Choosing a Whiteboard Animation Company
You have decided to invest in getting a whiteboard animation made for your business and are about to embark on selecting a video production company that can make one for you – just the way you like it.
Regardless of what the size and industry of your business is, you could use a whiteboard animation to:-
- Launch or promote your products and services;
- Educate your staff or students on corporate and academic programmes;
- Create video versions of your whitepapers;
- Simply explain something that needs to be communicated in ways that are engaging to give something that adds value
When it comes to selecting a whiteboard animation production company, there are several factors which you could consider before you actually hire one.
Here’s what we think would help you with this (often daunting) process.
Does the website enable easy navigation? Do the tabs, buttons, hyperlinks work properly?
Does the language used come across as dull and vacuous, or does it engage and intrigue you?
Does the company have a steady amount of fans and followers in their online community that exists on various social media platforms?
Does the company come across as being interactive with their online community?
Does the company invite you, the visitor, to join their online community or to interact with them in some way?
Does their website have a corporate blog? If so, how relevant and frequent are their posts?
Does the owner or managing director contribute to the corporate blog? What are their posts like?
Does the website evoke creativity, inspiration, ideas and enthusiasm?
The Overall Image
You would probably get a fair idea of what the overall image of the video production company is like in your initial exchanges.
Do the staff have telephone manner that is professional, genuine and enthusiastic?
Are all your queries answered satisfactorily? If not, are steps taken to ensure that your queries are resolved? How long does that take?
Does the video production company offer to send you a proposal or a choice of potential ways by which your whiteboard animation could be made?
Does the information given on their website synchronise with the information they give you over the telephone or in an initial meeting?
When it comes to discussing budgets and pricing do they come across as pushy, or indecisive, or confident and justified?
Do they listen to you? Do they ask relevant questions about your business and your preferences for the whiteboard video? Do they ask to see your website, for instance?
Does the video production company have a credible portfolio of work? Is it on display on their website, for (potentially) the world to see, or do you get access to it when you request to see it?
Does their portfolio cover whiteboard animation? Does it have a wide range of great videos or a select few that wow you?
Are there any examples of whiteboard animation that tally with what you have in mind for your own business?

It would certainly help them in gauging what you would like your whiteboard animation to come across as.
