How to Pick Out the Best Vendor
Video content is a pillar that you can’t leave aside from your marketing strategy. Among the wide range of options video marketing offers, animated marketing videos stand out as a fantastic alternative. These brief and cool videos are one of the most engaging, compelling and also effective video formats you can resort to, to communicate your business idea. And, as a plus, do it in a fast, simple and persuasive way. The perfect mix!
So, you’re fully ready to start working on your own explainer video. Great. But how can you know which vendor will ensure the best quality and results? This is not a minor detail at all…
As you can imagine, there are many different factors that determine why a company can be considered the best one (or one of the best ones) in its niche. As a few examples, we could name expertise, quality of work, communication skills, focus (this is, having a true sense of which services they will offer and which ones they won’t), execution, customer satisfaction, and price, among many others.
From a general perspective, we can identify 5 critical pillars you should consider before making the final choice:
Quality and expertise: you should take some time to evaluate how the company works, review its portfolio and analyze if its animations are in line with your expectations.
Customization: a custom video is a must, as it makes a big difference between your video and the rest.
Feedback: it’s also important that you bear in mind the reviews, comments and general feedback other third parties leave, as a reference.
Price: depending on your budget available, you can go with an animated explainer video company that develops template videos, or with a company that develops custom animated videos.

They have 3 key promises in which they base their work: to establish reasonable timelines and stick to them; to keep the client informed during the video production process, and to fulfill every aspect of the job so that the client does not have to ask twice.
