“Why Hire A Videographer?”. It is a question that pops into a lot of people’s minds. Actually, even more so, it is a question that doesn’t even pop into people’s minds because many people don’t even consider hiring a videographer. I find this to be quite bizarre. Well, obviously I am a little bit biased with me being a videographer myself. I just find it amazing how so many people don’t even consider hiring a videographer for their events. That is why I have come up with this list of reasons to hire a videographer (no joke).
- A picture tells a thousand world, a video tells a billion. As cheesy as that sounds, its fairly true. When planning any events whether it’s corporate, a wedding or live event, people always put a photographer in their budget. Why not a videographer as well? The reason you would hire a photographer is for the fact of displaying the events that took place. What better way to do this other than video? The power of video is that options are endless. I have spoken with so many brides who regret so much not hiring a videographer for their wedding. They all tell me, “Sure the photos we got look absolutely amazing, but they don’t help us relive the day”. That is the great thing about video. It brings an amazing thing back to life for years to come.
- It’s effortless for the viewer. If you have a batch of photos, someway or the other you have to go through them. If it’s on a website you will have to scroll through them somehow and if you physically have them printed out, you will have to look one by one at each photo. People are lazy. It’s as simple as that. If the work is not done for them, then the chances of keeping their attention is minimal. Nothing appeals better to a visitor of a website than a nice to the point video on the main landing page. Why go through a number of different links on a website when you can have everything summed up for you in a nice 60 second video. This is what is great about video, it helps keep your audience amused.
- It puts a personality to the product or person in the video. When you look at a picture of someone, do you feel like you know them? I know I don’t. Now watch a 2 minute video of that same person. The odds are you are going to feel a bit more connected with them, given that they are good with interacting through the camera. Video is a perfect way for any brand or individual to get personal with their viewers or prospective clients. It shows that you care enough about interacting with them that you took the time to it down and “talk” to them through the camera.
- It’s easy to share. Uploading a batch of photos online can be tedious and hard to share with people. Video however is simple. There are thousands of site’s for you to upload your video and send the link to anyone you wish to view. It’s as simple as pressing upload, and copying and pasting the link to anyone you wish. This is especially important for couple’s who get their wedding videographed. Uploading your wedding video to YouTube makes it so easy for any distant relatives and friends who did not attend the wedding to relive it like they were there.
I could continue to list more and more reasons, but I think you get my point. Hiring a videographer for your event or wedding is something that you will never regret in the years to come. You will never look back and say, “Wow, I wish I didn’t hire a videographer”. You may however think back and say, “Wow, I wish I had video footage of that day”.
