What’s a video production retainer?

 

A retainer is an agreement between T60 and the customer to work together on a regular, ongoing basis. It sets in place an agreed on amount of work done for a fix cost.

 

What kind of videos do I get?

 

Well… that’s up to both of us! Likely, it’s going to be our Full-Service Storytelling videos; however, we can customize the retainer to meet your video needs.

 

Who should consider a video retainer?

 

B2B / B2C Companies & Non-profits

  • Any business/organization producing videos on a regular basis.
    • Think across departments… marketing, internal communications, HR, etc. They can all share videos produced under the retainer!

Communications Firms: PR, marketing, web design

  • Whether you want to produce videos to promote your own business, your clients’ businesses, or a combination of both.

 

Video Production Retainer Benefits

Time Saver

No more having to research video companies, now you have one ready to go when needed.

Trust

You know the video you’ll be getting is top-notch and the people behind it are easy to work with.

Access

We usually require a signed contract and deposit to secure shoot dates. Retainer customers can reserve potential shoots instantly and make changes when needed.

Integration

Our video crew becomes an extension of your own team, sharing your vision and goals for your communications strategy. You’ll also be able to establish a consistent branding within your videos.

Encouragement

The effectiveness of quality video increases the more videos you produce and share. Having us on retainer will encourage you to keep at it.

Savings

You didn’t think we’d forget about this, did you?! Our average video costs $5500. The bigger the package you buy, the less you pay per video.

Agency Bonus

This one is huge for communications agencies. Having a set fee for video production every month allows you to charge clients appropriately. Spreading the cost across all your clients means they pay for the retainer, not you, and they get professional videos.

Corporate Bonus

Let’s say you work in-house at a company. One way to take the sting out of the retainer cost is to spread it out across a few departments. Marketing, PR, HR, internal communications… they all need videos. If every department kicks-in a little from their budget and share the retainer, all of sudden it’s easier to pay for.

Travel Savings

Normally, when we travel for a shoot outside Chicago or Milwaukee, we charge for the time it takes us to get there and back ($800 per leg of the trip). Sign-on with a retainer and you’ll only pay the travel expenses. That’s at least a $1600 savings right off the top!

Monthly Rollover

You might be wondering… what if we don’t produce a video one month? No problem. Depending on the package you choose (or customize), we’ll allow you to rollover that video to produce it another time later in the year.

 

Have Cameras, Will Travel

While we’re based in the Midwest, we travel the nation telling our customers’ stories.

As mentioned above, our retainer customers get a special perk.

Normally, we charge for the time it takes us to get to and from the shoot. That’s $800 per leg of the trip.

However, our retainer customers only pay the travel expenses, and we don’t fly first-class,  stay at the Ritz, or eat fancy steak dinners. 😉

That’s at least $1600 savings right off the top of every project involving travel.

 

 

Our Customers Love Us

She’s a communications expert you should follow… and one you can trust.
