Read This Before Making an Explainer Video for Your SaaS Business!

When I bought an internet repeater a few years ago it came with two documents inside—a user’s manual, and a one-page quick start guide.

I love quick start guides because they are designed to save you time and get things running quickly. It only has the essential information you need and you can rarely go wrong following it.

This document is just like a quick start guide to help you get things right when making an explainer video for your SaaS business.

Here you will learn…

  • The most important component of an explainer video.
  • Why you may not be the best person to tell your story.
  • Why video style isn’t as important as you may think.
  • Why short and simple is the way to go.
  • How to effectively communicate emotion.
  • How to properly end your video.
  • What to do next after making your video to drive results.

I would highly recommend Charlie from SophieCreatives to tech startups who wants to make a fun yet professional video for the product introduction. Not only Charlie has a solid experience in video production but he is also an entrepreneur who knows what a startup needs. Charlie also has a very structured production process so that we could meet our tight deadline while ensuring the quality of our video. We also appreciate that Charlie takes our comments seriously and responds to our questions quickly.

A number of our clients have congratulated us on our explainer video which appears at the top of our homepage and I’m sure this made a big difference when they took the decision to work with us. It not only communicates what we do but the tone of the video is great at showing what we are like as people, which is important to a lot of our clients in choosing a company they feel comfortable working with.

SophieCreatives and Charlie were an absolute pleasure to work with. They provided A LOT of value to the creative process and was collaborative in the development of the script, right through to the final animation. We had a vision… they made it better. We had high expectations… They exceeded them. You are an absolute fool if you don’t hire Charlie and the team at SophieCreatives for your corporate or explainer video!

SophieCreatives was amazing. I would say that I wasn’t able to just give them an idea and receive a perfectly executed final product, it took quite a bit of feedback back and forth, but they were awesome to deal with. They were very patient, always took the time to make adjustments based on my requests and was good enough to push back on some items that he knew were heading in the wrong direction. I’d use them again for sure.
