Here are 3 key things to think about when you’re looking to procure a video production company.
Do you have a budget set aside to spend on your video production? If not, go away and find out what you will have to spend. Even if it’s just a ballpark figure – this will help to give the video production company an idea of what they have to work with. The sort of thing they can produce for you for £4k will be significantly different to £40k.
What type of content are you looking for? Are you after an all singing all dancing company promo? A series of content for internal communications? A health and safety training video? It’s worth having this in mind when approaching your video
3: MAKE THE CALL
It’s always a good idea to speak to any company before you look to procure them. This will give you an idea of how professional they are going to be. Are they a one-man band that isn’t going to be around when you need them? Or are they a fully staffed, reliable team that will look after you from start to finish.
4: KEEP IT BRIEF
If you can create a short brief to give to your potential video production company outlining the aims of your video and what you’re wanting it to do, this will really help them to ask you the right questions to provide you with a proposal to suit your needs
5: TIMING IS EVERYTHING
When do you need your video by? Is it for an event? Is it to coincide with a website launch? Have a think about this. When you’re ready to get your video made, that’s the time to contact video production companies, you’ll have a need, you’ll be able to answer their questions and you’ll be able to get the process moving quickly.
