OUR PHILOSOPHY

A post shared by Gisteo (@gisteo.videos) on

“Gisteo is first and foremost a marketing company.  We understand brands, businesses and people.  Unlike other firms out there that simply specialize in animation, we start with the bigger question: what message and overall approach will help connect with your target audience and take your marketing efforts to the next level?

We offer a high-quality product with fair, transparent pricing…and no B.S. We respond to customers quickly and finish work on time, every time. And, most importantly, we always aim to deliver more than what is expected.”

– Stephen Conley. Founder & Creative Director @Gisteo

7 DEADLY SINS TO AVOID WHEN CREATING YOUR ANIMATED EXPLAINER VIDEO

IS GISTEO THE RIGHT FIT?

We admit it: Gisteo isn’t for everyone. Here’s how to figure out if we’re the best choice for you.

WHO SHOULD HIRE US

√  You value experience and a company with extensive track record working with the world’s leading brands.

√  You’re looking for quality video and will pay a fair rate for a premium product.

√  You want to work with a firm that is fast, efficient and responsive.

√  You prefer working with a US-based company that fully understands Western cultural nuances & is available during your work day.

√  You seek big-agency thinking and skills but you can live without the bloated processes, unnecessary meetings/calls and exorbitant fees.

√  You want professionals who will listen to your needs while delivering expert advice, guidance and creativity during the entire process.

WHO SHOULD NOT HIRE US

X  You think experience is over-rated and you don’t mind serving as a “guinea pig” for an untested newbie.

X  You could care less about quality; you’re just trying to find a dirt-cheap solution.

X  You have time to burn and are fine if it takes months to slog through your production.

X  You’re ready to “roll the dice” and hope that nothing gets lost in translation while working with folks in faraway lands.

X  You crave the whole big agency “pomp and circumstance” and embrace paying 5x more for the work.

X  You don’t want guidance or creativity;  you just need an order-taker to execute exactly as you say…no questions asked!
