Looking for an instant answer to a question?
- How can an explainer video help me or my business?
Explainer videos let you summarize the highlights of your product or service in one or two entertaining minutes and your viewer stays attentive throughout the duration. Instead of working through long pages of sales letter, your client understands precisely how you can help them within the shortest time possible. Throw in a little humor, and it might even go viral. Having an explainer video is like having a 24 hour salesperson, everywhere on the planet, who always gets it right.
- How much will it cost?
Explainer videos are happening. They are easy to digest and a clever way to present your project to the world. And the best part is that they cost less than you might think. Every project is different and we can’t commit to a specific price until we know your needs, but you can estimate that for a standard explainer video it will only cost a couple thousand dollars.
Gone are the days of $20,000 spots. 42Gurus provides its services for a fraction of the bigger studios. In fact, we wholesale our production to front end retailers who mark up the price, so coming directly to us will definitely save you money. The best action is to contact us a set up a free Skype call, an we can tell you straight away what it will take.
- How long should my explainer video be?
It depends. Who are your clients? What is your message? How and where are you going to distribute the video?
We all know that the attention span of internet users continues to get shorter. So you have to say everything necessary with as fewer words as possible. If you can accurately deliver the message and call-to-action in 60 seconds, all the better. Like Einstein said, keep it as simple as possible, but not simpler.
Generally speaking, under 2 minutes is the correctly sized bite for the internet. If you need more than 3 minutes, you might be trying to say too much and should consider multiple videos. We can offer discounts on multiple projects.
- How can I place an order?
After deciding upon the specifics of the project you would like us to create, we will prepare a quotation for you. Start by submitting the Creative Brief creative brief in order to provide us with more details about your company and project, and the story you want to tel. We’ll respond directly once it’s received and come back as soon as possible with a price an estimated time for delivery.
