PROMO VIDEOS FOR A FIXED RATE
You know you need video for your business but you have no idea where to start and don’t have thousands of dollars to pay an agency.
Clock Wise Productions has you covered with our new Promo Video Packages:
As a small business we understand the need and importance of video content. Video marketing is exploding all over social media and if you’re a small business that relies on an engaged following, video marketing is a necessity.
The problem: creating video takes a lot of time and if not done well it becomes a zero multiplier (Zero multiplied by the effort you put into video equals, well, you get it).
For years we’ve been committed to teaching small business owners how to create video content that is high quality and effective but so often it’s not enough. If you’re a small business owner, or bootstrap entrepreneur, finding that time to create video yourself can be just as difficult as budgeting to hire a production company to make the video for you.
We’d love to make your business its very own set of videos!
We’re committed that you feel completely taken care of while you’re working with us and that you experience increased:
- Brand Authority, and
- A sense of relief at not having to deal with making your own videos!
Having Clock Wise on our team has been invaluable. Their templates are awesome, they're timely, and clear in their communication. I absolutely recommend them.

We’ve spent the past year developing a series of easily replicate-able video templates that allow us to use your already existing photos and video footage to create engaging, high quality, video promos at a fraction of the cost you would spend on a traditional video promo.
How It Works
Ok, so this is all pretty cool, how does it work?
Glad you asked!
The rest of this page is all about you getting clear about the nitty gritty details so when you order your videos you know exactly what to expect every step of the way.
FORMAT & LENGTH:
We have several different video formats you can request.
We recommend the following to cover all your bases:
- One 25-30 second Horizontal Video - optimized for Youtube, Webpages, and Facebook for Desktop/Tablet
- One 10-15 second Square Video - optimized for Facebook and Instagram
- One 10-15 second Vertical Video - optimized for Mobile
You’re welcome to mix and match any of the video formats. Please keep in mind that you’re allowed only one 30 second video (all our 30 second videos are horizontal).
YOUR MATERIALS: (if you won’t be providing your own materials feel free to scroll down to Stock Footage)
All the videos we create require video footage or photos or both!
After you complete your purchase we’ll ask if you’ll be providing your own photo and/or video footage. If yes, we’ll send a dropbox link for you to upload your materials to. We will ask you to confirm that you have the rights to use the video clips and photo your sending us.
If you only have photo or you only have video don’t worry! We can create visually engaging videos for you with either.
In order to create videos using only your materials we'll need at least:
- 10 Photos (.jpg, .png)
And / Or
- 8 Video Clips (.mov, .mp4)
We'll send you an upload link for your materials within 48 hours of you completing your initial on-boarding form. Please have your materials selected and ready to go!
If you don’t have any of your own photo or video, only have a few options, or are concerned about the quality of your materials that’s not a problem. See our Stock Footage Option Below:
We have a library of over 1,000,000 stock assets, photo and video, that we can use to spice up your promos. If you don’t have any of your own photo or video, only have a few options, or are concerned about the quality of your materials we’re happy to provide stock materials for all of your videos, or supplement your existing materials with stock from our library.
LOGO & BRANDING:
If you want or need your logo on your videos we’d love to make that happen. We can insert your logo as a ‘bug’ on the video (where it’s constantly visible on the top right hand corner for example) or simply have it on the call to action page.
In order to include your logo we’ll need the file with these specifications:
- Photoshop: .psd file
- No background: Alpha channel
We’ll also request the hex numbers for the colors you use in your branding.
We get that writing the script for your video can be intimidating. Writing a script is quite a different challenge than simply writing copy for your webpage or even for a regular Facebook ad.
We’re happy to take care of the script writing for you. Because we’re committed that these videos are in line with your current brand, we will ask you to provide guidance.
After you checkout you’ll complete a form requesting the following:
- 3-7 Keywords
- Your call(s) to action
- 200 words on what you’d like communicated in each of your videos
As soon as you checkout you’ll be sent an email with our onboarding form requesting the details we discussed above.
Within 48 hours of that form being submitted you’ll receive an additional email with upload links for your photo/video/logo/script etc . . ..
Once we receive all required materials from you it should take between 5-7 business days for you to receive your completed videos.
If you’re in need of a rush service please contact us directly here.
VIDEO TEMPLATES EXPLAINED:
What are video templates?
Merriam-Webster defines template as ‘something that establishes or serves as a pattern’. We’ve created several dozen templates to date that serve as the pattern for all the videos we create with our ‘Promo Video Package’.
Our Video Templates are pre-edited videos that contain motion graphics, text fields, are edited to licensed music, and into which we can insert your existing video footage/photos, copy, and branding.
Are there drawbacks working with templates?
The templates themselves are largely set in stone. Because of this we lose a certain amount of flexibility when creating your videos. The motion graphics are already in place, the text fields are established, and the cuts are timed to the licensed music. None of these elements can be changed without creating an entirely new custom video.
Do you do revisions?
Because we’re working with video templates we’re limited in the kinds of revisions that we’re able to make.
- For a one-off package we offer single round of minor text adjustments, changing the overall color-scheme, and replacing individual clips or photos.
- For subscribers we will work with you to make sure you are happy with the result.
Do you do videos with voice-over?
This is not a part of the Promo Video Package. If you require a video with voice over check out our ‘We Do It For You’ page!
Why do you use video templates?
We have 20 years of experience creating high-end, custom video content for small businesses and non-profits. While we love doing this, the face of video marketing is changing. Custom videos take a lot of time and money to make and simply aren’t a practical choice for small businesses that need a steady stream of professional content.
Our video templates allow us to create professional quality videos for you in a relatively short amount of time. Because a bulk of the video production work has already been done, the time and money required to create the video are minimal; then we pass the savings on to you!
Can I use photos and videos in the same template?
It depends, most of our templates have been formatted for photos OR videos. While there are some exceptions most of the videos we create will use just one or the other.
Can you lengthen or shorten the clips you use?
Because we’re working with pre-edited templates, the length of the clips we’re able to use is predetermined. If you have a clip that you really like, we may not be able to use the full thing.
Do I get to select the music for the video?
All the music for the templates has been licensed and the templates have been edited to the music. Because of this we are not able to customise audio for the videos.
Can you do custom videos?
We have 25 years of experience creating high-end custom video content for businesses and non-profits. Please head on over to our ‘We Do It For You’ page and schedule a time to talk.
