We often tell clients that ‘the truth will set you free’.
The idea is that if the audience you’re interested in simply knew the truth about who you are, what you’re doing and the motivations behind it all, then they’d most likely be drawn to you and interested in working with you. Life would be easy!
Marketing sometimes likes to make a science out of the above with charts, graphics and maps and days away coming up with straplines and mission statements. What if there was a simple way of just showing people what we did?
Video can be a powerful part of that solution. The whole idea of ‘show don’t tell’ is very powerful. Ideally, you would capture video clips from all your activities day by day and then could cut them into a monthly update video which you would publish to give a flavour of what you’ve been doing. If you can’t get video, perhaps some still images could be used. At Comsteria, Emma often produces video out of still images clients share with us and with clever use of graphics, text, music, animation and transitions can really bring it all to life.
