The video that What a Story made has increased engagement on social media. The team was consistently responsive and transparent in providing feedback, which made for a seamless partnership. Customers can expect detailed explanations and an innovative approach.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I work on the business development team at a German financial solutions firm. We offer an online platform that facilitates trade financing for small and medium-sized businesses.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire What a Story?

We wanted a partner to help us create an explainer video for one of our financial products. We needed something that would explain a fairly complicated topic to an audience with limited prior knowledge.

The video had to be dynamic and befitting of a FinTech company. We also required that What a Story match the strict branding and design criteria that we uphold as a company. This includes not having real people featured in our videos.

What were your goals for this project?

We hoped to educate our audience about our product and ultimately drive sales. Our end goal was to have a video that our sales team could use to explain our product to potential clients. We also planned to post the video on our website so that visitors could educate themselves.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found Vikas (CEO, What a Story) on a freelancer platform and used him for a project in 2018. He was a very reliable partner and developed a solid understanding of our products, so it was a no-brainer to approach him again for this project.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

We had an original call with Vikas, where he asked us to explain the product in detail. He also asked for examples of where he would fit in as a customer to better understand what was required. After the call, What a Story sketched out a provisional storyboard, and we were left to come up with a script.

Once we had finalized the script, Vikas got started on a more detailed storyboard. After he finished the final version of the storyboard, we had a few back-and-forth conversations where he offered suggestions for improvement. Once we came to an agreement, the What a Story team started working on animations, voice-overs, digital effects, and sound mixing.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

There was ample room for feedback at every single stage of the process. This was perfect for us, not only because we were very specific in our requirements, but also because we had to make a considerable change as the video was approaching the final stages. All feedback was accepted graciously, and there were no serious creative battles.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We published the video a few days ago, so it’s too soon to tell what the overall outcome will be. We’ve enjoyed the increased social media traffic and followers that have come during the short time that the video has been online.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We were in near constant communication via email throughout the project. We frequently spoke with Vikas and our designer, and they reached out to our finance department when they needed more information.

Feedback and iterations were typically quick and seamless. There were occasional gaps in communication during the main animation phase because we had little to contribute in that regard.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

What a Story’s creative thinking was fantastic. It’s not always easy to take a step back and explain a design process, yet this is something Vikas can do easily.

We agreed with almost 80% of his original scenes because they aligned so well with our vision for the video. Vikas perfectly captured the other scenes, which were often complicated or technical, after only one round of feedback. We never had to explain anything twice.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Towards the end, the project dragged a little bit. There were a few trivial matters that we had to address before finalizing everything. Thankfully, we had a slightly flexible deadline. The video turned out great, and, overall, we’re very happy.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the assistant marketing officer at Ezenith Education. We conduct seminars that bring college students together with business leaders to bridge the gap between industry and the classroom.  

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire What a Story?

We approached ‘What a Story’ for complete brand development including a logo, stationery, promotional designs, a website, and explainer videos.

What were your goals for this project?

As a new company, we wanted to develop an identity and market presence and generate trust with our audience.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

One of my business acquaintances who’d used What a Story before connected me to Vikas (Founder & CEO).

Describe the project in detail.

They handled everything related to branding, from producing collateral (stationery, letterheads, mailing labels, and envelopes) to developing our website and introductory explainer videos. Every design maintained our color scheme and furthered our brand image. We’ve done several projects with them, and every experience has been great.

What was the team composition?

I mainly worked with Vikas and two of his team members.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We’re pleased with how our brand looks and have received lots of positive feedback regarding its color scheme. Our growth has been outstanding, and part of the credit goes to What a Story.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Vikas and his team members always manage our projects well, communicating efficiently over email and conference calls. They stay within budget and deliver the projects on time.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They were responsive and creative. Sometimes it felt like we were their only client because of the attention they give us.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I can’t think of anything. I’ll surely recommend them to others.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m a digital marketing executive for a large online party service provider.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire What a Story?

We engaged What a Story to create a promotional explainer video for our company.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to explain our services and offerings to new customers through a quick animated video (that also reflects our branding).

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I came across Naagendra (Business Development Manager, What a Story) through Clutch three months ago. What a Story’s portfolio impressed me enough that we hired their team to complete this project.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

We provided our video requirements first. What a Story came back to us with a script one week later. After making adjustments, the team began end-to-end video development—from storyboarding to the first mockup to the final video. They delivered a finished product within three weeks.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

What a Story coordinated the entire project independently from start to finish. The team provided constant progress updates and made any requested changes immediately.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The video has received positive feedback from prospective customers and stakeholders. We’re using it in our social media channels, sales pitch, and email marketing. We plan to launch it on our website as well. We couldn’t be happier with What a Story’s final product.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

I primarily interfaced with Naagendra, but I also interacted with a project manager for day-to-day tasks. Their team behind the scenes delivered all work on time and within our budget. We had an excellent experience collaborating with them.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

What a Story provided a high level of technical expertise for very reasonable prices. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, we’re highly satisfied with their work. What a Story was straightforward and flexible to work with. We’d happily work with them again for future projects, and we highly recommend them to anyone new to the production process.
