Videos can be a great way to promote your business, increase brand awareness and increase your credibility within your field. 

But even if you agree in theory, creating these videos is a huge investment of time and energy that may not be realistic when you’ve got other things to think about. That’s why a lot of businesses turn to professional video production services, relieving themselves of all the hard work but still reaping all the benefits. 

In this guide, we’re looking at the best video production services in 2022, how they work, and what kinds of businesses they’re best for. 

TL;DR

  • Video production services are a great solution for enterprise-level videos of any kind
  • Video production services handle everything from A to Z, including ideation, recording, post-production, and editing
  • You can choose to create your own videos with tools like Riverside that help you to produce studio-grade videos from wherever you are. 

What are video production services?

Video production services are companies or teams that produce high-quality videos on behalf of a client. Typically these videos are made for a tightly-defined marketing purpose, but this has also extended into, training materials, video podcasts, and other formats too. 

The reason that video production services are so popular is because they cover every aspect of the video production process, from ideation, concept, creation, and post-production. All you need to do is weigh in with any ideas and approve the final version. 

What do video production services include?

Producing a video isn’t an instant process, it takes time, ideation, and collaboration. Let’s take a look at what video production services include: 

Pre-production

Pre-production will include ideation and research. They’ll soundboard their ideas and listen to yours, producing different video concepts and running them by you. There will also be some logistical considerations to sort such as inviting guests and scouting shooting locations where relevant. 

Production

The actual production is relatively straightforward. This is when your video production team will actually shoot your video and record any relevant audio. This could be on-location or remote, depending on the nature of your video. 

Post-production

Finally, your video production team will edit the video together ready for publication. This will include stitching together different segments (where relevant), editing out any irrelevant sections, adding branding and any other media to enhance the final product. 

Types of videos services produce

Once you enlist the services of a video production company, you can pretty much call the shots. They can produce essentially any type of video that your business might need across marketing, internal resources, and other content:

  • TV commercials
  •  Social ads
  • Long-form product intros
  • Employee onboarding material
  •  Video podcasts. 

How much does it cost to get a video produced?

This will depend on the company you choose to work with as well as the type of video(s) you want to get made. For example, 90 Seconds charges from $1,072 to $5,882 for a Standard Video Shoot.  

Is it worth hiring a video production service?

It depends on your budget and capacity. If you have a dedicated video budget but don’t have the time or resources required to produce your own, it makes a lot of sense. But at the same time, producing your own professional-grade videos doesn’t have to be as time-intensive or costly as you might imagine.
