If you’re in a position where you need to pitch an explainer video or series, here are some persuasive points you can share to get your leadership on board for creating a video.


Explainer Videos have amazing ROI

At Next Day Animations, our team can help you think through how your videos fit into your overall strategy to maximize your value.

With one investment, you get something you can use over and over again. The only limit on where you can share an explainer is your imagination. (Not to mention that video content can give your SEO a serious boost.)

Explainer videos are also very inexpensive to update. Editing your animation to add in your refreshed logo or reflect that updated branding won’t require breaking the bank for a re-shoot or complete overhaul; this makes animation a reliable choice.


Explainer Videos are proven

Explainer animations are shown to drive engagement, comprehension and behavioral change. 

If you’re looking to influence your audience’s actions, there’s no more efficient way than a persuasive video.

Consider a video for sharing your company’s mission, like this one we created last year.


Explainer Videos save you time

Does your organization spend a lot of time answering the same FAQs or troubleshooting the same issues over and over?

Think how free you’ll be to focus on other things when a video does the explaining for you. Videos are perfect for things like your company mission, FAQ pages, or landing pages for specific products.

They say time is money – looks like another bullet point for your ROI slide!
