The energy industry is one of the fastest growing and most diverse industries in the global market. It is also one capturing innovation at a fast rate. No matter your role in the industry, video can play an important part of sharing information, gaining investor insight, working to develop solutions, or sharing concepts with industry leaders, local government, and customers. Here are a few ways video can enhance the energy industry.

Animated Videos for Extraction and Refinement

A meeting with local government or residents about a new system or tool can be hard to explain. Using animated video, it is possible to show how extraction and refinement happen. Use this type of video to showcase how you could do something or how you are doing it right now. Give those outside of the industry a clear picture of what is happening and how.

Use Animated Videos to Showcase ROI

Provide insight to investors and others in the industry about how any new investment can improve functionality, energy efficiency, or aid in development. It is possible to display ROI of any new investment, for example, by using animated videos. This breaks it down into easy to understand content and shows why a specific investment is ideal.

Demonstrate New System and Tools

Perhaps you are an innovator trying to get your product into the hands of the energy industry. Or you may be hoping to invest in new technology. Showcasing how these tools and systems work can open the eyes of any investor or company. It also provides insight into the benefits, functionality, and even challenges that new products can bring to any workspace.

Preserve and Share Industry Knowledge

The energy industry is growing and changing quickly, requiring a need to not just obtain information but also to share it. Keeping information available to customers, clients, investors, researchers, and others is so valuable but hard to do. With video, you can capture industry knowledge and maintain it long term in a streamlined, efficient manner.

Share Experience and Build Reputation

Video – whether animated, product information, or employee-focused, provides a way to build a brand and reputation. Energy businesses generally need to be able to share their brand image with the public. Showcasing talent, attracting new workers, and even simply ensuring shared information can help any business grow and thrive.

Video plays an essential role in the day to day operations of an energy business. It can be a simple, effective method of conveying important information.

We are in an age of high definition. People are getting high definition televisions, browsing on their tablets, kicking back in the cafe with their smart phones streaming audio. Movies, media, and multimedia content have evolved. Everyone is concerned about pixel ratios, sound quality, and the lighting of the last video on YouTube. Since everyone now has a camera – everyone is a critic. Quality is no longer subjective and as standards evolve, companies are trying to out-compete each other. What does this mean for you?

What Does an Audience Look for in a Video?

This means that you have to up-the-ante and provide to your audience a video that will appeal to them on many levels. You have to know what they want and give it as best as possible in the medium that most appeals to them. This means ensuring the video has crisp clear audio, a meaningful message and catchy graphics.

Upping your game can mean a lot of things. In house, it may mean revising your product and redefining your target market. For your Marketing and PR departments it may mean redefining ‘how’ you market to your audience. In today’s market there are some things that seem like a must-have from an audience perspective and having those will ensure that your project will be nearer to the quality the target audience has come to expect.

Getting a good video production company with a solid reputation for quality, could be the most important part of the production lifecycle. This company will most likely have very good equipment, lighting, and personnel and as such will ensure that their videos are crisp, clear, and of the highest pixel quality.

Good equipment, software, and production processes will ensure that voiceovers or background music production can be clear and well defined. A perfect accompaniment to the visual component of your product.

A meaningful story line or flow is very important. How do you feel when you watch a video? What kinds of emotions did it evoke? Do I now want to get the services I was just shown? These are questions you can ask yourself and your team and use them as a guide through the production process.
