Explainer Videos

Typically focused on the product or service your company offers, explainer videos are a more specialized type of brand video. They are created with the intent to describe how your product or service solves a problem for the viewer. Additional details about your company such as its culture and what it stands for are also naturally shared within the videos.

Each of these explainer videos are made with a key goal. Though the name may sound self-explanatory, these videos dive deep into the process of clarifying how to use a product, the story of a brand, or how a service solves a necessary problem.

What is an Explainer Video?

As you begin to add video to your marketing arsenal, the use of explainer videos should be one of the options at or near the top of your list. These promotional videos are some of the most fun and consumer-centric styles among the possibilities. They are meant to be imaginative and entertaining regardless of the topic.

Explainer videos explain the key features of a product or service and the benefits a customer receives when using it. And no matter the product or service, a reliable explainer video company will know exactly how to highlight the most interesting things about it. Effective videos will showcase the unique features of the product and how they benefit the customer by using great visuals and a well-scripted explanation.

These videos are typically brief, with an average length between 30-90 seconds and often less than 200 spoken or written words. The video can be live-action, animated, or whiteboard-style and feature either a voiceover or on-screen text to share the information. Top Notch Cinema also uses motion graphics, another cool feature that gives your explainer videos a high-end look.

One of the most common uses come in the form of “how-to” videos that explain the process or methods involved with the use of your product or service. They present a great opportunity to display the personality of your brand, achieve your marketing objectives, and focus on your target audience.

Types of Explainer Videos

With the ability to use them in a multitude of unique ways, explainer videos have the potential to be shared on nearly any online platform you can think of. Add it to a landing page on your website. Use one as part of a social media ad campaign. Incorporate an explainer video into your email marketing efforts. Or promote one as a piece of your outreach ads.

Regardless of how you choose to use them, you’ll find many types of explainer videos to choose from that could easily fit your needs and brand.

Live-action Explainer Videos

Using a human to explain your product or service is the best way to build trust in the products and services you’re selling, while also expanding the authority of your company in general. Whether it’s a hired actor, the business owner, or an outgoing team member, they can keep viewers engaged with charming, useful content.

How-To Videos

This type of explainer video is often used as your consumer nears or completes the end of the purchase process. Once they buy a product or pay for a service, how-to videos are designed to help them learn how to use it in a simple, engaging way.

Testimonial Videos

One of the most powerful ways to boost your credibility and increase trust in your brand is with videos of your dedicated, happy customers sharing stories and details about their good experiences working with you.

Demo Videos

Though they are similar to how-to videos, a demo video goes into deeper details about your product or service to ensure the viewer understands as much about it as possible before making their purchase.

FAQ Videos

Do you already have an FAQ page on your website? Add video to these questions to save your site visitors time, while also giving them an engaging way to get answers to any of their inquiries regarding what you have to offer.

Animated Explainer Videos

Presented in either 2D or 3D, animated explainer videos are a creative and engaging way to describe the benefits of a product or service, as well as provide additional details about your company.

Whiteboard Explainer Videos

You’ve likely seen at least one clip of a person drawing out the details of a company with a dry-erase marker. Whiteboard videos are especially great for educational purposes.

Michael Iakovou

“Point blank… Hiring Top Notch Cinema to do my firm’s commercial was the best marketing decision I ever made. My biggest fear was paying for and getting another one of those corny law firm commercials. Top Notch Cinema calmed my fears and immediately went to work with an efficient, cost effective strategy. I gave them a brief description of what i wanted and they turned my vision into commercial gold. They put a face to the firm I have worked tirelessly to build, and my clients have noticed. Time and time again I get compliments upon initial intake of clients.”

Mike Tropper

“I had interviewed many videographers before choosing to go with Top Notch Cinema. From the moment I spoke with Greg, I knew that he was the person to meet the challenge. I had looked at sample videos from videographers from bigger production companies with more years of experience, but TNC’s samples were just, well… better. A lot better. Greg really knows how to be resourceful and use creativity to make your video look and sound far above its budget. He put so much enthusiasm, passion, and attention to detail into my video. One last thing worthy of mentioning. Greg is someone that focuses on the solution. He is a can-do guy and will never tell you about a problem or limitation without suggesting a solution. I eagerly look forward to hiring TNC for my next video project.”

Preston Brown

“Top Notch Cinema talks the talk and walks the walk! Their company name speaks volumes for the kind of service they provide- Top Notch- from start to finish. It was an absolute pleasure to work with their team. As I am someone with no experience in this venue, they did the perfect amount of hand holding while still adding their expertise to ensure we ended up with the best product possible. Communication was effortless even though we live on opposite sides of the country. Responsive and professional. They were spot on with their timeline and held true to every commitment with a meeting or chat. We absolutely love the video they created and are certain that it will be hugely beneficial to our growth and visibility. Can’t say enough good things about them! Thanks to everyone.”

They all have one thing in common: each one had a branding video that was designed and distributed by us. A short time after these videos were publicly shown, these start-up organizations received their profitable solicitations.”
