No longer is corporate online video production only for bigger businesses with big budgets. But that doesn’t mean the small businesses should opt-in for doing video on the cheap. Here are a few tips to make sure you are getting the best quality corporate video production for your business:

Plan, plan, plan

Planning, referred to as pre-production by professional video production service companies, is THE most important part of business video production. Going over the day’s logistics, making sure that all the people on your team know what they are going to talk about… and what they are NOT going to talk about, what scenes, equipment and people need to be used and prepared. Nobody wants to come back and do another shoot because something was missing, as it will cost time and money. So being prepared will reap a ton of benefit to ensuring everything is captured and can be edited by your business video production services company.

Have good audio

Studies have shown that people will forgive less than perfect video, but will not forgive less than perfect audio. There are many types of audio devices available for those do-it-yourselfers and any professional video production services company should be coming to your shoot with more than one audio option.

Two cameras

Business people are not actors, and thus should not be reading a script. Even though a foundational element of getting a well thought out business video production is the fact that the people “know their stuff”, using two cameras will allow you, or your professional video production services company, to make the video more interesting and cut out many of the parts that might make the video drag on longer than it should go.

Proper lighting equipment

Lighting a set is an art unto itself. This includes both the amount of lights, the type of bulbs in the lights, and the accessories to control the lights. TV shows and movies spend lots of time and money on people and equipment to ensure the right lighting is in place for the right set. While your B2B corporate video production will probably not need that level of investment, there is a huge difference between a proper light set up that is matched to the level of light at your place of business.

Presently, the use of corporate online video production will put any company far ahead of their competition due to online video’s unique way of engaging and converting casual browsers into leads and paying customers.  But this won’t last for long.
