One of our fellow residents here at Seven21 Media Center is about to launch a brand new app they created for businesses to more easily invoice, track and manage overseas packages…and they chose Ellenbogen Creative Media to create the video to help sell it!
The infographic was requested by software developer, VISCO Software. In order to start selling the app, they had to have a one to two minute video made explaining what the app does. The video would be placed on the online storefronts for financial management systems operations such as QuickBooks.
Having never created a video, VISCO Vice Presidents and brothers Tim and Andy Peck, called on Ellenbogen to work our magic. When shooting is not involved and the created video relies solely on graphics, creativity plays a major role in the success of the project. Fortunately, our staff at Ellenbogen thrives on creativity and a good challenge! Enter editor Andy Pidanick, “Infographics make me smile. I love the challenge of taking an idea and making it a visual masterpiece. This project in particular was fun as it involved creating 3D images of shipping crates and other transportation objects…not something we do on a regular basis. Myself, Amanda and Alex bounced ideas off each other to end up with strong visuals supporting the ITA app. It’s a piece we’re very proud of.”
Andy Peck couldn’t agree more! “Working with the designer directly was a huge plus for us. Being able to see our feedback implemented quickly and correctly made the experience exactly what we were hoping for. The whole team used their creative skills but was very open to our input and adapted accordingly.”
The video project started out in the hands of VISCO VP Tim Peck, who thought putting a video together would be easy. “I put together a simple video that looked like a powerpoint presentation…it wasn’t effective or entertaining. We realized quickly that we needed help if we wanted to make sales! I don’t do video…I create apps and software. It was obvious that I should take a step back and leave the video portion to the video professionals!”
Ellenbogen CEO Jeremy Ellenbogen most enjoys the fact that a fellow Seven21 Media Center business looked within the building for marketing help, “We are a media center filled with almost every marketing resource you could need. We all turn to each other first for help in areas we don’t cover ourselves. It’s nice to see the camaraderie and networking happening right here under one roof!”
If only everyone would look to their neighbors for goods and services local business would thrive. I bet there’s an app for that!
