Located in sunny California, 981 Media offers its clients a wide range of services, from reputation management and marketing campaigns, to web design and high-end video production. The company’s clientele consists mostly of entrepreneurs and business owners, and 981 Media was looking for a fast and affordable way to create social videos for them.
The company previously used a common professional video editing tool which worked great for longer videos, but turned out to be inappropriate for making quick social media videos that contain a lot of text.
I had looked at several video making tools. Most were either not working from an ROI point of view or the features were not there. I had even thought about creating my own tool.
But after testing Wave.video for just a few minutes I knew that if I had built a platform in-house, I would want it to be like Wave.video.
“I had looked at several packages. Most were either not working from an ROI point of view or the features were not there”, said Austin Dwight, the owner and creative director at 981 Media. “I had even thought about hiring a developer to create one for me and then I got an email about Wave.video. After testing the product for just a few minutes I knew that if I had built a platform in-house, I would want it to be like Wave.video.”
981 Media is now able to create short social videos 5 times faster as compared to the previous video making solution. The company uses Wave.video mostly to create Facebook videos and video testimonials for its clients.
Not only was 981 Media able to streamline the social media video production, but it also expanded its offering by adding services it couldn’t provide to its clients before. In particular, Austin and his team added client testimonial showcase videos to their portfolio.
“Prior to Wave.video, it was hard to make simple videos in a fast and affordable way, so we did not promote these types of video to our clients,” said Austin. “With Wave.video we can offer several short video packages to our clients which gives us a solid competitive advantage.”
