As attention spans decrease (guilty!) and there are more contenders vying for our attention, standing out and getting your voice heard in a crowded market can be difficult.
Animation, or motion graphics can work as a the leading lady or in a supporting role in your video production, to grab attention, inform, educate and resonate with the viewers.
Why’s animation so helpful as part of your video marketing strategy? Let’s look into it:
Simplifying Complex Concepts
Some ideas or concepts are challenging to explain quickly by other means. Animation provides a solution by simplifying complex topics through visual storytelling. By breaking down intricate processes, demonstrating abstract concepts, or illustrating product functionalities, animation helps viewers understand and connect with information more easily. It offers a visual solution that simplifies communication, making it accessible to a broader audience.
Enhancing Brand Personality
Every brand has a unique personality, and animation can be a powerful tool to express and enhance it. Whether you want to convey a sense of playfulness, sophistication, or trustworthiness, animation allows you to create characters, visual styles, and narratives that align with your brand identity. By infusing your marketing materials with animated elements, you inject life and personality into your brand, making it more relatable and memorable to your target audience.
Increased Engagement and Shareability
Animation is inherently captivating, leading to higher levels of engagement from viewers. Animated videos or interactive content have been shown to generate more shares, likes, and comments on social media platforms compared to static content. The engaging nature of animation encourages viewers to interact, share, and spread your message, thereby increasing your brand's reach and visibility. Not to mention it works on mute. Like when people are scrolling on socials. Don’t let them scroll past!
Versatility Across Platforms
Animation is versatile and adaptable to various marketing channels and platforms. Whether it's explainer videos, social media ads, website banners, or even email marketing campaigns, animation can be tailored to suit the requirements of each platform. Its compatibility across different mediums ensures that your message can reach your audience wherever they are, maximizing your marketing efforts' effectiveness.
Saving perhaps the most useful part for last - it’s not necessarily exciting, but it’s useful. Very useful.
Things change in life. Names, figures, dates, performances, features. With animated videos, we don’t have to wheel out a production truck to update your video. Let us know what needs to change, we can dust off the project from archives, and have your updated video back to you in a flash. Super easy! And we can do the same next year, and the year after that. No avocado bathrooms to worry about getting rid of here!
