Frequently Asked Questions?

Why not use stock footage?

Many websites offer stock video footage, either free or relatively inexpensively & they can be useful from time to time.  But relying on stock footage for all your videos is risky for two reasons - firstly, you are not able to showcase your own unique brand and specific products or team, and secondly, your competitors could be using the same footage in their ads, diluting the impact and benefit for you both.  

The power of video lies in its authenticity, which is why original video is far better for your marketing campaigns.

Do I need a videographer or agency?

No, you don't.  The beauty of Video Sherpa is that you can do all your own video production in-house.

I don't have time to shoot video?

When you see just how effective video content is for driving customer engagement and conversions, can you afford not to create video content?  Even outsourcing video production to an external agencies will take time - you have to write a brief, organise the shoot, review the draft footage and submit feedback - a process that takes 5 days on average.  

Creating this same video yourself in 3 or 4 hours, and retaining all the footage for future use, is a far more effective approach and gives your company a clear advantage.
