How we’ve adapted video production during COVID-19

We’re known for some pretty innovative video production. Video, animation, motion graphics—it’s kind of our thing. When COVID first hit last March, clients saw their advertising and marketing plans get… reshuffled, to say it nicely. Digital assets, keywords, and written content had to be changed out to reflect this new reality and a new, very-digital consumer. In many cases, it was fun. Changing things on the fly, getting creative, helping them navigate uncharted waters with new solutions. But there was also that video shoot they were planning. The one that…

What Style of Video is Right For You?

Video has become a powerful tool for branding and marketing, and it’s massive: about 73% of all US adults use YouTube, which makes it the most popular online platform in the country. That means if you want to reach the largest audience, you should be breaking into video. This begs the question: What type of video should you be using? When you look around the internet, you’ll see all different sorts of videos, each of them addressing specific topics in completely different ways, each with varying quality, length, and production…

Happy Holidays from Overit!

Happy Holidays from Overit!

by

It’s been a hard year. For you. For us. For those we love and care about. And we wanted an outlet. Some way of offering catharsis after months and months of isolation, anxiety, stress, frustration, and Zoom fatigue.  So… we torched 2020.  We hope you spend the next couple of weeks safely and cozily, while 2020 burns beside you.  Enjoy it with holiday music … … or just enjoy the sound of a warm, crackling fire slowly burning up the year.   

Google Local Services: 3 Things You Need To Know

Google Local Services: 3 Things You Need To Know

Let’s get this out of the way: If you’re not using Google Local Services, it’s time to fix that.  Yelp is practically irrelevant these days. Facebook reviews are barely hanging on. Those are still important platforms, but Google, of course, is king. Google Local Services advertising helps searchers quickly find and contact a “Google Guaranteed” local business. And if your business isn’t Google Guaranteed, are you even a business at all?  For searchers, GLS is an easy way to find qualified, already-vetted businesses. For businesses, being on GLS means more…

Audio Marketing is More Important (And Older) Than You Might Think

Audio Marketing is More Important (And Older) Than You Might Think

Your favorite guitar riff. Your parent’s voices. The NBC chimes. The “swish” of a basketball going through a net. The sound of rainfall. These are all sounds that went through my head when I started thinking about the idea of audio marketing. No matter what statistics, studies, or expert opinions exist (and we will get into those) there is something fundamental about the human connection to particularly memorable sounds, and how they can elicit feelings of nostalgia, a sense of excitement, or the comfort of familiarity.  Sound is an interesting…

In These Trying Times, Communication Is Hard

One of the unexpected highlights of 2020 is being able to un-sarcastically use the expression “these trying times”. — Joe Hall (@joehall) June 22, 2020 Fifteen weeks. That’s how long it’s been since we were within an arm’s reach of another person not in our immediate household. My household consists of myself and my four-year-old son. That means its been 15 weeks since I’ve had a casual conversation that wasn’t about fruit snacks or jumping on the couch. I’m not proud when I say—its showing. I’ve been over-talking, over-sharing, and…

Now What? Positioning Your Business for #COVID19 Recovery

The drive-in theater near my home had its first showing of the season last Friday. New York beaches will be open for the Memorial Day holiday. Other parts of the country are starting to come back, slowly easing the restrictions that have kept us home since March. As conversations around reopening become more commonplace, businesses are scrambling to build a plan for repositioning, revamping, and recovering post COVID-19. As they do, questions emerge. COVID-19: When Are We Really Back? In our area of NY, May 15 was a date receiving…

In Times of Crisis, Social Media Does Have a Soul

In Times of Crisis, Social Media Does Have a Soul

As I write this, it’s been one month. One month of home quarantine, one month working from home, one month home schooling, and one month straight up missing every single human I know. I hope you’re doing well and you’re finding ways to cope with life both personal and in business. In previous posts, you’ve heard me talk about my neuroscience degree and how, for many years, I studied different aspects of neuroscience. One area that is of particular interest to me is how our brains are wired differently and…

Overit’s WFH Playlist

Overit’s WFH Playlist

Like many others, the Overit Crew is working from home in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. It hasn’t always been easy; even with video chat to keep us in touch with one another, an image on a screen can’t substitute in-person interaction. Frankly, we miss being around one another.  So how can we connect in a world that has made being physically close to others off-limits? At Overit there’s one that sticks out because it is, after all, embedded into the company’s DNA: music. We’ve been sharing the music that’s…

Now Is The Time To Be Human… For More Reasons Than You Think

We are living in a defining moment. One that will be looked back upon as one of the largest catastrophic events to face us. An event that caused millions to suffer, thousands if not hundreds of thousands to die, businesses to collapse, jobs to disappear, debt to skyrocket, 401ks to diminish…you get the point. People are hurting, physically, emotionally, and financially, and are looking out into the world for signs of hope, for empathy, and for compassion. For those businesses fortunate enough to remain open, and even more those that…
