Animated Explainer Videos have been a mainstay of digital marketing strategies for a few years now, and it has since widened its net to cover more areas where it can be utilised. At Spark Motions, we believe in the power of the visual storytelling medium which is animated explainer videos, and here we share five great ways you can use explainer videos in your marketing and business strategy.
1. Product Demonstration
A product demo using an animated explainer video can be a great part of your launch strategy. An animated explainer can showcase the workings of your product in a fun yet informative way. A mix of colours, shapes, and graphic text can constitute a great and memorable experience for your prospective clients.
2. Employee Training
How many times do you just chuck away the lengthy manuals that come with a product or a service? Why do you do that? The answer is simple- They're boring to read! Animating such manuals about your organisation's tools and processes can be a great way to make sure that your employees grasp those crucial concepts quickly and effectively. And moreover, this can also save you a lot of resources in the long run!
3. Investment Pitch
Pitching for investment can be quite nerve-wracking. Especially when there's a lot at stake. Why not start your pitch with an animated explainer to set the mood? Once you have thoroughly captivated the panel with the carefully structured explainer video, you'll feel a definite boost in your confidence. And that's when you jump in, and finish the job!
