Gisteo creates animated explainer videos for any mission, vision or purpose. One of our favorite verticals happens to be nonprofit organizations. Our nonprofit video production services are designed to help organizations distill complex messages into concise, compelling and shareable videos to help them better communication your cause.
Here are just a few ways animated videos can benefit your non-profit organization.
- Educating the public: depending on what your non-profit does, your mission might not be easy to grasp or immediately understood by the general public or by and potential donors. If your audience doesn’t understand a particular disease, cultural challenge, political issue etc., it can be difficult to generate interest and involvement. Explainer videos are a great to educate people and ensure that your audience gets the “gist” of why your organization exists.
- Spreading the word: not every cause is a household name like UNICEF, Greenpeace, United Way or others that have spent years and millions of dollars marketing to the public. Animated videos can be a great way to generate awareness and get on peoples’ radars. These videos can help you efficiently and quickly spread the word about what you do via your website, social media, conferences, email campaigns, advertising and other vehicles.
- Driving donations: if you’re interested in driving donations, a compelling non profit videos can motivate people to give to your cause. Be sure to include a clear call-to-action in your video so viewers know what to do and how to do it.
- Driving participation & involvement: in addition to just monetary donations, non profit videos can help you attract advocates who may want to get involved with your cause by giving their time, signing up for your program, donating their services or helping in other ways. Again, it’s important to make it clear in your video how people can get involved and exactly what you’d like them to do.
