Wyzowl develops animated marketing videos, but also mobile app demo videos, web app demo videos, and pre-roll videos. As part of their work, they establish a step-by-step guide to meet goals, gather the client’s feedback in each phase, and always keep an eye on revisions to minimize adjustments in the end. As differentials, they offer fixed pricing and fixed turnaround times.
