When we think of animated web video, we generally think of promos and explainer videos, but that’s not the full extent of it. When it comes to animation, there are a lot of cool new things you can do, you just need a little creativity first.
So let’s think of business animations, how about an animated business card? What would that be like? Well here’s an example
The way it works is similar to an animated promo, you can upload it onto the web and onto your website, blog, etc, and you can email it to other people and pass it on like an e-card. This is useful when you’re working from home and don’t get to be a part of the action most of the time, you can still introduce yourself virtually to the people you want to be connected with.
You can also use this business animation to talk about a new idea you have or a cause you are a part of, you can mention anything about yourself, to get a job, create a collaboration, or just reach out to people in general. Using animation is a great way for you to demonstrate your ideas in a visual way with graphics and sound. You can talk about anything, do anything you want, there are so many possibilities, you just have to decide what you want your business card to be about.
If you’re an Internet-based company, you could consider creating a business card to introduce yourself to your customers, since they will never actually see you on the street, you can say hello with a little animation and say a few things about yourself. People like to feel connected with other people, so don’t be shy, be friendly and say hello to some of your loyal customers!
There are endless possibilities with animation, and it will help make your business stand out against the other competitors. You have the chance to really project to your audience, so tell them all the great and wonderful things about you and your business. It’s okay to brag, think of it as like an interview, everyone is silently listening and judging you, so you want to make a good impression.
