3 Key Fiverr Services that will Turbocharge Your Video Marketing Business
Layne McDonald, Ph.D.
There I said it. I know you probably have heard this before, and you probably think you're ready for it, but let's face it. Make no mistake creating videos can be very expensive. Most people who believe they are prepared for video costs often get blindsided by scale.
This happens all the time because, at first, you're going to make one video. That's what you thought you were going to do. You believe that it was so easy and so fun. You make video after a video, and guess what happens? Your costs skyrocket, and you only have yourself to blame.
The truth is a video's costs aren't just restricted to the script and the actual creation of the video. Different elements within the video can make it a much more effective persuasion device.
The problem is that the higher your cost becomes when you start incorporating these elements. Suppose you go about this in a very casual way. In that case, you might get stuck with a pretty hefty bill after the video production process.
This is why I suggest that you head over to Fiverr.com, the world's leading micro-outsourcing platform. Many people have a tremendous range of skills and can add immense value to your videos.
The best part is that they're not going to charge that much money. In fact, there are lots of service providers on Fiverr who only charge $5. I know it's hard to believe, but they're out there, and they do a fantastic job.
Here are three vital Fiverr services that will turbocharge your video marketing business and do so without breaking the bank.
Intro and Outro Services
Have you ever watched a professional video with a nice intro animation? Didn't it seem more professional compared to videos without such an intro? Similarly, have you seen a video with an outro or concluding animation? Don't those videos look more professional than videos that don't have that feature?
You may be thinking that such features will cost an arm and a leg. Well, think again.
At Fiverr, there are specialized services that will add custom intro and outro to your videos. Maybe it's a song paired with an animation. Perhaps it's some sort of concluding message. Whatever the case may be, you can get such excellent brand-building elements for your video without burning a hole through your pocket on Fiverr.
Even if you used voice-over or canned music for your video, you would still need sound engineering. Why? Suppose you're patching different multimedia elements into the same video. In that case, you need somebody to turn it into a smooth, compact, easy-to-process package.
You may be thinking that you can do this yourself. That's not that easy, nor does it naturally. There are tons of visual editing software tools out there, but just because they exist doesn't necessarily mean that you should use them.
You have to remember that your brand is on the line. That's right. What do you think will happen if you do a lousy job and the final product is rough on both the eyes and ears? Your brand will suffer.
In other words, you end up shooting yourself in the foot. Since many Fiverr services only cost $5, it's probably a good idea to let a professional sound engineer or editor take care of your video.
Whiteboard Animation with Voice-Over
There are lots of Fiverr services that offer an all-in-one package. They would take your video script and assign it to a voice artist who would voice the audio. Then the whiteboard animation is handled by another person. The team then delivers the video to you as a complete package.
Most of the time, this type of service is not $5. However, if you're really busy or do not have the skill set to do this smoothly, this may be a good option.
The key here, of course, is to find the lowest-cost service provider that delivers decent-quality work. With Fiverr, you can find such a pairing. It takes quite a bit of searching, but it is possible.
