Top 10 Reasons to Outsource Your Video Editing

Video editing requires creativity, technical skills, and up-to-date hardware and software to do the job right. A  specialized skill set that requires detail and can be time consuming.  Taking you away from operating other important parts of your business. The solution to this problem is to outsource your video editing needs to professionals. Thankfully, video editing is one of the most outsourced tasks. You can easily outsource video editing for maximum impact on your business marketing efforts.

Here are my top 10 reasons, why this can work to your advantage and help you grow your business or social media channels. Allowing you to rapidly output video marketing content for your business.

1. Video enhancement

Just like everything on the internet, the world of digital marketing changes rapidly, and you need to stay on top of the latest trends in order to be successful. Hiring expert video editors will level-up the production value of your videos. By outsourcing your video editing, you can be sure that your video content will be professional, polished, and up-to-date. A vetted company takes the pressure off, because they are always on the cutting edge of technology, video trends, equipment and techniques.

2. Properly Manage your Time and Resources

We all know that time is money. It doesn’t make good business sense to waste time when a better solution exists. Make sure that you weigh all of your options when it comes to creating video content. At first it may seem like you’ll save time learning and producing your own digital marketing campaign, but take a look at what is involved and how much time and energy you would need to spend. If you are already stretched thin on time, you may want to consider hiring a team like SA Studios NYC, who can act as a partner and manage your project from start to finish.

Working with one-off freelancers can be time consuming. You have to find freelancers on your own or work with a freelancing agency, interview and vet potential candidates and then continuously manage them to ensure you receive the quality of work you desire.

3.Scale Quickly and Smartly

Outsourcing video editing allows you to compete and grow your video content quickly. Some of the most successful companies out there have turned themselves into full scale media companies. Building the type of infrastructure to support that is an incredibly difficult task, and it may not be necessary (or even possible) for every company out there.

Putting together the infrastructure to support an in-house video production team can be expensive for most companies (purchasing equipment, training and systems required etc). Evaluating the video marketing needs of your business. Your content needs will be different than other companies, and likely there is no need for you to become a full scale media production facility. And while those big companies can afford it and it definitely helps them scale and grow quickly, it may not be the best option for you.

But that doesn’t mean that you cannot scale quickly just like the big players. You just have to be smart about where you invest your money. Sometimes hiring someone that already has the infrastructure and talent network is a better investment than building it into your company. This will also allow you to adapt and react based on your specific needs and budget without carrying any in-house overhead or time commitments.

4. Expert resources

Your video editor will always give you an unbiased opinion about your videos. These editors are creative professionals, and their expert advice is very valuable. You can’t put a price on this kind of opinion.

5. Shoot more, edit less

The time you save from editing videos is the time that you can invest in shooting more videos! By having more content to edit, you are growing your channel and your business.

6. Effective storytelling

Having a different point of view is always important while telling a visual story. Your video editor can help you with this. Video editors know how to begin and end a video, and what information to put in the middle of it. They will take the content that you have to offer, and mold it into a story that makes sense to your audience. This will help you to attract an even bigger audience in the long run.

7. Remove Inefficiencies

There are a lot of inefficiencies in most digital marketing content campaigns, and inefficiencies mean wasted time and money. If you are looking to scale your content and take advantage of this new trend online without losing money, it most likely means you need to find ways to produce that content more efficiently. Oftentimes, this means outsourcing your content creation to a team who has the experience to produce quality content efficiently.

“Most companies end up spending a lot of money on video production, and the worst part about it is that a large portion of the money isn’t even going to creative execution. As a business owner, you know that your dollars must be spent in an effective way in order to see the most return on investment. So if you are going to invest your money in video production (and keep up with this massive video trend), look for ways to invest smart. Make sure your dollars go to what is most important – the creative talent and execution.

8. Subtitles

You can ask your video editing services to provide you with subtitles, which is really great for your viewers and how many people you reach with your content. People enjoy watching videos without sound if they’re in a public place and don’t want others to hear what they’re watching. And, those who are deaf enjoy watching videos just as much as anyone else. Having subtitles is really important because they allow anyone to watch your videos at any time. You will reach more people, and your followers will appreciate being able to watch a video anywhere, anytime.

9. Repurposing content

With an editing service, you can always repurpose your content. For example, chopping small snippets for Instagram and Facebook stories is something you can do with every single video you have. Every social media channel has different needs, dimensions, and user interaction. You can get your one video edited to other social media guidelines. Just a few videos can lead to thousands of posts, and even more likes, comments, and shares, which will ultimately reach more people and grow your following.

10. Earn more

When you have a team to edit your videos, you can focus more on building your brand, reaching out to people and brands for collaboration and opportunities. This will double your chances to earn and grow more.

As you can see, outsourcing your content to a team of professional video editors can save you time, and money. So you can focus on growing your channel and business. Video editing can often be delegated to experts with the artistry and training. Outsourcing is a cost effective option available to any business willing to grow and acquire required services as efficiently and as quickly as possible. This business solution offers high-quality output without burning through your time and money.
