Video has impact.
Visually, emotionally, commercially and especially on SEO.
For intensely visual humans, the power of strong video lies in converting images instantly into emotions.
For search engines, conveying data by video elevates the ranking in organic search results.
Three videos which I have presented recently in LinkedIn, Facebook and other social media, are impeccable examples of the creative art.
On Valentine’s Day, I was reminded of the brilliant video in which sensitive performances provided subtle counterpoint to a dramatic use of Post-It notes.
At a tech meet-up, a discussion of video led me to recall a simple concept conveyed by balletic camera movements. A British video for The Sunday Times which merged visuals from iconic artworks, TV shows and films into one seamless sequence.
Air New Zealand (ever creative in their approach to safety videos) collaborated with Sports Illustrated swimwear models on location in the Cook Islands, to bring a quirky style to engage frequent flyers.
Brilliantly conceived and executed videos are being produced every day, around the world. The ubiquity of handheld devices has been a revolution for video, which can be viewed in high definition, in your hand, on demand.
Occasionally a video impresses so much that it ‘goes viral’ and is shared relentlessly. ‘Old Spice Man’ was one such example. A single spot initiated a long campaign. The awareness and revitalisation which that well-established brand attained was extraordinary, and exceptionally cost-effective.
The ‘cut-through’ that can be achieved for your brand with a novel approach to presenting your products and services, is immense.

I'm very pleased with my new website. Clean, crisp and well-ordered. Many thanks to Andrew and the team at Digital Tsunami for their speedy work and dedicated follow up, ensuring a glitch-free launch!
Foodbank has experienced unprecedented growth .. there is no doubt that the new Foodbank website, designed, built and maintained pro bono by Digital Tsunami, has been the principle tool in lifting Foodbank's profile. It is because our website is so engaging, that we have captured these donations. Foodbank just wouldn't be where we are today without Digital Tsunami.
The services provided included the registration of our domain name, establishment of our email accounts, and development & hosting of our website, were all executed rapidly and effectively. We also appreciate the service of upgrading our list of 150 shelf company names (in Chinese characters and English) every 2 weeks.
We valued the high level of creative design provided by Digital Tsunami, both for the website and the corporate identity.
I recently engaged Digital Tsunami to design and build my 60-page website. I'm a website copywriter who relies heavily on web-generated business, so my own online presence needs to be impeccable.
The solution that Digital Tsunami supplied is brilliant. It meets my needs perfectly; it's clean, bold, elegant, fast, and easy to edit. I've had lots of very positive feedback about it, and since launch, my request for quote rate and conversion rate have increased markedly.
The team at Digital Tsunami was incredibly responsive, delivering a solution well ahead of deadline. Their technical knowledge was exceptional, they were innovative, and they were very meticulous. What's more, they understood my business and technical requirements and translated them into a user-friendly, refined, professional site which is conceptually simple and cohesive.
I have no hesitation in recommending the website design services of Digital Tsunami to any business .. that needs a stand-out online presence.
