entertain them? You want to be memorable; you want to sell your product. With whiteboard animation, your message stays with your visitor and they are more likely to remember and choose you over your competitor.

APPEALS TO PEOPLE AND SEARCH ENGINES BOTH

A picture is worth a thousand words, and moving pictures are worth even more! Animations are the exact opposite of text on a page. Viewers connect with the drawings on an immediate and emotional level. Also, search engines take note when people stay on your site to watch your animation, giving your site better rankings.

Video: An Effective Way to Communicate with Clients

 

Today, we're seeing video as one of the key methods for communicating messages to clients. Here are some interesting facts you may not be aware of -

 

-After Google, YouTube has become the second-biggest search engine;

 

-Every minute there are 60 hours of video being uploaded; which means that each and every second a staggering 60 minutes of video is uploaded onto YouTube;

 

-Each day a whopping 4 billion videos (conservatively) are watched;

 

-Each month more than 800 million users visit YouTube;

 

-Every month more than 3 billion hours of video are watched on YouTube;

 

-In one month, more video is uploaded to YouTube than the three major networks in the United States created in 60 years;

 

-YouTube had over 1 trillion views in the year 2011; which equals around 140 views for every person on earth.

 

So, what do all the above statistics mean for you and your business? It means that viewers love videos, so businesses need to acknowledge this and provide their customers with the type of content they're looking for. It's true that a lot of online video consumption is driven by entertainment and recreational videos; however, there's enough evidence to show that video is very impactful when used for business purposes.Let's take a look at another lot of statistics -

 

-Consumers spend 9% more time viewing a webpage when there's a video present, compared to when there's no video;

 

-In a survey, 22% of respondents said they preferred to watch a video rather than browsing text when looking for business information, and 60% said they would watch a video before they read text on the same webpage;

 

-75% of executives surveyed said that at least once a week they watch work-related videos on business websites, while more than 50% said they watch these videos on YouTube;

 

-A survey carried out by Forbes in October 2010 showed that, after viewing a work-related online video, 65% of executives in the United States visit a vendor's website.

 

So, what does all this information mean? It means that, for the continued success and growth of your business, it's imperative that you implement a video content strategy, if you haven't yet done so.

 

Below we've listed the main reasons why we believe you need to implement a video content strategy for your business -

 

-It's What Your Clients Want!

 

All today's trends point towards the fact that your customers and potential customers want video from you; and if you don't give your customers what they want, someone else will.

 

-Less Time - More Content

 

In just of short period of time you can communicate a lot of information via video. In fact, research shows that watching one minute of video is equivalent to reading 1.8 million words!

 

-Assists with Branding

 

Branding can be a very complex business, and videos are ideal for crafting and shaping your brand. It's a lot easier to convey emotions and add different attributes to your brand with a video than it is with photos and text.

 

-They're Multipurpose

 

It's not only on their website that businesses use videos; they use other online channels as well, like social media platforms and YouTube. Videos can also be used for email marketing campaigns, for presentations in off-line settings, and on televisions in waiting rooms.

 

-Improved Website Quality

 

A well put-together video improves the overall quality and efficiency of any website.

 

-Highlights Your Profile and Personality

 

Clients respond to videos created with a personal touch, so businesses can use video to project a more human and personal profile to their clients. Doctors and lawyers are able to present a less formal approach through video, something clients appreciate and respond to.

 

-Email Marketing

 

Compared to static emails, videos used in email marketing generate between two and three times higher click-through rates.

 

-Videos Are the Way of the Future

 

Today, most smartphones and other mobile devices are already optimized for video consumption, which means that when you provide content in video format, you're automatically differentiating yourself from your competitors.

 

 

Today, we're seeing video as one of the key methods for communicating messages to clients.

Choosing the Right Graphic Designer

 

The right graphic designer can help your business achieve its ultimate visualization communication goals, but you must know what to look for when choosing a graphic designer.

 

Below we've listed some helpful tips on choosing the right graphic designer for your project:

 

Experience

 

Experience is paramount when choosing your graphic designer. Professional graphic designers only survive in this highly competitive field when they're providing their clients with top-quality service, and one of the key factors in determining this is the length of time they've been in business.

 

Design Portfolio

 

Your decision in selecting the right graphic designer should not be too difficult once you've seen some design samples: from these samples, you should gain good insight into previous work that's been completed; plus, you'll see if the work a particular designer produces is what you're actually looking for.

 

The Design Process

 

There are various steps involved in the process of completing a project and showing it to clients. In order to determine the effective flow of work, it's important to note the ease of use and readiness of the designer's system that's in place. You need a proper history of all conversations which took place both before and after the design process, and you don't have time to waste in lost emails.

 

Testimonials

 

Testimonials can be very helpful when trying to determine what a designer will be like to work with, so don't hesitate to ask for references. You're looking for designer's clients you can contact personally; people who can confirm their satisfaction in working with that designer.

 

The right graphic designer for your project will be able to create ideas for a specific purpose and help visually express your business's objectives. Your message should be clear, so the outcome must be thoughtful, visual communications.

Videos Have Become a Powerful Marketing Tool

It was the Greek philosopher Heraclitus who said that "Change is the only constant in life", pointing out that nothing ever stays the same. This famous quote applies to every area of our lives, including technology, and we especially see these changes in the way online content is promoted and marketed. Today, digital marketing has become a fair and open field, available to any advertiser who has the knowledge and expertise to use the tools available to him.

 

Until quite recently, blogging and content were the primary ways of digitally marketing products, and these are still very valuable assets. However, today it's all about video marketing, which has become the latest-and-greatest powerful tool for digital marketing.

 

So, let's take a closer look at why videos have become such a dynamic marketing tool.

 

No. 1: Video Boosts Conversion Rates and Sales

 

Any type of online marketing aims to achieve high conversion rates and sales, and it appears that, today, video is playing a very important role in achieving these outcomes. Studies show that, when you embed a product-related video on your promotion page, conversion rates increase by a massive 80%! This statistic alone highlights the importance of using video as a marketing tool.

 

Another interesting statistic is that using Explainer Videos can lead to an increase in sales of up to 74% when compared to products with no explainer video. And that's why marketers are using explainer videos in a number of different ways, and with an increasing number of different products and services. Our Tip: If you're writing a blog and want to attract more viewers, add a video!

 

No. 2: Using Video Results in Increased Return on Investment

 

As a business owner, if you're investing money in advertising then you're looking for a great return on that investment. Videos are proven to produce great results, resulting in increases in both conversions and sales. A recent study showed that 83% of companies who used videos embedded in their content achieved greater returns on their investment.

 

No. 3: Video Leads to Consumer Trust

 

One of the downsides of digital marketing is the amount of fake content placed on the web. Of course, all this fake content makes it difficult for genuine advertisers to be believed and trusted by viewers. Today, we see video as providing a great filter, separating fake content from genuine content. With customers beginning to trust advertisers again, it follows that there will be a massive increase in conversions and sales.

 

No. 4: Videos Are Great for Search Engine Optimization

 

It seems that Google likes videos, because they've started rewarding websites who embed videos in their content. These websites are now ranking higher than websites who have no videos. Of course, search traffic will always be an important source of visitors to any website, but the fact that Google is rewarding videos is a very welcome change. Statistics are showing that, by adding just one video, your chances of being ranked higher increases a whopping 53 times. That's a figure certainly worth considering!

 

No. 5: Video Boosts Your Chances of Being Shared on Social Media

 

When you create an interesting and informative video, your chances of being shared on social media increase dramatically. Viewers are attracted to video, and if you create a humorous, animated video, the chances of your video being shared increases dramatically.

 

No. 6: Mobile Users Love Video!

 

Most people today are using their mobile devices to access the Internet, and videos have become their number one target. With mobile being so important when it comes to digital marketing, simply add a video and watch the boost in your mobile conversions!

 

No. 7: Video Appeals to Users Tired of Reading Boring Content

 

Many people are not interested in reading content; they find it boring, or they don't believe what they're reading. On the other hand, provide these same people with an engaging video and you'll find they're happy to watch it. That's a fact that successful marketers simply can't ignore.

Some history on the Website Design Services Industry

 

Website Designer

Web design encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardised code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization. Often many individuals will work in teams covering different aspects of the design process, although some designers will cover them all. The term web design is normally used to describe the design process relating to the front-end (client side) design of a website including writing mark up. Web design partially overlaps web engineering in the broader scope of web development. Web designers are expected to have an awareness of usability and if their role involves creating mark up then they are also expected to be up to date with web accessibility guidelines.

 

Web Designer Tools and technologies

 

Web designers use a variety of different tools depending on what part of the production process they are involved in. These tools are updated over time by newer standards and software but the principles behind them remain the same. Web designers use both vector and raster graphics editors to create web-formatted imagery or design prototypes. Technologies used to create websites include W3C standards like HTML and CSS, which can be hand-coded or generated by WYSIWYG editing software. Other tools web designers might use include mark up validators and other testing tools for usability and accessibility to ensure their web sites meet web accessibility guidelines.

 

Skills and techniques

 

Marketing and communication design

 

Marketing and communication design on a website may identify what works for its target market. This can be an age group or particular strand of culture; thus the designer may understand the trends of its audience. Designers may also understand the type of website they are designing, meaning, for example, that (B2B) business-to-business website design considerations might differ greatly from a consumer targeted website such as a retail or entertainment website. Careful consideration might be made to ensure that the aesthetics or overall design of a site do not clash with the clarity and accuracy of the content or the ease of web navigation, especially on a B2B website. Designers may also consider the reputation of the owner or business the site is representing to make sure they are portrayed favorably

 

User experience design and interactive design

 

User understanding of the content of a website often depends on user understanding of how the website works. This is part of the user experience design. User experience is related to layout, clear instructions and labeling on a website. How well a user understands how they can interact on a site may also depend on the interactive design of the site. If a user perceives the usefulness of the website, they are more likely to continue using it. Users who are skilled and well versed with website use may find a more distinctive, yet less intuitive or less user-friendly website interface useful nonetheless. However, users with less experience are less likely to see the advantages or usefulness of a less intuitive website interface. This drives the trend for a more universal user experience and ease of access to accommodate as many users as possible regardless of user skill. Much of the user experience design and interactive design are considered in the user interface design.

 

Advanced interactive functions may require plug-ins if not advanced coding language skills. Choosing whether or not to use interactivity that requires plug-ins is a critical decision in user experience design. If the plug-in doesn't come pre-installed with most browsers, there's a risk that the user will have neither the know how or the patience to install a plug-in just to access the content. If the function requires advanced coding language skills, it may be too costly in either time or money to code compared to the amount of enhancement the function will add to the user experience. There's also a risk that advanced interactivity may be incompatible with older browsers or hardware configurations. Publishing a function that doesn't work reliably is potentially worse for the user experience than making no attempt. It depends on the target audience if it's likely to be needed or worth any risks.

 

Page layout

 

Part of the user interface design is affected by the quality of the page layout. For example, a designer may consider whether the site's page layout should remain consistent on different pages when designing the layout. Page pixel width may also be considered vital for aligning objects in the layout design. The most popular fixed-width websites generally have the same set width to match the current most popular browser window, at the current most popular screen resolution, on the current most popular monitor size. Most pages are also center-aligned for concerns of aesthetics on larger screens.

 

Fluid layouts increased in popularity around 2000 as an alternative to HTML-table-based layouts and grid-based design in both page layout design principle and in coding technique, but were very slow to be adopted. This was due to considerations of screen reading devices and varying windows sizes which designers have no control over. Accordingly, a design may be broken down into units (sidebars, content blocks, embedded advertising areas, navigation areas) that are sent to the browser and which will be fitted into the display window by the browser, as best it can. As the browser does recognize the details of the reader's screen (window size, font size relative to window etc.) the browser can make user-specific layout adjustments to fluid layouts, but not fixed-width layouts. Although such a display may often change the relative position of major content units, sidebars may be displaced below body text rather than to the side of it. This is a more flexible display than a hard-coded grid-based layout that doesn't fit the device window. In particular, the relative position of content blocks may change while leaving the content within the block unaffected. This also minimizes the user's need to horizontally scroll the page.

Some history on the Graphic Design Services Industry

 

Graphic Designer

Graphic design is the process of visual communication and problem-solving through the use of typography, photography and illustration. The field is considered a subset of visual communication and communication design, but sometimes the term "graphic design" is used synonymously. Graphic designers create and combine symbols, images and text to form visual representations of ideas and messages. They use typography, visual arts, and page layout techniques to create visual compositions. Common uses of graphic design include corporate design (logos and branding), editorial design (magazines, newspapers and books), advertising, web design, communication design, product packaging and signage.

 

Applications

 

From road signs to technical schematics, from interoffice memorandums to reference manuals, graphic design enhances transfer of knowledge and visual messages. Readability and legibility is enhanced by improving the visual presentation and layout of text.

 

Design can also aid in selling a product or idea through effective visual communication. It is applied to products and elements of company identity like logos, colors, packaging, and text. Together these are defined as branding (see also advertising). Branding has increasingly become important in the range of services offered by many graphic designers, alongside corporate identity. Whilst the terms are often used interchangeably, branding is more strictly related to the identifying mark or trade name for a product or service, whereas corporate identity can have a broader meaning relating to the structure and ethos of a company, as well as to the company's external image. Graphic designers will often form part of a team working on corporate identity and branding projects. Other members of that team can include marketing professionals, communications consultants and commercial writers.

 

Textbooks are designed to present subjects such as geography, science, and math. These publications have layouts which illustrate theories and diagrams. A common example of graphics in use to educate is diagrams of human anatomy. Graphic design is also applied to layout and formatting of educational material to make the information more accessible and more readily understandable.

 

Skills

 

A graphic design project may involve the stylization and presentation of existing text and either preexisting imagery or images developed by the graphic designer. Artistic pieces can be incorporated in both traditional and digital form, which involves the use of visual arts, typography, and page layout techniques for publications and marketing. For example, a newspaper story begins with the journalists and photojournalists and then becomes the graphic designer's job to organize the page into a reasonable layout and determine if any other graphic elements should be required. In a magazine article or advertisement, often the graphic designer or art director will commission photographers or illustrators to create original pieces just to be incorporated into the design layout. Or the designer may utilize stock imagery or photography. Contemporary design practice has been extended to the modern computer, for example in the use of WYSIWYG user interfaces, often referred to as interactive design, or multimedia design. Another aspect of graphic design is to have good research skills, analyzing a work of art and simultaneously seeing it in new ways. Graphic Design need skills such as power to convince the audience and selling the design. Communication is a key part in graphic design. The process of graphic design include the "process school" which is an approach to the subject that is concerned with the actual process of communication; it especially highlights the channels and media through which messages are transmitted and by which senders and receivers encode and decode. Semiotic School on the other hand, is message as a construction of signs which through interaction with receivers, produces meaning; communication as an agent. The process school is like the way in which a message is brought out to society.

 

North American Industry Classification System For Graphic Design Services

Some history on the Whiteboard Animation Video Services Industry

 

Whiteboard animation

Whiteboard animation is a process where a creative story and storyboard with pictures is drawn on a whiteboard (or something that resembles a whiteboard) by artists who record themselves in the process of their artwork. It is used in TV and internet advertising to communicate messages in a unique way.

 

Terminology

 

The term whiteboard animation comes from the process of someone drawing on a whiteboard and recording it. The actual effect is a time-lapse, or sometimes stop-motion. Actual animation is rarely used but has been incorporated. Other terms are video scribing, and animated doodling. These video animation styles are now seen in many variations, and have taken a turn into many other animation styles. With the introduction of software to create the whiteboard animations, the process has many different manifestations of varying quality.

 

Skills and techniques

 

Marketing and communication design

 

Marketing and communication design on a website may identify what works for its target market. This can be an age group or particular strand of culture; thus the designer may understand the trends of its audience. Designers may also understand the type of website they are designing, meaning, for example, that (B2B) business-to-business website design considerations might differ greatly from a consumer targeted website such as a retail or entertainment website. Careful consideration might be made to ensure that the aesthetics or overall design of a site do not clash with the clarity and accuracy of the content or the ease of web navigation, especially on a B2B website. Designers may also consider the reputation of the owner or business the site is representing to make sure they are portrayed favorably

 

Animation

 

Animation is the process of making the illusion of motion and the illusion of change[Note 1] by means of the rapid display of a sequence of static images that minimally differ from each other. The illusion—as in motion pictures in general—is thought to rely on the phi phenomenon. Animators are artists who specialize in the creation of animation. Animation can be recorded with either analogue media, a flip book, motion picture film, video tape, digital media, including formats with animated GIF, Flash animation and digital video. To display animation, a digital camera, computer, or projector are used along with new technologies that are produced.

 

Animation creation methods include the traditional animation creation method and those involving stop motion animation of two and three-dimensional objects, paper cutouts, puppets and clay figures. Images are displayed in a rapid succession, usually 24, 25, 30, or 60 frames per second. Computer animation processes generating animated images with the general term computer-generated imagery (CGI). 3D animation uses computer graphics, while 2D animation are used for stylistic, low bandwidth and faster real time renderings.

 

Video editing

 

The term video editing can refer to: The process of manipulating video images. Once the province of expensive machines called video editors, video editing software is now available for personal computers and workstations. Video editing includes cutting segments (trimming), re-sequencing clips, and adding transitions and other Special Effects.

 

Linear video editing, using video tape and is edited in a very linear way. Several video clips from different tapes are recorded to one single tape in the order that they will appear.

 

Non-linear editing system (NLE), This is edited on computers with specialised software. These are non destructive to the video being edited and use programs such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro and Avid.

 

Offline editing is the process in which raw footage is copied from an original source, without affecting the original film stock or video tape. Once the editing has been completely edited, the original media is then re-assembled in the online editing stage.

 

Online editing is the process of reassembling the edit to full resolution video after an offline edit has been performed and is done in the final stage of a video production.

 

Vision mixing, when working within live television and video production environments. A vision mixer is used to cut live feed coming from several cameras in real time.
