Why Partnering with a Video Production House is a Game-Changer for Your Agency Mix

Maybe you have an agency.

Maybe you have a PR firm.

A communications firm?

An in-house creative team?

When it comes to marketing, there is no longer a clear-cut plan. One team can rarely do it all.

Brands are successfully building internal creative teams and augmenting them with boutique specialists. Escaping the old school clunky, compliant, and inefficient world where an agency of record did everything.

One key to the agency equation: video.

Video matters. Why? Because it matters to your audience. Whether it's an internal team looking for clear communication, a B2B audience at a tradeshow, or a B2C audience engaging on social media or OTT.

So if you don’t have a video specialist in your agency mix, it’s time to explore your options.

We all know video matters.

Video is an integral part of consumers' lives, with platforms like YouTube boasting billions of hours of video content viewed daily. It’s a powerhouse medium, one that businesses can’t afford to dismiss. Consider the following:

If you’re already working with an agency, adding a video partner may seem unnecessary.

But, unless you’re working with a big advertising house — with bloated budgets to boot — you’re likely not getting the proverbial bang for your buck.

The major benefits of adding a video partner?

  • Saves you time and money by handling all the aspects of video production, from pre-production to post-production, and delivering the final product within your budget and deadline.

  • Provides access to a wide range of resources, such as equipment, software, talent, locations, and distribution channels, that you may not have in-house or may be too costly to acquire.

  • Creates faster and more consistent video content that aligns with your brand identity, message, and goals, and that appeals to your specific audience and their preferences.

  • Offers industry knowledge and best practices that can help you optimize your video strategy, increase your reach and visibility, and measure your results and ROI.

It goes beyond video.

When you first think “video production” you might think lights, camera, action. But the best video teams offer more than video production.

Teams like ours are creative partners ready to understand your challenges and goals.

The right video partner won’t just help to execute production and post-production. They’ll help to level up your idea. Create a more clear message. Shape an interesting and memorable story. Lean into your brand. Connect with your audience.

It’s way beyond gear and the final deliverable. The right team will take you through a process that ends up influencing the rest of your campaign. Delivering static images, tagline ideas, copy language, and distribution flow.

You get the idea. It’s more than the technical aspects of video.

The Expertise and Experience of a Video Production Company

So onto the more obvious parts of a video production partner: their expertise and experience in creating high-quality videos. These companies have a team of professionals specializing in all aspects of video production, from concept and scriptwriting to filming and editing. Their years of experience and industry knowledge enable them to produce videos that stand out from the competition.

Consistency is key when it comes to building a strong brand image. By working with a video production company, you can ensure that your videos align with your brand's identity and messaging. Professional video content helps establish your brand's credibility and authenticity, which can significantly impact how your audience perceives you.

When your videos are visually appealing, well-produced, and consistent with your brand's tone and style, it helps build brand loyalty and recognition. Consumers are likelier to remember and engage with a brand that consistently delivers high-quality video content. By partnering with a video production company, you can create videos that resonate with your target audience and leave a lasting impression.
