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.

You have demonstrated patience, perseverance, attention to detail and a rare ability to perceive what was needed even when we didn't. We are delighted with the site, it performs and looks great and our enquiry rate since it superseded our previous website has already increased by 20%.
It is clear from the enthusiasm and professionalism shown, that Digital Tsunami views each client as a long term partner contributing ideas above and beyond the development of the site and we look forward to involving them in future marketing initiatives.
I have enjoyed working with you on this important project and have been particularly impressed by your company's professionalism. The speed and accuracy of your work has been first rate and your creative input has been instrumental to the success of the project.
Thank you for the development of an updated brand image for Wah Yuet in China.
While originally contracted to produce a video highlighting Wah Yuet's manufacturing capabilities, it was apparent very quickly that your understanding of our requirements, combined with your experience, were the perfect fit to create a new logo and style guidelines for the company. While relatively small in scope, you were dedicated to the success of the project and I am pleased to say that you hit the bullseye!
