As we approach the close of 2023, we've noticed a surge of inquiries from clients eager to breathe new life into their existing videos. Businesses are keenly aware of the shifting dynamics in the digital landscape, and are seeking to revamp their content to stay ahead. At Purely Imagined, we've noticed a trend toward incorporating modern visuals and clear, concise messaging in explainer videos to captivate the contemporary audience. In this blog, we're diving deep into the essential components of a successful video update.

Why should I update my explainer video?

Consider updating your explainer video when there is a significant change or enhancement in the offered product or service. This could be due to technological advancements, a pivot in business strategy, or adding new features. An updated explainer video accurately represents these changes, ensuring potential customers have the most current information. Utilizing updated 3D product rendering techniques can also enhance the visual appeal and effectiveness of the video.

Market trends and customer preferences evolve. An explainer video might need a refresh to align with the changing tastes and expectations of the target audience. Incorporating modern animation services helps create content that resonates with the current market dynamics. It's also prudent to update explainer videos to maintain a fresh and contemporary brand image, showcasing innovation and leadership in the industry.

If the initial explainer video did not yield the expected results regarding engagement or conversion rates, it might be time for a revamp. Analyzing the performance data and gathering feedback can provide insights into the areas where the video can be improved. This might involve tweaking the script, changing the animation style, or incorporating a more engaging sales demo. Keeping the video content fresh and aligned with the brand's attributes and values, such as luxury and versatility, can foster community engagement and collaboration, ultimately driving better results.

When should I update my explainer video?

In our experience, businesses typically find it beneficial to update their explainer videos or marketing videos approximately every 1-2 years. This timeframe allows companies to stay ahead in the rapidly evolving market while also allowing them to incorporate feedback and insights gained from the performance of the previous videos.

Updating videos in this interval also aligns well with the usual cycle of product updates or releases, ensuring that the video content remains fresh and in sync with the current offerings. This periodic update helps maintain a vibrant and dynamic brand image, showcasing a commitment to quality and innovation.

What should be included in an explainer video?

An updated explainer video should prominently feature:

  1. Clear Messaging: Concisely convey the core message, aligning with the brand's mission and values to resonate effectively with the target audience.

  2. Modern Visuals: Utilize contemporary visual techniques such as 3D product rendering to captivate and engage viewers.

  3. Call to Action (CTA): Incorporate a compelling CTA that directs viewers to the next steps, fostering interaction and potential conversions.

By focusing on these key elements, your explainer video will be a potent tool in your marketing arsenal, effectively showcasing your brand's offerings and encouraging viewer engagement.
