Franchise Development Video Services

Documentary style video is essential for any growing franchise brand

Buyers spend months and even years researching potential franchise offerings, and documentary-style video engages candidates in ways regular video, text, or other content doesn’t. Our team of professional storytellers can create videos about your brand that stop people in their tracks.

Most of the content we produce for clients is textual or infographic, but a video has risen to be a critical element of any franchise recruitment strategy. Used correctly, franchise video production can significantly extend your site’s reach and make your brand story much stickier with potential candidates.

Video creates trust and transparency and allows the stakeholders in your franchise system to speak directly to a prospect, often long before they’ve requested info from you. Video is here to stay, and we can’t imagine growing a franchise system in today’s market without ongoing investment in engagement, professional video!

“Prospective franchise owners love documentary video because it gives them the most amount of information in the shortest amount of time and creates a deep emotional connection with a brand.” – Thomas Scott

What types of video do I need for franchise development?

Typically, franchise brands assemble a library of emotionally oriented videos. Here’s a typical mix you would start of with:

  1. A compelling brand story video like the ones above – something that explains the value proposition, answers the question, ‘Why Now?” and builds emotional engagement.
  2. Franchisee interviews, documentary movies, and day-in-the-life videos. Prospects want to see what daily life is like, and an inside, cinematic movie about a franchisee in your system WINNING with your franchise can do more to build trust and drive validation than a highly skilled recruiter
  3. Corporate interviews – have common questions prospects ask? Conversational videos are vital to helping candidates self-select early in the process.
  4. Sales process videos – use more targeted content delivered via email drip or text.
  5. Social ad marketing content videos

What does franchise development video cost?

  2. Project-based – have specific needs such as a conference, a new website, or a library of positive franchisee videos? Start a conversation with us, and we’ll develop a scope of work document and work with you on affordable pricing to get what you need.
  3. Video retainers – have ambitious goals for using video in your franchise development marketing? Many clients hire us on monthly retainers. Over the period, we plan out shoots to accomplish your goals and give you a steady stream of new video content to users. This is the most cost-effective way to get high-quality video!
