The Power of Videos

Making videos can be fun and exciting but if you don't define the outcome, your chances of getting your intended results are slim.

I am to sharing a successful and humorous video we created as a case study to show how powerful it can be when your message and intent is well defined. We shot it with an iPhone in 1/2 a day.

We ordered ink pens as giveaways and they were defective. The vendor refused to offer a refund.

We Defined Our Outcome: A Full Refund

We knew our audience and concluded that the best way to show how the pens malfunctioned was to make a humorous video to accomplish our goal.

We received a full refund and were told to give the pens to charity!*

  • According to comScore the average user spends 16 minutes and 49 seconds watching online ads and that is a choice
  • If you aren't using video for marketing, then you are missing out on a huge opportunity to communicate your message.
