Social Media Videos

Great Video Is Social Currency

People find social videos to be more memorable and more engaging than any other type of content. If you want to increase exposure and conversions online, social media video marketing is crucial.

Indigo has helped companies like Sony Pictures, Anker, Formula E, Jeffsy, and Duracell earn millions of engaged views on social media.

Types of Social Media Videos

Product

A study by Hubspot showed that 55 percent of active online shoppers watch videos to make a purchase decision. And consumers who watched a product video on social media were 73 percent more likely to buy. 

Product videos on social media – whether a demo, a collaboration with an influencer, or an entertaining skit – are highly effective at boosting your conversion rates.

Brand Story 

Your company’s origin story and the “why” behind your brand is a vital part of the overall branding and getting a viewer to emotionally connect with you. If you’re a brand or organization on a mission, then this style of social media video can be an amazing way to grow an audience who shares in your beliefs. Indigo will bring your story to life.

Thought Leadership

Unleash your expertise! Creating educational videos can be especially useful for B2B or service-based companies with subject-matter experts. Most companies have many very smart people in the building, but they don’t have the infrastructure or time to turn all that knowledge into high-quality, high-value content. Indigo can help you become the authority in your space.

Explainer

“The confused mind always says no.” – Marketing Proverb

Not every product or service fits in a slogan or a tagline. Sometimes you need to do a little more to explain your idea or product or cause, and that’s where the explainer video can shine. With the right script and a visually exciting film, you can entertain people into clarity.

Give your prospects that, “Oh, I get it!” moment and immediately remove any confusion between you and your customer.

Case Studies

Any company can make bold claims to life-changing results, but people have become weary (and wary) of these blatant sales pitches on social media. The video case study lets you dive right in to the proof of your accomplishments. When people are wondering if you can do what you say, what better answer than, “Here’s how we’ve done it before.”

And forget any stale PowerPoint presentation. Through the power of video and animation, your results will jump off the screen and cut through any skepticism.

Social Video Ads

Apple, Nike, Old Spice… Brands have created some of the most iconic television experiences in history through advertising. Social media provides marketers with a whole new opportunity to get creative and get massive attention – faster than ever before.

But, unlike the one-size-fits-all TV commercials of the past, Indigo makes sure your social videos are tailored for each platform and for your ideal audience. 

Testimonials

Social proof is a powerful tool that lets the viewer genuinely experience how their life could be better. When your prospects are searching for a potential solution, being able to see that solution in action through another person can be highly convincing. 

The video testimonial is word-of-mouth marketing at scale, which is why it can be so effective. If you need to build credibility, desire, and authority with an audience, a testimonial social video can be an excellent choice.

Reviews

Indigo is truly a team; your team.  They jumped in with both feet to make something new and exciting happen and delivered exactly what I asked for but went above and beyond in quality, scope & creativity.  The head of the company and team is transparent, results-driven and highly effective.  So good I almost want to keep it a secret so I have them all to myself!  LOL.

— Senior VP of Worldwide Content

Indigo was straightforward, responsive, and ready to collaborate. This was my first time producing a live stream, and Indigo was patient with the multitude of questions - big & small - their response time was unparalleled. When it came to the day, we had an A+ crew from Indigo, and the stream went off without a hitch. Thank you, Indigo!

— Production Coordinator

Massively impressed with Indigo's work on our corporate animated explainer video. Starting with our (sad) script, they turned it into an engaging, visual, and attention-grabbing sequence filled with symbols and emotional attachment. Additionally, Max and his team are reasonable and good to work with...we'll be back for more video work.

— Managing Director

I'm constantly impressed by Indigo Productions, they're an amazing company.  As a Preferred Partner & Vendor here at Salesforce, they've created over 50 videos for us over the years.  Indigo has a great team of professionals whose work is consistently innovative, visually stunning, and most importantly, masterful in delivering a powerful message.
