In this video, learn why it is beneficial to go through the effort of creating a presentation video yourself.
- Traditionally, outsourcing was the only way to create good quality videos, but this course is all about doing it yourself. In case you need to justify that approach, either to yourself or to your manager, let's talk about some of the pros and cons. Firstly, making videos does not have to be expensive. Most smartphones these days include high-definition cameras which can produce surprisingly good results, and all the software you need is free. You can produce videos internally without it costing lots of money. Now, if you do have the budget for the really major projects, then hiring in a video production company is still a great option because you know that you'll get good results and you don't have to worry about it.
But the thing is, not every project has that kind of budget, and if you have the skills in-house, that means that you have the option of producing videos for everything, even the small projects that don't have those big budgets. The key thing, really, is having that choice. It means that you don't have to ration out your video productions only to a couple of really high-profile projects every year. It means that everything can benefit from that. And the other thing about knowing what you're doing with video production is when you do hire an outsource company, it means that you will speak their language and you'll get better results even if you're working with them.
Ultimately, being able to make this kind of stuff in-house means you can be more responsive and turn videos around very quickly as and when you need them.
