The vast majority of businesses offer products or services that provide a solution to a problem.
But what if your potential clients or customers don’t even realise that they encounter that problem? Maybe they’ve just been putting up with it and accepting that that’s just the way it is. And, if your audience doesn’t understand that they are experiencing a problem, why would they invest in your solution to that problem?
There are some amazing business out there, who’s problem isn’t one of being better, it’s one of being better understood.
Be Better Understood
Once your audience understands your offering and how it can be beneficial to them, they can make a well-informed decision to invest. All too often, companies lose out on business because their potential clients don’t have a clear understanding of their services or their value. They simply move on without realising the potential risks they face by sticking their head in the sand rather than addressing the problem. And they might not even have gone to a competitor, it’s just lost business.
If your competitors are savvy, they might have won the business because they explained their offering more effectively than you did, in a simple but engaging way.
Animations are a great way to educate your customers and ensure that your messages are always understood. I design animations that clearly lay out the problem and go on to present my client as the solution to this problem – helping them to be better understood.
Animation can explain even complex information more simply and efficiently than a face to face chat. It’s also a lot more engaging than a PDF or a long piece of copy on a website and, what’s more, it’s probably a lot easier to present it this way than having to write it all out.
Explaining your business and its merits to each and every prospective client can be incredibly time consuming, not to mention challenging if they don’t truly understand your offering. But, by conveying your message through an animation, your prospective customers can visualise your learning point in an easy to understand style. The learning cone suggests we remember 30% of what we see, 20% of what we hear, combine that into an animation and we remember 50% of what we see and hear.
