When’s the last time you heard a conversation about a great elevator pitch someone heard? Probably never.
Are you entertaining or boring your potential customers? Be memorable. This means you may have to be unconventional. Ditch the long copy. Make memorable videos.
Explainer videos are the hottest new marketing trend. They engage viewers in a short amount of time – and if executed correctly will convert viewers into clients. They’re different than ads. They use language that people aren’t used to, make you laugh with quirky subjects and keep your attention like nothing before.
