First up is I would like to post a few links on this blog to videos I have been making

Video links at bottom of page.

So Durban’s no 1 Video Company was very busy filming the Shongweni Farmers Market in Kwa-Zulu Natal.  The video summarises the experience at the market, from the delicious food, fresh farm products to the home made products.  The video is edited to Qadasi and Maqhinga music as well as has a few visuals of them performing to guests at the market.  The filming happened over 2 Saturdays from 6:30 am till 11 am.  Interviews were conducted with guests and store holders but the store holders were taken out during the edit as this could prove to be an unfair advantage for those storeholders that were interviewed.  It was a bit of luck that out of 7 visitors interviewed at the market 2 families were from overseas.

Have fun guys, see you soon.

Video as a Marketing Tool

Video as a Marketing Tool by Andrew Mills

“Video is a very powerful marketing tool that exists for marketeers both locally and internationally to consider.  Online video is quickly becoming the key means for people to satisfy their entertainment needs as well as information needs.  Businesses that do not acknowledge video production will definitely lose out on what video can offer and does offer  businesses that are grabbing this opportunity with both hands.

Most importantly video is all about content and if we look at the mass gains and likes of You Tube we know there are more than 1 billion users that log on and watch an accumulation of videos every single month and it’s growing rapidly everyday.

We know there can be bad videos with bad content and likewise one can also see great, well filmed professional videos and the relevant content that surrounds that area too so its very important to be relevant and utilize this portal to convey the message you want ultimately to your staff or key target audience

They say a picture paints a thousands words but with video it really can be a lot more for any potential business out there that really wants to get a grip of this effective medium

What we always need to remember is there is a lot of channels available to us and when it comes to content it is so critical so as a marketeer you have to think about your audience, who they are and how do you make your video content relevant”

CREATING TRAINING VIDEOS FOR NEW STAFF

For years our firm has been training our new staff by hand.  We really felt that doing things hands-on was the way to go, and while we were a small company it really made sense.  But as we grew we noticed that it was not the most efficient way to get things done, so we decided to look at ways that we could streamline our training system.

After consulting with a number of colleagues in our market, we determined that creating training videos was the most efficient way to train our staff.  Not only would we ensure that everyone had the exact same amount of training, but it would free up our company leaders to focus on their departments without interruption.

Corporate video production durbanWe sent out requests to a number of video creation agencies, and after entertaining many offers, we decided to work with GCV Video Productions.  GCV specialized in training video production durban and we leveraged their expertise to create our training programs.  They worked closely with our HR department and training managers to come up with a training program that would ensure that all of our new hires entered our workforce at the same skill levels.

The completed training videos delivered to us were professional quality and more than exceeded our expectations.  We will be implementing these training videos with our next batch of hires in early May and we are excited to see the results.  Working with GCV Video Productions was one of the smartest decisions that we have made this year.
