Why do I need an explainer video?

Statistics suggest that over 80% of businesses were able to increase conversions exponentially by using animated explainer videos on their home page. This is primarily because of the fact that an explainer video breaks down a problem and spells out the solution for a customer who comes looking for it. Rather than having to wade through large chunks of text page after page to find out what the company can do for them, they get to watch a simple, straightforward, and fun 2-minute video on exactly how the company can help them. This makes it easier for them to make a decision and call or place an inquiry. Other than that, here are a few more amazing ways in which animated explainer videos can immensely help you.

A large majority of the information that the human brain processes, is visual. Explainer videos make use of this very quality to convey a message to them.

Moreover, it is also scientifically proven that more than 60% of people are visual learners. This means they are more likely to understand a video than plain explainer texts.

On top of being visually appealing to viewers and making it simpler for them, explainer videos can be creatively made to invoke emotions.

Embedding a great explainer video on your home page can increase traffic to your website by a great deal.

This is because search engines favor video content. Their ranking factors consider video content to be a form of reliable information. Search engine bots and crawlers also easily recognize and scan video content, which gives your website a better chance to rank as well.

Results pages display good explainer videos from credible websites on top, which in turn gives you more click-throughs and traffic.

Explainer videos can also improve your SEO ranking

Explainer videos help simplify even your most complex products and services

Animated explainer videos allow room to explain even your most complex and dry offerings in a fun and engaging way.

A lot of potential customers are very likely to skip through to your competitor if your website is not clear or uses too much jargon. On the other hand, if your video is the first one that appears on search results, and explains the most boring service in a way that is understandable to the visitor, then you’ve probably already won the customer over.

For the same reason, such animated videos are specifically useful for companies that offer conventionally complex products or services. If your video can break things down for your customer, when similar companies cannot, that’s a surefire way to make them feel special and in turn, favor you over others.

The K3 explainer video production and creative team are trained to break concepts down and extract simpler digestible bits of information from large and complex subjects. We sit together and brainstorm unique ideas to present your offering in an easily understandable way to your audience.

An explainer video is an ultra-short video lasting two minutes or less, designed to simplify and explain a product or service in an easy-to-understand and engaging manner. It makes use of high-quality motion graphics and animation to deliver a message through a thoughtfully designed story and script.

It is essentially meant for potential customers or other users to quickly understand what a company or a product does.

A typical effective animated explainer video must have the following attributes:

  •         Ultra-short in length; lasting two minutes or less
  •         Clear and concise message
  •         A friendly and conversational tone of narration or storytelling
  •         Crisp explanation of basics
  •         Clear audio
  •         A focus on what customers stand to benefit from rather than product features
  •         A specific call-to-action for marketing

Animated explainer videos are meant to be used at the beginning of customer journeys. Alternatively, for sales funnels, they can be used at the initial discovery or consideration stages.
This is because the video allows your company to be discovered and considered by potential customers looking for specific solutions. For the same reason, it should ideally be placed where your potential customers are likely to look for a solution to their problem.

For eg. Home pages, product landing pages, service pages, newsletters, and the like are excellent places to display your video. You can also include it in your pitches, proposals, sales meetings, and trade shows as well, where you have a chance to introduce your innovative new product into the market.

Explainer video production, being a very subjective affair, takes different timelines depending on the message, the elements involved, the complexity of the idea, etc. However for reference purposes, on average, a simple animated explainer video can take anywhere between 8-10 weeks. This does not include the time for feedback relay and revisions.

For more complex videos and for animations requiring careful deliberation and revisions, we may take 10-12 weeks.

Live-action videos, with moving parts and 3D animated elements, can take 12 weeks or longer.

To start with, we require full details of your product or services, its features, and specifications if any, its capabilities, details of its target audience, and its benefits. We will also need the message intended to be delivered, if any. In addition, we will also need your brand information, your strategies, and your objectives with the product.

Our team will get in touch with you with specific questions to cover the discovery phase of explainer video production.

The cost of explainer videos is largely dependent on the scope of the video and the level of simplification required.
