Blue Bottom Line: (Why should I care? Why should I read on?)
  • Discover a way to quickly, simply and effectively communicate your companies value proposition to prospects.

  • Learn how to create and leverage your “Napkin Video” over the Web and social networking.

As a member of the TNNWC Group™ you have access to an entire suite of products and services to reduce costs improve efficiencies, and increase sales and profits. This week’s featured member company, Gist Video, is a Selected Service Provider of TNNWC Group™.

If you are still reading at this point it is hoped that the Blue Bottom Line above aided you in this decision. Rather than having to read half way through this article to determine if it actually applied to you…..the Blue Bottom Line gave you’re the essence of the information purported to be conveyed.

Now imagine if you could create a short video animation to convey the bottom line of your company’s value proposition to your customers. This animation would help prospects to quickly determine if they have interest in your offerings and guide them to their next step to do business with you.

Everyone has heard the stories of successful companies that have started from drawings scribbled on napkins while downing drinks at the bar. Some companies even have preserved and proudly framed these original sketches because they clearly captured the essence of their business concept in simple and understandable terms. These napkins represented the initial genesis of the company’s value proposition bottom line for their concept, product, service, etc.

Selected Service Provider, Gist Video, can help you perfect your company’s “napkin sketches” and then produce a two to three minute animation with sound track to showcase the essence of your value proposition. These short, to the point, reusable videos can be linked to your web site, posted on YouTube, added as a link on FaceBook or other social media, and be attached as a link in marketing emails. Whenever you need to quickly inform possible investors or business prospects about what you do and why they should care you will be ready with an effective, focused visual message.

The folks at Gist Video will work with you to design your “Napkin” story board. They will help you to refine your message to its most effective, understandable, and compelling form…..the true essence of who you are and why you are in business. Viewers will listen and learn as your “Napkin” is unveiled. Simply put, this is a cleaver way to accelerate people’s understanding of the “Gist” of what your company does.

The best way for you to understand what an animated “Napkin” message looks like is to see for yourself. The following are a couple of examples:

You know how effective some movie trailers can be to make you want to go to the theater to see them. They are short and to the point. Your Gist Video animated “napkin” video can be just as effective to capture attention and motivate people to take positive action.
