cost

The costs of corporate videos are variable, so the question ”how much is corporate videos?‘” or “what are the costs of corporate videos?” will never get credible answers.

The same follows if you ask a price list of corporate videos or cost based on time-length.
Have you ever paid for a book depending on the number of its pages?

You will always be answered ”how much do you have?“, ” What is the budget for the corporate videos?

You can decide to make your films with film footage, with shooting in a few days, or shooting at different places, with digital effects and 3D animation, virtual.

As a reference you may consider that the price of a decent wedding video varies from € 1,000 to € 3,000, but you are probably thinking about a more interesting product than a decent wedding video.

The video of major industrial corporations or government entities have a price of € 30,000 minimum.

The major part of the corporate videos has costs between € 1,000 and € 30,000.

It’s like deciding where to go out for dinner: in a fast food restaurant, in a decent restaurant, in a restaurant downtown, or in a restaurant with a star chef.

It’s like deciding to buy a car: a small car, 0 km, a midsize sedan, a family car, a SUV or a luxury car. You could spend from € 4,000 to € 80,000.
There is not a price list for the corporate videos.

That is why it is important to plan your project well: you will not waste time, money and above all you will avoid disappointment.

First you must decide a price range of corporate videos.
Then ask for authorization for the budget that you had thought of investing.
The cost of corporate videos must be agreed by those involved in the administration or management.

Sometimes, however, it is not easy to make a budget for the production of a corporate videos or a industrial video.
But there are some simple steps to determine what is best for your business.

Indicate the budget immediately, even in an approximate way, you can also allow the production company to give you the realistic offers.

The best approach is to agree to set a value and then ask for different projects with different costs:
1) low budget proposals
2) the standard proposals
3) articulate proposals

For everyone receives certainly more options so that you could easily build one which best suits your expectations.

If you do not have a clear idea of what would be the price of corporate videos you first imagined, you can find a couple of movies that you like and ask for a quote for that as an example.

The audience

It is important to understand who your audience is: customers, investors, experts.
Your message will be a success only if it matches the audience who you are targeting.

Start typing a sorted list of potential audience who you would like to reach.
Then ask yourself what reactions you want to provoke, what information you want to disseminate and above all what information you want to be remembered.

At this point, do not forget your director (if you have one ..!).
He must want to be involved. Do not inform him at the end of work. Make him participate in the design and shooting.
If you do not do like this and at the end of the work your director will be dissatisfied, it is unlikely that you can produce a new version for free. You will need to revise the cost of corporate videos.

The choice of supplier

You had three choices:

1) a friend/relative/acquaintance
2) a freelance
3) a professional production studio

The friend will usually cost less (under the counter), will do its best and will provide you with a video of reasonable quality. It will be like a good video for holidays. It is the professional way to present? maybe not.

The freelance seems not expensive, maybe cash in hand, but he will always have to rent the equipments and any change in the process will then become a cost. In the end, you will not spend as “little” as you thought. In the future (which surely will) you could not edit your movie. The cost of corporate videos often change.

The professional production studio will accompany you with more people, it will have in its disposal of everything you need for a successful project and, in the end, if you have planned well your video, you will pay the same cost for corporate videos compared to free lance and you will have much better corporate videos at a lower cost.
